Fraggle Rock is a children's television series that was created by Jim Henson, primarily featuring a cast of Muppet creatures called Fraggles.

There was actually a very early demo opening sequence and theme song with additional lyrics that never aired. Terry Angus stated that the original opening "didn't explain the show very well... At that time everything was zipping by so fast they didn't show how everything was connected."

Description

In this version, the main five Fraggle characters bang the pipes near the Fraggle Pond (a la the Pipebangers), causing Doc to observe his water pipes. Gobo peeks out of the Fraggle Hole, is noticed by Sprocket, then rushes back to the Rock, singing about how great Fraggle Rock is. In one lyric, Boober notes that "Fraggle Rock is the spot where the job that you got is 'whoopie'!"

Availability

According to this link, an MP3 of the unaired theme was briefly available, but has since been long gone.

The unaired opening is most likely seen on the Dance Your Cares Away: Evolution of Fraggle Rock Theme Song documentary which is available on the Fraggle Rock: The Complete Final Season DVD. Neither the documentary nor the opening itself can be found online, though screenshots do exist.

I might order that DVD that has the documentary. Either that or it'll have to be a Christmas gift.

It might be more worthwhile to order the complete series collection, which has that documentary. I might do that.
