Fraggle Facts

  • The Pebble Pox is the most contagious of all Fraggle diseases. The symptoms in a severe case of the disease include fever, frizzy fur, ticklish teeth, aching tail, and an itchy, red rash appearing on the fur, not unlike measles, chicken pox, scarlet fever, or any human disease with a rash as a symptom.
  • Doogan Berry Tea is given to Fraggles with the Pebble Pox.

International Versions

  • UK: Sprocket has caught a cold, and P.K. makes fun of him while boasting he has never been sick. However P.K. soon also falls ill, and feels guilty when Sprocket offers him a handkerchief and apologizes.
