Fraggle Rock was aired in the Philippines on RPN 9 back in the 80’s. Is every Saturday at 7pm. Part of the Saturday fun machine primetime when Saturday Fun machine aired only in the mornings

_THIS_ video makes me really wish that HBO offered an entire channel that was _called & contained,_ 'HBO Classics'! Could you _imagine_ a channel of their great shows on screen again? They wouldn't have to produce them, just re-air them. Fraggle Rock, Tales from the Crypt, OZ, The Hitchhiker, Sex & the City, True Blood, The Wire, Entourage, Rome, Big Love, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bored to Death, Tenacious D, 1st & Ten, Encyclopedia Brown, Sopranos, Real Sex... _just to name a few._ 🤔 Imagine watching 'OZ' again on TV, Epic! 🤗🌷

How many takes did you need to say, "Hump of Honks" OR was it "Honk of Honks" without giggling?? I understand, you are a _professional & all._ BUT that's fantastically funny, I'm _still_ smiling. Omg, if you have outtakes _please..._ share them. 🤗🌷 Thank you for yet another wonderful video, you awesome human you!

I know it might not be the best Jim Henson creation, but how come you never used any tune from the Dark Crystal theme in the Jim Henson themed videos?

Even though I never actually watched Fraggle Rock as a kid, I find the theme song incredibly nostalgic, as one of my favorite VHS as a kid (although I can’t remember which one now) had an advertisement for what I think was a collection of episodes of Fraggle Rock on VHS. I used to love hearing that song when I would play this VHS, and I can remember being sad that I could never find the show on TV.

1991 Jim Henson company: Well boys we did it! War is no more! *94 years later* 80 year old me: And that's how world peace came to be and there was never another world war ever again! My grandson: So some puppet show single handedly brought world peace? Me: Yep! My grandson: This is what happens when you don't take your meds Peter

I didn't realize the Dark Crystal was done by the same guy that made the Muppets. That's incredible

Oh come on, Fraggle Rock ended war about as much as Captain Planet ended the reliance on oil. You think Red and Wembley getting along despite one being confident and the other nervous, was a thing to get the israelis and arabs embracing like some Naked Gun scenario made real? That any kids watching would remotely grasp that tenuous connection? That a show about 'everyone working together' being aired by a communist regime, already in it's senescence, was significant? Fraggle Rock was a cute cartoon with a trite moral tagged on. It might've been one of the first, even the first, but delivered the same thing as a hundred other kid's shows and to the same general effect.

I have never seen an episode of Fraggle Rock (although of course I love the Muppets as much as any other American kid) so why am I tearing up just watching this video? 😢😢 Excuse me while I go watch this whole show.

The Dark crystal is satanic. Jim Henson got into satanic Kabbalah in London with Crowley.

I grew up with Dark Crystal instead of Fraggle Rock, funny enough.
I think this needs some Wilkins Coffee.

Legit inquiry, you have this in script form, have you ever thought of uploading the closed captioning to youtube to help with people who are hard of hearing? I ask specifically because I'd like to share this series with my parents in the near future and don't trust the auto caption algorithm.

I didn't realize you did a Hensen series. I was just glad I got to see him on TV (TMNT moive) before he passed and they dedicated the first episode of Dinosaurs to him.

Fragile Rock was only aired on HBO. Those of us growing up without cable never got to watch it.

I’m so thankful for the dedicated research on making this video. I watched because I was bored, but it actually ended up introducing me to a series I soon fell in love with, which actually wasn’t even the topic of the video. When I saw some of the footage of the Dark Crystal I knew I had to check it out. The skeksis looked so awesome, and now, a movie, some comics, and several novels later, I am deeply invested in Jim Henson’s amazing world and eagerly awaiting the new Dark Crystal Netflix series. I probably never would have discovered the Dark Crystal had I not watched this. I guess life is funny like that sometimes.

You lost me with the weird intro, which seemed kind of like a commercial. I don't watch commercial IN-vid videos.
