    This classic series begins with Jimmy, a young English boy, playing near the edge of a bay with his magical talking gold flute, Freddie. While at the edge of the bay, Jimmy climbs aboard a talking boat that beckons to him. As it drifts out to sea, an evil witch named Witchiepoo, seeking Freddie to add to her collection of magical possessions, casts a spell and makes the boat turn into an evil boat which attacks Jimmy (who then jumps overboard to save himself). Swimming to the shore of Living Island, Jimmy is rescued by its mayor, H. R. Pufnstuf, and his Rescue Racer crew (Kling and Klang) before Witchiepoo can get her hands on the boy or the magic flute. They befriend Jimmy, sheltering and protecting him from the kooky old witch. Everything on Living Island is alive. Books have faces, houses sneeze and trees can talk, not to mention the regular citizens who all look like an animal of some sort. Dr Blinky is an Owl, Ludicrous is a Lion and Judy Frog is; well she's a frog and the only character I didn't like as a child. And then there is the evil Witchiepoo. She continually tries to satisfy her obsession for the talking flute with the aid of her goofy henchmen Orson, Seymore, Stupid Bat, and her motorized broomstick, called the Vroom Broom. Each episode involves Jimmy attempting to escape from the island with the help of Pufnstuf and his friends, with flute intact of course. H.R. Pufnstuf was created by Sid and Marty Krofft.moreless

    NBC
    Godzilla: The Original Animated Series is a spin-off series featuring Godzilla as an ally to a team of scientists on a sea vessel, the Calico. The team consists of Captain Carl Majors (voiced by Jeff David), the team leader, Dr. Darien (voiced by Brenda Thompson); a female scientist; Brock (voiced by Hilly Hicks), Dr. Darien's assistant and Carl's first mate; and Pete (voiced Al Eisenman), Dr. Darien's nephew. Another addition to the crew is Godzooky (voiced by Don Messick), Godzilla's nephew, who brings a humorous and lighthearted touch to the show. Though Godzooky is unable to belch fire and is smaller than Godzilla, he is able to fly. Each episode, the team is investigating some strange scientific phenomenon due to some unnatural occurence. Whenever the scientific expedition encounters serious trouble, the team calls in Godzilla (voiced by Ted Cassidy) via a special communicator, or if unavailable, Godzooky's howl. Unlike the original, Godzilla's breath is changed to a fire blast instead a devastating atomic blast. However, he can also shoot laser beams from his eyes. The team uses and briefly explains a scientific principle or instrument each episode, thus having some educational value for the intended audience.moreless
