FRAGGLE ROCK being released in the u.k. i know im geting mine. i hate waiting.
Is there any chance this will get a R1 release?
i think so but not sure... as for me im going to get them now from the u.k. when they get released. i hate waiting.
I'd love to buy season sets of Fraggle Rock in Region 1.
this is interesting... Where are the Muppet Babies?
Don't forget that in the UK, the Fraggles lived below a lighthouse and the regular human was 'The Skipper'. I'm expecting the R2 discs to feature the British version. It was very confusing for me as a child as Irish tv showed the US versions but BBC showed 'The Skipper' versions... nearly fried my brain it did
I reallyreallyreallyreally want Fraggle Rock season sets (in region 1). But if we can't get season sets of the Muppet Show.... it doesn't seem likely. Sigh. Well, I'd buy best of DVDs too, 'cause I love those Fraggles!
The Henson Company has stated that they are interested in releasing it to R1 but there are no current plans. It seems very likely though.
I read recently, though I forget the source, that the Henson family bought the rights to "Fraggle Rock" from a German TV station. This may apply only to the UK release, but if the sale referred to general rights for the show, then a U.S. release would be pretty likely. I'm sure they must know that there is an audience for this show in the U.S.
Man, I'd buy this in a heartbeat. Best children's show ever.
Actually the best children's show is Muppet Babies.
I'm assuming that the problem with Muppet Show season sets are all the music clearances -- but Fraggle Rock wouldn't have those problems, right? All the songs were performed by the show's regular puppeteers and/or voice talents, and they were all songs written for the show, so Henson must own the rights to them already. If region 2 is getting Fraggle Rock, region 1 can't be all that far behind.
hehe, I would definitely get Muppet Babies. I loved that show... wonder how it will stand up to time. -Owl

the trash heap has spoken. nyaaaaah!
I want this in a region 1 release also...and the Muppet Babies.
*grumble* Just hearing the words "region 2" pushes my jealousy buttons. They always get the cool stuff!
they want everything first. even the stuff from the u.s. and most of the time they get it.
You have no idea how absurd that sounds, from a UK perspective. I couldn't begin to count the (UK and US) series that have been released in the US but not here!
well everything i want i have seen in the uk first. well all but are you being served. i dont understand why have not released it in the uk yet. all shows from the uk has been release in the uk first. this was a first for me to see. now i have seen shows released on tape in the uk first then end up on dvd in the us first. i have been haveing to buy the tomorrow people from the uk, they dont sell them here in the u.s. at all. anyway im just leting people know they can get shows in the uk thats not released here.
