Now Available: Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series Blu-ray

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment celebrates the 35 anniversary of Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series with a brand new Blu-ray release, now available for purchase.

Described by its legendary creator Jim Henson as “a high-energy, raucous musical romp,” Fraggle Rock stars a cast of puppet creatures called Fraggles, quirky cave-dwellers who live in an underground world alongside their industrious green neighbors, the Doozers, and a family of enormous Gorgs. The series follows the fun adventures of the furry subterranean creatures and features a unique mix of music from all genres including folk, blues, gospel, country and rock, all while embracing themes of friendship, tolerance, diversity and caring for the planet.

All 96 episodes in the 12-disc set from the show’s four seasons are FULLY REMASTERED IN HIGH-DEFINITION and presented with lossless audio on Blu-ray. This set is also available in special limited edition “scrapbook” packaging, featuring rare behind the scenes photos and an introduction from Uncle Travelling Matt.

Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series is loaded with bonus content on Blu-ray, including the all-new “Fraggle Music Celebration,” where viewers can enjoy their favorite Fraggle songs with sing-alongs for every episode (100 songs!) or hit shuffle and let the Fraggles choose the songs. Also newly included on the Blu-ray set is a fun and rare personal glimpse behind the curtain with creator Jim Henson, plus a 1993 throwback segment from “The Today Show” featuring Uncle Travelling Matt, along with more than eight hours of archival special features, including interviews with the cast and crew, featurettes, promos and the complete Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series.
