    It was great seeing that marathon and to see Red and Gobo again. I'd love to see more Fraggles on TV for the rest of the year while it's still 2013. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have Red or the whole Fraggle gang make some special appearances promoting their 30th anniversary. The Tonight show with Jay Leno or any talk show could be a possibility. But I'm hoping the people from the Henson company can make that happen.

    Glad I caught these. Very nice to see & hear Gobo speak again. It was a good batch of some of the more " powerful " episodes too. :smirk::excited:

    I loved it. It was very cool. I loved the parts that were referencing My Little Pony and Transformers.

    I taped it, so I will laugh now when I hear it.

    Oh man, those were really cute promos! Wish I had the Hub, it's cool to know that people are watching the Fraggles on television, and that they're being celebrated!

    And though Foodie's said it already, it's worth saying again: those are some real choice episodes, there.

    I hope Fraggle Rock comes back to a permanent time slot soon since The Hub ran the three-hour marathon. :excited:

    I dunno, Frackleman. Why did they put an important anniversary schedule on the Sunday morning schedule? That's the time of the day which, I know for sure, many people across the country attend church. I mean, if it's really important to them, then why didn't they put the marathon on a Friday, or a Saturday? :confused:

    I'm still feeling stupid about that complaining post earlier--Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! I hate it when I hurt others! :cry: Now I'm regretting not seeing the whole marathon. I wrong totally wrong to judge humor...

    Well, at least I'm not Christian. I only go to temple on special occasions such as Rosh Hashanah.

    Thank you in advance! I can't wait to hear Uncle Matt's latest postcard.

    I just re-watched the "Ask a Fraggle" spot, and it looks like Red misremembered something. When asked how convincing Convincing John was, she said that he convinced Mokey to convince everyone not to eat Doozer towers. Um, it was the other way around. Mokey got him to convince everyone to stop eating the towers. *snicker*

    No problem, I haven't even seen the marathon yet! I recorded it, so that's where it will come from.

    Either way, Slackbot, it still sounds like Red has painful memories from 'The Prearchification of Convincing John'. I mean, who wouldn't when you can't eat your favorite snack? :ouch:

    I'd say Worlds already collided when Katie Cook went from the Fraggle Rock comics to the MLP FIM comics.

    Too bad there wasn't an Uncle Matt Post Card from Cybertron.

    "My Dearest Nephew Gobo...

    You think the Silly Creatures of Earth are screwed up. That's nothing compared to these big Shiny monsters. They say that some have even popped up on our planet. If you see one, RUN!"

    Red's favorite snack is radish bars, silly. (Also her favorite hair care product.) Still, point taken. Convincing John messed with her mind, and she still hasn't recovered from the trauma.

    I loved how angry Red was talking about it. I wonder how much of this was improvised. That one really got a great performance from Karen.

    Poor Red, Convincing John has traumatized her and Wembly. Never heard a fraggle growl before that episode... Heehee
