YMMV: Fraggle Rock

  • Anvilicious: One of the all-too-rare successful aversions!
  • Ear Worm: The theme song... oh god THE THEME SONG!
  • Fridge Horror: In "Marooned", Red and Boober are trapped in a cave-in and running out of air. They both quickly recognize the symptoms of this. Suddenly, living underground doesn't seem quite so charming and carefree...
  • Magnum Opus: Combining music, puppetry, ethos, on an international level from the very start.
  • Moe: Wembley. The other four main characters have their moments as well.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Terrible Tunnel. "Heidi!" "HOOOOOO-oooo...."
    • The Gorgs, to many a younger viewer.
  • Periphery Demographic: Indeed, many are the fans who like it even more as adults.
  • Special Effect Failure: In "We Love You Wembley" there is a scene in the Gorgs' garden where Junior runs toward Mokey and Wembley. The camera moves a little to the right but the Fraggles (who were filmed separately via bluescreen) stay in place perfectly. Especially jarring since the bluescreening in the rest of the series was impressive for its day.
  • Wangst: Gobo occasionally falls into this, mostly based on his status of de-facto leader of the gang. As early as the first season, he spends most of the Invisible Garboil episode in the depths of a Heroic BSOD!
    • This is even parodied in the second-season episode "Wembley and the Great Race", where Wembley has a Dream Sequence in which Gobo goes completely to pieces over losing a race.
