My handsome fiancee introduced me to the oddball world of Sid and Marty Krofft just a few years ago, and for my last birthday he had gotten me the box set of "HR Pufnstuf." No doubt I will enjoy watching that for years to come, but out of all the nostalgic Krofft shows created, "Lidsville" is the one I love the most. This kooky program debuted on Saturday morning television way back in 1972, visually becoming a predecessor for the off-the-wall jokes and puppetry of "Pee Wee's Playhouse." However, unlike "HR Pufnstuf" and "The Bugaloos," "Lidsville" was specifically intended to entertain an older audience. I must warn all Moms and Dads that some of the imagery and dialogue in the 17 episodes may be a little too disturbing for small children.
Ex-Munsters child star Butch Patrick plays Mark, an ordinary all-American teenager who becomes mesmerized by a magic show performed at a Six Flags amusement park. Determined to uncover the secrets behind Merlo's sleight-of-hand illusions, he sneaks into a dressing room and accidentally falls through a gigantic top hat. Bewildered beyond his wildest imagination, he gets stranded in the heart of Lidsville, a strange and psychedelic town populated by talking hats. With the help of a clumsy but loveable Genie named Weenie (played by Pufnstuf's Billie Hayes), Mark is forced to dodge the clutches of Horatio J. Hoodoo (Charles Nelson Reily), a powerful and diabolical green-faced magician who is clearly the star in the cast. Time and time again, Hoodoo uses his most wicked tactics to imprision Mark in his dungeon, enslave Weenie, and force Lidville's Good Hat people to pay their taxes.

These episodes are the funniest ever by the Sid and Marty Krofft group, almost singlehandedly by the evil magician Hoodoo, played by Charles Nelson Reilly. Also Raunchy Rabbit (move back flunkie). I used to crack up watching Match Game from Reilly's comments but never knew why. He is hilarious without even trying. Lidsville is a bland silly show that is perfect to watch when your either staying ay home sick, or if your under the influence. "I could just scream."

"Lidsville" is my favorite of Sid and Marty Krofft's classic, live-action Saturday morning shows from the early 1970's. And it is one trippy tale. Fascinated after watching a magic act, Mark ("The Munsters'" Butch Patrick) falls down a giant magician's hat and lands in loopy Lidsville, inhabited by talking hats! Mark is befriended by the Good Hats, including British Col. Poom, Miss Ring-A-Ding (a party hat), Nursy, the chinese Mr. Chow, Tonsolini (an Opera Singing Hat), Mother Wheels (a motorcycle/helmet), Rah-Rah (a football helmet), etc. and Weenie (Billie Hayes), a rather inept but kind-hearted Genie. The versatile Hayes, best known as Witchiepoo on "H.R. Pufnstuff", comments that she was offered the role of Weenie The Genie (a male role) after Billy Barty became ill, although Barty denied that the role was created specifically for him. There are also the Bad Hats, who are the flunkies of the evil magician Horatio Hoo-Doo (Charles Nelson Reilly). Hoo-Doo is furious at the Good Hats for not acknowledging him as their Lord and Master, and not paying him taxes. He also hates "that brat Mark" for continually helping the Good Hats plan revolts against him. He flies in the skies over Lidsville in his Hattermerand, zapping the Good Hats. But, no matter how nasty Hoo-Doo is, he is continually out-witted by Mark, Weenie The Genie, and the Good Hats. Director Tony Charmoli presides over the fantasy/insanity. The episodes usually end with a moral, a song or two (by Les Szvaris and Charles Fox), and Hoo-Doo exclaiming, "I want my Mommy Hoo-Doo!" The rather horrible Mommy Hoo-Doo, who fears her son Horatio is not "rotten" enough, does appear in the final episode.Read more ›

Okay, Let get this outta the way first. Lidsville is pure Krofft Brothers family fare. It is clear family entertain in a Disney like vein. It is pure Saturday Morning TV from the 1970's. So, If you like H.R. Puffnstuf or Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, you will love this.

Mark (Butch Patrick aka Eddie Munster)watches a magician at a show. He goes back stage and is sucked into the magician top hat. He enter a bizzarre world of talking hats and its overlord Hoo Doo (Charles Nelsen Relly). He is aided in his survival by Genie (Billy Haynes AKA Witchy-Poo from PuffnStuff)

There are a few commentary from the Krofft Brothers, Butch Patrick and Billy Hayes on some episodes. also there is interviews with all three leads. Too Bad Charles Nelson Relly didn't do a commentary

this complete series, These 17 episodes, are well done for 1970's kid fare. The DVD masters are cleaner than most 1970's stuff (see my Lancelot Link Secret Chimp review). So if you are a fan of the Krofft Stuff or 1970 SATURDAY MORNING FARE, Go get it, it worth it..if you aren't, don't !
