Fraggle Rock

Fraggle Rock is a Canadian-British-American children's puppet television series about interconnected societies of Muppet creatures, created by Jim Henson. Fraggle Rock was co-produced by British television company Television South, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, U. S. pay Henson Associates. Unlike Sesame Street, created for a single market and adapted for international markets, Fraggle Rock was intended from the start to be an international production, the entire show was constructed with this in mind. Fraggle Rock debuted in 1983 as one of the first shows involving the collaboration of Henson International Television, the international arm of Jim Henson Productions; the co-production brought together British regional ITV franchise-holder Television South, CBC Television, U. S. pay-TV service Home Box Office and Henson Associates. Filming took place on a Toronto soundstage; the avant-garde poet bpNichol worked as one of the show's writers. In the early days of development, the script called the Fraggles "Woozles" pending the devising of a more suitable name.

Henson described the Fraggle Rock series as "a raucous musical romp. It's a lot of silliness. It's wonderful." The program proved accessible to audiences of all ages, used the fantasy creatures as an allegory to deal with serious issues such as prejudice, personal identity, the environment, social conflict. In 2009, as part of the Jim Henson Foundation's donation of puppets to the Center for Puppetry Arts, the Atlanta museum displayed many of the original puppet characters from Fraggle Rock in their exhibition Jim Henson: Wonders from his Workshop; the producers made the series with the intention of it airing in various forms internationally. That concept grew out of Jim Henson's experience adapting Sesame Street to the requirements of foreign markets; the human "wraparound" segments were produced separately in several countries, so the viewer could always relate to the world of the program. The series has appeared now in over languages; the head producer was Wesley James Tomlinson. The main version, filmed in Toronto, features an inventor named his dog Sprocket.

This wraparound was used in the U. S. Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, the Republic of Ireland, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. Dutch, Scandinavian and Eastern European shows were dubbed in their respective languages; the British inserts were filmed at the TVS Studios in Southampton, at the TVS Television Theatre in Gillingham and presents Fraggle Rock as a rock-filled sea island with a lighthouse. Exterior footage was that of St Anthony's Lighthouse located near Falmouth in Cornwall; the lighthouse keeper is a retired sailor who lives with his faithful dog Sprocket. In the third season following the death of Fulton Mackay, the role was played by John Gordon Sinclair as P. K. and in the fourth Simon O'Brien as B. J.. In 2014, 35 of these British wraparounds were still missing, believed wiped, although subsequent recoveries have reduced this number to one with 95 known to exist. Nickelodeon repeated it in the UK from 1993, as did Boomerang and Cartoonito in 2007; the episodes shown were the Canadian versions.

In the German version, the action takes place beneath the workshop of the inventor Doc. The series was named Die Fraggles with 85 of the 96 produced episodes being presented in German. In France, the wraparound segments take place in a bakery with its version of Doc who worked as a baker and a French alter-ego for Sprocket called Croquette. Doc inherited the home from his eccentric Uncle Georges. Thus, when the frame story required the use of a mechanical device, Doc would find yet another of Uncle Georges's machines. Plot-lines frequently involved the elegant but unseen Madame Pontaven. Not all of the 96 episodes were produced in French. There are four main intelligent anthropomorphic species in the Fraggle Rock environment: Fraggles, Doozers and Silly Creatures; the Fraggles and Doozers live in a system of natural caves called Fraggle Rock that are filled with all manner of creatures and features and which connect to at least two different areas: The Land of the Gorgs which they consider part of the "Universe".

"Outer Space" where the "silly creatures" live. One of the main themes of the series is that, although the three species depend on the other for their survival, they fail to communicate due to vast differences in their biology and culture; the series follows the adventures of five Fraggles with five personalities: pragmatic Gobo, artistic Mokey, indecisive Wembley, superstitious Boober, adventurous Red. Some of the character's names are film industry in-jokes. For example, Uncle Travelling Matt is a reference to the travelling matte technique used with blue screen to give the impression a character is somewhere they are not. Fraggles are small anthropomorphic creatures 22 inches tall, that come in a variety of colors and have fur tuft tipped tails. Fraggles live a carefree life, spending most of their ti
