EDITORIAL: A Look at “Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series” set on Blu-ray

So, I have to admit growing up in the eighties and absolutely loving all things that the late Jim Henson created. Henson’s creations meant the world to me both as a child and even still do to me as an adult. Be it the “Muppets” and those shows and films, or be it the films he worked on like “The Dark Crystal” (1982) or “Labyrinth” (1986), they all entertained me – and still continue to. One of my favorites growing up as a kid, that I haven’t had the time to revisit until just this week, was the show “Fraggle Rock” that ran from 1983 through 1987 – for a total of five seasons.

That show just came out this week in a “35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition” booklet set as Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series on Blu-ray Disc, via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. I’ve been watching this and plan on reviewing it in the near future, but I have other things planned before, so I figured I’d give you a little glimpse at the packaging and offer up some early screenshots from the first few episodes. Below, after the break, you can find the photographs of packaging and some early screenshots.
