Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series was a children's animated television series developed by Jim Henson and produced by NBC. It was a spin-off of the popular live-action series, Fraggle Rock, which featured an ensemble cast of puppet characters living in an underground world full of adventure and music.

The animated series followed the same basic premise as its live-action predecessor, but with a few differences. Instead of Jim Henson's famous Muppet puppetry, the animated series used traditional animation to bring the characters to life. Additionally, the show focused exclusively on the adventures of the Fraggles, the pint-sized creatures that lived within the underground caverns of Fraggle Rock.

The main characters of the series were Gobo, Mokey, Red, Wembley, and Boober, a group of quirky and lovable Fraggles who loved to explore and have adventures. They lived in harmony with the other creatures that inhabited Fraggle Rock, including the Doozers, tiny, industrious creatures that loved to build things, and the Gorgs, a family of giant, lumbering creatures that ruled over the land.

Each episode of Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series followed the Fraggles on a new adventure as they discovered new parts of their underground world and interacted with the other creatures that lived there. Along the way, they learned valuable lessons about friendship, cooperation, and the importance of being true to oneself.

The show featured a talented voice cast that brought the characters to life with charm and humor. Richard Hunt provided the voice of Gobo, the adventurous and resourceful Fraggle who led the group on most of their escapades. John Stephenson played the voice of Mokey, the dreamy and artistic Fraggle who saw beauty in everything. Bob Bergen voiced Red, the spunky and competitive Fraggle who never backed down from a challenge.

Stuart M. Rosen rounded out the main cast as the voice of Wembley, the nervous and indecisive Fraggle who often struggled to make up his mind. Patricia Parris provided the voice of Boober, the timid and cautious Fraggle who was always worried about something. Townsend Coleman, Mona Marshall, Rob Paulsen, Barbara Goodson, Patrick Pinney, and Eric Stuart all lent their talents to various roles throughout the series.

Throughout its run, Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series enchanted audiences with its whimsical storytelling, catchy music, and lovable characters. It was a hit with both children and adults and remains a beloved part of Jim Henson's legacy.

In conclusion, Fraggle Rock: The Animated Series was an entertaining and heartwarming children's show that brought the beloved characters of Fraggle Rock to a new generation of viewers. With its colorful animation, catchy songs, and valuable life lessons, it remains a classic of children's television.
