Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Like the Krofft brothers' other shows, this show is amateurly acted and cheaply produced, with extremely unconvincing rubber costumes that may be a deal-breaker for modern kids. On the other hand, they may enjoy spotting such bloopers as stuck eyeballs and actor clothing sticking out from beneath the awful costumes.

Plotlines are classic kid-show stuff, silly and predictable, with a notable amount of scariness and tension as Sigmund is repeatedly stalked, chased, and captured. But the cheerful attitude of the kids and the light-hearted adventures might fascinate kids who have never seen anything like it. Nostalgic parents might want to watch, too, and sing along to the corny theme song, "Friends."
