  • It's hot in Topeka!

    I love this episode because it's all about Bloo and Mac. My favorite part was when Bloo was watching the weather and the weather man said it's hot in Topeka. Then Bloo kept saying it and it got funnier. One of the best episodes ever.
  • Bloo and mac are left alone in fosters

    this episode was about bloo left alone in fosters while the rest of the people in the house go to the beach and enjoy life without bloo for a few hours

    this episode was silly and good we see what would happen if mac and bloo are in fosters alone for about 6 hours. they do weird and silly stuff they even wanna slide down the stairs and remember Fosters is huge and they have about 1,000 or more steps! i like the fact that frankie left bloo on purpose it was funny and she dident even feel bad about it lol

    so good episodemoreless
  • Favorite 4th season episode.

    This is my favorite 4th season episode in that it entales most of the Foster's House and the fact that Mac and Bloo could do anything in any part of the house from running around the house to eating massive piles of food in the kitchen. This episode entales every part of the house, The foyer, the Dining room, Mr Herriman's office, the kitchen, the arcade, the basketball court, the attic, the living room, Frankie's Room, the library, the backyard, a bathroom, that round hall with lots of entries (the one with the round foster's carpet with the big F on it) and the berdoom of wilt, Coco, Eduardo and Bloo. This is one of the Reasons I love this episode.moreless
  • Bloo is left behind (on purpose) while the rest of the friends in the house go to the beach. Unsure what to do at first, he wastes time watching the weather(hilarious!)until Mac shows up to help him do the most awsome of all things.moreless

    As a thirty-something adult with 2 children, I am not the least bit embarrassed to say I actually check my channel guide to find this episode and watch it each chance I get. It doesn't matter that we already own the episode! It's hilarious! The part where Bloo is watching the weather makes everyone at our house laugh histerically. Then, when Bloo experiments with the eyebrow pencil, it's just one hilarious thing after another. I can no longer say "it's hot" without finishing the sentence with "in Topeka"! I love this episode best of all, but hte series if definitely my favorite on Cartoon Network, and there is no objectionable content for a parent to worry about.moreless
  • Laugh-Out-Loud Funny!

    This episode is one of my most favorite! Really, all Foster's episodes have at least one funny scene, but I found this one had At least 6 funny scenes that are catchy enough to memorize and recite to yourself when you're bored or to cheer yourself up when you're stuck in traffic. That's what I do! =) LOL! This is Mac and Bloo at their best. You might find yourself more attached to their characters after watching them plummet down an elivator shaft, gorge themselves with junk food in the kitchen, attempt a practical joke, search for treasure in the back yard, and cause all the chaos expected when they're left in the house alone all day. I'll never get tired of this episode no matter how often it airs or how old it gets. =)moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • When Mac and Bloo dig holes in the backyard, they only find a sack full of Mr. Pockets' mementos. Yet, when Madam Foster walks outside, she simply walks up to an already-dug hole and picks up her treasure from inside. Mac or Bloo would have noticed it when they dug the hole.

    • We find out that Foster's has 4,888 total steps.

    • When Frankie and Herriman are talking about bloo you can see in the background palm trees. Look closely one of them has eyes so that means it is Coco buried in the sand.

    • In "Partying Is Such Sweet Soiree", Bloo exposes that Mac cannot eat sugar or else he goes crazy and gets a sugar rush. But when Mac and Bloo stuff themselves in the kitchen, it looks like Mac was eating sugar.

    • In "Land of the Flea." The gang's alarm clock went off at 7:00 am. In this episode, it goes off at 9:00 am.

    • As the rest of the residents return to the house from the beach, Mr. Herriman is clearly wearing his black top hat,but as he leans in to ask Master Mac and Blooregard if they had been cleaning all day, he is wearing his yellow beach hat.

    • The "strawberry" jam Bloo offered to Mac was clearly grape jam - it was purple.

  • QUOTES (17)

    • Mac: Where is everyone?
      Bloo: Everyone who?
      Mac: Everyone who lives at Foster's? Madame Foster, Mr. Herriman, Wilt...
      Bloo: Oh, they're gone.
      Mac: (In surprise) Gone?? They couldn't have just disappeared! What if they're in trouble?
      Bloo: Calm down, I'm sure there's a perfectly logical explanation...
      Mac: Yeah, like what?
      Bloo: Meteor.
      Mac: (Giving Bloo an unimpressed look)
      Bloo: You know the meteor that killed off the dinosaurs? Well, this was that meteor's son and it was looking for revenge, so it crashed into the earth wiping out every living thing except YOU and ME!
      Mac: Give me a break...
      Bloo: Think about it! Did you see anyone on your way over here?
      Mac: Yeah, I saw tons of people!
      Bloo: Zombies. (Again, Mac gives Bloo an unimpressed look) Everyone knows that when a meteor hits there's a nuclear explosion and everyone knows that when there's a nuclear explosion, zombies come out! (Imitates a zombie) Warrrggh! And you and me, Mac, we've got to fight 'em! (In sing-song fashion) Zombie fighters, nah nah nah nah, nahnah NAH NAH!!! Hi-yah!

    • (Mac and Bloo are watching one of Frankie's movies)

  • NOTES (11)


    • Plot: "Crime After Crime"
      There's two references here to events in "Crime After Crime" in this episode. First, when Wilt says "I'll go punish myself," this is a reference to when Mr. Herriman's insistence that Wilt punish himself (and his winding up in the same jail cell with Mr. H. after the police finds him red-handed with the jewels.) The other is during the credits when Madame Foster finds the Foster's Treasure, which was the plot device in Act 3 when Bloo tried to get himself out of eating "It."

    • Name: His Butler Wimpy
      No doubting this one for the character name of "Whipsmart McCoy's" sidekick that Blooregard calls Mac is derived from the Popeye character J. Wellington Wimpy.

    • The plot of this episode near the end is similar to the episode plot of O Ed Eleven, an episode of Ed, Edd, n Eddy. Mac and Bloo look for Madame Foster's treasure, and the Eds look for Eddy's brother's treasure.

    • This episode title is a variation of the phrase "Seize the day".
