At CartoonNetwork.com, It�s Cool to Have an Imaginary Friend: Year-Long Interactive Game for Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends Launches May 15

Big Fat Awesome House Party Allows Players to Create Their Own Imaginary Friend and Join in the Adventure with Their Favorite Show Characters

Blooregard Q. Kazoo is throwing a Big Fat Awesome House Party and everyone's invited! For the first time, fans of Cartoon Network�s popular original series Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends have the chance to create their very own imaginary friend and join the household with Bloo and the gang.

On May 15, CartoonNetwork.com will launch Big Fat Awesome House Party, a free year-long interactive game that allows players to immerse themselves in the hit series by creating their very own imaginary friend. Throughout the year, the game will encourage players to explore the ever-changing adventures with their new imaginary friend, play mini-games, collect upgrades, and take part in every aspect of life at Madame Foster�s famous house.

�Big Fat Awesome House Party is our most ambitious game to date and underscores Cartoon Network New Media�s commitment to providing innovative, high-quality games for our fans,� stated Paul Condolora, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Cartoon Network New Media. �The Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends game allows us to continue the storylines of the popular quirky characters and involve the series� passionate fans in a fun and interactive environment.�

Big Fat Awesome House Party will roll out new levels, additional games and exciting new features throughout the year and into 2007, making it a truly immersive experience for fans. First, players can choose from more than 900,000 possible combinations of shapes, colors and faces to create their own imaginary friend, who is then placed inside Madame Foster�s virtual house.

Once there, players must earn their keep in the house by performing a daily list of duties. Players can also complete favors for characters they meet along the way, who will in turn lend a hand with the player's duties. Once players complete certain tasks, they may go an adventure with Bloo, unlock and play mini-games and earn collectibles for their character by completing adventures. At least two mini-games will be added with the completion of each phase and players will have the ability to access all previous levels and mini-games.

This summer, Big Fat Awesome House Party will take part in a special event tied to brand new episodes of Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends. All players who have created friends in the game will have the chance to see their avatar appear in one of the new episodes airing this summer.

Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends, created by Craig McCracken, airs on Cartoon Network on Friday evenings at 7 p.m. (ET, PT). In the series Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends, the shy Mac has the perfect alter ego in his imaginary friend Blooregard Q. Kazoo. Bloo is the impulsive and brash creature who lives at Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends, a haven for wayward imaginary friends like Wilt, Eduardo, Coco and others who have been separated from the kids who invented them. One of Cartoon Network�s top rated original series, Foster�s Home for Imaginary Friends is now in its fourth season and has also been greenlit for a fifth season.
