We gave it a B+

Oh, what a mad, mad world it is! The 13-episode World of Sid & Marty Krofft collection celebrates the cheap-looking, bizarre, and totally unforgettable genre of programming called Krofft. Soak up kiddie TV nostalgia with the acid trip that is H.R. Pufnstuf (Freddie the Flute is turned into a silent mushroom), the dark and scary Land of the Lost (Will and Holly sneak into the Pylon), and a values-filled episode of Pryor’s Place (Richard Pryor channels Captain Kangaroo). Funny how none of these oddities seemed weird when we were kids. But watching the Kroffts’ kreations as an adult is like smoking some wacky tabacky without even lighting up. B+
