Was talking with a friend the other day, and – mainly, I suspect, because she’s substantially younger than me – she’d never heard of H.R. Pufnstuf.

Never even heard of it. [sigh]

If you’ve never heard of it either, watch the following. Remember: this is what my generation grew up watching on television. And think how our delicate brains might have been affected…

Of course, that wasn’t the only thing we grew up watching.

No, we had the cultural milestone that was Mary, Mungo and Midge:

And Follyfoot:

And that’s leaving aside Banana Splits, King Arthur and the Square Knights of The Round Table and Hector’s House.

It does explain a lot, be fair…
