Storyline

A young boy named Jimmy has in his possession a magic flute named Freddie that can talk and play tunes on its own. One day he gets on a magic talking boat that promises to take him on an adventure. The boat happens to belong to a wicked witch named Witchiepoo, who uses the boat to kidnap Jimmy and take him to her home base on Living Island, where she hopes to steal Freddie for her own selfish needs. Fortunately Jimmy is rescued by the island's mayor, a six foot dragon named H.R. Pufnstuf. After Jimmy is rescued by Pufnstuf and his two deputies, Kling and Klang, his adventures begin as well as his attempts to get back home. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Trivia

Only two actresses auditioned to play Witchiepoo. The first was then unknown Penny Marshall, but it was felt that she wasn't right for the part. Stage veteran Billie Hayes came in next, set into a maniacal cackle and hopped up on a desk. She was given the part on the spot. See more »

this was a Saturday morning favorite
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

as children we grew up on this program. the music and themes were great but hey what did we know we were children. i can still sing the h r puffenstuff song 35 years later. all i remember is that we waited every for every Saturday morning to see this program. i never understood the drug reference til i got a lot older.

The show followed a little boy with a magic flute that could talk. witchiepoo was always trying to trap the little boy and steal his flute and she actually did capture him a couple of times but hr puffenstuf saved the day. h r puffenstuff looked like mayor mc cheese and looked like something out of the muppets rather then Saturday morning animation. this guy could have easily done a cameo on the muppets. The show was cheesy however most of the shows for that time period were pretty cheesy but it was junk food for the brain. we simply have to say thanks to Sid and Marty kroft for a great show because it did keep us occupied on those cold Saturday mornings
