Storyline

Eight-year-old Mac has outgrown his imaginary friend, says his mother, so he takes his buddy Bloo (a walking, talking security blanket) to Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Here all sorts of odd characters, given up by their creators, are welcome to stay until new kids come to adopt them. Mac strikes a deal with Madame Foster, the proprietor: as long as he comes to visit every day, Bloo will not be put up for adoption. Written by Alan Back

One of the best cartoons!
6 June 2005 | by Queen_of_ShadowsSee all my reviews

I highly recommend this cartoon for children and as for teenagers and possibly adults,there is some humor most children might not understand.

Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is about well...a home for unwanted imaginary friends.8-year-old Mac is an intelligent yet shy boy who's only friend in the world is his blue blob-like imaginary friend Bloo.Bloo is a cunning and mischievous friend who helps Mac through life such as dealing with his older and tougher 13-year-old brother Terrance.Unfortunately,Mac's mom demands Mac to get rid of Bloo because she believes Mac is too old for an imaginary friend.With no clue what to do,Bloo discovers foster's home for imaginary friends.However,once an imaginary friend is brought to foster's,they will be put up for adoption.However,Madam Foster,the owner of the home makes an exception for Bloo to stay without being adopted on one condition,Mac comes to visit Bloo everyday.Mac accepts the deal and from that day on while Bloo waits for Mac to visit,Bloo always manages to make new friends,discover new adventures and run into more trouble everyday.

Cartoons are mainly aimed for children however,teenagers and adults would enjoy this program.The characters are three dimensional,the lines are full of laughs,there are running gags throughout each episode and there are tons of spoofs.Somehow the characters can be considered role models.Wilt is the optimistic,cheerful and helpful imaginary friend in the house and doesn't care about his appearance(he has a dented eye and is missing one arm).Eduardo is the sweet,shy and caring imaginary Spanish bull who looks terrifying.Despite that,he can rip something to pieces if Mac or any of his friends are endangered. Bloo is the most three-dimensional character in the whole show but that's just my opinion.The writers somehow put Bloo in the middle.He can be selfish and power-hungry yet at times he's considerate of people or imaginary friends' feelings.The best part about the episodes other than the running gags and various spoofs is that the plot is highly unpredictable.While watching some episodes,you may know what's going to happen however,it may always be the opposite of what you imagined.The humor is rated for children and adults in every episode. There is not one character the viewers can't hate.This show is better than you could imagine.10/10.
