For the baskets in "Lofty", see Nail Baskets.
Uh oh, look! X is about to lose grip of his beloved baskets!

Baskets are brown, wooden, bowl-shaped baskets that carry objects and are often floating in the air with a propeller.


In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", the baskets were redesigned with a propeller instead of a balloon. The contest was to retrieve them and then return the baskets to X, who owned them. Most of the baskets remain near X in the air, but one of them (for unexplained reasons) flies into the desert, then The World's Largest Oven, and then inside a pool of lava (possibly the Volcano). This one is followed by Bleh, leading to the death of everyone in the team aside from Saw (who got her handle burnt off) and Dora. Near the end of the episode, X puts on his baskets and the propellers spin him around. He screams as he is suspended in the air.

They were seen again in "Four Goes Too Far", when Loser had an idea of putting a basket (X hiding inside, in the flashback of episode 9) over The Losers! to prevent them from getting infected with the Twinkle from the challenge. However, on the last seconds of the challenge, Bell broke the basket and Clock got infected, causing his team to "fittingly" lose.

They were used once again in "This Episode Is About Basketball" for makeshift basketball baskets in X's first time hosting a challenge. One of them ended up being broken by Snowball.


  • In "Four Goes Too Far", it is shown that the baskets are much bigger on the inside than the outside, much like the Tardis from the British sci-fi television series, Doctor Who.
  • "This Episode Is About Basketball" is the third overall episode in the BFDI series where baskets were needed to complete a challenge.
  • It is strange that baskets can easily be broken from just 3 hits from Bell (BFB 6) even though they are able to withstand being in lava (BFB 1).
