Storyline

Animated version of the popular Muppet series "Fraggle Rock"; Survived only one season on NBC's Saturday Morning line-up due to tough competition (Pee-Wee's Playhouse at the height of it's popularity) and because it just wasn't as good as it's live-action inspiration. As in the original, the Fraggles are a group of odd creatures that live underground with the workaholic Doozers, while trying to avoid the giant Gorge's and the people in the human world. Written by Statler Waldorf

Stick with the live action show.
7 February 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Not that I'm saying that this animated version of the smash hit show Fraggle Rock was bad, it just wasn't as good as its live action predecessor. It just amazes me why they would make an animated show after the live action show had at the time ended its run. Still, it was a good show, it just didn't come close to the live action show. It became a casulty of the 1987-1988 Saturday morning schedule in which numerous new shows were out of the picture after one season.
