    Fraggle Rock to the Big Screen!

    Here is the low down!

    The Jim Henson Co. has confirmed that it is in development on a feature-length movie featuring the Fraggles from the 1980s children’s puppet series Fraggle Rock. The treatment for the as yet untitled pic is being written by Ahmet Zappa, author of The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless and son of late alternative rock icon Frank Zappa. The junior Zappa will also exec produce the film with Brian Henson and Jason Lust while Lisa Henson handles producer duties.

    Like Henson’s upcoming Dark Crystal sequel, the movie will likely be made with a mx of puppetry and CG animation. The storyline takes Gobo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red on their first adventure outside of Fraggle Rock, where they interact with the strange alien beings known as humans.

    “Fraggle Rock has remained a favorite project at our company and has certainly continued to be loved by its many devoted fans, so we are thrilled to begin work on this project,” comments Lisa Henson, who serves as co-CEO of The Jim Henson Co. with brother Brian. “With its message of celebrating diversity and its ambitious goal of promoting world peace, now is the perfect time to embark on a new Fraggle adventure."

    Created by the late Jim Henson, Fraggle Rock debuted on HBO in 1983 and lasted five seasons, garnering multiple awards and a global following. The show reinforced the concepts of mutual respect and peace by showing cooperation and conflict resolution among the different inhabitants of the Rock—the Fraggles, the Doozers and the Gorgs. The first two seasons of the show has been selling well on DVD, proving that there is still a strong fan base for the franchise.

    Wow... there ya go... if you've heard of Fraggle Rock you are officially old enough for "kids" to think you are old. That's a good method of figuring out how old you really are... do you remember Fraggle Rock? Yes? OLD!

    I take back my earlier comments.. I've never heard of Fraggle Rock... what's Fraggle Rock? What's a Fraggle?

    I DON'T WANNA BE OLD!!!!

    Why????? The horror....
    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...
    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
