Jarrod Fairclough – In news we’re reporting way later than we should be, it was announced last week that Fraggle Rock would be celebrating it’s 35th anniversary by bringing the entire series to Blu-Ray, and will be available 25th of September.  All 96 episodes will be there, meaning you can see Ma Gorg’s terrifying first season face in High Definition, giving you all sorts of nightmares.

Also available in the set will be Fraggle Rock: The Complete Animated Series, meaning literally the entire catalogue of Fraggle goodness is getting dropped.  The animated series will also be made available seperately on DVD.
