H.R. Pufnstuf's most beloved characters will return for a Nickelodeon special in early 2016, TVLine reports.

Pufnstuf and his friends, including Cling and Clang, Freddy the Flute and the Rescue Racer, will be featured in a Mutt & Stuff special, a live-action preschool series from Sid and Marty Krofft, who created H.R. Pufnstuf. In the special, Stuff's uncle H.R. Pufnstuf visits him at canine school, but Stuff goes overboard trying to impress his uncle and his friends from Living Island.

"H.R. Pufnstuf was the first TV show my brother and I created, so it has always held a special place in our hearts," Marty Krofft said in a statement. "Our fans constantly ask us to bring back Pufnstuf, and we feel the vibrant world of Mutt & Stuff is the perfect setting to revitalize these colorful characters and build excitement for new fans."
