* AdoredByTheNetwork: Interestingly enough, when TheHub was first starting up, ''Fraggle Rock'' was one of the shows the network was giving a big push in the marketing, probably because it was the most recognizable program on their original schedule. They even had Karen Prell film new footage as Red Fraggle for bumpers between shows. Little did they know a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a certain pony show]] was about to steal every Hub show's thunder. The Hub stopped airing ''Fraggle Rock'' in June of 2012 (barring a 3-hour marathon on April 21, 2013 to celebrate the show's 30th anniversary). Reruns resumed on a regular basis on June 4, 2013.
* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: Doc's counterpart "The Captain" in the UK adaptation of the show was only featured in the first two seasons of the show because of Fulton [=MacKay=]'s unfortunate death. The Captain's nephew P.K. took over the lighthouse in season 3. After [[PutOnABus P.K. left]], for the final two seasons [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute B.J.]] was introduced as [[LongLostRelative the Captain's son.]]
* DevelopmentHell: Dear God, TheMovie!
* EarlyBirdCameo: In Season 1, "The Great Radish Famine," Cottenpin Doozer is first seen as an unnamed baby.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Doc is played by the same actor who later played Doc the bartender in ''Film/TheBoondockSaints''.
** The whole postcard where Uncle Travelling Matt tries out "rapid transit" (a roller coaster) is priceless, but check out who's sitting next to Matt on the coaster. It's none other than his puppeteer, Dave Goelz!
* HeyItsThatVoice: Many established Muppeteers performed in this show.
** That's Creator/JimHenson as Cantus and Convincing John.
** Creator/MonaMarshall was the voice of Mokey and Cotterpin in the AnimatedAdaptation. HilariousInHindsight since both characters also shared an actress/puppeteer in Kathryn Mullen.
** Believe it or not, Creator/RobPaulsen provided the voice of Boober in the animated series.
** Because he performs so many characters in this series (including the main protagonist), Jerry Nelson's voice is easily recognizable.
** Kathryn Mullen, who performed Mokey Fraggle on the show, also performed Kira in ''Film/TheDarkCrystal'' [[note]]who was voiced by Lisa Maxwell[[/note]]. Mullen also voiced Allegra in ''Series/AllegrasWindow'' and Leona on ''Series/BetweenTheLions''.
** Wembley Fraggle sounds like a younger, more innocent [[Series/TheMuppetShow Rizzo the Rat]] -- only without the Brooklyn accent. No wonder, since Steve Whitmire played both (and has even described how he had some problems making Rizzo's voice distinct from Wembley's).
** [[WesternAnimation/TheTick Townsend]] [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Coleman]] voices Gobo in the animated series.
* InternationalCoproduction: With the [[Creator/{{CBC}} Canadian Broadcasting Corporation]] and Britain's [[{{ITV}} Television South]].
* MissingEpisode: Most of the UK version.
* TheOtherDarrin: Ma Gorg was voiced by Myra Fried in the first season, with Cheryl Wagner taking over the role in the second season.
* ShortRunInPeru: [=HBO=] divided the fourth and final season into two very short seasons. Fortunately, although it took an agonizingly long time, the Final Season set [[http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Fraggle-Rock-Easter-DVD/12772 has been released]]!
* The fifth episode of the first season "The Thirty Minute Work Week" was actually the very first episode to be filmed; it was shot in March 1982. The pilot "Beginnings" was not filmed until June 1982. The reason was simple: Jim Henson wanted the puppeteers to be comfortable with their characters before doing the very first episode. You can also see that some of the characters look slightly off in "The Thirty Minute Work Week" (most notably Sprocket, the Trash Heap and to some extent Gobo), because several puppets underwent slight design changes after the episode was filmed.
