    Bloo wants to be a big rock star! And he sees his golden opportunity in a new band called Pizza Party! Unfortunately for Bloo, they already have a lead singer in Bloppy Pants and they do Not appreciate the changes Bloo tries to make to their band! But someone else appreciates the music: Mac! And he signs on and becomes their Manager! So Bloo desides to form his Own band called Taco Fiesta! With Wilt, Coco, and Eduardo! Unfortunately, Bloo's arrogance and impatience once again get in the way and he fires them for refusing to perform to his required levels of performing! So he's going to try a solo career, but Bloo might be in for a rude wakeup call unless his friends are willing to do something about it and help him out! Fortunately, that's what they do, everyone makes up and everything works out for the best in the end, which is all any good cartoon strives to make possible, which is why I like this show! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless
  • A classic battle of the bands! Bloo Sabath V.S. Pizza Party V.S. Taco Fiesta.

    So, Bloo's jealous of a new band in the house that won't let him in. So, he forms himself his own band: Taco Fiesta. Problem is, Bloo is Bloo, so the band immediately drops him out.



    Meanwhile, Pizza Party's popularity rides higher and higher, and Bloo decides to form his own band consisting of himself only. The songs in this episode range from both hilarious to catchy. For example, Taco Fiesta's song goes simply like this:



    "Co-Co"



    "Potatoes"



    (x4)



    "Kuuuuuummmquuuuaats!"



    Next, there's the "Talk to the Jeans" song by Pizza Party. While it gets stuck in my head all day, it is very silly. I mean, the whole song is about getting over someone by a pair of Denime jeans. LOL.



    Seriously, a very historical, musical, and hilarious episode in "Foster's" history.moreless
  • Bloo is jealous of a house rock band. Him, Ed, Coco and Wilt form a competing band but they can't play very well. Bloo leaves them and dresses like a punk rocker. He challenges Pizza Party(the other band) to a battle of the bands.moreless

  • Schlock Star: Bloo starts his own band with Wilt, Eduardo, and Coco.

    This episode was kind of good or Foster's one.



    Schlock Star: To cut to the chase, this is about a band named Pizza Party, but Bloo wants to start his own, which dosen't start out good. Coco, of course, Mac likes the band and puts them on concert, but Bloo and his band do that too. Potato, I seem to like the band's song anyway, even Coco, Wilt, and Eduardo's song. It was the battle of the bands! To let you be more expected, you should watch this episode. End of review. Kumquat!



    Plot: This episode was 'cleverly plotted.'



    Character: This episode never had bad taste in character, except when Bloo gets messed with the Pizza Party band and starts his own called the ''Taco Fiesta.''



    Originality: This episode was not very unoriginal, but of course good.



    Action: There wasn't any action, but too bad there can't be no more concert, ever! Oh well, this episode did turn out to be good as I said.



    Episode Grade: C+moreless
  • This episode is such a rockin' episode! It's great for those who love rock and roll, especially the cartoon itself and music! Even for those who wanna go to concerts, see what they look like, what it is like there and bands!moreless

