    The Xmas Toy is coming to DVD in the UK on Oct 11th. play.com has it for only £4.99

    Also, finally, Fraggle Rock Season One will be released on Oct 18th, hopefully it will have different art work than other releases, it does say that it comes with a replica note book just like the US release!

    Very strange saying 4 DVDs as it should be 5 discs:search::concern:

    I thought that too Danny, maybe there are no bonus features?
    Or maybe its just an error!

    Hensons Place has recently been passed for release here too.

    Great! I will wait to see what the UK print will be like - hope it will have the special feature(s).

    Does anyone know if the UK release of Fraggle Rock will be the american version or the UK version with Fulton Mackay?

    My Guess is that it will be a direct copy of the US version as many of the UK episodes are missing.

    Lets hope Im wrong, but I doubt it.

    I hope they at least use different art work, but again, I doubt it!

    Also, Henson Place is going to be on itunes UK this month too.

    As far as I recall, the vast majority of UK episodes cannot be located. Whether this means they've been stored incorrectly or accidently wiped I'm not sure. I think only 12 remain, all of which were released by HIT a few years back.
    Unless all the other eps have been relocated, I expect the upcoming DVD set to be the US versions.

    They got lost/destroyed when the TV company moved or was taken over?

    They can borrow my old RCA video tapes vol 1 - 12 with 20 UK episodes on them to transfer to DVD if they want!

    Here's an old thread that covered the subject of the missing tapes:

    No notebook in my copy, which I bought today.

    Not sure which web site I read that on?

    What is the packaging like on this? Not bought it myself yet, I already have the season 1 DVD set from the USA, Spain, and again in the complete box set, do I really need a forth copy, as much as I want to support sales in the UK, I just dont know.

    The four discs are held ( very tightly, I might add ) in an attractive fold-out package contained within a slipcase. Cover art seems to be pretty much identical to the US set, aside from the addition of the British & Irish certs and the words '4 Disc DVD' to the right of the Doozers. The panels of the fold-out packaging feature some very nice pics of the characters, with the four discs themselves pictured with Red, Boober, Gobo and Wembley. That's pretty much all there is to it. There's no booklet or list of episodes printed anywhere.
