The magical land of the Fraggles - contained within a lighthouse! The show was created by Jim Henson's Workshop - who made it an instant classic! 5 seasons and 96 episodes were made between 1983 and 1988. The show has a huge cult following, especially in the US.

Lyrics

Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Work your cares away,
Dancing's for another day.
Let the Fraggles play,
We're Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, Red.

(instrumental)

Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Down at Fraggle Rock.

Boober: Down at Fraggle Rock.

VHS

A great many VHS releases were made during the eighties, and again in the nineties. Whilst they don't comprise the entire series, they might be worth obtaining.

They were deleted long ago, so secondhand markets are the only source, Amazon Marketplace and eBay regularly have items.

Other

Fraggle Rock was one of the most heavily merchandised shows of the eighties. Toys, clothing, books, music, trinkets, all sorts of things, were produced and marketed in many countries.

eBay is a good place to look to pick up these items.

Zazzle.com have a section for making your own customized Fraggle Rock printed clothing.

Amazon.com sells some soft toy figures by Sababa Toys of a few fraggles that look good.
