So the H.R. Pufnstuf kid died, after a short and hard life, and it’s a sad story, and I’m looking at the pictures on the wire, like this one:

And all I can think of is, how did “Pufnstuf” get the reputation as “psychedelic?” “Lame” would be a better word. It looks like a junior high school production of “Alice in Wonderland.” Or a Third World McDonaldland. On the big version of the picture you can even see the tailor’s chalk marks on the flappy things on the dragon costume.
