Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated Saturday morning cartoon is inoffensive, but also uninspired, particularly when compared against its mother ship, Fraggle Rock. There are a few generally positive messages, but the gag-oriented plot overwhelms them. If kids want to watch it due to its live-action counterpart, it will do no harm, but they may get bored and wander off before the show's over.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Lots of cartoonish falling into pits and running away from scary monsters.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Though the episodes always have positive messages like "be cheerful," they're lost in the cartoonish gags.
