When PUFFS opened at the Elektra in 2016 after its original run at New York's Peoples Improv Theater, it immediately started gaining national media attention. The show was praised by Entertainment Weekly as "packed with knowing winks to its source material and a heart all its own" and by The Huffington Post for its "rip-roaring staging, wit and delightful theatrical craft." MTV News called it "equally laugh-out-loud funny and achingly tender." Hypable said "come prepared to laugh, but also to cry. The draw is Matt Cox's brilliant script and the cast's comedic chops." According to Nerdist, "As surprised as I was by how much I laughed at Puffs, I was all the more surprised at how it actually moved me."
