    Guess the Year #36



    Sorry, no clues. Either you know this one or you don't. Good luck.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    1978?....that is one of the characters from one of wierd Sid & Marty Kroft shows - Witchiepoo

    Google is my friendtastic.....though you need to recognize the "look" of a Kroft production though.

    The Krofts had to have had just too much acid in the late 60s.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    According to imdb.com cast listing for H.R. Pufnstuff

    Witchiepoo appeared in 17 episodes between 1969-1970

    great quote that STAN or RJ or anybody else could say:
    With friends like you two, who needs enemies?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    What a bunch of youngsters!!! I can suport late 60's early 70's. 1979???

    This is exactly the sort of crap I watched as a very young child that turned me into such a wierd-o!

    I once came accross a website that explained that a Sid and Marty Croft amusement park opened in Atlanta in the early 70's. I guess they had a lot of problems with hippies and had to close it down.

    I had an HR Puff'n'stuff board game when I was a kid. The Kroftts were some seriously weirded out guys. Anyone remeber Lidsville?

    The guy that played the kid in Puff'n'stuff, Jack Wild, died recently form compliactions of alcoholism, IIRC.

    Okay, I have a confession to make, I don't know the precise year in which that photo was actually taken, I was just wondering if anyone could identify witchiepoo! (and my fellow Cyburbians did not disappoint!)
    JNA was correct when he said the show "HR Pufnstuff" ran from '69 to '72......
    The GTY judging committee is, however, going to award the win to newcomer Captain Worley for being the first to accurately name a year in the correct range . Does this mean you get promoted to Major?

    Huh? I'm a lover, not a fighter. I was amazed that folks thought that crap was being made so late ito the 70's is all.

    Besides Liddsville (which starred Charles Nelson Rieley as some crazy man who drove around in a top-hat) Sid and Marty also did Sigmund the Seamonster. I would not be surprised if they were also involved with the Bananna Split Show as well as that odd Huck Finn/Tom Sawyer show whose name escapes me.

    And let's not forget the Kroft Supershow! Featuring Dr. Shrinker, Wonderbug, and Electrowoman and Dynagirl! Oh, and the 'Bugaloos' was a Kroft production as well (amazing how much cranial space gets devoted to worthless info like this)

    You guys are causing a serious flashback to my misspent childhood. I remeber all the shows mentioned. I'm also afraid to watch them now because they would seem sooooo cheesy. I did buy a Pink Panther dvd from that timeframe. I'm suprised those of us who grew up in that era are even remotely normal.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Schlepp-car was the bomb! Quite possibly also the root of my dune-buggy fascination.

    You'd be amazed at what's playing on YouTube. I mean where did they manage to get the stuff from?

    I was about to marry for a second time when these things you speak of were on the tube, so your references mean nothing to me.

    Anybody remember Beany & Cecil or Clutch Cargo? Heh heh heh.....

    Dishonest John's got Beany!

    "Help, Cecil, help!"

    "I'm comin', Beany Boy!"
    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Robert Frost (1874–1963) (From Harper’s Magazine, December 1920.)
