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

Real good
6 September 2004 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

Let me tell you what sold me on this show: The title. "Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends" the TV listings said. Obviously, it was a show about a retirement-like home for imaginary friends who had, for some reason or another, worn out their usefulness. Then I turned it on and saw the pilot movie one afternoon. I thought it was the best new cartoon show I'd seen since "Invader ZIM" (although the shows are about as different as night and day).

Kids shows should look cute. That's just a rule. And this one brings fond memories of "Fairly Odd Parents" "Dexter's Laboratory" and other recent additions to the Hall of Cartoon Fame. The main character, Bloo, is just a blue blob, but he's a great character.

But the best part of the show is it's imagination. Obviously, a show about imaginary friends is going to have a lot to do with that, but I've always thought that a kids' show should be imaginative. And this show is very original.

Anyway, it's on Fridays at 7 on Cartoon Network. I hope you enjoy it. I think you will.
