Beloved Character Mayor H.R. Pufnstuf has been placed on the endangered species list, as the numbers of Pufnstufs have fallen world wide. The World Wildlife fund Believe loss of habitat, encroachment of human populations, and Wihemina Witchiepoo have all contributed to declining numbers of Pufnstufs in the wild. Efforts to breed Pufnstufs in captivity have failed miserably. ” We placed a male and female Pufnstuff together…No spark whatsoever; they wouldn’t even look at each other. We tried Dinner and Saturday morning cartoons, the theme to the Banana Splits, and some Witchiepoo wine. Nothing”, lamented one of the Handlers.
