Often referred to as the King of Saturday Mornings, he dominated children’s television with programs including H.R. Pufnstuf, Lidsville, Sigmund & The Sea Monsters, Land of the Lost, and Mutt & Stuff - started in 1969 and running through 2015 – plus primetime variety shows, starting with Donny & Marie, which rocketed to #1 on Friday-nights on ABC, followed by D.C. Follies, The Brady Bunch Hour, and Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters. Multiple generations of fans have grown up with the popular shows of Sid & Marty Krofft. They made memories for millions to enjoy and will continue to do so through their recently announced "World Of Sid & Marty Krofft Channel" global streaming deal with Cineverse.

ABOUT MARTY KROFFT - Marty Krofft has been producing quality family entertainment for more than 50 years. Sid & Marty Pictures first became a household name in the 70s with quite a list of TV Shows. “H.R. Pufnstuf”, “The Bugaloos,” “Lidsville”, “Land Of The Lost”, “Sigmund & the Sea Monsters,” “Pryor’s Place” (starring Richard Pryor), “Far Out Space Nuts,” “Lost Saucer,” “The Krofft Supershow,” “Wonderbug and Bigfoot,” “Electra Woman & Dyna Girl,” and “Bigfoot & Wildboy.” For primetime, Krofft created the satirical and funny “D.C. Follies” series, produced and created the “Donny & Marie Show” “The Brady Hour,” and “Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters”, all of which were audience favorites and remained in the top 10. Marty opened the World of Sid & Marty Krofft amusement park in downtown Atlanta in 1976, now the former CNN headquarters. He was the creative director for Six Flags and produced live shows in parks across America before they embarked on their television career. Marty had been working puppets off and on with his brother for years while gaining experience in the business of shows and creating a company of their own. His vision was to take puppets out of the realm of strictly children’s entertainment and build a slightly risqué adult-oriented puppet show called “Les Poupees De Paris”, loosely based on the cabarets of Paris. It was a success! The show traveled throughout the United States — from the Seattle World’s Fair to New York Worlds Fair playing to millions of people across the country. Having already created the “Banana Splits” for Hanna Barbara in 1969, Marty was approached by NBC to create his own Krofft Saturday Morning Children’s Series. They picked HR Pufnstuf, by far the fans’ favorite character from their live shows. Its success spawned a feature film produced with Universal Pictures as a partner and distributor. In the late 80s, the Kroffts created and produced D.C. Follies, featuring a cast of life-size puppets ranging from ‘Richard Nixon’ to ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger’, with outrageous political and current events satire. D.C. Follies ran for two seasons, prematurely ending with a writer’s strike. Krofft produced a series of live shows entitled “Comedy Kings” for the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. In 2018, Marty received the Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and in 2020, he received his star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Now, having celebrated their "Golden Anniversary", along with H.R. Pufnstuf, they are still going strong.

Marty Krofft recently returned to Atlanta to receive The Julie Award at Dragon Con. Considered the highest honor from Dragon Con, the annual Julie Award was established in 1998 in honor of Julius “Julie” Schwartz and is given by a panel of industry professionals in honor of “universal achievement spanning multiple genres.”
