I have this issue with sharing my 80s favorites with my kids. Wether it’s the fashion trends, toys, or cool dance moves (anyone remember the Kid and Play?), I want my young’uns to feel the awesome that is everything 80s. I also love when I can sit them down and let them watch some of my favorite shows, and have them stop bickering for a bit. Fraggle Rock came to the rescue this past weekend.
On August 22nd, Hulu launched Jim Henson Family TV on Hulu Kids, which features 10 series from the Jim Henson collection, including my favorite, “Fraggle Rock.” With Jim Henson Family TV, families can relive the magic of the fun-loving Fraggles, as well as other favorite Henson characters, while teaching children valuable lessons about the world with music, comedy and lots of fun.
All episodes of Fraggle Rock are available commercial-free on Hulu Plus. Five rolling, consecutive episodes of each show will be available on the free, ad-supported Hulu.com. I appreciated the rolling episodes in the midst of a sibling fight this past Sunday. The kids pulled out the laptop, bought up Hulu and danced their cares away with the beloved muppets. Now that we have the Jim Henson Family TV in our arsenal, I can default back to it on cagey days.
It’s amazing how we have such fond memories of shows and other pastimes during our childhood. It’s also amazing how, thanks to technology, those shows are now becoming favorites of our own children. And when you can share a memory with your kids for free, you are getting a great deal! I hope you’re able to enjoy Jim Henson Family TV and of course, Fraggle Rock!
