They're in the air and everywhere!!
4 April 2001 | by (st. pete, fl usa) – See all my reviews

I loved this live action kids show from the early '70's. In the vein of H R Puffnstuff and Lidsville. It stars a group of young people who are silly bugs, flying around singing silly songs and have silly little adventures. They are chased by the campy and over madeup Martha Raye who lives in a big jukebox.

I fear that the kids of today will never get the chance to view this wonder of wonders, but if you get the chance, see it. If only to see what Children's TV was like back then.....
