Is Boober a nudist? :-)

Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by Jeffrey Gray, Jul 29, 2003.

    On BlueFrackle's FR site, there is a picture of some "naked" Fraggle puppets of Gobo, Red, Wembley, and Boober. However, seeing what the others look like without clothes makes me realize something: Boober is nude on the show! (Well, except for his hat...)

    And I wonder...could Boober possibly be a nudist? And if he doesn't wear clothes, why is he always washing them? :)

    Who knows, but if he is a nudist, I support his decision!!

    Well, Boober DOES wear a scarf along with the hat too...but still that is considerably less than what the other main Fraggles wear (note the word main - several of the background Fraggles don't wear anything.)

    Boober being Boober, I don't think it's that he's into nudism as he is fear of germs that clothes might carry (perhaps where he developed his laundry obsession). Interesting how the clothes he DOES wear (hat, scarf) are the items that one wears to keep from catching a cold!

    ...getting caught up on the forum again...

    BTW - great avatar, YCDTOTV was a true classic!

    Great to see you back, DW!!

    Never thought about the hat and scarf fighting off colds like that. You'd think, though, he'd be more susceptible to getting ill by living in a cave with water set up in the great hall, especially while getting his hands all wet washing clothes, where there aren't many clothes to be worn. Not to mention that being nekkid leaves certain orifices open through which some germ or bacteria could get and make one sicker.

    What he SHOULD have done was just spray disinfectant on himself and then cover himself with celophane.

    LOL, OMG, I never realized that either! How true! :)

    If ya think about it, only Gobo, Red, and Wembley wore shirts. And while Mokey wore a "sweater", it wasn't the typical sweater, it was more like a robe-y thingy.

    Now I wonder if Mokey was into 'flashing' people?? :concern:

    No thanks, I don't think about the furry little creatures in that way.

    I really don't think boober is a nudist, I think he just likes his hat and scarf! I personally prefer a hat and scarf instead of the dumb clothes boys wear these days, but I think I would get beat up too much!

    Yes, but in that episode she wore a blue sweater underneath. :D

    Boober's hat and scarf are probably luck bringers. And who says that he's wearing less than the others? He has TWO pieces of clothing. Wembley only wears one banana tree shirt...

    He wears a hat and neck-tie, too.

    I think it's kind of like mice in our walls, who don't wear anything. Fraggles weren't meant to wear clothes, but at some point just started, cause there are a LOT of nekkid Fraggles in the show's background.

    I wanna be in the background.

    What kind of disturbs me is when the Doozers go around naked.

    Poor Boober...he's so busy doing all the other Fraggles' laundry that he never has time to do his own.

    Boober, the nudist Fraggle. That would have been a very special episode of "Fraggle Rock."

    I've always noticed over the years that some puppets never wear or wore clothing,just their character trait I guess.Or like it was mentioned some have very little on,just one or two pieces or just accessories. :zany:
