“I never have lived – so I never grow old!” (‘H.R. Pufnstuf,’ ‘Mechanical Boy,’ 1969)
I double-dog dare you to watch the H.R. Pufnstuf clip below and refrain from singing along. You’ll find it very difficult not to join in as Jimmy (Jack Wild) belts out this brief and wonderful tune.
H.R. Pufnstuf‘s fourth episode, featuring the song in question, originally aired in September of 1969, but kids grew up watching and singing along throughout the 1970s. Go, Artful Dodger, go!
