Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the psychedelic and sometimes creepy quality of this show is tempered by an earnest laugh-track. Though Witchiepoo is a villain, she is more clownish than scary. There are, however, some monster puppets that might frighten the youngest viewers. Expect young viewers to imitate some of the witch's name-calling and bullying language ("stupid," "idiot," "shut up").

Sexual Content

Characters kiss on the cheek chastely.

Violence

Witchiepoo bonks and curses everyone she meets. Characters fall down, clown-like, as they chase Jimmy and his flute. Some creepy images, like mean talking trees and skeletons. Explosions.

Language

The witch uses lots of bullying language like "stupid," "idiot," and "shut up."

Social Behavior

When Jimmy needs help, Mayor Pufnstuf goes to great lengths to help him. Be on the look out for some dated stereotyping, like the Redwood tree dressed as a Native American, or the East Wind looking like a Chinese sage and speaking with an exaggerated accent.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Occasional smoking though in a surreal context (a tree smokes a cigar). The witch often poisons or drugs the others -- in one episode her minions blow a special smoke into a crowd and everyone collapses in laughter...
