Apple TV+ Launches Surprise Self-Isolating ‘Fraggle Rock: Rock On!’ Series Today!
We all need to some light relief at the moment, and what better way to do it than to “Dance your cares away,” and keep your “worry’s for another day!” Apple TV+ are hoping to show people how to do that with the help of the Fraggles, in ‘Fraggle Rock: Rock On!’ which launches today on the streaming service!
The beloved stars of the classic ’80s series – Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, Wembley and Uncle Traveling Matt – join together again for new stories and classic Fraggle songs that show everyone how we are all connected through friendship. While the Fraggles might be in different parts of the Fraggle Rock caves, they can still find ways to have fun together, with music, silliness, special guests, and of course the help of devices created by the industrious Doozers – lovingly called the Doozertubes!
In accordance with the Covid-19 “Safer at Home” guidelines, ‘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 US. The mini-sides are produced by the Jim Henson Company, with Halle Stanford and John Tartaglia exec producing.
Episode one of the series is on Apple TV+ right now. Titled “Shine On,” it sees new Doozertubes delivered to the Fraggles’ caves, allowing them to come together for a favourite song, “Shine On, Shine On Me.”
New mini-episodes of ‘Fraggle Rock: Rock On! will premiere globally on Apple TV+, every Tuesday.
