  • This episode was a bit immature

    This episode was a bit cruel. They made Bloo do all those things. And Bloo was being stupid he let them make fun of him like that If I were him I would just beat them up. Especially Wilt and Coco. I'm still mad at Wilt, Ed, and Coco for treating him like that. I would just get adopted because I couldn't stay at the house because I don't like being treated wrong too or abused. Well I have nothing nothing else to say so, I don't like this episode as much as some of the other ones good bye. So long.
  • Best episode yet!

    I thought that this was the best epside yet as they showed everybody getting onto the bus after their home is with termites and that we see Frankie only briefly as we wonder how she felt after Mr Harriman left. Probably was on cartwheels. Also Madame Foster & Mac were absent. And that Wilt, Coco, and Eduardo, along with Bloo, have to go there but determined to break the rules of Mr Harriman. Bloo gets caught at first but then, two new friends, come on in. Bloo thinks it is poor Coco, when she had nothing to do with it at all. He is the butt of the joke here! Like he always is!
  • This was great! one word for this epi: Funny! Frit and Frat are hilarious.

    Anyway,the house gets termites. the friends have to go to a hotel. Bloo gets hyper, due to coffee,Coco tells him to get ice,he does it...because it's free. Wilt, Ed, and Coco do a classic prank,thus starting a prank war with those three and Bloo and Frit and Frat.

    Bloo does a crappy job at winning the war,so he pretends to admit defeat,then getting the last prank in with the classic buzzer prank to Coco.but when he gets on the bus to leave,someone pranked him with a whoopie cushion.we find out Coco didn't do it because she didn't get on the bus until after the prank. the person who did do it made me gasp.
  • The entire Foster's Home household must spend the night in a motel, seven hours away, while the house is being fumigated for termites. Mr. Herriman lays down some ground rules, which Bloo is determined to break, resulting in a "prank war".

    This was one of the funniest episodes to date! The entire household of Foster's has to spend the night in a motel, which is a seven-hour bus trip from their home, due to the house being fumigated for termite infestation. Once the bus arrives at its destination, Mr. Herriman lays down some ground rules for behavior, largely in the interest of saving money, such as no eating from the "honor box" refrigerator, no ordering room service, no "Pay to Watch" movies, etc. Right from the start, Bloo is determined to break each and every rule in his excitement, much to the dismay of his roommates, Wilt, Coco and Eduardo, who are exhausted from the long, uncomfortable bus trip, and only want to rest. In his attempts to get them to join in his "fun", Bloo gulps down a pot of coffee, going on a caffeine "high" that results in him being extremely rude and obnoxious to the other three. To get back at him, they plot to play the old "bucket of water over the door prank" after sending him out for ice, and pull it off successfully, but the dripping water alerts Mr. Herriman in the room below, and Bloo is caught and blamed for the prank(it doesnt help that the room service HE ordered shows up as Mr. Herriman is scolding him for the water on the floor), and summarily locked in a janitor's closet to keep him out of trouble. He's unintentionally released by two newcomer Imaginary Friend, "Frit" and "Frat", who are a couple of clueless individuals loosely based, it would seem, on "Beavis and Butthead". Bloo plans to enlist their aid in getting even with his three roommates, especially Coco, whom he believes to be the mastermind of the bucket prank, but Frit and Frat, being so utterly clueless(they mistook the janitor's closet for first a bathroom, then a gift shop), prove to be more of a hindrance than a help. Despite Bloo's every effort, his attempts at staging a successful "prank war" against his roomies are second-guessed, and the other three wind up beating him to the punch with their own pranks each time. They even succeed in tricking him, through the use of a clever Mr. Herriman disguise, into cleaning the entire motel, inside and out. While the pranks themselves are predictable, it's that predictability, and Bloo's lack of originality, that makes the whole situation funny, combined with his seriously underestimating his three roommates and OVERestimating the assistance of Frit and Frat, who are happiest playing the pranks on themselves! By the following morning, Bloo finally can take it no more, and goes after Coco, whom he assumes is responsible for having planned all the pranks against him, in order to get in the last prank-that old hand buzzer trick. Satisfied that he's won the "prank war" at last, Bloo gloats his way onto the bus, only to find out that he WASN'T the Ultimate Prankster; SOMEONE has placed a Whoopie cushion in his seat, and he falls for it! Coco, however, has not yet gotten on the bus at this time, so Bloo is left wondering just WHO the REAL Pranking King was, who got the final prank over on him...and the last few seconds provide a very satisfying little plot twist indeed, revealing another side to one of the series' most complex characters!
    Mac was not present in this episode, though honestly, it would have been difficult to have him along, given that this was an overnight stay seven hours from Foster's. Madame Foster was also AWOL, and Frankie appears only briefly, but neither one's absence detracts from the fun of the episode.
  • Good!

    The Foster's gang must stay in a hotel for the night. Mr. Herriman is clear on rules, but Bloo breaks them while with Wilt, Coco, and Eduardo. They pull a prank on Bloo to get him back, but Bloo gets in trouble for it. He vows revenge to Coco, who he thinks is the ringleader. He spends all night trying to get back at them, but they just keep getting him instead. He gets help (sort of) from two dumb imaginary friends. In the end, Wilt, Eduardo and Coco get Bloo by pretending to be Mr. Herriman and making Bloo clean the whole hotel.

    This episode was good! I missed Mac, my favorite character, although I hardly noticed because this was entertaining! The two dumb guys were funny and the pranks were good! This episode gets an 8.0!
  • Not the best I've ever seen, but still good. For the first time, Mac is not in this episode, but you get to see bloo high on coffee. He's like mac when he eats sugar!

    Yes. This was good. The house has termites, and the friends move out to a hotel for 1 night of chaos. Bloo is crazy on doin something fun, but goes a little over board by drinking coffee and goin crazy like mac on sugar (this proves that Mac gave him the way of being really hyper. HA.) Although, it was torture for bloo, the friends kept on beating bloo, and I'd thought he do better at pranking, so, yeahhhh. That's all. B B B V V B B B B B B B B B B B B B B B.
