    Watched "The Muppets on Puppets" from 1969...

    ...and I'm feeling a little disturbed. Not at anything I saw in the film, but at myself. I feel borderline dirty for admitting this, especially on this forum. Please don't jump all over me if I tell you!! I found myself attracted to young Jim. :eek: There, I said it!!

    How long do the Minstrels stay in the places they visit?

    Do Cantus and the Minstrels leave immediately after they've served their purpose, or do they stay for a few days? What if one of them got sick or injured? This thought came up while I was playing with a fanfiction idea. I realized I'd need something to happen that would leave the Minstrels...

    Beautiful original Fraggle puppet on ebay!

    Click on this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/professional-puppet-muppet-fraggle-rock-style-/270743979427?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D1%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D8878649605427612765 He's already garnered 9 bids! He looks like he could be related to Boober. If he...

    WANTED: "Tick Tock Sick" 45

    There was one on ebay today, I had bid on it, but someone outbid me, and I was going to bid again, but I completely forgot about it until it was too late. Oh, the agony!:cry: Considering how rare that record is, I will probably never find another one, but at least I can try here. Does anyone...

    Historical Muppet fanfiction?

    Before I begin, I should note that tvtropes.org sums up "historical fiction" as "fanfiction about real life". I found Jim’s high school yearbook (Northwestern High School Compass, 1954) on a vintage yearbook website. I got a 24-hour pass, which cost me about $1.99, and I looked at it. Looking...

    Something new I noticed about Cantus…

    He has middle-age spread! If you have "The Minstrels", check out the scene where he announces that the magic pipe is missing. It's very visible. This doesn't change my opinion of Cantus in any way, I still think he is the most beautiful Fraggle, and I still have an irrational Muppetcrush on...

    Interesting tidbit, any truth to it?

    I heard somewhere once that Jim Henson's primary reason for growing a beard was to hide his acne scars. I know it's stupid and trivial at best, but is this true at all?

    Favorite Minstrel besides Cantus?

    Personally, I'd have to go with Brool, the one who plays what looks like a bass. I love how he's this furry, hulking cave monster with fangs, and then when you hear him sing in "Mokey and the Minstrels", his voice is so sweet and lilting.:) If you had to pick a second-favorite Minstrel, who...

    So I was foolin' around on elouai.com...

    ...and I made a doll that looked like Janice, which I tried to link here, but it didn't work. So now I'd like to delete this post, which I haven't been able to figure out how to do. Anyone know?

    If you had access to a time machine…

    …would you try to save Jim? My boyfriend and I were watching his final public interview (May 4, 1990, Arsenio Hall Show) on YouTube, and he posed that "if we had a time machine, went back to that day, flew out to Hollywood, rented a car and bought a gun and some ski masks, we could kidnap him...

    Do Fraggles have a school?

    Just something I was thinking about the other day. From what we've seen in the show, Fraggles can read, write, and presumably do basic math. They had to have learned it somewhere. Is it something they learn in their homes as they grow up, or do they actually go somewhere to learn it? To me...

    "Into The Night" on YouTube

    Apparently this is a little screwball comedy from 1985, directed by John Landis and starring Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer. It also features a truckload of cameos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQNejauqHoI&feature=related This is part 5 of the movie. It's not the best quality, but...

    What would your Fraggle occupation be?

    If I were a Fraggle, I'd probably first try to become a Minstrel. Of course, this would never fly, because Cantus can't be fooled --- he'd know right away that my main motivation for joining the Minstrels is so I can follow him around.:coy: So instead, I'd probably take care of younger...

    Would it be blasphemy if...(fanfiction question)

    ...I assigned eye colors to the Fraggles in my potential fanfiction? I'm sure many of you guys would take it as artistic license, but there is always the odd purist out there, so I wanted to see what you guys thought first. If Fraggles were actual, flesh-and-blood creatures (and I like to...

    If the Fraggles had zodiac signs…

    This is a thought I have entertained for some time, and I figured that now would be the time to post this, since the Minnesota Planetarium Society is trying to convince us that the zodiacal calendar we’ve used for millennia no longer applies. (I will NEVER acknowledge Ophiuchus!) I’ve realized...
