RIP, H.R.

In memory of Lennie Weinrib, the voice of HR Pufnstuf, I give you this brush with celebrity, circa 1972:
That's me in the orange shirt, being squished between my little brother and my friend from school, Elizabeth. That's my sister in the sailor dress on the left, and her friend from church, Kristin, in the super-mini. Her mom was a semi-famous modern dancer named Maida Withers, so that's probably why she got to dress like Twiggy while I look like something out of a Dickens novel.

Sid and Marty Krofft shaped my childhood too. Though I was more of a Bugaloos kid. Land of the Lost, not so much.

Mark! You're the only person I've ever heard of besides myself who remembers the Bugaloos!

I loved HR Puf! You're cute! Dickens novel.....you are cracking me up!

Soccamom, it helps when you have one of your first boyhood crushes on one of the major characters. And of course, a catchy themesong. :)

Those brothers did a large amount of hallucinogenic drugs, man the 70s TV rocked.

HR pufnstuf hes your friend when things get rough, HR pufnstuf cant do a little cause he cant do enough. la la...
Song lyrics

Wow, that'll take you back. I was always convinced that the Kroffts were on acid, though.
