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
Karen Prell, the voice of Red Fraggle, auditioned for and very much wanted the role of Mokey. Jim Henson called her up and decided to hire her, but for the role of Red. Prell was excited to be hired, but when she hung up the phone she thought to herself, "They want me to play RED?" 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!!
