I love this cartoon! It's so funny, even by adult standards. I also admire it because it has virtually no "potty humor", so parents can feel confident in letting their kids get into it. It doesn't come accross as "educational", but does handle things like friendship, loyalty, courage, peer pressure, self esteem, and other such virtues. On TV it's rated Y7, probably because some younger kids might find some of the imaginary friends a little scary looking, particularly the "Extremesaurs", aka the imaginary friends created by "jerky teenage boys", but they don't make very many apperances. But even if some of the friends are "monsters", you can't find any funnier or nicer, other than maybe in puppet form. =)
The two disk DVD set comes in a standard plasic DVD case with a cardboard slipcover. Nice quality. The stock photo is of the slipcover. The case itself has scenes from the episode Store Wars.Read more ›
From an animation standpoint alone, "Fosters..." is most enjoyable with its clean, cut out, mod 1950's-1960's motif that draws so much from period artists like Charlie Harper. Did I also mention that it has one of the all-time best theme songs ever?
This DVD is a must-have for cartoon fans of all ages.
With lines like "I'm a hot toe picker", "I have gingivitis", and countless others who wouldn't like this?
Watch the madcap mania in the first thirteen episodes of the TV show including the "House of Bloo's" premiere movie. (Note that these three episodes are in a "separate" form; unlike the way Cartoon Network showed the whole movie in its entirety.) Join the crazy antics led by Blooregard Q. Kazoo (or just plain Bloo) and his other imaginary pals Coco, Wilt, Eduardo, and a whole lot more friends that live in this bigger than life mansion of Madame Foster. Some of these (mis)adventures include the time Bloo broke the statue of Madame Foster, the episode where he opened a secret door unleashing a swarm of tiny friends, and the one where he tapes some rather embarassing footage of the uptight Mr. Herriman.
There are also some great special features on this DVD like a behind-the-scenes interview with creator Craig McCracken (the dude that also brought you "The Powerpuff Girls") and staff. There's even some exculsive promos on this DVD, a list of some of the other imaginary friends with rather detailed descriptions, and - OOH ! - a commentary by Frankie, Mac, and Bloo on the "Store Wars" episode. (Something I didn't expect since "Cartoon Network Christmas, Volume 3".) And another thing, you won't see the end credit animations after each episode because they're all compiled together in the special features under the name "End Credit Gags".
One more thing: if you see something "gleam" on the "Main Menu" and/or "Episode Selection" screen, you'll know that it's a "hidden feature" just waiting to be seen. Just check it out.
This is really one imaginative series you'll want to own on DVD. I certainly hope the second season comes out real soon with even more fun !
