Rhino Update: 10/29/1999
Hi folks, we just heard that Rhino will be releasing another set of Krofft tapes
in January 2000, including a second Bugaloos volume; and that all the new tapes
will come with a special collectible beanie toy. :-)
We're told that the Bugaloos tape will feature the following episodes:
In addition, we have some artwork and beanie pics from the other Krofft tapes:
That's all I know for now ... however, if they keep this up, that means the next
video should contain "Help Wanted - Firefly" (Ep #10), which has "Castles in the Air"
on it. :-)
Rhino Update: 03/26/2000
Although no new Bugaloos tapes have been scheduled for release, other Krofft shows have
made their way to new mediums. Sigmund & the Sea Monsters have been released
on DVD, with their first volume containing four episodes:
1. Happy Birthdaze
In addition to the four episodes, the disc also includes "interviews", "rare photos" and a
"slide show" (at least, according to the description given by
2. The Nasty Nephew
3. Monster Rock Festival
4. Ghoul School Days
Next, we are told that H.R. Pufnstuf will be released on DVD in April as a boxed set
containing All 17 Episodes!!
That said, I was unable to locate any such information about this release on the
Rhino website ... so
maybe it really is just a rumor.
