You Tube Of The Week: Sid and Marty Krofft

If you ever wonder why Generation X has such a healthy sense of ironic kitsch, it's easily explained by the Sid and Marty Krofft Supershow, a Saturday morning staple of the 1970's. Blending imaginative stories with hilariously low-rent special effects, the Kroffts created some of the greatest bad television in history. Example A: Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, faux-feminist super-heroines who drove around in a flying saucer and shot lasers out of their wristwatches (starring, much to her embarrassment, a young Deidre Hall).

Other marvelous Krofft productions:
H.R. Pufnstuf
Land of the Lost
The Bugaloos
Dr. Shrinker
Sigmund and the Sea Monsters
