  • Episode Description
  • Mr. Herriman becomes addicted to carrots. Meanwhile, Bloo tries desperately to avoid eating Frankie's "it" by doing bad things, but Mr. Herriman ignores or misinterprets the bad deeds and sends everyone else to bed with no supper instead. Also, Frankie learns to cook "it" under the guiding (and painful) wooden spoon of Madame Foster.

  • I didn't really liked this episode of Mr.Herriman because of the parts when he was shouting on the imaginary friends that who ever was near to the carrot hide out of Mr.Herriman....... the other parts were funny and good. It was still a good episode.

    • Police Officer in helicopter: Drop the diamonds, Rabbit. Mr. Herriman: Diamonds? Oh no, silly. These aren't diamonds. They're carrots. (Opens up bag) Police Officer: Yeah, about a hundred of 'em.

    • Bloo: Blooreguard Q. Kazoo, you've outdone yourself. (A huge crane with a recking ball is then shown) GUESS WHO'S NOT COMING TO DINNER!

    • Bloo: When Mr. Herriman sees me messing up Madame Foster's bed, he'll send me to my room for sure. Then it's good bye "it" and hello...hello...hello to saying good bye to "it"

    • (As the credits roll, we see Bloo after eating a serving of "it", he groans) Bloo: Oh. That's ... it. (Frankie comes in screen left with another helping) Frankie: This is for gluing the furniture on the ceiling. And make sure you leave room for banana hallway and condiment couch.

    • Madame Foster: (To Frankie) Now, let's see how you did, girl. (Tastes Frankie's cooking) Hmm... It's... It's... Awful! Just like my grandma used to make. I knew you had it in you.

    Notes (12)

    • Mr. Herriman says that he just started his obsession with carrots again. His obsession might have been spurred when the bunnies gave him carrots to eat in "Camp Keep a Good Mac Down."

    • There's some continuity in this episode. When Blooregard does the clown drawing on the portrait, it goes back to Duchess of Wails, where the Applebees portrait along with the one of their grandmother were vandalized by Bloo and Mac with moustaches and clowns drawn over. In both cases, red crayons were used.

    • Clumsy from "The Trouble With Scribbles" makes a cameo.

    • This is the second time Frankie calls Bloo "Blob boy". The first was in "World Wide Wabbit".

    • What "it" is, is never revealed.

    Trivia (4)

    • (As the credits roll, we see Bloo after eating a serving of "it", he groans) Bloo: Oh. That's ... it. (Frankie comes in screen left with another helping) Frankie: This is for gluing the furniture on the ceiling. And make sure you leave room for banana hallway and condiment couch. However near the midpoint of the episode, Bloo never did glue furniture to the ceiling, he broke a series of them in a hallway by using a feather and ingenuity to make a chain reaction.

    • In "The Trouble With Scribbles," Mac claims that Clumsy can't walk two steps without falling over. Yet when Mr. Herriman scares Clumsy and the other imaginary friends to their rooms, Clumsy is able to run away without falling over.

    • Mr. Herriman gave Bloo a warning for dismantling "the only mode of transportation" Foster's had. Yet, during his carrot craze, he opens the hood of a Foster vehicle (proof is on the hood's design of the Foster's logo) to get some carrots. It's nearly impossible for a dismantled vehicle to be repaired in that short amount of time.

    • Mr. Herriman said that he lost one-hundred carrots, but on the fireplace, it looked like there were only about eight or so.

    Allusions (8)

    • Comic Strip: Calvin and Hobbes Bloo's reluctance to eat Frankie's dish ("It") in this episode is similar to a running gag from the C&H comics where Calvin would often be forced to eat a similar looking green foodstuff for dinner despite his protests. In fact both Calvin and Bloo liken their respective meals to vomit, and have pretty much the same reaction when taking a bite.

    • The way Mr. Herriman eats carrots is similar to Cookie Monster from "Sesame Street" way of eating Cookies.

    • They are playing the Nintendo GameCube in this ep again.

    • Mac: I'm too young to go to jail! This an allusion to the normal line of panic in a crisis: "I'm too young to die."

    • Wilt: Writing at the blackboard. Wilt writing at a blackboard ("I will not stand on rugs") is likely a tribute to the openings on The Simpsons which finds Bart writing on a blackboard as punishment.
