Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by Whataday, Jan 14, 2004.
Confirmed: they're the UK shows :-D
Check this out and this that I found today
any comments ?
My DVD came today from Play.com yay just finished watching both dvds.
It was great the only sad part was that there were not many extra features only one documentary.
Anyone else get it today to?
Im gonna go store hunting for it on Monday mornin!
Yes, they are. The second episode on the DVD features the TVS logo. TVS being the British production company who made the British bits.
What eps are on this DVD? Does the disc include any scenes with Sprocket and the Canadian/American Doc? Who were the British characters? How similar or different were they from the ones I saw growing up? Do you recommend this DVD overall?
If you read back a page or two you'll see a list of the episodes. It doesn't contain any scenes with the American/Canadian Doc. Instead it contains scenes with Sprocket and Fulton Mckay, a Scottish actor who played a lighthouse keeper in the UK episodes called "The Captain". The cutscenes with "The Captain" are very different to the USA "Doc" scenes but the rest of the episodes are the same. As for a recomendation, i think BlueFrackle or one of the other Fraggle nuts around here will hopefully review the disc for the site soon.
BTW, just noticed, i originally guessed 7 out of the 12 episodes on the disc - my psychic powers are obviously at their peak again.
Just a quick note to say that Columbia reduced the RRP of the Fraggle Rock DVD today - it's now £14.99 rather than the previous £19.99. With the online sites giving you savings over the RRP you can now pick up the disc for £11.99 at play.com
Cheers, guys! We in the US may not see them for a while (if any), but speaking for all of us over here, we're glad someone gets them. Enjoy!
Ok, So I went to Asda and bought the Fraggle DVD for 14.99 !
They also had a double VHS set too, the same episodes without the making of. I bought that too, How could I resist? It was 9.99 !
Can anyone work out the 'Chapter Selection' titles on the card that comes with the DVD?
There are only 8 Chapters for Down At Fraggle Rock: Behind The Scenes , There are like 20 Chapters listed in the book.
I favour the "balls-up theory" myself...
Thanks for the update. Just to let you know that Parkes is actually Canadian, not American, but he played Doc for both countries. I found it interesting to read in the Internet Movie Database that McKay was from Scotland (he died in 1987).
