1970’s HR Pufnstuf Wax Cup from the World of Sid and Marty Krofft

The World of Sid and Marty Krofft was an amusement park in Atlanta, Georgia that was based on the various TV shows produced by Sid and Marty Krofft. It was notable for being the world’s first entirely indoor amusement park. Sometimes it is the little things that you handle in your day to day visits to these places that really sum up what it is all about. I wish I had kept the cups from all my childhood visits to various places I enjoyed visiting. Since I didn’t I am glad their are people like Gregg Koenig who photographs and post these wonderful mementos online.

  1. That’s very cool. My mother took me there right after it opened, and even though I was only six, I still have vague memories of what it was like. It was a surreal place, I will say that. I can’t believe that guy still has a disposable cup from so long ago.

    Cool looking cup. Sid and Marty Krofft’s shows are some of the first shows I remember watching. I’m glad someone went through the trouble of saving it. I imagine it is harder to keep it looking nice then a glass or plastic cup

    There are some decent photos on Flickr of the park that lasted only 4 months. It’s now the CNN headquarters.

    Man, I wish I could have visited it – it looks pretty groovy.

    Wonderful image set.
    H.R. Pufnstuf toys and tie-ins were marvelously omnipresent while I was groovin’ to the Krofft’s line of TV shows.
    Felt great to see this again.

    I also gotta add how retro-ishly stimulating it was to see those 70s embossed magnets on page 2 (which were *everywhere*).
    Dig It!

  5. hi folks! I’m doing a talk on the Krofft Theme Park in two weeks at DRAGON CON in Atlanta.

    If any of you have scanned images of trips to the park or images of memorabilia and are willing to let me share them with a very enthusiastic audience, please contact me! My email is spcglider(at)aol(dot)com

    Thanks!! :)
