Sid and Marty

ON a chance encounter with Walt Disney in the 1960s, the sibling puppeteers Sid and Marty Krofft received a valuable lesson. “He said, ‘Always put your name above everything that you create,’ ” Sid Krofft recalled in a recent interview, “ ‘because someday it’ll be worth something.’ ”

Heeding that advice, the Krofft brothers created and became indelibly associated with some of the grooviest Saturday morning children’s television programming of the 1970s, including the colorful hits “H. R. Pufnstuf,” “Sigmund and the Sea Monsters,” "The Banana Splits"and “The Bugaloos.” Yet for all the trippy nostalgia the Kroffts have induced, it has been nearly 40 years since one of their shows has been adapted into a film.

Lidsville is the Koo-Koo-Kookiest,
Lidsville is the Ki-Ki-Kickiest,
Lidsville is the Groo-Groo-Grooviest
Lidsville is the living end, friend

If you have a chance to go-go there
You'll be glad you did, 'cause
Everybody who goes to Lidsville really flips his lid

Nigga please! This is heavy duty stoner shit. And I STILL love it with all my heart and soul. If I had the bread, I'd remake this for the big screen. Even if I had to use my Lotto dough.
