    Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends: Season 2, Episode 4, Good Wilt Hunting

    When the imaginary friends at Foster's are having a five-year reunion with their creators, Bloo and Mac see that Wilt is not with his creator. They ask him where his creator is and ask about what kind of person he is, and Wilt runs away as they pester him with more questions. Soon, Wilt decides to run away from the Foster's home and set things right with a mysterious enemy.

    The result is a chase in which Bloo, Mac, Eduardo, Coco, Frankie, Police officer Nina Valerosa (who created Eduardo), Douglas and Adam (Coco's nerdy caretakers who are madly in love with Frankie) try to bring Wilt home. At every stop, they miss him and he does some good deed and misses whatever transportation he was going to take cross-country to his Wilt makes it to his creator's hometown, an imaginary friend with a basketball for a head, who is Wilt's enemy, beats him at a game of basketball for a second time as we learn that Wilt's creator was a basketball player that had become very skilled at the game after training with Wilt. It is revealed through memories and stories that one day a kid from down the block created a new friend, Foul Larry, who beat the two in a basketball game when, instead of blocking Larry, Wilt saved his creator from being crushed by him. This resulted in not only the loss of the game, but also caused his own arm to get crushed and his eye damaged permanently by the bouncing ball. Jordan Michaels, who is revealed to be Wilt's creator, was not angry at Wilt, especially after he was told that Wilt had saved his life. After being reunited with Wilt, Jordan offers to give Wilt fame and live with him in his mansion, but Wilt decides to keep on helping people and wishes to someday become adopted by another kid who would need an imaginary friend like him. However, he is still able to visit his creator when he wants.

    The movie ends with Wilt and Jordan playing a lopsided game of one-on-one basketball at Foster's, with Wilt winning predominantly by shooting the ball through the hoop, having it bounce back into his hands, and shooting it again.

    A running gag in the movie is that Frankie keeps getting tickets from Nina Valerosa, because of various, and often irrelevant, reasons.

    This episode was great in my opinion.moreless
  • Wilt goes on a journey to find his creator and helps people along the way. The Fosters gang are worried about Wilt missing so they go out to find him.

    It's time for the Five Year Creator Reunion Picnic, where imaginary friends' creators come to Foster's to see their imaginary friends. However, once again, Wilt's creator doesn't show up. So he sets off on a cross-country journey to find his creator. But soon Mac and the gang find out that Wilt had gone missing and set out on a road trip to find him. But Bloo's ridiculous theories of to Wilt's disappearance leads to many twists and turns in the journey to find Wilt. Will Wilt ever find out why his creator doesn't show up? Will Mac and the gang find Wilt? Will the lot make it out in one piece?. I haven't seen this 1-hour episode in a long time... it's been like maybe 2 or 3 years since I've seen this episode. Anyways, I saw this episode for the first time in a long time earlier this morning and decided to review it. I woke up and the first thing I saw was this episode and plus I haven't seen the series itself in a while so yeah, it was awesome to see this episode again. I still loved it the same way I loved it in the past. I really loved how we learned about Wilt's past and the storyline overall to this episode was just very well made. My only nit-pick about this episode is probably the running gag with Officer Nina giving Frankie tickets. Like seriously? she even gave Frankie a stupid ticket for calling her by her first name and that, my friends, is NOT against the law so she kinda annoyed me giving Frankie tickets throughout the episode but I'll let it slide and won't take away points. I enjoyed the flashback of how Nina created Eduardo and how he was protecting her and that Eduardo influenced Nina to be brave. Those nerds in the episode were pretty funny too. This episode did have some good humor along the way such as the nerd telling Bloo that he's looking up important information on his laptop then Bloo takes a peak at his laptop and says "No it's not, that's just a website on how to pick up women" (that cracked me up), Frankie asking the family (who Wilt helped that little pink stuffed bear find) if the gang use the restroom at their house and everyone takes a bathroom break, the judge telling the gang about how Wilt was a hero because he mowed off the grass in every house in the neighborhood, and more. Another thing that kinda annoyed me too was the gang talking a little too much explaining the situation (especially Bloo) when they found him but that's okay because it wasn't extremely annoying. I did enjoy seeing Wilt help that little pink stuffed bear find her family and that she got to reunite with the family which was nice and I loved how the family was grateful that Wilt found the little pink stuffed bear and I found it pretty funny that they were crying. The scene with Wilt in prison and telling the prisoners about his past with his creator was a very good scene to watch. We also find out in this episode how Wilt got a messed up right eye and a right arm caught off which dealt with Wilt pushing his creator out of the way when Foul Karry was gonna fall on his creator Jordan Michaels which explains how Wilt lost his right arm and Wilt's right eye got messed up when the basketball fell on it. I found it sad how Wilt and his creator never saw each other never again after the day they lost their game but it turned out that Jordan Michaels was looking for Wilt after the game they lost and Wilt was hiding from him which Jordan said that day taught him something more important which was winning isn't everything and that friendship is more important. Also interesting to know how Coco was discovered which was the two nerds going into an island on the South Pacific and discover Coco playing the ukelele. It's also good to see Wilt reunite with his creator again and how his creator Jordan Michaels explained the situation from that day they lost the game. I just loved pretty much everything about this episode. It has good and enjoyable humor, I enjoyed the characters, and I thought the storyline was strong all the way through and I highly recommend it. Overall, a perfect 1-hour episode of "Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends"... it's one of my favorites and I was glad I got to see this episode again earlier this morning today. 10/10moreless
  • The Foster's gang meet their creators while Wilt goes off looking for his.

