Looking back on these, you can't help but realize how much work actually went into creating these and just how wacky they were!
For those of you that don't know, these are all live action shows with actors, sometimes in makeup and costumes interacting with children and adults. They are the shows that a generation of kids, myself included, grew up on and were quite the inspiration for creative thinking. One might even draw
parallels to these shows for some modern renditions (think Pee-Wee Herman who also grew up on these). They were all broadcast in full screen (think square) format which almost seems foreign and the copies used to create these must not have been masters as some episodes appear grainy. For those collectors out there this isn't really a great DVD as the quality is lacking and is especially noticeable in the Sigmond And The Sea Monsters episode as there is a noise line on the left of the picture. But overall for the money, this is an excellent and very affordable way to go back in time and relive some moments from your childhood or expose your children to something a little different.
The episodes are as follows:
H.R. Pufnstuf - Show Biz Witch S01E03 21:30
Sigmond And The Sea Monsters - Make Room For Big Daddy S01E11 23:53
The Bugaloos - The Great Voice Robbery S01E03 21:43
Lidsville - Mark And The Bean Stalk S01E09 22:18
Electra Woman And Dyna Girl - Ali Baba Part 1 & 2 S01E07-E08 23:25
Wonderbug - Go West Young Schlepcar S01E01 Schlepnapped S01E02 Total 23:21
Bigfoot And Wildboy - UFO Part 1 & 2 S01E04 24:15
There is also a collection of 25 still pictures of some drawings and artwork from the shows.
H.R. Puffnstuff is probably the most famous series, but every Saturday morning kid has his personal favorite. To be honest, while I enjoyed watching this "hits" DVD, I would find it hard to sit through most of these show's complete series. I would have liked the set to include one episodes from all the series the Korfft's produced instead of only seven shows.To clear up some confusion, the DVD includes the seven episodes and only a concept art gallery, there are no on screen interviews or any pilot episodes from shows produced or scrapped.
All in all, I bought this for under $10 bucks and for the trip down memory lane, it was worth it. If this set had included an episode from all their productions, the Horror Hotel Pilot and a feature with the Krofft's, this would be a must have for fans of cereal munching Saturday morning kid fare!
