Subject: [Puptcrit] Sid Krofft does Carmen Miranda


There is a 3/4 page article about Sid and Marty Krofft entitled "Mr.  
Pufnstuf, Your Table Is Ready" in tomorrow's (Sunday Dec. 3, 2006) "Arts &  Leisure" 
section of the New York Times. Althougth the focus of the aritcle is  about a 
restaurant they are opening called "Eleven" in West Hollywood, there is  a 
short history of the Kroffts' careers. There are also some very nice photos,  
including a very impressive vintage B&W publicity still of Sid Krofft  
manipulating four Carmen Miranda look-alike figures on a tandem marionette  control! 
They happen to look very similar to the figure recently mentioned for  sale on 
e-bay.
