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

Very creative and interesting!
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is a very interesting piece indeed. It is extremely creative and funny, a combination of wit and humor. The storyline follows an eight year old boy named Mac (yes, he's eight, mistakes in the plot section) must give up his beloved imaginary friend, Blooregard Q. Kazoo, because his mother believes he has outgrown him, and Mac's older brother Terrence treats Mac like a baby. Mac stumbles across a large house belonging to Madame Foster, a childish old lady and her imaginary rabbit friend, Mr. Herriman, who keeps the place in schedule.

Bloo realizes that if he is put in Foster's, he would be up for adoption like the rest of the Imaginary Friends at Foster's, but in the end, Madame Foster allows him to stay in Foster's without being adopted, as long as Mac visits him every day.

Bloo meets many friends, such as tall, helpful Wilt, the injured one-eyed, one-armed 'basketball player' imaginary friend who always has a smile despite his painful past, Eduardo, a large, purple beast imaginary friend with a skull buckle, fangs, and large horns, but is afraid of everything that moves, and Coco, a strange bird-plant-airplane imaginary friend that only says Coco, but lays strange colorful plastic eggs that contain prizes.

In short, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is extremely creative and fun for the whole family, each episode has some strange wacky mix-up and a whole lot of laughs. The creativity of Foster's is unbelievable- Imaginary Friends coming to life as you think them. In my opinion, Foster's deserves a 10-10.
