* TheCastShowoff: Jack Wild, having played the Artful Dodger in ''Theatre/{{Oliver}}'', was a good singer and dancer, and so nearly every episode had Jimmy singing a song and/or doing some kind of casual dance. The other characters would sometimes join in for a sung line or two, or as the chorus, but Jimmy got more solo songs than everyone else on the show put together.
** In fact, ''HR. Pufnstuf'' was actually created as a vehicle for Jack Wild due to his rapid ascension to TeenIdol status in the US (he'd already been fairly well-known for a few years in his native England). This explains why so many of the songs centre around Jimmy.

** The 2015 Krofft series ''Mutt & Stuff'' became a surprise hit, leading to the commissioning of a Mutt & Stuff/Pufnstuf special, slated for early 2016. The brothers promise (or threaten) that the Living Island characters will look exactly like they did in 1969.

First in a long line of surreal and sometimes disturbing offerings from SidAndMartyKrofftProductions. The show premiered in 1969 and was rerun until 1971. To get an idea as to what you're in for, we turn to VH-1's "I Love the '70s" show, and their description of ''H.R. Pufnstuf'':

* {{Retcon}} / AlternateContinuity: Watch series opener "The Magic Path". Now watch TheMovie, which was produced shortly afterwards. Apart from the events which occurred in the TV show's ExpositoryThemeTune, there is little in common in how Jimmy's first experiences on Living Island are portrayed.

Added DiffLines:

* PaperThinDisguise: Both the good and bad guys were fond of using these to their advantage. One particular example stands out: in "Show Biz Witch," Witchie, Orson, and Seymour don orange bedsheets covered with oranges, with Witchiepoo also wearing a pair of large orange sunglasses, and pass themselves off as..."The Three Oranges." Even better is that in "The Birthday Party"--not five episodes later--they pull the ''exact same trick'', only they use yellow sheets instead of orange and call themselves "The Three Lemons."

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Hippie trees, psychedelic patterns and the ever-fashionable yellow and brown clothing combination abound. Let's just say this show probably wouldn't work as a {{revival}} in the 21st century, unless it was actually set circa 1970.
