"The Sweet Stench of Success" is the 9th episode in Season 2 of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, it is based around Bloo.
In the episode, Bloo sees that Eduardo is on TV, and becomes jealous. Bloo goes to the news office and pretends to be a sick friend up for adoption. After returning home, Frankie and the others are mad at Bloo for faking he lived in the cold streets. The doorbell rings, and Bloo goes to answer, where Kip Snip, a Hollywood agent, awaits to give him the offer to be a star attraction. Bloo goes with Kip in his limo, and becomes a star after advertising for various Deo-brand Deodorant commercials and advertisements.
After hours of work, Bloo sets off to go home, when Kip stops him to explain that actors don't get to go home. Kip makes Bloo sleep in a cage and Bloo cannot contact Mac. Bloo tells Kip the next morning that he quits, and Kip explains (in a mean way) that the contract Bloo signed wasn't an acting contract: it was adoption forms, so Kip is now Bloo's guardian.
Mac thinks Bloo does not want him anymore, until one day, Bloo sends a secret message in morse code across TV, saying "Help me! Help me! Help me, Mac!" Mac, Wilt, Ed, and Coco then set out to the TV station and rescue Bloo from Kip. In the end, the gang rescues Bloo and Kip gets arrested and sent to prison for false advertising, as it's revealed that Deo-brand deodorant doesn't actually make you smell any better--in fact, it actually makes you smell worse!
The episode ends with Eduardo singing about potatoes.
- One of the flashbacks Mac and Bloo have is of Bloo pouncing on Mac in House of Bloo's (after Mac tells Bloo he can stay at Foster's).
- Kip Snip says he's a Hollywood producer, but the Hollywood sign in the background at the studio reads "Hokeywood."
- Ed's line "This spud's for you", at the end of the episode finishing his song about potatoes, is likely a parody of Budweiser Beer's classic tagline "This Bud's for you".
