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

Jim Henson spent many hours at the Robotorium, INC with Debbie the Roboteer learning to use the new Apple IIE desktop computer (her cousin programmed with the first RS232 interface ports) and interfaced with a Rhino XRII bored out airplane aluminum 6 to 8 axis robotic arm. Through experimentation they came up with a way to have one puppeteer use an actuated mitt controller arm to animate miniature puppets (the worm-like critters) or even choruses of different puppets through the use of the same robotic applications and programming. The mitt ran the motors on each axis of each of the puppets. The puppeteer put their arm into the mitt controller and went through the motions. See more »

Lord how I miss this show!
17 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I cannot believe that the Henson studios are not selling a DVD box collection of the Fraggles. This series was simply the most beautiful, artistic, and imaginative children's series of the '80's. Children's programming has suffered a serious setback ever since Jim Henson passed away.

Nowadays, instead of such films as Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal and television programs like Fraggle Rock, kids are forced to rely on the unimaginative blatherings and the artistic joke known as the Disney Corporation and Barney.

Where has the magic and art gone??? And since the magic and the splendor has receded into the mists, why can't they provide us the DVDs required to bring it back, even in just our own homes??

I just hope that this dream just comes true.
