More of Sidebottom?

    As you all probably know, Sidebottom only appeared in three episodes: "Boober's Dream", "Boober's Quiet Day", and "Sidebottom Blues". My question is, do you think more could have been done with the character or was it best that he was only in three eps?

    I personally want to go on record as Ms. Anti-Sidebottom, lol. True, I did feel a little sorry for him in his first episode. But overall, Sidebottom can't hold a candle to regular Boober's offbeat grumpy humor.

    I agree, I did'nt really like him that much, I think he was more of a one episode character :)

    I guess what I didn't like was that there seemed to be an attitude with the other Fraggles (and in the story's message itself) that Boober somehow "needed" to change and be more like Sidebottom. I liked Boober the way he was and didn't want him to change.

    Of course in "Sidebottom Blues" it is acknowledged that Sidebottom is pretty useless in a crisis and needs Boober's guidance. Lol

    I guess I didn't like him because it seemed to me like Boober always had a sense of humor in a way and did not need to be over the top with it like everyone else :3

    I'd certainly have been on the "Less of Sidebottom" side of the fence...but I do see what his point was.
