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.
The Bugaloos and Bigfoot and Wildboy were not shows I was familiar with AT ALL. Maybe they were regional or something, but in southern California, I don't remember these ever being on. Both of these are pretty bad. I would have really preferred an episode or two of Land of the Lost instead. Certainly it's far more well known. Everyone knows Pufnstuff but a smaller number of people were familiar with Lidsville - both are crazy and similar - and I have the entire set of both of these. Primarily, I bought this for Electra Woman & Dyna Girl and for Wonderbug. I loved Electra Woman SO much. Pretty much, I was drawn to all the female superheroes and the like - loved Isis, Wonder Woman, even Charlie's Angels. But Electra Woman was just SO cool to me. I loved that there is a two-part episode on this DVD, so you get two full episodes of this show. Same is true of Wonderbug. There are two separate Wonderbug episodes on the disc and they are both really fun.
I think this is a fun, and really inexpensive way to bring back really cool childhood memories. I don't think that most people would be interested in buying a full series of most of these shows, but having a sampling of all of these is definitely worth the cheap purchase price. It would be fun to have a 70's party and have this playing!
