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.

NOSTALGIC AND FUN FOR THOSE OF US WHO GREW UP IN A VERY DIFFERENT WORLD! May 7 2014
By DR SHOCK - 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!

70's Saturday Morning Classics Dec 9 2014
By Mark J. House - Published on Amazon.com

H.R. Pufnstuf, Bugaloos, Lidsville, Sigmund & the Sea Monsters, Wonderbug, Bigfoot & Wildboy, and Electrawoman & Dynagirl are all included in this Krofft Supershow collection! The Krofts have produced family shows for over 50 years and became a Saturday morning mainstay in the 1970's with live action cartoons. Filmation was their number one competitor with shows like Ark 2, Space Academy, and Shazam with Isis(the comic book hero, not the terrorist group) thrown in for good measure. The Kroffts aimed more at the younger groups of kids from 4-12 years old while Filmation aimed at teenagers with teaching morals and presenting them with more adult challenges like minor crime(trespassing, theft, etc.) and survival skills(forest, etc.). Filmation had the advantage in special effects and Star Wars used one of their sets from Space Academy(the white colored hallways seen on Leia's ship when Vader boarded it on A New Hope). Although the Kroffts did not have that level of a budget, they were out to entertain little kids, not teens. I feel that both parties/companies did an OUTSTANDING job with the age groups they targeted and there are kids these days that watch Ark 2, Space Academy, and Secrets of Isis and love it and ask me why they stopped making them/it! I am begging Hollywood to bring back Filmation, if not both Filmation and the Krofft Supershow, maybe with only minor upgrades. Filmation would need only more modern colorization due to it's clearly large budget for back then. The Krofft Supershow would probably want to get rid of Lidsville but keep the rest. For the teens that watched Electrawoman & Dynagirl they got a treat. These two women were H...O...T! Isis(Joanna Cameron) from Filmation was my first crush! You get the idea. If you like family friendly stuff that will not skullwash your child, then you want this. Or maybe you just want a "blast from the past?" Go for it!

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.
