After scrolling through several long threads, I still haven't found the reference to Chef Carla and the Fraggle Rock character. Can anyone steer me in the right direction, please? Thanks.

    not sure why you need it, but it's right there in the OP, and in the very first reply...

      Thank you. Want to send a picture to a friend, and I couldn't remember the name of the character. Okay, so I'm blind!

          Nope - that's Red from Fraggle Rock that Carla resembles!

              She looks like Red Fraggle, but she's also got some of the spiritual elements of Mokey Fraggle.

                She definitely has the spiritual aspects of Mokey! Good call.

                And I just *loved* Fraggle Rock when it was on HBO! I was 25yo when it started, but still loved watching it.

                  Coincidentally, Mokey's job was to gather the radishes. (Peas, veggies, whatever ;-)

                  I was also "too old" when Fraggle Rock was on HBO, but still loved it. The theme music can still set me smiling.

        Thanks, LindaWhit. As soon as I looked up Beaker, I knew that was wrong. I found the right picture, but I'm really glad to know her name is Red.

          I have to say that every time my daughter and I look at her we think of Jar-Jar Binks form the new Star Wars series.....
