Before SpongeBob SquarePants, Barneys, Power Puff Girls and Pokemon dominated children’s entertainment, there seemed to have been healthier and more nostalgic choices such as Sesame Street (who taught us all about alphabets, counting, sharing and good values), The Muppets and then there was Fraggle Rock. For the eighties babies, Jim Henderson’s Fraggle Rock brought about a new choice program especially for those who loved his The Muppets.The raucous bunch didn’t just bring children happy colors and laughs, but actually took time to deal with serious issues such as prejudice, spirituality, personal identity and social conflict in attempts to instill sound values in the younger generation. The boisterous inhabitants of Fraggle Rock, Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober and Red kept children happy for four seasons and 96 episodes.
While the series is over, Dr. Romanelli stepped in and revived the Fraggle Rock residents in a capsule collection of apparel, toys and prints. The tees and sweater come in faded vintage shades of chambray blue, mustard yellow and gradient green, paired with the trippy graphics in a pop Art Nouveau style. Other than wearable items, the collection also comes with a Doozer figurine for the mantle, a limited edition poster and printed tote. The capsule collection is now available for order online at colette for a quick quell of childhood nostalgia.
