The new adaptation/reboot/whatever of Sid and Marty Krofft’s extra-cult classic superhero series Electra Woman & Dyna Girl is looking pretty fun, if a bit formulaic: Small-town superheroes come to the big city, get too big for their spandex, break up, only to then make up to save the day. But that doesn’t mean they…
I am rarely in the company of children, which I’ll use as my excuse for not knowing about Nick Jr. show Mutt & Stuff until now. Get this, though: it stars the “nephew” of H.R. Pufnstuf—arguably the biggest star* to emerge from the psychedelic world of Sid and Marty Krofft, kings of 1970s kiddie TV shows.
I don't know much about Sid and Marty Krofft's classic '70s superhero show Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and about all I know about the reboot is that it's a webseries being made by Legendary, starring Grace Helbig and Hanna Hart. Well, that and their new outfits are pretty great.
Sweet Jesus. Amazon, which has clearly gone mad with their new ability to create their own content, has announced they'll be making a brand-new version of Sid and Marty Krofft's bizarre '70s children show Sigmund and the Sea Monsters... with the Kroffts themselves. Why? No man can say.
Back in the day, space opera on television could get pretty crazy. You had heroes who weren't just your standard intrepid space explorers, and stories that were willing to go completely bonkers. But few shows were as genre-breaking and ridiculous as Far Out Space Nuts, from Sid and Marty Krofft.
From 1976 to 1978, the true inspiration for transforming cars ruled the Saturday morning airwaves: Wonderbug, from legendary TV creators Sid and Marty Krofft. Their Krofft Supershow brought you Land of the Lost, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and most importantly, Wonderbug.
Sid and Marty Krofft, the mad geniuses behind triptacular kids' shows like H.R. Pufnstuf and Land of the Lost, are teaming up with Ruby-Spears Productions to animate comic-book legend Jack Kirby's lost 1980s cartoons. Pass the brown acid, brah.
Somehow you always knew television of the 1970s was a Sargasso Sea of crazy, from which no brain emerged unswirled. But nothing was madder than the Krofft Supershow, and their maddest show was Bigfoot and Wildboy.
A new Land Of The Lost trailer debuted in front of Star Trek this weekend, and the Ferrell-does-Krofft spectacle is starting to grow on us. Like a giant mosquito, engorged on our precious bodily fluids.
I rarely find myself getting excited about developments in the world of MySpace, but I'm pretty damn gleeful about the new Sid and Marty Krofft page. The Kroffts had a series of kid shows on network TV, mostly in the 1970s, which featured a lot of scifi themes and geek humor. Krofft shows contained a mix of ongoing…
Will Ferrell will star in a remake of 1970s dinosaurs-and-campy-lizards show Land of the Lost. Marilyn Manson's favorite TV show is about a family that gets caught up in a mega-earthquake during an expedition and falls into a prehistoric little enclave full of ape-kids, dinos and lizard guys called the Sleestaks. How…
