A Doozer who doesn't Do becomes a Fraggle

One evening I received a message on my mobile saying "A Doozer who doesn't Do becomes a Fraggle". For some time I had no idea what to do with the information. It tumbled aimlessly around in my head together with other pieces of juicy (though seemingly useless) information like the cannon that was invented to shoot chickens at high-speed trains to test the windows, and the fact that sea-trout is not waterproof. However - after a while I realized that the Doozer-information would be a great theme for the project to be developed. The project now has a sense of direction though it is still under development.

This is some information about the Doozers:

"Within Fraggle Rock lives a second species of small humanoid creatures, the pudgy green ant-like Doozers. Standing only 6 inches tall (knee high to a fraggle), Doozers are in a sense anti-Fraggles; their lives are dedicated to work and industry. Doozers spend much of their time busily constructing all manner of scaffolding throughout Fraggle Rock using miniature construction equipment and wearing hardhats and work boots. No one but the Doozers themselves seem to understand the actual purpose of their intricate and beautiful constructions. Often their building is accompanied by marching songs and various doozer chants.

To ensure that they always have a steady stream of work to do, Doozers build their constructions out of an edible candy-like substance (manufactured from radishes) which is greatly enjoyed by Fraggles. They actually want the Fraggles to eat their constructions because "architecture's supposed to be enjoyed" and also so they can go on to build again. This is essentially the only interaction between Doozers and Fraggles; Doozers spend most of their time building, and Fraggles spend much of their time eating Doozer buildings, which they think taste like marshmallows. They thus form an odd sort of symbiosis."
