Fraggle Bones by Negaduck9 Fraggle Bones by Negaduck9
I like drawing skeletons. To me they are not representations of death, but of structure. Since I've been Fragglin' out, why not try figuring out what a Fraggle skeleton looks like?

Most of it is basically humanoid, with alterations to accommodate their size and lifestyle. The skull was a bit tricky, however. We know they have teeth, even though we hardly ever see them (Convincing John being the most obvious exception), so I've given them herbivore molars & incisors, no eyeteeth. Eye sockets on top, of course. Precious little brain case, but they seem to make do. This pic was drawn without reference material, by the way, so don't look too closely at the hands and joints.

No Fraggles were harmed in the making of this image, despite it looking like something exhumed from the back of Junior Gorg's garden. A Fraggle simply fell asleep while waiting in line at the airport and got slipped through the X-ray machine.

EDIT: Argh! I left out the hyoid bone. What the heck was I thinking?How are they supposed to sing all day without that?

Very interesting. This could be a very accurate skeleton of a Fraggle. :)

Wow! That's pretty cool! But quick question...what's the hyoid bone? Confused

It's the bone in the throat. The larynx, tongue, and other structures are attached to it.

Ah, so that's why the Fraggles won't be able to sing. I'm going to tell my biology teacher this tomorrow! :D

Looks interesting indeed.
Well, however I've always thought that Fraggles are bird-like creatures of a sort.

Some people do take them that way. However, they seem mammalian to me because they have teeth (look at Convincing John), they have tails, they have flexible snouts, and they don't seem to understand what eggs are ("Wembley's Egg"), indicating that they give live birth.

This is hilarious! I one day again will restart my collection of skulls; like you, bones fascinate me...the architecture of structure, yes indeed. This is adorable.
