I'm actually kinda surprised that Frazzle didn't scare me when I was little,I guess it was because I thought that he was silly.
The feminist sketch of there's nothing we women can't do ends with the suggestion that women can even go to the moon. Interesting note just before the woman takes off for the moon a gruff male voice can be heard saying "You tell 'em Alice!" this is obviously an ironic homage to the character Ralph Kramden who would today be viewed as somewhat of a male chauvinist5.The song skit these woman puppets are sing "There nothing we women can`t do". The part towards the end of the song a women singing starts lifting off like a rocket puzzled me. "Was she a robot''?
I admit, I remember being scared of Frazzle as a kid. But looking back, I feel sort of guilty. I mean the whole point of his song was that everytime he growled, he was just saying he's happy (or sad, or hungry etc). That he "looks verocious but he's really fine" and there was no reason to be afraid.
Unfortunately the message did not translate to all kids, heh. I sort of see him now as the Nightcrawler of the group.
Lol, no you're just lucky!I guess I just stink because nothing on SS ever really scared me
I was watching my copy of SS Old School in the middle of the night once. The sound of the voice-over in Jazzy Spies saying "2...2....2222...2!" is definitely extra creepy at night! LolAs an adult though, the Jazz segments creep me out a bit because now I realize just how strange and pyschodelic they were. How did I ever look on this stuff as normal?
I never had a problem with them as a kid, and now the whole thought of the 2 twin George Washington busts just cracks me up (I made a reference to them all the way back in college for an animation I did). But I had a problem with it watching it for the first time in years back in 2003.... I had trouble sleeping that night.As an adult though, the Jazz segments creep me out a bit because now I realize just how strange and pyschodelic they were.
