I recently debuted H.R. Pufnstuf for my kids, and it was such a success that I went back searching for more information on my other two favorite Krofft shows, Lidsville and Far Out Space Nuts. When the current dvd set for Pufnstuf was released, Vivendi put out a press release that said this:
H. R. PUFNSTUF: THE COMPLETE SERIES is the latest release to stem from the partnership the Krofft brothers and Vivendi Entertainment formed last year. The ongoing collaboration promises to produce a series of DVD sets and compilations that will spotlight the sibling puppeteer's iconic catalog of children's television shows.
One of those programs, Lidsville, is heading to the big screen courtesy of DreamWorks Animation. The Krofft brothers will serve as executive producers for the project, which marks the first animated feature film adaptation of their work.

The complete series of Lidsville was released by Rhino, and is hard to find at a reasonable price. Whatever plans Vivendi had to release that series apparently died when the Lidsville feature was shelved. As for Far Out Space Nuts, one episode of that show had appeared on the Rhino compilation of Kroft shows, but it did not appear on a similar compilation put out by Vivendi (it was not mentioned in the Pufnstuf press release either).
Does anyone know what's going on with the Krofft library, particularly Far Out Space Nuts? Thanks
