Family of giant, shaggy creatures with a garden next to Fraggle Rock. Three of them are seen on the show: Pa Gorg, Ma Gorg and Junior Gorg. None of them are very intelligent and Junior's obsession with catching fraggles invariably lands him in hot water, though the entire family holds the notion that fraggles are vermin. Gorgs are not very nice. They're the muppet equivalent of trailer park trash and have the most distasteful personalities this side of Gargamel. But then every television show needs bad guys, especially those with cute fuzzy creatures.
The Gorgs' garden is the residence of Marjorie the rat-infested but nevertheless omniscient trash heap who serves as oracle for both Junior and the fraggles.
