"Bad Dare Day" is the 76th episode of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. This episode aired on May 3rd, 2009 on Cartoon Network.


A little dare between Mac and Bloo turns into a huge daring competition between the house members once Madame Foster gets involved. Mac is dared to tell Frankie that he loves her by Bloo, which makes him really upset and give other friends insane dares.

Mac also dares Bloo to burn all his paddle balls, which makes Bloo mad at Mac. In the finals, Mac is dared to pretend to be Bloo. Since Mac's mad, he mocks him. Bloo does the same, then they realize that they hurt each other's feelings and apologize. Bloo then tells Mac it's not a big deal that he told Frankie he loves her in front of everyone since the world already knows, because Bloo posted it on the Foster's blog, which makes Mac angry at Bloo again.

The episode ends with Mac violently attacking Bloo.

  • Everyone laughs in amusement when Bloo and Mac mock each other, either perhaps because they feel it's true or they thought it was just sarcastic kidding.
  • Frankie seems hurt when the friends laugh and when Mac panics and takes back his "I love you". It's also unknown why she wasn't participating in the dares since she enjoys these sorts of things as much as the other residents of Foster's (perhaps she felt left out, too).
  • Bloo has names for all of his paddleballs.
  • Mr. Herriman is mentioned and seen, but has no dialogue.
  • Madame Foster doesn't let anyone touch her dentures, but when Mac explained the situation, it seemed at first that Madame Foster was going to scold the house, but she instead organized a daring contest.

  • When Mac is searching Madame Foster's room for her gold-plated dentures, a photo of Uncle Pockets can be seen.


Mac: (to Frankie) I... I like... I-I mean love, um... you.

Frankie: (looks surprised, and then smiles) Oh, Mac, that's so sweet.
