    And they're all there! All the puppets are back! BOOBER IS BACK!!!!

    Here's the must see, behind-the-scenes video with Ben Folds Five, Red Fraggle (Karen Prell) and more...

    I have been sooooooo depressed lately. Was beginning to question my sanity.

    And that's all gone now. I am content. I want to cry, but instead of crying because of such darkness in my soul, the Ditzies have lit up my life, and I can smile again.

    Thank you, Fraggle Five (and Uncle Matt, of course). That was just what I needed to shake the funk out of my heart. :D <3

    My head has just exploded from awesomeness. And you know what? I actually heard about this at Dragon*Con. Someone saw me with Janken and said the Fraggles were coming back, he had just worked on a music video to be released in a few weeks. I said that would be great, but I'd believe it when I saw it. And now I see it. Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo!

    A few random reactions:
    I love Money playing the piano and headbanging.
    Boober has a Mokey tail.
    Uncle Matt acquired an accent. Not surprising, I guess, considering his travels.
    In the scene where she's sitting, Red looks pregnant.
    Hmm... there should be more thoughts here. Guess I'll just have to rewatch the video!

    BTW... another person at D*C said that the Fraggles were getting a new TV show, they'd worked on it. As before, I said that would be great, but until I saw hard proof I wouldn't get my hopes up. Since this one came true, well, I won't celebrate just yet, but I will allow myself a glimmer of hope.

    These are my initial reactions.

    Further reactions include: Are these the Fraggle-Actors from the Fraggle's-Look-For-Jobs, or the Real Fraggles from Fraggle Rock? And/or are they the exact same? Oh boy...this could be such a good year for Fraggles!

    Any word on who the Muppet performers are?

    Yeah Beauregard I know so far the Fraggle rock art contest is over and we just got a new Fraggle music video.
    What else will be happening for Fraggle Rock's 30 years celebration?

    Wow! Wow! I can't believe this. New Fraggle stuff! Awesome!

    The puppets looked great and it was so funny to see them jumping around and headbanging. Two little things I loved: Wembley sitting at the drums and when Boober pulled out his washboard. Incredible!

    (Also glad to see Ben Folds Five still sounds like Ben Folds Five. His solo work got a little too self-indulgent, so maybe the band can keep him tethered down.)

    The Fraggles are back baby! I'm glad that the Fraggle Five puppets and the Traveling Matt puppet have been rebuilt and that this video was done to promote the 30th anniversary of the show. It's awesome that the Fraggles have performed with a music group, it seems like a Muppet tradition. I still wonder who will take on Gobo, most likely Matt Vogel and who will take over Mokey. Steve, Dave and Karen will still have Wembley, Boober and Red.

    I'm not familiar with the Ben Folds Five, but it's a good song overall. I'm looking forward to see the Fraggles more and more. :smirk::dreamy::coy::sigh::excited:

    Well, Dave and Karen were certainly there. I'm pretty sure that is Steve doing Wembley (or someone who sure knows how to shimmy in the same fashion.)

    Not sure about the others. I didn't feel like that was Kathy doing Mokey, but I'm not an expert on that kind of thing.
