Great 1970's children's stuff from Krofft
8 February 2004 | by (Southern CA) – See all my reviews

My husband says that the first tv star he fell in love with growing up in the 1970's was the girl bugaloo (Caroline Ellis)...to him, she's a hottie. 2nd girl was the girl was Kim Richards ('Escape from Witch Mountain'). These Krofft shows don't hold up too much as an adult, but they can be cherished for the 1970's children's programming. Check out this and other Krofft stuff, there's no way they can program this stuff again.
