Red Fraggle is one of the five main Fraggles in Fraggle Rock. She is yellow and her hair is red with yellow and orange highlights which is always in big pigtails. She usually wears a red sweater and has the most hair of any Fraggle.
Red is athletic and energetic. She likes to think of herself as the fastest and strongest Fraggle in the Rock. She is highly competitive with her friends, which sometimes causes extreme interpersonal problems, especially with Gobo Fraggle (though, as revealed in a recent SFX interview, despite their constant competition, she secretly admires him).
Red also has her share of insecurities; she especially hates to admit her mistakes.
Red shares a room with her best friend Mokey Fraggle yet doesn't get along very well with Mokey's plant Lanford. Red later strikes up a friendship with Cotterpin Doozer. She is particularly loath to listen to Uncle Traveling Matt's postcards.
Red is the first Fraggle that Kermit and Robin meet when they visit Fraggle Rock in A Muppet Family Christmas. She later reappears with the other Fraggles during the Muppets performance of "The Holly and the Ivy."
Starting in 2008, Karen Prell began making live appearances with Red at various events. Red also appears in a promo for the new network The Hub, where she is seen holding up the logo and laughing.
