    What Muppet event did you see Kathy Mullen and Michael Frith at? Did you get to meet them?

    Well, as a child from the 80's era and or "Fraggle" era, this is really cool! I can just see Red, Gobo, Wembley, Boober, & Mokey walking down a city street seeing and hearing the large city, having others look at them as they walk talking and discussing this "new" world. I think the film will do fairly well - and once it hits DVD or Video, it'll sell quickly, I'm sure!

    I'm from the '87 era...Fraggles were still "dancin' their cares away.." - some episodes in syndication on HBO - but I still got to watch them - I even got to watch "Fraggle Rock - The Animated Series" - I liked it , but missed the puppets...

    Well, I certainly agree that the possibility of a Fraggle Rock movie is the best Muppets news in a good long while, but I'm not sure I agree that the Disney aquisition of the Muppets should be given credit for great things happening in the Brian Henson camp. The Henson's had all these great characters to play with before, and they've got them to play with now, regardless of Disney's intervention. Now, were you to say, "Yay! We're gonna see more Kermit and Piggy on TV and in movies," then sure, giving props to Disney makes sense, since they're the one's making it happen. As for me I'm most excited about the Fraggle Rock movie because the Fraggles, which I consider to be the purest and most untainted Muppet concept, have been kept mercifully free of the Disney Grasp, and I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of magic the Henson's still have up their sleeves.

    ...That would be...SO funny! I cracked up while reading that, actually! As a fellow video gamer, and as someone who likes Boober...I think that would be hilarious! :D

    I thought that the fraggles last appeared in The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson. I haven't actually seen that special, so it's possible that they only appeared in clips from the show, but even if that is the case, Gobo, Mokey, Wembly, and Red were all present at Jim Hensons memorial service.

    I think I'd actually push for Bill Barretta for Junior Gorg, but I'm sure other people have already mentioned that already.

    I think it should be David Rudman because he can do that goofy baby voice, like Baby Bear.

    What's this about a cast party? :confused:

    And the fraggles were always in Canada. Gobo's tuques and accent prove it. How do you think we canucks got so cool?

    Y'know, I actually hope that they shoot the enitrety of the Fraggle Rock movie in Toronto. Canada truly is the home of the Fraggles, and I think they need to preserve that connection.

    Well, I think in the Fraggle timeline, the Fraggles visited Fozzie's Mom's house before the final three episodes - the reason is that when the Fraggles visit the house, Doc asks Sprocket "Are those the fraggles you keep telling me about?"

    At least, that's what I think....

    Lisa Henson made a small mention that this is in development at the MTR in LA. I'm very excited about this, and I hope they stay true to the original message in the series as well.

    And I HOPE they don't go all hog-wild with new PEOPLE characters in outer-space and keep the focus solely on the Fraggle Five.

    So, any speculation on the story plot?
