I hear that if your (incredibly backward) cable or sattelite provider doesn't offer Logo, you can catch full episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race at! The world just became a more FABULOUS place!

Apparently once again Miss Ginger lost at least one of you with her reference to 70's kids TV, when she delcared that Victoria "Pork Chop" Parker looked just like HR Puffnstuff.
For any of you GingerSnaps who may have been raised by tree-hugging hippies who didn't believe in television :

This classic series begins with Jimmy, a young English boy, playing near the edge of a river with his magical talking gold flute, Freddie. While at the edge of the river Jimmy climbs aboard a 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 Ranger crew (Kling and Klang) before Witchiepoo can get her hands on the boy or the magic flute. They befriend the Jimmy sheltering and protecting him from the kooky old witch.Everything on Living Island is alive.

H.R. Pufnstuf
Who's your friend
when things get rough?
H.R. Pufnstuf

Once upon a summertime
Just a dream from yesterday
A boy and his magic golden flute
Heard a boat from off the bay
"Come and play with me Jimmy
Come and play with me
And I will take you on a trip
Far across the sea"...

I remember HR Pufnstuf, but just barely. I was more the Banana Splits era. I think by the time HR Pufnstuf came on, I was into the Monkees. I loved Davy, but I also loved Peter! [snicker]

Hugs, Beth
