In35 of these British wraparounds were still missing, believed wipedbut subsequent recoveries have reduced this number to nine, with 87 known to exist. The episodes shown were the Canadian versions. In the German version, the action takes place beneath the workshop of the inventor Doc played by Hans-Helmut Dickow. The series was named Die Fraggles with 85 of the 96 produced episodes being presented in German. In France, the wraparound segments take place in a bakery with its version of Doc played by Michel Robin who worked as a baker and a French alter-ego for Sprocket called Croquette.
Doc inherited the home from his eccentric Uncle Georges who was a noted inventor. Thus, when the frame story required the use of a mechanical device, Doc would find yet another of Uncle Georges's machines.
Plot-lines also frequently involved the elegant but unseen Madame Pontaven who Doc repeatedly attempted to impress and invite to dinner with no success. Not all of the 96 episodes were produced in French.
List of Fraggle Rock characters There are four main intelligent anthropomorphic species in the Fraggle Rock environment: Fraggles, Doozers, Gorgs and Silly Creatures.

One of the main themes of the series is that, although the three species depend on the other for their survival, they usually fail to communicate due to vast differences in their biology and culture. The series mainly follows the adventures of five Fraggles with five personalities: Some of the character's names a film industry in-jokes.
For example, Uncle Travelling Matt is a reference to the travelling matte technique used with blue screen to give the impression a character is somewhere they're not; Gobo is named after a shaped metal grill placed over a theatre light to produce interesting shadows window shapes, leaves etc and Red is a reference to a redhead, another name for an w film light. Fraggles live a generally carefree life, spending most of their time they have a thirty-minute work week playing, exploring, and generally enjoying themselves.
They live on mainly radishes and Doozer sticks, made of ground-up radishes and the material with which the Doozers build their constructions. The Fraggles seek wisdom from Marjory the Trash Heap, who is located in a corner of the Gorg's garden. Marjory the Trash Heap is a large, matronly, sentient compost heap. According to her rat-like companions Philo and Gunge, the Trash Heap "knows all and sees all.

Within Fraggle Rock lives a second species of small humanoid creatures, the pudgy, green, ant-like Doozers. Doozers spend much of their time busily constructing all manner of scaffolding throughout Fraggle Rock, using miniature construction equipment and wearing hardhats and work boots.
To ensure they always have a steady stream of work, Doozers build their constructions out of an edible candy-like substance manufactured from radishes which is greatly enjoyed by Fraggles.
This is essentially the only interaction between Doozers and Fraggles; Doozers spend most of their time building, and Fraggles spend much of their time eating tasty Doozer buildings.
This pleases the Doozers, because not only is their work being enjoyed by someone, but if the Fraggles stop eating them, the Doozers will eventually run out of building space. Creativity is one of the few traits Fraggles and Doozers have in common. The Fraggles don't consider it stealing.
