Annoying Characters

    Now, I will grant you that. You're right about the fact that Junior's character did seem to gain depth over time. I guess that's true of most of the characters in the series (Or any good series in general.) I can't say that isn't true. Like I've said numerous times, the guy serves his purpose, I guess, but it is a personal dislike I have for him. His personality and voice grate on my nerves. Sometimes I just want to yell at the TV "Stop being an idiot for 5 minutes so we can move this plot along already!"
    But his depiction as a lonely, misunderstood and sort of thick headed lug are actually spot on. There are a lot of people like him out there...So THAT part is cleverly written for sure!

    Okay, how about this guy for another one that gets on my nerves...

    Roosevelt Franklin.

    Awww...I'm sorry. :( But if you look in the Hensonville thread 90% of my posts have Robin in them. So you'll obviously see I love Robin. ;)

    Why sorry? It's just a joke.
    And about the Hensonville thread, it's so long I don't even bother to read it. Maybe for another day…

    And carl just eats stuff, and talks loud. And is somebody for it.

    But Carl is the essence of all monsters, a big hungry lump that'll eat anything. Not to mention Animal, whom also eats stuff ( less often ) and talks loud, is mainstream.

    Alright, not to harp on the Gorg thing but I do have something to add about that.
    So I rewatched some episodes of Fraggle Rock and it came to 'The Gorg Who Would Be King.' Despite myself, I did actually warm up to him a little more in this episode. I wont say I like the guy. I still find him annoying, over all, but in this particular episode there was a real sweetness and gumption in him that comes out this episode. I liked that. ^_^

    But aside from that, my opinion stands.

    One of my favorite lines in the series: "Oh Daddy, you don't anything about being king. Or you would never have dropped that bomb..."

    It's the whole bomb moment I actually really coudn't help but like him. Well that and when he kind of put together how everything was tied in together. Growing radishes, making doozer sticks and eating radishes. That was pretty astute for old block head there. But the way he was so frantic to get the bomb out of there was pretty touching. I liked him alot then.

    I always thought Rizzo was kinda annoying. All he seems to do is eat and make snarky comments. His voice gets to me sometimes, too.

    Nah,I don't think someone is ,,annoying"...I like them all!

    I like to think that he's a representation of Jim Henson's classic muppets, because he eats everything. Jim loved two things in muppets, eating and explosions.

    Ok,I don't agree with the most on this thread.Bunny has his really cute moments and piggy is very great!Animal's overrated,I like Janice the most.But that's not annoying!!I think,Pepe can be annoying,but not always.I think some monsters can be REALLY annoying.Like..they always eat someone and that was it!!What is that funny about that??

    Elmo..ugh..he was also in my childhood.*shudders*

    BTW:Is big bird a girl?!?! Or a boy?!?
