Oh my gosh I remember getting up super early on Saturday to watch Sid & Marty Krofft‘s crazy shows! My favorite was Land of the Lost (original series not silly remake) and I LOVED that show. I used to get scared of the ‘mean’ dynasaur and remember my parent’s telling me to turn of the TV and go outside and play. But who wants to go outside when so much fun was on the boobtube??? Plus this was before the VCR, DVR and of course internet instant replay! Opps gave my age away! I want to interview them soo bad and will try to get into the panel!! If I do it will definitely go up on cherrylosangeles @youtube!
