Fraggle Rock might well have been part of your childhood growing up. It was a series for children that tackled issues such as the planets interdependency which is becoming more and more acute with each passing year. The original series’ also covered topics such as death, war, religion, self-sacrifice and self-actualisation, all without resorting to “preachification” (a term from the series): that “Fraggle Rock” achieved all this whilst entertaining was nothing short of amazing.
Now Jim Henson’s fun-loving, musical Fraggles are back! Join Gobo, Red, Wembley, Mokey, Boober, and new Fraggle friends on hilarious, epic adventures about the magic that happens when we celebrate and care for our interconnected world.
