Only 3 stars because these don't hold up real well, and your kids will probably think it's lame.
This Rhino DVD collection of pilot episodes will probably be best enjoyed with a bowl of Quisp cereal and some full blown Vitamin D milk. None of that wimpy 2 % or skim crap (you might also enjoy a bowl of Quake, if you can find it). Now, slip into a plaid robe, a pair of fuzzy house slippers, kick all those boring hyper-realists out of the house. Then, turn on the TV and hit play. DO NOT fall into the temptation of using the remote control (Yes, it's a DVD, but let's try to get as close to the genuine experience as we can). Throw the pillows on the shag rug carpet and let the cartoons begin.
The pilots assembled here make for a grand psychedelic starter kit, but some are surprisingly subdued; the series would reach higher planes of inspired lunacy later. No matter. Sid and Marty Krofft stuck to their idiosyncratic formula, which was characterized by prepubescent heroes and heroines, puppet comedy relief, knee-tapping kitsch songs and (badly) canned laughs from the laugh track. It is extremely doubtful that the Krofft Brothers were insightful or perceptive enough to realize just how surreal their macrocosm was. Yes, for me, Sid and Marty Krofft are big bold, dopey examples of naive surrealism.Read more ›

Hanna-Barbera. Rankin-Bass. Sid & Marty Krofft. Those were magic names to me as a kid in the `70s. There was something magical about the bizarre, illogical worlds they created. Read morePublished on August 20, 2012 by Zack Davisson

The Krofft shows are just as pleasingly bad as you remember. The Si Rose interview is excellent. But I am still scratching my head as to why George Lopez is doing commentary on the... Read morePublished on September 9, 2009 by J. Fudge
