HR Pufnstuf Returns Mutt Stuff

H.R. Pufnstuf Characters to Make TV Return in Nickelodeon Special

H.R. Pufnstuf lives!

The puppet dragon at the center of Sid and Marty Krofft’s late 1960s, live-action children’s series — and some of his friends — will be part ofMutt & Stuff special on Nickelodeon in early 2016, the network announced Tuesday.

Per the official description of the special, which is part of an additional 20-episode order for the kiddie show: “Stuff’s favorite uncle H.R. Pufnstuf decides to visit him at the canine school. When H.R. Pufnstuf arrives with his friends from Living Island, Stuff goes overboard in an attempt to impress him and make sure everything is perfect.”

Those “friends” include Cling and Clang, Freddie the Flute and the Rescue Racer, names familiar to fans of the short-run original series-turned-cult classic.

For those without preschoolers, Mutt & Stuff is set at a special school for canines and stars Calvin Millan and his dad, Dog Whisperer‘s Cesar Millan, who interact with real dogs and puppets.

H.R. Pufnstuf was the first TV show my brother and I created, so it has always held a special place in our hearts,” Marty Krofft said in a statement. “Our fans constantly ask us to bring back Pufnstuf, and we feel the vibrant world of Mutt & Stuff is the perfect setting to revitalize these colorful characters and build excitement for new fans.”
