I wasn't born when H.R. Pufnstuf first aired on tv, but for me, it bring back memories of adoring Jack Wild from being the age of about 4 or 5. Jimmy in H.R. Pufnstuf is probably the role he is known best for, along with the cheeky Artful Dodger in Oliver!. H.R. Pufnstuf is a brilliant family show about a giant salamander who is the mayor of Living Island, and helps Jimmy who washes ashore the island after the evil witch, Witchiepoo tried to steal his magic, golden flute Freddie (with 'a diamond skin condition').
It's an absolute classic of a show, and unfortunately didn't run for many episodes. It would probably appeal to fans of shows such as The Muppets, Magic Roundabout, and any Jim Henson puppet-based show or film. It's quite a strange show, so be prepared for that, but that doesn't mean that it's not absolutely brilliant with genius scriptwriting. I encourage everyone to buy this for their kids, or even themselves to watch on a rainy afternoon, it's an absolute forgotten classic that is completely underrated.
