** The Minstrels don't have as much screen time, but their roles are a bit more clear-cut. TricksterMentor Cantus is clearly TheHero of the group; with OnlySaneMan Murray as TheLancer. What roles the others play seem to be along the lines of Brool as TheBigGuy (mainly due to his size and his hinted past as a warrior), Brio as TheSmartGuy, and not-too-bright Balsam as TheChick.

Added DiffLines:

* BrotherhoodOfFunnyHats: Mokey's attempts to get into one of these (which seems to alternate between incredibly serious and incredibly silly) make up the story of one episode.

Added DiffLines:

* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: The main non-human species of Fraggle Rock all speak English (or whatever language the given version of the show is written in). Not only that, but they will sometimes make reference to certain animals, technological devices, etc. that they have little plausible reason to be familiar with, but which the audience would readily understand. This seems to be especially frequent in song lyrics. Then there's the lighting; See HollywoodDarkness, below.

** Matt tends to hear words incorrectly. He misinterpreted "''city'' creatures."

* FantasticRacism

to:

* FantasticRacismFantasticRacism: A major underpinning of the initial interspecies relations in the show. The various central species (Fraggles, Doozers, Gorgs, and humans) start out misunderstanding each other at worst, and knowing nothing about one another at best. Gradual bridge-building occurs as the series develops.

* {{Adorkable}}: Wembley. So very much.

* {{Adorkable}}: Wembley. So very much. He's sweet-natured and earnest but nervous, awkward, and lacking in confidence.

* {{Neologism}}: "Wemble", a verb meaning "to be pathologically indecisive". A "wembler" is a person who wembles, and "wembley" is an adjective describing a person who wembles (and it's also an acceptable name to give a child in Fraggle Rock -- though according to Wembley, the people who named him apparently thought it meant "makes his mind up easily.")

According to the ancient Fraggle language, "wembling" meant "scratching your nose".
