The ideals of friendship, being true to yourself and learning to love those who are incredibly different were the cornerstones of Jim Henson's work throughout his career, and he considered ''Fraggle Rock'' to be one of the purest and most successful expressions of that vision. In turn, many Henson fans have agreed that ''Fraggle Rock'' may be his [[MagnumOpus masterpiece]].

Added DiffLines:
* DigitalDestruction: The 2015 re-airing of the ChristmasSpecial (which was originally videotaped) on Creator/ABCFamily[=/=]Freeform gives it a jarring faux-film look (especially horrid compared to some Disney shows that were also videotaped but have a faux-film look).

** Considering some of their possessions, it's likely they are the last survivors of what might have been a mighty kingdom long, long ago.

** Their relationship is fairly common in real life with senior citizen best friends who have outlived their spouses and family; they become like brothers or sisters who will never stop being there for each other.

* InvisibleToNormals: The final episodes have a ''very'' strange variation on this one. [[spoiler:Seems Gobo never had to go through all the stress of hiding from Doc all those years...]]

* OnlySaneMan: Boober often plays this role for the Fraggles. Murray is clearly this for the Minstrels. Sprocket is occasionally this for Doc.

Oddly enough, for all his childlike understanding of his world, Junior Gorg becomes this for Ma and Pa Gorg, most obvious in how he handles Wander McMooch, for example.

Added DiffLines:
* AerithAndBob: Of the main Fraggles, you have names like Boober and Wembley alongside names like Red and Matt.

Added DiffLines:
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Red, particularly early on, has a habit of emphasizing failures and flaws that others are struggling with, while not noticing just how much it hurts who she's speaking to. One example early is when she piled on Boober for failing to alert Gobo (due to fear-induced inability to whistle) to Sprocket's approach when Gobo was trying to get Matt's postcard.
