Goo is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated television series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, voiced by Grey DeLisle. She's extremely talkative, odd, and obnoxious, but at the same time, incredibly imaginative, energetic, lively, enthusiastic, playful, creative, fun-loving, and nice.
Goo is an African-American girl with black hair tied in three braids, one tied with a pink hair tie/hair clip with a red heart on it, another tied with what seems to be a normal, yellow hairtie and the lowerbraid tied down with a paper clip. She has freckles between her eyes and a gap between her teeth. She wears a rainbow sleeved shirt, blue short overalls and yellow cowgirl boots.
The fast-talking Goo Goo Ga Ga (called Goo for short and referred by her full name only in her first appearance Go Goo Go) has a hyperactive imagination, and is always seen wearing her hair in three braids, with a rainbow shirt, overalls and yellow cowboy boots. Whenever she went near Foster's, she became over-stimulated and created scores of new imaginary friends. She was, therefore, banned from the house indefinitely. Her name is a reference to the stereotypical sound that a baby makes. Her parents, who don't believe in "stifling her creative mind," allowed her to pick her own name as an infant so when baby Goo said "Goo Goo Ga Ga" her parents decided that those "words" must be her name. Her parents also have to drop by at Foster's to leave at least twelve of Goo's imaginary friends yet they refuse to make her stop for the aformentioned reason.
Unaware of the rule, Mac brought her inside after an incident involving an eight-man toboggan stuck in a tree that Bloo needed (even though it was the middle of June, it was a long story that he didn't feel like telling), which broke the strap on his backpack. In any case, after seeing Bloo, she imagined up a hoarde of similar versions, all with one extra feature or another. After Bloo let her in the next day, Frankie and Mr. Herriman got the mistaken impression that Mac let her in (and that he was in love with her, much to his growing annoyance/anger).
After Goo filled the house with so many friends that it became unlivable, Frankie and Mr. Herriman said that Mac shouldn't come to Foster's anymore, probably ever, because they believed Mac was responsible for Goo always going there. Because of this, Mac finally snapped and let it out on her saying that he doesn't like her and tells her that she's annoying, weird and talks too much and too fast, because she's a chatterbox and that everyone thinks/knows she is a nuisance and want her to just go home. Goo began to cry as Mac can see her sad face already feeling bad right away and she drops the box with his backpack in front of him and followed Goo to the bedroom where Bloo sleeps after Mac yelled at her. Goo then revealed that the reason she created imaginary friends all the time is because she was lonely and the other kids won't play with her since they find her to be too weird. Mac told her that imaginary friends are real friends and that they love her for who she is. He also told her to stop imagining so many friends in order to get to know the ones she already created. After which, he apologized for hurting her feelings and tells her that if she's not too mad, he wants to be her friend, too, to which she gladly accepts From then on, she learned to control her imagination and was welcome at Foster's (and Mac was allowed to visit Foster's again).
Though she has committed herself to not make any more imaginary friends, she still sometimes does so accidentally or to sometimes help with something, and has devoted herself in making sure her scores of imagined friends have a place to live. Since her debut, Goo has become a recurring character on the series.
Goo might actually be the most powerful human in the Foster's universe. Her extreme and unbridled imagination can allow her to create any imaginary friend to suit her desire, from several friends to help create a paper mashay pony, to an out of control living car jack. She could practically create an entire army at a whim.

Big Fat Awesome House Party
Since September 2006, Goo has been a regular in the interactive Foster's game Big Fat Awesome House Party, as she creates "buddies" that can be earned in the mini-games or by doing certain chores.
- Goo appeared briefly in The Grim Adventures of the KND, the crossover episode with Codename: Kids Next Door and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, appearing as one of the characters the Delightful Reaper assimilated. She along with Mac were two of the kids to pop out of the recently defeated Delightful Reaper, after Grim and Numbuh 1 destroyed it and saved the world from it. This reveals she and Mac gotten assimilated into it, and could prove that many of the locations each Cartoon Network show takes place in including Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, seem to all be in the exact same world, which could prove each of the Cartoon Network shows are connected together.
- Goo bears some similarities to Mac with both having few friends outside of Foster's, neither is allowed to have imaginary friends and both are the only two human characters that are children to visit Foster's regularly.
- Goo only has a cameo in one short.

- She along with Cheese, Didn't Appear in any 2008 Episodes.

- Likes imagination.
- Is NOT Mac's girlfriend.
- Gave Mac a new backpack.
