Talk:Gaspode

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I'm kinda new to this whole Wiki thing, so I don't want to go messing with the article until I'm more confident of my ability. First, I don't beleive Gaspode was missing a leg in Moving Pictures. One leg is badly injured near the end of the book, but he manages to walk on it. Can someone confirm this? It's possible I just missed the part where it said he had three legs. Also, At the end of Moving Pictures the Holy Wood magic that initialy allowed him to speak begins to fade and he loses the ability, though he is aware of this and still appears to be able to think in human terms. Perhaps eating the refuse around Unseen University resparked the ability? Though he is not identified by name, there is mention of Foul Ole Ron's dog in Soul music. Is this Gaspode as well? If so, should that novel be listed as one he appears in? --Darthbeandip 14:24, 16 February 2007 (CET)

No, I don't think he's missing any legs. Yes, he's been hanging out with Foul Ole Ron for years.--Old Dickens 16:19, 16 February 2007 (CET)

I added Soul Music under Cameos.--Darthbeandip 16:47, 18 April 2007 (CEST)

Speaking Ability

The end of Moving Pictures is fairly psychedelic. Gaspode seems to lose his human voice, among other phenomena, but he could speak when he first appeared, never having been to Holy Wood. He talks wherever we meet him again; perhaps he just needed to get back for some leftovers at UU. --Old Dickens 00:16, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

humans hearing Gaspode

Sam Vimes heard him - though without knowing who was speaking - in "Feet Of Clay"... in the midst of Ron's muttering, a clear sentence ("Queen Molly says to watch your back...") emerges, obviously spoken by Gaspode. (unsigned comment by MikePhoenix, 5 February 2017‎)
