    I've always thought that Gobo's hats were neat because he wore such a variety of them. Does anyone know which episodes he wore one in? I'd like to look those up. Also, does anyone know where I can hear the song, "The Rock Goes On"? I haven't heard this song since I was five. If anyone can give me a link to go to to listen, that'd be awesome! And have a great day, everyone! :)

    I like it when people are really observative. They ask all the questions either I'm afraid to ask or ones I'd never think of asking. Unfortunatley, I can't answer your question either on acount of I haven't seen Fraggle Rock since I was like, five.

    Sorry about the questions, but since I'm in college and the only one in the family who has a computer, my brother who has downs syndrome and loves fraggle rock and muppet show has my mom write down questions and he sends the questions to me...I try to spread out the questions so they're not all in one day. My brother's a real thinker! I kinda agree with you on that note, Baby Sinclair. Sorry once again...He watches it a lot and that's one way we connect as brothers. He keeps me young.

    That's kinda cool of you to do. My cousin has downs and she can be alot like that at times, too. But because she's only four, she'd rather mimic things or tell people what to do.

    Jeepers. Gobo wears hats in so many episodes. I think the only way to find out is to watch them all and take notes.

    Hmmm... some hats of note for Gobo would be like... the derby with the feather sticking out the top that seemed to have started out as part of his new look when it was introduced in " We Love You Wembley ". I think that's the only hat that ever makes it into photo shoots and onto a few of the Gobo toys like that little Gobo time-piece figure and the Schleich PVC figure. ( Both of which should be in the Fraggle Collectibles archive ).

    Another note-worthy hat in the G's wardrobe would be the knit stocking hat he wore in " A Friend In Need " since it played into the plot of that episode and was actually commented on as it wound up in Sprocket's maw. " Here lies Gobo's hat " * bawls * I think that's the same hat that he wears during the.... three times we see him in winter garb ( which would be " The Bells of Fraggle Rock ", the " Goodtime Goomba Soup " episode and during the fraggles' appearance in " The Muppet Christmas .... thing at Fozzi's Grandmother's house ". I'm a little rusty on my titles ).

    I dunno what one would call the hat he wore in " The Grapes of Generosity " but it had it's time in the spotlight when he stuffed grapes under it to hide them from Mokey ( who in turn wanted to get the pattern for the hat due to it's odd shape from having being stuffed with grapes ). That's also the episode wear you can see Gobo with his cheeks stuffed with grapes. Hee hee.

    Another cool hat of Gobo's is the one he has on in " Gobo's School For Explorers ". I dunno what the technical name for it is though but it's that tan & kinda leathery-looking hat with the long flaps that cover the back of his head down to his shoulders. I believe he was wearing that hat briefly in the toe tickler episode when it was discovered that Mokey was blocked inside that cavern with the hole in the ceiling. It's a sort of hat you'd see some one wear while riding a camel.

    Heck, if I keep going, I may end up listing them all. Heh heh. Eeeesh.