    Okay this was the first (and best) Foster's TV movie special. It begins with the Imaginary Freinds at a party with their creators, in the Foster's backyard. Wilt seemed a bit cooky when they asked him about his creator. So later that night Wilt goes off looking for his creator... or so it seems. So when the Fosters friends find out he's gone missing they go on a cross-country trip to find him. They meet a whole lot of people and Imaginary friends. the creators to the friends are Coco: Nerds, Eduardo: Police Officer, Bloo: Mac (Duh!) Wilt also gets some problems along his travels like get into jail and miss his train. He also does good things like return a lost Imaginary friend to its owner and help an old farmer. But when he reaches his destination he meets someone he didn't want to see again. His name is Ball Larry, a bigger, better and meaner basketball Imaginary friend than Wilt. After their rematch game, Wilt finally gets to see his creator after such a long time.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (17)

    • It showed in the flashback that Wilt's arm was crushed and his eye was hit with a basketball but it didn't explain how it got cut off.

    • The ticket that Officer Nina gave to Frankie when Frankie called her Nina was the ticket that officer Nina was writing in the beginning.

    • Frankie told Madam Foster that they would be back home in the afternoon. Wouldn't Madame Foster be worried since they came back in the night?

    • When Wilt is sitting at the train station it looks like his eyes are switched.

    • Goof: When the friends say that Wilt took his tooth brush you can see that Bloo's tooth brush is blue. Although in "House of Bloo's" you can see that Bloo is carrying a red tooth brush. However he could have changed it after "Everyone Knows It's Bendy" because Bendy was scrubbing the toilet with Bloo's tooth brush.

    • Before Nina's flashback of how she created Eduardo, the gang is sitting outside the courthouse building. After the flashback, they are all in the bus.

    • Why did Nina give Frankie a ticket just because Frankie called her by her first name? That's not against the law.

    • When Wilt was helping the farmer with the hay, couldn't he see that it was dark already?

    • When Foul Larry gains a point and they went back in the middle, How come Foul Larry still had the ball?

    • Nina Valerosa's name is a joke of the Spanish words: "Niña Valerosa" which means Valiant Girl.

    • At the mansion it is said Wilt took his toothbrush but when he opens his bag theres just a ball and Wilt has no pockets.

