Fraggle Rock in tha house

'Fraggle Rock' is to be turned into a movie.

The big screen version of the hit 80s children's TV show - created by Jim
Henson - is being developed Ahmet Zappa, the son of legendary rocker Frank

Lisa Henson, the co-CEO of the Jim Henson Company, said: "We recently had a
talk with Zappa about books and movies.

"During that conversation, I had an intuition that he might be a 'Fraggle
Rock' fan. He jumped out of his seat when he heard our idea of making
'Fraggle Rock' into a feature-length movie."

The film will have the lead puppet characters from the original show -
Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red - travelling from the Rock out into the human
world for the first time.

Lisa added: "The Fraggles didn't really get into the human world on the
series, so we plan to make the movie more about the intersection between the
Fraggles and the humans."

The award-winning TV show - which premiered in the US in 1983 - ran for five
series and, like it's predecessor 'The Muppet Show', it soon gathered a
strong fan base around the word.
