Fraggle Rock to return to HBO (reruns)

Not really much info other than the episodes being remastered and 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.
HBO confirms to TVLine that the series will air on its broadcast channels and will be available for streaming via HBO Go and HBO Now, and that Fraggle Rock will return at the end of the year.

I grew up on the Fraggles and have been amazed they haven't been revived/reimagined/revisited/rebooted/reDozered yet. Still not ordering HBO.

A Game of Thrones/Fraggle Rock parody would be awesome though.

Being the father of a two year old I can tell you that there is, in fact, a Sesame Street/True Blood parody that they show after Sesame Street airs called True Mud. I can't imagine little kids have any idea that it's a parody but the look on the muppet's face when they roll out the mud cracks me up.


I loved Fraggle Rock when I was a kid. Still one of the catchiest theme songs of all time!

Yea, it's like, they sort of program it so that parents can enjoy it as well...

Better concept: Building Bad -- a rogue Doozer begins cooking up blue Doozer sticks and tragedy ensues.
