Jim Henson’s iconic TV series Fraggle Rock is returning to HBO in HD.
HBO was the original home of the series when it premiered in 1983, and the digitally remastered version will return at the end year on the internet TV network, the Jim Henson Company said today.
Fraggle Rock stars a cast of puppet creatures called Fraggles, quirky cave-dwellers who live in an underground world alongside their industrious green neighbors, the Doozers, and a family of enormous Gorgs. The series follows the fun adventures of the furry subterranean creatures and features a unique mix of music from all genres including folk, blues, gospel, country and rock, all while embracing themes of friendship, tolerance, diversity, and caring for the planet.
The 96-episode series has been seen in over 98 countries and honored with several prestigious awards, including three Cable ACE Awards and five International Emmy Awards.
