The show's title seems to be derived from the fact that it revolves around a house owned by an infirm 105 year old woman named Madame Foster and her 22 year old granddaughther, Frankie Foster, who takes care of her. They take in imaginary friends who are no longer needed by their creators, due to the fact that they have grown up enough to make themselves a Facebook account and find themselves some real friends. The show also stars a kid named Mac and his imaginary friend Bloo, who both seem to live in Madame Foster's house. However, it is only Bloo who lives there. As of 2009, Fartoon Network has disowned the show, and sent over 100000 apologies to parents of children who kept screaming for chocolate milk.
Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends uses the "Monster of the Week" technique in that each episode is most likely to involve some "Guest" imaginary friend who usually appears only in one episode. On rare occasions, if a guest character becomes popular, he/she/it may appear in an upcoming episode. It is a well known fact that Conan O'Brien has used this technique many times. Fosters also won the 2005 Award for "Most Nostrils In One Frame".
The only characters worth a half gallon of chocolate diarrhea.
Mac is seemingly the main character of the show, as he has appeared in every episode except for episode 17: Mac is Missing where he is kidnapped by an imaginary Grue named Karl. Mac is also responsible for the creation of Bloo, his imaginary friend. One episode, Mac got so hopped up on sugar, he began streaking. This is not an exaggeration, the writers of this show are just that messed up. Somehow, Mac's color is red, while Bloo is blue. No connection has been made, but one Chinese professor has been convinced Mac is Ying, while Bloo is Yang.
Blooregard "Bloo" Q. Kazoo is a short, blue, phallic imaginary friend created by Mac. He is the show's comic relief, which says a lot. Like Mac, Bloo has appeared in most episodes in the series except for episode 32: Bloo Man Group in which he is kidnapped by the Blue Man Group who make a guest appearance in the show. Bloo is well known for his stupidity and get rich quick schemes, especially in episode 24: Bloo Hacks Ebay in which Bloo hacks into Ebay and transfers their money into his bank account. Grew a mustache in 2010 rendering himself as a cousin of some bloke named "Pierre".
Terrance is Mac's abusive older brother. He has a mullet style haircut, which may imply that he's a closet homosexual. However, it is just thought he's lazy. He spontaneously exploded in 2011 after a long battle against indigestion.
Madame Foster is a senile 1005 year old woman and owner of Foster's, AKA her house that takes in "abandoned" imaginary friends. She too has an imaginary friend, a pompus, bossy old rabbit named Mr. Herriman who has a severe addiction to carrots dipped in crack cocaine. Bloo wrecked her bust in episode 07: 'Busted!'.
Mr. Herriman is a pompous imaginary friend who looks like a rabbit
badger and speaks with a British accent. Herriman's accent may be the result of his creation being during Madame Foster's trip to Great Britain when she was 4. He is known for his addictions to carrots dipped in crack cocaine. In the episode Wacky Crack Herriman finds a large amount of crack, and as a subplot, while Bloo attempts to make fake legal tender, Herriman is snuffing, and ends up dead in a dumpster at the end. Bloo finishes the episode with this line "Wow! Someone is down in the dumpster....Herriman??" He also eats diamonds.
Frankie is Madame Foster's granddaughter. It is her job to take care of the imaginary friends, as well as her senile grandmother who has been known to hallucinate. After getting an advanced degree in child psychology, she got a job at her grandmother's place. She is very punk rock, according to Kurt Cobain and a rock. She later devoured an entire cookie factory in episode 56: 'The Great Chocolate Chip Cookie Bomb'.
Goo is a girl with an over active imagination and addiction to coffee and kittens. She is responsible for creating 1/3 of the imaginary friends who live in Madame Foster's house. Her biggest regret was accidentally creating Mecha Hitler, an imaginary friend who resembled a cyborg version of Hitler in episode 18: Three Reichs, You're Out!.
Coco is a bizzare imaginary friend who resembles some kind of mutant bird. She was created by accident by 2 nerds who at the time were debating what animal they should release their pent up sexual aggresion on. Coco has been known to lay eggs at random times, resulting in hundreds of children in episode 7: Bad Eggs.
Eduardo is a large, hairy, behemoth-like imaginary friend with a Mexican accent and 2 large horns on his head. He was mistaken for a demon by the catholic church in episode 12: Eduardo vs. The Vatican. He also eats pink marshmellow peppers.
