Insidery

Boom! especially, has acquired the comic making rights to a lot of our favorite stuff, like Adventure Time, The Muppet Show, and The Regular Show, and done very good work with them.

Ben Folds Five Goes To Fraggle Rock, Makes Us Really Happy

We don't usually go in for music videos here unless there is something really amazing that we strongly feel you need to see. Ben Folds Five doing what amounts to a very brief, musical episode of Jim Henson's classic Fraggle Rock for their latest video is precisely both of those things. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Oh, and make sure you stay all the way to the end. Just sayin'.

R.I.P Jerry Nelson, Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock Veteran

so long and thanks for all the fish

You might not recognize Jerry Nelson's name, but you're probably more familiar with Sesame Street's the Count, Amazing Mumford and Snuffalupagus, or Statler (half of the heckling duo of Statler and Waldorf), Floyd Pepper (the mustachioed guitar player in the Muppet Show house band), Lew Zealand (that guy who chucks fish), Gobo Fraggle, Robin the Frog, or maybe even Emmet Otter. Though he may never have had roles as iconic to the Muppets as some of his colleagues, his long, long history with the group touches almost everything they've ever done. He passed away yesterday after a long period of declining health, at the age of seventy-eight. And that's certainly a good enough reason to collect a few videos of his characters and share them below.

Fraggle Rock Ramping up for Another Try at a Movie

Cautiously Optimistic

If I am remembering my obscure entertainment stories correctly, one day Jim Henson sat down with his fellow writers and muppeteers and said something like "I want to make a show that brings about world peace," and after the rest of the room had stopped laughing and realized he wasn't joking, they created Fraggle Rock. In its five seasons it, more than any other Henson production to date, focused exclusively on exploring social issues like prejudice, care of the environment, spirituality, identity, conflict and tolerance. It was also a huge hit, airing internationally in Canada, the US, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, France and Germany. A Fraggle Rock movie has been in various states of preproduction since 2005. In 2008, the Weinstein Company entered into a deal to distribute it, which expired last year even as it was announced that the Scissor Sisters were down to write the show's music... without much else to show that a movie really was being made. But! New developments indicate that the adaptation might not be as dead as all that.
