    No way! Well, he did an incredible job as Gobo, after all, he is a big fan of Fraggle Rock so this went hand in hand. His performance as Gobo is nearly dead-on, keep up the good work, John!

    And his chemistry with Karen/Red is perfect too. I wouldn't mind John being the official Gobo now. In fact, I hope it's permanent.

    They just need a project for the Fraggles to be in.

    (Off topic... anyone else think that the Doozers cartoon, if not getting on PBS, should go to The Hub?)

    Oh yeah, I sort of remeber him now. I researched he was Princeton from Avenue Q. Heh! Then, my question is, "Why do all of us FR fans think Gobo is like the Princeton kind of guy. I mean he has his street smarts, right? I didn't mean to get off topic, but then I was also thinking the bad idea bears remind of Philo & Gunge. Either good or bad advice, those rats do try to help the Fraggles (that would include Gobo, eh?) Okay, back to your regular FR topic program

    What remains to be seen is how well he can do Gobo's singing. Of course, there's no doubt that John is a fantastic singer, but I sure hope that he can bring that certain sound quality in his voice that Jerry brought.

    I hope that Gobo's going to be active enough for us to find out about his singing voice, as opposed to only being around for a promo here and a lip-synched video there.

    Last year at Dragon*Con, when I was walking around with my Janken puppet, someone told me that Henson was doing something with the Fraggles. I told them that I'd heard about the movie, and that it was stalled out in development heck. No, she said, a TV show. I said I'd heard about the Doozer show, and it seemed to have the same problem. No, she said, a Fraggle show. I told her that I'd have to see that to believe it, but I'd sure like for my skepticism to be proven wrong. Normally I'd just discount this as some fan's wishful thinking, but at the same con a guy came up to me and, in the same matter-of-fact tone told me about a Fraggle project he had been working on. A music video. Of course, I told him that that would be neat, but I'd have to see it to believe it. He accepted that and said that he couldn't tell me any more, but it'd be released in a few weeks. And a few weeks later the Ben Folds Five video appeared!

    So...who knows? Gobo might need to warm up his vocal cords after all.

    A new Fraggle promo just appeared on the Hub website (and presumably is airing on TV now) called Ask a Fraggle, where Gobo and Red answer viewer questions ranging from Doozer towers to Bronies :smirk: :excited:

    Well I really like it but I have one question!
    What's a Bronie?

    A Brony is a fan who is in love with the show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic on The Hub. Surprisingly, most of the fans of this show are male.

    "Bronies" is the plural form of "Brony". You spelled "Brony" wrong. That's all.

    Fun video! Great to see Fraggles in action!

    And completely baseless speculation here, but I think that Fraggle Rock must be returning on a semi-permanent basis to the schedule, because this seems like a lot of promos to make for a single marathon.
