    Episode: 11 (3/3)

    Season: 1

    Original airdate: June 15, 2001

    Now on to the review. episode!!!!!! -facepalms- I can't believe I'm reviewing this episode. This episode is the worst (WORST!!!!) episode I have ever seen in the FHIF series.

    THE PLOT

    The beginning is boring. Bloo has stuck a toboggan up in a tree and Mac has to get it. When Mac gets it, he plunges. A tree branch saves him, but his backpack falls into the mud. The backpack gets ruined due to the intensity of the mud. What the hell, Cartoon Network? It doesn't work that way! Suddenly, a girl comes out of the mud. The girl turns out to be very annoying and insane. The girl is always imagining friends and drives Mac to the plane of insanity. The girl keeps on coming to fosters. Meanwhile, Frankie and Mr. Herriman are calling Goo Mac's boyfriend. Mac doesn't like this. Eventually, the house gets too crowded with imaginary friends and the others have to sleep on the bus. Goo makes Mac mad, and he rants about how annoying she is. Here is what the rant was:



    "Mac: I don't like you! Don't you get it? Nobody likes you. You're annoying and weird and you talk too much, and Bloo's name is not Chester, Mr. Herriman is not a badger, that's not how you play checkers, and protein doesn't come from bananas, it comes from nuts, which you don't need to eat more of because you ARE nuts! You're chock full of nuts! You're so nuts, you drive ME nuts! (Jumps in Goo's face) Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it?! Everybody thinks you're a nuisance and they all want you to just GO HOME!!!"



    Goo then runs away in tears. I think Goo deserved that. Mac realizes that she fixed his backpack. Mac then finds Goo crying in another room. Mac tells Goo that he is sorry for what he said earlier. Goo then gives Mac a hug. Goo is then invited to fosters and stops being the half-ass she formerly was.

    ARE. YOU. FUCKING. KIDDING. This episode sucked and I can't believe Goo was comforted. When I first saw this on a rerun on Boomerang back in 2011, I pointed to the screen and said 'FUCK YOU STUPID EPISODE!!!' and almost broke my TV. I was so enraged, I didn't watch fosters for several month. That's how bad this episode was. Well, I'm off to review Robot And Monster! Good night.moreless
  • Worst Character Ever

    Goo is so annoying. I don't know how do people stand her. She's the worst character in the show. This episode sucks.
  • If you don't want to read the whole review, here it is in a word: Goo rocks becuase she reminds me of a lot of people I know, and also me...moreless

    Bloo gets an 8-man tobaggan stuck up in a tree in the middle of June (or was it July? *ponders*), and Mac has to go up and get it while Bloo sits on a beach chair sipping from a juice box.

    When Mac has almost reached the tobaggan, the branch he's perched on snaps! Thankfully, he's caught on another, lower branch by his backpack. And, wouldn't you know it, the backpack's straps snap, and Mac falls.

    And so begins the story of the greatest cartton character on Cartoon Network (best ever's on Nickelodeon). Goo is a kid with an over active imagination, and she's a little bit on the weird side. She also talks a whole lot.

    That's why she's cool, though. Especially at the end, after her imagination gets put back in line.

    Goo reminds me a lot of myself and my friends, actually. We're completely random and goofy, and we also talk really fast and way too often! So, that's most likely one of the reasons why I'm so drawn to Goo.

    All in all, great episode, and Goo makes an excellent addition to the Foster's team.moreless

  • Awesome episode!

    This was a lovely episode.Goo is my favorite character because she is funny.Bloo was very funny too because he kept on chasing after Goo and Mac while laughing and at one part he fell on his face and got up and carried on chasing and laughing.This quote is an excellent way to show how funny she is.



    Goo: Shh, you'll scare it away.

    Coco: (Singing O Solo Mio while making cocoa) Coco co co co coco co co.

    Mac: That? That's just Coco.

    Goo: No, I mean the bird thing.

    Mac: That's Coco.

    Goo: No, I mean the bird.

    (Mac slaps his hand on his forehead, they walk up to Coco)

    Mac: This is Coco.

    Goo: Imaginary cocoa? (Tastes cocoa) That's such a dumb idea.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • (Mac climbing a tree)
      Mac: (To Bloo) Okay. Before I proceed any further, I have to ask you a few quesions. One, how did you get an eight-man toboggan stuck in a tree, and two, why do you need it right now in the middle of June?
      Bloo: One, it's a long story and I don't want to bore you with the details, and B, you just gotta trust me.

    • Mac: (Leading Goo to the front door while holding her hand and talking with teeth closed because he's angry and trying to maintain a happy tone) It was so great to see you today, and I really had a lot of fun with you. But I'm afraid it's time for you to go now.
      (Mac opens the front door and waits for Goo to leave through it, while still holding her hand. Silence ensues for about four seconds.)
      Goo: (Smiling) Oh my gosh. Are you holding my hand? Weirdo!
      (Mac realizes that he was holding Goo's hand, but before he can do anything, Mr. Herriman and Frankie see Goo and freak out. Frankie throws Goo out and closes the door immediately afterwards.)
      Mac: Thank goodness.
      Mr. Herriman: Master Mac! I thought I was very clear yesterday that that girl is not allowed in the house!
      Mac: Yeah, I know. She just can't get it through her thick head.
      Frankie: Then why did you deliberately invite your girlfriend back to Foster's?
      Mac: Well, you know she's crazy... GIRLFRIEND?!?!?

    • Mr. Herriman: (Lecturing Mac and Bloo about Goo) And whenever she comes to Foster's she comes completely overstimulated and thinks and creates and imagines... willy nilly!
      (Imaginary friend Willy Nilly rolls into the room)
      Willy Nilly: No, see, my creator's name was Kevin...
      Mr. Herriman: No one asked you, Master Willy!