    • When Wilt is in jail and the other inmates are talking about their crimes, one of them says that his crime was taking back his wife's puppy. However, this isn't against the law, so why is he in jail?
      Reply: He might have abused it in the process, which is against the law.

    • How is Wilt able to drive the lawnmower for so many days without having to refuel it?

    • When you first see the imaginary friend Stats for the Home and Away part it says Wilt and Larry, but later it changes to Home and Away.

    • Wilt bounces the hay like a basketball, but hay doesn't roll up or bounce like that.

    • The judge said that after the adults went to work and the kids went to school, Wilt came and cut their lawns but when he finished cutting the grass, Wilt sees some kids playing basketball.

    • Frankie calls her grandmother to tell her that she and the people on the bus had to stay in a motel, but the sign outside clearly says that it is a hotel.

  • QUOTES (7)

  • NOTES (23)

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

    • Animation Studios: Cartoon Network Studios and Boulder Media, Ltd.

    • Jackie Khones' creator, seen briefly in this episode, resembles Cartoon Network executive Khaki Jones.

    • Look Closely: In the scene where Wilt is waiting at the train station, he hands a magazine to the man next to him. If you look closely at the magazine, you can see Wilt's creator, Jordan Michaels, on the cover of it.

    • LISTEN CLOSELY: Nina (Eduardo's creator) says to the two neighborhood bullies "Leave him alone you dum bravocudos!" "Bravocudo" is Spanish for "Jerk".

    • Tickets given by Officer Nina Valerosa to:
      Frankie: Two for wrong parking, one for not watching the road, one for speeding and one for driving through a yellow light.
      Michael: One for parking his private jet on the street.

    • We know how Wilt got his bad eye and lost his arm, but it isn't explained how he got the stiches in his face

    • Throughout the TV-Movie-special, you see hints of Wilt's creator, Jordan Michaels. (parody of Michael Jordan)
      A-In the beginning of the show, the friends are watching a basketball game, and the Announcer mentions Jordan Michaels making a dunk.
      B-In the bus station, there is a poster with Jordan Michaels' face on it entitled 'Astro Slam'. ...And
      C-When Wilt hands the guy on the train station the magazine you can see Jordan on the front cover.
      D-When Wilt is in the city, there are kids playing basketball in a garage space, like Wilt's kid used to play Wilt.

    • After Frankie dai that road rage, you can see Officer Nina Valerosa sitting in the back and then her arm suddenly pops out next to Frankie, who was driving, to give her a ticket.

    • Many years ago, Wilt lost an important basketball game and disappointed his creator, Jordan Michaels. This explains why Wilt says "sorry" a lot.

    • In the scene at the reunion where some of the friends are watching a game on Socket Tubey, you can hear the announcer mention Jordan Michaels and the name of his team, the Cows.

    • With a full year before his and Jordan's first lost, and Foul Larry saying it'd been about 30 since, Wilt is about 31 years old. It was mentioned in "Room With A Feud" that he'd been at the home longer than many other friends, so now it's revealed just how long that is.

    • Now we know how Coco was "discovered". The nerds were hunting on an island off the South Pacific, when they found a bird, Coco, "playing" a ukulele.

    • This is the third time Wilt went to Jail. The first was in "When There's a Wilt. There's a Way," then had himself voluntarily incarcerated in "Crime After Crime".

    • The premiere of this episode was in a letterbox/widescreen format. On a Friday, November 24, 2006 repeat of the episode, it was shown in a full screen (4:3 aspect ratio) format instead. The repeat had less detail and looked as if it were zoomed into the original picture.

    • Frankie and the people from the bus stayed in room 7 of the motel they were at on their search for Wilt.

    • Wilt's creator, Jordan Michaels, wore a red basketball shirt and shorts with the number 1 on the chest, as well as red, white and blue striped wristbands and socks, as well as black and white basketball sneakers when he was a child, which led to Wilt's look when he was created of a red body with the number 1 on his chest, red, white, and blue striped wristbands and socks, and black and white basketball sneakers.

