Fraggle fans will be able to dance their cares away with an all-new, fully-loaded DVD box set featuring hours of Fraggle fun! Fraggle Rock: The Complete Collection is set for release on November 4, 2008 from HIT Entertainment. The giant box set will feature all 96 episodes of Fraggle Rock plus hours of behind the scenes bonus features distributed over 20 discs (totaling more than 38-hours of content). The big set will include more than two hours of never-before-seen bonus features including an all-new Fraggle Rock short. The set will also include an original Fraggle Rock poster, plus special collectible packaging!
The all-new Fraggle Rock short, produced by The Jim Henson Company, will star the one and only Red Fraggle (puppeteered by Karen Prell). Filming is expected to take place later this month for the short, which is being written and directed by Cory Edwards (writer/director of the upcoming Fraggle Rock film).
The DVD set will include the 24 unreleased episodes from Fraggle Rock's forth season - including "Sprocket's Big Adventure," "Wembley's Wonderful Whoopie Water," "Sidebottom Blues," "Uncle Matt's Discovery," "Junior Faces the Music," "A Tune For Two," "The Perfect Blue Rollie," "A Brush With Jealousy," "Wembley's Flight," "Red's Blue Dragon," "Wonder Mountain," "Space Frog Follies" and "Boober Gorg."
