    Hit was, but no company offered the money they wanted so they are no longer up for sale.

    Bonus CD at "Best Buy" only!

    In June it was reported that the "Fraggle Rock - Complete First Season" DVD box set would come with a bonus CD-ROM full of all kinds of Fraggle fun. However since this was originally announced, HIT Entertainment has decided to offer this only as a special store exclusive for Best Buy retail stores. The special CD-ROM will included Fraggle Rock desktop themes, screensavers, wallpaper and an all new desktop game called "Fraggle Rock: Jump & Munch". Best Buy will be offering the Fraggle Rock season 1 box set with the exclusive CD-ROM enclosed -- the CD-ROM will not be available anywhere else. So if you want the bonus CD-ROM, be sure to pick up your copy at you local Best Buy, or order your copy from Bestbuy.com.

    I reserved mine at Suncoast and as a bonus when I pick it up I will recive a free doozer pvc.

    Possibly more than one. I asked the guy if I got to pick which one I got and he said sure and if he had extra he'd let me have more than one. They know me at the store and know I'm a big Henson fan.

    HIT Entertainment and Best Buy. E-mail either one's customer service and they will tell you that the bonus CD is exclusive only to Best Buy, no where else will have it.

    Here is what HIT says when you ask them about it:
    "Thank you for contacting us. Best Buy will be offering the Fraggle Rock Season 1 Box Set with an exlusive CD-ROM. The CD-ROM will included desktop themes, screensavers, wallpaper and a game called Jump & Munch. This CD will only be avalible at Best Buy stores.

    Thank you for your interest in HIT Entertainment."

    Best Buy's standard responce on the subject is pretty similar too.

    well I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of both Fraggle Rock Season One & Doing What Doozers Do. I have yet to watch both of them but until now i thought i might be able tp provide some cool info.

    Apart from a leaflet inside Doing What Doozers Do there's not much i can say about it without watching it. The same Leaflet is found in the FR season One Boxset so more on that later,

    The box itself features Uncle Matt on one side and Sprocket on the other plus the Fraggles on the front of the cover have a sort of shine to them. If you feel the box the Fraggle characters as well as the Doozers are bumpy, not quite sure how to explain it.

    When you open the box you find eveything inside comes like ppages from a book. Each disc has a picture of a Fraggle and the "page" beside the disc gives you a very detailed summary of each episode found on the disc.

    The fifth disc which features Wembely gives us a little more detail on the nex exclusive Fragle Rock cast and crew intervies.

    Here's what it has to say:

    Get down with Fraggle Rock as you listen to key performers, creators and producers of the show who reunited in early 2005 to discuss the series in exclusive intervies. This feature includes clips from the show, never-before-seen Photos, early drawings of the world of fraggle rock and previousley unreleased excerpts of auditions for the show. Gain insight into the Fraggles' world as the group discusses topics such as the origins of Fraggle Rock, the "muppet way" of puppeteering and more! Others topics include: the casting of the show, the writting and production of the series, and recollections of the puppets workshop.

    Sounds really intresting, I can't wait to see it. Unfortunatly I probably wont get around to it till tommorow. So if there's any questions about the set that you'd lik to know let me know and i'll try to answer the best i can.

    Ps the Jim Henson replica notebook looks very intresting but it seems like Jim wasn't the tidiest of writers so i'll have to leave that for tommorow too but it looks very intresting

    The Woogle World, good thing they changed it to FRAGGLE ROCK!

    Edit: I almost forgot abot the little leaflet, sadly I don't really have that much time but it says to check out www.zazzle.com for some cool Fraggle Fun. I'm not sure if it's up yet i havn't checked myself but from what it says here we can make our own cards, t-shirts and posters

    lets see what that's about

    well I just finished watching the New Fraggle Rock Documentry and I must say I am very pleased, very, very, very pleased. So pleased in fact that for the first time in my life I am going to actually write to a company and thank them for their hard work.

    Everyone you'd expect is there (not including Kathy Mullen). It's a very long special feature but that's good, overall i enjoyed it very much especially when Jerry Nelson explained the diffrence between Gobo's voice and Robins I found that very intresting.

    At the end of it all Hit was kind enough to give special thanks to the fan by stating that we help keep the magic alive.

    I'm very tired so unfortunatly I don't want to go to in deph plus I rather you all see it and enjoy it for yourselfs. Trust me this dvd is worth it for this new documentary on it's own

    Who exactly is there. I would expect Jerry Nelson , Seve Whitmire, Dave Goelz, and Karen Prell (Too bad Kathy Mullen wasn't there.) Anyone else? Jerry Juhl, Gerry Parkes, Cheryl Wagner, any Hensons?
  11. King Prawn

    King Prawn Well-Known Member

    There was Jerry Juhl, his wife (who's name escapes me at the moment) Steve Whitmere, Dave Goelz, Jerry Nelson (though he was interviewed on his own) Karen Prell as well as three others one wh I think was the producer I don't ecall their names.

    I'll fill everyone in on all the details tommorow, I really need to get some sleep now :)

    I assume that the opening and closing titles for each episode have been re-done. Is this correct? Also - are the episodes "strung together" on each disc? And are they all complete (as far as you can tell)? And do they have the alternate openings with Gobo and Wembley on episodes #8 and #12? (I assume not)

    Hi King Prawn,

    Is the Behind-the-Scenes documentary (the 1987 one narrated by Jim Henson) complete and uncut? When introducing the puppeteers Jim mentions their previous "Muppet" work, or that they worked on "The Muppet Show".

    With the ridiculousness of copyrights these days, I'm not sure if it extends to just the use of the word "Muppet".

    Silly as it may seem, I've been wondering. Thank you.

    I watched the bonus features and all I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!the interviews are at least an hour long maby even an hour and a half,it features drawings,and film of the tryouts which features jerry nelson doing boober,steve doing gobo (which sounds alot like his kermit) an dave doing wembly,it also features karen doing mokey and katheryn doing red,this was when they were trying to figure out who was going to do what voice,the down at fraggle rock appears to be what I remembered it to be back when I first saw it,and yes the episodes all have beginning and end credits all original saying "featuring jim hensons muppets" ,the note pad is a little scratchy but I read it and it's interesting to see how the woozles evolved into the fraggles,the wozles evolved into the gorgs and the wizzles evolved into the doozers,the rest you'll have to find out for your self (don't want to give away too much)I think season two should have reproductions of the original drawings/sketches made for the show,also I would like to see a 30 track "best of" c.d.featuring their "hits"maby as a bonus disc on a future set.......

    Are the special features all on one disk or are they spread out?

    Also, you guys know yet what the bonus episode is on the Doozer DVD?

    The special feature are all found on disc 5 where as each of the other disc comes with 6 episodes each. The Menus are not as nice as the ones on the single release and keep an eye out for how the word Doozer came to be, it's a very intresting interview.

    The people interviewed were:

    Karen Prell
    Steve Whitmere
    Dave Goels
    Jerry Nelson
    Jerry Juhl
    Duncan Kenworthy - Co-Creator, International Producer
    Jocelyn Stevenson Co-creator/writer
    Lawrence Mirkin - producer
    Susan Juhl - Script Editor

    that's all of them plus their some footage which oter people such as Micheal Frith (i hope i spelled his name right)

    I'm now going to try an attempt to unlock the bonus episode which i can never do without watching the three normal episodes on the disc first and sinc ei've been so keen on watching some season 1 episodes such as marooned i havn't gotten round to watching them yet.

    Hopefully tonight i can let you all know what the bonus episode is

    :smirk: :excited:
