This seemed to be the best way of logging my thoughts about Fraggle appearance and lifestyles.  I'm preparing another with Kiki that should be finished tomorrow.

It's just that the cave would get awfully crowded.

Somebody added a race of BLIND fraggles, who live in a deep lightless abyss. They have NO concept of light or color. Their useless eyes have no pupils. One wears a fancy tie, but it had been dropped by accident into the abyss, and he recognized it by its shape. No idea of the design.

Their art is sculpture, as painting conveys NOTHING to them.

Interesting concept... better not steal it.  I'd hate to see a politically correct Fraggle Rock, though, with Fraggles in wheelchairs, autistic Fraggles, Black, Latino and Native American Fraggles, LGBetc. Fraggles and gawd noze what else!

Why? The show's entire reason to exist was primarily about being all-inclusive & promoting world peace to stop wars!

Dream-sharing:
My Amy Gdala, a top-rank sorceress, has mastered that, even to the extent of building things in dream -and then using the Dream Into Day spell to pull said artifact into waking reality ! She is an enemy of Casper.
The above mentioned spell was used to end the Madness of Blood about 12,000 years ago. How? It banished an indestructible book into dream, so it would cause no more hellish uproar. As to the crisis it ended, I've no details. All memory was erased, even from the wizards' minds, lest civilization not get restarted.

I remember the Caspar-Slayer ... ahem.

My final idea of Amy Gdala differs from the original. She is now a haggish woman with a grim, set face, standing before a torture table in a hall. She is waiting for Casper... She figures in THE OVERDUE LIBRARY BOOK and in FLY THE FIENDLY SKIES.

Amydala?  It seems to me that you mentioned the pun before.

Little Fraggle Biology question.  Are Fraggles mammalian?  The episode Wembley's Egg is based on the premise that the concept of an egg is alien to them so I presume this would imply that they give live birth.
TaralWayne's avatar
It's my feeling that they are ... but obviously there biology is not altogether kosher for mammals.  They freeze and thaw (according to one episode), a feat no mammal can do.

I imagine that's some manner of evolutionary advantage designed to cope with life underground.

I felt that there is a graveyard somewhere, just as the MLPs must have one as well.
TaralWayne's avatar
Yes.  Somewhere.  I may get around to it someday.

Awww... BTW, what's their interaction with those little working creatures that also lives with them?

Doozers.  In the TV show, Doozers just live underfoot, building pointless constructions from little clear rods called Doozer Sticks.  Fraggles eat the Doozer Sticks, knowing the Doozers don't mind.  They don't understand Doozers at all -- why work all the time, what's the point of their towers and bridges and things, and why don't they care if Fraggles eat their hard work?  Beyond that, Fraggles tend to ignore Doozers completely.  In fact, the Doozers are necessary to Fraggles, because there's not much else in Fraggle Rock for them to eat except mushrooms.  And Fraggles are necessary to Doozers because if Fraggles didn't eat their constructions, the Rock would soon be full and there'd be nothing more for Doozers to do.  Fraggles are unaware that Doozer Sticks are made from radishes -- which happen to be Fraggles' other favourite food (stolen from the Gorg's garden outside).  Doozers think Fraggles are utterly silly.  Gorgs don't like anyone but Gorgs.  However, Doozers and Fraggles do sometimes talk, and Cotterpin Doozer has actually made friends with one or two Fraggles, including Red.  To all that canonical lore, I've added Kiki Fraggle, who is perhaps the only Fraggle who is actually curious about Doozers and watches them work ... has even tried to learn one or two things from them.

Now that I remember, I think there was recently a kids show about a little group of doozer kids.

That was just a couple of years ago, and cgi rather than puppets.  I saw one or two and thought they in no way should have been called Doozers.  Very little like the originals.
XUnlimited's avatar
I tried to see a couple of episodes, but I always felt them boring.
TaralWayne's avatar
The cgi animated Doozers?  Yeah, I thought they were educational... ie: boring.
XUnlimited's avatar
Yeah, they could have done a better work.
