Lordsburg, New Mexico

Fraggle Rock

The outcropping is graffitied with the name of the beloved musical Muppet television series. 

Six miles west of Lordsburg, New Mexico is the Fraggle Rock, a heavily graffitied rocky hill. It’s named for the words painted on its side in crisp, bold letters.

Sightings of this monument to the Muppet-related television program date at least back into the 1990s. It’s unknown whether someone maintains the lettering on the side of the hill, as the text has remained clearly legible despite the passage of time. The lonely outcropping of rock is easily visible from the highway, where it stands out among the stretches of dry, flat terrain.

The original Fraggle Rock is a live action puppet television series. It debuted in 1983 and became a much beloved series among its British, American, and Canadian audiences. Episodes typically included at least two or three original songs.

Sadly, there are no musical muppets moseying around the New Mexico rock.
