Your Monday Morning Mental Sorbet: The Krofft Musical

Witchiepoo Tribute

Each week, we know there’s a very good chance you’re having to face down at least five days of madness. And not even the good kind of madness, either. We’re talking the mind numbing insanity that comes with the day job. It’s okay–we’ve been there. And we find that starting things off with a good dose of WTF-ness can make all the difference. Here’s your recommended dosage for this week:

Since making musicals that range from bland to downright gag-ridden is the new frontier (case in point: the upcoming Spider-Man musical…which I won’t link up here, it’s that heinous…Google the video premiere of bits of it at your peril) I came across this TV Land musical tribute to Sid & Marty Krofft. Now…there’s nothing wrong with the Kroffts–in fact, there’s a whole lot right with them. They brought hallucinogenic kids shows to all of us. But what’s fascinating is how this clip doesn’t walk the line between actually somewhat endearing tribute and horrible stage production…it teeters and falls into one, then clambers up and makes its way up only to crash off the other side. And then repeats the process.

Also weird? The Clint Black portion is actually my favorite. Go figure.
