The Bugaloos are a rock-n-roll band with bug wings who live in a magical forest. Benita Bizarre wants to put an end to their goody-goody behavior, and tries to capture and/or destroy them with the help of her henchthings Woofer and Tweeter. Written by
This is probably one of my favorite Krofft shows besides Land of the Lost, Hr Pufnstuf and Lidsville.
The Bugaloos is about four British fairies who look like insects, Joy played by Caroline Ellis is a beautiful butterfly, I.Q. played by John Mcindoe a grasshopper, Courage played by John Philpott a ladybug and Harmony played by Wayne Laryea. They live in this forest called Tranquility with a firefly played by the late Billy Barty and voiced by the late Walker Edmiston. Their enemy is a rock witch named Benita Bizarre played by the late Martha Raye, a sneaky devil who was probably borrowed from Cruella De Vil because of her obsession with feathers. There were plenty of other characters like Peter Platter and a stupid messaging bird
After 2 seasons one in reruns, the actors who played the Bugaloos returned to England with hopes of coming back to film a movie with Colombia Pictures. Sadly it didn't happen the the cast moved on with their lives
But do you know today, there is a HUGE fan base for this show. There are at least three Bugaloos fan sites Bill Ung's popular Tranquility Forest. Really recommended by the way along with a Facebook page. The cast still appreciate folks memories of the show and occasionally pop on the website
Now I can go on and on about how great this show is, but I won't, I was born in the early 90's but I grew up watching The Bugaloos and other Krofft shows. I will say I am impressed with the music they do have lovely voices, Sparky was the character i related the most. I had a crush on the guys and Joy was the big sister every kid wanted.
My father watched this show and I am proud to say hopefully someday my own children will watch the show
