        Jeff: (waking him up) Anthony, Anthony, wake up!
        Murray: You were having a bad dream, Anthony.
        Anthony: It was a terrible dream, Murray. It made my tummy hurt.
        Greg: I don't think it was the dream that upset your stomach.
        Anthony: I only ate it so Dorothy wouldn't be tempted to eat too much.
        Greg: You ate the whole thing! I don't think you're much of a superhero, Anthony.
        Anthony: Maybe you're right but I've learned my lesson. It's not too good to eat too much of (to Dorothy) What kind of cake was that?
        Dorothy: Rose petal cream cake.
        Anthony: Rose petal cream cake. (opens jaw) You mean that cake was made out of roses?!?
        Dorothy: My favorite food.
        (Anthony groans sadly while the others all laugh.)

      • Murray: (distributing peas one at a time) Eight for me and nine…
        Greg: (sadly) Forget it, Murray. I'm not hungry anymore. The food's gone gold.
        Anthony: (as Foodman) Let me check it for you. (tastes peas with a spoon) Correct, Greg. The food is cold. (puts the spoon down while Greg becomes stunned) I suggest: reheating.
        Murray: Now look what's happened. I'll have to start again.
        Greg: Oh, I can't stand this! I'm off to my room. (stands up and leaves)
        Murray: But Greg? Greg? (leaves after him)
        Anthony: (as Foodman) Being a superhero is tough work. It makes me hungry, too. (takes Dorothy's cake) I'll be doing Dorothy a favor. If I eat this, then she won't be tempted.

        (Fruit Salad song humming in background)
        Anthony: That's right. Foodman. Able to eat tall sandwiches with a single bite. Faster to a table than a speeding train. I'm Foodman. The hungry hero.
        Narrator: Will Foodman save the day? Do The Wiggles need saving? If not, can he save himself?

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Anthony transforms into Foodman by spinning around. This is characteristic of how Diane Prince transforms in the Wonder Woman TV series.

      • Anthony's Foodman statement is similar to the introduction to the Superman TV show.

        Superman opener:
        Faster than a speeding bullet.
        More powerful than a locomotive.
        Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
        It's a bird, it's a plane, it's superman!

        Foodman statement:
        Able to eat tall sandwiches with a single bite.
        Faster to the table than a speeding train.

        Also the foodman costume consists of a red cape, blue tights and red trunks, and a bib size diamond with the initials FM.
