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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time they reissued this! July 19, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I saw a bootleg letterboxed copy of this about seven or eight years ago at a friend's house up in Northern California, and I was astonished. All this is, really, is a 90-minute "H.R. Pufnstuf" episode, but it's one of the best ones ever conceived. In keeping with the times (and, quite possibly, the film's "real" potential audience) there are quickly intercut visual effects that look like they were stolen from the "Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite" section of "2001" throughout. It's a little thin plotwise (who watches this stuff for plot, anyway?), but there are plenty of musical numbers to keep the viewer entertained and amused. It's worth the price of admission alone to see Mama Cass Eliot (she plays Witchiepoo's friend Witch Hazel - yuk yuk) talking on the telephone while sitting in a bathtub full of food! Sadly, there's no "See You Next Week!" sign-off at the end of the movie, which may disappoint some. That's just a small quibble, though. Fans of Sid & Marty Krofft's work shouldn't miss out on this, and it also deserves shelf space in the collection of any fan of camp or Psychotronic stuff. Incredible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to see this movie in widescreen! May 23, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood Memories Come Alive November 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Just bought the video. I remember this television show with fond memories and was so looking forward to this movie finally coming on video. I saw it years ago on the Disney Channel. Now all these years later it still hasn't lost any of it's charm. My only complaint is that on the video box it list Martha Raye as the original Witchiepoo but as anyone who is a Pufnstuf fanatic will know that it is a misprint and Billie Hayes is and will always be Witchiepoo. Now I wait for it to come out on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars "PUFNSTUF"... THE NEXT "WIZARD OF OZ"??? August 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"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.
