FRAGGLE ROCK Complete Series Collection On DVD
From a fun-loving group of furry subterranean creatures came millions of fans, 100 original songs, 96 total episodes, four seasons... and one FRAGGLE ROCK Complete Series Collection from Lionsgate and HIT Ent. Dance your cares away with the new, fully loaded collectible set of the entire award-winning series, including Season 4 available for the first-time ever on DVD. The Complete Series Collection is sure to be a fan favorite with more than 47 hours of content on 20 discs, including two hours of never-before-seen bonus features and an original FRAGGLE ROCK illustration poster -- all presented together in custom premium, collectible rock packaging.
The Jim Henson Company's children's television series, FRAGGLE ROCK, ran four seasons (96 episodes) from 1983 to 1987 on HBO. Starring a diverse and quirky group of cave-dwelling creatures, the world of FRAGGLE ROCK is a unique place where three different, yet surprisingly similar communities learn to live and work in harmony.
The Fraggles love to sing and dance, work just thirty minutes a week and spend most of their days dancing their cares away. They are joined by their industrious neighbors, the Doozers, tiny green workers that build elaborate structures the Fraggles find irresistibly tasty; and the Gorgs, giant creatures who live in the garden above FRAGGLE ROCK guarding their cherished radish patch.
Through the fun of the Fraggle five -- level-headed, practical Gobo; spiritual, artistic Mokey; exuberant, athletic Red; nervous, indecisive Wembley; worrisome Boober -- and the unique mix of music, from folk, blues and gospel to country and rock, the series entertains and encourages an understanding and embracing of diversity.
Never-before released episodes from season four included in the FRAGGLE ROCK Complete Series Collection are "Sprocket's Big Adventure," "Wembley's Wonderful Whoopie Water," "Sidebottom Blues," "Uncle Matt's Discovery," "Junior Faces the Music," "A Tune For Two," The Perfect Blue Rollie," "A Brush With Jealousy," "Wembley's Flight," "Red's Blue Dragon," "Wonder Mountain," "Space Frog Follies" and "Boober Gorg."

THE CHRISTMAS TOY On DVD
This holiday season Jim Henson's award winning THE CHRISTMAS TOY movie will be available for the first time ever on DVD from Lionsgate and Hit Ent. This charming tale about toys that come to life on Christmas Eve received the 1987 Golden Hugo Award for Children's Programming at the Chicago International Film Festival and was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Children's Program. Part of the Jim Henson's Christmas Classics line, THE CHRISTMAS TOY is a live action story featuring a cast of loveable puppets from Jim Henson and original songs by Jeff Moss.
It's Christmas Eve in the Jones' household and all the toys in the playroom magically come alive, anticipating the arrival of new toys. But they must be very careful. If anyone finds them "alive" they will be frozen forever. Balthazar, the wise old bear, gives his annual Yuletide speech imparting the importance of opening their hearts to the newcomers, but Rugby the tiger will have none of it.
Having been a Christmas gift the year before, it has been all about him and he has no interest in losing his position as favorite toy. Despite the danger, Rugby sets out to join the presents under the tree downstairs to become Toy #1 all over again. During the harrowing adventure Rugby accidentally lets Meteora, Queen of the Asteroids, loose. Apple the doll, Mew the cat toy and the other toys rally together to return Meteora to her rightful package and help Rugby safely get back to the playroom before all are found and frozen.
