A band of Traveling Musicians comes to Fraggle Rock to present an ancient Fraggle tradition - the Medley. When Red gets carried away in her desire to participate and steals the Musicians' magic pipe,...
The Smurfs are little blue creatures that live in mushroom houses in a forest inhabited mainly by their own kind. The smurfs average daily routine is attempting to avoid Gargomel, an evil man who wants to kill our little blue friends.
Doc and his dog Sprocket have a hole in their wall, behind which live little furry creatures known as Fraggles in a place called Fraggle Rock. The Rock is also home to the Doozers (who are knee-high to a Fraggle) and the Gorgs (who are giants that think they rule the Rock). One gang of Fraggles (Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, and Red), under the guidance of the all-knowing Trash Heap (Marjorie), learn about each other and their neighbors and eventually befriend the Doozers, the Gorgs--and even Doc and Sprocket. Meanwhile, Gobo's Uncle Matt explores Outer Space (our world) and sends postcards to his nephew about the Silly Creatures (that's us). Written by
Originally, five different endings for the opening, with each of the main Fraggles saying "down at fraggle rock", were filmed and meant to alternate between episodes. However, the one with Boober was the only one consistently used. One with Wembly was included in the episode "The Terrible Tunnel", while one with Gobo was used in "The Finger of Light". See more »
Jim Henson has produced some of the finest family entertainment ever. 'The Muppets' and 'Sesame Street' are fine examples of this and so is 'Fraggle Rock'. Fraggle Rock is entertainment of the highest order. Packed with great characters and great music, this is one of the finest family shows ever made in America and perfect for children and adults alike unlike 'Barney and Friends' or 'Teletubbies' which are neither amusing or suitable for children in any way. But the 'Muppets and 'Fraggle Rock' are ideal entertainment for all ages. Come on then let's sing along!
Dance your cares away. Worries for another day. Let the music play. Down at Fraggle Rock!!
