Editorial Reviews

The Kuklapolitan Players and their creator, Burr Tillstrom, are back in the first DVD of the earliest episodes of the Peabody and Emmy-award-winning series.

Order from The Burr Tillstrom Copyright Trust to receive the latest edition of Volume 1, which contains higher quality re-transfers of certain episodes not seen in the earlier editions of Vol. 1 sold by other sellers.

KFO is unique in television history: a live, ad-libbed, daily puppet show watched by more adults than children. Filled with references to the theater, opera, and current events, it counted Orson Welles, Katharine Hepburn, John Steinbeck, Tallulah Bankhead, and Adlai Stevenson among its many adult fans.

Burr Tillstrom’s ability to create over a dozen distinct characters (he was the only puppeteer) and his rapport with Fran Allison were essential to the show’s humor and believability.

The 20 black-and-white kinescopes in the set have undergone extensive audio and video restoration to provide the best possible presentation.

All episodes are presented complete and uncut, with commercials included. For a list of the episodes in the set, visit kukla.tv

The Washington Post
"The most authentically classic episodes are being released and they are, encouragingly, as wonderful as a former fan is likely to remember them."

The New York Times
"Irresistibly appealing...the Kuklapolitans must have seemed like welcome emissaries from a world where violence was unknown, and tensions could be resolved with the nuzzle of a felt nose. They scarcely seem less so now."

DVD Talk
"This is a great set that will hopefully find its way into a lot of DVD collections. Highly recommended."

TV Worth Watching
"This simple show couldn't be wittier or more clever. What a surprise delight!"
