Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by SwordKing, Apr 11, 2009.
So, ah... No opinions on my "Fraggles trying to drive" idea?
^ It's a good idea. Maybe I'm crazy but wasn't there a sketch on Mr. Edward's blog that had something like that?
I can't picture fraggles driving that much, but I still think scenes where they are hitchhiking would be fun :3.
If they had to get somewhere I could see them making things to travel in too.
Yes. It was a storyboard pic with Gobo at the driver's seat (naturally) and Boober in the passenger seat ... both screaming in fear. It was hilarious.
Can we get a link to this picture or is it gone?
edit: I was a little off. Both Gobo and Boober are behind the wheel.
It looks like a fraggle car though, not a human one
I could really see a Fraggle "Car" chase happening. Something allong the lines of the animated chase sequence in that cart (or skateboard or whatever... I have to rewatch it) in "No Fraggle is an Island." One thing about a movie's budget, you can have some nice action sequences that you could never do in television.
When's the last time the Fraggles had a car? The closest I've seen is the beanbarrow for racing ... but there's no steering wheel to it. From what I remember, Wembley said he invented a wheel but it didn't work because it kept rolling away.
Doozers have motorized vehicles. Fraggles do not.
At least on the show.
Who said it had to be motorized to be a car? o.o I could see them coming up with one of those foot petal powered go cart thingies if they had to, or something drawn by an animal...
*lol* Of course I know there wasn't one in the show, but the picture looks like it is fraggle sized and handmade...
^ What about those McDonald's (or maybe it was Burger King?) kids meals that had them driving radishes or something? XD Like Red said, they'd probably go the Flintstones route and have something you'd petal or stamp your feet on the floor to get it to move. Engines are silly creature technology and I don't think they'd really understand.
It was McDonald's I remember very well because it was the first year I was old enough for the 'big kid' toys :3.
Logically speaking, I could see Gobo reading a postcard from Uncle Matt about cars, and Gobo wanting to build one to see what it's like.... something similar to the Flintstones car, as said... or maybe something with pedals. Don't know who'd build it, though. That's Doozer territory.
Perhaps Cotterpin could step in and help? I don't know of or why she would though.
Still, fraggles must have cart builders, so it's not that crazy that they could make it themselves. Those sort of fraggles might just be very rare...
whens this movie planned for anyway?
I think everyone is saying 2011? :\
Remember also, in " Capture The Moon " we learned that Wembley invented the wheel. It didn't work though as it kept rolling away.
But, also, someone had to have made the wheelbarrows they were using in that race, so Wembley might have not been the last or first to try
