    Does anyone else think it would be cool if they made a Fraggle Rock video game for Gameboy Advance? I would think it would have 2D graphics and you got to choose whatever Fraggle you wanted to be out of the main five. And you were sent to go on different journeys to outer space, the gorg's garden, the trash heap, etc.
    So if anyone has contacts to any major gaming company I would definitely consider making a game of this incredible show to mark the 20th anniversary of Fraggle Rock. :D

    But why just for Gameboy Advance? (Although, I would love that as I'm not a huge gaming person and only have a Gameboy Advance, but still...) Why not for Nintendo Gamecube or Playstation 2? Or even the evilest of evils... X-Box? That way it'd be all like wicked 3D graphics, which would rock because as the Fraggles are Muppets they, like us, live in a 3D world. Imagine the possibilities! I'd probably buy a Playstation 2 if they made a game like that for it.

    Well... I _am_ thinking about learning how to program the GBA - Although I'm sure that the JHC would not approve of us using their characters in a video game, it is a neat idea...

    20 YEARS?!


    I was 10 when it came out. Geez, I had no idea time had passed by so fast. I have the most recent 5 videos that I think Buena Vista produced of Fraggle Rock.

    I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to have Karen post some remininsceses about her days as Red Fraggle, and maybe pop in when we do the role-plays again.

    Karen, if you see this, and have time, put down some rememberances of how you felt when you had the role of Red, what it was like to watch the first episode completed, how well everyone took to the show and Red, what impact was expected and happened to the public with this show's performance over the years, your ideas about the cartoon series based on the show and Red on the toon, and how you'd feel about doing a Fraggle movie or TV special or something. Would love to hear some words from you about this magnificent show on it's 20th anniversary!

    You still reading this thread, Karen?

    Fraggle Rock still seems fresh today. Lord, how I wish they'd make a Fraggle Movie. Maybe it might not make a kazillion bucks, but it'd be A1 quality and would help Henson get some respect, that's for sure :)

    I started getting serious about the Muppets with Fraggle Rock.

    Everything Jim Henson said made sense to me.

    I never gave up on what Fraggle Rock had to say–ever!

    As time passed the rest of the world seemed stupid most of the time, and Fraggle Rock grew more important to me. I guess for the vast majority of people in the world, the opposite is true :(

    I'm over 30 years old now, and I still feel the same.

    I guess the Fraggle Rock effect has been permanent.

    That's the way I want it :)

    Thanks to Karen and everybody else connected with the Rock :D

    Hey I was thinking that now that its the 20 year mark for Fraggle Rock why not make dvds, i mean they have them in france, why not us?:confused: The muppet show did dvds 25 years later why not fraggle rock? I also thought palisades could make fraggle figures to be released with the dvds! People would buy them if the dvds were sold, commercials (promotion) and possible return to tv on cbs! I know for sure that the merchandise whould sell very well!
    Does anybody have the stats on the possible release of the dvds?

    Apparently Palisades shopped the idea of Fraggle Figures and Dark Crystal figures to a lot of different retailers and there was no interest. If there were DVDs or the show was in syndication they would definitely have more of a chance. The Fraggle characters really would make spectacular figures! And the sets! Cool stuff!!

    Yep. Fraggles would be great toys :)

    I didn't buy the Jen and Kira dolls. They looked weird. Then again, nearly all the Princess Leia figures look like Anthony from the Red Hot Chili peppers :rolleyes:

    I woulda thought that a Spawn-quality Skeksis or Mystic would be great, though. Or at least gimme an Urskek. Or Fizzgig, by itself :D

    Man!! This brings back memories. I LOVED Fraggle Rock as a kid, and Red was always my favourite..:)

    My God...20 whole years.

    The messages and overall importance of Fraggle Rock still shines bright in my mind. It is my favorite Henson show, and definitely something that I will hold close to my heart forever. The sheer thought of Fraggle Rock's greatness is overwhelming to me. I am sometimes brought to tears just thinking about the love and warmth encompassed within 96 30-minute episodes.

    There are a lot of bad things in this world. There are so many negative words used angry people, hateful actions and gratuitous stupidity that tears people apart. When Fraggle Rock plays, all of that melts away. There is nothing but good attached to Fraggle Rock. My life has truly been bettered by Fraggle Rock.

    So, Happy Anniversary Fraggle Rock! My the world be cleansed by your sentiments, delighted by your silliness, joyful in your songs, and educated by your messages.

    Yup. It's kinda painful looking at the new Muppet figures ( now that I own a few of them ) and seeing how perfect they're made. If they did the fraggles like that... they'd be exactly as I'd always dreamed them to be. Oh well. Wish the Henson folks would get up off their cracker and put the fraggles on DVD. All 96 episodes that is. :)

    Happy Anniversary, Fraggles!

    To Gobo, Red, Boober, Wembley, Mokey, Travelling Matt, Doc, Sprocket, Junior Gorg, Ma and Pa Gorg, Marjorie, Philo, and Gunge (and everyone else down in Fraggle Rock): ....


    Fraggle Rock is my favourite J.H. show...

    Thanks to everyone for all the appreciative words. I told the Fraggle cast and crew to check out the messages here and look at Jamie's glorious Fraggle menu! Wonderful work Jamie! I'm glad people are getting a chance to enjoy it a bit longer.

    Everyone who worked on Fraggle Rock is thrilled and grateful that so many people enjoy the show. It's proof that doing something with quality and integrity can be worthwhile.

    Let's hope that it won't be too long before a new generation will get a chance to discover Fraggle Rock.

    Thanks again to Muppet Central and Fraggle fans around the world for keeping the magic of Fraggle Rock alive.

    And thank-you, Jim.

    Well, I guess that answers my question as to whether or not you're still reading the thread :)

    Thanks, Karen :D

    Glad you like the menu, Karen. Rarely does a show these days bring the knid of joy that Fraggle Rock did to all of us. I wish someone would bring it back.

    Bring Fraggle Rock back....................... Thats the best thing I've heard in a loooooonnnnngg time.

    All I can say is "Wow!" too!

    Even today, I can pull out an episode on tape, place it gently in my VCR and almost forget that its all puppets etc. Even today, the show seems fresh and current. (I really don't know how to say it, but you know what I mean)

    You say that hopefully it won't be too long before another generation will get a chance to discover Fraggle Rock... This is taking place now! I stopped by Blockbuster and, what did I see, but Fraggle tapes! (The 1993 re-release) I am amazed now to see how many people even know of Fraggle Rock considering HBOs limited penetration back in 1983... Think of how many people would watch now with the number of people that have HBO today - or even if it were to make it onto Nickelodeon or Disney again.

    To all the cast and crew - Thanks!

    Yeah, I know exactly what you mean! It's like when you look back at most 80's cartoons. They are SO completely dated, and so 80's and while we enjoy that nastalgia, it's not really that good. But Fraggle Rock is ageless! Although it's also a nastalgia trip, it's also something I could see first being put on the air now, and it would still be as popular.

    That's just how great Fraggle Rock is!
