As a kid, I always looked forward to Saturday. Not because I didn’t have school (I absolutely LOVED school) but because it meant Saturday Morning Cartoons!! As a child of the 80’s we had such amazingly radical children’s programs. From Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite, to Gem and She-Ra, The Snorks, and the less often remembered Shirt Tales & The Get Along Gang.
One my absolute favorites was Fraggle Rock. Jim Henson’s Gobo, Red, Boober, Wembley, Mokey, Uncle Traveling Matt, and of course the Doozers could keep me entertained for hours.
As an adult I am a bit of a “Children’s TV Snob” I don’t think anything on TV now is as awesome as what we watched back in the 80’s I want to share my favorites with Avery when she’s old enough!
And now, I’ll have my chance!!
Hulu has launched Jim Henson Family TV on Hulu Kids, which features 10 series from the Jim Henson collection, including the beloved and timeless series “Fraggle Rock.” With Jim Henson Family TV, families can relive the magic of the singing, adventurous and fun-loving Fraggles, as well as other favorite Henson characters, while teaching children valuable lessons about the world with music, comedy and lots of fun.
