    We've all done it every now and then; we've questioned our faith and why it is what it is. And it's not just us Silly Creatures either, no even fraggles like Gobo have doubts every now and then. After questioning the great bell's existence we see Gobo struggling to come to terms with this while many memorable songs are sung, our favorite minstrel appears, uncle Matt tries to interpret our world, and Doc and Sprocket? What Fraggle fan would pass up an oppurtunity to sing some very merry christmas songs, get another glimpse of Cantus and his subtle funniness, or Boober singing Weeba Weeba? I know I wouldn't!moreless
