As nostalgia continues to reign, Apple TV + has just launched the first episode of its Fraggle Rock the comeback. Fraggle Rock: Rock On! Brings the 1980s Cave Muppets into the Modern Age in a series of mini-episodes focused on social distancing. The characters traveled freely through Fraggle Rock – the titular cave system – but the passages closed. The Fraggles must now find creative ways to interact and make music – new and classic songs will be part of the show. According to Deadline, the first mini-sode implies that the Fraggles receive new Doozertubes, which allow them to communicate and play a new song.
The show’s production has seen a rapid turnaround – social distancing has been in place for less than a few months. Part of the reason the production crew was able to create the show so quickly is because it was shot on an iPhone and produced in the homes of the crew and artists in the United States. Jim Henson – the same producer of the original show – does Fraggle Rock: Rock On!, so viewers can expect a certain level of quality and fan service when the short episodes air on Tuesday.
