The Bugaloos Board Game

The Bugaloos Board Game was released in 1971 by Milton Bradley. The object of the game, is to be the first to reach the recording studio (aka Tranquility Island) in the center of the board. Here are a couple quick shots of the game (more to come): The "story" of the game goes like this:
    The Bugaloos, a quartet of muscians who have dedicated their
    lives to helping those in need are threatened and sometimes captured
    on their way home to Tranquility Island by the Rock Witch Benita
    Bizarre and her "in-crowd" of weirdos, chauffeur Funky Rat, Peter
    Platter and the stereo twins Woofer and Tweeter.
Okay, so Milton Bradley aren't exactly Krofft experts. Peter Platter certainly didn't work for Benita Bizarre, and "Tranquility Island", we assume, is a mixture (confusion?) of Tranquility Forest, and "Living Island", ala H.R. Pufnstuf.

The game itself is a rather ... interesting piece. The artwork on it is, shall we say, a bit on the unusual side? I suppose it's all a matter of taste, really. Check out the shots of the board game, and draw your own conclusions...
