I grew up watching all these shows, from Hr to the Lost Saucer, and the rest of them I think Land Of The Lost was my favorite, and still is. This Dvd has all the Pilot episodes of all the S&M shows. These brought back such great memories, of me getting up on those very early Saturday mornings, with cereal bowl and spoon in hand,sitting in front of the old RCA console tv....

Only 3 stars because these don't hold up real well, and your kids will probably think it's lame.

The first episode of a group of totally bizarre kids' TV shows that I grew up with. Nice that there's a "play all" option, so you can have a weird visual on your big-screen TV in the background of your psychedelic party.

Some may count the 1980s as the last great decade of pop culture. I disagree. The first half of the 80s was undoubtedly influential, but it was a continuation of the individuality of the previous decade. Around the halfway mark, the 80s gave way to the lack of personality blandness that saturated the 1990s (and beyond, to today). Rather, the 1970s was the last decade of pop heaven, and Saturday Morning With Sid and Marty Kroft serves well as the Calgon to take us away to that Neverland time capsule.

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.

This video has brought back so many memories from when I was a young child. I now have a young boy who is really into pirates and it happened to be that the episodes that this video has on it has to do with pirates, so he has also really enjoyed watching with me. I ordered this for Christmas and it was delivered within an exceptional time frame. I will definately continue to order through Amazon

This video is absolutely fantastic. great memories came back to me. My 4 year old twins love it! Just as much as I did. Its one of their favorite videos. They love the old stuff and so did my older children. We have the complete land of the lost series and this one and my next goal is to get the electric company and the new zoo revue. I am amazed at how much my children love it as much as I did and prefer these to today's shows. Definately would be a good investment.
