    I don't think I could actually pick a favorite or a list of favorite episodes. I love the entire series. Even the few episodes I wasn't too cray about in the past I've gained a new appreciation for after watching them again in my later years. If someone had a gun to my head (how very un-Fraggleish of them) and said I had to pick one favorite episode, I'd say The Bells of Fraggle Rock. There's something so incredibly timeless about that particular episode (and the series in general).

    My three favorites have always been (in no particular order) Manny's Land of Carpets, A Tune for Two and The River of Life.

    A new favorite however, for which I've gained a huge appreciation since the DVDs, is Mokey and the Minstrels.

    Hmmm..I feel like I've done this topic before..hmmm..My favorites...It's weird, a lot of my favorites I remember best from back in the day are ones that have anything to do with the gorgs garden :). But having seen the whole series now...

    Favorites since I was 12 (if you were to ask what stands for FR to me deep down, I would say these):
    The Garden Plot
    Wonder Mountain
    Red's Blue Dragon

    Others now:

    Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk
    Catch the Tail by the Tiger
    Capture the Moon
    Mokey's Funeral
    Mokey and the Minstrels
    Manny's Land of Carpets
    Junior Sells the Farm
    Home Is Where the Trash Is
    The Beanbarrow, the Burden and the Bright Bouquet
    Gobo's School for Explorers
    Doomsday Soup
    A Dark and Stormy Night
    The Lost Treasure of the Fraggles
    (you know, the two of these together would have made a good tv movie now that I think of it)
    The River of Life (I think, if this episode had Children of Tomorrow in it, I would marry it as the greatest FR episode of all IMHO) :3

    There are more, I mean I don't dislike any of them, but these are the ones that stand out to me off the top of my head (Besides the ending episodes, and A Tune for Two, and many others that are just as good as these or better, which just go without saying:D).

    The River of Life is my favorite so far. I haven't seen every episode yet, though.

    I love the entire series, but I must say that one of my favorite episodes is Marooned. There is just something in that episode that really attracts me, but I don't really know what it is.

    I couldn't pick an all-time favorite, but my favorite right now is Wembley's Wonderful Whoopie Water. The songs are fun, the dialogue is snappy, Doc and Sprocket's part is funny, the Fraggles discover caffeine, and Wembley is heroic. What's not to love? :coy:

    I've just watched The River of Life and Gone But Not Forgotten for the first time over the past couple of days. And I am so amazed and awed at the gravitas and sheer emotion in those episodes. Those episodes of a kids' show. Those episodes of a kids' show with puppets. As a lifelong Muppet fan, I shouldn't be surprised at that sort of thing. But they just keep blowing me away, again and again.

    For me Fraggle Rock's ability to address edgier issues and make powerful statements has always reminded me of that old song: "I think I could say something (if you know what I mean). But if I really say it, the radio won't play it. Unless I lay it between the lines." This show, and pretty much the Muppets in general, were experts at getting deeper messages across that the "Powers That Be" were not expecting because it's "just a kid's show."

    Yes, especially in Marooned, where the subject of death is brought up, on a show for kids. It is surprising that they managed to bring that up, but that just makes me love that episode even more.

    Favorites Episodes, wow, I keep digging more into the forums and finding interesting topics to reply to, even though they are becoming months older now.

    Favorites Episodes that come to my mind right off without much though and I've watched the most:
    The Minstrels
    Mokey And The Minstrels
    The Bells of Fraggle Rock
    The Honk of Honks

    Yep, I liked Cantus that much. /grin

    I'll come back here later and post more favorites once I have a chance to look over the Episodes list on the Wiki page.

    Hey guys! I didn't mean to come back to this "old" thread, but finally the Henson Company has brought up a playlist called, "Redheads." We all know so far the two Fraggles with red hair are Red and Boober.

    Note - You may surprised that those could be the parts of the episodes, "Red's Club" and "Marooned." (my favorite episode of all time). You probably have never seen any of those either for days or by years.





    Enjoy and happy FraggleFriday for those of you that are into watching Fraggle Rock on Fridays.

    My all time favorite episode is "Scared Silly". Wembley is my favorite character, with Gobo being a close second. :coy:

    Me too! Wembley was always my favorite character. :coy: "Scared Silly" is one of my favorite episodes too. I must of been having too many dreams of that little Fraggle. LOL!

    Maybe it's partly because he sorta reminds me of Chuckie from the Rugrats, who is my favorite from the Rugrats. If Rugrats and Fraggle Rock ever met up for some reason, I know Tommy and Gobo would be best friends, and Chuckie and Wembly would be as well. It's already been 30 years since the Fraggles first appeared on TV? The Henson company needs to do something BIG for this!

    My favorite episodes are Marroned (My all time favorite!) and The Beast of Blue Rock with A Tune For Two coming in a very close second, of not first. All of these episodes have to do with friendships in some way, shape, or form, which is something that I hold very dear to me.

    My favorite Fraggle Rock episodes are probably Marooned, Wembley's Egg, Boober's Dream, The Day The Music Died, Boober's Quiet Day, The Bells of Fraggle Rock, The Secret Society of Poohbahs, Scared Silly, A Tune for Two, The Perfect Blue Rollie, The River of Life, Gone But Not Forgotten, The Gorg Who Would Be King, The Honk of Honks, and Change of Address. Phew! It was hard enough to even narrow it down to just those because I seriously adore all of the episodes.

    My favorite episodes are the same as yours, RumbleBug! :) On my list I'd put all the episodes you mentioned and also Wembley And The Great Race, Space Frog Follies and Mokey, Then And Now. I can't pick one favorite episode because they're so different, but I'd put The Bells of Fraggle Rock, Gone But Not Forgotten and Space Frog Follies somewhere near the top.
