The seventeen episodes were originally broadcast from September 6, 1969, to December 27, 1969. The broadcasts were successful enough that NBC kept it on the Saturday morning schedule until August 1972. The show was shot in Paramount Studios and its opening was shot in Big Bear Lake, California.

  • H.R. Pufnstuf fue un programa infantil producido por Sid y Marty Krofft en los Estados Unidos. El show constó de diecisiete episodios, emitidos desde el 6 de septiembre de 1969 hasta el 4 de septiembre de 1971, pero era tan exitosa que la NBC la mantenía en el horario matutino del sábado para las tres temporadas completas. La cadena ABC transmitió la repetición de la serie por más de dos temporadas desde el 16 de septiembre de 1972 hasta el 1 de septiembre de 1974. H.R. Pufnstuf introdujo el escenario del argumento más utilizado por los Kroffts, girando alrededor de un muchacho llamado Jimmy (interpretado por ), que incidentalmente se encuentra con la Isla Viva, un lugar mágico donde todo estaba vivo. El alcalde de Isla Viva era un amigable dragón llamado H.R. Pufnstuf, cuya voz fue prestada por la del escritor del programa, . Jimmy había sido atraído con engaños a la isla con su amigo, una flauta parlante llamada Freddie, por un mágico barco que le ofreció tener aventuras a través del mar. El barco era en realidad poseído y controlado por su némesis, una traviesa bruja llamada , interpretada por , que paseaba en una escoba con volante llamada Vroom Broom. Jimmy estaba con Pufnstuf, quien pudo protegerlo dentro de la cueva donde vivía, pues era un lugar inmune a la magia. Aparte de Witchiepoo, el resto de los personajes en Isla Viva estaban realizados generalmente, a través de abultados disfraces o títeres. Puesto que todo en Isla Viva tenía vida—casas, castillos, barcos, relojes abuelos, velas, libros, árboles, hongos—cualquier parte del escenario de Isla Viva podía convertirse en un personaje, generalmente utilizando la voz en una parodia de un famoso actor de cine, tal como Mae West, Edward G. Robinson o más notablemente John Wayne como "The West Wind" (El Viento del Oeste). La popularidad del show a finales de los años 60s y principios de los años 70s provocó el estreno de una película basada en el programa, llamada , en 1970. La película contó con apariciones de actores invitados como Mama Cass Elliot y Martha Raye. El programa y la película fueron notables por los colores brillantes, montajes rápidos, rodaje acelerado, segmentos musicales y bromas en torno a la cultura pop, lo que atraía a los adultos jóvenes casi tanto como a los niños. La serie completa fue estrenada en DVD de estuche decorado en Estados Unidos en febrero de 2004. La película también se encuentra disponible en VHS, producción recientemente salida a la venta. (es)

  • We've heard that for 35 years. We did not intentionally do anything related to drugs in the story. People thought we were on drugs. You can't do good television while on drugs. People never believe you when you say that, but you can't. The shows were very bright and spacey looking. They may have lent themselves to that culture at the time, but we didn't ascribe that meaning to them, and I can't speak to what adults were doing when they were watching the shows. We just set out to make a quality children's program. (en)
