Blooregard "Bloo" Q. Kazoo
When Bloo starts interfering with The Loved and the Lovedless show, it immediately pauses at the scene with the nurses. How is that possible if it is a television program and nobody could have paused it?
There is a huge "cake mistake." First, Bloo is eating cake. Then, he's eating pie. But that was just the appetizer of the goof: Bloo had just finished the cake before he was seen eating pie. There wasn't even pie on the table in that scene.
You see Bloo eating a corn dog with mustard. Soon, when he is finished eating it, the stick holding the corn dog changes into a fork.
Mac: You may be selfish, you may be self-centered, you may have sold me out for a rubberband ball, but you'll always be my best friend.
Slade: How could I have been so foolish? I'll fight for us to the end!
Terrance: Ummmm I was...channel stuck!!!
Bloo: You're holing me back.
Mac: Holding you back?
Bloo: Me, me. Is it Me?
Berry: It's MAC, MAC, MAC!
Bloo: That was totally my next guess!
News Reporter:(on TV) An imaginary friend, strapped to the World's Largest Rubber Band ball is about to surpass the record for greatest ditanse travelled while strapped to the world's largest rubber band ball!
(Berry appears behind the reporter on TV screaming) Well that's really something!
Mac: I can't believe it!
Bloo: Yeah I know. A giant rubber band ball, why didn't we think of that?
(Mac hits himself in the forehead)
Berry: (to Mac) You don't give up, do you?
Mac: uh...Berry? Don't take this the wrong way, but I'm starting to get the feeling maybe you don't want me around...
Berry: Ohh don't be silly (she pulls out a knife from behind her) you're Bloo's best friend. I know Bloo's feeling for me could only ever be a fraction (she stabs something below her) of what they are for you. I mean some might say that you're really (she stabs the ground again repeatedly) cutting into my time with Bloo, just as I'm carving out a nice little niche for myself...But not for me. I'd never say that. (she pulls up a plate of what looks like Rice Krispie Squares) Crispy Rice Square?
Mac: Uh that's okay...I kinda gotta get going.
Berry: Really?! I mean...really? That's too bad...It was nice knowing you! So sorry I'll never see you again, don't worry your pretty little head about Bloo I'll take good care of him Bye!
Frankie: Oh just look at them! Have you ever seen a cuter couple?
Berry: IT'S NOT FAIR, IT'S NOT FAIR!! I'M THE SWEETEST GIRL IN THE WORLD!! AND TO THINK THAT I STAYED IN THIS STUPID HOUSE, WITH THESE STUPID PEOPLE...
Frankie: Oooh, a little sour under all that sweetness!
Eduardo: And a little loco!!
Berry: ...SO I CAN SHOWER YOU WITH MY SNICKERDOODLES, AND MY SCRAPBOOK, AND MY...MY WAY WITH NOTICING. WE WERE SUPPOSED TO DO THIS TOGETHER! THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR RECORD! THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR GIANT RUBBER BAND BALL OF LOVE!
Bloo: Whoa, whoa, who said anything about love, Heather?
Berry: MY NAME'S BERRY!
Bloo: Really? 'Cause you look like a Heather to me.
Berry: BERRY BERRY BERRY BERRY BERRY BERRY BERRY BERRY BERRY BERRY... (The giant rubber band ball begins to roll off the stage) Uh-oh. (Berry is rolled out of the house)
Bloo: He's the chocolate to my peanut butter!
(Friend appears from toilet)
Friend #1: The salt to your pepper!
(Another one comes)
Friend #2: The pop to your corn!
Bloo: The sizzle to my whizzle!
(Friends run away)
Frankie: This is just like what happened on The Loved and the Loveless.
Wilt: You mean when Slade was lost at sea?
Eduardo: And he came back with a new face and a weird accent?
Frankie: Actually, I was thinking more of the one with the two friends, the girl, and the giant rubber band ball.
Bloo: Right, like Strawberry.
Berry: More like Blooberry.
Bloo: This is Mac.
Berry: (Holding statue of Bloo made out of macaroni) And this is macaroni! 4,938 pieces to be exact!
Bloo: Yeah, yeah, just put that there with the other stuff. (Points to things Berry made for him, like chairs and pillows with pictures on)
Bloo: Yeah, you have a real eye.
Berry: (Gasp) I have an eye!
Bloo: Two of 'em.
Berry: (Ecstatic) Two of 'em!
Mac: Let's just forget that Berry ever came into our lives.
Bloo: No, seriously. Who are you talking about? (Mac slaps himself on the forehead)
Berry: (To Mac) But don't you worry your pretty little head. I'll take perfect care of Bloo.
