Unlike Sesame Street, which had been created for a single market and later adapted for international markets, Fraggle Rock was intended from the start to be an international production and 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 (Hi T Entertainment from 1989), the international arm of Jim Henson Productions.
The avant-garde poet bp Nichol 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.
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: One of the main themes of the series is that, although the three species depend on the other for their survival, they usually fail to communicate due to vast differences in their biology and culture.
The series mainly follows the adventures of five Fraggles with five personalities: pragmatic Gobo, idealistic Mokey, impetuous Red, indecisive Wembley and superstitious Boober.
Fraggles are considered pests by the Gorgs, as they often steal radishes from the garden. The Gorgs use the radishes to make anti-vanishing cream, without which they disappear headfirst.
In the North American, Spanish, French and German versions of Fraggle Rock, the connection between Fraggle Rock and Outer Space is a small hole in the wall of the workshop of an eccentric inventor named Doc and his (Muppet) dog Sprocket.
Filming took place on a Toronto sound-stage (and later at Elstree Studios, London).In the British version the situation is much the same, except that the hole leads into the living quarters of a lighthouse where the keeper ("The Captain") lives with his dog (also called Sprocket).Gobo must go out into Doc's workshop to retrieve the postcards from his uncle Matt from the wastebasket where Doc throws them, assuming they are misdelivered.Fraggles are small anthropomorphic creatures, typically 18 inches (46 cm) tall, that come in a variety of colors and have fur tuft tipped tails.Fraggles live a generally carefree life, spending most of their time (they have a thirty-minute work week) playing, exploring, and generally enjoying themselves.
