How is a Fraggle born? Where do Fraggles come from?

    I just had to ROFL on this. "Welcome to the Rock!" BOOOM! Way to welcome newborns -- by deafening them! LOL. :D

    Hmm...maybe they are! Anything is possible in the Fraggle World! :)

    I guess I could extend this ridiculous story by adding that maybe they had tiny baby Fraggle sillynoise-muffs. Which actually brings us to another question, how do the Fraggles hear without ears? :confused:

    Well, their aquatic natures may have given them something akin to snake or frog ears ... a drum on the surface. After all, external ears would create needless drag (though, their googly eyes are still a problem ... maybe that is why Boober and others have none?).

    I think he has them farer up on his head than over fraggles and they are so keen he can see pass his hair :3. But in my mind there is more than one breed of fraggle, and Boober's kind are a bit like sheepdogs, you would think they can't see but their hair is lighter and more fluffly than a everyday fraggles :).
    Anyway, frogs have googly eyes and they do just fine :).
    I think fraggle ears are more like duck ears...

    If only that were true, because the actual puppets of Boober--and likewise, SideBottom--literally have NO eyes.

    The puppets do but we are talking about if they were real animals ;). And Boober acts like he can see in great detail so if he was real he would have eyes IMHO :)

    Point taken. Also if he were real, he'd probably be a fan of The Beatles, because of his voice and hairstyle, just like Jess Harnell (Wakko Warner) is a fan of John Lennon & Ringo Starr, the two Beatles Wakko's voice is patterned after.

    Well, he might not be actually. Remember if they were real and the tv show was not just a tv show, but just recordings of their everyday lifes, he would not have ever been to Outerspace where the Beatles were known. Where as Wakko is a 'silly creature' of outer space who grew up on radio there ;). Unless the Land Of Carpets thingie happened once before when he was little and his parents saw a picture of that hairstyle...or any picture from that time really, I think the hairstyle was even bigger than the music in places ....

    As for egg colors I think fraggle eggs are earthy grays, silvers,blacks, and blues to blend in with cave rocks and water so they don't get eaten by bigger animals :)

    Or crushed by their own kind during all that dancing and singing.

    Well, that's why they would put them in safe out of the way nests, not in a big pit in the middle of the main cave *lol*.
    I think they can be careful when they want to :). Their eggs could also be a hard as rocks after they are laid, and the babies could have a very very strong egg tooth that falls out after they are hatched :3

    That is a very nice--and well thought out--idea, Red. I applaud. ^_^

    After a doozer gets old and stops working, it becomes a Fraggle :) or... they come from the deepest darkest corner of your basement - I used to look for them ALL THE TIME!

    I can tell Fraggles was made in the mind of Jim Henson.

    When my neices and nephews were small. I used to say I had a FRaggle Hole behind a cardboard box I had full of stuff. I never moved the box but we would leave little prsents for the FRaggles and they would be gone when they wernt looking, and I said the Fraggles took them. HAd them going for a couple of years on that 'till they got older and got wise to me. lol

    That's even better than the Santa scam.
  16. wwfpooh

    Ouch. Despite having been dead for several years, little Saint Nick--who would be the person that people consider to be Father Christmas, Papa Noel, Kris Kringle, Santa Claus, or whatever you call him, given your culture or geographical region--did exist, once upon a time & it was his kind gift that brought forth the now commercial idea that the Santa character symbolizes (though the real meaning is to spread peace on earth and have goodwill towards all people). The symbolism of Santa also applies to the jolly old elf's ninth and final reindeer with the infamous red nose, because though he was initially created for the Gene Autry song that first proclaimed his good deed, Rudy--like his owner--became a worldwide acceptable figure, just like so many other holiday characters, as "he went down in history". ^_^

    Um, I know the history of Santa Claus. If it were up to me (had I children), I would explain we honor Saint Nick's generosity at Christmas while many (though not all) celebrate the assigned birthdate of the holiday's namesake.

    I'm just saying I would have enjoyed the FR ritual better.

    Though I would like the Fraggle ritual--sans freezing--I wouldn't count out the meaning of what Christmas is truly all about (sans the religious aspect)...giving to others out of the kindness of your heart, proclaiming peace on earth, and handing out goodwill to all.
