This exclusive was dropped in my hat and seemed just too bizarre not to report. On Friday, July 22, former Sly Stallone squeeze Angie Everhart will moderate a Sigmund and the Sea Monsters-centric panel down at San Diego's Comic-Con. Angie will grill the show's creators, Sid and Marty Krofft, about all things Sigmund — including the Sept. 6 DVD release of the first season of the psychedelic 1973-75 kiddie show. "Now that Angie has a young son, she is very aware of kids' programming and she is a huge H.R. Pufnstuf fan," explains Marty. "I thought she would be great to host our panel at Comic-Con this year, so I asked her and here she is."
The panel, taking place at 10 a.m. at the San Diego Convention Center's Room 23ABC, will also address in-development feature film adaptations of two other '70s Krofft titles. DreamWorks Animation is bringing to life Lidsville, while Sony is planning an H.R. Pufnstuf movie. The Krofft brothers will be on hand to sign a new Sigmund poster, exclusive to Comic-Con. Can anyone else detect a growing scent of nerd adrenaline in the air?
