Fraggle Rock Returning To HBO

For those living under a rock or for youngster let me begin to tell you what Fraggle Rock is. Fraggle Rock is live action puppet show about Muppet like creatures, which ran from 1983 till 1987. The show is also known as Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock or Fraggle Rock with Jim Henson’s Muppets.

As you might have guessed it by the aliases of the show names this series was created by Jim Henson. Who is also the man behind the Muppets. But that is a whole other story.

The show is set in a natural cave system where we follow the adventures of the Fraggles and other creatures living near and in the caves, while dealing with serious issues like prejudice and social conflict mixed with music and silliness. So it is a series for all ages.

I have spent many Sunday mornings watching this show and its catchy theme song. Although I haven’t heard it in its original version, until now, because like 94 other countries mine was dubbed (For those of you who are curious here is the version I grew up with: https://youtu.be/KSHHms6A9Oo). But that does not change that it is catchy. Once you hear it, it is stuck in your mind. (You’re welcome.)

 

And now for the good news. We can watch the original show again. No remake or what so ever. HBO has remastered the show and it will be available at the end of the year via HBO and for streaming via HBO GO, HBO Now and HBO On Demand. So we don’t have to wait very long to enjoy the 96 adventures from our favourite Fraggles.
