From pretending to be a pilot on a make-believe airplane to pretending to be a pirate in search of buried treasure, Barney's friends discover that creativity lets them soar in the wings of imagination!
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
I grew up on Muppets...I watched Sesame Street since before I can remember, my worst punishment and the only one that stands out in my mind is when my mother made me go to bed without watching the Muppet Show, and then, when I was four, Fraggle Rock came out. This of the three shows is the one that stands out in my mind. Right now the theme song is going through my head with the rocking guitar. We have Fraggle Rock marathons (thanks to the episodes being released on video). We used to play with the little Happy Meals toys of them and still have them. What a great show for my generation.
