    The last thing that Fraggle Rock does is cause me pain. :smirk:

    um, I think when Mokey sings about her body double rags the song goes for a bit too long.

    I honestly cannot think of anything... but then again, I haven't seen the whole series.

    I think I'm biased because I love Fraggle Rock too much to even think it has ever gone wrong!:excited: :excited: :excited:

    The animated voice of Junior Gorg. Most of the voices are a bit off, I'll understand (though I LOVE Rob Paulsen's spin on the characters), but Junior Gorg sounds completely off, and the Gorgs look pretty ugly in animated form.

    Hmm, well those annoying '80s synthesizer trumpet sounds during Junior's "Yes Sir, No Sir" song, that was kinda painful, lol.

    No but seriously, yeah it is hard to come up with truely painful moments here...

    The scene in MFS where Travelling Matt were to have an on-screen cameo being cut. That's pure torture not having that in the film. Frag you, Sony!

    Actually I have one, Uncle Gobo from "Born to Wander." He was just completely unlikeable. If I was Matt, I would have stopped following him a long time ago. And I thought Pa Gorg was bad, lol. I think Matt and Junior could have a few things to discuss!

    My most painful Fraggle moment? One time I was watching the show, and I banged my shin on the coffee table. Had such an ugly black-and-blue...

    I think the most paineful Fraggle moment would have to be Change Of Address where Doc was beside himself when he learned he had to move to the Sea Shore so he could be with his friend Ned. And Gobo was standing right in front of him but Doc couldn't see him because he was invisable til they touched hands and Doc could see him for the first time.
    I don't know why but I thought that was a very emotinial monent for me anyway.

    Yes me too! It was like one of those moments where you almost feel awkward watching it because it is such an emotional moment and you're "intruding".

    Btw, that was actually the first part of the finale, Honk of Honks, which Richard Hunt directed. :)

    You know what was a painful moment? The World's oldest Fraggle hitting Hency on the nose all those times.... that's gotta hurt.

    When Wembley makes a decision in Beast Of Blue Rock... he runs the back of his head into the cave wall, and says, "Making a decision sure is..." That was just weird. Also, in Beanbarrow, I think Boober strangles Henchy just a few seconds too long. Also, in most of season 1, Boober was trying too hard to be depressing that it didn't come off as real. And of course, there's a lotta Gorg moments that I can't really list them all.

    Don't get me wrong, it's still my favorite show ever.

    I will say the animated "Radish Roundup" episode was painful for 2 reasons. Reason 1, half the episode was the Fraggles shouting "Banoonie Berries!" and then making vomit noises for 10 minutes. Reason 2, that panty shot of Ma Gorg. Eeeewwwww...

    There's one song that Ma Gorg sings in season one that just makes me cringe. It's really high and crackly. It's a funny moment but it's hard to listen to. If I remember what song it is I'll post it, but I can't remember.
