Your favorite Jim Henson show will be back in HD
The Jim Henson program, starring a cast of puppets known as Fraggles, Doozers and Gorgs, is returning to the network and its streaming services 33 years after it premiered. All 96 episodes will run at the end of the year on the network, now shown in high definition.
The cave-dwelling, singing and dancing creatures have appeared in 98 countries and run on several other U.S. networks in the last three decades.
“In remastering the series,” the Jim Henson Co. wrote in a press release, “illuminate has created a contemporary look for the series with meticulous attention paid to every detail—sharpening the images, cleaning up the contrast, increasing the vibrancy of the colors and re-formatting for wide-screen—all under the careful supervision of Brian Henson.”
