    Since Jaken and Sage are brother and sister, they are part of each other for the Fraggles. Great job, Slackbot! I understand that you take lots of time to do Fraggle art.

    New here, first post. :coy:

    Very nice drawing of Janken and Sage. Always looking forward to see what you'll draw next. You make Poncle so cute, she's adorable.

    I read back a few pages, liked some of your pics you posted and to answer your question on Scooter Fraggle (hehe), maybe go with a darker orange color. But this being Janken's dream, I guess he could put any color on him. Fraggle fur though does tend to stay close to their skin color.

    Thanks, guys!

    Ton Fraggle, dod you follow me here from DeviantArt? Whether you did or you didn't, welcome! And, yes, the "Scooter Fraggle" picture is meant to be part of a dream. Specifically, a dream that Scooter and Janken are sharing. Since Jan is the one doing the sharing he's more or less in charge, but Scooter could easily veto the species change of he found the fur coat uncomfortable. I like to imagine him with green fur because of his green jacket, especially since darker orange fur would be uncomfortably Gobo-esque.

    Thanks. I just sort of followed the trail. ;)


    Even though they never did much with it on Fraggle Rock, I always found it so cool Fraggles could share dreams. So play time and social time didn't have to end when you went to bed, so to speak.

    And I see your point in the green fur/green jacket for Scooter. It didn't cross my mind earlier, but you are right, he would sort of be Gobo look alike. If you end up making this one of your colored drawings, I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

    Thanks, MelissaTheDog!

    The Fraggles only shared dreams in Boober's Dream, but the Trash Heap made it sound as if it was not all that rare. I like to think that it's a very special thing between Fraggles who are very close. When you share a dream with someone, you're letting them into your mind. Talk about intimacy! The Fraggle Five are close enough for that, and Boober seems to be closest to Wembley so it makes sense that he asked for Wem's help first. (And that's why, in "Masks," Janken showed Scooter his family in a dream: he really wanted Scooter to be a part of him, so he opened his mind to him. Good thing it worked, otherwise Jan would've been so disappointed and Scooter would never have known why.)

    A scene I considered but ultimately discarded because it was off message: Skeeter finds out about Fraggles sharing dreams, and how it worked even with Scooter. She asks Janken if she could try. Very uncomfortably he tells her that that's the kind of thing you don't just casually ask someone else to do, it's something that's offered, not asked for, and he just ain't that close to her. She backs off, not understanding what line she crossed.

    Did I already say I like these? No? Than I'll say it: I LOVE THESE!
    (ok, except Muppet snogging. That freaks me out)

    "Snog" is such a funny word. It gives me the giggles.

    Snog any Muppet or to Fraggle? That's silly! Who would be dumb enough to do that kind of trick. Just kidding! (laughs)! Thank you for posying! Well, what did you expect. The all-knowing Sackbot! Nyeahhhh!

    Someone who loves a Fraggle or Muppet, and who finds that the feeling is mutual, is likely to do the snogging. Or be part of the snogging, as it's a mutual act.

    Snog snog snog snog. (Geseundheit.)

    Random note: at a party some weeks back I was doing face painting for kids. I had a doodle pad with me, and when I wasn't painting faces I drew little pics. One of 'em was a picture of Scooter, and the kids watching were delighted...and thought he was Arthur. Well, I do have a tendency to draw Scooter's clamshell head narrower than it should be, but I didn't think it was that bad! :smirk:

    I think you draw Scooter just fine. Of all the muppets from the Muppet Show, Scooter is my #1 favorite;) , with Gonzo in close 2nd:concern:. So I'm always excited to see you draw Scooter, he looks like Scooter to me. And since I love Fraggles and Scooter is with a Fraggle, it's always a plus when they're drawn together.

    (l;aughs)! Scooter resembles a look of a fraggle? Weird, but true! So, that's why some Fraggle's faces almost look like Scooter. Hahahaha!

    A Sip of Sweet Water: Last night I heard a bit of the song Glass Vase Cello Case, which included the lyric "Breathe into my hands / Or cup them like a glass to drink from." What a beautiful, romantic image. I couldn't get it out of my head, and it led to this picture. This be Janken Fraggle and Scooter at a sweetwater pond in Fraggle Rock, soon after the events of Brothers and Sisters.

    You get fifty coolness points if you have seen the movie I was watching when I heard this song.

    Cute! I half-picture Gobo and Red acting out the same scene, only Red splashes the water into Gobo's face, laughs and then jumps into the pond. Romance!

    Thanks! Charlietheowl, a face-splash did occur to me, and if I had used this idea in Brothers and Sisters you can bet that it would have been one of the outtakes.

    Also, 30,000 views! Woot!
