    I get kinda spooked when Wembley first enters the Terrible Tunnel and you here that voice answering " Ho " to Wem's " Hidies ". I can do that voice pretty well too actually. But that's one of the creepiest fraggle moments for me.
    Mudwell's mood swing is un-nerving as well. ( Is " un-nerving " a word? )

    I find the episode Home is Where the Trash is to be really scary when Philo and Gunge get captured by that McMooch guy because he is really creepy looking. Especially when he is having Philo and Gunge pulling him that wagon or whatever (I'm trying to remember it as good as I can.) Like I said he is so scary looking and that scene just made him even scarier for some reason.

    Wembley's Eyes!

    Is it just me, or do Wembley's eyes freak you out? I've noticed that in some episodes when he's singing, his eyes start turning around in circles and it's really creepy.

    The guy burning my fraggle tapes to DVD said something like that too. I always thought Wem's eye spinning was cool though.

    I always thought Wander McMooch was kinda cool. I even incorporated him into a Muppet Show outline. He pops up in a Muppet Melodrama skit with Miss Piggy and Uncle Deadly. The Dead Man is doing his villain shtick when instead of Wayne coming to Piggy's rescue, it's Wander McMooch, and it turns out he's UD's brother, and they spend the rest of the skit arguing over who the better villain is, with Wander telling UD, "You couldn't tie up a telephone line!"

    My scariest Fraggle moment was in "The Bells of Fraggle Rock" when Gobo is exploring, trying to find the Great Bell, when he comes back to find all his friends frozen solid. Runner-up has to be when Mokey, Red, and Wembley fall victim to Pa Gorg's Boredom Juice in "Bored Stiff".

    Pa Gorg was a delusional, pompous old windbag, wasn't he? That Jerry Nelson can play just about ANYONE... :crazy:

    I think a scary Fraggle Moment was in The River of Life when all the Fraggles got sick from drinking the bad water. That seemed like a really scary and emotional episode.

    My scariest Fraggle moments were the Gorges full stop. I always used to get scared when they would catch the poor helpless little fraggles

    I thought it was freaky when the Gorgs heads were invisable, but I find that funny. :excited:

    I remember when I was a kid I was really afraid for Red and Boober
    in the "Marooned" episode.
    The song they sang made my head tingle with emotion.

    How about the episode where Red and Lanford the Plant ended up in that cavern with those clinging creeper plants? They were like huge octopuses that almost grabbed Red, until Lanford saved the day in the end.

    The River of Life had its scary moments, but nothing ever bothered me as much as "Wembley and the Mean Genie" when the Genie hypnotizes all the Fraggles except Wembley. They all lined up in ranks acting like they'd just returned from a Communist re-education center, and they start singing Do you want it? (Get out of our way!)

    Scary. They were all like evil soulless vampire fraggles.

    I was scared of Marjory the Trash Heap, did anyone else find her scary?.

    Some of the Fraggles found Marjorie frightening. Boober especially. *wink wink*

    She was much more frightening early on in the series, in my mind. Back when she was sort of dimwitted and dangerous. She is monstrous when you first look at her, a sort of motley Jabba the Hutt. But deep down she's a big cuddly mother-figure.

    I thought the episode was cool, but I was a little spooked by the episode where Junior Gorg attempts to smash - and then blow up - Fraggle Rock...I forget the episode name. What scared me in a sad way was when Red sang at the mouth of the tunnel to the Garden. It was scary in a really really sad way...but hey, I was a tyke. It still gets me though, mainly how the puppeteers play so well that they disappear into the character. Karen....man.

    Just my thoughts. Scary and sad at the same time.

    ...and yeah, "Wembley and the Mean Genie" - that Commie-march semblance was eerie. Eerie. Still, a fun fun episode though. But they were all great.

    I'm surprised no one touched on this more, but the freakest thing I've seen on Fraggle Rock was the aforementioned Terrible Tunnel. Wembley goes through it and sees ghosts, and hears weird voices, and then there's that weird rock formation that looked like teeth, and chewed things.

    I haven't seen the episode since I was, like, 5, so my memory's a little fuzzy on it.:) I do recall that it was made clear that very few fraggles came out of that alive..:confused:

    How about that weird from creature from "Junior Sells the Farm". That guy gave me the creeps...and he would always pop out of nowhere with some crazy sound effect. I think he was a frog but I don't know if he had a name. :o
