Throwback Thursday!

Its Throwback Thursday again, where we visit things that were once amazing but are now weird or embarassing. Today’s topic: Fraggle Rock.

If you don’t remember Fraggle Rock you probably had an empty childhood. Or you just didn’t have cable since during my Fraggle Rock research I found out that it only came out on HBO. Maybe this is why I have such a strong affinity for HBO. If I am going through a poor spell I would rather go without things like solid foods or vehicle maintenance or going out than to give up my HBO in fear I might miss something epic. Fraggle Rock ran from 1983 to 1987, which was a time where I was barely forming a memory so you know this was good stuff. I am pretty sure the Fraggles are the inspiration for the movie Avatar also. They could share and enter each other’s dreams and thoughts, they were a euphemism for prejudice and other profound matters, and they were strangely colored. Its practically the same program but in caves rather than jungles. Anyway, no one really cares about the story. The best part of Fraggle Rock is the theme song, which has been in my head for days now and will now be in yours:

Fraggle Love,

For the record, Fraggle Rock and other 1990s theme songs are available for purchase on ITunes. I am now the proud yet slightly humiliated owner of Fraggle Rock, the Jetson's and Scooby Doo. My ITunes Genius bar is flabergasted.

I never watched it. HBO was a luxury we didn't have until about 1996, and I thought we were BIG TIME then.
