    That makes two of us :crazy:

    It was; the first UK run of episodes aired around 5pm Saturdays. The second run switched to Wednesday afternoons in the Childrens' ITV slot, and subsequent seasons were mainly aired on Sunday mornings.

    I have always wondered how they handled certain episode of UK Fraggle Rock. Like In Red's Blue Dragon, when some of the Doc and Sprocket scenes take place outside the workshop, and we see The Dragon from this episode appear and walk by, and Doc thinks it's Fluffenella in a Dragon Costume. I wonder if they did something similar in the UK. Also I wonder what the Captain's plot was in The River of Life? I wonder how he contaminated the Fraggle's Water. And Uncle Matt's Discovery there was some scenes that took place with Doc outside, away from The Workshop. Also in Sproket's Big Adventure and The Voice Inside, I wonder what happened with The Captain/Lighthouse scenes.

    Notes:
    Simon O'Brien replaced John Gordon-Sinclair as lighthouse keeper at the start of 1989, although I don't yet know in which episode.

    An episode of the animated series, 'The Great Radish Round-Up' aired on January 2nd 1990.
  5. BlueFrackle Active Member

    Alex,
    What a fantastic list!

    How many of these episodes do you have?
  6. anathema Active Member

    Not as many as I'd like :-( I have the 20 shows released on VHS in the 80s plus the 12 released on DVD a few years ago (8 of which simply duplicate the VHS copies), plus two off-air recordings ("Born to Wander" and "The Garden Plot").

    If anybody's reading this and has other UK shows they'd be willing to trade, please let me know! :)
  7. ZootSaxPlayer Member

    When did the UK version of "Change of Address" air?
  8. anathema Active Member

    Final and complete list! Those marked with an [*] are known to still exist in some form, although so far as I'm aware only the 12 released on DVD a few years ago are available in broadcast-quality.

    Rob do you have any UK Fraggles on tape? Alex, P.K. debuted in the series premiere 'Gone But Not Forgotten' episode. Danny did you get your two off air episodes from Lee Bannister?
  10. anathema Active Member

    Uh, no, PK debuted in 'Born to Wander'. BJ debuted in 'Gone but not Forgotten', as my list says.
  11. BlueFrackle Active Member

    Oops that what I ment, and somehow I missed your list?!
  12. ZootSaxPlayer Member

    Can somebody make a list of the French Fraggle Rock broadcast dates?
  13. Kermieuk Well-Known Member

    I also remember watching fraggle rock on no 73 but also later on citv weekdays after school. One of my fondest memories is the bells of fraggle rock early in the morning with the tree lights lit and all the excitment of Christmas as a kid surrounded by presents. However as this aired on 22nd dec there would have been no presents around. Funny how the memory changes over time!
    Such a shame there is no way of recovering all the UK eps.....maybe one day!

  14. Kermieuk Well-Known Member

    Has anyone else noticed in the UK ep of wembleys egg....where do they get the balloons from?

    Chris
  15. anathema Active Member

    It was repeated on Christmas Day 1985...
  16. Kermieuk Well-Known Member

    Whoa hoo, my memory isn't fading yet! Thanks for clearing that up.

    Chris
  17. BlueFrackle Active Member

    Chris, I found the UK 'Festival of the Bells'!
  18. ZootSaxPlayer Member

    Where?
  19. MuppetDanny Well-Known Member

    Thank heavens that someone else remembers Fraggle Rock on "No. 73". I am pretty sure I have pointed this out somewhere on the fourm, those were the days! :D
  20. BlueFrackle Active Member

    I found someone who had taped it. Danny some of my UK FR eps have No 73 links around them.
