video Hats off to Charles Nelson Reilly

Charles Nelson Reilly would have turned 82 today, Jan. 13.

Among his memorable roles was Horatio J. HooDoo on the Sid & Marty Krofft show Lidsville. The series was about a boy who falls into a magician’s hat and winds up in a strange, psychedelic world of living, talking hats. The boy is played by Butch Patrick, previously Eddie on The Munsters. Watch the crazy opening credits—they tell the whole story.

Opening, Lidsville (1971)
