Fraggle Ecology by lazesummerstone Fraggle Ecology by lazesummerstone
Ahhh my final Threadless submission! Sorry there’s been so many of these lately from me, they just kept doing contests that I really NEEDED to enter.
I’m not confident about winning anything, but if you want, you can vote for this ultracomplicated explination of Fraggle ecology on Threadless:

Also if you could give my other submission a vote too I'd greatly appreciate the help!

Thank you so much!
And yeah, I just realized that the graph says "beets" when they're supposed to be "Radish" !!! (I was eating a Beet salad at the time and it got stuck in my brain) I'll fix if this entry was to win. :dance:

What a wonderful visual interpretation of how the Fraggles' world works! Love all the little details and the presentation of the information. I've added this to my favorites.

I haven't heard anything and it's been a few months now. So I doubt I won. But thanks a lot for the kind words Skifi!

I didn't follow fraggle rock when I was little, so I don't get some of the reasoning behind this, but still, ain't that the coolest graphic ever? I'm sure any fan of the series would LOVE to wear it as a T shirt. It's so ful of colours and fun! Good luck at the contest, really!

I like it. It seems to sum up the ecology of Fraggle Rock nicely.

But ... (there had to be a "but," to spoil things, of course) ... the vegetable that Fraggles steal from the Gorg's garden and that Doozers make into construction materials isn't a beet. They steal radishes, which are as far as I know totally different even if they look rather the same. European radishes are typically about the size of a strawberry, are very crisp and usually eaten raw. They taste peppery. The beet or beetroot is larger, and commonly eaten after it has been cooked or pickled. When pickled, the slices are bright purple and -- as far as I'm concerned -- taste awful. But many people like them. Their appearance is similar to the radish but generally the bottom of the beet is more longer and more pointy. I'd say that beets are a somewhat darker colour as well.

Well, the radishes the Fraggles consume, the Doozers built their Doozer stick towers from, and the Gorgs use as an agent for anti-vanishing cream is both eaten raw and cooked. The latter usually from Boober's laundry list of culinary delicacies.

What I never understood is what the Gorgs got out of the ecological cycle.  If the Doozers and Fraggles disappeared overnight, the Gorgs would go on growing radishes and never notice the change.  It was radishes they need, not Doozers or Fraggles.  But Doozers and Fraggles do need Gorgs, since radishes don't grow themselves.  If the Gorgs feel a little short changed when their radishes are pinched, they have good reason it seems.

I think the Gorg's water is the most direct need for the Fraggles, because the pipe bangers made Doc send more water down whenever the Gorgs drained the Fraggle Pond. Otherwise the Gorgs would only have one bucket of water from the well for every time the human world flushed the system.
Also the Fraggles serve as a unknown go between for the Gorg's and Silly Creatures. If it weren't for Boober, a Fraggle, the water would have been poisoned, including the Gorg's water.

The Gorgs are a bit of an enigma, as I see them.  You are accurate about the story where Doc's water is contaminated and contaminates the Gorg's river ... but can the ground water under one small house lot somewhere on the seaside really contaminate an entire river somewhere on the other side of The Rock?  Well, maybe, if it's toxic enough it can.  One leaky reactor in Japan seems to be doing a good job of irradiating the Pacific Ocean, for example.  But I doubt very much if the river itself comes entirely from Doc's world via The Rock.  There's also a swamp in the Gorg world.  As I said, the Gorgs themselves are a bit of a n enigma.  We've never seen any others, though there are a couple of paintings in the "palace" and stories about Gorgs in the past.  I'm inclined to believe that despite their pretensions, these three may be the last i the world.  It would explain why he has no subjects but thinks he's king.  *Once* Gorgs were kings and *had* subjects.  But, there's another puzzle.  In one of the last episodes, Junior has succeeded his father as king and emperor, and immediately abolishes the monarchy ... as a practical expression of his decision he throws the crown into the air ... to land somewhere no one knows.  But, strangely, we discover that the gigantic Gorg crown has landed in Doc's world!  Is the Gorg world and ours on the same planet?  How?  My best guess is that there may be Fraggle Holes in the air as well as in the ground, and the crown passed through one. Oh, if only I had Jim Henson's soul in a bottle, so I could ask him all these stupid questions!

Oh well... at least you hadn't mistaken radishes for cigars or haggis.

This is so much fun to look at. I especially love the esoteric details you've included here. Their song feeds the Ditzies, which provide light. Doc's water heater is correctly placed. If this was a poster I'd buy it.

However...beets? And it's "youth and beauty cream" aka "anti-vanishing cream." Yes, I know, I'm a stinkin' nitpicker.
