The World of Sid & Marty Krofft at the Hollywood Bowl is a live show at the Hollywood Bowl on July 29, 1973 that was filmed and aired as a television special, produced by Sid and Marty Krofft. It originally aired in syndication on Thanksgiving weekend, November 24, 1973. Although shot at the Hollywood Bowl in front of a live audience, the special also utilized a laugh track, like other Krofft shows, for sweetening.

Synopsis[edit]

The special consists of a series of performances and skits based around the shows of Sid and Marty Krofft:

Alternate versions[edit]

Originally the special was broadcast in an hour-long timeslot with a total running time of 50 minutes (sans commercials). In 1995, Nick at Nite first aired the special in a half-hour timeslot during their "Pufapalooza" marathon. This version was missing the opening sequence (Billy Barty and other little people prepared the stage) and all of the scenes with Witchiepoo and Hoodoo. The special later aired frequently in an hour-long timeslot on TV Land with some minor trims to compensate for increased commercial time.

The uncut version of the special was released on VHS by Rhino Home Video in 1997 under the title H.R. Pufnstuf Live at the Hollywood Bowl.
