There’s been a lot going on in the news over the last few weeks, and unfortunately our news writers are all on strike. So here’s a brief catch-up on the highlights:
The Muppet Show: Season 3 has been announced for a May 20, 2008 release. All 24 episodes are there, and they’ll hopefully be edit-free. Fozzie’s extreme closeup made the cover, and the special features include the new documentary, “The Making of the Muppets” and the old documentary, “Muppets on Puppets.”
Fraggle Rock: Season 4, also known as Seasons 4 and 5 (HBO split the final production season into two broadcast seasons) will be out on DVD this fall. Not much more information than that has been added, but we’re all that much closer to owning all documented footage of Fraggle spelunking.
And most recently, the Jim Henson Company has announced that they will be making the entire series of Fraggle Rock and Farscape available on iTunes. Episodes will cost $1.99 each, and the first seasons of each are already online.
So there you have it, lots of old Muppety stuff to watch and to watch out for.
