Written by Jerry Juhl

Doc boards up the Fraggle Hole.

Wembley and Red follow the wisdom of the Trash Heap.

While Gobo is in Outer Space looking for Matt's postcard, Doc decides to board up the hole in the wall leading to Fraggle Rock. While Gobo dodges Doc and Sprocket, his friends launch a rescue mission. Mokey and Boober work on breaking the boards, while Red and Wembley try to rescue him by following Marjory the Trash Heap's advice: "Don't cry over spilt milk."

Fraggle Facts

  • Gobo seems to know more about `Outer Space´ than his uncle. In this episode, Gobo mentions Santa Claus while trying to distract Sprocket, while later in the episode "Manny's Land of Carpets", Uncle Matt identifies a department store Santa as a magic wish-granting creature.


  • This episode marks the first appearance of the swoopfoomer.
  • During the mail call Doc receives a letter from Kermit, perhaps an inside reference to Kermit the Frog.
  • "Kick a Stone" is sung to the same tune as "The Way I've Got to Go" from the later episode "All Work and All Play."
  • While this is the tenth episode of the series, it was recorded in April 14, 1982 as the second. It's also the shortest episode of the series. Due to its length, it's the only episode that aired on The Hub to feature the full version of the opening sequence.
