Shortform Fraggle Rock Series From Jim Henson Company Now Available on Apple TV+

Apple TV+ has inked a deal for "Fraggle Rock: Rock On," a shortform series from the Jim Henson Company that features characters from popular series "Fraggle Rock," according to The Hollywood Reporter.


There is one episode available now and new episodes will debut each Tuesday on ‌Apple TV+‌. Episodes of the show are just three to five minutes in length, hence the "shortform" part of the series.

The show was shot using iPhone 11 devices from the homes of the production team and artists across the United States due to shelter in place orders.

"Fraggle Rock: Rock On" joins several other ‌Apple TV+‌ shows aimed at children, including "Helpsters," "Snoopy in Space," and "Ghostwriter."

It was pretty disappointing. Nothing like the depth of original Fraggle Rock. The backgrounds were flat static images with the puppet in front: nothing like the live 3D backgrounds full of life and interest of the originals. Looked like a cheap rush job
I was also a little disappointed. Looks cheap. Then I realized why. This show was put together last minute to be able to be filmed from the puppeteers‘ homes. Notice the theme of this first episode is staying in touch with friends with technology in this time of social distancing. This wasn’t filmed months ago. It’s made the week that it goes live. Hopefully it’s still successful and after this pandemic is done, they have a bigger budget so that future episodes are more dynamic, with a full set.

OMG YES. I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this headline!! WHAT A WIN FOR APPLE!! It is MASSIVE to have big IP on TV+. Fraggle Rock and Dinosaur were my childhood. Does this mean Apple has a deal with the Muppet Company? This is very exciting! If we can get the other massive shows from The Muppet Company on TV+ in the future that would be amazing. Disney owns the Muppets but not Dinosaur, Fraggle Rock, etc.
