foster's home for imaginary friends
Today's site of the day belongs to my current favorite cartoon, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Cartoons pretty much sucked for many years until Cartoon Network arrived to save the day. This is one of those shows that people of all ages can appreciate. The premise is simple: What happens to kid's imaginary friends once the kids are too grown up for them anymore? They go to Foster's, a foster home for, yep, that's right, imaginary friends, where they can be adopted by a new kid. Madame Foster is the loveable old lady who started Foster's, and her own imaginary friend, Mr. Herriman (an imaginary rabbit in a suit with a monacle and British accent), is in charge of the house. Most of the episodes revolve around Mac who visits his imaginary friend Bloo (a nickname for Blooregard Q. Kazoo) at Foster's since his mother won't let Mac keep Bloo at their house because Bloo constantly gets into all kinds of mischief. The background drawings in the cartoon are detailed and whimsical. The theme music is fun (although, it reminds me of the theme from The Smurfs). The storylines are cute, clever, and often hilarious. I highly recommend a visit to Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.
