Is Boober a nudist? :-)

    Ok, I've said this before and looks like I need to say it again... you're assuming that Fraggle anatomy is even remotely similar to that of humans (aside from the obvious visible traits, such as they eat food with their mouths).

    Personally I always thought the fact that they don't wear a lot of clothes supported this idea. And yeah, some don't wear clothes, but think about this... of the ones that do wear clothes, how many of them wear pants. Nobody has ever shown concern about covering their lower extremities.
    The only Fraggle I think of who does is Sidebottom and he seems to do it mainly as a "be different" fashion statement. Quite fitting though, that as Boober's opposite personality, Sidebottom DOES wear normal clothing.
    I can certainly remember my eyes widening from a degree of shock during that umm.. touching moment. If it was any sort of 'flashing' as far as Fraggles go, I doubt Mokey did it intentionally. Mokey has always had that maternal instinct when someone was in need, but it seemed to increase ten-fold where Begooney was concerned. Begooney was very good at getting his own way exactly the way he wanted it, and the way she ran back to him everytime was just magic-induced mind-control. Therefore, there's a good chance that most of what Mokey did in that episode was not by her own will.

    I'm going to stop there instead of spelling out the potential events that could be implied in that scenario.

    Was she wearing some kind of undergarment in that one? I couldn't remember offhand, but if that's the case... it was VERY good move on Henson's part.

    And just WHAT'S wrong with thinking about Fraggles in that way? :halo:

    You know, Boober doesn't just wear his hat and scarf, he wears socks too. you never see him wearing them but he does mention it in 'Mokey and the Minstrels'. He says something along the lines of:

    "I heard a skwud once, it turned out I had just stepped in a puddle...The skwud I heard was wet socks."

    Plus if you read the books there's the odd picture of him wearing socks.

    He also has his night clothes.

    Now now, all of you. The fraggles are nudists the same way as a cat or dog. Maybe they don't wear clothes except to be decorative, but they don't need it with all that fur. I'm surprised you're questioning them when Kermit doesn't even have fur! ^_^

    I always thought the Doozers looked obcene in a way. I mean they almost posses human features. In the muppet version of FR they always wore helmest and construstion gear but in the animated version they seem to wear a lot less, anyone notice this?

    Sometimes the Doozers don't wear anything in the original Muppet series. When Cotterpin and Wrench made their first appearances, they didn't wear a thing for they haven't received their construction titles yet.

    If people were covered with fur, would they wear clothes? No Robin Williams or Sean Connery jokes please.

    No, if it would be enough nice-looking fur. As for fraggles - it matches to clothes, so looks suitable. As for C. John, he still amazes me: full suit plus undies... "Wrapped up" almost from top till toes but furry, and does so many acro tricks... isn`t it TOO heat?

    that'd be funny if all the socks he washes are just his and he wears them out of sight all the time!
