    Which Gobo did you like best? The first one, with the jacket, or the second one, with the vest (and shorter hair)?

    2nd Gobo, the vest really makes him look like a young explorer.

    New Gobo. He has something more mature, more "respectful".

    I really like that he started out young in the original series and grew up slowly... first wearing a weird little hat, and then becoming the Gobo we all know and love.

    Yep, li'l older Gobo. :) He's just, like, "classic Gobo".


    He is!


    But yeah, like the others have said, more mature, fits even better with the voice, looks better, etc. :)

    How aboot that early Gobo eh? ;)

    Yeah, Gobo really did a good job filling that requisite roll of the leader...I personally thing Gobo is Jerry's best character ever. I know officially Floyd is his signature character, but Gobo is my fave of his..second would have to be Scred from Saturday Night Live's Land of Gorch!
  6. i liked the 2nd gobo wen he had the vest.. it jus made him seem more like a ..."kid".... then when he had the jacket..

    I wonder: was he meant to have a little Canadian in him?

    I guess i just got accustomed to the second Gobo. It was around longer than the first one.

    According to some of the behind the scenes paperwork and press kits I've purchased through eBay, there was mention that Gobo was supposed to kind of sound like " our friends up north " from the show's conception.

    Not only does Gobo do the " eh " thing all the time ( which is just freakin' keen ) but if ya listen to certain canadian accents, he also pronouces some words in the same fashion. This may be why he sometimes pronounces the word " again " as " a-gane ".

    And to answer the original question of this thread, the second Gobo is what got me into this series. I like the first one although, a few of the puppets of the original Gobo are a tad on the ugly side..... like that bird-looking version that appears throughout the " 30 Minute Work Week " episode which I guess was the first one ever taped.

    Anyway, the second Gobo's attire gives him a more cool and in-charge feel. I guess had a major personality change between... what was it... " Finger of Light " and... oh... what's that one called ... " We Love You Wembley " (?). Perhaps he had a coming of age experience in between those two episodes. That would make a good " lost " episode plot.

    Anyway, the second Gobo is my favorite. I like his vest darn it....... & we need a Gobo " emoticon ". I'll just use Scooter since he's the closest thing. ;)

    I want a Red Fraggle 1 too!!
  13. Foodie

    Foodie Well-Known Member

    Actually, the fraggles would make great emoticons.

    Red = angry

    Wembley = confused

    Mokey = lovey-dovey

    Boober = sad or nervous

    Gobo = happy or confident... he'd make a good " wink " actually

    Travelling Matt = he could be the regular happy face

    Junior Gorg = dumb or embarrassed

    Ma Gorg = surprised or scared

    I guess I could go on. ;)
