Fraggle Rock




Apple TV+ finally added something I'd watch!

5 minute shorts featuring the Fraggles coping with isolation.

The show's not popped up on Apple TV yet. Gonna have to wait until tomorrow
Meanwhile, the soundtrack's available on Apple Music (and others, maybe?)
There's a lovely rendition of "Follow Me" on there.

Finally got around to watching the first episode.
'Tis a reboot..

Doc moves in with Sprockett, Uncle Travelling Matt leaves for outer space, etc.
Reintroduces all the characters including doozers and gorgs. Everything is reset back to the way it was.
Can't grumble, I suppose.

So, more of exactly the same, but different then?

Different enough.
I mean, I have to keep in mind it's a bloody kid's show I'm watching, and none of the actual kids will be familiar with this retreading, so..
um..
*shrugs*

It's a higher quality, but it's really properly made to be like the original.
It feels a bit more like how the new Danger Mouse was "Proper Danger Mouse", and not how "Muppet Babies" is "god awful crap aimed at 2 year olds"

The only bit where I felt "Oooh, that's a bit modern" was when they took an obviously smaller modern camera into the world of the doozers. That stood out as something they definitely couldn't easily have done in the past.
Otherwise, it looked and felt like the original.
I'll continue to watch an episode daily, until I get bored of it.

I loved Muppet Babies (BITD)

Hopefully it will make its way to more mainstream channels. Or DDL and torrent sites...

I don't think they ever did reveal the nanny's face in Muppet Babies.

I think you're right - same as Tom/Jasper's owner in Tom & Jerry (why call it Tom & Jerry if the cat's called Jasper?!), 'Er Indoors (Minder), Mrs Columbo (erm... can't remember the name of that show now ) etc. etc.

It added to the mythos, but never really mattered.

Mrs Columbo was Captain Janeway

Whuuuuuuuuuuuuttt!!!??? How did I not know this? I just looked and saw that there were a number episodes of Mrs Columbo. Looks like Peter Falk wasn't a fan - "It was a bad idea. It was disgraceful."

I love Columbo. However, to be fair, I was talking about the Columbo movies in which Mrs Columbo never actually appeared.

I'm going to have to have a looksee now...

Cheers Jay!

|edit| It would appear that while the names were similar there's no tangible evidence that Columbo was actually married/divorced to/by Mrs Columbo - http://www.columbo-site.freeuk.com/mrsc.htm

So. There you go. Confused?

I have a feeling, if it had turned out to be popular, they'd have retroactively canonised it.
But, yeah..

There was a new dangermouse?

2 series of it, all available via BBC iPlayer.

Takes a couple of minutes to get over the change in voice actors, but then .. Yeah, it's pretty much "just more Danger Mouse"
In fact, this one even starts off under terms of it being a continuation.

I've just watched episode 7, having watched one a day except one. (Zonked out, forgot to watch it)
I'm still enjoying it, because I'm a big kid.
There's definitely "silly" moments, but I'm not complaining.

Events are carrying on from one episode to the next, too. I mean, it's not like "the big series arc" type things, but it's feeling much more like a cohesive story, rather than every episode resetting like the older series would.
.. how odd, and somewhat unexpected.

..and just when you're 100% sure this is a reboot.. random callback to something that happened in the original series.
And then ... a cliffhanger?!
The fuck is going on with this series!??!

OK, binge watched the last few.

Over the past 20 or 30 years, they've been on/off'ing a Fraggle Rock movie, and .. Honestly, it feels like that was the plot, here.
As it got further into the series, the episodic nature took a back seat to a rather nicely done storyline.

I actually enjoyed that more than I probably should've..

Never really a big Fraggle Rock fan. I don't know why, it just seemed like it was attempting to pander to my young self a little too much. Never really gave it much thought, just knew it didn't appeal to me.

I'm glad people enjoy it though.
