Gobo's "eh"...

Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by Redsonga, May 17, 2008.

    I've watched the first three seasons a few times now (in " OMG I have boxsets now!" fashion) and picked up that Gobo has a habit of saying "eh". It makes me wonder if Fraggle Rock is just a little bit in Canada or not ;)?

    I think Jerry Nelson actually talks about this on the special features somewhere in the season one box. Or I remember hearing this from Nelson somewhere...

    I don't think he specifically talks about the "eh" thing in Season One, though he does demonstrate it. Maybe he's talked about it somewhere else though!

    Here's why. Where was Fraggle Rock filmed? hense why he has an odd Canadian accent.

    I think Jerry described Gobo as a "Canadian Hero" or soemthign like that on one of the bonus featues.

    Fixed accordingly.

    Pooh, you're just getting picky; all the scene IN Fraggle Rock were filmed in Canada so there wasn't anything wrong with what DrTooth said.

    Yes Red, it was filmed in Toronto, and I've spotted some signage in the background of a few Travelling Matt spots that shows which ones of those segments were filmed in Canada too!

    And to Jerry's credit, he is pretty good about getting Gobo's "eh" in the right spots ;) :smirk:

    Yeah, I just went through the special features and he never even mentions it! I must've heard it somewhere else...

    True, but a lot of the interwoven human & Sprocket segments were done in respective countries.

    I never said he wasn't ;). I even make a point have it be a part of his character in my fanfic, since it seems like many people overlook it...
    It would be funny if Doc actually lived right next to the border somewhere...

    Who knows? But seeing as Doc & Sprocket moved in the finale, their location obviously changed.

    Of course, but the magic makes travel to anywhere very short :excited:

    wwfpooh New Member

    Yep. :D I wonder which desert Doc & Sprocket would've moved to if they WERE in Canada?

    But Doc lived in New England somewhere (before the move to AZ), right? The Fraggles have mentioned some caves are days away from their rooms. I imagine FR to be quite extensive, like how ant colonies can take up acres. It's not that hard to imagine that Gobo was originally from a section of the Rock under Canada.

    I didn't think they ever said where Doc lived to start with :confused:
    Of course, I don't know much about the world, I've lived in California my whole life, so I am not good at picking up hints about other parts of the US *lol*:)
  17. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh New Member

    Point taken. But the trip to AZ must've taken a billion, trillion days!
  18. Redsonga

    Redsonga Active Member

    It didn't have to, since certain tunnels are magic ;).
  19. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh New Member

    Point taken. ^_^
