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 »

Quotes

Boober Fraggle: [the fraggles have found Sprocket's ball, which has rolled through the Fraggle hole] Ugh! It's a hideous round thing!

Alternate Versions

The Doc and Sprocket sequences in the show were localized for each production country. In Canada, USA, and Germany, Doc was an inventor. In the UK, he was a lighthouse keeper, and in France, a chef. Only twelve of the 96 sequences shot for the UK version are believed to survive, the rest having been junked with the demise of production company TVS. See more »

A show of my generation (those born 1973-79)
13 March 2001 | by tizzi22See all my reviews

I grew up on Muppets...I watched Sesame Street since before I can remember, my worst punishment and the only one that stands out in my mind is when my mother made me go to bed without watching the Muppet Show, and then, when I was four, Fraggle Rock came out. This of the three shows is the one that stands out in my mind. Right now the theme song is going through my head with the rocking guitar. We have Fraggle Rock marathons (thanks to the episodes being released on video). We used to play with the little Happy Meals toys of them and still have them. What a great show for my generation.
