Blues Clues Cookies

Blues Clues cookies

These adorable Blues Clues cookies feature Steve, Blue, Mailbox, Handy Dandy Notebook, and Pail.

These wonderful cookies were made by Jennifer Rose Custom Cookies

The Mailbox cookie reminds me of the song Steve used to sing on every episode: ‘We just got a letter.  We just got a letter.  We just got a letter. Wonder who it’s from?’

This Handy Dandy notebook cookie is terrific. My daughter used to love to watch Blue’s Clues.  Blue and Steve and his Handy Dandy Notebook entertained her with every show.  She even had her own Handy Dandy Notebook that she would store in her own Sidetable drawer.

Furthermore, Blue is on the number one cookies for this 1st birthday party. Other cookies have Blue in various poses.

In addition, a red Pail cookie is in the set.  I wonder where Shovel is? 

Another cookie shows Steve in his red chair with Blue behind him.

These cookies are terrific for any Blues Clues birthday party.

Bewitched Macarons

Bewitched Macarons

These wonderful Bewitched Macarons were made by petite meringue. They were made for Mother’s Day.

 

Bewitched Macarons

These magical macarons feature Samantha Stephens dressed as a witch. She is sitting with her legs underneath her and her arms behind her. This is from the classic animated opening sequence where Samantha is dressed as witch and riding a broom. As she flies through the air, she skywrites the word Bewitched.

Bewitched Macarons

I can’t recall if I watched Bewitched when it first aired, but I know I watched it regularly when it was in syndication. The whole idea of a housewife secretly being a witch and having to deal with her magical mother and other relations was so much fun. 

Elizabeth Montgomery was absolutely wonderful as Samantha. Agnes Moorehead was terrific as Endora. I’m a big fan of classic movies and I remember my surprise seeing Agnes in movies like Citizen Kane. She was such an amazing actress. While he wasn’t in as many episodes (18 episodes total), I also really liked Bernard Fox as the witch doctor Dr. Bombay.

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you probably know that I’m a big fan of The Flintstones. So I had to mention my favorite appearance of Samantha and Darrin outside of Bewitched. In the Flintstones episode, “Samantha”, the Flintstones get new neighbors – Samantha and Darrin Stephens. What really makes this episode fun is that Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York provide the voices for their characters.

H.R. Pufnstuf Cookie

H.R. Pufnstuf Cookie

This marvelous H.R. Pufnstuf Cookie was made by Hey Sweet Cakes. It features H.R. Pufnstuf holding Freddy the flute. If Freddy is around, I’m guessing Witchiepoo is somewhere nearby.

When I was little, Saturday morning was a time for cartoons. Sid and Marty Krofft, the creators of H.R. Pufnstuf, changed that forever. They were puppeteers who were hired by Hanna-Barbera to design the characters and sets for the beloved TV show Banana Splits.

The Banana Splits was a ground breaking kids show that mixed kids, people in costumes, muppets and cartoons. This may not sound innovate these days, but you’ve got to put the show into context. The Banana Splits actually predates the greatest kids show ever made, Sesame Street, by a few months.  I loved The Banana Splits as a kid. I last saw the Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky in the late 60s or early 70s, but I can still sing every word of their catchy theme song, The Tra La La Song ( also known as One Banana, Two Banana).

The success of the Banana Splits enabled Sid and Marty Krofft to create their own company which specialized in classic Saturday morning TV shows that featured kids interacting in a world filled with elaborate costumes, sets, and muppets.

In addition to H.R. Pufnstuf, they worked a bunch of TV series including the amazing Land of the Lost (a weekly serial that mixed dinosaurs and science fiction), Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, Far Out Space Nuts (with Bob Denver (aka Gilligan) – “I said Lunch, not Launch”.), Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and Pryor’s Place. They also worked on popular variety shows like Donny & Marie, The Brady Bunch Hour, and Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters.

H.R. Pufnstuf is special because it was the first series that Sid and Marty Krofft made after they left Hanna-Barbera and unlike The Banana Splits, there was no cartoon segments in the show. The whole series took place in the magical world that Kroffts created. The series had four main characters – Jimmy a little boy, Jimmy’s talking flute – Freddy, H.R. Pufnstuf (who was the Mayor of the island) and Witchiepoo. Many of the plots involved Witchiepoo trying to steal Freddy the flute. When it was first broadcast there was nothing else like it on TV and because of this it is still remembered fondly by many people including me.
