Fraggle Rainbow by real-faker Fraggle Rainbow by real-faker
WHY AM I DRAWING THIS I SHOULD BE DRAWING OTHER THINGS

So I've had this idea in my head since earlier in the year that just WONT GO AWAY where like... I wanted to organize and arrange the 5 main characters of Fraggle Rock in some sort of color order.

Which was incredibly frustrating to think about because let's just say we're starting at red (the color, not the Fraggle). Obviously there's no red Fraggle but there's Red Fraggle who isn't really red in any way other than her sweater and I guess the fact that she's a ginger. So the next color up is orange and Gobo is orange but he's also got a lot of red and yellow on him (Just like Red). So you have to decide which attributes are more important; am I categorizing them by the color of their skin? The color of their hair? The color of their fur? The color of their clothes? Gobo and Red both have a lot of Red, Orange, and Yellow on them. So obviously (assuming we start at red) one of them will come first.
Gobo has pinkish/purple hair though, so then THAT sort of becomes the deciding factor.... he can connect to the pinkish/purple Mokey.... so then that settles that, but how do you show a connection through the colors? If they're all standing next to each other you still wouldn't get tha- they have to be arranged top to bottom. Ass to mouth. FRAGGLE CENTIPEDE.
So now they have to be all connected in a circle. Which works, because the whole concept of the show is this idea of interconnectedness and harmony and a bunch of hippie shit like that.
So okay Mokey goes into Gobo goes into Red who OBVIOUSLY GOES INTO WEMBLEY BECAUSE WEMBLEY IS YELLOW.
I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK AND I DON'T CARE HOW MANY TIMES THEY CALL HIM "THAT LITTLE GREEN ONE" IN THE ACTUAL SHOW, HE IS YELLOW.
I mean... isn't he?
He's got a little green-ish tint to him but he's more yellow than anything else... unless you're talking about his fur, which is very much a pukey-green color.
And then now this starts to really fuck with me because unless something's just wrong with my eyes, that means that CANONICALLY, Fraggles classify the colors of other Fraggles according to what color their fur is. Which I guess makes sense because their fur is on their mid-section which is the "base" of their bodies but you don't hardly ever SEE that much of them 'CUZ, YKNOW, THEY'RE PUPPETS.... and we tend to recognize faces first anyway.
SO then I just decide to stop thinking about it because ONE WAY OR ANOTHER he has to go next being that he is both yellowy and greeny.
And then Boober, don't get me started on Boober. Sometimes he looks more greenish and sometimes he looks more blueish so I guess it'd be appropriate to call him teal or turquoise. Whateverrwhatever he comes next.
And then we're back to Mokey and things are making perfect sense again because her hair color is that greenish/bluish which connects with Boober 'cause we're making the Fraggle Centipede and all and then she's purplish/pinkish which as I've already established connects with Gobo via hair 'cuz Fraggle Centipede and all that stuff and no one cares.

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT FOLKS.

I'll understand if you no longer wish to be my friend.

Also you should know that one of my layers was a Fraggle color wheel. With... all... my... swatches.
THERE I GO AGAIN

Enjoy!

Seriously, PLEASE don't tell me you guys read that. I just wanted to see how long I could carry on about nothing.

Poor Boober! I wanna give him a tour of the basement and feed him with a radish.

Ah, what the heck, all five are nice!

I'd adopt them all, but I'm busy!

Still ..............

Why are you ashamed of loving Fraggles? You should be proud of it!

At first, I thought Wembley was green, but now I know that he's yellow.

I read the whole thing. I DID IT. I TOTALLY DID IT.
Ahem.
I love the idea of this though, it's all.. conceptually Fraggly. That is all.
