Red Fraggle is one of the five main Fraggles in Fraggle Rock. She is yellow; her hair is red, with yellow and orange highlights, and is always in big pigtails. She usually wears a red sweater and has the most hair of any Fraggle. Each pigtail is tied with a small pink bow partially hidden within the hair.

Red is athletic and energetic. She likes to think of herself as the fastest and strongest Fraggle in the Rock. She is highly competitive with her friends, which sometimes causes extreme interpersonal problems, especially with Gobo Fraggle (though she has admitted that, despite their constant competition, she secretly admires him).[1] Red also has her share of insecurities; she especially hates to admit her mistakes.

Red loves sports, especially diving and swimming. Her job is to clean the pool in the middle of Fraggle Rock. She also teaches swimming classes, and considers herself an expert at rock hockey.

Red shares a room with her best friend Mokey Fraggle, yet doesn't get along very well with Mokey's plant Lanford. Red later strikes up a friendship with Cotterpin Doozer. She is particularly loath to listen to Uncle Traveling Matt's postcards.

In "The Secret Society of Poohbahs," it is revealed that Red is a member of the Poobahs, serving as the Mind-Reader.

Red is the first Fraggle that Kermit and Robin meet when they visit Fraggle Rock in A Muppet Family Christmas. She later reappears with the other Fraggles during the Muppets performance of "The Holly and the Ivy."

She also was part of a group of Muppets who sang "Just One Person" at Jim Henson's memorial service.

Starting in 2008, Karen Prell began making live appearances with Red at various events. Red also appeared in promos for cable network the Hub while it broadcast Fraggle Rock.