Wilt is a tall, red imaginary friend with an arm and a half, and one working eye. His other eye was lost (and then replaced) in the tragic "My Rival Sat On My Eye Incident of 1992". He is known for being the world's greatest non-human basketball player. He was created by Michael Jordan. In episode 40: Wilt: God of Basketballism, Wilt is regarded as a god among basketball players.
Cheese was an imaginary friend created by someone mentally retarded. He fears fat chicks and AIDS. He is rumored to be plotting to kick the shit out of Herriman, steal his crack, and take over Fosters. He keeps two teddy bears, one called "Timmy", and the other called "Timmy". Cheese used to be a criminal, stealing millions worth of toy horses but he has done his time and is now annoying people other than his cellmates (They had no chocolate milk or cereal in prison). Was eaten by a green imaginary boogeyman sometime in 2009.
By far the best thing to happen to anyone or anything. Made by an irate French artist sometime in the 1930's in memory of his mother. She hates everything and only likes herself and filet mignon after being fried in black top. She also may like giving everyone makeovers, so they resemble herself more. Tries to destroy everyone and everything in the Series Pilot, only to be run over by a steam roller and rendered a living
work of art two dimensional painting. Turned into a green fluffy dragon sometime before the show ended. Was temporarily adopted by the Queen of England, until she found out Duchess was probably French.
Goofball John McGee
A one time only guest friend in episode 67: 'Everyone Takes A Dump On Frankie'. Made up by Justin Bieber in a vain attempt to make a big brother, Goofball got lost and ended up at Foster's. Resembling a 16 year old bum with a clown nose, Frankie got mad at him because he sharted himself once. This led to a very long episode with Frankie trying to prove him as a fraud, whilst everyone else would go against her just to support a friend they barely know. Eventually, it ended with Justin Bieber finding him at Fosters, and Frankie running him and Goofball over with a steamroller. Also sparked a war in the fandom known as "The Great Goofball Fling Of 2006-2007".
Karl was a grue who kidnapped Mac in episode 17: Mac is Missing. He gave Mac back to Bloo after Karl found out Mac wasn't a grue, but a child with a square head. Karl eventually got adopted by Lady Gaga in episode 49: 'Karl's Last Ride'.
Mecha-Hitler and the Hitler Controversy
Mecha Hitler was a controversial one time guest. An abominable imaginary fiend created by Goo after watching too many WW2 cartoons. Featured in episode 18: Three Reichs, You're Out! when he was smouched by Bloo for Mac's report on Nazi Germany. In the same episode, Mecha-Hitler begins turning everyone in the house into a robot to be his army- except for Goo, Mac, and Bloo. and maybe Duchess. Somehow, everyone survived, except for Mecha-Hitler, who was thrown into an oven and baked into a scrumptious queef loaf. Only Bloo ate it, and thought it tasted like old socks. Episode 18: Three Reichs, You're Out! became the victim of a lot of controversy from various christian groups, as well as the Vatican for the episode's mention of Hitler and the fact that that one of the main characters in the episode was some incarnation, despite the fact that Mecha-Hitler was mearly a caricature of the dictator. The main group that was outraged by the episode was P.A.H.O.T. (Parents Against Hitler On Television) who made very clear that they did not want their teenagers who watch Adult Swim see a man as evil as Hitler in any shape or form on television. As a result of the controversy, the episode was banned from television. However, bootleg versions of the episode can still be found on Youtube. The real Hitler temporarily rose from the dead to watch the infamous episode, only to kill himself again after seeing how terrible it was. If you haven't seen it, don't bother. It's worse than episode 67: 'Everyone Takes A Dump On Frankie'.
The End Of Foster's
After 100000 instances of 6 year old children screaming for chocolate milk and pink horsies, and 500 tons of erotic Frankie fanart, Fartoon Network finally cancelled Foster's, amid much protesting from angsty 15 year olds, 56 year old hippies, and plain old weirdos. It was going to replaced with some piece of garbage called "Chowder", which doesn't feature imaginary friends, nor square headed children or anything worth watching. However, both shows were cancelled in favor of 30 minute long advertisements for sugar rolls, amid budget cuts. It is implied in the last episode of Foster's that nothing changed and everything got more boring. So you're not missing anything! Really! Now go watch something else like My Little Pony or something! Don't waste your life over a cancelled cartoon! Go make progress! End world hunger! Make a new invention! Or something.
