Relatively recently, someone added this passage: "Gobo speaks with a distinct Canadian accent, a reference to the show's filming location of Ontario, Canada." That "eh"s in Gobo's speech is undeniable, but considering our policy on sourcing, I kind of feel like we should find an actual source for the claim, or else rewrite it with some qualifiers (i.e. "Gobo occasionally peppers his dialogue with a Canadian-sounding "eh," a likely reference to the show's being filmed in Canada"). That statement would be an accurate presentation of a *surmise* from screen evidence (besides, I'm really not sure why Ontario need be mentioned at all, though admittedly I know nothing of Canadian regional accents). I know several folks here have been able to talk to Jerry Nelson so he would be the first person to ask whether it was a deliberate attempt at an accent, or if the "eh" showed up in certain scripts, or what. -- [[User:Aleal|<font color="Blue">Andrew Leal</font>]] ([[User talk:Aleal|<font color="Blue" size="1">talk</font>]]) 05:27, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Accent?Edit

Relatively recently, someone added this passage: "Gobo speaks with a distinct Canadian accent, a reference to the show's filming location of Ontario, Canada." That "eh"s in Gobo's speech is undeniable, but considering our policy on sourcing, I kind of feel like we should find an actual source for the claim, or else rewrite it with some qualifiers (i.e. "Gobo occasionally peppers his dialogue with a Canadian-sounding "eh," a likely reference to the show's being filmed in Canada").

Agreed entirely. My edits were just a re-wording of a passage added by another user, but your's is much more accurate since, for now, we only have the show as a reference. I'll get to changin' that... -- Jon (talk) 05:56, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Image Edit

Gobofraggle-fullbody

I'd like to see this image changed, the current one is kind of blurry. I uploaded Image:Gobofraggle-fullbody.jpg, it's a full-bodied picture but much clearer than the current one. -- Phillip (talk) 17:28, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

The one you uploaded is off-color. What's on the page now is better IMO. —Scott (talk) 03:38, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Is there any way I can see this picture that someone wanted to replace the current one with? Garrettk41 20:40, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Sure, here it is. -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 00:04, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I've seen that one before. Not a bad one at all. Garrettk41 02:28, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
I don't know. It kind of freaks me out. --Rankin (talk) 18:32, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
