  • Quotes (12)

    • Frankie: (after hearing the song, at Mr.Herriman's office, banging on the doors) Bloo! You dirty, rotten, cheating, stinking little. Bloo: Name calling. That's what you sunken to? For shame, Frankie, for shame.

    • Wilt: Hey Jackie. Name please. Jackie: You know my name. Wilt: I know, but you have to tell me so I can look you up in this book. It's the law. Jackie: (Folds arms) I hate politics.

    • Frankie: You can have... my old job. Mr. Herriman: No, no I think it's for the best. Besides I like my new job.

    • Frankie: A vote for me is a vote for freedom! Wilt: Wow! You got my vote!

    Notes (12)

    • Coco got one vote during election. She did not run for president though. (Reply: She can only write "Coco", and because of that, Balloty probably misinterpreted her vote)

    • The name of the "Hairy Stick Friend" is heard for the first time, named Jackie.

    • Canadian Airdate: March 15,2006

    • Look for the first imaginary Santa and listen (closely) for the jazzy version of "Jingle Bells" used in the holiday episode A Lost Claus.

    • Credits: Bloo at the debate podium with fire on either side.

    Trivia (9)

    • Goof: When Wilt asks Jackie Khones his name, Wilt says that it's the law to look him up in the book and give him a fun sticker that says "I Voted". Giving him the sticker is not the law, but it isn't against the law.

    • It seems that Frankie's pay is larger than Mr. Herriman's even though he is the president of the house.

    • Why would Frankie and Mr. Herriman get paid? Foster's is a non-profit organization. The only money it gets is from donations, and that money should only be for buying food and paying bills. Correction: While the majority of the money a Non-profit earns through donations and events goes towards their cause, they also have employees they need to pay, so that the Non-profit can continue to do its good work. They are almost just like any other business, although their employees usually get paid less than their corporate counterparts. Most non-profits can not run on volunteers alone. Beside I am sure Frankie needs a salary just like any other person with a job.

    • Bloo said that all of the things Mac named that he's done Bloo said they all were all Mr. Herriman's fault. This is not true. Mr. Herriman did not even appear in "Frankie My Dear" or "Squeakerboxxxxxxx", and in "Cookie Dough", Bloo was the boss of Mr. Herriman! Reply: I think someone missed the point of the joke here. Maybe this thought will help: expecting logic from Bloo is like expecting rationality from a psychopath.

    • When the advert said that 22 years ago Frankie could barely speak a word and spent most of her time sleeping and crying, Frankie claimed it to be all lies but 22 years ago was when she was born so it wasn't all lies. Unless Frankie wasn't born a baby.

    • Abraham Bloo When Bloo is on the debate, he has a beard which makes him look like Abraham Lincoln.

    • Mme. Foster: Quote from Spider-Man. Madame Foster says to Frankie "with great power comes great responsibility" this is a reference to the movie Spider-Man, in which Peter Parker/Spider-Man is told the same thing by his uncle.

    • Answer: 2+3=42 Bloo's answer to 2+3, 42, is a possible refrence to Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy by Douglas Adams, in which the answer to "Life, the universe, and everything", was Forty-Two.

    • Name: Billy the Squid Reference to "Billy the Kid".

    • Disclaimer: From the 2004 Presidential Election in the USA. When Mr. Herriman says "I'm Mr. Herriman and I approve this message", he refers to the new disclaimer that was used during the 2004 USA Presidential campaign between incumbent George W. Bush and opponent John Kerry.
