Title: Comics: Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends-Frankie's Evil Twin (sort of)
Post by: Thom_Serveaux on April 27, 2007, 03:24:42 PM
Yeah, those of you who have a secret crush on Madame Foster's grandaughter will absolutely love the current issue (#31) of "Cartoon Network Block Party".  A comic featuring various CN stars as part of the new 'Johnny DC' line of comics.  Just as Marvel had the one time 'Star Comics',  It's a shameless grab at the allowances of a significantly younger audience.  Anywhoo,  If you liked Foster's, or just Frankie, this is it!  The 'Evil Twin' story to end all 'Evil Twin' stories...  *ahem*  Okay, that a stretch, but still, if my guess is right it should give most of you at least a chuckle... *crosses fingers*++

Jesus, that little kid has a pretty damned deep misogynistic streak to pull something like that out of his subconscious.

That makes me wonder, what's the deal with Bloo?

I mean apparently, he's some kind of paragon of imaginary creatures, yet he's a self-serving, uninteresting, little azure globlet of bender-esque egocentrism. He makes sense as a "who took the cookies?" kind of blame-outlet and jungian shadow imaginary character, but not as a desirable person in physical form.

Anyway, yes, Frankie is the teenage heart-throb, especially when she's gorging on cookies.

Which begs the question of why the parents were so eager to have him get rid of her. The only thing I can think of is that maybe the mother wasn't worried about what her sonwas doing with 'frankie'. She was worried of what her husband might be doing.  The reasoning for this?  Simple really, I mean up until this show, I'd mostly seen 'imaginary friends' portrayed as not only 'imaginary', but also 'invisible'  or at least only visible to the kids that create them.  If they were going to break that 'rule'  then why not assume that the next to go is the 'rule' that only kids can create imaginary friends...

Wife: "Honey, just who is that in the shower?"

Husband: "Uhhh... it's Mike's imaginary friend..."

...

...

Wife: "really?"

...

Husband: "Uh yeah, why do you ask?"

Wife: "Oh no reason, just the fact that she left her underwear in our bed!"

Gotta love those animated redheads!

I think in addition to dropping the counter-frankie off the parents might want to take their sprog to an endocrinologist since he's evidently chock full o hormones a wee bit early.

Actually why are all the cartoon girls redheads?

I think this is the pertinent one:

Well, he's very different in the first episode than he becomes in the later episodes.  In the first episode, he's always very concerned about Mac, and feels quite a bit of separation anxiety when Mac leaves him at the home.  And we get the impression that he was always helping protect Mac from his older brother.  Which leads one to suspect that being at Foster's Home gradually changes him.  Since he's no longer with Mac 24 hours a day, and since he no longer has to worry about protecting him all the time, combined with the chaos that is Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, perhaps Bloo feels that he's entitled to be selfish and turn into a kid-friendly version of the Master Shake.

Well for one, bright red hair pops better with the other bright colors used in many cartoons. Also, redheads are hot:

But which came first I wonder if growing up with Daphne and Jessica makes an impression.

Something tells me redheads were hot long before animation was invented.

But lucky for us, as long as women feel the need to alter their appearance, there will be ample supplies of hair dye.

I had a boss who did that and then she'd proudly tell me how she made sure nobody found out it was dye.

Did you sue her for sexual harrassment?

Nah; it's only sexual harassment when the person's not cute.
Sigh, you Americans! ;)

Ah, that's why I haven't been sued yet. ;D
