To celebrate this momentous anniversary, Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment has released the Fraggle Rock: 30th Anniversary Collection Set! It includes all 4 Seasons, a collectible Red plush keychain, and an all new exclusive Fraggle Rock graphic novel featuring a parent-friendly activity guide!
Another option to celebrate the big anniversary is Fraggle Rock: Meet the Fraggles, which I was given the opportunity to review! My tot had so much fun singing the intro song with me and watching the Fraggles and the Gorgs. Meet the Fraggles features 6 Episodes that introduce you to the main characters.
- We Love You Wembley
- Boober’s Dream
- Red’s Club
- Mokey and the Minstrels
- Gobo’s Discovery
Since it has been awhile for many of us (or it is completely new), I thought I would reintroduce you to the characters in Meet the Fraggles!
Gobo Fraggle is an explorer, just like his Uncle Traveling Matt. Whereas Matt explores Outer Space, Gobo devotes himself to the exploration of Fraggle Rock’s many caverns and unchartered regions. Gobo is also the only Fraggle who is brave enough to go into Doc’s Workshop to pick up his uncle’s postcards while evading Doc’s dog Sprocket. Whenever the Fraggles are in trouble, Gobo finds inspiration in these postcards.- Muppet Wikia
Red is athletic and energetic. She likes to think of herself as the fastest and strongest Fraggle in the Rock. She is highly competitive with her friends, which sometimes causes extreme interpersonal problems, especially with Gobo Fraggle. – Muppet Wikia
Unlike other Fraggles, Boober does not like fun and games and spends most of his time worrying about doom and disease. When he’s not worrying about himself, he’s busy warning others. He is easily frightened and suffers from a variety of phobias like a fear of heights. Because of his fears, he is very knowledgeable about health and superstition. He has a lucky charm for just about anything — often multiples. – Muppet Wikia
Wembley is the youngest Fraggle of the group. He is often cheerful and energetic, but also very insecure. He usually agrees with everybody at the same time, because he hates to argue. Wembley never seems to make up his mind: he even has trouble deciding which shirt to wear, although he owns only two, which are identical. – Muppet Wikia
Mokey is a dreamer. She loves painting, writing poems, writing in her diary, meditating, or just enjoying her surroundings. Because she is the oldest of the Fraggle Five, she functions as the ‘den mother’ within the group. Mokey is very emotional and concerned about others. She’s always ready to help a friend in need, even if it’s a Gorg. – Muppet Wikia
Mokey was always my favorite, mostly because I always could relate to her as a dreamer and caregiver of the group. Each of the characters have wonderful personalities that kids can easily identify with. The world of the Fraggles brings to light the bright eyes and imagination of every child and it was a treat to see it come alive in my son’s heart as it had once mine.
You can pick up Fraggle Rock: Meet the Fraggles for $12.68 on Amazon. Happy 30th Anniversary!
