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

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.

This is a weird, weird, weird show. My friend Tom and I are afraid to watch it because it feels like you are on drugs. Strange muppets, subliminal messages, hypnotic imagery, funky colors are all on parade in this 1969 TV Series about... you know, I have no clue what was going on! I don't know if this would be considered a recommendation, but I must admit, you should see this show once to see how "trippy" it really is.
