In Honor of the Holiday…

Ever delve into the world of Sid and Marty Krofft?  It’s a pretty trippy ride.  I used to watch the show H.R. Pufnstuf on Saturday mornings as a kid (as did my mother when she was a kid) and I couldn’t help but have flashbacks to Puff the Magic Dragon.

H.R. Pufnstuf was a show about a boy, Jimmy, and his magic flute, Freddy.  One day they decide to jump on a friendly boat which then turns out to be owned by the evil witch, Witchiepoo, who shipwrecks them on Living Island.  Jimmy is rescued by the Mayor of Living Island, H.R. Pufnstuf and his friends.  Adventures ensue…

The show was littered with drug references (come on “puffin’ stuff”??) but check out the intro.  It kind of gives you an idea of what it was all about…