    • Mac: But Goo, imaginary friends are real friends. They play with you and they don't care if you're weird. They like you for who you are. Maybe if you stopped imagining so many and got to know the ones you have, then maybe you wouldn't feel so lonely. Just look at me and Bloo. He's my best friend ever, and Wilt and Eduardo and Coco, they're the greatest friends in the world and they're all imaginary. Goo, I'm really sorry for what I said about you. You're not weird, you're really creative and funny and nice, and if you're not to mad at me, I really wanna be your friend too.
      (When Mac looks at Goo, camera zooms out fast to show her, now really happy.)
      Goo: Okay! (Hugs and squeezes Mac)
      Mac: Okay...that's great...you're...crushing me.

    • Mac: Goo are you ok?
      Goo: You know why I make so many imaginary friends?
      (Imagines violin and it starts playing) It's because I don't have any real friends. You were right, Mac. Nobody likes me because I'm a big fat weirdo and so I have to make up my own friends so I won't feel so you know all by my self.
      Teardrop Friends: (Cuddling up to Goo) Oooooooohhh. Poooor Goo!

    • Mac: (Yelling at Goo) I don't like you! Don't you get it? Nobody likes you. You're annoying and weird and you talk to much, and Bloo's name is not Chester, Mr. Herriman is not a badger, thats not how you play checkers, and protein doesn't come from bananas, it comes from nuts, which you don't need to eat more of because you are nuts! You're chock full of nuts! You're so nuts you drive me nuts! (Jumps in Goo's face) Get it? Get it?Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? G-G-G-Get it?! Everybody thinks you're a nuisance and they all want you to go HOME!

    • Mac: Yes! (Music starts playing)
      Bloo: (Giggling) Hey, where's Goo?
      Mac: Goo's gone, Bloo.
      Bloo: Chester. (Music stops playing)

    • Goo: Shh, you'll scare it away.
      Coco: (Singing O Solo Mio while making cocoa) Coco co co co coco co co.
      Mac: That? That's just Coco.
      Goo: No, I mean the bird thing.
      Mac: Yes. That's Coco.
      Goo: No, I mean the bird.
      (Mac slaps his hand on his forehead, they walk up to Coco)
      Mac: This, this imaginary friend right here. This is Coco.
      Goo: Imaginary cocoa? (Tastes cocoa) That's such a dumb idea.

    • (After Goo's new imaginary creations are sent to Mr. Herriman's office to fill out the paperwork)
      Bloo: That was awesome!
      Mac: That was weird.

  • NOTES (18)

    • The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation - Character Design.

    • According to BLOGregard Q. Kazoo, the official production blog, the original title of this episode was One Goo Over The Cuckoo's Nest, which is a pun off the 1975 Academy Award winning Best Picture One Flew Over The Cuckoo Nest.

    • The episode was nominated for an Emmy as Best Animated Program Under One Hour.

    • Fast Forward: 1. Goo has become a quasi-regular now, appearing in "The Big Picture" to help try to figure out what happened in an old picture of the home's residents, in "Neighbor Pains" streamlining "Adopt-A-Thought Saturday", "Infernal Slumber", "I Only Have Surprise For You", "The Big Cheese" and in "Make Believe-It-Or-Not" as she accidentally imagined video game villains. 2. That rainbow-colored wig both Mac and Goo wear later would be worn by Mac during a pivotal chase scene in "The Buck Swaps Here."

    • Goo imagine a total of 751 friends. We know this because at the end of the show, she said that she already make 264 adoptions and there are still 487 imaginary friends left.

    • Despite appearing, Madame Foster has no dialogue.

    • Credits: Two of many small people imagined by Goo waiting for Coco to arrive thinking of her as their airplane transport.

    • Running Gags: 1) Goo calling Bloo "Chester." 2) Mac trying to talk to Goo, but she gets totally distracted. 3) Bloo running and laughing wildly and crazily after Mac and Goo. 4) Goo creating an imaginary friend or more to compare with the originals, such as Bloo, Wilt, Coco, and Eduardo. 5) Mr. Herriman and Frankie getting ticked off at Mac for not following the rule about keeping Goo away from Foster's.

    • The reason that Goo imagines so many imaginary friends is because she has trouble making real friends and she's lonely. At the end of the episode, she stops imagining them and gets to know the ones she has.

    • Human Debuts: Goo, The Goodmans.
      Imaginary Friend Debut: Willy, all the friends that Goo made

    • For the first time since "Phone Home", we see the "Friends of the Month" wall. This time it has pictures full of Goo.

    • Coco sings O Solo Mio while making cocoa in this episode.

    • At some point, Mr. Herriman and Frankie thought that Goo and Mac were in love.

    • At one point in the episode, Goo imagined many orange versions of Bloo.

    • Animation Studio: Cartoon Network Studios.

    • Goo's full name is Goo Goo Gaga.

    • Title Card Sound: Popping sounds.

    • UK airdate: N/A at the moment.

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Goo's behavior and personality is somewhat similar to Dee Dee , from Dexter's Laboratory. Similar moments where each goes "Ooooh." when something interests them or they both run or walk in their own way.

    • Goo: Hairclip
      Goo's hairclips, one of them looks like Blossom's from Craig's other show, The Powerpuff Girls.

    • Goo: Akimba kee rucksack.
      A "rucksack" is the German pronunciation of "backpack", "ruck" from the German rücken (back) and sack (bag).

    • Episode Title: Go Goo Go
      The episode title is similar to Goo Gone, an adhesive removal product, as well as the rock group Sonic Youth's album Goo, which contains the song "My Friend Goo."
