Pufnstuff-1970, Directed by Hollingsworth Morse, starring Billie Hayes, Jack Wild, Billy Barty, and Mama Cass.
He says- OK theatrical feature based on Sid and Marty Krofft's TV series H.R. Pufnstuff, with Wild as young boy brought by a magic flute to Oz-like kingdom ruled by bumbling witches. Fine for kids; Hayes is fun as Witchiepoo. 2 and a half stars.
I say- I watched this when I was a kid and enjoyed it; watched it now and realized how insane/drug laden this movie really is. Pufnstuff costume could use a good wash, it looks like a dirty theme park costume. Enjoyable as a kids film, but not much for adults. One and a half stars.
