Down In Fraggle Rock!!!
I don't care who knows...I freaking love the show Fraggle Rock! Make fun of me if you like...I am proud of my Fraggle Rock fan status. It has been 20 years since I watched the show on HBO and I miss it!
I'm 35 now - yes, do the math I was 15, not 5, when I watched the show...and I still loved it!
The complete series (1983-1987) was released on DVD last month and I am asking for it for Christmas. Now you can experience the full adventures of Gobo, Mokey, Red, Wembley and Boober all on DVD whenever you'd like.
The Music of Fraggle Rock
Gotta Love The Fraggles
The show, created by Jim Henson, was about little creatures called Fraggles (among others) that lived in an underground world just below our known world. The connection between their world and ours (which they call "Outer Space") is a small hole in the wall of the workshop of a man by the name of Doc and his dog Sprocket.
The great songs are one of the many things I like about this series. The music was above par considering the simplified crap on most children's shows.
(At right are a couple of examples of the music of Fraggle Rock.)
I Will Get This...Oh Yes, I Will
If I do not get this series for Christmas, I will buy the dang thing myself! I have gone without the Fraggles for way too long and I cannot go any longer! I must have it, without delay. I might even go out before Christmas and buy it for myself.
Fraggle Rock was the first original series of HBO's.
The working title was "The Woozle Show."
Gobo and Travelling Matt (two characters of the show) are film industry inside jokes. They are words that describe techniques to super-impose images over a different background.
I just learned that a Fraggle Rock movie is in the works. Cool!!!
Also...I did not receive Fraggle Rock at Christmas. I guess I will have to fork out my own money for this box set. :-(
