Fraggle Rock
Air Date March 16, 1987
Written by Laura Phillips
Director Terry Maskell


According to Gorgic tradition, when the last leaf falls off the Nirvana Tree, the old King must step down and let a new King take over. Junior isn't ready to be King, so when the tree is down to one leaf, he eats it to keep it from "falling". This shrinks him down to Fraggle-size, which gives him a whole new perspective on the Universe that he's going to rule.

Meanwhile, Doc and Sprocket go camping in the woods.


  • According to this episode, Pa Gorg has ruled the Universe for 742 years. Assuming a literal timeline, this would place the beginning of his reign in 1245.
