Fraggle Rock: The honk of honks


Running length: 25  minutes


For details about this item, see the Libraries' Catalog »



Gobo wanders into Doc's laboratory in the world of "outer space" above the caves of Fraggle Rock. Gobo is invisible to Doc but Doc's dog, Sprocket, sees him. When Gobo returns to Fraggle Rock he is told by Cantus, the Fraggles spiritual leader, that he has been chosen to honk the "honk of honks," the signal needed for the Fraggles to sing the "song of songs." Gobo sets out to find the honk of honks, and collects parts of it from the Trash Heap, the Doozers, and the Gorgs, but is disappointed when he discovers that it is still incomplete. Cantus offers Gobo spiritual guidance, and only after an emotional encounter with Doc does Gobo find the missing piece.
