Fraggle Rock

clap clap

Dance your cares away (clap, clap), worries for another day. Let the music play (clap, clap) down at Fraggle Rock.

Okay, so to be honest, this was my sister’s favorite show and so of course I had to watch it because she was bigger and could kind of make sure I listened to her (violence is never the answer, kids). Apparently, it was completely shot/over/done by the time I was even born (it was a Canadian show made with Jim Henson and muppets), but it was syndicated in the U.S. on the Disney channel, so that explains that. Basically, it followed these Fraggle creatures in their cave-like world. They sing a lot. That’s really all I remembered, until I wiki’d it:

“Fraggles are humanoid creatures, about 18 inches tall, with fur in a wide variety of colors and a tail like a lion’s, with a tuft of fur on the end. They live in a network of caves called Fraggle Rock, populated by a variety of creatures, and seeming to connect to at least two different worlds in separate dimensions of time and space. Fraggles spend much of their carefree lives in play, exploring their worlds, and generally enjoying themselves. However, at the same time they maintain a complex culture and society, with each individual having rights and responsibilities. They have basic skill with tools and with crude machinery, and the concept of war is known to them (although wars between Fraggles are very rare). Fraggles live on a diet of vegetables, especially radishes. If individuals touch their heads together before falling asleep they can “share dreams.”

Five Fraggles are at the center of the series: Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober and Red. They form a tight-knit group of friends, and each has a distinct personality.” – Wikipedia

Interesting! How complex this show was! All I remember is fraggles and little green guys doing a lot of work. And the themesong, of course. One more time, ladies and gents:
