Fragglerockinterview

Steve Whitmire, Dave Goelz, and Karen Prell discuss the making of Fraggle Rock.

All new interviews with Fraggle Rock creators and puppeteers were recorded in March 2005 for the Fraggle Rock: Complete First Season DVD release. Independent interviews and group panel-like discussions with series creatives were featured, as well as "never-before-seen" footage, concept art, and production pictures. The footage included the Muppeteer's mock auditions with the early characters (Steve Whitmire as Gobo and Jerry Nelson as Wembley; Karen Prell as Mokey and Kathy Mullen as Red). The featurettes include over 100 minutes of new material.
