Cuckoo for Coco Cards (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends)
"Cuckoo for Coco Cards" is the fourteenth episode in the third season of Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends.
When Mac takes his classmates on a field trip to Foster's, everybody loves Coco, and Bloo wants all of the attention. After Coco lays eggs with imaginary friend trading cards, all of the friends start trading and collecting the cards. Bloo becomes obsessed and tries to be the first to collect them all.
Why It Deserves a Special Imaginary Friend Trading Card
- The start was very nice, as it has Mac taking his classmates on a field trip to Foster's Home (where he likes to visit) to show them all the different imaginary friends and room, with Coco being the tour guide.
- The way the classmates and Coco march down the stairs & imitating Coco's catchphrase is very fun and entertaining to watch.
- Coco laying eggs containing trading cards of imaginary friends is very impressive (especially the ones in dark green), and were inspired by the sports, Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh! trading cards.
- "Bloo, you're such a baby. What are you gonna do, whine until people give you cards?" - Mac's perfect response to how immature Bloo is here, and the personality on his card says "big insensitive jerkface".
- Although he's still immature and unlikable here, Bloo does do a few chores around the house to somewhat repay the favor.
- Watching Eduardo overcoming some of his fears is nice to see his maturity.
- Good Ending: Bloo finally feels remorse for acting like a big insensitive jerk throughout the entire episode, and so, he burns all the trading cards he was willing to collect and apologizes to Coco, then Coco gives him a Bloo bobblehead and he shows everyone and they have bobbleheads of him, too along with the other imaginary friends.
- Bloo is still a selfish and mean-spirited jerk here, as he grows jealous over all of Mac's classmates loving Coco and imitating her iconic catchphrase, which causes him to throw eggs at them for no reason other than petty jealousy, scaring the kids and running away from Foster's. Then, he doesn't change his mind or feel remorse at all when Mac and Coco tell him off until the end and when trying to "apologize" to Coco the first time, he just accepts the apology rather than giving it to Coco.
- And don't even get us started on him saying "come on!" to Mac and the rest of the people at Foster's over and over again in order to collect everyone's trading cards around the home - which can get on your very last nerves and might make you wish you were deaf. Click here for evidence!
- The only gross-out bit was when Bloo used some gum he got from the kitchen table to make some "sandwiches" to give to a chimp in order to get rare trading cards.
- It holds a rating of 7.8/10 on IMDB.
