Character Bio

Boober Fraggle photo
Unlike other Fraggles, Boober does not like fun and games and spends most of his time worrying about doom and disease. When he's not worrying about himself, he's busy warning others. He is easily frightened and suffers from a variety of phobias like a fear of heights. Because of his fears, he is very knowledgeable about health and superstition. He has a lucky charm for just about anything -- often multiples.

According to Boober Fraggle, there are only two things certain in this world: death and laundry. Boober is terrified by the former and fascinated by the latter. He is also paranoid and superstitious. According to Boober, anything that can go wrong surely will, and when it does, it will inevitably happen to him. Boober denies that he is a hypochondriac; he claims he is just practicing the symptoms because he’s bound to get the diseases. But Boober’s negative attitude has a big plus – he can see real trouble coming a mile away, a useful attribute in a land of eternal optimists. Boober’s two joys in life are doing the Fraggle laundry and cooking. He loves spending a fine morning washing socks, an action-packed afternoon watching them dry – and a delightful evening baking up a delectably light radish soufflé to serve to his friends. Boober lives on his own in a hole. He often hangs out with Wembley Fraggle and is easily annoyed by Red Fraggle's endless enthusiasm. It is revealed that Boober is allergic to dogs. Inside his dreams, Boober has a fun alter ego named Sidebottom, he also likes to warn other Fraggles of impending doom.

As the series progresses, Boober gradually and notably becomes less pessimistic in personality and eventually begins to appreciate some of the fun things that Fraggles usually like to do!
