First, the packaging is horrible. The binder like book that the dvd's are held in makes it very easy for them to fall out and come loose in the box. When first opened it, about a third of the discs were out of the sleeves.
Second is the Bonus material. there are some new on disc pieces that were not offered on the first three sets, but thats pretty much it. none of the extra little things that made the other sets fun (like the character art pages from season three). The only non-disc extra in the box is a poster sized concept art picture of "The fraggle rock universe".
And third, it even lacks the one sentence synopsis of the episodes that was included with the other season releases. It just lists the names of the episodes on the pages opposite the discs.
It seems that all the thought that went into making the first three season sets special went right out the door when they came up nwith the idea for this set. It's simply a plan to drain money out of fans, and i guess they got away with one here. I higly reccommend NOT BUYING THIS SET. rather wait and hope they release the fourth season by itself with some actual thought for the fans.
Hope this helps at least one person.

For anyone who purchased the previous Complete Series which was released in 2008, you know how horrible it was arranged and packaged. Most people who ordered the old version received it in shambles. The discs were scattered throughout the box and many people reported scratched or damaged discs.
The packaging for this new product is much better. Each season is packaged in its own rigid plastic case (same style as most DVDs come in). Each case has an individual cardboard sleeve, and all 4 seasons fit into a simple cardboard cover.
I purchased my copy off a store shelf (I didn't have it shipped). At the store, there were 3 copies on the shelf, and unfortunately, all three copies "rattled" when I tipped them over, which indicated to me that there were probably loose discs inside. I chose the copy which had the smallest "rattle" to it. When I opened the product, I found that Seasons 1 and 2 were packaged with a foam cushion which prevented them from moving around. Seasons 3 and 4 had no cushion, and 3 of these discs had come loose. There was no damage to any of the discs.
I found the packaging to be satisfactory, but if I needed to buy a 2nd copy, I would most likely purchase it from a store where I can "shake" the product before buying.
In regard to extra features, I personally will not rate this. I don't usually watch the extras, nor do I care about the table of contents and other inserts that come with these kinds of products. I was only sharing my experience with the packaging of the product. I hope this information is helpful to anyone who may be hesitant after the horrible quality of the 2008 product.
The first comment is correct: HIT Entertainment currently has no plans to release an individual box set of the fourth (and final) season of Fraggle Rock. Of all TV series to be released on DVD, this is the first to put out a complete series mega-set without finishing the season-by-season run.
Those of you (and there are MANY) who purchased the first three seasons since 2005 are stuck having to re-buy 75% of the series if you want to finish your collections.
If you want an individual Season 4 box set of Fraggle Rock, please let HIT know! Fan support (and consumer correspondence) is what convinced them to release season box sets in the first place. Your support CAN help change their minds.

HIT Entertainment no longer distributes Fraggle Rock for the Jim Henson Company. If you wish to see an individual Season 4, the best bet would now be to contact Henson directly. They welcome consumer comments on their Twitter account, which is probably the most efficient way to get in touch with them:

The packaging is terrible. Literally half the set of DVDs slipped out and were loose, so they were badly scratched during shipping. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Josh W.
