Storyline

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 Kathy Li

Trivia

The Gorgs required two performers each: an actor to perform in the costume, and a puppeteer to do the voice and operate the face by radio controls. Previously, full-body Muppet characters (e.g., Big Bird) required the performer to operate the head with one hand, leaving the character with only one functional arm. Operating the face from outside allowed for a more expressive performance from the characters. Furthermore, video cameras installed inside the eyes allowed the performer to see from the Gorg's point of view. See more »

A Great Show Lives on in the Next Generation
7 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching this as a kid with my family. I loved it. It showed so many different types of creatures (Fraggles, Doozers, the Trash Heap...etc) that all made up one world. Everyone lived in relative peace with one another (with a few exceptions.) It showed our world from a different perspective and taught me (remember I was watching this at a young age) different things about the world that I may not have noticed.

Leave it to Jim Henson and crew to come up with this. It seems that everything that he touches is great. Now, I have a young son, and thanks to an old video store that I found tapes of the series that I have bought for him. He loves to watch these shows as much as I did, and I hope that he learns as much from them as I did.
