Final Results of the Recent Sid and Marty Krofft Poll

In convincing fashion, the show that brought us a dragon mayor with a country twang and a talking flute named Freddy received the most votes in the recent poll asking you to select your favorite Sid and Marty Krofft series. Coming in a distant 2nd was Land of the Lost with 40% of the vote. Sadly, no fans of Magic Mongo, D.C. Follies, or Pryor's Place showed up, because they each received zero votes. I don't vote in the polls myself anymore. Otherwise, I would have showed all three shows some love. Especially Magic Mongo. After all, he's the only friend that we'll ever need.

If you are a fan of the Sid and Marty Krofft shows and don't already own it, you should check out the book Pufnstuf & Other Stuff. Although it's out-of-print, you may be able to find used copies by clicking here.

By the way, have any of you ever tried to describe the plot of one of Sid and Marty Krofft's shows to someone... only to be greeted with a "what the hell have you been smoking?!" look?

Here are the final poll results:

H.R. Pufnstuf- 60%
Land of the Lost- 40%
ElectraWoman & DynaGirl and Sigmund & the Sea Monsters- 35% each
The Bugaloos & Wonderbug- 20% each
Lidsville- 15%
Dr. Shrinker, Far Out Space Nuts, The Lost Saucer, and "Other"- 10% each
D.C. Follies, Magic Mongo, and Pryor's Place- 0% each

Below is the opening credits sequence to the winning show:
