Shortly before we moved to Chilé, I picked up a couple of Fraggle Rock DVDs from the bargain bin at Walmart for the kids. I was pleased to learn that they enjoyed the stories, songs, and silliness as much as I had when I was their age.
I got a huge kick out of seeing the old Apple computers in the background—these were same kind of computers I used to play Oregon Trail and Carmen San Diego on. So, I grabbed a couple of screenshots to share.
I remember that in an interview with series creator, Jim Henson, he described the program as the “happiest show” he ever created.
I’m convinced that this was at least partially due to the fact that they were using Apples. One can almost hear the jubilant expressions over the complete absence of MS-DOS based operating systems and drab IBM clones.
Do you remember Fraggle Rock or old Apple Computers? Share a favorite memory of either one (or both) in the comments below.
