Fraggle Rock
Air Date February 13, 1984
Written by Jocelyn Stevenson
Director George Bloomfield


When the traveling Minstrels make another visit, Mokey decides she's always wanted to be a Minstrel, too. She takes off with the Minstrels, but Cantus, their cryptic leader, makes her doubt that she really has the dedication to follow this path.

Meanwhile, Doc buys himself a saxophone and takes lessons from its instructions.

Fraggle Facts

  • There are four Minstrels who follow Cantus, but it's possible for other Fraggles to join as well. To become a Minstrel, they need to have ability and dedication, as well as the patience to put up with Cantus' tests.


  • This is the second and last of two episodes in which the credits are presented with a drop shadow (the other being "Wembley's Egg").
  • There's another Jim Henson reference in this episode: Cantus instructs Mokey in the way of the Minstrels, telling her that "All is all. Is is." This line, a parody of '60s-style cosmic wisdom, was intoned by the Monk (Jerry Nelson) in Henson's 1969 experimental TV program, The Cube.
