Bugaloos Movie in the works



LOS ANGELES (The Hollywood Reporter) — Universal Pictures-based Jersey Films has optioned the feature film rights to the The Bugaloos, Sid and Marty Krofft’s 1970-72 psychedelic Saturday morning series on NBC.

The live-action puppet production followed the antics of a group of teenage insects — Joy, Harmony, IQ and Courage — who formed a rock group called the Bugaloos. Band members spoke in English dialects and hung out with their firefly friend Sparky, who often got into trouble with the group’s nemesis Benita Bizarre, a tone-deaf witch living inside a jukebox.
