Episodes where you could totally feel for a charachter

    Were there ever any moments on Fraggle Rock when you could just totally feel for one of the Fraggles or charachters, because you had been through a similar situation in your life before? These are some times I could feel for a charachter

    Wembley in The 30 minute work week. I know how it feels to be in between jobs while everyone else has found their place in the world, and people are on your back to find a job.

    Wrench Doozer in Doozer is as Doozer does. I remember when I was in High School, feeling the same kind of peer pressure to drink, and doing it to go along with the crowd, and getting sick just like Wrench did from "Flooping"

    Gobo in Gobo's Discovery: I have felt just like Gobo did in this episode. Being confused about who I am and what my purpose is. When he sings that song "Once upon a time I knew my name" I can totally understand the meaning of it, and I know exactly how Gobo feels when he's singing it.

    The one I could relate to was Change Of Address where Ned had to move to the desert and Doc thought he was goign to loose his best friend. And Gobo said to him as he held onto Doc's hand. " Don't worry I'm sure things are going to be allright. " And well he kind of reminded me of myself always being there for someome who needs a shoulder to cry on so to speak.

    I have always been able to relate to Red in I Want to be You. There have definitly been points in my life where I felt like there was nothing special about me and really wanted to change and be someone else. I can really feel for her in the song Dreaming of Someone. I've been there.

    For me, it's Wembley in 'Gone But Not Forgotten.' I know how hard it is to loose a friend.:cry:

    Funny, I have empathized for every one of the Fraggle Five. Does that make me crazy? Probably.

    Gobo: Gobo's Discovery. I probably shouldn't be admitting this willy-nilly, but at this time in my life I really feel the way he did in this one, especially the lyrics for Once Upon a Time (I Knew My Name). That song has been running through my head for days now.

    Red: The Garden Plot. Specifically, the song Afraid to be Afraid. "Why am I afraid to cry? And why am I so proud?" This is one aspect of Red's personality that I can really identify with--being extremely hesitant to show what I construe as weakness, which includes crying.

    Mokey: Mokey's Funeral. I know how it feels when you feel like nobody appreciates your work. (On a more whimsical note, I also know how it feels to be so caught up in one's silly fantasies that one does not realize the negative repercussions of the dreamt-of scenarios.)

    Wembley: We Love You, Wembley. Especially the song Help Me For a Change. I can still remember vividly a lesson we had in third grade about there being three types of people: passive, assertive, and aggressive, and realizing that I was passive, and to this day I'm still often too busy helping others to do what I want to do for a change.

    Boober: I Don't Care. Unlike the other three, my empathy in this one is not based so much upon my own experiences, but only because Boober is one of my favorites and it seems to me that he is such an overlooked character that at times I really feel sorry for him and would like to give him a big hug and make him lunch. "Why not let Boober be the doormat? You can walk all over Boober! You can spill blueberry juice on his blanket!" That line just broke my heart. *pats Boober plushie*

    That is me too. I think that episode is why I identified with Wembley so much as a child...and still do :smirk:

    That's awful. I had a dog that had to be put to sleep last year. But then we got a new dog at the shelter. It couldn't replace my old dog, but I still love him. I think it's best to remember the funny things your deceased love ones did.

    I know it was awful! But what was your old dog's name?

    Believe or not it was Rowlf after our piano playing friend, but I thought it was pronounced Ralph. :sympathy:

    Gobo's Discovery: I could definitely relate to Gobo when he wasn't sure if being an explorer is the right path for him. When I failed two classes during my sophomore year of college, I felt stuck. Should I continue my with my major or move in another direction? So far, I'm sticking to my major and doing much better, at least so far.

    I want to be you: I felt like Red at times, wanting to be someone different and do something else. But I like being...well, me!

    Gone, but not forgotten: I know what it's like to lose a family member and some pets my family had.

    Brush with Jealousy: I felt like Mokey in this episode, being jealous of others because they have a talent that I don't have or they're smarter than I am in some aspects. Most notably, several of my friends were in my high school show choir and I wasn't. I auditioned three years in a row and never got in, I could nail the dance portion, but the singing portion I was never good at. I was happy for my friends, but I wanted to be part of that group, but never got the opportunity.

    Well I feel like the way Gobo sometimes like eather I want to be a performer or a puppeteer or an artist or anything,

    I do lost some pets and family nembers before: when uncle Chuck died I felt bad about it but my dad (Phil Goff) he was one who felt bad the most,
    I was 16 years old when that happened!

    Well jeaclousy was the tuff thing when I in junor high as a cheerleader.
    When the other cheerleaders would let one of them flying and I did want to do that.
    But I had a chance because I was too big!
