'H.R. Pufnstuf' and New TV Shows on DVD, Streaming Online for April 12, 2011

Vivendi EntertainmentWhat is it about kids' shows? They're the trippiest things on TV. Remember that ghastly Baby Sun from 'The Teletubbies'? That was weird, but nothing compares to 'H.R. Pufnstuf,' the show that made America wonder, "What they hell were they smoking when they made this!? And where in San Francisco can I get some?"

Sid and Marty Krofft's first live-action, giant puppet series premiered in 1969 and held the nation's children in its colorful, hallucinogenic grip for three seasons as part of NBC's Saturday morning lineup. Now you can relive the long, strange trip with 'H.R. Pufnstuf' The Complete Series and Collector's Edition, released today on DVD.

The three-disc package is pretty much a re-release of the Complete Series box that came out a few years ago, but the newer set features an H.R. Pufnstuf Bobblehead plus a rare episode of the 'Pufnstuf' spinoff 'Horror Hotel.' It's a must-buy for Krofft completists (and perhaps a fun gift for the 'Mr. Show' fan in your life).

Check out the other new releases available on DVD, Blu-ray and Netflix Watch Instantly this week, after the jump.
