    Did anyone ever see :excited: and :smirk: as a couple, or is it just me? Even though, it is somewhat clear they are just friends. Whatcha' think?

    This has been discussed many times over. Some people feel that they were and some say they weren't. As for myself, I don't really have much of an opinion yet.

    There was occasionally some innocent romantic tension there I think.

    I always saw them as a couple...until I saw the show and realised that they wern't.

    Does that make sense? Probably not.

    I'd seen many pictures, drawings, and articles about Fraggle Rock. I knew all about the characters, the trashheaps, and the raddishes...and I assumed that Gobo and Red were a couple. When I saw the show, I was amazed at how little Red and Gobo interacted and that they wern't together.

    Of course I have only seen 12 episodes from random series...but...they seemed more like rivals.

    I think Red likes Gobo more than Gobo likes Red.

    I do not think they are a couple but out of all the Fraggles I think they would make the best couple. Their personalities are the most similar and I think their competitiveness would make for an interesting always fun relationship ... although that could also cause some major problems.

    Although I now don't view the Fraggles at ALL through a romantic lense, I definitely remember thinking, as a kid, that Red had a crush on Gobo, Gobo had a crush on Mokey and Mokey and Boober had some sort of understanding. Haha! It's funny when I think about it now...

    But Red totally does display the same behaviors that I did when I had a crush on some kid in like the 2nd grade, so I can see where I got that impression.

    The way I see it... Red liked Gobo but didn't want to believe it, and Gobo had a huge amount of respect for Mokey, so showed some liking for her, and Mokey just thought of Gobo as a cute little kid, but had some sort of thing for Boober, and I think at times he reluctantly returned the emotions.

    Wembley was the awesome little brother just watching them all and shaking his head. :p

    I don't know that I ever saw them as a couple; they're both too competitive with each other! And what's funny is that I never really saw any kind of connection between them at all until I got season one and started really watching these shows again. There definitely IS some kind of special connection there, but again I don't see the "couple"-ness simply because, even though they are certainly good friends, their own pride would get in the way much too often.

    Gotta agree with ya there, Steve. Perfect analyzation, I think.

    I don't know, they remind me of the couple from Moonlighting. They fight so much because there is a hint of romantic possibility there.

    I have these two romantically linked in a couple of fan fics, but really they are more grown up in the fan fics so it's not taking place at the same time as the series. I think it's open to interpretation and you can think how you want to think. I saw some little vibes and tension there myself and that's why I set them as a couple in the future, but it doesn't mean that's what the writers originally intended. Does that make any sense?

    I've got that " edgier " picture of them with the rest of the 5ive also. People read too much into that one though. :smirk:

    I think, as a few people have mentioned, Red likes Gobo a lot, but he has feelings for Mokey, who seems to really like Boober; and Wembley and Lou are "friends" ( ;) ). Personally, I love love triangles, but I don't think Redobo (Red/Gobo) will work out too well. But I think Boored (Boober/Red) is cute.

    But then again, this is coming from the girl who also likes Sired (Sidebottom/Red), shonen-ai (male/male), and crack pairings. :halo:

    PS: Love your art, Foodie. ^.^ You will forever kick my butt at colored-pencil coloring!
