The Bloo Superdude & the Great Creator of Everything's Awesome Ceremony of Fun That He's Not Invited To
Frances "Frankie" Foster/Duchess
Blooregard "Bloo" Q. Kazoo
As Ed is walking with Mac, Mac says he's eight, and Ed says "Ocho, ocho, ocho.", which is Spanish for "eight". But on the Closed Captioning, it says "Trouble, trouble, trouble."
In one scene, Wilt goes from neck deep in the quicksand to being chest deep.
When Wilt waved his eye in the quicksand and Mac said, "Thanks, Wilt, that means a lot," Wilt used the wrong eye (he used the blind eye that makes the baby rattle sound).
Bloo: (Poking his face) Ow, ow, ow, ow...
Mac: Bloo, cut that out!
Bloo: But my face hurts from the bee stings!
Mac: I don't care!
Bloo: But Mac, it hurrrrrrrrrrrrts!
Mac: You need aloe.
Mac: Aloe? It's a type of plant with medicine inside? The leaves look kind of like a cactus except they're darker green...
Bloo: Found it! )Picking leaves and rubbing them all over his face) Aaahhhh....
Mac: That's poison ivy.
Bloo: Itchy... Itchy... Itchy... Itchy, itchy, itchy, itchyitchyitchyitchy...! AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!
Mac: (Sighs) I need a break. Where's the trail mix?
Bloo: I ate it.
Mac: What!? Why?
Bloo: Because we were walkng on the trail. Where's the campsite mix?
(Everyone is departing from the house to go camping as three imaginary friends in the forms of a tent, lantern, and picnic basket appear) Wait for us!
Mr. Herriman: Sorry Tenty, Lanterny, Picnicy. Frankie needs your help around the house.
Tenty, Lanterny, Picnicy: But...
Mr. Herriman: We all need to be where we are most useful. (Hops away leaving the three staring blankly in disbelief)
Mr. Herriman: No.
Mac and Bloo: On their knees) PLEEASSEE!!!
Mr. Herriman: No.
Mac and Bloo: PLEEASSEE!!!
Mr. Herriman: Absolutely, positively No.
(Bloo comes on with a "beard")
Mac: Tell me you didn't eat all the fish...
Bloo: Nope, I didn't even catch them. I was too busy working on my beard.
Eduardo: Ooooooohhhhhhh!!! (Touches beard) Eh, it is muy sticky!
Bloo: That's honey you've got there. I use it to keep the pine needles in place.
Mac: HONEY!! Where did you find honey?? Why didn't you bring some back to eat??
Bloo: Because, I needed it for my beard! Duh!
Mac: Wait...If you covered in honey, then it could attract...(Buzzing sound) BEES!!!!!!!! (Bees start attacking everyone. Then after bees are gone) It could have been worse. The honey could have attracted a... (Growling sound) BEAR!!!
Bloo: (While shaking can) Coco, where's the can opener?
Bloo: WHAT! No Can opener! Are you CRAZY!!!!!
Mr.Herriman: Master Blooregard, that is no way to treat a lady! (Turns to Coco) Ms.Coco, would yo please lay us an opener of the can category?
Mr.Herriman: What do you mean you don't take requests? Are you CRAZY!!!!!!
Bloo: (Drinks from water thermos) Bleeh! (Drinks from water container) Bleeeh!
Mac: Bloo, what are you doing?
Bloo: I have to get this berry taste out of my mouth! Now, where's the juice?
Mac: We don't have any juice! That was what we only had to drink for the whole weekend!
Eduardo: Now we have nothing left to drink? (Eduardo starts crying while Bloo catches his tear drops in his mouth)
Bloo: Mmm! Tear droppy!
Bloo: (About camping) This is great. Mac. It's like we're real mountain men - no brushing our teeth, no taking baths, no shaving!
Mac: We don't shave normally.
Bloo: I know, but this time we won't shave and grow beards!
Bloo: Shhh! Mac, you're going to scare my beard away!
Mac: Okay, things aren't as bad as they seem. Madame Foster and Wilt can totally take that bear, and I bet Mr. Herriman has found lots of food by now, and Coco, she's probably gone for help.
Bloo: (In a casual manner) Coco? Oh, she got eaten by a fish.
Mac: Okay. Things are as bad as they seem...
Mac: (After making fire) It worked! It worked!!
(Thunder and rain sets in)
Bloo: (Performing the rain dance) It worked! My rain dance worked!
Frankie: So, how was camping?
Mac: Never... again!
Eduardo: The monster! It is getting closer!!
Mac: Guys, whatever happens to us, I just want you to know that you guys are the best friends a kid can ever ask for.
Mac: (Wilt nods his right eye to Mac) Thanks, Wilt. That means a lot. And Bloo?
Bloo: Yeah, Mac?
Mac: If we don't make it out of this alive, I just want you to know... THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!
Bloo: Well, I came across a hiker and he gave me a bologna sandwich.
Mac: (Hurt) But, bologna is my favorite!
Bloo: (Taking a sandwich from what seems to be nowhere) You don't like turkey, do you? (Proceeds to eat sandwich)
Frankie: I can't believe Herriman left for two days. (Happily surprised) Herriman left for two days?! WHOO-HOO!!
Mr.Herriman can speak Rabbit and Madame Foster can talk with animals.
We find out in this episode that Coco can swim on the surface of a body of water much like a duck can.
UK airdate: November 3, 2005.
We learn that Foster's Home is nearby a forest, since, toward the end of the episode, we see Foster's in the background.
Both Mr. Herriman and Madame Foster are naked in this episode. However, Madame Foster's hair censored most of her.
Running Gags: 1) Bloo eating all the food the gang packs for the camping trip, as well as eating the ones in the wild, such as berries. 2) Bloo performing the rain dance. 3) Bloo manipulating the friends to do his work, such as Wilt carrying his backpack or Coco take over fishing. 4) Bloo drinking the tears from Eduardo's crying. 5) Mr Herriman not accepting the slightest mistake in the tent set-up. 6) Mr. Herriman calling the normal bunnies "savages".
Imaginary Friends Debuts: Tenty, Lanterny, Picnicy.
Mac's favorite sandwich is revealed to be bologna.
Credits: Mr. Herriman befriended by the rabbits in a sequence set to folk music.
Animation Studio: Cartoon Network Studios.
With this episode, Mac vows never to go on another camping trip, mainly because of Bloo's annoying and stupid antics.
Apparently, animals can see imaginary friends as well, just as Herriman saw a couple of rabbits.
Once again, Wilt's height proves to be his advantage standing in the quicksand.
Title Card Sound: Birds chirping.
Episode Title: Camp Keep a Good Mac Down
The title is a pun on the phrase "You can't keep a good man down."
