Another Acid Trip From the Kroffts, 8 April 2003
Author: Brian Washington (Sargebri@att.net) from Los Angeles, California

This follow-up to H.R. Pufnstuf, is about four humanoid insects and their battles with a wigged out witch and wannabe singing star named Benita Bizarre. This show was even more wild than Pufnstuf due to the fact that Ms. Bizarre lived in a jukebox, had a nazi-like rat for a chauffer and two of her henchmen were a pair of robots named Woofer and Tweeter (just like speakers). The Bugaloos lived in a forest with their firefly buddy Sparky and their neighbors were a bunch of talking grapes. This show was even more of an LSD trip than Pufnstuff but not as trippy as Lidsville. The Kroffts said they never did drugs, but with shows like this, you gotta wonder.
