King Seeley Thermos Fraggle Rock lunchbox
The King Seeley Thermos Fraggle Rock lunchbox is a vintage collectible lunchbox based on the 1980s children’s television show ‘Fraggle Rock’.
Fraggle Rock is a children’s puppet show produced by Muppets creator Jim Henson. It told the story of a race of creatures called Fraggles, who live underground alongside a smaller race of creatures known as Doozers, and their adventures throughout the caves, tunnels and even the human world above them.
The show originally ran for five seasons and 96 episodes from 1983 until 1987, and was a worldwide success with separate introduction scenes being filmed for audiences in different countries. A lunchbox featuring the characters was first produced by King Seeley Thermos in 1983.

The box has grey borders designed to resemble the walls of a cave, with a beige plastic handle and graphics on each side featuring photographs of the show’s characters.
The front of the box features the characters Gobo, Mokey, Red, Wembley and Boober, along with one of the Doozers. The back of the box shows a large construction built by the Doozers, along with tiny transportation vehicles and scaffolding. Gobo is also seen, eating some of the Doozers’ edible construction.
The bottom of the box shows Gobo and Wembley speaking to Marjory the Trash Heap, whilst the top panel features an image of Gobo’s Uncle ‘Traveling’ Matt. The sides shows images of one of the Gorgs, and the dog Sprocket.
The matching thermos flask is red, with the show’s title logo and an illustration of a Doozer wearing his utility belt and safety helmet.