Mac: Don't you worry your pretty little head. I come to visit Bloo every day. Right, Bloo?
Bloo: (On stilts) Yep. Every... single...day.
Terrence: Keep it down in here!! I'm trying to watch my story... uh.. I mean... I GOTTA GO HIT SOMETHING!!
Bloo: You sure can doodle a snicker.
Berry: (In a high, gaspy voice) I can doodle a snicker?!
Fast Forward: 1. In "The Bride To Beat", the whole scene based on The Graduate would be repeated. 2. Berry would return in "Affair Weather friends" disguised through much of the episode as a rich toymaker's son named Barry Bling.
When Mac is in his room, near the photo of him and Bloo there is a poster in the back that reads "Spacer Wars" which is an obvious spoof on Star Wars.
Kids' WB! airdate: July 30, 2005.
Animation Studio: Boulder Media, Ltd.
Look Hard: The book "Blockheads' Guide to CGI Animation" is an in-joke to let you know that Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is a series done with Macromedia Flash and Adobe After Effects among other computer programs.
Title Card Sound: Psycho-style music.
Imaginary Friend Debut: Berry.
Mac and Bloo break a world record for the world's largest rubber band ball, and Berry breaks a world record unintentionally for traveling on said world's largest rubber band ball. According to the Guiness World Records Site, the world's largest rubber band ball mark is held by John J. Bain, whose ball weighed 3,120 lbs. in 2003 when it was weighed in Wilmington, Delaware. Also, we see Blooregard try to put clothespins on his face in an attempt to set a record. Guiness reports that in Manchester, England, Gary Turner put 159 clothespins on his face on November 27, 2004.
Credits: Clips of Bloo calling Berry all the different names listed below.
Terrence makes his first appearance since the pilot episode.
Running Gags: 1. Bloo keeps forgetting Berry's name, and forgetting many other things. 2. Whenever romantic music plays, it just turns out to be an imaginary friend doing something. 3. Unlikely people (like Mr. Herriman and Terrence) have to see The Loved and the Loveless. 4. The TV show The Loved and The Loveless keeps on saying things according to what is going on. (Example: When Mac is walking away because Bloo ditched him, the show said "I have never felt so betrayed before" or something similar.) 5. When Berry sees Bloo and slow motion starts, Bloo does something stupid like smash his head in the ice cream. 6. Mac and Bloo constantly trying to set a world record and Berry constantly interfering. 7. Mac or Berry cutting something and saying, "Hmm... something doesn't fit."
Names Bloo Calls Berry: Gary, Jerry, Larry, Dairy, Cherry, Mary, Carrie, Terry, Heather.
Frankie, Wilt, & Eduardo: Mentions Slade from The Loved and the Loveless
In Teen Titans, another show on Cartoon Network, the main villain is Slade, a shady, strange voiced man with a mask. (Slade is mentioned getting lost at sea and returning with a weird accent and a new face.)
Mac: (Runs back home to make up with Bloo)
The scene where Mac is running back to the home to make up with Bloo, is a reference to the movie The Graduate when the Dustin Hoffman character is running to the church to stop the wedding of his girlfriend. this scene was repeated in "The Bride To Beat."
Bloo: Whoa, whoa, who said anything about love, Heather?
This is a play off the 1989 dark comedy Heathers starring Winona Ryder and Shannen Doherty as a pair of high school students named Heather.
Book Title: Blockheads Guide to...
A spoof of the popular books with the titles as The Complete Idiot's Guide to [subject] and [Subject] for Dummies. The "Blockheads" reference comes from the Peanuts comic strips, where Lucy occasionally tells Charlie Brown that he is a "blockhead."
n/a: The Loved and the Loveless
The Loved and the Loveless TV show is a hilarious parody of the TV soap opera, The Young and the Restless.
Bloo: Mac? He's the best, Jerry, the best.
This is referring to the popular show, Seinfeld. Kenny Banya, a rival comic, kept saying that Mendy's was "The best, Jerry, the best!" when Jerry owed him lunch.
Berry: Very Berry glad...
Berry's manner of speech is also reminiscent of an 80's cartoon, Strawberry Shortcake, which was revived in 2007 on CBS. Strawberry Shortcake and her friends would say, berry in place of the word very throughout the cartoon. So the phrase, is like saying very very glad. Instead they replaced the second very with berry.
Episode Title: Berry Scary
"Berry Scary" is probably a reference to the usual Strawberry Shortcake joke. Everything is "Berry" (i.e. Berry Fun.)
Bloo: Laugh it up, featherball!
In Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Han Solo says "Laugh it up, fuzzball" to Chewbacca. This may be a parody of that line.
