    It was like so, Triple S. :coy: I should know: I asked that question back when Steve was teaching Muppet-like exercises at the Center. He explained to us that there was an electric mechanism inside the mouth puppet that makes the eyes move rather realistically. However, he's the kinda guy who didn't quite like it, so he seldom used it for Wembley.

    Still, this was effective, in accordance to the Steve Whitmire Rule: the less you use robotic effects for a puppet, the more likely audience will notice the incredible effect!

    I so agree that was a little bit of a freaky episode when I was younger.

    Wander McMooch was my biggest Fraggle fear. :eek:

    Gotta agree with fozziefraggle, McMooch always gave me the creeps.

    It was more like how he enslaved Philo and Gunge, but his appearance (and voice) didn't help much.

    Come to think of it, Ma going wide eyed and screaming in terror at the sight of Gobo in the opening credits was always bit unnerving as a child.

    I just remembered... I was absolutely terrified of "Incredible Shrinking Mokey"! That Begoony character gave me nightmares as a kid! :eek:
