New behind-the-scenes book to celebrate Fraggle Rock

    Agreed. The Fraggle culture was always straightforward, I thought.
    Indeed. The Fraggles often-musical interactions with one another, the other species of the rock, and the unknown helped make the series into the gem it was and still continues to be.

    Indeed. Just as Disney would have you Wish Upon a Star & The Muppets would try to help people find that Rainbow Connection, the Fraggle culture would always be one to get one to Dance [Their] Cares Away, so to speak.
    Like Boober. XD
    Agreed. The world as it is now in both the corporate sense and in the media sense proves as such.

    Honestly, there's both humor and darkness about the show. Both are accurate and both are equally important.

    Though true, the show was clearly meant to have a loveable & enjoyable, and yet, straightforward-with-no-strings-attached outlook.

    It got a lot farther in talking about how its world works than many tv shows about other worlds that I can think of :)...
    I think that is one of the things I like best about it, while there are still somethings that they could have added depth to, it had a real ending that felt right, not just something slapped on at the last moment :)

    Agreed. And that my friends is the type of magic that cannot be broken!

    Hi again, wwfpooh!

    I admire Jim and company for having such a perfect, moving ending, even though it wasn't going to get the larger recognition it deserved, at least at the time.

    I just sent an email over to Insight Editions, just to see if there were any updates (plus I was bored today). I'll let you guys know what I hear as soon as I get a response. Hopefully it's still a delay nad not a cancelation.

    Well, if anything, it'd be released around the same time that the movie premieres.

    Okay, now brace yourselves people. I just got a reply back from "Insight Editions", and they said that the book has officially been CANCELED. Like all of you, I am just as angry. My suggestion is that we maybe petition the publishers, since so many people are petitioning HIT about releasing season four on DVD.

    Just great. First no seperate season four and now this!

    oh great! what else could go wrong?

    We still have "Street Gang" scheduled for Dec. 26, and I think "Sesame Street: A Celebration of Forty Years" is still in the works for 2009, although that's kind of a long way off. I think the blame mostly goes to HIT. We may have to contact them and see if we can square this out.

    good point! I can't wait for that stuff, but now it wouldn't surprise me if they got canceled as well!
