A Merry Fraggle Holiday

The Jim Henson Company and Lionsgate Home Entertainment are giving Fraggle fans a reason to celebrate this holiday season with the release of "Fraggle Rock: A Merry Fraggle Holiday" on DVD. This upcoming single-disc DVD release will contain three episodes from the classic Henson series.

  • "The Bells of Fraggle Rock" - It's time for the Festival of the Bells, but while the other Fraggles excitedly prepare, the holiday has lost its meaning for Gobo.
  • "The Grapes of Generosity" - After finding enchanted fruit that compels anyone who eats it to share with others, Gobo decides to keep all the fruit for himself.
  • "The Perfect Blue Rollie" - Wembley is happy when he and Boober find a rare stone - the 'Blue Rollie' - but Boober does not want to share with his friends.

The DVD will also include a selection of holiday-themed bonus features - including a full-length episode from the animated Fraggle Rock entitled "The Great Fraggle Freeze." In the episode the heat goes out in Doc's workshop, it has a chilling effect on Fraggle Rock, so Gobo sets out on a mission to the center of the Mystical Magical Maze to set things right. Other bonus features include interactive Fraggle games and a look at other classic Henson holiday titles.

Bonus Features:

  • Animated Fraggle Rock episode: "The Great Fraggle Freeze"
  • "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas" sing-along
  • A look at "The Christmas Toy"
  • Traveling Matt's Holiday Trivia
  • Holiday Game

Lionsgate will release this special DVD title just in time for the holidays - hitting stores on November 3, 2009. You can already pre-order the disc for the low price of just $8.99. Also hitting retail shelves on November 3rd, is the long-awaited "Fraggle Rock: The Complete Final Season" (season 4) DVD set and a repackaging of the "Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series Collection". Be sure to celebrate the holidays with the gift of Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock.

I fail to understand how the Grapes of Generocity qualifies as a holiday episode, but I'll take it.
