Ahh Yes...Those Were The Days!
31 July 2007 | by (atlanta,ga) – See all my reviews

My fascination with Sid And Marty Krofft go back to when I was just 3 years old(1976).I was born and raised in Atlanta during the time that Sid and Marty took up space inside the now defunct Omni center(Now CNN Center).Their theme attraction was"The World Of Sid And Marty Krofft".During part of the opening sequence you can see the city where I grew up and became a man during its funkiest period in time.The highway that Captain Kool and The Kongs are leading the kids down is the off/on ramp from I-78/85 that leads to the Presidential Parkway(Jimmy Carter).It was probably chosen since it is one of the best spots to see the main skyscrapers.The last part shows the band performing inside the Omni on the main floor level.It was a fun time to grow up and it was during a time when people(meaning parents) where not overly sensitive.Kids were allowed to think for themselves vs being spoon fed what they should or should not like.Also TV was way less retarded.True,The glam rock look dates this program quite a bit but it was relevant during the times.The Vietnam war was one year over,Gerald Ford was president(defeated by Jimmy Carter in 77),kid cereal could rot your teeth if not carefull and cars were large flotation devices on for wheels(my parents had a 66 ford galaxie and 74 pontiac catalina.Given a chance ,I would like to see that time period again if just to remember more of what I saw at 3 years old.
