Who's the Youngest Fraggle?

    I know Wembley is the youngest of the fraggle 5 but I know what is like being the youngest.
    Because I'm the youngest of 2 siblings and I'm also the youngest of 11 grandchildren from my father's side of the family.

    I'd have to agree with you Collgoff.. But I also could see Red being the youngest. She's very headstrong, and is very unruly in a lot of ways. She's not very responsible, and it seems like she does without thinking. This isn't necessarily a "younger" person trait. But in my family I am an only child, but i am in the middle of the Grandchildren, but the youngest girl. I've noticed that a lot of younger people take more time to grasp things than most people older do... at least in my family. If I were to rank them in age from oldest to youngest I think it'd be Mokey, Gobo, Boober, Red, and Wembly... But im not quite sure about Red...

    I read from a Fraggle Rock book saying that Wembley is the kid brother of the group so Wembley is the youngest. Also in one episode, it was time to Wembley to choose his job when the older Fraggles already had their jobs.

    LOL Don't be! I hated it when I was little because I never had anyone to play with. But now I'm used to it, and feel like I wouldn't be who I am had I had siblings. And I like who I am :excited:

    Hmmmm.....Well those are all really interesting and valid interpretations. I have read in several places that Mokey's the oldest. I haven't read or heard anything about the rest of the gang and I think I know why.

    Like alot of people have already said, age isn't really thing for Fraggles. They're all each as wacky as the other. But think about the premise of the show. It's all about diversity....so the size or personality of the Fraggle doesn't necessarily have anything to do with age but with just how everyone is different and everyone is exactly the same. That's my take on it, anyway. ^_^

    I think that that Wembley is the youngest of the Fraggle 5, and Mokey is the oldest. It is mentioned in some of the bonus features that Mokey is the oldest. (Sorry if that is a little off topic, I just wanted to say that. :laugh:)

    If I had to put them in order from oldest to youngest, I'd guess Mokey, Gobo, Boober, Red, then Wembley. I agree that Mokey's the oldest because of her height and more low-key personality, then I feel that Gobo is the next oldest because of his take-charge attitude and willingness to take on risks. I feel that Boober and Red are probably around the same age, as both of them can be slightly stubborn in their own respective ways, as Boober sometimes refuses to have fun out of fear, while Red is extremely stubborn when she doesn't get her way. And then Wembley is the youngest.

    I read Mokey is the oldest and Wembley is the youngest. I always for some reason thought Red was older then Gobo. It could explain why she gets so frustrated with him at times- she likes him more then a friend but he's a bit of a lost teenage boy and is clueless about that... so my guess is oldest to youngest- Mokey, Red, Gobo, Boober and Wembley

    I'll throw my hat into the bucket and answer this one. Actually, I just borrowed one of Gobo's nifty hats.:smirk: /hehe

    Youngest to Oldest... Wembley, Red, Gobo, Boober, Mokey

    Yes, youngest hands down is Wembley. Yes, Wembley and Gobo are friends, but he looks up to Gobo like an older brother, to me. And as someone else did point out, he was the last one of the five to take on the responsibility of a job. And when he's around Red, he's like that little kid brother who annoys an older sister at times, although he doesn't mean to do it.

    Speaking of which, I have often felt Red was next in line, due to her still being childlike, playful, and stubbornness*(like a teenager) to obey the rules. Plus she all the time has to prove she's better than Gobo and that she can keep up with the slightly older guy. *I do recall, Gobo jokingly told us, "Remember, Red is not stubborn."

    So now, it's Gobo, (who use to look younger than all the rest in the first 12 episodes, like a kid almost, but they fixed) I believe is next in line for age. Got the potential of being a good leader, but still being young causes him to make some no-so-good decisions and he's always in competition with Red, just because I believe, he's older than her and wants to prove why he should be leader.

    Next, I'll throw in Boober, he may be small, but his experience on handling health emergency problems, knowing many home remedies, getting frustrated with the younger crowd, and sort of being like a father figure to the three fraggles(Wembley, Red, Gobo), warning them of the dangers all the time, to which they'd ignore a lot.

    The oldest by far is Mokey. She's mentioned as being like a mother figure to the other four fraggles whom are all her best friends. So when Mokey & Red get a place together, I'm sure Mokey is delighted to have like a younger sister to share things with, even if she is messy.

    I would say that Wembley is the youngest of the five, in my opinion. He can be scared at times. He also learns new things.

    I love your avatar! BTW: Is that Nigel from TMS?

    Actually, that's Droop from TMS.
    You got confused there because Nigel from Muppets Tonight looks similar to Droop but Nigel has light green fur while Droop has dark green fur.

    Oh yeah! I did get the Muppet guys confused. I knew it was of a Droop than /Nigel. Sorry!
