Down in Fraggle Rock!

Via BoingBoing, some great news: Fraggle Rock is finally on DVD.

Most of y'all know that I am not a big Mary J. fan, but the thought spending a long, stoned evening with the HBO/Henson phantasmagoria that was Fraggle Rock sounds like a great vacation from the rigors of 2004. Yes, back in 1983, in withdrawal from the cancellation of the Muppet Show, it was easy to sink into the persistent weirdness of the Fraggle/Doozer/Gorg ecosystem. I think it would be pretty appealing to escape into that subterranean world once again. Gobo and Wembley, it will be great to see you again.

Anyone else up for it?

Oh yeah! Back in the day, I had this urge to squeeze a doozer. Wonder if they'll still seem as squeezable twenty years later.

Yes. I know it's weird.

I loved that show, except for the episode with the expedition to the spooky cave that ate people alive. That totally freaked me out.

"Dance your cares away, worries for another day, let the Fraggles play...down in Fraggle Rock!"
