Cult artist Shag has created a new 20-color hand-pulled silkscreen print called, “Puf’s Place,” populated with favorite characters like Dr. Blinkey, Ludicrous Lion, Cling and Clang enjoying the beat of The Boids. Shag invited HR Pufnstuf and his creators, Sid and Marty Kroft to an opening event last Saturday evening at The Shag Store. Pufnstuf was the belle of the ball, and everyone was excited to meet Sid Kroft, one of the main people responsible for psychedelicizing our childhoods. There were also costumes on display courtesy of The Comisar Collection. It was so exciting to see the clothing and props worn by Witchypoo and her henchmen Stupid Bat, Orson and Seymour.
