    Bloo sure knows how to tell stories with a lot of imaginative qualities in them, and this episode proves it! Bloo is a parody of the Road Warrior, sworn by the Creator of All Existence to keep the Magic Crystal of Power safe from any hands of evil-doers who would use it to make sure Nobody else can have any fun! Herriman as Snooty is an evil, hypocritical general who wants to make sure this is the case! He wants to lock it away in his safe! But Edward as a little boy is the first to find it and uses it to dance the great dance danced in "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Than Wilt comes along as a parody of Obi-Wan Kenobi and tries to use his Jedi mind-tricks to acquire the crystal! And Coco as the creator of the Magical Crystal has her speech translated into English by Bloo for the very first time! Of course, Bloo is going to do his best to save the day, but even He might need help from Frankie who's playing the role of a Fairy Princess! If the gang completes three deadly tasks, they'll get a key which unlocks the door to the Crystal of Power! The first task is Really tricky! They have to collect two eggs from giant chickens! :lol: You Can't make that stuff up! Then they have to clean a tank, and take out the trash? Don't look at me, it's Bloo's story! Then they get the key, but Snooty isn't about to let the Crystal go without a fight! Fortunately, Road Warrior Bloo has a Popeye ability and gets stronger when he consumes a Submarine Sandwich! He tells Madame Foster who's parodying a Queen about Snooty's evil ways, but even She falls prey to the Crystal's seductive power! It is then the Road Warrior Bloo knows that a sacrifice must be made, and destroys the Crystal so it could Never fall into evil hands! It is a great story to be true, but Mac will be mad if he finds out certain elements are True! :idea:
  • TBSDATMPOP: Bloo tells Mac an outstanding story about him.

    8.0
    TBSDATMPOP: This episode was very funny and was entertaining, I would never believe Mac would believe in a tale of the ''Bloo Super-Dude,'' it started when Eduardo as a little boy finds a magic potato that the gang fight over, until Mr. Snooty(Herriman)steals it and the gang gets trapped and finds the imprisoned fairy(Frankie)who helps them by doing her chores, and at the end, the queen(Madame Foster)gets the magic potato and Mr. Snooty wants it from her, but the queen acts selfish about the potato!

    Plot: It made good sense and had good sense OF humor.
    Characters: They did good in this episode.
    Action: By the ''Bloo-Superdude,'' to you!

    Final Grade: B
  • this episode.....

    9.1
    this episode was realy silly the story that bloo told was a long realy good story

    Bloo turning to a superhero in that story was weird and funny

    in the beggining of the story i thought it was going to be boring, usually when bloo or someone tells a story its like a second long and its boring and not funny, when i saw the title of this episode i thought the episode would be about bloo in real life trying to protect a weird patato that had powers and when i saw this episode for the first time my thought was alittle correct

    this episode would have been a great season starter though even when its not a season starter i still like this episode so i give this episode a 9.1/10
  • This is one of the best of season five! XD

    I had been waiting for a new Foster's episode for practically weeks, which seemed almost like months, or years, till a new episode came on. But as you know...... I thought the episode rocked!!!! Although the ending was kind of ironic, with Bloo telling Mac an awesome story that he supposedly made up, all when all of the events in Bloo's story to Mac had actually happened. By the way, I may be a little late on reviewing something that aired weeks ago, but it still rocked! Still, I give this episode a solid ten out of ten! Good work, Craig McCracken! ;)

    This was one very creative show in which Bloo tells
    Mac an outlandish story. But surprisingly, rather than not believe in Bloo, Mac seems to like the story a lot.
    As it has the Foster Friends in a storylike setting to
    A fairy tale. With Bloo being the hero of his own story of course as only he can do. But with the other friends as like his "support system or security blanket" what might call you.
    With them trying to rescue Frankie, who plays the princess and the "evil" Mr Harriman as the villian. As Mac & Harriman have an adversial relationship of course.
    This allows the viewers to allow their imaginations to run wild.
  • The first new eppie after a summer's wait is always good!

    Our silly little imaginary friend Blooregard has broken his bestest buddy Mac's Game Guy, and he has no idea how to tell Mac what happened. So he comes up with this awesome story about the "Bloo Superdude" and the "Magic Potato", aka the Game Guy. Bloo dramatizes the whole story and tells it in action movie and comic book style. Mac just loves the story, and can't wait to hear more. The Bloo Superdude is a super awesome action hero who, to make a long story short, is dedicated to keep the Magic Potato out of the hands of evil. And the only way it can be certain to stay out of evil hands, he must destroy it. In the end Mac learnes what the story really meant. More violence than I personally prefer, but funny episode and action packed, full of fun!
  • This was probably the kind of episode that would look better as a short comic than as a full on episode.

    This is probably something that happens in most series nowadays. The first season or two tends to test the waters on how "out there" they can get without being too weird. But as time grows by, and the fan bases increase, that train of thought is immediately tossed out the window, replaced with the new idea that the more "out there" it is, the more "cutting edge" it will seem. But it's not cutting edge when the series is deviating from what it's core originally was. This entire episode just seemed like it could have been done in any other series because it doesn't really relate to imaginary friends in the least except for the fact that it's being narrated by one. And when an episode's degenerated to the point that there's just a generic (or in this case completely random) story with the series' characters just pasted in there with no real personal touch, then it just doesn't seem like the series anymore.

    Don't get me wrong, though. I think these kinds of "random episodes" could be pulled off (like when Mac and Bloo are making a movie in season three) if given some kind of variety to it. Heck, even some older shows, like Winnie the Pooh, were able to pull off the occasional random episode. I'm not exactly sure what makes these random episodes god or not, but I have a feeling that a big part of it is related to making the "story" (if you could even call it that) personal in the sense that if another show were to have a similar episode, you wouldn't really tell (or care) because they added their own little twist to make the story "their own," too.

    The entire episode is basically being supported by Bloo's outlandish story, which is enjoyable enough, since I could imagine Bloo as being the type of person (er... imaginary friend) to ramble on about such a thing. But after ten minutes or so, I was beginning to expect something more than rambling to go on, with Mac stupidly being hooked on to every word Bloo says. And after all of that is said and done, and Frankie walks in to actually make some sense of the story, I just feel let down, since so much of Bloo's story could have been chopped down. It's not like any of his story was actually building up to something. It just goes on and on and on...

    Bloo rambling for a minute or two in an episode is swell and all, but his rambling is confined to a couple of minutes for a reason.
  • very funny

  • Bloo entertains Mac with a bizarre story of his own creation.

    9.2
    After three long months, along with a disappointing episode, "Bloo Superdude" was a major improvement, and with its surprising homages and good humor, this was worth the wait for every Foster's fan.

    The episode simply began with Bloo telling his friend Mac a tale, featuring the cast of Foster's in entirely different positions, with Bloo being the title character. He, along with a village boy, a space alien and a wise character, bands together to take a space crystal from the villanious Mr. Herriman, and the story behind this is eventually revealed.

    With good writings, the characters being themselves and many homages to spot, this a worthy episode meant to be seen.
