  • Bloo's Brothers really saved Sight For Sore Eyes' a## on this

    8.0
    Now let me state that I hate Sight for Sore Eyes,and loved Bloo's Brothers. So now for my first episode review,I will review this episode. Okay,so let's start with Sight For Sore Eyes:



    It starts with Bloo trying to find Mac,and he finds him seeing an imaginary friend running on the street. They save him,and find out that he is a friend named Ivan who want to find his owner after getting blinded by the streetlights. Mac ditches Bloo,while Bloo tries to find him. Wilt,Coco,and Eduardo get super pissed at Bloo,while he gets beaten up by a kid's brother after doing something bad to him,while Ivan ditches Mac. The 3 friends find him in the dumpster,and Bloo tries to explain him what happened,only in a huge half-a##ed way. He says that Mac ditched him and that his brother Terrance threw him in the trash,and they believe him. Don't ask me how. They find Ivan,and when Mac passes by,the friends get very pissed off at him,and start bashing him. They all find Ivan's owner Stevie,and Ivan says that he didn't ditch him,even though he admitted it when he chewed Mac out. Ivan then gets blinded by a flash of a camera,and another chase occurs. Now,in my opinion,this episode just sucked. Ivan was extremely annoying with his constant "AHHH!!STEVIE!!" Crap that's not even funny. I hated Bloo for telling that huge lie about him in the dumpster,causing me more reasons to hate him. Wilt,Eduardo and Coco were at their worst in this episode. I just hated it when they called Mac names like "El Stupido" and "Ditchy mcabandonPants" all because they believed Bloo's lie. Ivan joining them was even worse. He's close to being as bad as Bendy. Plus,There were barely any funny moments in this episode. So yeah,I really did not enjoy this episode.

    Bloo's Brothers



    Mac brings Bloo for show and tell,and he ruins everything,but entertains the entire class. Mac gets tickets to the Ice Charades,and Bloo gets the other one,rubbing it in other people's faces. The entire class bring their Bloo imaginations (And a Blue Homestar Runner) to the class,and they soon have fun the entire house,and even have a choir. Mac tries to find Bloo for the tickets,and everybody wants to go,saying they were the real Bloo. Mac soon finds the real Bloo,after a hilrailous Jerry Maguire line. The founder of the IC comes,saying that it's canceled,but all of the Bloo clones make up for him,posing as the giant Blueberry. This episode was very enjoyable to watch. It was funnier than the other episode,and actually kept me watching. The Bloo's clones acted hilrailous,Bloo singing the "I'm going to the Ice Charades" song was so funny,and the Bloo acting emotional was just so funny. Just trust me,this is more enjoyable.

    9\10



    Overall,please watch Bloo's Brothers,not Sight for sore eyes.moreless
  • OMG HOMESTAR RUNNERx2!

    This was hilarious in Sight for sore eyes the ending was Homestar related, along with in Bloo's brothers with the one bloo "clone" that looked like Homestar! That kid must have been on homestarrunner before creating thier version of Bloo, lol. Well, besides the Homestar references, it was pretty funny, too. I really liked the part when all the different bloos were being tested by Mac, especially the last round. Poor Ed, he really wanted to go. I'm the type of person who feels sorry for and crys for cartoon characters. I am just wierd... I really need a life. Yeahmoreless
  • Sight for Sore Eyes seemed to get funnier as the story progress, while Bloos Brothers had it's moments here and there.

    7.0
    There are many misunderstandings in the first story. The story is a basic problem that becomes complex with Bloo lending a hand to help fix the problem. But isn't that always the case? It is funny though, but it is always funny when he suffers the consequences of his actions.



    The second story also involves Bloo helping out and messing up, providing unusual circumstances. The story has filler though, what with the exercise that Mac has to preform in order to get to the end of the story. Unfortunately, that isn't all that funny, so I wish something else happened.moreless
  • Sight for Sore Eyes? Heartwarming! Bloo\'s Brothers? Lighthearted!

    8.5
    This episode strays away from blatantly funny to rather touching.



    In Sight for Sore Eyes, a 24-eyed imaginary friend named Ivan is seperated from his blind child, Stevie. Mac and Bloo must help Ivan find Stevie before Stevie gets hurt. Meanwhile, Wilt, Eduardo and Coco are looking for Bloo, since they were in the middle of a game of Hide and Seek.



    In Bloo\'s Brothers, after Mac bring Bloo to show and tell to inform his class about the imaginary friends that can be adopted, the class makes their own copies of Bloo, each with variations that set them apart from the real Bloo. Mac also has a ticket for Bloo to see the Ice Charades, but he can only take his Bloo.



    I found Sight for Sore Eyes to be touching. I never have seen that many imaginary friends in the series so far show emotion for their child.



    Bloo\'s Brothers was rather interesting. It was funny and touching, since Mac had Bloo since he was 3 years old.



    I recommend this episode to anyone who wants a bit of a laugh tinged with drama.moreless
  • These episodes were good like I thought they would be!

    I wasn't as excited to watch Bloo's brothers but A Sight for Sore Eyes was really good! I thought it was funny when Ivan was running around screaming like crazy when he lost his blind friend Stevie. I was very glad to know that they chose Kevin McDonald from Kids in the Hall to play Ivan's voice and that made me like Ivan a little more. I think Kevin did a good job.moreless

  • NOTES (13)

  • ALLUSIONS (7)

    • Bloo Clone: Do you have Prince Albert in a can?
      This is a reference to an old phone prank call that asks the question. When the victim - in this case, Mr. Herriman -
      responds "I don't know what you're talking about," the prankster responds with "Well, you better let him out (before he sufficates!)" In addition, we see a can with "Prince Albert" on it hopping by from screen right to left as the other Bloos laugh.

      "Prince Albert" is a brand of pipe tobacco, named after Queen Victoria's consort. So strictly speaking, the joke would only work if it was aimed at a grocer who sells tobacco. Mr. Herriman, who isn't a grocer, doesn't understand the question. This isn't the first time that Herriman is the victim of a phone prank. Coco tricked him out of the house in "Partying Is Such Sweet Soiree."

    • Sappy Bloo Clone: Mac, you complete me.
      Taken from the movie, Jerry Maguire.

    • n/a: Bloo Design
      The design for one of the Bloos is inspired by Homestar Runner: a character from the popular online cartoon created by Matt and Mike Chapman. Another was inspired by Bart Simpson of The Simpsons.

    • n/a: Tiger Imaginary Friend
      During the scene in the foyer, when Mac and Bloo are given the tickets, twice you can see a Tiger Imaginary Friend in the background. This is probably reference to Hobbes, Calvin's imaginary friend in the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip.

    • n/a: Ice Charades
      The Ice Charades is a spoof of the old ice-skating show called Ice Capades, which ran from 1940 to 1998, and had featured one segment (such as The Smurfs) with the cast dressed in costumes.

    • n/a: Stevie
      Stevie is based - albeit loosely - on Stevie Wonder. They're both African-American, wear similar glasses, are blind, and they share many other similarities.

    • Episode Title: Bloo's Brothers
      The episode title is a spoof of the Saturday Night Live characters created by Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi known as "The Blues Brothers", who had a 1980 movie made with them as the stars. More info..
