Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Loved it!

    Eduardo was awesome in that episode, and it's about time Bloo apologized to Coco. I love how he cares about his friends other than himself.
  • A bad way to end a season.

    "Cuckoo For Coco Cards" is perhaps the worst season finale I had ever seen. Not only did this non-canonical episode almost cross the line to "jumping the shark", but the way it was displayed and how the character acts was simply not right at all.

    The episode starts when Mac takes a group of kids a tour of the house, were Bloo tries to impress them,. However, Coco is the one who does the job well, so much, she had a group of fans, causing Bloo to get jealous. This jealousy lenghtens when Coco begins to create cards of everyone, and at first, Bloo didn't want nothing with them. But soon, Bloo becomes obsess wothj collecting every single one of them, whihc threatens his friendship with Coco.

    Overall, a bad finale, another non-canonical episode and my final score: 1 out of 10.moreless
  • Bloo becomes obbessed with coolecting tradable cards that feature all of the imaginary friends.

    I was luaghing so hard when Bloo whined everyone into trading cards with him. The guy can do a lot of stuff and whining for a large amount of time is one of them. I was very proud of Ed in this one. he was proving to everyone that he wasn't just a big scardey cat, that he could be brave just like everybody else. Like eating Broccloi and sleeping without a nightlight, I luaghed out loud when ed screamed as the nightlight was turned off, poor guy but at least he is getting over his fears. And bloo found out for himself what we the viewers knew all along, that he is a jerk.moreless
  • Hilarious and exciting

    At the beginning children from Mac\'s school come to Foster\'s. They have coco give them a tour. Bloo gets jealous. Coco lays an egg full of foster\'s trading cards so, to show he is the best Bloo throws eggs at the kid making Coco mad so she makes Bloo the most common card. Bloo then starts to collect the cards without Coco\'s help He collects all the cards then Coco tells him he is still missing 1 card and it turns out to be himself. Eduardo also trys to be less afraid. It is extremely funny and my favorite episode.moreless
  • Very funny and clever

    I loved how Bloo uses his wining and trading skills to more and better cards in this episode. Soon, he has all cards except for one: his own! Even though this was the least rarest card, he was still missing it because he ripped it in front of Wilt. I thought that the idea of getting cards in this episode was clever. It was also really funny at the begining when Bloo thought he was the absolute best. So overall, I really did like this episode for humor and good writing and I hope to see it again on TV soon!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Bloo says "Then I'm done!" there seem to be 200, but if you count how many there are when Bloo is trying to find out who he's missing, there are less than a hundred.

    • When Eduardo was a "big fat baby," he was afraid of spiders, the dark, heights, butterflies, splashy water, cards, exploding cards, potato famine, cars, shoes, napkins, index cards, spoons, three-ring binders, transmissions, rubber bands, rubber chickens, band-aids, pushing, anecdotes, dots, and periods.

    • Life Imitates Art: Real "Coco" Cards and "Bobble Bodies"
      Visitors to the annual Comic Con International in San Diego, California who visited the Cartoon Network booth get a set of real "Coco Cards" in 2006. The cards were of Blooregard, Mac, Wilt, Eduardo, Coco, Frankie, Mr. Herriman, Cheese, Sunset Junction and Jackie Khones. In 2008, Funko created a line of Foster's bobble heads (or in the case of both Blooregard and Eduardo, bobble bodies) that also include Mac and Cheese, no pun intended.

    • Madame Foster appeared in the episode, but without any dialogue.

    • Title Card: The sound of Coco laying eggs.

      If you heard this particular sound effect before, then you may remember it was used in "Go Goo Go" for that episode's title card.

    • Credits: Gumbo still going upward with his bubble through the air.

    • Coco seems to be apt in taking care of children, by the way she kept them happy the entire time they were there.

    • Human Debuts: Some of Mac's classmates.
      Imaginary Friend Debuts: Gumbo, Bingo.

    • Running Jokes: 1) Eduardo's status on the back of his card is updated. 2) The Bloo card is the most common card. 3) Someone shaking their head at Bloo when he tried to be funny in the first scene.

    • We learn the names of some previous seen characters without names in this episode. Among them are Keystone Block, Clambake, Sunset Junction and Fluffer Nutter.

    • Animation Studio: Cartoon Network Studios.

    • We learn that Jackie's last name is Khones.


    • Parody: Bobble Bodies
      The "Bobble Bodies" that Coco creates after ending her Coco Cards project are a spoof of the popular bobble heads that are given away at sports events and also sold in sports memorabilia stores.

    • In the game "Earthbound" for the SNES, there' s a part where, to get through a cave, you have to give bubblegum to a monkey who precedes to blow a bubble to float up to the next level so he can flip a switch, thus allowing you to get out of the cave.

    • Bloo: Ringoringo, Ringorango.

      When Bloo is frantically searching through his deck of cards to see if he has all of them, he calls off imaginary friends' names and at one point says "Ringoringo, Ringorango." These two imaginary friends' names our a reference to the former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.

    • Imaginary Friend: Jackie Khones
      The name, Jackie Khones, is a spoonerism of Cartoon Network Executive, Khaki Jones.

    • Imaginary Friend Names: Fluffer Nutter, Billy Blob Norton

    • Fluffer Nutter: "I'll trade you a George Mucus."
      This is a reference to George Lucas. creator of the Star Wars franchise.
