You know, Jim Henson said that Fraggle Rock was designed to help bring peace on earth. I bet a lot of people think that that’s junk, but if you really watch some of the episodes (some more than others, of course) you can see that the show really does go deep. Go download episode 17, Marooned (ed2k link), and see what I mean.

The Friendship Song from that episode is a great example of how it can get pretty heavy (listen for how Red struggles, running low on oxygen). Another that I’ve discovered recently is Goodbye from the episode Mannys Land of Carpets (ed2k link).

Time to say goodbye to your home
Places you’ve known
Heart like a stone as you go
Time to scramble down from the dream
List rock and stream
Golden and green while you grow
Goodbye, goodbye
And every eye is dry
Leaving, there’s no breathing
Just a rainbow in the sky
Goodbye, goodbye

Time to say goodbye to our own
To our only home
Only place we’ve known like a glove
Every dream we’ve dreamed happened here
Laughter and tears
Moments and years that we loved
Goodbye, goodbye
And every eye is dry
Leaving there’s no breathing
Just a rainbow in the sky
Goodbye, goodbye

But then again, I appreciate the Muppets on a much deeper level than you (Thanks Meghan).
