Pufnstuf & Sigmund On Film

Veteran small screen producers Sid and Marty Krofft, whose “Land of the Lost” is being turned into a big-budget Will Ferrell film next Summer, confirm that two other classic 60’s and 70’s kid’s shows they produced are getting the film treatment.

Marty Krofft tells IESB.net that “We are working on it, we are close on Pufnstuf and Sigmund”, referring to “H.R. Pufnstuf” and “Sigmund and the Sea Monsters”.

Pufnstuf revolved around the adventures of Jimmy, a young boy trapped on the magical Living Island, where virtually every object, animal and plant can talk and move. Premiering in 1969, the show quickly became a favourite of kids and stoners alike.

Sigmund followed a friendly sea monster who runs away from his comically dysfunctional undersea family. He is discovered and befriended by brothers Johnny and Scott Stuart, who let Sigmund stay in their hideout.

When asked what studio he was working with, Krofft could only say that he was days from finalizing with a particular studio.
