    It's hard to find a good kid's show (well, to some) that hits hard on such serious topics without loosing it's innocent outlook. I think Fraggle Rock did that well, and I'm so glad I was around to see it (although it was in reruns already). Thanx, Fraggle Rock! No good shows anymore do what you did.

    Oh, yeah, and how could we forget that the Fraggle Rock theme has the BEST bass line EVER WRITTEN???? (I'm listenin' to it right now, so that's what made me think of it!!!!) A friend of mine, who's an AWESOME bass player, plays it for me all the time!!!! :D

    Yeah...but you said in he original version of the show. What were you comparing it to? The animated? The openings done internationally to mirror the cultures of other countries?

    Heh heh. That's not old. I was either in 2nd or 3rd grade when it first aired. I've never been certain if the show was first shown on tv in '82 or '83.

    Nick, I'm, like, 99% sure it was taped in '82 and aired in '83.

    Happy Birthday, Fraggle Rock!!!

    Let me just say that I feel honored to have had Fraggle Rock as part of my childhood. The series was (and is) a true masterpiece. Without being too preachy and never talking down to children, "Fraggle Rock" is as enjoyable for adults to watch as well as kids. Heck, I'm almost in my 30's and I still enjoy Fraggle Rock as much as I did when I was a kid. It was Jim Henson himself who said (about Fraggle Rock) "If we do the show well, it's the kind of show that families and almost anybody can enjoy."

    Fraggle Rock, above all else, taught us to help and understand one another. It also remained as one of the brightest points in my childhood. I always felt welcome at "the Heart of the Rock". The show has a very comforting atmosphere. Even though I know all the episodes by heart, they are still as enjoyable and funny to me as ever. I even keep certain Fraggle traditions. I watch the episode "Marooned" every year on my birthday. My sister and I always watch "The Bells of Fraggle Rock" every Dec. 21st, and we ring bells along with the Fraggles at the end of the special. We do that to celebrate friends we have made through Mr. Henson's work.

    I am very proud to say that I grew up with Fraggle Rock as a part of my childhood. To everybody who worked on Fraggle Rock, thank you for all the joy you've given me. I will love Fraggle Rock for as long as I live. And that's a promise! (Weeba! Weeba! Waffa! Waffa! Garpax, Gumbage, WHOOPEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!) :excited:
