"Live By The Rule of the Rock", the third Fraggle Rock DVD, will be released by HIT Entertainment this Tuesday (April 26, 2005). The DVD will feature four episodes of the Fraggle Rock (three standard play, and an unlockable one). The DVD will also feature a collection of bonus features. The entire DVD run-time is set 170-minutes (including bonus features), and will sell for around $14.99 (or less). There will also be a VHS version of "Live by the Rule of the Rock"; it will include only the first two episodes off the DVD version, and it will have none of the bonus features (its runtime is set at 50 minutes). The full details of the episodes and the bonus features for the DVD are listed below.
HIT has announced the fourth single-disc Fraggle DVD, called "Doin' Things That Doozers Do", will be released on September 6, 2005. HIT is also planning to release "Fraggle Rock - Season 1 Box Set" on DVD this fall as well; no exact date has been announced yet. Details on both of these products has not been released. So pick up this new discon Tuesday, it will hold you over until the fall when season 1 is released (and will also hold until the other seasons are released; whenever that will be).
