    Hi Guys,

    Maybe going against the majority here, but I am thrilled by this news.

    I am hoping for a Season 4 release to complete the box sets and a Complete series box set as a seperate item is so cool.

    The extras are interesting, not really a mention of Fraggles Look For Jobs, and Doozer Music has still not been put onto DVD, but I guess they have to keep something back for later releases, today we have DVD..............what will be in another 25 years!

    Its just another great Fraggle collectible, and what a great way to end the Fraggle releases.

    I also think its fantastic news that the press release states that 1.3 million Fraggle DVD's have already sold, not bad for a 25 yr old kids show!

    Thanks and congratulations Hit/Henson!

    Chris

    Somehow the fact that I am the same age as FR makes me feel both very old and very young *lol*:excited:
    Of course, many of the people I know around my age don't have the sort of money to get the whole series boxset on top of the normal seasons (I know I don't) so I hope season four is not just a boxset thing (I don't think it will be though :))

    somehow i have a feeling i will be getting everything. i seem to do that a lot with box sets. being a collector does that to you i guess. happened to me with the OC when that came out as the complete series but there seems to always be something about the box set that makes the upgrade worthwhile...that one being the first season (probably the only season worth watching) was remastered in widescreen...the twin peaks box set had both versions of the pilot episode for the first time on a US dvd release...so i hope the box warrants a reason to get it over just the fourth season. i can't imagine just a new short being the only thing. but that and packaging so far sound like the only thing. we'll just have to wait and see...but most likely i'll still get it. lol. if anything...christmas is right around the corner from the release

    "Fraggle pebbles?" I prefer Fruity Pebbles, personally. Never could bring myself to eat Fraggle. :smirk: :excited: :coy:

    I think a miniature of the Rock would be an awesome box for this, though, perhaps not entirely reasonable. Other box-sets have come in plastic boxes, but I don't think I've seen anything with the detail that a replica of Fraggle Rock would have.

    Maybe it could look like a Doozer construction. That'd be cool!

    I'm calling HIT right now to try and figure out if a season 4 set is coming or not with the same extras as the complete series set. Wish me luck! :)

    Well, I just got off the phone with HIT...

    A solo season 4 set seems to be in place but the person I was on the phone with told me to contact Lions Gate about any release info on the sets. So here I go!

    For some unexplained reason, Lions Gate doesn't have a phone number on their site so I left them an e-mail. I hope I get a response soon about this.

    Best of luck to you my good friend. It's best that we get some solid answers so we don't waste our good money on certain things, not that these last two sets are a waste. ;)

    Technically, you're one year older than the series, given that it debuted in 1983, one year before my soon-to-be-24-in-October birthday (1984). That aside, being around the same years Fraggle Rock debuted & aired makes all of us 20-somethings feel old (in the case of current generations who've never seen the series) and young (in the case of the franchise's revival).

    I doubt they'd hold back season 4 and just release it as a part of the complete series. The only thing that concerns me is will this set come with the notebooks and everything? I'd still prefer to get the entire collection (as it technically is cheaper if you get them all together).

    As for the box, it probably will be shaped like something. Most complete series boxes are. Full House is shaped like a house, so wasn't the original version of the Invader Zim complete series... King of Queens is shaped like a UPS truck... They're planning a Speed Racer shaped like the Mach Go... The Real Ghostbusters could come in a box shaped like the firehouse (the votes haven't been tallied yet)

    Just so long as it doesn't end up like this

    Of course, What's Happening is such a bad show, it actually deserves that treatment.

    So I guess my idea of having the complete set done in the shape of a mini replica of the Rock isn't so far fetched. ^_^ Just as long as that doesn't squish the DVDs in the packaging! XD
