Favorite Character on Fraggle Rock

Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by MokeynSprocket, Feb 24, 2006.

    Is it Mokey, Red, World's Oldest fraggle, Gungi, the Trash Heap (Margarie), Flex Doozer, Mr. Shibblefinnie (incorrectly spelled), Marlin, Junior, King of the Castle, Uncle Traveling Matt, or even Convincing John?


    Please give this question true thought! That is, please think of all episodes you have watched and actually name the character that you tend to focus on far more than any other character. Choose a character that tends to make you smile often, or a character that you simply find to be "FAR" more interesting than the others. This means, do not just choose a character because of his or her's popularity. For instance, if you love GOBO, then by all means, choose GOBO. Therefore, if you choose GOBO, then this means GOBO is truly your favorite. Follow your heart, not the bandwagon. I am looking for sincerity in your responces. Once again, choose the character that you love the most in your heart, not what everyone else feels who is the best. Main point is this, do not simply follow the bandwagon.

    OKAY... Suppose you were watching Fraggle Rock while really sleepy, and you became sleepy to the point you no longer watched, but simply listened to the episode. Your favorite character would be a character that would catch your attention enough for you to momentarily open your eyes to watch his or her scene for a few seconds. That is one example of choosing your favorite character.

    HERE GOES.. My favorite character on Fraggle Rock is SPROCKET..

    Seriously, I "LOVE" Sprocket. He is my favorite character on Fraggle Rock. Sprocket is the most interesting dog I have ever seen in my entire life. He is loving, funny, doesn't seem to bite (except for the time when he barked at his owner, and the episode when Sprocket caught Gobo by putting his fangs on his shirt), and is the most intelligent character on FRAGGLE ROCK. Then again, he has a scientist for an owner, so I'm sure that has something to do with it. Anyway, there is more to be stated about Sprocket, but I am a little sleepy. However, my point remains.. There is no one smarter than Sprocket on Fraggle Rock in my opinion (with maybe an exception of the scientist because of his wit of science, technology, and mathematics. Also, the scientist is human, so that would give him an educational advantage over animals, fraggles, doozers, and gorgs).

    Okay... Please write your top 3 favorite characters on Fraggle Rock, and briefly write about what makes him or her your TOP FAVORITE.. Please only write a brief explanation of why him or her is your number one favorite, you don't have to explain your reasons for your second and third favorite. Please only explain your reason for your number one favorite, but still list your top 3.

    My top three favorite characters on Fraggle Rock are:

    NUMBER ONE: Sprocket

    NUMBER TWO: Gungi (the Trash Heap's side kick).


    Thank you for posting.. I would really enjoy reading your responces and explanations. Take care!

    NUMBER ONE: The Gorgs as one collective "character"
    NUMBER TWO: The Trash Heap
    NUMBER THREE: Travelling Matt

    The reason I love the Gorgs so much is because the fact that we only ever see three of them is intriguing. We have an element of mystery regarding their species. Where are all the other Gorgs if they exist at all? If not what happened to the Gorg empire? If anything happens to Ma especially then Junior won't get a mate (hey it'd be necessary if there really are only three of them left) and they'd be extinct. And the Fraggles wouldn't be able to gather Gorg radishes but we're not really supposed to worry about this of course.
    And the other simple reason is the humorous chemistry between the Gorg family.

    My most Favorite is Cantus, Because Jim Did him, he could be serious, poetic, and silly at the same time.

    another favorite is Pa Gorg, He sounds like he's from the south, and he's my favorite color, purple.

    also another favorite was a tie between, The All Knowing Trash Heap (naah!), an any character that Terry Angus Did, I have great respect for Terry ever since i met him in Toronto, he is a Great puppeteer!!

    I think this is the hardest question that someone has asked me. But here goes:


    All three hold a special place in my heart. I chose Junior because number one he's care free and just funny. Everytime he comes on I seem to pay more attention. True he isn't very bright but he just brings joy to life. My favorite episode has to be the episode where he supposedly dies. He's just too cute in this episode. Plus I love how Richard did this voice and the story behind of how he came up with it. Also the person inside Junior is amazing and really did a good job for physical comedy.

    I remember liking Boober, he was funny the way he was always worried or annoyed or doing laundry. Actually, I watch him now and he reminds me of Squidward on Spongebob Square Pants.

    I must say that I like Mokey and Red because they are complete opposites from each other, yet they make a great pair. They're like the female Fraggle versions of Bert and Ernie. I also like Cantus and Convincing John because I see so much of Jim Henson in those two characters. Like Cantus, Jim was very wise and knowing, and he loved music. As for Convincing John, Jim tends to be just as pompous (but not dim-witted) as he is.

    Red Red Red Red Red

    Red Red Red Red!

    So much enthusiasm, so much joy, so much energy and vitality! She may not always know the best thing to do, and sometimes she asserts herself a little TOO much, but no one tries harder to make life full and free! You can never say she failed by holding back and not giving it everything she had. She's not afraid to have her own opinions and make them known, but she has a vulnerable side as well (see "I Want to Be You" and "Marooned," for instance). Yay Red!

    Second favorite: Sprocket
    Third favorite: Boober

  14. When I was younger I liked Red and Gobo. Now going back through Season one, I think Wembley and Boober are tied as my favorite Fraggles. My favorite character? Well like i said, it use to be Red and Gobo, now? For some reason, I can't explain, I like Ma Gorg. Their's something about her, I just totally dig. A sense of familiarity perhaps?

    I'm going to have to go with Cantus on this one... I think that Jim channeled himself through Cantus more than any other character.

    1) Wembly

    I love Wembly, cause he's just so funny! He's always popping about, not being able to decide on anything. He's a lot like me in that matter anyways.

    2) Junior Gorg

    He's cute, and...I don't know why, but that noise when he's walking or jumping about. That 'boing' noise has always caught my attention. Plus the way he talks is just so cyute!

    3) Pa Gorg

    He's an old southern bigot, who think's he's better then everyone else. I'm a southerner so it just clicks with me. That and he acts a lot like my Grandfather does, so it's just awesome.

    Cantus, because I believe the character was a big part of Jim Henson. The wisdom was profound and the character had this paternal light shining from him. Teaching, always, but gentle and strong at the same time.

    Wembley, because Steve Whitmire puts so much humour, innocence and warmth in the character plus I have a great love for all of the characters he voices and performs.

    Mokey, because I always felt closest to her on a basis of personality.
