Amazon is bringing again one of many Nineteen Seventies’ weirder child’s exhibits
Amazon Studios is about to get bizarre: The outfit introduced that it is reviving the weird ’70s youngsters’s present, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters with its unique creators Marty and Sid Krofft on the helm. Not acquainted with these names? Nicely, you’ve got virtually assuredly seen a number of the Krofft’s work — they’re the duo liable for H.R. Pufnstuf and Land of the Misplaced amongst many others. Most Engadget readers have heard of the latter, proper? For additional catch-up, take a look at the episode of Sigmund up above. It is an ideal strategy to get launched (or reminded) of simply how weird youngsters’s TV programming was again within the days of disco. I imply, an anthropomorphic ball of seaweed turns into smitten with a canine inside the clip’s first 5 minutes. Critically.
Anyhow, there aren’t some other particulars surrounding the brand new Sigmund present, however let’s hope that, true to its roots, there’s an emphasis on puppetry and it does not go the route of CGI for the titular sea monsters. Some may say this can be a nostalgia play by Jeff Bezos’ video wing, they usually’d be fairly on the nostril. However, if Amazon can deliver again a basic and do it justice, it is kinda onerous to get mad. In any case, it isn’t like the corporate does not have already got a number of child’s packages within the works from well-known puppet homes of yore.
