Fraggle Rock: Season One, Vol. 1 (dvd)

Although kindly old inventor Doc is unaware that a tiny civilization lives beneath the rock behind his house, Doc’s dog, Sprocket, is all too cognizant of this phenomenon. Thus is established the premise of the live-action puppet show Fraggle Rock, which launched its first season’s worth of 24 half-hour episodes in January of 1983. The stories deal with the colorful, carefree Fraggles, the hardworking and industrious Doozers, and the gross, dictatorial Gorgs. The first episode, adroitly titled “Beginnings,” finds head Fraggle Travelling Matt venturing out of Fraggle Rock and into “Outer Space” (aka the real world), sending postcards of the various wonders he’s witnessed to his nephew, Gobo. In later episodes, Wembley Fraggle’s willingness to be agreeable to everyone he meets plays right into the hands of the Gorgs; the Doozers are frustrated by the Fraggles’ insistence upon eating their construction jobs; Gobo and Red Fraggle go on a treasure hunt; Boober Fraggle gets his feelings hurt once too often; the Fraggles’ precious radish supply runs out; and Mokey’s efforts to one-up the Gorgs culminate in her funeral – even though she’s very much alive~Hal Erickson
