Fraggle Parents?

Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by Squall Leonhart, Sep 20, 2007.

    Yep, she did. Here's the clip. It's at the 1:06 mark in this video:

    For more info:

    "The Storyteller gives a hint as to how Fraggles are born: she mentioned that Fedora Fraggle was "hatched," thus giving the impression that Fraggles come from eggs, like birds."

    Then of course we have the concept art by Michael Frith of Fraggles hatching from eggs. It's with the 3rd Season DVD set.

    Counterbalancing that, in "Mokey Then and Now" Boober says "Gobo's not even born yet." The Storyteller was talking about a mythic character in a first season ep and Boober was referring to a real person in a fourth/fifth season ep, so I'm inclined to go with the latter.

    Or maybe some Fraggles lay eggs and some give live birth? Fraggles are a very variable species. There are the standard Fraggle Rock Fraggles, furry-and-feathery Fraggles like Cantus, and aquatic Fraggles (the Merggles). Maybe, like snakes, some lay eggs and some don't.

    I mgiht have to watch it to find out.
    Although I do renember seeing a fraggle egg and it was beautiful.

    Terry Angus visits 'round these parts from time to time. I'd like to hear his take on it. Yeah, it was Richard Hunt performing the Storyteller in this episode, but still, he might have heard something discussed at one point.

    I could totally see Boober in the delivery room...er, cave, I guess, with his medical training and all.
  6. Slackbot Well-Known Member

    I could totally see Boober fainting in horror when things started happening in earnest. ;)
  7. Collgoff Well-Known Member

    What do you mean about that?
  8. Collgoff Well-Known Member

    That sound weird it could make me feel sick.
  9. Fraggline Active Member

    Hey, yeah, that's good reasoning. On the same note, I've sort of thought that Mokey was raised by her grandmother, who probably had an eye for nature and taught her to value life. It happened that way for Jim Henson, if I'm correct.
  10. Collgoff Well-Known Member

    What is the way for Jim Henson?
  11. Fraggline Active Member

    Oh, you see, I read once that Jim had a grandmother (who he called Dear) who inspired his artistic nature. She was always telling him to appreciate the beauties around him. 'Course, I could be getting this all wrong...I have a horrendously horrible memory.
  12. Collgoff Well-Known Member

    That's o.k. about that!
    But why Jim Henson and his family called his grandmother Dear?
  13. Fraggline Active Member

    Gee, I dunno. Maybe she was just so "dear" to them all? She sounded like a really sweet lady.
  14. Collgoff Well-Known Member

    I think so too!
  15. Rose Member

    Well if you want my opinion. I still think the Fraggles were born like humans or other mamles. I never really thought of it anyother way. The subject of birth has always been taboo beecauseof the nature of it. If you think of it would you really want to see a real Fraggle birth? I would think not, so thinking of that as sort of a mysterey makes it that much more interesting. Instead of having everything explained to you sometimes it's ok to have a bit of mystery it leaves more the to immagination. Instead of having one person's opinion about the story.
    And sorry to say I to do think Gobo's parent's or at least one of them for sure are no longer living. I believe Gobo's mother died giving birth to him, and this is going to sound weird but it makes sence if you analise the whose personality of Traveling Matt. I think he is his real father and not his Uncle. I think he had to keep who he really is a secret for the sake of protecting both their lives. Gobo didn't know for years 'till he found out when he had a child of his own who had the same strange mark that always looks odd to him but he didn't really think of it. It was just something that crossed his mind every now and again. Matt, Uncle Gobo, and even Wembley were born into a very secret Royal Society and they are born with a born with very uniqie birthmarks that only appear then a certan spell was cast. Only members of they Royal familey could see it if you didn't know the spell to make it appear. Ever seen any of them with no shirt? If not maybe that's the reason why.
  16. Collgoff Well-Known Member

    Well the world will never know!
    After all most people beleeive that Gobo's parents died in a cave in ,
    Trust me I know!
