For those of you who aren't familiar with this half-hour flash animation I took the liberty of copying a summary of the series from here:
In this world, imaginary friends become real the instant a kid thinks them up. Everyone can see them, everyone can talk to them -- but what happens when a kid outgrows his friend? Then that friend is welcome to Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, the adoption center, owned by old Madame Foster, that provides a home for them, until a child, in need of an imaginary friend, who can't think their own up, comes to adopt them.It's showing on 10 a.m. every Saturday on Cartoon Network. Hopefully next week I'd remember to forego watching a Seinfeld episode and catch this one.
One such friend there is Blooregard Q. Kazoo, the creation of 8-year-old clever, yet shy Mac, who's mother tells him he's too old for Bloo. Though Bloo felt that "adoption is not an option," Mac convinced him to stay long enough that, after a sinister plan devised by self-centered Duchess fails, Mac proves his loyalty. Moved by his loyalty and pure imagination, Madame Foster, herself, states that Bloo may stay at Foster's without ever having to worry about being adopted. In return, all Mac has to do is visit every day.
This isn't a problem, considering that Mac would rather spend his after-school time with Bloo and all the other wacky friends, than at home, with his 13-year-old stupid, bullying brother, Terrence. Every day, thanks to Bloo's crazy scheming, the gang end up in wacky adventures that involve mall hectics, toothpaste-covered stone busts, laundry chute jumping, and much, much more.
