Fraggle Rock Is Coming To HBO For You And Your Kid Within The Next Year
Back in May, it was announced that America’s sweetheart Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be starring in and producing the highly anticipated Fraggle Rock: The Movie (à la Jason Segel and The Muppets), which means you might be able to avoid the stress of a reboot potentially ruining your childhood. But you might not have to wait that long to introduce your kid to the wondrous world of Fraggle Rock. As Deadline reports, HBO has made it so you can soon be teaching your kid timeless lessons like “Tedium and drudgery are good for the soul.”
The Jim Henson Company reportedly told the entertainment site that the 96-episode series will be available to stream on HBO by the end of the year. Seeing that October is half over already, that’s a countdown that even your little Wembley can deal with. The best part is that it’s not a reboot, so you don’t have to worry about any weird Game Of Thrones-y sex scenes tainting your nostalgic experience — or scarring your kid for life.
That’s right, HBO plans to stream the 1983 show as is, only digitally remastered. That way you won’t have to explain to your kid why the show looks like crap, and can focus on more important things, like how to deal with Pebble Pox (hint: singing the blues helps). So go ahead and start preparing to cuddle up in a cave with your youngster and binge watch these silly creatures. By the time you end up inevitably loving or hating the movie, your kid will get why.
