Frances "Frankie" Foster/Duchess
Blooregard "Bloo" Q. Kazoo
Joey was adopted.
Eduardo calls the toy spider "insecto," which is obviously Spanish for "insect," but spiders are arachnids.
Mac: What are we gonna do? What are we gonna do? This...this isn't working at all!
Bloo: We've gotta get rid of the enemy once and for all and I've got just the plan! Operation: Eight-legged Drop Purple Scardy Cat Run and Scramble! Tactical maneuvering of the arbor rally point will lead to the deployment of the ultimate weapon that will unleash a devastating chain reaction the likes of which the galaxy has never known!
Bloo: (sigh) We're gonna drop this fake spider on Eduardo, he'll freak out, and everyone will run away.
Wilt: Here, have a cupcake.
Bloo: I don't want no... (Swipes a cupcake and eats it) ...stinking cupcake.
Herriman: (Reading adoption papers) Name of friend: So-and-so? Adopted to: Mr. Man and Lady Ladyington! (Crumpling paper up) This is preposterous poppycock!
Mac: (Trying to remember how a joke went) ...And I think it had something to do with a coconut. (smiles) Hey! I think I got it!
Herriman: Master Mac,...
Mac: (frowns) *sigh* And now it's gone.
Mr. Herriman: And where would you be taking our good friend, Coco?
Mac: Well, you see... (Slight pause) She's embararrased. (Whispers to Herriman) Coco's nude.
Mr. Herriman: Well, technically, most of our friends here are nude.
Mac: Hey, I guess you're right... Pantsless Joe. (Slight pause, alarm goes off, Herriman covers under his shirt)
Bloo: Sorry, Wilt, but this hurts me more than it hurts you!
Mac: Yeah, Wilt. Sorry.
Wilt: (With tape around his mouth) No, I'm sorry.
Wilt: I'm sorry, but this hurts me more than it hurts you.
Mac & Bloo: (With tape around their mouths) No, wait! I'm sorry...
Bloo: Wanna cupcake?
Wilt: Don't change the subject, please.
Bloo: (While pushing Wilt over) TIMBER!
(Kids are running off of school bus)
Mac: But how can you be on a school bus?! It's SATURDAY!
Mac: What are we going to do?
Bloo: That's a good question. And I know just the answer. (Eats cupcake, burps, gets an evil smile)
Wilt: (Cheerfully) Here, have a cupcake!
Bloo: I don't want no (Grabs cupcake, eats it, and talks while eating) stinking... cupcake!
Fast Forward: 1) There would be another "Adopt-A-Thought Saturday", streamlined by Goo Goo Gaga in "Neighbor Pains", much to the dismay of one Old Man Rivers. 2) Another chase scene akin to Benny Hill was seen in "The Buck Swaps Here."
Lauren Faust indicated that the end credits were originally going to display a dozen Imaginary Friends from the episode, and put black censor bars over their crotches.
Kids' WB! airdate: August 13, 2005.
Animation Studio: Boulder Media, Ltd.
Title Card Sound: Drums in a marching beat.
Human Debut: Jenny.
Imaginary Friend Debut: Jokey the Clown.
Running Gag: Coco continuously ending up outside, much to Mac's annoyance.
Credits: Bloo dancing on the porch to the Foster's theme. In the background, originally was heard the bit beginning from "Most imaginary friends are nude" to "OK, pantsless Joe".
One of the imaginary friends we see looks a lot like the character Cousin Itt, from the show, The Addams Family.
For the first time, Wilt's height is - literally - his downfall.
Mr. Herriman, for the first time, realizes that he does not have pants on.
This episode at first, did not appear with closed captioning, unlike previous episodes.
This episode proves that Eduardo can become very dangerous to anyone (even to those he knows) if he gets his feelings hurt to such an extent.
The friend Bloo tries to take away in "Phone Home" appears in this episode.
Mr. Herriman: Mr. Man and Lady Ladington...
Mr. Man and Mrs. Lady are two of the many supporting characters on Boohbah. There is also a children's book series in the UK (and a Cartoon Network animated series) called "The MIster Men", known in the animated series as "The Mr. Men and Little Miss Show".
n/a: Chase Scene
The chase scene at the end (and the variation on Foster's theme music) was an obvious homage to all the chase scenes from The Benny Hill Show.
Episode Title: Adoptcalypse Now
The episode title is taken from the movie Apocalypse Now (1979, directed by Francis Ford Coppola) is about movie about a man named Captain Willard, who is sent into Cambodia to kill Colonel Kurtz.
