With a catchy theme tune and loveable characters, the Muppet-inspired show was a big hit when it launched in 1983.

It ran for 96 episodes until 1987 and featured a cast of puppet creatures including Fraggles, Doozers and Gorgs.

The carefree Fraggles spend most of their time playing, exploring and having fun while the smaller, more industrious Doozers spend most of their time building.

They live in fear of the Gorgs, who consist of Ma, Pa and Junior, who are always on the hunt to catch an elusive Fraggle.

And who could forget wise old Marjory the Trash Heap, who was always on hand for much needed advice.

Fraggle Rock kept children in the 80s entertained, and was broadcast in 95 countries.
