Fraggle Rock
DVD $129.99 / Vivendi Entertainment

This handsome box set celebrates the 30th anniversary of puppeteer Jim Henson’s wildly imaginative 1983-1987 television series teaching children cooperation, community, tolerance, empathy, environmental awareness and other values through the music, mayhem and other antics of the magical Fraggles and their felt-covered friends. The collection, which includes all the episodes of the show’s four seasons, also comes with behind-the-scenes interviews recently discovered in Henson’s archives, a keychain connected to a plush collectible Fraggle character, and a “Fraggle Rock” graphic novel with an activity guide to help today’s parents introduce kids to the wonders of this show from another era.
