Fragglerne title

Fragglerne is the Danish dub of Fraggle Rock. Only season 1 was dubbed in Danish, the other seasons have never been shown on Danish TV.

It was shown for the first time in 1984 on the channel DR1. Since then Fragglerne has been re-run a couple of times. There have been a few instances where there were only 18 episodes aired in a re-run cycle.

In 2004, a campaign was started by two radio hosts to get Fragglerne back on the air; it had been over 10 years since the last re-run of the show. The campaign was a success, as DR was amazed about how many people wanted to see Fragglerne again. The series was intended for re-broadcast during December 2004. A few months before the planned re-run the station discovered that they no longer had the rights to the Danish soundtrack. The rights for the soundtrack were owned by Johnny Reimar, so a race against time started to secure the rights before the planned re-run. During this time, it was confirmed that while 24 episodes were dubbed, 26 episodes (including two episodes from the second season) were purchased in 1984.
Fragglerne would be in re-run again in June/July 2006, October/November 2007.

12 episodes was released on DVD in 2005, and the last 12 in 2006. At the same time it became known that the distributer was trying to get the crew together, for the dubbing of additional episodes.[1] However these plans have been more or less abandoned, and they are instead working on getting Fragglene and Fragglarna released in Norway and Sweden, they still want to get the remaining episodes dubbed and are trying to get DR1 to split the costs.[2]

The Danish translation was made by Steen Springborg (who also voiced Gobo and others) and Biger Swan.
