Years before Elliott hid E.T. in a classic Steven Spielberg movie, two brothers found themselves in a similar situation with a friendly sea creature in this fondly remembered children's show from genre masters Sid and Marty Krofft ("H.R. Pufnstuf").
Johnnie Whitaker ("Family Affair") and Scott Kolden play the siblings who have a big secret to keep ... namely Sigmund, who's something of an outcast from his own kind because he doesn't want to scare people. DVD extras: audio commentary by Whitaker and Kolden; highlights of American Cinematheque "H.R. Pufnstuf" event; song selections. *** (Not rated)
