    Got my DVD set today at BestBuy for just over $30 bucks including tax. All I can say so far is Wow!! I've only watched a portion of the first disc and a little of the new interviews. Great stuff. :excited:

    Could anyone tell me how the interviews were... I'd like to find out as much as possible, cuz I dont' think I'm gonna get it, since I"m saving up. I've seen all the episodes, and I just wanna know what all the people talked about in the new interviews. Thanks! :smirk:

    Have to say after watching Fraggle Rock on old beat up tapes since I was 5 this is a treat. It's so clear, I'm glad they fixed it up some. Love the box set, love the bonus features, it's increadable. I hope they get season two out soon. The only really thing that bugged me was no subtitles. But other than that, love it. Does anyone know why Wal-mart is not carring this? I had to travel over thirty miles to our local Best buy, and I'm glad I got there when I did because like the Muppet Show it was the last one they had.

    I picked up a copy at Target for about $34.00. I haven't had time to watch it yet, as I just finally finished Muppet Show! But I am super excited so far and I think the special features look great. In fact, I may watch those first!

    I didn't see it at Meijer the other day, either. Of course, they didn't have the new DVDs out till like mid-day, they had been short on the midnight shift.

    ive got good news and bad news.
    the bad news is that i havent bought this set yet, although ive been waiting for it forever.
    the good news is that i didnt get it yet because it was completely sold out at the media play and wal mart in my area!
    looks like theyre selling well, which means we can look forward to subsequent seasons being released in the future.

    Got it yesterday at Wal-Wart for 36$ and some odd random number of cents.




    I absolutely LOVE it. The whole replica notebook? Yeah, I didn't know it was going to be an actual notebook, I thought it was some kind of bonus feature on the bonus disk. Imagine my surprise! I thought that on it's own was amazing. So far I have watched just the bonus features, and the opening theme of the first episode. Since I have the first 3 single-disk releases, I've seen the first 3 episodes, plus Catch a Tail by the Tiger.

    First thing I watched was the documentary, Down at Fraggle Rock. It was so cool! Mainly because it was in the 80's, and you can see everyone actually working on their puppets. That made me SO happy. As I LOVE all things muppets, I know pretty much squat about puppeteering and the whole process involved. So I found it absolutely fascinating. And also, I had never seen a picture of Richard Hunt before. So I got to see him actually talk to the camera and talk in his normal voice and Junior Gorg's voice. That was particularily cool and made me smile. :)

    I then watched all of the new interviews. All in a row, just now, actually. What can I say, I am SO impressed! I liked hearing from the writers, producers, etc. to see what making the show was actually like, the creative process involved, etc. So fascinating. And then being able to see new interviews with the puppeteers (Who all look and sound really good, by the way!) was just amazing. It's so interesting to be able to see the puppeteers behind my favourite characters, and learn how their character came about, how it's a part of them. It was just amazing.

    And I haven't even watched one of the episodes yet! I've only seen 5 episodes (that I can remember) on this set, so I can't wait to start watching them!

    Oh, and neat box. It confused me at first, though. But it's fun. And I like how the menus are basic, but themed for each disk, so that was really cool.

    So, a million stars out of five. :smirk: :excited: We need more fraggle smilies!

    i ordered mine from bestbuy.com...it arrived today...minus the bonus cd-rom...guess they didn't give them online :-(

    The bonus cd-rom has wallpapers, screensavers, desktop themes, and a small game. It's a neat addition. (I hope I didn't forget anything) I recieved my copy tuesday. I love it. The interviews are really great. So far I'm enjoying every moment of Fraggely fun. Also, I don't know if any other places are, but my local Best Buy had the set on sale. So I got it for $29.99 instead of $37.99. (Which my wallet enjoyed.) Now if you'll excuse me I gotta go watch disk three. :)

    Well, my niece loved the music and dancing... but being about 2 is a little young to really get into the Fraggles.

    One thing I did learn though-- make a backup copy of the disc and leave the backup in the DVD player, to protect the original disc. Turns out my neice DOES know how to eject the tray in the DVD plater...

    I don't know if this is nationwide but here's the deal at my local Wal-Mart. They're only carrying "Do the things that Doozer's do". I was wondering why they only had that one. Anyone else have any insight on this??

    Same here. I was wondering if maybe Best Buy thought they had something exclusive but didn't.

    I was in a very grumpy mood yesterday when I came home to my Box Set on my kitchen table. Needless to say, my grumpiness dissipated and I was one happy Fraggle Fan. I jumped up and down for a while, screamed & squeaked a bit, then proceeded to watch all of the interviews and some episodes.

    It was so exciting to see the extra backstage shots we've never seen before and to see Michael Frith's beautiful sketches from the conferences. The topics for each of the interviews are all interesting and it's great to hear the stories told by them. I especially loved the one interview about the episode "Marooned." It is my favorite episode and a brilliant one at that. I was kind of hoping they would do that for more episodes.

    I loved seeing the audition footage, it's was pretty funny. Watching Kathy Mullen as Red & Karen Prell as Mokey felt wrong. I really love Karen as Red so it was kinda hard.

    The quality of the episodes is superb. I reccommend this set to anyone and everyone. The way I see it, the more people buy it, they can realize that this was a good investment and continue for the other three seasons. I understand waiting to save up, but don't miss out!

    I only have one complaint. I heard that Best Buy was going to be the only store selling the bonus CD-ROM w/the set so I pre-ordered it from there. I was pretty upset to find out that it wasn't there. I really can't afford to buy a whole nother set at the store to get the CD-ROM. So really, the complaint is to Best Buy, not HIT. I have nothing but thanks and praise to HIT for putting the first season on DVD.

    So now go and get your own copy!
