    I watched it on Odyssey and that was edited out.:mad:

    I just watched Boober and the Glob and I noticed some edits. The part was cut out when Boober yells "Get me out of here!" after the Glob eats the first Doozer and burps. Then at the part after it eats Cotterpin Boober yells "Oh no! The Glob ate Cotterpin!" and faints, the part is cut out where Cotterpin says "well at least he remembered my name" Seems like not too bad of edits though. They seem to cut out the most pointless lines. Unlike some shows that are edited in reruns. :smirk:

    I just watched my first episode of Fraggle Rock today, thanks to the Hub (Let the Water Run) and it was awesome. I knew I would like the Hub when I saw Red and the show was pretty cool (just saw one where Boober has to save some Dooziers from "The Glob";)). It wasn't childish like some other shows these days. I will definitely watch more Fraggle Rock.:coy:

    I never saw Fraggle Rock until now. It's a great show. I love the characters and the songs are great.

    I just love that it is back on TV! I used to only watch it on Netflix, because I didn't have the DVDs, but now I have this which is awesome!

    I'm watching You Can't do that without a hat right now and I have to say, it's been years since Iv'e seen that episode and it feels really good to see it again. It's really funny seeing the early Fraggle designs. Gobo's look is way different and his personality and voice even seems a little off too. I really truly hope they keep Fraggle Rock on The Hub. It's been very frustrating the past 20 years or so, seeing the show be put on a channell for a few years, then get phased out, then taken off completley. I'm thinking with enough viewers it will stay on this time. And now that we have the internet around even more internet users then we had back in 1999-2001 when Fraggle Rock was being shown on Oddesey, and people are able to come on and learn more about the show and how great it was. I really think Fraggle Rock has a good chance of staying on the Hub. The Hub seems like a really good channell. I just hope it doesn't suffer the Oddesey syndrome and all the good stuff is pulled little by little. So my word to everyone is, watch the Hub! :smirk::excited::coy:

    Everything on The Hub will be cropped until their HD actually starts (it hasn't yet).

    I watched the Convincing John episode I noticed they edited out Red coming to the podium and then falling down due to a blindfold.

    I saw today's afternoon episode, Blanket of Snow Blanket of Woe" and they cut out the scene with Cotterpin and Wrench. I think they had little snowmobiles from what I remember when I saw the uncut version. Anyone else know what happened in that scene? I know i'm not imagining it.

    I was on the computer right now and one of the Fraggle Rock episodes started recording on the DVR. I then noticed that the opening theme was playing through the whole thing. The fraggles staying their names, gobo going through the tunnel to the gorgs garden.

    Wonder if all the others are going to start showing it through without edits? Or maybe this certain episode was shown like this on the Odyssey Channel. Does anyone know about this one?

    Edit: Sorry forgot to metion the name of the episode. "Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk?"

    "Don't Cry" is actually the shortest episode of the series (and the second one filmed). While others normally run 24:48 or so in unedited form, this one only runs 23:32, so it's possible no edits were necessary to make in that one.

    I was wondering about that. I remember seeing an ad for Fraggle Rock when I was younger and it was always the theme song so I thought the theme song was longer. Then I saw the episodes where they only did one verse and I thought that maybe it had just been a commercial. Does the opening depend on how the channel feels like showing it or the season during which that episode aired?

    No it's like Boober-Gorg said that since The Hub wants to shorten the shows just to show more commerical or more shows. That's the only reason the other epsodes are edited.

    a funny Fraggle Rock episode

    I remember Fraggle Rock, and it's a great show, I bought a DVD at Shoprite a long time ago of a few episodes. That is this was before HUB had debuted. The DVD does have the funny song that my sister and I used to sing called "See the Beetle Sitting On The Stone." It's more like a tounge twister. Anyway, here was the funny episode. Doc had finally gotten his new computer with a whopping 64 kilobites of ram a few mhz of power, and finally using the old large floppy 5 1/4 in diskettes. Not to mention is displays color graphics. Remember this was the 1980's, so pc tech was kind of new. Anyway Doc was showing the pc to his dog Sproket, and upon checking out the software, they discover a game of "Zombie Attack." Now for some reason, they had muted out the attack word as he said the pc game tittle. Must be a really old game.
    Anyway, I think that Red and Gobo argue in who's going to be in charge, and upon arguing in the Gorg's garden, they get trapped in a basket by The King Gorg. Now the funny part is when the Gobo pretends to be a magic genie, and after Junior gorg is told the story by his mom the queen, Junior believes the voice in the basket is a genie to grant his wishes. And Gobo warned Junior that if he lifts the basket, his ears will fall off. Not only that, despite Junior having a cold, they also warn him that if he sneezes one more time, he will die. Sure, after Junior faking his death, he suddenly jumps up and sings and dances as the fraggles sing their goodbyes to the so called dead gorg. A dead gorg walking around and dancing? Meanwhiele, after a game competition between Doc and Sprocket, Mr. Ned Shimofinny challenges Doc to the game and beats him with a whopping 1,800,000 points on Doc's Zombie Attack game.
    Funny that Sprocket goes into a death scene everytime he hears Shimmofinny's name. Anyway, I've noticed that the game's sound is the arcade game Galaxian, and upon dying and the game ends, you hear Pac-man's arcade whine as he dies. those flaming marshmallows are deadly. Brings back memories of video game competitions as a kid growing up.:smirk:

    I'm watching the challenge and I was wondering if anyone remembers it when it originally aired. Did they ever say what the Zombie game was? They kept silencing out the second word after zombie and the video game title was smuged out.

    I saw this Marooned episode edited today, they even cut out the part where :smirk:Gobo points to where the Spiral Cavern really is.

    I just watched the one about the Bunbarrow race. It's odd, they've been doing episodes in order for themost part but I found a website that says that that particular episode is later on in the series. It doesn't really matter much to me as it was a good episode, I just thought it was interesting.
