The Bugaloos – Senses Of Our World

This beautiful song and performance from the early 1970s Sid and Marty Krofft TV show  “The Bugaloos” really made me happy.

The Altered State of Drugachusetts

A few weeks ago I published a post about HR Pufnstuf the classic psychedelic children TV show of the 1960s.

In the late 1990s the HBO show “MR . Show with Bob and David” featured a short parody of the show called “The Altered Sates of Drugachusetts”, and even you don’t know the original show (Pufnstuf) this is one of the funniest psychedelic parodies I’ve ever scence.

HR Pufnstuf : The Magic Path – Sid and Marty Krofft

25 Jan

HR Pufnstuf is a  highly psycheelic children show which ran on American television in 1969, created by Sid and Marty Krofft.

Over the years the show has had a cult following on account of claims for drug references in the show. According to Wikipedia ‘”Pufnstuf” has been interpreted as a reference to smoking hand-rolled (H.R.) marijuana (puffin’ stuff).

There is something very psychedelic indeed in “Living Island”, that curious piece of land (or headspace) where everything is alive, and in which Jimmy lands. With lots of magic mixed in, and some pretty crazy humor the show is quite fun to watch, even 45 years after it’s original broadcast. It certainly hasn’t lost its charm. Only downside to it, is that once I started watching it a few weeks ago I can’t get the title song out of my head. Bewarned!

Here is the first episode of the series in which “Jimmy and his magic flute Freddy are lured to Living Island and trapped there by Witchiepoo’s trickery when she makes the Magic Path disappear.”
