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 »

User Reviews

Jim Henson genius.
26 March 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

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!!
