Why do we have to be called Silly Creatures, and who is this Ned Schimmelfinney guy?

    Questions I am pondering, any1 have a clue?
     
  2. Cause Uncle Matt wrote in his journal that fraggles are "the greatest and most noble race" there is, so of course we just look silly and foolish since we're "unfraggley"---hence the Silly Creature name. :)

    And Ned is Doc's best friend and good-natured rival, who lives within sight distance from the workshop door (his cat Fluffanella, and Sprocket are also rivals, but they have their sweet moments).

    Hope this helps! :)

    In some Fraggle Rock picture book I used to have, there's a line from Travelling Matt in which he says:

    "I call them Silly Creatures, because that is what they are."

    When I think about a lot of the humans I know, I'm pretty convinced that Matt is right.

    Ned Schimmelfinney is the nefariously evangelical hierophant of
    imperious wonder and design...an incandescent backbone of
    achievement and time...of all that was and is to be.

    He also makes a mean salad dressing;)
