You Can ‘Dance Your Cares Away’ With New Episodes of Fraggle Rock
Another one of Jim Henson's amazing creations is being brought back to life. For the first time since the 1980s, we have the opportunity to go back underground and head (clap, clap) down to Fraggle Rock.
New episodes of Fraggle Rock: Rock On! have already begun. They will only be a few minutes long, and a new one will be available each Tuesday on Apple TV +. Oh yeah, and the reboot will be FREE too! How cool is it that a whole new generation of kids will get to see the kind of show that their parents were glued to when they were younger.
Another really cool part to this story that can't be overlooked is the way these new episodes are being put together. Because the coronavirus has forced most folks to stay at home, producers have had to use some Henson-esque creativity. According to a statement from Apple, “Fraggle Rock: Rock On! is all shot on iPhone 11 phones from the homes of the production team and individual artists from all over the U.S.” (Thanks to TechCrunch.com for that neat little tidbit)
And since thinking about things from back in the day, take a gander at these games/activities from when we were kids. Maybe it'd be fun to do some of this stuff with your kiddos.
