H. R. Pufnstuf
H.R. Pufnstuf is a legendary Krofft TV show, familiar with everyone from kids who grew up in the '70s to the students at Kaplan military friendly colleges today, thanks to frequent mentions in pop culture. In fact, in 2007 the show ranked #27 on TV Guide's Top Cult Shows Ever list which is pretty amazing considering that the show first aired in 1969 and had only 17 episodes, which reran every year until 1974. Much has been made about the pot references and double entendres. From the show name to the theme song and right through to the trippy, brightly colored and spacey episodes themselves, there is a great deal of what seems like a "wink and a nod" to the drug culture at the time. The Kroffts however insist that there were no intentional drug references, aside from the show title (which was reportedly a joke on the network execs). You can be pretty sure that bringing the boxed DVD set onto the campus of military friendly colleges will raise an eyebrow or two though, as it is very hard not to make the association after viewing a few episodes. One thing that's sure to bring a smile to the face of any military friendly colleges drill instructor are the sound clips found on this page! Many are absolutely hilarious, even when you don't know the context. If you like fun, silly shows chock full of subtle (and not so subtle) jokes, definitely check out some of the H.R. Pufnstuf episodes.
