While Doc spends his days coming up with new ideas, Sprocket is peering into a large hole in the baseboard. He knows that something lives behind the wall. Through the hole and down the tunnel, hidden from everyday reality, are brightly lit caves filled with wonderful creatures. This land, bound together by Magic, is called Fraggle Rock. The most notable of the creatures who inhabit this beautiful place are the Fraggles. Fraggles are furry, have tails, and come in all sorts of colors.

When Wembley convinces Gobo to go after him, they find a scary wooden statue of a Fraggle. When Matt accidentally hits it, they both fall through the floor and happen upon a whole new cavern with dozens of tunnels.

When she goes to the Trash Heap for a paintbrush, Marjorie gives her a magical paintbrush that, when used for the wrong reasons, takes control of the Fraggle using it. Mokey doesn't consider herself the jealous type, but she's proven wrong when she tries to out-paint Pedley and she can't seem to let go of the brush. Mokey needs to find a way to get the brush to quit controlling her, and realize why she loved painting in the first place.
