For fans of the old Sid & Marty Krofft TV show H.R. Pufnstuf this is a dark day. Actor Jack Wild who portrayed Jimmy on the show has died. He was 53.

His final voyage

Memories: - When I was a little kid there was 1-2-3 Contact, Electric Company, School House Rock, Sesame Street, Zoom, Land of the Lost, Spider Man and his Amazing Friends and of course H.R. PufnStuf. Though I was too young to catch Puf in it's first run I loved it when it was re-run later. Jack Wild was perfectly cast as Jimmy and created a perfectly sympathetic character in a topsy turvy land of googly-eyed odd balls that made my weekend morning tv watching just a little less....sober.

Although he didn't do much after Puf I'm still going to miss this guy. He opitomized the live-action kid show genre. He deserved a better career, but people will never forget the far out adventures of Jimmy and his magic talking golden flute.
