Mental Health Break

Fraggle Rock was even more morbid than you remember:

Update from a reader:

I loved Fraggle Rock when my kids were small in the ’80s. It was soooo well done. It was genuinely amusing for them and for me. There was always a thoughtful issue – something concerning the competing populations or something universal to all of them – gently introduced in each episode in interesting and sympathetic ways kids could consider. I’ve thought many times over the years that it’s really quite amazing that it hasn’t come back for subsequent generations. Beats any of the programming available to my grandson today hands down! It’s a great loss.
