    Bloo is fed up with Mr.Herriman's rules and he accidentally broke madame Fosters sculpture.Wilt,Coco,Ed and Bloo try to fix it before any one finds out especially Mr.Herrimen.They first try to fix it with toilet paper and tooth paste but it didnt work.Then they tryed soap and it was perfect but was melted becouse of water.Mac came and he suggested glue.That worked really perfectly put Bloo accidentely broke the sculpture again and Mr.Herrimen caught him.He didnt get in trouble,he only needed to replece it with a new sclpute becouse things like tjat always happen.Unfotunetly Frankie was trapped in the closet and broke all the sculptures.moreless

    this episode was pretty good but the creators could've done alittle better with the ending though this episode was pretty good i liked some stuff like the beggining it was pretty funny and cool, but some parts were confusing they kept saying the words "bust" or "busted" i dident like that part but i think the fans of this show will like this episode this episode cause of the funny and exciting parts of this episode but the ppl who dont like the show that much will not like this epsiode this episode was like an averade so i give this episode a 8.5/10moreless
  • "This is no good. A bust this big needs ample support." - Bloo Bloo is scolded by Mr. Herriman again and again on breaking rules. This frustration leads to the destruction one of Herriman's prized possessions and chaos ensues.moreless

    Another fine example of a episode of Foster's Home that while it is geared towards children, adults laugh at the subtle comments such as the quote above. It turns out that everything that Bloo is doing is against the rules of Mr. Herriman. He hovers over Bloo and corrects his mistakes ever step of the way. Finally, Bloo reaches a breaking point at which he doesn't want to move so he can't break any rules. However, he flies into a huff when Mac shows up, bumps into a pedestal with Madame Foster's statue/bust on top, and it falls to the ground to shatter to pieces. The group then scrambles through several ideas to little success just to find out that Herriman has a closet full of busts in his office.



    Right from the start, this episode made me laugh. Though geared towards juvenile humor with having to pee, Bloo's voice and expressions make the events more comically appealing. The mad escapades are also giggle-worthy, but I personally got more humor out of the continued angering of Frankie. He willingness to yell at Herriman is hilarious.



    This was a great episode and a good show primer after the pilot/movie. Laughs all around.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Animation Glitch: After Bloo is told to go to Mr. Herriman's office, Wilt, Coco, Eduardo, and Mac move a little bit on the floor without walking.

    • Madame Foster is small, but the bust is still only supposed to be a sculpture of the head and upper torso. The bust is her whole body.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Mac: Bloo, don't you think something's wrong?
      Bloo: What? The plan is flawless. All she has to do is sit perfectly still covered in flour for the rest of her life. Okay, maybe there is a slight flaw in the plan.

    • (After Blooregard gets one of the busts that Mr. Herriman has stored away, Frankie comes to her senses and wakes up from Eduardo's head butt, promptly breaking all the other busts)
      Bloo: (Pointing to Frankie) She did it! (Quickly exits the office)
      Mr. Herriman: (Handing Frankie a broom) Well, Miss Frances, rules are rules. Clean it up.
      Frankie: (Takes the broom) Rules, schmules! (Screams) I'm gonna clean YOU up, you crazy rabbit! (Starts to chase Mr. Herriman around the office) Come back here and I'll clean your clock!!!
      Mr. Herriman: Gahhh! Please, Miss Frances, you know the rules, no running around the house! (Breaking sound is heard) Ahhh!

    • Bloo: Guys, touch nothing. Don't even breathe. Don't even move. Just stand still.
      Mac: Will you relax?
      Bloo: (With muffled voice) I am relaxed!

    • (After seeing the kitchen in a mess, he calls Frankie who is still on TP duty)
      Mr. Herriman: (On intercom) MS. FRANCES! DISASTER IN THE KITCHEN! PLEASE COME IMMEDIATELY!
      Frankie: (From the outhouse) YOU WANT THIS TOILET PAPER OR NOT?!?!?

    • All (except Bloo): Ooooooh, you're SOOO busted!
      Bloo: Wha'd I do?
      Eduardo: Es Madam Foster!
      Bloo: Wha?
      Mac: You busted her bust!
      Bloo: Huh?
      Wilt: Herriman's prized possession!
      Bloo: What?
      Coco: Coco coco coco coco!
      Wilt: She's right, Herriman's totally gonna kill you!

    • Frankie: Guys, this isn't cool. Sorry, but I've got to say something.
      All: NO!
      Mac: No, Frankie, don't tell on Bloo.
      Frankie: I'm not telling on Bloo.
      Others: Phew.
      Frankie: I'm telling off Herriman!
      Others: What?
      Frankie: Oh, yeah, it's high time that rabbit learned that all those rules are freaking you out and driving me nuts. I'm gonna let him know straight up (To Bloo) that you busted the bust and you shouldn't be busted for it. I mean accidents happen, right?
      Mr. Herriman: (On intercom) Miss Frances, I have had it with your irresponsible dilly-dallying today. Meet me in my office in thirty seconds for a serious discussion about your employment here!
      Frankie: (Rolls up her sleeves) I've been waiting for this for a long time!
      Eduardo: Ah! No tell Herriman! (Grabs Frankie) I sorry! I sorry! I sorry! (Headbutts Frankie and throws her in a closet; Coco shuts the door with her foot)
      Wilt: Now, on a list of things that are not okay, that was really not okay.
      Eduardo: Eduardo es un bad boy! (Starts crying)
      Bloo: Si, let's go.

    • (While everyone is making the sculptures of soap)
      Bloo: It stinks. (Takes Mac's soap)
      Mac: Hey!
      Bloo: Uh-uh. (Takes Wilt's soap)
      Wilt: This is definitely not okay. (Bloo climbs to Eduardo's bunk)
      Bloo: Um... yeah. Eduardo, don't cry. But no...
      (Takes Eduardo's soap and gets off, tear drops fall on the floor)

    • Mr. Herriman: Ah, Madame Foster, your granddaughter is working my last nerve. I can't believe you and that slacker are related.
      Madame Foster: (Sticks out tounge, blowing a raspberry)
      Mr. Herriman: (Turns around)
      Bloo: Eh... excuse me.
      Mr. Herriman: Master Blooregard, if you hadn't said that "excuse me," you would have been right out of here.

    • Mr. Herriman: Master Blooregard! We only use two squares during each release.
      Bloo: What is wrong with you?! Ugh.
      (hear three rips)
      Mr. Herriman: Ahh ahh ahh.
      Bloo: Darn those bunny ears!

    • Mr. Herriman: Miss Frances! Two squares!
      Frankie: I'm not even doing that!

    • Mr. Herriman: Get up and get dressed!
      (Slight pause)
      Bloo: (Looks down) Done!

    • Mr. Herriman: Master Blooregard, there is a rule about standing... oh wait... no there isn't. Carry on!

    • Mr. Herriman: Pea sized please!
      Bloo: Please don't say "pea."

  • NOTES (10)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The repeating gag with Frankie putting the toilet paper over not under is reference to a debate whether its proper to have the open end over or under.
