After successfully trapping Mokey Fraggle and Red Fraggle during their radish gathering, Junior Gorg is visited by Wander McMooch, an evil toad who plans to create a housing development on the Gorgs' land. When McMooch persuades Junior to sell the Gorgs' Castle in exchange for fake Peas of Power, the Gorgs are forced to leave their home. Now the Gorgs' only way to reclaim their castle lies in the unlikely help of Mokey and Red.
- As the old Gorg legend has it, a Gorg prince has to grow his bride by planting the Peas of Power, which will turn into a Gorg princess when the first rays of dawn hit them.
- Gorgs live a very long time. Junior's age is revealed in this episode.. 453! But even Junior is confused as to his exact age, later (in the same episode) saying he is 473.
- This episode is the first appearance of Wander McMooch, a villain who pops up again in episode 307. He also makes a cameo appearance in The Muppet Christmas Carol, as one of the guests at Fred's Christmas Day celebration.
- Mokey and Red are the only main Fraggles to appear in this episode. Jerry Nelson and Steve Whitmire still perform their other characters (Pa Gorg and Sprocket) but there are no characters performed by Dave Goelz.
- This is the second episode to have only two main Fraggles. The first was "The Trash Heap Doesn't Live Here Anymore".
- This episode is notable in that no postcard from Uncle Travelling Matt is presented.
