CRAGG Live interview with Caroline Ellis - April 7, 2018


Birmingham, AL – October 23, 2002.  A Sid and Marty Krofft ‘70s children show will
be revisited with a worldwide,
free fan reunion teleconference on Sunday, November 10, at 2 pm
CST or 8 pm GMT.  The entire cast including
popular main characters Caroline Ellis (Joy),

John Philpott (Courage),  John McIndoe (I.Q.) and Wayne Laryea (Harmony) will be on the reunion teleconference. 

In 1970, fresh from their first hit show, H.R. Pufnstuf brothers, Sid and Marty Krofft, introduced
their second 
Saturday morning offering: The Bugaloos.  The offbeat adventures of four
British teenagers (with wings and antennae),
The Bugaloos was a prototypical Krofft show, mixing
live actors
with puppets, musical interludes, and fanciful sets.

“The Bugaloos, H.R. Pufnstuf, and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters are all great shows adults my
age have fond memories of and
when I found Bill Ung’s website, I was delighted to be able to find a
source to purchase the new videos of the
Bugaloos series for my children,” said Mark Jackson, CEO,
Moreson Conferencing, Inc., and avid Bugaloos fan, “These shows are far better for my two boys
to watch
than what’s on the TV today.  This teleconference is fondly dedicated to four kids and
a firefly who made my childhood
more joyful with great children’s stories and great music.”


The first teleconference in November 10, 2002 was a smashing success! 
Truly an historic occasion, which lasted 3 hours, this marked the first time in 32 years

the cast had been together.  Cast members who participated included
Caroline Ellis (Joy), John Philpott (Courage),
Wayne Laryea (Harmony),
John McIndoe (I.Q.), Walker Edmiston
(the voice of Sparky),
Sharon Baird (Funky Rat), Joy Campbell (Woofer),
and Van Snowden (Tweeter). 
Fans were given the opportunity to ask
questions, and the cast thrilled the fans with
stories and laughs aplenty! 
I have to say that the cast are remarkable people. 
Gracious, loving and
genuine.  The world is a better place for them.
A very special thank you to Bill Ung and Mark Jackson.
You've earned your wings!


On June 13th, 2004, the second Bugaloos' teleconference was held, made possible again
by Mark Jackson, CEO of Moreson Conferencing.

Another smashing success, the cast joined fans for tons of laughs and stories.  The
conference lasted for hours, and I have to say the cast sounded as if they just stepped
off the set of the Bugaloos!

We hope to still pull off a Bugaloos reunion in person!
