Did Jareth change Toby's diaper?

Discussion in 'Fantasy Worlds' started by Monsoon, Jun 2, 2008.

    Okay, we all know Toby must've needed his diaper changed at least once, and he must've needed food.

    Since all the goblins are idiots, I'm guessing Jareth had diaper duty, and I doubt he got his royal hands on some Huggies or Pampers. But, maybe he did.

    Not to mention Toby must've needed at least one nap. Makes me wonder just how well Toby was looked after.

    Of course he did, in fact I think one of the things that made Jareth so sexy was how good he seemed to be with a baby :).
    As far as diapers go, cloth diapers are hundreds of years older than the fancy store bought ones that most people use now. I'm sure he just used the old fashion type with a leather diaper cover :).
    As far as naps go, I can just picture the two of them all cozy together as father and future goblin son..Sooo cute :D!

    He did apparently have bottles of milk on hand.

    Well...as disturbing as I can imagine that would be, I'm sure he was on diaper duty, yes. He probably sang him to sleep, as well. Maybe the diapers went to the bog of Eternal stench?

    He had control over his whole world so I think getting things would be easy :)

    I would think little Toby was well looked after seeing that Jereth was a Goblin king looking after Toby was all too easy for him. Just a wave of his hands provided the little darling with everything he needed encluding a quiet comfortable place to have his naps. :)

    I don't think Jareth would at all. He doesn't seem the type. He likes Toby and wants to have him, but I don't really think there's a love or fatherly feeling there. He uses him to get to Sarah, and doesn't know how to handle him when he cries.

    He wasn't the type initially, but the kid does start to grow on him. We start off with Toby in the center of the throne room and by the time Sarah gets there, he's all huggy.

    I would guess, though, that he'd just get goblins to go and steal groceries and stuff from our world.

    If this is a discussion concerning the manga, then I can't exactly say what's what beause I haven't really read it much. I've seen a glimpse of it (I dislike anime greatly).

    However, if this concerns the movie itself...
    I'm game.

    He may have been fond of the child, but I'm sure he wasn't SO fond that he'd change his diapers. Hmm, maybe Jareth sent over a more experienced goblin (female, I should assume) to care for the child.

    In caring for Toby there must have been enough baby-care supplies since Jareth must've planned out his scheme before having sent Sarah hurling over to the Labyrinth.

    Jareth is a rather intelligent character...

    I'm sure he was prepared.

    XD *Imagines him poking the child curiously*

    Something I noticed is that Jareth was really careless with Toby. When he threw Toby around during the Magic Dance number, he didn't even bother to catch him at least once, leaving a goblin to catch him instead. This could imply that he did not hold Toby in high regards. Though this could also just be an example of his magic powers, and that he knew Toby would not be injured.

    That being said, I don't think Jareth would be the ideal father figure of the year, that's for sure. That's not to say that he didn't have good intentions as far as Toby was concerned, but I don't think he really knew what he was doing.

    Anime and manga are not the same thing. Not trying to start something or anything. Just as a sequential artist myself (of cartoony comics, not manga per se) I just had to put that out there. I'm a nitpicky nerd when that is concerned. :insatiable:

    xP LOL! Thank you for correcting me, Baby Gonzo.
    That's actually a good thing! :D

    It saves me from flammage. ;P

    *GLOMP*

    I think it all depends on how you veiw Jareth. I've never seen him as a cruel character..Set in his ways maybe, but not without the ability to love.
    But then ,I was never a fan of Sarah :coy:

    And he was just like a new parent of course he didn't know what to do when he cried sometimes :p

    Jareth strikes me as the type of person who wants to have nice things (like, say, a baby) but leaves the caring for it to someone else. You know? Have a goblin feed and change Toby, and he might play with him when the fancy strikes him, but otherwise it's not his job (in Jareth's head, anyway).

    Well, I know some real parents that are the same way but I don't really see them as evil for it :coy:
    *pictures parenting classes in the labyrinth*
    *lol*

    Jareth is just entertained by Toby.
    XP

    In my opinion, I think Jareth just views him as a toy.
    Like an old rag doll--since we see him bounce Toby around like one and all.

    But he is magical :)! He can do whatever he wants and never hurt Toby IMHO :)...I'm sure he has mastered gravity already :coy:

    This may be my inner fangirl talking but you are SOO right!
    *Giggles* XD
    What can't Jareth master? XD

    *AHEM*

    I mean...
    o_o...

    *Returns to her more mature self...*
    *Oh yeah, she has none* XD

    I did not see Labyrinth until I was 19, believe me, I am on the same page as you :3.
    Being only a little older than Toby IRL and not seeing the movie until I was a teenager has given me a dislike for Sarah and a fangirl-ish love of Jareth ;)

    I thought I was the only one who disliked Sarah!
    Oh, I'm not INSANE!

    She's really beautiful, but she makes teenagers look overly...emo...and...and...she REJECTED Jareth! D:

    Dude...<3

    That's messed up.

    LOL!

    I just hate the whole 'leave your imagination behind if you want to be truly grown up you must be jaded and there is no happy ever after' feeling the movie left me with Sarah...
    I didn't feel like she really changed besides being able to share things and that Jareth really did change in the end but she just saw everything as a dream and rejected him :p Grr... Of course, I go with the idea that 'the labyrinth is real and is very effected by a visitors mindset' more than the 'Sarah's dream' idea :\.
