Fraggle Rock: Meet The Fraggles DVD cover


Fraggle Rock: Meet The Fraggles

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 5/12/13

Fraggle Rock was a really cute kids' show that adults could also enjoy, from 1983-1987. I was in college at that time, so I didn't see it, but I did see the other Jim Henson show "The Muppet Show" quite a bit. This has the same silly, fun, muppet humor. Fraggle Rock does not have the Muppet show characters like Kermit or Miss Piggy. It has all original characters, the Fraggles, who live underground.  They do a lot of dancing and singing songs.

This disk set has just 6 of the episodes from the first season. It would make a fun gift to any parent or child. If you haven't seen Fraggle Rock, and you're not sure you'll like it, this will introduce you to them. Otherwise, if you're a Fraggle Rock fan, it's better to buy the new 30th Anniversary disk set, or the original season sets.

This disk does not have any extras or any closed-captioning. I don't know why all kids' DVD's don't have closed-captioning. Too cheap to add it, I guess.


We're looking forward to the upcoming DVD release of "Fraggle Rock: Meet The Fraggles." In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Jim Henson's beloved children series, Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment is releasing "Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series Collection" set on DVD on May 14!
