Fraggle Rock - Lionsgate/Henson Agreement Also Brings a Repackaged Complete Series Set


20-disc collection in a 'bookcase' set coming November 3rd (at a lower cost, too!)

Yesterday we had the report and press release about Lionsgate Entertainment's new distribution deal directly with The Jim Henson Company, and the November 3rd DVD releases of both Fraggle Rock - The Final Season (the 4th and last season of the show, never before released on DVD by itself) and Fraggle Rock - A Merry Fraggle Holiday (a collection of three Christmas episodes on a single disc, along with a bonus holiday episode from the animated Fraggle Rock series that came later).

Today Lionsgate/Henson revealed that on the same date they are also re-releasing Fraggle Rock - The Complete Series Collection on DVD. This was originally released last November, in a collectible "rock" package, when Lionsgate was distributing the series for HIT Entertainment. But the HIT- designed package was very upsetting to fans, as it suffered from issues where the discs could get scratched up while being stored in the studio's box.

So Lionsgate/Henson's new release of Fraggle Rock - The Complete Series Collection is repackaged in a more conventional "bookcase" set, containing 20 discs (same count as the previous version) that seems to consist of the same content, including the extras:
  • BEHIND THE ROCK
    • Inner Gorg - An Interview with the Performers inside the Costumes
    • Designing the Puppets - An Interview with the Puppet Makers
  • SILLY CREATURES SPEAK
    • Directing the Fraggles -An Interview with Eric Till and George Bloomfield
  • SOUNDS OF FRAGGLE ROCK
    • Let the Music Play - An Interview with Phil Balsam and Dennis Lee
    • Dance Your Cares Away - Evolution of the Theme Song
  • A FRAGGLE CELEBRATION
    • You Cannot Leave the Magic - Excerpts from the Last Day of Shooting
    • Celebrating Fraggle Rock - Excerpts from the Wrap Party
Cost is a bit lower this time, too, at $99.98 SRP (forty less than the HIT version). Here's an exclusive first look at the new packaging:
