Episode Summary

EDIT
Mac and Bloo are using Frankie's digital camera to make video interviews for the new Foster's website, when they stumble upon Mr. Herriman indulging Madame Foster's whims and doing a little dance for her. Much to Mac's chagrin, not only do Bloo and Frankie show the embarrassing footage to almost everyone in the house, but Bloo uploads the film to the Internet. It won't be long before Mr. Herriman discovers he's become the latest Internet fad, and you can bet he won't be happy!moreless

    This episode has great storyboard.
  • I think watching the episode was kinda fun, but it was at an average state.

    Frankie wanted to interview the friends for her website. Unfortunately, Mr. Herriman wanted her to do another task. So MAc and Bloo had to do it for her. Just as they were about to interview Madame Foster, they saw her with Mr. Herriman, with them taking no notice however. Bloo wanted to show the footage to Frankie, who recently went back to her computer for work. The footage was Mr. Herriman singing his ditty to Madame Foster. She wanted him to do it since she was little. Frankie thought it was hallarious, and so did the other friends. Mac vetoed it, however, and wanted Frankie to erase the footage. After interviewing Madame Foster, he overhears Fluffer Nutter and Jackie Khones talking about Mr. Herriman's footage. After Mac tells Frankie eventually that Mr. Herriman is gonna make her life miserable, Frankie destroys the written CDs that contain copies of the footage. Bloo, however, sent a copy online without either of them noticing, and the next day, things went haywire when Mac tells her about the footage around town. Mr. Herriman eventually finds out about it, and wanted vengeance on Mac and Bloo. Then, everything changed when a little girl, and everyone else adored Mr. Herriman for his footage. Well, mostly everything. Frankie was angry at Bloo for showing the footage online. At the end, Mr. Herriman wanted to show everyone an updated version of his footage, and mostly everyone was bored of watching it and walked away. Madame Foster, however, loves it.moreless
  • Silly in a positive way! :)

    You gotta love Mr. Herriman from here on out after watching this episode. It is on that I will cherish for a long time as it made me laugh and the song that he sung would be one that you can sing to your daughter if you want to be silly. I love it so much that I have the lyrics on Facebook! The great thing about it is that though he's strict, we see that he does have a good heart to many children that need a friend. Yes, everyone has some silly side to show, and for him being the Funny Bunny made Foster's one of the best shows Craig McCraken has ever made.moreless

    • (The scene of Foster's Home shaking)
      Mr. Herriman: WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIIIIISS!?!?!? WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS!?!?!?

    • Frankie: (To Bloo) And if I ever touch my computer again...
      Mr. Herriman: (Clears throat) Well, well. I do believe this is the smallest house meeting we've ever had, due to all of the recent adoptions, thanks to yours truly... (Everyone moans) I have called this meeting, if you will, to declare, present and announcilly... (Residents maon again) that because my performance went over so well, and resulted in so many adoptions, I have produced a new, more modern updated version for the Foster's spider web.
      Frankie: Website! Sheesh.
      Mr Herriman: Yes, of course (Turns on the television and on the updated video for the web site) My name is Mr. Herriman, and I'm here to say: A hip, hop, a hip hip hop
      I rip and I rap and I just can't stop
      I have big feet and ears that flop
      To help your mom, you can sweep and mop.
      (Later on, after everyone leaves)
      A hip, hop, a hip hip hop
      In the winter we see the temprature drop
      Horse's feet go clippity-clop
      Its quite rude to make bubblegum pop!

  • NOTES (15)

    • The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation - Storyboard.

    • Fast Forward: 1) Remember Frankie's computer? Look for it in "Bye Bye Nerdy" as Bloo goes out to save Mac. 2) Two examples of "I (heart) FB" merchandise are found as Mac wears tighty whities emblazened with the phrase in "I Only Have Surprise For You" going all Rambo, and a cap worn by Bloo during spunky reporter Erin Peterson's investigation in "The Big Cheese." 3) Another eBay spoof called "schmeBay" is shown in "One False Movie." 4) The main subject would be later be found to have over 17 million hits in "Bloo Tube".

    • Kids' WB! airdate: Originally scheduled to air on August 20, 2005, but the network changed its schedule early that week to a second episode of Pokemon.

    • This is the first full-length episode to have three seven-to-eight minute segments instead of two eleven-minute segments.

    • Animation Studio: Cartoon Network Studios.

    • Imaginary Friend Debut: Bloppy Pants, Cy.

      Human Debut: Earl the Delivery Guy.

    • Credits: Mac and Bloo on a sepia screen to a silent movie-version of the show's theme to make it look old. During the credits, the following "cards" appear:
      + "Mr. Herriman presents..."
      + "The Two Goofballs..." (Mac and Bloo)
      + "In 'Silly Shanagans'".
      + Footage shot by Mr. Herriman, followed by "My, are we not the laughing stocks?" The footage is shown again, followed by "Indeed."
      + Final title card reads "The End."

    • Title Card Sound: Everyone snickering.

    • Running Gag: After everyone sees Funny Bunny, they start saying "illy" and "itty" after most sentences.

    • Since Mr. Herriman is Madame Foster's friend, this episode reveals how old they both are. For example when he hears that it's on the "file," he goes in the file cabinet.

    • Duchess makes a cameo in this episode as her body is shown walking by when Mac and Bloo are hiding after filming the footage.

    • When Mr. Herriman starts filming Mac and Bloo, he's using a silent film camera that has a set frame, even though in most silent films, only words would have a frame around it, not the scenes.

    • The sound made after the file is "deleted" and while Bloo is on the computer checking the eBunny website is the same sound made by a standard PC when a download is finished or an error message appears.

    • Look Hard: 1) Look carefully -- but quickly -- at the eBun website and you'll see that all items are available for "same day shipping." A cute bit of continuity in the episode, since the t-shirts, hats, etc. were being worn the next day when Mac stops by after school. Also, there are snow tires for sale on the site. 2) The computer Frankie uses is a "Dull" branded computer, a parody of Dell computers. 3) In Mr. Herriman's closet are two games, "Strangled" (a spoof of Scrabble) and "Bankrupt" (parodying Monopoly).

    • When Bloo updates the website, fans add backgrounds and sounds to make the clips funnier.

  • ALLUSIONS (7)

    • After Frankie gets the Funny Bunny CDs from the wardrobe, the baseball disappears.

    • n/a: Funny Flakes
      In the pile of 'Funny Bunny' merchandise on Frankie's bed, a box of cereal called Funny Flakes can be seen. This is a parody of the cereal Frosted Flakes.

    • This episode is a big parody of the famous Star Wars Kid, who was videotaped swinging a crutch around in front of a video camera. The video was put up online and millions of people edited it into funny things.

    • n/a: Bunny Gone Wild
      Looking at all the 'Funny Bunny' memorabilia Frankie dumps on the bed, you can quickly glance and see a Bunny Gone Wild tape on the left. It is most likely a parody of those Girls Gone Wild tapes. Thankfully, we don't see what the tape contains, but you can just make out two censor bars over Herriman's chest.

    • n/a: eBun
      The 'eBun' website is a parody of the 'eBay' auction site right down to the same colors in the logo.

    • n/a: Lord of the Bunnies / Space Bunny
      One of the different dances shown is Lord of the Bunnies, a hilarious parody of Lord of the Rings. Also, look hard. When Bloo moves the mouse across the screen, you can see Space Bunny, probably a parody of Star Wars.

    • Episode Title: World Wide Wabbit
      Wabbit it the way that Elmer Fudd from Looney Tunes says "rabbit." The way the title states it may be referring to him. The title also refers to the World Wide Web.
