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

Coral Kerr, well known character designer, is the creator of many characters for Sid Krofft and Marty Krofft's films and television series and for numerous other live action and animation productions since 1966. When she created the idea for what became "Freddie the flute", having been asked to come up with a sort of conscience for "Jimmy", which the character flute for the "H.R. Pufnstuf" series was to be, she found out 35 years later that Sid (and the two male members of what made up the art department) did not want to use the character for fear it would appear too phallic for a television show.

The Best t.v. Ever, Ever, Ever!
28 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved the show when I was extremely young. Luckily, I have a very good memory. Throughout my life I would talk about HR Puf N' Stuff. Sometimes people knew it and of course younger people did not. I had tried for years to get copies, which proved extremely difficult. Actually impossible. I am pleased to say, at the tender age of 41, I have managed to get the whole series. I watch it whenever I can. I am amazed at how much I remember. And the bits I don't are a joy. It is great fun, colourful, hilarious and just the best thing. I am looking forward to introducing it to my niece and nephew and my twins which will be born this summer. Thank you Jack Wild, HR, Billie Hayes and the whole crew. You are fantastic. Totally fantastic.

P.S. One of my favourite lines is when Freddie is swallowed by the 'Horse With The Golden Throat'. Jimmie asks if he's OK. He replies 'Get me out of here. I'm surrounded by carrots'. Mark. XX.
