The show Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is shown on Cartoon Network and was created by Craig McCracken. It premiered in 2003 as a three-part movie entitled House of Bloo's.
Craig McCracken got the inspiration for Foster's when he and his wife, Lauren Faust, who is also a regular writer for the show, adopted two dogs from a shelter. They wondered what life was like for the dogs before they were adopted.
Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is about the imaginary friends who live at Foster's, a home for abandoned imaginary friends.
Mac is the shy, creative, eight-year-old boy who created Bloo, his imaginary friend, when he was three. He came to Foster's for help when his mother thought that he was too old for Bloo. Although Foster's is a home for abandoned imaginary friends who are all up for adoption, Mac managed to arrange with Madame Foster, the founder of Foster's, and her imaginary friend Mr. Herriman that as long as he came to see Bloo everyday at three o' clock, Bloo would not be put up for adoption. Mac is voiced by Sean Marquette. His birthdate is 7/11/95.
Frances "Frankie" Foster is the home's caretaker, cooking and cleaning up after all the friends and humans. She gets stressed out but takes it in stride. In episodes such as "Frankie My Dear" and "Setting a President", it is hinted that she appears to be 22 years old and in her early adult years. According to the episode, "Bus the Two of Us", her driver's license states she is 5'8" ft tall, weighs 127 pounds, has green eyes, and was born on July 25, 1984. Veteran voice actress Grey DeLisle provides her voice. She is a big sister to all imaginary friends.
Madame Foster is the kooky yet colorful founder of the home. Candi Milo does her voice.
Goo Goo GaGa is an African-American young girl who was once banished for creating too many imaginary friends willy nilly, but has since controlled her creations. Grey DeLisle voices this hyperactive young girl.
Blooregard Q. Kazoo (or Bloo for short) is Mac's imaginary friend. He is blue in color and has been described by McCracken as "a thumb with a smiley face." His original design was a walking, talking security blanket, but later was drawn as more of a blob. His arms are usually hidden but he can move them at will. He has a knack for getting himself and his friends into trouble. As the series progressed, Bloo's character became more destructive and troublesome. In the episode "Cuckoo for Coco Cards" Bloo is described on the back of a Coco card as being a "Big Fat Insensitive Jerkface." As described, his character is usually selfish and egocentric. He is also very childish and vain and will go to great lengths to prove he is right or to get his own way. Keith Ferguson is the voice of the mischevious blue blob.
Wilt is one of the oldest resident of the Foster's home, as well as the tallest. He is extremely polite, and many of the other characters will often exploit this and make use of him, especially Bloo. He loves playing basketball, and it was revealed in "Good Wilt Hunting" that he was created by a short kid to help him play basketball better who would become an international star. Phil LaMarr does his voice.
Eduardo is a huge purple imaginary friend with a threatening appearance but who is actually a huge scaredy-cat. He was created by a little girl to protect her (and eventually help her overcome her own fears); Eduardo's creator, Nina Valderosa, grew up to be a police officer, as seen in "Good Wilt Hunting." Comedian and voice actor Tom Kenny provides the voice.
Coco is a sanity challenged bird-airplane-plant thing created by a young child who was lost on a deserted island with the head of a palm tree, the beak of the raft the child sailed on, the body of the airplane that was crashed at sea and the sunburned feet that said child had until she was discovered by two nerds named Douglas and Adam. Coco has the ability to lay eggs like those seen in chicken vending machines that range from good (money) to unusual (auto parts) on the spur of the moment. Her verbal and written means of communication is "Coco," with Candi Milo doing her voice.
Mr. Herriman is the manager of the home. A tall, grey animorhic bunny akin to the one seen in the play and movie Harvey, he a stuffy, out of touch Edwardian personage was created by Madame Foster still thinks the internet is controlled by spider webs and computer files are in drawers. Tom Kane voices this character.
Cheese is a lactose intolerant imaginary friend that has been known to be mentally challenged that likes "chocolate milk" as well as the ability to decipher the alarm system at Foster's. This yellow friend who was created by a girl named Louise who lives next door to Mac is voiced by Candi Milo.
Jackie Khones is a small, green one-eyed stick figure with a deep voice who has made increasing frequent appearances since Season Three. The deep voiced character is played by Phil LaMarr.
