    Hi all,

    Please can anyone help to identify this cute little Fraggle! He is part of a private collection owned by The Prop Store of London. I was lucky enough to get to see him earlier this week. He is amazing, as is being face to face to a real Fraggle!!

    Little is known about this Fraggle, there are three screen grab pics below, it is not known if he evr had a speaking part, or he may have changed identity, eye lids? Clothing?
    It looks like he may have been called Gaggle Fraggle!!

    Here are the pics of him

    That is really cool! Looks like it's in very good condition for being almost 30 years old.

    I don't think it is! The fur on the body is different and he has eye lids although I know these could have been added later!

    I'm pretty sure they did alter puppets from time to time. There was one yellow background Fraggle with a distinctive mouth shape at the beginning of the first season. He disappeared as of The Finger of Light, Marlon's first episode. Marlon has the exact same color, fur type, and mouth shape. I'm pretty sure they just gave him a new set of eyeballs, dressed him, and made a new character.
    My guess is that that's a background Fraggle, and if he was ever named the name wasn't used on the show.

    Hi

    No Muppet Danny, He's NOT for sale, if he was you would need lots of ££££££'s to get it!

    He was definetley a background character as you can see from the screen grabs above, I just need to find out what episodes there taken from??

    I have been informed from a reliable source that the head of this fraggle was used for the young storyteller inn the episode born to wonder, the eyes and hair are different but of course this can be changed!

    I also learnt an interesting thing! Gaggle fraggle is the term used to discribe a fraggle who can be changed for a new character. Muppets have whatnots, sesame have anything muppets and fraggle rock have gaggles! Taken from the same word used to describe geese!!
