    Hehehe I think so. :p

    Well I always thought they were a couple. Maybe just didn't want to admit it or ' spell it out' that they were. Mind you they were kids at the time of the series and I don't see too maney children edmitting to anything gushie like ' love. ' lol

    Agreed. Even when she feels that she could go on better without Gobo, it is weird to note that--tiffs aside--Red is the first (besides Wembley) of the 5ive to notice whenever Gobo is missing. And at first, she would seemingly not care, but then--as evidenced in some of the winter episodes--she'd come around to be one of the first to step up to find Gobo.

    Plus, as seen in "Let the Water Run", Gobo gets a small smooch for his troubles in his helping Red to put her show on by getting an umbrella for her. :D

    Gobo gives Red a birthday smooch at the end of " Mirror Mirror " also.
    :smirk: + :excited: = ;)

    I didn't know Gobo + Red = Scooter or that smirking + excitedness = winking...*laughs*

    In all seriousness, I have always said that Gobo and Red make quite the adorably cute dynamic, whether they be romantically-inclined or not.

    If it wasn't Gobo and Red, I'd certainly stand behind a campain for Scooter and Red to get together.

    I guess it's just how you look at it but I never thought of Red and Gobo as a couple! It was always Gobo and Mokey! And the episode that always made me believe that was New Trash Heap in Town - the Helping Hand duet they sing at the end seemed full of romance to me. There's also the famous salt and pepper shakers in Blanket of Snow, Blanket of Woe, the part in The Garden Plot when Gobo runs off from the hole to outer space to help Red and Boober and Mokey wistfully says "Such a fraggle!", and in Mokey's Funeral when Gobo says "I never got to tell her...so many things". Those moments always made me believe they were a couple (if Fraggle couples existed!).

    I always felt Red & Gobo sorta bonded because of the funeral.

    Same. Plus, there were always little moments that bonded the two together, such as the small kisses in "Let the Water Run" and "Mirror Mirror", coupled with the fact that--despite tiffs--Red is one of the first Fraggles to be concerned whenever Gobo goes on one of his many trips to other parts of the Rock or into Outer Space.

    Red & Gobo's relationship always makes me think of Han & Leia from Star Wars. That's prolly why I think they go so well together. It's just obvious to me.

    IMHO, it is obvious to those who look for it or those who--from personal experience--have lived through similar relationship types.

    Or to those who just feel it's an obvious conclusion. :smirk:

    Ooh! That Red & Gobo moment from "Gobo's School for Explorer's" is one of my favorite scenes from the whole series. I like the wind and the music. :smirk:

    Same. Had they actually existed--not counting being peformed by Team Henson Muppeteers--I'm sure Red would be going...well...red with embarrassment and Gobo would be as proud as could be. ;)
