a krofft acid trip
17 February 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

i did like the theme song when i was little. but when i look back .its total infantile corniness,, the stars were british teens singing forgettable songs and an overblown martha raye in bad makeup . however i did laugh at benita bizarre ,,the name just made me laugh as a small kid .. when you look back though ,the krofft shows as a whole were really awful. they were nothing more than your average grade school play including the really awful set designs. most of these shows could have been written by children and acted out in the school auditorium.

i grew up with these shows though and i myself enjoyed them but whats past is past ,, a piece of my childhood i will never forget but would not want to go back to.
