Psychedelic Saturday Mornings Come To Life At La La Land Gallery

If the titles H.R. Pufnstuf, Lidsville, Sigmund The Sea Monster, Banana Splitz and The Bugaloos make you feel nostaglic, you grew up with Sid & Marty Krofft’s imaginative – if not drug-induced- characters who graced your television set with their wacky antics every Saturday morning.

Krofft Super Art Show

La La Land Gallery curator Kii Arens certainly remembers them and felt it was time to pay tribute to many of my generations’ Saturday morning staples with The Krofft Super Art Show.

An exhibit of artworks inspired by the 1970s children’s television shows is taking place from August 26 through September 25th in Hollywood, CA. Below are several pieces from the show.

Krista Perry, Pufnstuf Parade, 9×12, Gouache On Wood Panel
Matthew Bone, Untitled , 24×36, oil on panel
Jesse Riggle, Sigmund, 8×8, Acrylic On Canvas
Oliver Hiber, Ah Sid And Marty Wanna, 8×10, ink and Pencil on Paper

Sid & Marty Krofft were the creative imprinting for a whole generation. The colors and the concepts were one of a kind. The amazing stuff they did you couldn’t get away with today. It was like Willy Wonka every Saturday morning. Sid’s career stemming back to The Barnum and Bailey Circus till now is such an amazing untold story that I felt it was time to pay tribute. – Kii Arens
