In fact, it just so happens that it's Uncle Pockets, the very first imaginary friend to come to Foster's. Uncle Pockets' charm drives all the other friend's attentions to him, making Bloo jealous. Bloo then decides to try and expose Uncle Pockets as a fraud through the home's newspaper. Then later, when he thinks he hears that Uncle Pockets is trying to kill Mr. Herriman, Frankie, and Madame Foster, he stops at nothing to stop him before it's too late!moreless

    i just dont like this episode that uncle pockets guy is just so annoying and he keeps on ryming at some points which is annoying hes a very annoying charcter to the series this is one of the worst episode to the season but not the series i realy hope this charcter dosent appear again in the series though i do like the parts when bloo tells the people in fosters lies about how uncle pockets did bad things (stealed the deed to the house and other stuff) but other then that the parts were not good when i first saw that charcter "uncle pockets" i knew that he would not be a good charcter to the series and i guess i was right so i give this episode a 4.3/10moreless
  • The story line manages to tie in a variety of valuable life lessons we can easily relate to, at the same time, amuses us with Bloo's wild and exaggerated imagination! Colorful character's, like Uncle Pockets grab your attention make it enjoyable to watchmoreless

    This episode has a great story line. It uses the classic tale of, "The boy who cried wolf," as an example to teach Bloo some valuable lessons. Never lie to anyone just for the fun, or thrill of seeing their reaction, or when it can result in hurting someone else in the process. It also reminds us never judge a book by its cover (ie just because a person may appear different than everyone else, doesn't mean they are bad people. It just means, that's how they choose to express themselves. In the end, they could even be one of the nicest people you've ever met.moreless
  • Some of this episode's parts were well planned.

    Well this is an enjoyable episode with a brand new character that seems to be the best imaginary friend ever. That fact provides the basis of this story, and it takes some unusual twists and turns. That is why this episode is cleverly plotted.

    Bloo's newspaper in this episode has him and Mac filling the roles of reporters; that occupation is all about investigating, so it is fitting that they are trying to uncover a mystery in this episode. It might not have you guessing until the end, but it will provide you with a comical ride up to there.moreless
  • Another good show

    Very well-plotted show again

    Good show as Bloo tries to expose

    An old friend of Foster's to be a fraud

    And fears as though that this old friend

    Will try to kill some people at Fosters

    Harriman, Madame Foster, and even Dutchess

    Now he must save them

    Before it's too late

    Or is this friend trying to kill them?

    Very funny show and cleverly well-plotted

    As Bloo tries to play detective

    Did you all notice that Bloo is amberdextrious?
  • I know your checkered past!

    I love this episode but I hate Uncle Pockets. This episode starts with Bloo making his newspaper when a old friend(Uncle Pockets) comes back to Foster's. Everyone likes him except Bloo who wants to prove that Uncle Pockets is evil. I especially love Bloo's interpretations on the story which only made this episode better. And I like the lies Bloo puts in his newspaper about Uncle Pockets. Anyway this ep is one of my favorites even if I hate Uncle Pockets.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • When Uncle Pockets first tucks Bloo into bed, we see Wilt's feet sticking out from underneath and he's snoring. But when Bloo starts bouncing the bed off the ground to wake Eduardo in the top bunk, Wilt is not visible under the bed at all.

    • When Uncle Pockets traps Bloo in his bed the first time, we see that the bed is too tall to fit through the doorway. But the next time Bloo gets trapped he manages to bounce the bed the whole way out the door and down the stairs.

    • About halfway into the episode, Uncle Pockets tucks Bloo into bed so that he cannot escape. Bloo then shifts the bed all the way down stairs, with Eduardo sleeping on top, and he stays there in bed. Later, when Uncle Pockets' secret is revealed, all the friends are outside, including Eduardo. But in the scene when the friends head back inside, Eduardo is clearly seen back in the bed.

    • When Bloo is reading the book "The Boy who Cried Wolf", if you look carefully you can see he turns the pages from front to back. He's reading the book backwards!

    • A man who used to own Uncle Pockets said that he gave him the caboose of his train, but Uncle Pockets really received all of it. And another former owner said he gave him one of his baby teeth, but he really gave him three.

    • The two-faced imaginary friend is eating pizza, but as it eats the slices, none of the pizza ends up in their mouths.

    • Bloo: For instance, I've seen headlines that read "Big Foot marries alien."
      Mac: That's ridiculous!
      Bloo: Duh!! We all know Big Foot is a loner and would never get married.

    • Mac: Bloo, have you ever read the story, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf?"
      Bloo: You know I don't read.
      Mac: Maybe, you should start.
      Bloo: (Reads) Okay, there was a boy... who lies... lies some more... again, with the lying... finally, tells the truth... nobody believes him... he gets eaten by a wolf. (Tosses book away) Well, that was a colossal waste of time. What does that have to do with anything? (Telephone rings; Bloo answers the phone) Newsroom!
      Mac: Bloo!
      Bloo: Mac? Glad you called. That is the last time I take a book recommendation from you!

    • Bloo: (Scoffs) Anyone can do that! (Does a jig and sings) La-la-la, look at me, dancing around. My name's Bloo... I'm the best... around...
      Mac: You just rhymed around with around.
      Bloo: (Muttering) You just rhymed around with around.

  • NOTES (6)

  • ALLUSIONS (12)

    • Inspector Gadget: Flying Hat
      The flying hat that Bloo uses when he is snooping outside the window in his fantasy is similar to the hat that Inspector Gadget uses.

    • Uncle Pockets: Inspiration.
      There is a Danny Kaye song named 'Uncle Pockets', about a man with magic bottomless pockets.

    • Uncle Pockets: Appearance

      Uncle Pockets resembles John R Neill's illustrations for a character in L. Frank Baum's Oz books named Professor HM Wogglebug TE.

    • Invisibility Cloak: Shroud of Shadows

      Bloo's invisibility cloak mentioned in his story could also be a reference to the Shroud of Shadows, an object from Xiaolin Showdown that makes its user invisible.

      It could also be a reference to Harry Potter's invisibility cloak in the movie series, "Harry Potter".

    • Uncle Pockets: Appearance
      Uncle Pockets' outfit with the top hat reminds him of the Gene Wilder character from the '70's movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

    • Bloo & Uncle Pockets: He-Man & Skeletor
      In the credits, with Bloo on the tiger holding the glowing sword, looked very similar to He-Man and Battle Cat, and Uncle Pockets with the shovel looked some what similar to Skeletor (all from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe).

    • Bloo: Invisibility Cloak
      In Bloo's story, just before he sees Uncle Pockets and Frankie, he was invisible by a cloak, like the one Harry Potter from the Harry Potter books and movies trilogy has.

    • Uncle Pocket's Owners: Velma
      One of Uncle Pocket's owners looks a lot like Velma from Scooby-Doo.

    • Bloo: Hat
      In Bloo's version of the story, his hat acts like a helicopter, just like the one Inspector Gadget from Inspector Gadget has.

    • Baseball Autograph: Bay Bruth
      This is a play on the noted baseball player, George Herman "Babe" Ruth.

    • Episode Title: Bloo Done It
      A pun on the mystery blurb "Whodunit."

    • Bloo: It was a dark and stormy night...
      A line that was made famous by Snoopy of the Peanuts fame as he struggled with writing novels. This in turn was lifted from the novel Paul Clifford by Edward Bulwer-Lytton of which this has become a signature of bad literature, as symbolized by an annual contest sponsored by the San Jose State University English Department.
