Editorial Reviews

From Land of the Lost producers, Sid & Marty Krofft, comes a family comedy filled with mirth, magic and music. After a bad day at school, Jimmy runs to the shore to play his flute, but he can’t believe his eyes when his ordinary flute comes to life! When a magical talking boat appears, he boards the ship only to discover that it has been sent by an evil witch named Witchiepoo to keep him prisoner and take his flute. It’s up to the fantastic dragon H.R. Pufnstuf and his comical companions, Cling and Clang, to come to the rescue in an adventure beyond anyone’s wildest imagination.

I will start by saying I grew up on H.R. Pufnstuf. And I saw this movie in a theatre when I was eight years old. So it's a big blast from the past for me.

The film is great. Not anything Oscar-worthy, but it's highly entertaining from start to finish. The music is really good, in a groovalicious sort of '60s way. Not generic, either. I still hum these melodies and sing the lyrics nearly 40 years after its release! The solid music score and songs are topped off by the outstanding "Different" sung by Mama Cass. What a great number! This is her one and only feature film as an actress, and at least she makes a memorable impression. She's genuinely funny as the gossipy, over-the-top, jealous Witch Hazel. And her scenes with Billie Hayes (Witchipoo) are the best in the movie. Then there's Jack Wild, who manages to be "sincere" in this crazy world of oversized puppets, painted flat sets, and piano-wire special effects.

As for the DVD---it's a very strong release. Picture quality is highly respectable for the most part, even if it's not a fully remastered print. The colors are vibrant and true, and the picture is clear even with some (expected) film grain throughout. And the 2.0 mono mix is strong. The music and dialogue sound rich and clear. The best part is that this DVD has been mastered in anamorphic widescreen (aka "enhanced for 16x9 TVs). I have not seen this movie in widescreen since I was eight. And it really feels like a movie now, rather than an expanded episode of the TV show.

Minor quibbles: There are times throughout the film where it goes out of sync. Only for certain shots or scenes, most notably during the big "Living Island" production number toward the very beginning.

"Pufnstuff" is, of course, the feature film version of Sid and Marty Kroft's popular series "H.R. Pufnstuf" from 1969. In fact, the film is exactly like the series, but stretched out to around 90 minutes. Feeling rejected at home and school, Jimmy (Jack Wild) discovers that his flute is actually a magic, talking golden flute named Freddy. Jimmy and Freddy are lured away on a boat belonging to the wacky Witchiepoo (the outragous Billie Hayes), who plots to steal Freddy for herself. Escaping the boat, Jimmy and Freddy land on Living Island, a fantastic place with Hippie Trees, Evil Trees, Talking Clocks, Talking Books, a house that sneezes, and even stranger inhabitants. Jimmy and Freddy are rescued by Mayor H.R. Pufnstuff, a tall dragon who speaks in a Southern drawl, Dr. Blinky, an owl, Cling and Clang, and assorted other characters. Witchiepoo's attempts to nab Jimmy and Freddy are always thwarted by Pufnstuf and pals, who also thoroughly ruin Witchiepoo's chance at being named "Witch Of The Year."
The added theatrical trailer describes "Pufnstuf" as "the most magical, musical film since "The Wizard Of Oz." I wouldn't go quite that far, although their are some obvious similarities. Both films feature psychedelic/surrealistic colors and characters; the very American Dorothy is chased around Oz by a truly frightening Witch who wants the magic Ruby Slippers; the very British Jimmy is chased around Living Island by the truly wacky and silly Witchiepoo, who wants the magic flute. The film belongs to Billie Hayes and the Witches who gather at the castle for a Convention, singing a fun song titled "Zap The World." Some of these Witches appear to be men in drag (including Billy Barty), which gives "Pufnstuf" some added "camp value", not that it needs anymore.

The movie that was inspired by the Sid and Marty Krofft television series is now released on DVD. Jack Wild stars as Jimmy, a downtrodden British boy who is kicked out of band practice and rushes off. Along the way he notices the transformation of his real regular flute, to the talking flute with a diamond skin condition named Freddie. After shortly( and I mean shortly) becoming good friends, Jimmy and Freddie Flute board a talking ship that takes them for an eventful ride. Billie Hayes plays Witchiepoo, a lackluster but enthusiastic witch who yearns to capture Freddie and become witch of the year at the next convention of witches. But in order to become witch of the year officially, she needs to impress the Boss Witch who is played by the ever delightful Martha Raye. But the forces of good and happiness, led by the golden dragon known as H.R Pufnstuf, want to make sure that Jimmy and Freddie stay safe. But Witchiepoo just can't keep her mouth shut, and brags to her so called friend Witch Hazel, played by the late and extremely great Mama Cass Elliot, that Freddie Flute is within her grasp. This leads to Boss Witch bringing the witches convention to Living Island(the place where Pufnstuf and his courageous crew reside). Will Jimmy, Freddie, and Pufnstuf overcome Witchiepoo and drive the witches off? Buy this DVD and find out for yourself.

A great family movie.

Look! A talking hippie tree in a colorful land where everything talks! Must be the land where Jimmy's talking flute came from! The amazing thing about Pufnstuf the movie is how quickly things can go from sunny and happy, to dark and menacing. Even 30 something years after I saw it the first time, that witchie poo is still one scary lady! Even more so when you contrast her to the happy and hapless, dim yet good-hearted Pufnstuf! And when the wind starts to howl and once-inanimate objects suddenly take on a life of their own and come after you - you know you're in Pufnstuf land! Now granted I don't think it's gonna give me nightmares this time, but it did the first time, and I still remember them to this day! I may not have even finished the movie the first time I saw it. Perhaps my parents took me out of the theatre. The witch and her ghouls roastin Pufnstuf on a spit over a fire at night is an image I'd remember even decades later, after seeing this movie first time as a 3 or 4-year-old. So may want to avoid showing this to very small childen. The older ones ought to survive - if it can even keep their interest.

A note on the production. Pretty solid I thought. I found the picture bright and clear. It didn't seem cropped to me but I don't have the original to compare with. It's presented in wide-screen. The voices seemed to sync up fine as well. Maybe I wasn't paying attention. Finally, there ARE English subtitles (YES!), something sorely missed in the original DVD edition of Land of the Lost.

It's interesting to revisit this movie. Sid and Marty Krofft productions were low budget affairs - but what they lacked in cash and special effects, they surely made up for in atmospheric and imaginative stories.
