    Oho! Fishface was cool in his own right. His sneery face makes me laugh too. Pretty much that entire episode is a laugh riot!

    I want to try this out :excited: AND try to be brief about it, because I could talk about any one of these episodes for a day, probably!

    1. "The Minstrels." My favorite opening scene into an episode of anything, ever--that magic pipe intro was simply gorgeous.

    2. "Marooned." It's got a different mortality spin than "Gone, But Not Forgotten," but this episode does more to develop the characters of Boober and Red, which I found extremely important. And well, of COURSE, "The Friendship Song."

    3. "Change of Address." Probably warrants first place given how brilliant it is, but I mean...we all knew this already!

    4. "River of Life." That already well-mentioned Boober pleading scene. :cry:

    5. "Capture the Moon." This episode, like "The Bells of Fraggle Rock," is just filled with remarkable creativity on the writers' part to come up with Fraggle customs. And, in turn, the plot really shines creatively, too!

    6. "The Secret Society of the Poohbahs." Best message EVER, and one never taught in kid's shows, really, because I think that people are afraid to teach that silliness is important. Henson and Hunt are just the best at that whole "Fritz" scene, too, truly--always laugh at that part!

    7. "Mokey and the Minstrels." "Lose Your Heart (And It's Found)" is sorely underrated, and it's fun to see Mokey get hopeful, full of herself, and then get brought down to earth with no shame at all. And Boober's adorable when she's leaving :flirt:

    8. "Gone, But Not Forgotten." Touching, and I just love Mudwell and his song. :) The Fraggles' respective attempts to cheer Wembley up are so sweet, too!

    9. "The Beanbarrow, the Burden, and the Bright Bouquet." A good, "mature" Red episode. She's so sweet singing to Lanford, and I think it's important that two characters who despise each other worked together in a dire situation!

    10. "Wonder Mountain." I'm being a bit selfish with this one because I personally sympathize with being that (over)protective friend/sister. It's a good one though and I think it is truly important for people to go out and discover things on their own, because people approach things differently.

    Yeah, when he hugs Mokey from behind is so sad! In behind all those worries and anxieties, there's a giant heart in there. :sigh:

    If you ever watch Dinosaurs you should watch the episode Driving Miss Ethyl it's just like the Beanbarrow episode.

    Dom, how is it similar to the Beanburrow episode?
  9. Dominicboo1

    Dominicboo1 Well-Known Member

    It's similar because both Earl and Ethyl wind up in a car together, and they start to respect each otehr and go through a lot to get her to her high school reunion it's really heartwarming!
