Jim Henson’s classic mid 1980’s muppet series “Fraggle Rock” is coming to the big screen reports the trades.

Henson’s company has hired executive producer Ahmet Zappa (“The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless”) to write a treatment for the film which will be a full-length live-action musical fantasy starring the underground dwellers who venture out into the human world.

Henson Co. co-topper Lisa Henson is producing, whilst Brian Henson will exec produce. The original show ran for 96 episodes over five seasons.

Cool! Wow! Here’s one I never saw them making but should have because it would instantly have old fans and a whole bunch of new fans going to see the movie. I don’t remember the tv show, I rememeber there being a cartoon Fraggle Rock that I used to watch. Though upon looking for any signs that I am not crazy and a cartoon version of Fraggle Rock really existed, I can’t seem to find any of them…oh well.

  1. No cartoon that I know of…and we never had HBO while growing up, so I missed out on this, mostly.

    Will be interesting to see, though, especially with Ahmet Zappa at the helm.

  2. yeah, I never saw the muppet show, I saw a cartoon, but no one ever heard of it. I don’t think it was a cartoon that was a stand alone cartoon, I think it was with something else. Like Alf the cartoon or something like that. I also think it was on NBC saturday mornings, along with Captain N the Game Master, please tell me you saw that cartoon…
