As we reported, on June 1 Rhino Home Video released THE WORLD OF SID &
MARTY KROFFT, a three-volume set that included one episode from every
Krofft Saturday morning show. Now on July 20 the kooky shows of Sid & Marty
Krofft will once again find their way into American living rooms with the
home video release of individual episodes of H.R. PUFNSTUF, SIGMUND & THE
SEA MONSTERS, LAND OF THE LOST, BUGALOOS, LIDSVILLE, and FAR OUT SPACE
NUTS. While these shows are mostly live-action (the primary exception is

many fans of cartoons. Each video is packaged with a collectable iron-on
