Blogger Confessional© Stupid things we do as children


As a child, I loved this show, and of course am jacked about the movie, that is now not being released until almost 2009.

When I was a kid, every house that I ever went to, I always checked the basement for Fraggle Holes. If I have been to your house, I have looked. Trust me. I knew it was a show...but a part of me so wanted it to be real, that I always checked...just in case.

One time, I was at someone's house, and they had a small hole in one of the walls...i was so excited, and asked them about it, not implying it might have been a fraggle hole, because that would have been ridiculous...but they proceeded to inform me that it was a crack in the foundation, and that they dug out all the loose concrete.

I was devastated.

Devastated because the Fraggles living inside got pissed off that you fucked up the doorway to their world? ;)

Muppets are the bomb. I just used "the bomb"... How sad...
Cool to hear about a Fraggle movie.

Princess Pessimism said...

Remember that show The Littles? I LOVED that one too. They used human stuff as furniture and their own house hold items - so cool. Or did you ever have Charmkins?? I don't know what the fascination is with things that are hidden or wee. But I loved it.

Fraggle Rock seasons 1 & 2 are out on DVD... I have them. Loove all things Muppety.

I love Wembly Fraggle.

Speaking of people that look like the Queen Gorg... Anyone here watch Coronation Street? Cilla looks just like Queen Gorg, and she's a major jerkface too.

Sexy Suburbanite said...

Seriously, have you watched this show lately (I mean on DVD and whatnot)? So not as good as we remembered. Sigh...

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - Charmkins...Thats one I dont remember

Bleph - YAY..me too...i want season one and two for my neices.

Sexy - I KNOW!!! i feel the same way. Theres much more singing then I remember.

yrautca said...

Isnt that for kids?

Princess Pessimism said...

Y - if you dont have anything good to say about the fraggles, dont say anything at all. No negative comments are welcome here.

If only fraggle holes and fraggle worlds existed . . .

I dreamt of them as well.

I never really watched fraggles. Don't know why, it was on when I was young, just wasn't on my radar. Though I remember reading a freinds college thesis which was all about the politics of the fraggles. How the whole show was a treatise on capatalism (specifically a laise faire society - ie. the fraggles) vs. communism (the Dozzers). I don't remember much, just that I was fascinated with this insane interpratiation.

Childhood... Such a carefree and simple world. By biggest problem was hiding my report card from mom.

Im still trying to figure out new ways...
