Late Night Blogging: The Worlds of Sid and Marty Krofft


  1. Anonymous5:20 PM

    John these videos bring back wonderful memories of '70s Saturday mornings from my boyhood.


  2. I've got a soft spot in my heart for Land of the Lost and to a lesser degree, HR Pufnstuff, Sigmund, and Lost Saucer. Now, I find many of the later Krofft shows are nearly unwatchable but the earlier ones still have a sense of whimsy and charm to them.

    I'm also intrigued by the talent that passed through the Krofft studios in the 1970's. Specifically, Gene Warren's FX company provided much of the stop motion animation for Land of the Lost, as well as FX for Man From Atlantis and other shows, Herman Zimmerman who was the set designer for many early Krofft shows (and later to do the same for Star Trek the Next Generation), and Mike Minor who helped design and create so many miniatures for the Kroffts and likewise went onto designing the Trek Phase II series as well as the earlier Trek films.

    Amazing talents that were given their first big breaks in the business!
