Dear Nephew Gobo


Of all the Fraggles, I favor Traveling Matt. (Yes, Henson did intend for that pun, apparently)

He reminds me of early travelers to the Amazon, who came back claiming to have encountered all sorts of fantastical tribes. The one I remember in particular was a group of people described as having their heads embedded in their chests.


As you can see, the layout is very awkward and would make it all but impossible to wear a hat.



  1. He was the Herodotus of Fraggledom.

  2. That's the problem with traveling by yourself. (which I've done on numerous occasions) There's no one to turn to and say, "What the heck is that?" You just have to figure it out on your own.
