This one goes under the guilty pleasures category. Some of it is downright cringeworthy, but there is undeniable nostalgia for those of us of a certain age who watched these shows way back when. I think what I admire about some of these Krofft productions is the over the top performances of actors like Billie Hayes and Martha Raye, the clever costuming and the creative ways that these programs were pulled off, one after the other, on what seems to be a miniscule budget, with unabashedly campy performances and that sense of "make believe" that comes naturally to children. These actors were really working with next to nothing but a crazy concept and cheap props, but I think it was enough for their target audience. The four stars does not stand for high proudction values, because there really aren't any in evidence, but more for the sheer audaciousness of the Krofft brothers for promoting this kooky stuff and for the simple magic they offered during a much simpler time for kids. Hey, HR Pufnstuf is so out there that it would probably make a wild movie if a worthy studio got behind it. If you have a tolerance for Land of the Lost, Shazam and Isis, then you really ought to pick this little collection up for the sake of posterity.

Brings back memories March 10 2013
By The Dabbling Mum - Published on Amazon.com

Oh my was Dyna Girl and Electra Woman dorky... and yet, I remember liking the show as a kid... maybe it was simply because they were female heroines.

This little compilation is a fun look at earlier times, and a cheap walk down memory lane. My husband and I laughed so much and yet were quite impressed with how well HR Puff 'n Stuff and the Bugaloos held up.

Crazy and fun July 24 2013

You may have remembered this fondly as a child, but, as an adult, you will be shocked at how strange it is. It's not a bad thing, just something to be prepared for. And maybe a reason to pick it up for yourself!

NOSTALGIC AND FUN FOR THOSE OF US WHO GREW UP IN A VERY DIFFERENT WORLD! July 1 2011
By ! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b - Published on Amazon.com

Sid and Marty Krofft may not have made great television, but they did make shows that kids would remember for the rest of their lives. This DVD showcases 7 different shows that the duo created featuring one episode each from each series. The episodes are approx. 24 minutes long and look quite good considering the source material.

H.R. Puffnstuff is probably the most famous series, but every Saturday morning kid has his personal favorite. To be honest, while I enjoyed watching this "hits" DVD, I would find it hard to sit through most of these show's complete series. I would have liked the set to include one episodes from all the series the Korfft's produced instead of only seven shows.To clear up some confusion, the DVD includes the seven episodes and only a concept art gallery, there are no on screen interviews or any pilot episodes from shows produced or scrapped.

All in all, I bought this for under $10 bucks and for the trip down memory lane, it was worth it. If this set had included an episode from all their productions, the Horror Hotel Pilot and a feature with the Krofft's, this would be a must have for fans of cereal munching Saturday morning kid fare!
