I've just started watching Six Feet Under on Bravo, where it's being syndicated.

Okay, yet another guy looking for the name of a TV show from the 70s. It was kinda like the Muppets, had a laugh track and musical sequences, set in a woodsy town. There was an owl who brewed up potions, a teenage band of bees who fly in the title sequence, an antagonistic, aristocratic lady with a pointy nose, lots of psychedelic sequences, etc. [more inside]
