Supporting cast

International Versions:

UK Version: P.K. moves into the Lighthouse and doesn't expect Sprocket to be a dog. As P.K. is organizing his belongings, Sprocket causes mischief as the two don't get along. 


  • This marks the first episode in the UK co-production of John Gordon Sinclair as P.K., the Captain's nephew. The year before, Fulton Mackay, who had played the Captain, passed away. His absence was explained by having the Captain return to his "first love" (the sea).
    • This UK version of this episode has a unique intro, in that the view of the lighthouse interior as the camera moves into the Fraggle hole shows Sprocket alone.
