Big Bird is sent to live far from Sesame Street by a pesky social worker. Unhappy, Big Bird runs away from his foster home, prompting the rest of the Sesame Street gang to go on a cross-country journey to find him.
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
The names "Gobo" and "Traveling Mat" are film-industry in-jokes. Gobos are used to control the shape of light emitted from a source and traveling mattes are used to combine two or more image elements into one final image. See more »

This show ruled!! I watched when I was a little kid when it used to air on HBO, then I watched the reruns of the show when it aired on the Disney channel a few years back. This show was really cool since it had an assortment of strange characters like the Fraggles, the Doozers, and the Fraggle capturing Gorgs. It was also good for it's morals as well. Fraggle Rock like many classic children's shows of its time did not talk down to kids nor underestimate their intelligence for that matter. I my honest opinion, they should bring this back to T.V.
By the way, Wembley, and Boober Fraggle Rule!
