Random facts: Raggy is quite possibly one of the most famous, most well-developed
characters that Kurt has created on the ice (and off). The persona of
Raggy tends to pervade not only the program itself, but all of Kurt's
actions before and after the program. For the 1999 CSOI and 1999-2000
SOI tours, the character of Raggy wandered in and out throughout the
show, interacting with the audience and the other skaters. The
program was originally developed for the Canadian Stars on Ice tour,
which had a clown-themed number in 1999, with Michael Seibert finding
the music for it, and Sandra and Kurt working on the choreography.
Kurt has resurrected this program and character on and off over the
years for various galas and shows, usually at the request of the
organizers.
