Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is a show created by Craig McCracken, creator of The Powerpuff Girls started on August 13, 2004, and ended on May 22, 2009. McCracken ended the show because of its declining popularity. The show aired a week of brand new episodes from May 18-22, 2009 with the last episode gaining the most viewers that any episode of the series has ever obtained. The show won a few awards for animation, and clear demonstration for the return of Craig McCracken's works since the Powerpuff Girls.
This show was being started as Craig McCracken was ready to cancel The Powerpuff Girls. Craig McCracken had used the Powerpuff Girls in several ways for Foster's, most notably Mojo Jojo seen in the film House of Bloo's (Episode 1) as a "unimaginary friend", but we never saw Mojo Jojo's imagined copy ever again. Also, for the credits for "House of Bloo's", you can hear the Power Puff Girls theme while Bloo is watching TV in the top area on his bed. You can still watch this show on on demand. It is also on iTunes.
