The Jim Henson Company’s beloved children’s television series, Fraggle Rock, ran four seasons (96 episodes) from 1983 to 1987 on HBO.
Starring a diverse and quirky group of cave-dwelling creatures, the world of Fraggle Rock is a unique place where three different, yet surprisingly similar communities learn to live and work in harmony.
The Fraggles love to sing and dance, work just thirty minutes a week and spend most of their days dancing their cares away. They are joined by their industrious neighbors, the Doozers, tiny green workers that build elaborate structures the Fraggles find irresistibly tasty; and the Gorgs, giant creatures who live in the garden above Fraggle Rock guarding their cherished radish patch.
Through the fun of the Fraggle five – level-headed, practical Gobo; spiritual, artistic Mokey; exuberant, athletic Red; nervous, indecisive Wembley; worrisome Boober – and the unique mix of music, from folk, blues and gospel to country and rock, the series entertains and encourages an understanding and embracing of diversity.
Never-before released episodes from season four included in the Fraggle Rock Complete Series Collection are “Sprocket’s Big Adventure,” “Wembley’s Wonderful Whoopie Water,” “Sidebottom Blues,” “Uncle Matt’s Discovery,” “Junior Faces the Music,” “A Tune For Two,” The Perfect Blue Rollie,” “A Brush With Jealousy,” “Wembley’s Flight,” “Red’s Blue Dragon,” “Wonder Mountain,” “Space Frog Follies” and “Boober Gorg.”