    • Wilt used to have two arms and two good eyes. His arm was crushed by Foul Larry, and a basketball hit his eye. It seems that he also got his arm amputated.

    • Credits: Wilt acting like a fan with the friends at a basketball game Jordan Michaels is playing in.

    • Running Gags: 1) Nina Valerosa ticketing Frankie for traffic violations. 2) Bloo delivering silly creators for Wilt, along with telling everyone about being a criminal. 3) Douglas and Adam falling in love for Frankie. 4) Frankie's road rage. 5) Wilt's journey being delayed to help someone. 6) Coco nagging Douglas and Adam (twice, Adam complains to her that "You sound like my mother.")

    • Human Debuts: Nina Valerosa, Eduardo's creator; Douglas and Adam, the scientists who discovered Coco; Jordan Michaels, Wilt's creator, Sara and her parents.

      Imaginary Friends Debuts: Foofy Woogums, Stats, Foul Larry, as well as lots of other friends who appear while Wilt and Foul Larry are playing basketball.

    • This is the first episode to be a movie, as well as the second movie of the series.

    • This is the first (and so far only) episode where we get to see the creators of Wilt and Eduardo, and the scientists that studied Coco before she came to Foster's.

  • ALLUSIONS (15)

    • Fluffer Nutter's creator resembles Paul Teutul Sr. from the Discovery Channel hit series, American Chopper.

    • Fast Forward: The hat in the train station is also similar to the one that Madame Foster is wearing in "The Buck Swaps Here".

    • Adam: Hurley from "Lost"

    • If you look closely in the lost and found of the train station, you will see a Viking hat. In the Cartoon Network Foster's game "Big Fat Awesome House Party" the Viking hat is one of other available game prizes when using a code.

    • All: The Name Game

      While on the bus at the start of one scene, we hear everyone on the bus (except the road rage infused Frankie) singing the 1965 Shirley Eliis tune "The Name Game."

    • Wilt: On a little tractor for a few days and nights.

      The scene where Wilt is riding a little tractor (and each night Wilt only moves a few feet) is the same to an episode of Dexter's Laboratory, called "Ol' McDexter", when each night, Jebediah's horse and buggy moves very slowly. Even the voice of the farmer Wilt helps with the hay, Jeff Bennett, is the same actor who voiced Jebediah on "Dexter's Laboratary".

    • Wilt: Hi-Ho Lawn Mower, Away!

      The Judge's story about Wilt, and his calling him "The Lawn Ranger" is similar to the fictional wild west hero/mercenary The Lone Ranger.

    • Douglas and Adam: Escape from Dexter's Laboratory and Best. Parody. Ever?

      The look of Douglas is simular to Mandark, a character on Dexter's Laboratory, a series Craig McCracken worked on, while Adam is loosely based on Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.

    • Foul Larry: Bird in the hand?
      "Foul Larry" is a reference to Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird, as is the color of his uniform, Kelly Green.

    • Computers: iPears, anyone?

      Look closely at the computers Douglas and Adam use. The logo has a pear with a bite out of it, a parody of Apple's iMac logo.

    • When Wilt is in the bus station right before he finds the umbrella, you can see an advertisement with the cartoon character from the Cartoon Network movie Re-Animated.

    • Jordan Michaels: Air Michaels?

      Jordan Michaels is a spoonerized name of basketball great Michael Jordan.

    • Douglas and Adam: And the number 42, too!
      The names Douglas and Adam are another reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams and the reference on Adam's shirt to the number "42" as the answer to everything.

    • Episode: The plot thickens
      The plot of this episode is fairly similar to L Frank Baum's book The Tin Woodman of Oz, where the titular character tries to find his old girlfriend.

    • The title is a reference to the movie, Good Will Hunting, starring Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Robin Williams.
