The show returns to HBO and will be offered to international buyers.

Everybody's favourite puppets are returning to our screens in a remastered version of Fraggle Rock, giving us all some serious nostalgia.

The show created by Jim Henson first debuted on HBO in 1983 and will return to the network later this year, digitally remastered for a whole new generation of fans.

"Fraggle Rock stars a cast of puppet creatures called Fraggles, quirky cave-dwellers who live in an underground world alongside their industrious green neighbors, the Doozers, and a family of enormous Gorgs," The Jim Henson Company said in a statement.

The much-loved show "features a unique mix of music from all genres including folk, blues, gospel, country and rock, all while embracing themes of friendship, tolerance, diversity, and caring for the planet".

The oh, so catchy Fraggle Rock theme tune 'Down at Fraggle Rock', actually made it to number 33 on the British music charts during the height of its popularity.

Fraggle Rock was on air for 96 episodes, featuring 100 original songs and has been seen in more than 98 countries around the world.

Jim Henson, who passed away in 1990, was also the creator of The Muppets, with some of the beloved Fraggle Rock characters featuring in the Muppet Christmas films.

The decision to revive the show has been welcomed by fans with users taking to Facebook and Twitter to express their excitement about heading back 'Down to Fraggle Rock'.
