    I don't find Goofball all THAT bad, in the end, didn't he act appreciative of Frankie by calling her "all right"? (Which for him was meaningful.) And to top it off, gave her a clown nose? (Also his meaningful way of saying he likes someone.)

    Hey I used to HATE Bloo because of the way he could be so mean and selfish sometimes, until I began to understand him better. After that, I not only began to like Bloo better, but now I just plain out love him.

    Since we've only seen Goofball in one ep. and we don't really know all there is to know about him, maybe he should be given a little benefit of the doubt.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Frankie too and I think she deserves a real handsome guy who treats her like a queen, and has all the IFs think she's the greatest thing since sliced bread, but we all know that real life doesn't always give appreciation to those who work hard.

    Maybe in the end, he was just naive and didn't know better. And that it was in a sense, saying sorry to Frankie for giving her such a rough time. But also he was just really like a three year old who may not had know no better.

    I bet he had a teenage-like attitude and with the help of Bloo, he looked like a jerk.

    I agree he is both naive and a jerk and he should have been show out of a cannon to his creator.

    There actually has already been another Goofball topic, only with a great fewer responses (maybe due to title?). See it at http://www.tv.com/fosters-home-for-imaginary-friends/show/28101/im-curious.../topic/12983-610663/msgs.html?tag=board_topics;title;12  sorry I couldn't sheer it down to a shortcut XD

    But somehow I wonder if Bloo was telling Goofball to go get Frankie like Bloo does annoy her a lot. Wonder if Bloo was behind it?

    On another forum which I won't mention, he is getting more hits than the other "guest starring" friends on there than like let's say Bendy.

    No, not naive. He was a freakin' selfish jerk!! All he did was freeload, make Frankie's chores more difficult on PURPOSE, made her re-buy groceries when it wasn't necessary AND made her miss the concert! I wish he wasn't an imaginary friend, IMO! And by the way, he didn't deserve an apology for all the hell heput Frankie through! It should have been the other way around!!
