Squeeze the Day (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends)
"Squeeze the Day" is the third episode in the fourth season of Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends.
Bloo wakes up to find the house completely deserted. With no Herriman or Frankie there to enforce the house rules, Mac and Bloo set out to cram as much fun and mischief into one day as they possibly can.
Why It Rocks
- The plot is very different and feels similar to the 1990 movie, "Home Alone" but with two instead of one, with Bloo waking up to find everyone in Foster's Home not there, and Mac saying to him that they can cram in lots of fun in 8 hours. The reason for Frankie, Mr Herriman and the others leaving Bloo behind when at the beach is justified due to the trouble he caused last time they were there.
- Some funny moments, such as Bloo slowly shouting "where is everybody?" at the top of his lungs, and his famous quote "it's hot in Topeka!", which he does when seeing the forecast for that country. Watch it for yourself. Plus, the montage of Mac & Bloo having fun on their own by doing lots of fun and wacky things.
- Some emotional moments as well, like when Bloo thought that Mac was dead and said about all the good times they had together after overeating.
- Bloo using eyebrow pencil to resemble an angry monster is pretty clever, along with him and Mac mashing some foods with others when eating and even using a picture of Madame Foster as a slide despite not working.
- "Something so great that we'll remember it for the rest of our lives!" - Mac to Bloo.
- A picture frame having a secret & hidden treasure map is quite impressive, and the montage of Mac and Bloo finding the treasure is fun to watch.
- Half-Decent Ending: Although Frankie banned everyone from the beach due to Wilt not bothering to relax and ruining everything, at least she said to Mac that it's his time to do the most awesome thing, and it ends with him and Bloo saying "it's hot in Topeka".
- Bloo was a bit of a jerk in some scenes, particularly when him and Mac were finding the treasure chest, but not as bad as usual.
- The "treasure" wasn't really anything special, it was just a bunch of toys & other junk from Uncle Pockets' collection.
- Half-Bad Ending: When Frankie and the others came home from the beach, she blamed Wilt for not even trying to relax and ruining their day at the beach when we never saw what exactly happened - and she then banned everyone from going to the beach ever again.
- It holds a rating of 7.9/10 on IMDB.
