series: (1983-1987; 96 x 30' episodes)
Premiering in January 1983, this wonderfully inventive program was designed to entertain while encouraging an understanding and embracing of diversity. From a fun-loving group of furry subterranean creatures came 96 total episodes, 100 original songs and millions of fans from around the world. Through the fun adventures of the Fraggle gang - Red, Gobo, Wembley, Boober, Mokey and Uncle Traveling Matt - the show captured the hearts of children and adults alike while featuring a unique mix of music that included a number of genres, from folk, blues and gospel to country and rock. The show was seen in 98 countries and secured several prestigious awards, including three Cable ACE Awards and five International Emmys.
Premiering as one of HBO's first original series, "Fraggle Rock" was created as a way to show the world how to live in peace. Within the show are three different communities: the home of Doc, an inventor, and his dog, Sprocket; the world of the upbeat Fraggles, who share the caves of Fraggle Rock beneath Doc's house with their small neighbors, the Doozers; and the Gorgs, gigantic creatures who inhabit Gorg's Garden. Through these different communities "Fraggle Rock" shows how we can all work together towards common goals.
In 2005, an online petition was signed by over 30,000 fans to get Fraggle Rock back into their homes. HIT Entertainment responded with the release of the first three seasons released in special collectors' editions. Friends of "Fraggle Rock" can also see their favorite Fraggles on T-shirts and as plush toys.
Additionally, The Jim Henson Company is also actively in development on a Fraggle Rock feature film.
