Scary Fraggle Moments

    I think the scariest thing I ever saw on fraggle rock was the mean genie. Basically everything he ever did freaked me out, but especially the song he sang! Goodness, how freaky was THAT!

    Other than that, though, I was so scared when I saw "Fraggle Wars", when the worlds oldest fraggle explains that the different fraggles decided to go to war because they don't laugh at the same jokes and red says something like, "You want to fight with them because they don't laugh at the same jokes?" and the world's oldest fraggle says, "Well, its as good a reason as any," then he just goes back to sleep. That sent chills down my mind's chasm. whoa...

    And then in "the day the music died " when the ditzies said, "Now we are dying... We don't know why." that stated so bluntly was just downright scary! :eek:

    Hey there! Sorry to post so late! When you asked: Do you think that bunny would be a good pet? If it means skrinking you into a fraggle size or smaller than my height, I would say "not." Did you see, Begonny as a FR background character in the musical number "Scrooge" if you saw "The Muppet Christmas Carol" lat year during the holiday season?

    When I saw that episode as a kid, that character was scary, but now when I saw it again this year I am not as scared to that strange creature but still he bugs me at times.

    I saw him in Muppet Christmas Carol too along with Mcmooch and Mudwell and Sprocket.

    Wander Mcmooch, Mudwell, the mudbunny, and Sprocket?

    First of all, Wander Mcmooch scared me a lot when I was younger. Mudwell, he died in the episode, "Gone But Not Forgotten." How did he get in the movie?

    Wait a minute, where did you spot Sprocket? I love that dog!

    If not Mudwell then a similar puppet is seen right with Begoony, and Sprocket's looking out a window in the very beginning. Blink and you'll miss him.

    Wow! When I saw the movie last year even though it was downloaded, I did see a few moments of Sprocket looking out a window. I bet he's looking for his owner, Doc. Awwww! I really love that dog! And to be sure, I did not blink thank goodness. There was an Inkspot in the musical number too. Yes I remeber that! I thought the similar bunny looked like Mudwell now that you mention it.

    Dude! How can the Terrible Tunnel not be the scariest thing ever?! It's the most evil thing down in Fraggle Rock, more merciless and heartless and...featureless than all the other scary elements combined!! :concern:

    You're right! That Terrible Tunnel gives me the chills. (shudders!)

    The eerie voice that answers Wembley when he's playing Heidi Ho in The Terrible Tunnel still scares the bejesus out of me. Seriously, I cannot watch that part of that episode after dark. It's THAT creepy.

    The eerie music and sounds heard in The Day the Music Died when the Ditzies are dying, and when the Ditzies themselves appear and speak to the Fraggles. Can't watch this one after dark either.

    The Cave of Shadows in Pebble Pox Blues is creepy. The music AND the shadows creep me out. Yet another I can't watch after dark.

    Go ahead and laugh, but I find Rhyming Rock scary. I mean, a rock that moves by itself, back and forth like a pendulum (I have a fear of pendulums) and actually SPEAKS? In a deep, echoey voice? Of course it's scary! The fact that it sort of looks like it has a face (if you look at it just right) doesn't help. But luckily it's not so creepy that I can't watch it after dark. :p

    Oh yes I've actually had trouble walking to my room at night in the dark because I kept thinking of that voice, lol.

    Nothing in Fraggle Rock really scared me that much, but I did feel terrible when they all froze in the Christmas special... :'(

    Yeah man, and dem EYES! D8 Speaking of eyes...the teeny pupils resulting from the love potion in "We Love You, Wembley"? Kind of terrifying.

    I think anything odd with puppet eyes is sure to give a jolt--outside Fraggledom, the Kermit eye-bulge in Muppet Treasure Island haunted me as a kid. (Never thought Wembley's rolling eyes were creepy though, oddly enough! I like 'em!)

    The eyes that freaked me out the most were from the episode "Bored Stiff" after the Fraggles inhaled the gas from the boredom juice. Even the flower that Junior dumped the juice on had that weird hollow-eyed look. 0_o

    Okay time for something that's SO scary. So unbelievably scary. (Not really it's actually kind of adorable and I'm gonna make it count anyway)

    I love this frickin' cute creature that sings with Wembley and his other creepy cronies in "Scared Silly." Looks like Fizzgig's cousin, straight out of The Dark Crystal!! :excited:

    (Ohhh, near-invisible Netflix bar. You're a little embarrassing.)

    I know! I didn't know the strange creatures were from the Dark Crystal. I did that movie, and boy were there some scenes that scared the radish risin' out of me.

    You gotta good point there, girls! I too saw a Fizzgig in the episode 'Gobo's Discovery'! :search: I was researching a fact just to be sure. Look it up, guys!
    By the way, I've never seen the Dark Crystal, but just hearing the story makes me be awestricken! :scary: I've even seen how realistic that SkekIs appears everytime I visit the Puppetry Center, not to mention how sharp that sword could be!!! I can't wait to see the movie myself.
    Anyway, it must be strange occurrences like this that brings about the rumors of FR and DC beings sister worlds, adding the fact that both had their roots nearly the same time, back in the early '80s. Besides, like in the episode 'Red's Blue Dragon', portals into Outer Space simply can't be linked to Planet Earth alone... :smirk:

    I can see your point, we don't know where half of those exits go to, but remember, The Dark Crystal appears as a movie in FR, and Matt sees it.

    Now that you mention, in the scene with Uncle Matt in the episode, "Boober's Dream," the scene Matt thought it was a nightmare was from the DSark Crystal. I can't believe they show those creatures from that movie.
