Subject: Fraggle Rock

Written By: greenjello74 on 08/08/08 at 8:50 pm

My kids loved this show (I did too). My hubby used to call my car the all knowing all seeing trash heap.
Gobo and his banana shirt was my fav.

I loved the Doozers and felt so sorry for them when the Fraggles ate their constructions.

I have the theme song (w/ picture sleeve) on 45.  I grew up watching Fraggle Rock, both puppet version and the cartoon series

"Dance your cares away.  Worry for another day.  Let the music play, down at Fraggle Rock"

I LOVED Fraggle Rock. I did not grow up on it nor did I have kids who watched it. I watched it as an adult because I LOVED it. lol I always loved Sprocket.

My nickname for a while was Fraggle because of my hair style at the time!

I enjoyed "Fraggle Rock" as a child, as well. The Fraggles were so cute and colourful. They seemed so cosy, living in the tunnels of their underground rock. I thought the Doozers were cute, too.

Now robby, you should remember that the Doozers didn't mind the Fraggles eating their towers at all. We saw in one episode, Mokey convinced them to stop, and all to soon the Doozers ran out of space to build in!
I always felt sorry for Junior Gorg. After all, since his parents were the self-proclaimed "King & Queen of the Universe", he got stuck doing all the work! I truly believe most of the time, he only tried to capture the Fraggles so he'd have someone to talk to.
Boober and Red were the funniest of them(especially when Boober let his alter-ego Sidebottom loose!) But Jello, I hate to break it to you, but Gobo never wore banana tree shirts, that was Wembley! Who else remembers some Fraggle stuff?

Your Pal,
Doc

Whoops - well in my defence it has been over 20 years. ;D

Just remembered the postcards bit from Uncle Whatshisname. I used to love seeing him bob about around the world with all the humans.

I used to love Fraggle Rock when I was little but, for some unknown reason (and a rare thing for me indeed), it doesn't hold the same appeal as an adult.

However, cynical Boober was my favourite.  :)

My daughter loved Red.. we even gave her one for Christmas when she was two years old. It was 15.00 a lot for a toy back in 84, but she had it forever.

True - it's one of those ones I can't quite get into as an adult. Not sure why. Perhaps it's the whole puppet thing or maybe I just didn't love it as much even as a kid... despite tuning in most weeks.  ;D

It is high time that Fraggle Rock was repeated on television, so far it not been shown on the lesser cable stations.

It is out on DVD here in the states. My daughter recently bought it at Target for her son.

Yes, Fraggle Rock is available on DVD over here, but watching on television is the cheaper version.

You have no idea what you missed!
Ergo, even reading all of Traveling Matt's postcards might not be enough to catch you up, you'll probably have to go see Marjorie, the all-knowing... Trash Heap! (Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!)

I loved Marjorie my kids still refer to me sometimes as the all knowing all seeing trash heap. My ex husband used that to describe my car too.

Hey guys :)  I'm new here, but I have a Fraggle Fan Site so I wanted to share that with anybody looking for Fraggle Rock information.  Also, I saw a thread asking if there was an episode where the Fraggles met the muppets, and they did in the Muppet Family Christmas.  They were living in the basement of Fozzie's Grannies house and Kermit and his nephew found them.
