‘Pufnstuf’ trailer title, 1970

We’ve featured the Pufnstuf television series more than once here at the ‘Disco, but we’ve yet to present the theatrical trailer for the movie version. Let’s remedy that now, seeing as it’s Trailer Tuesday.

"This is the year for Pufnstuf!"

“This is the year for Pufnstuf!”

As in the television series, Jack Wild stars as Jimmy. However, the voice of H.R Pufnstuf is provided by Allan “Sam the Butcher” Melvin, as opposed to Lennie Weinrib. Be sure and keep your eyes peeled for Cass Elliot as Witch Hazel and Martha Raye as Boss Witch. Roll it!

Music For Monday: Player, ‘Baby Come Back’ (1977)

"I was wrong...and I just can't live without you." (Player, 'Baby Come Back,' 1977)

“I was wrong…and I just can’t live without you.” (Player, ‘Baby Come Back,’ 1977)

Released in October of 1977, Player’s “Baby Come Back” rose to the top of the “Hot 100″ charts by January of 1978.

This soon-to-be soft rock classic took over the #1 spot on the US charts from label-mates, the Bee Gees (“How Deep Is Your Love”). It would be Player’s biggest smash. Pop this tune into the 8-Track and drive your van along the beach as you listen.
