A pop cultural revival 

& & by Mike Corrigan & & & &





Dig those crazy Kroffts? Want to revisit all those insane shows, characters and lost worlds? Here's a few places to look:


Rhino Video is the place for reissues of your favorite Krofft masterwork on VHS and DVD. Shows currently available include episodes of Land of the Lost, Lidsville, H.R. Pufnstuf, The Lost Saucer, ElectraWoman & amp; DynaGirl, The Bugaloos, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters and Far Out Space Nuts. Completists will want to check into the Pufnstuf and Sigmund box sets, which contain every episode of both programs.


The book Pufnstuf & amp; Other Stuff: The Weird and Wonderful World of Sid & amp; Marty Krofft by David Martindale (1998, Renaissance Books) is a great, photo-packed program guide that charts the television career of the brothers Krofft and the evolution of the shows they created together.


Looking for Puf and his pals online? Check out the Krofft Internet Fan Network at www.krofft.net. Also of interest is www.yesterdayland.com, which contains the dope on kid shows (including Krofft) spanning the entire history of television.


E! Entertainment Television recently premiered "H.R. Pufnstuf and the Strange World of Sid and Marty Krofft: The E! True Hollywood Story." This one-hour installment revealed the behind-the-scenes drama on many of the brother's television shows of the 1970s and '80s and included interviews with the Kroffts and many of the show's actors. If you missed it (like I did), check your TV listings for a repeat airing.
