From H.R. Pufnstuf to The Donnie and Marie Show to Pryor’s Place, many of the most colorful and memorable series of the 1970s and 1980s sprang from the imaginations of Sid and Marty Krofft. Their groundbreaking, live-action kids fantasy shows were mainstays of the Saturday morning airwaves, which had previously been the exclusive domain of cartoons.
Now the iconic television producers are working with Amazon Studios to develop a reimagined pilot of classic ‘70s children live action series Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.
“Sid and Marty are geniuses and we are honored to be working with them to bring to the world a return of what we believe is TV’s most fabulous and funniest sea creature ever,” said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios, in an announcement about the development deal with the Kroffts.
