With Bloo's help, they make T-Rexatron III Alien Wolfhound, A Prequel In Time: The Unrelenting. Eduardo, though, thinks he has a problem breaking wind when it was Bloo doing sound effects and doesn't want to be in Bloo's movie which forces Bloo to make him to a computer animated character in his movie.

  • I thought that this episode was great when I first saw it. I especially liked 3D-CGI Eduardo.

    The episode begins with Mac recording for his school project, and interviews his friends at Foster's. Bloo, after watching this, plans to edit it. The next day, Mac shows the video to the class, and, despite of it having fart sounds, it becomes a big hit. Eduardo, who has watched it also, is embarassed, and sends a note to the studio that produces his favorite educational show. Next, Bloo was filming Mac's short film, which Eduardo takes no part of, and he needed money to make it better. However, Eduardo, watching a fresh episode of his favorite show, records over Bloo's edited film, and it is rejected after being watched at the film festival. The episode ends with Bloo feeling rejected, saying to Mac "As long as everything else is awesome, you don't need an e--" just as "THE END" shows.moreless

  • Nothing special, but it wasn't that bad either.

    Well basically Mac needs help from Bloo to make a movie for this school contest because the principal chose him to make it. Bloo keeps needing money so Mac needs to sell stuff on "Schmebay"(or Ebay same thing) and ends up stealing Madame Foster's stuff to use. In the end Eduardo feels sad because everyone makes fun of him for farting when he didn't so he asks his favorite cartoon(a copy of Dora the Explorer) to make an episode for them. So at the end of the movie it gets replaced by the thing Eduardo recorded. Basically I thought it was an average episode as in nothing new but it was still great.moreless
  • It is extremely clever and gives out a negative message about commercialism.

    It is extremely clever and gives out a negative message about commercialism. Mac needed to come up with a film for his school's film festival and begs Bloo to help him. However, when Bloo agrees he blows it out of proprtion that leave Mac stealing Madam Foster's Possesions and selling them on Schmee-Bay, due to the deb Bloo accumulated. There are bouts of randomness and sillines that climbs the charts of hilarity for older kids as well as, young children.moreless
  • Yet another cartoon where Bloo acts foolish and tries to get things done his way. In the end, things look good, until when Eduardo watches TV...

    I found this episode very funny and it had the same Bloo we all have grown to know and love. A stubbern fool. When Mac comes over to Foster's to make a short movie about the place, Bloo has a look at it and states that it's rubbish. He promises Mac that he'll bring it to school tomorrow, edited to perfection. When he finally comes, he hands the tape over to Mac and Mac puts the Video Player on Play. After realising that Bloo just added fart sounds to the video, Mac gets angry at him. Soon this changes when the principal of the school tells Mac that the movie is great and has entered him in a film-making competiton. Now Mac needs Bloo's help to make the movie, but Bloo is insulted by Mac's reactions before. Bloo makes a deal with Mac that he will help him if the movie is done HIS way. Thus, comes the beginning of the blockbuster hit, T-Rexatron III Alien Wolfhound, A Prequel In Time: The Unrelenting. Or is it just another homemade movie that is ruined by Eduardo's Loren is Explorin'? Oh well, it stinks eitherway. The End.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Wilt: (Acting) Captain, if I don't make it back here alive, tell my little boy...I love 'im.

    • (The class is watching Bloo's edited version of Mac's movie)
      Mac: (To Eduardo) Just be yourself!
      Eduardo: Okay! (Flatulence sound heard.) Hello, Mac...
      (Coco and Wilt walk in)
      Coco: (Flatulence sound heard; lashes teeth)

    • Lauren: (on the television) We're going through the forest! We're going through the forest! We're going through the forest!

    • Bloo: People don't care about endings! As long as everything else is awesome, you don't need an en... (Episode ends with title card reading "THE END")

    • Cartoon Producer: It's time to make a very special episode...Lauren?

    • Bloo: (When seeing "Lauren is Exploring" taped over the end of "T-Rexatron III Alien Wolfhound, A Prequel In Time: The Unrelenting") No no no! This isn't my movie! My movie makes sense! Someone taped over it! (Tomatoes being thown at him) Please! I'm allergic to tomatoes! And rejection!

    • Bloo: The movie is supposed to be about friendship. I like that, but what about instead of everybody being friends, we make everybody enemies?

    • Bloo: Now say 'She shells sea shells down by the sea shore.
      Mac: She shells sea shells...
      Bloo: While doing jumping jacks.

  • NOTES (16)

    • Fast Forward: 1. The scene with Wilt, Cuffy and the space alien would be viewed by Jackie Khones on the TV in "Challenge of the Super Friends." 2. The set of "Space Wars" figurines that Mac sold in this episode on SchmeBay would later pop up at the swap meet in "The Buck Swaps Here."

    • Cecil B. DeMille: Filmmaker

      Bloo mentioned that he purchased a megaphone off of Schmebay from Cecil B. DeMille, a pioneer film director and producer.

    • Bloo is allergic to tomatoes.

    • Animation Studio: Boulder Media, Ltd.

    • Credits: Mac and the friends are on the couch watching "Lauren is Exploring" when Eduardo says "Excuse me". Everyone else waves their hands and says "Ewwwwwwwwwww!", and Eduardo says "It's okay, it's perfectly natural. I'm confortable with it", then Bloo faints and Eduardo says "I said 'excuse me.'"

    • The creator of the show "Lauren is Exploring" looks a lot like Craig McCracken, the creator of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and is in fact voiced by Craig himself.

    • Frankie appears briefly but has hardly any dialogue. She just laughs at Bloo's "pooting."

    • If you listen carefully during the party scene, you can hear the techno music heard from the episode, Partying Is Such Sweet Soiree.

    • This episode marks the third appearance of Mac's Teacher, the first being "Bloo's Brothers" and the second being "Bye Bye Nerdy" However, the teacher that appears in "Bye Bye Nerdy" is different to the one in this episode and "Bloo's Brothers."

    • "Tom Hanks" makes a cameo. He plays an alien with a muffled voice (voiced by Keith Ferguson, who provides Bloo's voice on the show) and his face is covered by a bucket. In the movie, he falls off a cliff, into a river, and over a waterfall.

    • Look Hard: You'll see that Eduardo is computer animated in 3-D. The town this scene takes place also resembles Townsvile, from the show, The Powerpuff Girls. This show is another Craig McCraken masterpiece.

    • Running Gags: 1) Bloo's "pooting" over Eduardo's film making Eduardo embarrassed. 2) Everyone - including Mr. Herriman - laughing at the armpit pooting of Bloo. 3) Bloo asking for more money and Mac selling collectable things on Schmebay. 4) Bloo persuading Mac to let him do the movies by sarcastically acting as though he'd drop out of the production.

    • Title Card Sound: Old fashioned movie projector clickering away.

    • At the start of the show, Bloo is doing the Worm he did in Bye Bye Nerdy and Bloo's Brothers. If you'll listen, you can even hear the same music from the former episode.

    • Mac and Bloo recreate the flying bike scene from E.T. The Extra Terrestrial in the movie.

    • Imaginary Friend Debuts: Oscar, Camcordy, Cuffy.

      Human Debuts: Mac's School principal.
