It was a beloved children’s television program throughout the 1980s. Now, fans of the series can enjoy a revival available today.

Debuting a year after Apple TV+ launched a series of pandemic-set shorts featuring the core Fraggles, Fraggle Rock: Back To The Rock suggests that the mistake was thinking Fraggle Rock needed to be “reimagined” at all. Yes, Back To The Rock reflects how the world has changed since the original series about the fun-loving creatures living behind the wall of Doc’s workshop debuted in 1983: Doc has been transformed from a grizzled inventor to a young Black PhD candidate (Lilli Cooper) studying ocean pollution, for instance, and the episodic lessons bear the marks of a more progressive world, like an early episode built around teaching consent.
