Fraggle Rock was a children's series, created by Jim Henson and starring dolls or puppets, called Fraggles. 96 episodes were broadcast from January 10, 1983 to March 30, 1987.
Jim Henson's articulated vision of Fraggle Rock was to provide a fun and colorful world, but also a world with a relatively complex system of symbiotic relationships between different types of creatures, an allegory of the real world, where each group ignored how interconnected they were. they were and how important they were to others. Creating this allegorical world allowed the program to entertain and entertain while seriously exploring aspects of prejudice, spirituality, personal identity, the environment, and social conflict.
Fraggle Rock generally refused to oversimplify any individual issue, instead only showing the consequences and inherent difficulties of different actions and relationships. Although the Fraggles did learn important lessons, they were rarely aware of having learned them.
The ideals of friendship, sincerity with oneself, and learning to love those who are genuinely different were the cornerstone of Jim Henson's work throughout his 40-year career, and he considered Fraggle Rock as one of the expressions purest and most successful of that vision.
