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>

A camp romp for children and adults alike
17 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Jimmy has a talking flute. Witchiepoo wants the talking flute. There is the underlying premise for a camp romp for children and adults alike.

Witchiepoo steals the show as she seeks to overcome all sorts of obstacles including her bumbling sidekicks to steal the talking flute. All sorts of supporting characters abound in this costume comedy - Kling and Klang (the policemen); HR Pufnstuf (the Mayor); the North and South Winds; and many more.

It was a wonderful adventure and lots of fun when growing up; and still is. A timeless classic that defies the challenges of the hi-tech era. Definitely worth a look!
