Being a huge Muppet / Jim Henson fan growing up in the 90s, now in my mid 20s I'm starting to learn more and more about Fraggle Rock. Unlike The Muppet Show, Muppets Tonight and Sesame Street which I seen regularly, Fraggle Rock didn't rerun in regular cable. I do remember seeing a little bit of it when it was on Disney somewhere and I did own the 90s VHS tapes. So now getting the DVD sets, I'm finally getting a good chance to see the episodes now. Though relating to my original question "How popular was Fraggle Rock at it's time"? It was shown on HBO right? Even today it's a channel you would order and it doesn't usually come with regular cable. I never really knew many people who talked about it except for adults who are in their 30s remember seeing it. It seems very popular to people who grew up in the 80s but still did most people have HBO in the 80s? I know that The Muppet Show and Sesame Street had huge successes when they came out so I wonder, was Fraggle Rock that big of a success back then?
