Fraggles versus Minions by Petzrick Fraggles versus Minions by Petzrick
The thought process that led to this poster is logical. First, there was a desire to tribute Jim Henson, who is a fantastic source of inspiration. Jim Henson's "Fraggle Rock" (1983-1987) has always been truly important to me, since I first watched it as a child in the 80s. Fraggles do the right thing and never make choices based upon morally corrupt motives. In all ways, they represent GOOD.

In reversing that concept, my mind immediately went to the 1987 children's horror film, "The Gate." When I was little, this film connected with me in a way completely opposite of the goodness of Fraggle Rock. The minions, and the amazing stop-motion and forced perspective work that brought them to life, truly terrify me and always will. I dare not think about minions too much while outside at night. They represent EVIL.

Both are small underground-dwelling creatures. And I believe if these two universes crossed, they would immediately become sworn enemies. And despite Fraggles having no concept of "war," it would become necessary to wage an all out battle with the creatures unleashed from The Gate.

"In a time before the earth, before the sun and before the light of the stars, when all was darkness and chaos! The old gods, the forgotten gods, ruled the darkness!! But what was theirs now belongs to the world light and substance, and the old gods, the rightful masters, are jealous!!! Watching mankind with a hatred that is as boundless as the stars, with plans for the destruction of man that are beyond imagining… Hahahahah!"

"There is a passageway between our physical world of light and pleasure, and their spiritual world of madness and pain!! A gate, behind which the demons wait, for the chance, to take back, what is theirs!!! Hahahahaha!"

Sorry for my delay in responding!  This is quite a response, thank you!  People who haven't seen The Gate seriously don't know what they're missing.

You're welcome! The cool use of perspective and the too-many-details-to-name regarding each character made this a winner for sure :nod:

Thank you! I literally came up with this based on emotion. I thought of how good Fraggle Rock makes me feel, then I went after the complete opposite.