    This is one of the best episodes of Foster's that I ever watched. I'm not that into rock and roll music but I do listen to music. Anyhoo, it's weird that I like rock music or songs only in cartoons, shows, or movies like for example "The Chosen One" by Mavin and "The Chosen One" by The Jonas Brothers which were both the Season One & Two versions of the American Dragon: Jake Long theme song. I was doing a little dancing while sitting on my bed and rocking to the music. I like the song that the Pizza Party band and the Taco Fiesta band made, but the song Taco Fiesta did was kinda lame 'cause it's just the same words over and over again. I think the music seems to be dance with a little mix of pop 'cause I just heard some sounds of instruments which were normally being played in dance music. I was rocking to the song that the Pizza Party band did and dancing to the song Taco Fiesta did. Those songs were pretty awesome. :D The lead singer of the band sung pretty good and how those band members played those instruments were fantastic. I loved the music, wish I could download it from the internet. Unless, I could use my MP3 player to record the song directly from the episode like I did to the Season Two theme song of Am-Drag. This episode has some ups and downs and it would have been better if the song "Designer Jeans" wasn't been played or done more than once and if this episode have more funny parts. Probably, Craig McCracken or anybody of the animation crew must have over done it. But there were funny parts like for example, Frankie shouted to the gang, "No more concerts, EVER!!!!" and then fire on the Foster's Home could be seen as well as a few fire vehicles are there to put out the fire with the hose. I think I also saw some police cars parking outside the home. The finale was so awesome than when the song was been played over and over again. You know, I did thought of some bands myself but they are not rock bands. They are parodies of my favourite bands, Girls Aloud and Sugababes. The Mario parody of Girls Aloud is the Marioverse Maidens and the American Dragon: Jake Long parody of the Sugababes is the American Angels. Members of the Marioverse Maidens are Princess Peach as Nadine, Princess Daisy as Cheryl, Kate as Sarah, Grace as Nicola and Azalea as Kimberly. The members of American Angels are Rose as Heidi, Trixie Carter as Keisha and Jasmine from the American Dragon: Jake Long episode, "Dragon Breath" as Amelle. Overall, this episode is awesome but in small doses and it should have been better. It's not as funny as the rest of the episodes. By the way, those characters from American Dragon and the Mario series, I don't own them. They are obviously belonged to their respective owners. But I do own the idea of the characters forming a band and the name of the groups. I have a wild imagination, by the by.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Goo says that Bloo is a self-proclaimed "Legend Of Rock" (when a picture of Bloo jumping on Frankie's bed is shown) shortly before beginning her "Cribs" interview with Bloo, a telescope can be seen next to Frankie's bed.

    • It must be wondered how Pizza Party ever got the equipment for a band in the first place. Mr. Harriman certainly wouldn't spend the Foster's budget on band instruments because the noise would be too loud or for some other reason he'd come up with

    • It's learned in this episode that Bloppy Pants is a very good singer.

    • The design of Bloo's eye make-up changes from a regular D to a comb imitation periodically.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Coco: Co-co.
      Eduardo: Po-ta-to.
      Coco: Co-co.
      Eduardo: Po-ta-to
      (This is repeated for three more choruses until...)
      Wilt: Kum-quaaaaaaaat!

    • Bloppy Pants: (Singing)
      I tried to call you, I even dropped by,
      You completely ignored me, and left with some other guy.
      Alone and heartbroken, I went to the mall,
      I saw an amazing thing, hanging up on the wall.

      (Chorus)
      The sweetest pair of Denim, designer jeans you've ever seen.
      I slipped those bad boys on me, and totally forgot that you were so mean.
      (Repeated)

      Now all of a sudden, you call like three times a day.
      I'm not crawling back now, these jeans are walking away!

      (Chorus)

      (Last line of chorus)
      They fit so perfect, now you can see I'm a love machine!

    • Bloo: (Bloo is just about to make a performance and fireworks blow, and he is about to sing a song) Umh... Agh...
      Audience Member: Forgot to write a song?
      Bloo: No-o-o! (Long period of silence)

    • Wilt: No offense, Bloo, but these costumes are lame.
      Bloo: Not lame. Lamé.

  • NOTES (8)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Bloo: Gene Simmons, eat your heart out
      Bloo's black and white face make-up is a reference to the rock band Kiss, who wear similar face paint.

    • The Blue Sabbath Experience Mach III
      Parodies on heavy metal band Black Sabbath and the rock band The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Mach III is probably just cool sounding things to add.

    • Devo:
      Another one of Bloo's costume changes is based off of the Devo outfit worn in Devo's 1980 music video hit song of Whip It Good!

    • The Beatles Sergant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
      During Bloo's various different costume changes during his interview, one of the costumes he wears is based off of one of the designs that one of the Beatles wore for their masterpiece album Sergant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    • Episode Title: Schlock Star

      An obvious pun on the term (and 2002 Mark Wahlberg film title) "Rock Star."
