There is much going on in The World Of Sid and Marty Krofft. From books to movies, and old TV shows/movies coming to the internet. This is a great time to be a fan of Krofft Productions. Here are some of the various projects:
Love to Love You Bradys
Ted Nichelson, Susan Olsen and Lisa Sutton have teamed up to bring you Love to Love you Bradys: The Bizarre Story of The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, an in-depth look at the most disastrous offering in television history. This is a must get book for any fan of The Bradys and/or Sid and Marty. The official site describes it:
In this colorful, glitter-filled retrospective Susan and her co-author Ted Nichelson investigate in very Brady detail how and why the rarely seen Variety Hour was conceived, produced, and ended up ranked in TV Guide’s top five “Worst Shows of All-Time.” Behind the scenes, this production was chock full of very serious human conflict: drug addiction, sexuality, weight issues, religion, and heated power struggles – all ultimately shattering the Bradys’ perfect image and forever scarring the legacy of TV’s favorite family.
Pufnstuf Movie Comes To iTunes and DVD
Throw away that old fuzzy VHS copy you got in the 90s from your friend on USENET. The original H.R. Pufnstuf Movie is now available on DVD and iTunes alike. Originally released after the cancellation of the TV Show, the movie has all the returning cast with the addition of Martha Raye as Boss Witch. At times it appears to be a prequel to the series, but I’ve always interpreted as a alternative to the series. And, I wasn’t kidding about that old-VHS tape. The copy I had (until the DVD) was a fuzzy-VHS I got from a guy in Australia about 12 years ago.
This is a must have for Pufnstuf fans!
Pufnstuf Complete Series on iTunes
After you get your movie DVD, head on over to iTunes to get the complete H.R. Pufnstuf Series! This is the show that we all know and love. Get the series at iTunes can be expensive, so if you look around you might find the DVD set still available.
Land of the Lost in Theaters Soon!!
It’s almost here. On June 5th, Will Ferrell brings Rick Marshall to the screen in Sid and Marty Krofft’s Land of the Lost. I’ve had many misgivings about this movie since it was announced. I like Ferrell in most cases, but was worried about LOTL turning into a “Will Ferrell movie”. The addition of Anna Friel got me excited as I feel she is an amazing actress, and can go toe-to-toe with Ferrell. The trailers at first made me worried again, but I’ve since decided to just sit back and enjoy. Enjoy the fact that Sid and Marty are back on the big screen, and see what they have to offer. Here is the latest trailer…
