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

A magical world of the Fraggles captivates many
15 May 2000 | by Kron-3See all my reviews

I watched Fraggle Rock when I was a kid, I thought it to be a magical world and actually believed in a place called Fraggle Rock when I was 4. Recently when it was aired it brought back old memories. The fraggles with their all play and no work was something that I enjoyed as a kid. However I didn't like the Gorgs and I also hoped that humans would one day interact with Fraggles. There are four different creatures: Man- Doc and his dog Sprocket, Fraggles, Douzers and Gorgs. Doc does not know the existence of the Fraggles, Gorgs want to capture the Fraggles and Douzers are the uncomplaining, untiring workers. The Fraggles are mainly Gobo the hero, Wembley, Mookey, Red & Boober.

Great for young kids.
