Streaming on NBC and Peacock on Thanksgiving Day, experience Uncle “Travelling” Matt, the Fraggle explorer and Gobo’s uncle on Fraggle Rock, looking for holiday magic this season at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. On November 24, 2022, join Uncle Travelling Matt as he goes on an epic journey away from Fraggle Rock friends and family to learn the meaning of the “Macy’s Thanksgiving Day” holiday and the impossible-to-answer question: “what is a parade?”
Also announced, Apple TV+’s highly anticipated “Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock” Night of the Lights holiday special is out now! Jim Henson’s fun-loving and musical Fraggles including Gobo, Red, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and new Fraggle friends, have returned for all-new adventures. The special will be available to non Apple TV+ subscribers for special free windows from November 23 to November 27.
“It’s the Night of the Lights, the most Fraggily holiday of the year, and the Rock is filled with songs and cheer. When Jamdolin (voiced by Emmy Award nominee Daveed Diggs, “Hamilton”) encourages Wembley to make a special wish, the Fraggles head out on an adventure to find the brightest light and, maybe, the true meaning of the holiday.”
From The Jim Henson Company, the series is executive produced by Lisa Henson, Halle Stanford, John Tartaglia, Matt Fusfeld and Alex Cuthbertson. Dave Goelz and Karen Prell co-executive produce. Harvey Mason jr. serves as the executive music producer. The special is produced by Ritamarie Peruggi.
In addition to “Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock,” Apple’s partnership with The Jim Henson Company includes “Harriet The Spy,” the first animated adaptation of the iconic children’s novel; “Slumberkins,” the mixed-media puppet/2D animation program from the beloved children’s emotional learning brand empowering children to be caring, confident and resilient, that premiered November 4th; and the popular “Fraggle Rock: Rock On!” shorts.
Furthermore, Apple TV+ is the streaming destination for the original 1980’s “Fraggle Rock” series, as well as recently added bonus specials, “Down at Fraggle Rock,” “Doozer Music” and “Fraggle Songs,” all of which are now streaming.
