    Well I want to know how this is an effective test of the market. One store selling a stripped down DVD. Then they tell us that soon there will be the same DVD offered, only with more stuff. So, if sales are poor on the first DVD, and good on the next, does that mean all DVDs will have extra cool stuff? What if everyone buying now decides they aren't stupid enough to buy the same DVD twice and sales are poor on the second DVD. Will all future DVDs be stripped down? I just don't get it.

    so happy

    About going to the nearest wal-mart and buying the dvd's..the one close to my home the guy had no idea what I was talking about..so I was disappointed for a few hours..Then I went to my aunt's who lives about thirty minutes away to help with putting together a computer desk..since she did not have a phone cord that was needed to have the desk where she wanted it, we took a trip to wal-mart and there they were my mom bought two..one for me and one for her...I was skipping the rest of the night!!I went home and watched the first two...which I had never seen the first or the second. I'm not sure if the third one has problems because I have not been able to watch it yet I will before I go to work or after. I'm soooooo happy to see the beloved fraggles again because I have been watching the same 5 episodes over and over because those were the only ones my mom recorded since I was born two years after it came out. Anyways for those who haven't bought them yet invest the ten dollars..I think it's worth it..in fact if the next one is just as cheap..I'll buy the next one if it means that the entire series will be produced. Call me foolish but at least I will see more extra stuff.. :)

    Seemed to be a good test to me. I found my copy yesterday and LOVED it. Ok, so they merge two episodes. My kids never noticed. I mean, HiT is a childrens distributor, right?

    I never saw the first episode as I did not have HBO as a kid/teen. I was able to see an episode from time to time at a friends house and really loved it. Getting access to this DVD has turned out to be a lot of fun for my family! And the flier 'More Fraggle Rock Coming To Video/DVD Fall 2004' inside the DVD case is exciting as well.

    Sure bonus features would have been nice. And just having access to the first episodes will hold my family for a while. I believe that with the proper feedback, future editions of Fraggle Rock on DVD will be wonderful.

    Now back to 'Outer Space'...

    personally, my qualms about WalMart are basically their gender biased employee payment and their elimination of Mom and pop stores, but I guess that's just me.

    So... do they even say what the "extras" are, or did they even hint at it?

    It may sway my decision to purchase this DVD... especially if they can fix the sound gaffe and the Merging of the first 2 episodes... but somehow I feel the extras will be corny.....

    But then agian, Hit pretty much deals mainly with a lame Dinosaur show that has become old hat by now... he's about 8 years behind the height of his popularity....his peak has been reached. So basically, that's why I think the DVD's will be like this.

    But It's great to see it in some form on DVD... specially since us kids with parents too poor to buy cable had to make due with the cartoon series....

    I am currently in Kentucky for a month, and I am just dying to get this DVD! I checked a Wal Mart yesterday, and the lady checked a piece of paper that said "Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock" July 27! I can't wait! After the lady told me when it comes out, a customer behind me said "Oh, I love Fraggle Rock!".

    I am counting the days!

    The Closed Captioning has the first line of the theme song wrong. It's "Dance Your Cares Away" Not "Cast Your Cares Away"!

    I don't think I'll get this DVD except on sale, but I'm glad it's out there. I know a lot of people have wanted it for a long time.

    At least there is closed captioning, most of the Muppet DVDs don't have it. I think that is really great that it does have closed captions. :excited:
