The entire cast of the 80s cartoon Foofur!
“Foofur” may sound like the name of a kink you’d see on a trick’s Grindr profile that you’d have to look up on Urban Dictionary and it may be, but it’s also the name of a short-lived cartoon from 1986. Everybody I ask about Foofur doesn’t remember it. They think it’s a cutesy name for furry mold on food. Even my sister doesn’t remember this show and I watched it with her. I know, I should go on Maury with her to see if we’re really biologically related, because how can she not hold onto extremely important information like watching some weird cartoon in the middle of the 80s?
Foofur was kind of like a new money Heathcliff but with mostly dogs instead of pussies. After Foofur’s rich human leaves him a big house and a fortune, he springs his animal friends from a dog catcher’s van and moves them in. Foofur (he’s the “not amused” big blue ho behind that hipster with a beautiful ginger wave of hair on his head) only lasted for 2 seasons and most of the episodes were about he and his friends trying to keep evil whores, like some woman named Mrs. Escrow, from taking the estate.
The plot was pretty simple and Foofur and his hos looked like Hanna-Barbera b-sides, but the theme song was a musical masterpiece.
I listened to this the other day and I’ve been singing it ever since like the grown-up I am. If RiRi really wants to be forward with her music, she’d do a cover of this classic.
