And now, a little of my own childhood for you to taste…

From wackily colorful producers, Sid & Marty Krofft, comes Pufnstuf 1970 family comedy filled with mirth, magic and music.

After a bad day at school, Jimmy (Jack Wild, Oliver!) runs to the shore to play his flute, but he can’t believe his eyes when his ordinary flute comes to life! When a magical talking boat appears, he boards the ship only to discover that it has been sent by an evil witch named Witchiepoo to keep him prisoner and take his flute. It’s up to the fantastic dragon H.R. Pufnstuf and his comical companions, Cling and Clang, to come to the rescue in an adventure beyond anyone’s wildest imagination.

Capitalizing on the previous year’s popular TV show of the same name, this film version was directed by TV veteran Hollingsworth Morse (Zorro, The Lone Ranger) and co-stars Billie Hayes (The Black Cauldron), Martha Raye (Jumbo), Billy Barty (Foul Play), Felix Silla (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century) and music legend ‘Mama’ Cass Elliot.
