Following on from the success of 2020's Zoom-filmed Fraggle Rock: Rock On!, a reboot series called Back To The Rocklanded on Apple TV+ today (January 21). It'll feature the likes of Cynthia Erivo, Ed Helms (The Office) and Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live).

It'll feature "the likes of" Erivo, Helms and Thompson? That reads like a passive-aggressive insult.

Silly me, I thought they all got arrested and sent to the psych ward in Brixton Prison.

I just finished Grohl's autobiography.  What a fascinating read.  Was never a Nirvana guy (Pumpkins all the way) but I've seen the Foos live.....4 times (??) and hope to many more times.  I don't know any of the songs outside fo the 4-5 Big Hits but they put on a motherfarker of a show.  Love the Foos and god bless Dave.

Wait... Doc is gone but Sprocket's still there?  That makes no sense.

Also, having not watched this show since the original series' run, I've only now noticed that you can go up out of the Fraggle caves and enter either the surface world of the Gorgs, OR the surface world we're more familiar with via the hole in Doc's wall.

Space around Fraggle Rock is obviously seriously messed up.

Fraggle Rock Lyrics

Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Work your cares away,
Dancing's for another day.
Let the Fraggles play,
We're Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, Red.

Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock.
Down at Fraggle Rock.
Down at Fraggle Rock.

Looks like Karen Prell is the only voice actor to return from the original series (she was Red). But all the other male puppets and Sprocket are voiced by one guy, John Tartaglia? I assume the puppeteering happened on set and then dubbing was added. I'm wondering how that would work since the main puppet mechanics and the voice being done by the same performer is what really brings a puppet to life, at least I would think.

You love the Foos yet only know 4-5 of the big hits?  Sounds like you love them as much as any of my exs loved me.  So good enough I suppose

Doc went on vacation to Colombia and a visit to the doctor and returned a little different, is all.

Also, the Gorge world was more a part of the Fraggle world than FW was of part of ours. We were "Creatures from Outer Space" not the Gorges.

Half point for a series based on a fever dream from the movie.

It's even more badass than that...  His ankle was dislocated.  The medic put it back in backstage and then had to hold it still For the entirety of the show until they could take him to get it casted.  Once it was back in Dave asked if he could go back on stage and the medic said I have to keep it immobile, so Dave just said ok, then you're coming with me!

I liked it better when Fraggle Rock enforced competency hierarchies.

Most of us were tired of his middling crap 25 years ago.

The Foos cancelled the one time I tried to see them. They were opening for the Chili Peppers (who I hate) and ten minutes before the show they cancelled. Apparently Dave got too drunk in Dayton the night before and was puking in the tour bus.

The Foo Fighters made me see like half an hour of a RHCP show and waste probably $50+ in college money. Dave can't undo that no matter how awesome he is now.

You owe me, Dave.

oh my god that's epic and totally believable.


foxy_canuck: It's even more badass than that... His ankle was dislocated.


yeah we saw one of the "throne" shows (he borrowed......Lemmy's "throne" and rocked the entire show sitting down.  He'd later loan in to Axl afater Axl broke his ankle).

fun moment at the show...a day or so prior, Chris Shifflet was on the Adam Carolla podcast and said how the previous night in LA, STEVIE NICKS  went onstage.  She's from Phoenix. So, 1-2 days later, the Foos are in town and midway through the show, Grohl announces, from his throne, "PHOENIX MOTHERfarkERS, WE GOT A SPECIAL TREAT FOR YOU TONIGHT, YOU MOTHERfarkERS AIN'T GONNA BELIEVE WHO'S COMING ONSTAGE TO SING WITH US TONIGHT!"

My heart skips.  I think, "Chris just said 2 nights ago STEVIE NICKS sang with them, she's from Phoenix, holy shiat, I'm gonna see Stevie farking Nicks?"

"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BE PREPARED TO GET YOUR farkING ASSES KICKED!"

Grohl starts playing the LZ "WHole Lotta Love" riff, the band joins on.

Out slinks this tiny, twig of a person who starts doing the Robert Plant banshee wail.  I'm like, "I don't know who that is, but that sure the fark ISN"T Stevie Nicks!"

they do the entire song, the unnamed female guest nails the song, including Plant's orgasmic wails.

song ends and Grohl says, "MOTHERfarkERS GIVE THAT shiat THE fark UP FOR .......JEWEL!!!!!"

Jewel.

Grohl says the show before in San Diego, she was backstage.  she aasked what their next show was, Grohl is like, "Phoenix, tomorrow night."  she said she was gonig to be in Phoenix.  Grohl says, "AND WHEN SHE TOLD ME THAT farkIN shiat, I TOLD HER, YOUR ASS BETTER BE AT THE SHOW AND BETTER YET, YOU BETTER COME farkIN SING WITH US!  THE FOO FIGHTERS AND JEWEL?  YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT farkIN shiat!"
