Fraggle Rock from 1983

Yes, it’s Jim Henson day on Skate and Annoy. Here’s a bit from the first season of Fraggle Rock, something I have admittedly not seen more than a few seconds of before now. My wife says she loved that show as a kid, but I married her anyway… It’s from a 1983 episode called the Garden Plot. A Fraggle Rock regular known as Traveling Matt makes a visit Venice Beach and takes a spin on some sort of weird Powell knock off deck. Check out the Carrot Top lookalike.

Thanks to Kevin for pointing the camera at the TV!


  1. That link doesn’t work if you don’t have an account on AOS, but he’s right. It’s a deck dated to 1981.

  2. yeh my wife spotted the board cause of my cab tattoo
    on my leg, she was like “it’s looks like your dragon”
    so i rewinded it with the pvr and taped that bit.
    love the chick in the jogging and tights . wow

  4. That is me, handing the board to Travellin Matt! My Neices said they saw it on TV in Louisiana. I never watched the show (Busy doing other things in Venice Beack, LOL) but I couldn’t get a copy till Jim Henson Died and his kids let the episodes go public. Good memories there!
