The Bugaloos, Joy (Caroline Ellis), Courage (John Philpott), IQ (John McIndoe) and Harmony (Wayne Laryea), were your average half-bug half-human do-gooders and a smashing British rock group to boot.
They lived in Tranquillity Forest where they looked for good deeds to do. They also sang a few songs in between.
Sparky (Billy Barty) was their firefly friend, who helped the Bugaloos.
Their wicked nemesis, Benita Bizarre (Martha Raye), was hell-bent on trying to destroy their “disgusting goodness.”
Along with her henchmen Woofer (Joy Campbell), and Tweeter (Van Snowden) and her chauffeur Funky Rat (Sharon Baird), Benita hatched a new scheme each week to kidnap and destroy The Bugaloos.
The characters and the show were the work of Sid and Marty Krofft.
