Show Summary

The Fairly OddParents is a totally out-of-this-world cartoon about a 10-year old boy named Timmy whose life isn't exactly normal. The Fairly OddParents has been shown from three different channels throughout the world: Jetix, the Disney Channel, and on Nickelodeon. Being bossed around by his bossy babysitter, Timmy can't stand it anymore, so his Fairy Godparents are there to help. His Fairy Godparents go by the name of Cosmo, Wanda, and baby poof who grant Timmy's wishes. Of course, these fairies aren't exactly geniuses, especially Cosmo. Watch their wacky adventures you'll wish for more! Like fellow Nicktoon SpongeBob SquarePants, the show has become hugely popular and has a large, devoted fan base encompassing all age groups. Character Guide: Timmy Turner - Timmy, an average 10-year-old boy, was miserable because of his dimwit parents and Vicky, his evil babysitter. One day, he was playing with a magic 8-ball and a married fairy couple named Cosmo and Wanda appeared. When they became Timmy's fairy godparents, his misery ended. Cosmo Wanda - Cosmo and Wanda are the married couple of fairy godparents that are assigned to Timmy Turner. They are several thousand years old, and have had many, many fairy godchildren. They grant wishes to Timmy so that he isn't miserable anymore. Poof - Poof is the only natural child of Cosmo and Wanda and is Timmy's fairy godbrother. He was born in the episode "Fairly Odd Baby", and has since become a regular character on the show. He is way too young to grant wishes, but depending on his emotions, magical things happen. And sometimes, when Timmy grants a wish, he gets the wish wrong. Vicky - Vicky is an evil 16-year-old babysitter who constantly tortures Timmy and other kids. Her favorite things are money, torturing children, and watching TV. Denzel Q. Crocker - Mr. Crocker is Timmy's fairy-obsessed schoolteacher. He is also one of Timmy's arch-enemies. He strongly suspects that Timmy has fairy godparents, though when he tells people he believes in fairies, they think that he's crazy. Chester McBadbat - Chester is one of Timmy's best friends. He has braces on his teeth, which he once used to help Timmy win a contest. He lives in a run-down trailer with his dad, who wears a paper bag over his head because of the humiliation he faced as a lousy baseball player. A.J. - A.J., an African American, is Timmy's other best friend. He is the genius in Timmy's class, and also has a secret lab. Consequently, he sometimes gets jealous when someone else wins first place in a contest. A.J., like his dad, likes to invent things. Theme Song: Chorus: Timmy is an average kid that no one understands. Mom and Dad and Vicky always giving him commands. Vicky: Bed, twerp! Chorus: But doom and gloom up in his room is broken instantly, by his magic little fish who grant his every wish, 'cause in reality, they are his odd parents, fairly odd parents. Wanda: Wands and wings! Cosmo: Floaty crowny things! Chorus: Odd parents, fairly odd parents. Really mod, pea pod, buff bod, hot rod. Timmy: Obtuse, rubber goose, green moose, guava juice, giant snake, birthday cake, large fry, chocolate shake! Chorus: Odd parents, fairly odd parents. It flips your lid when you are a kid with fairly odd parents. Vicky: Yeah, right! Chorus: *Bop!* The series won 3 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Individual in Animation - character designer: Shelf Life, storyboard: Dadbracadbra and Outstanding Sound Mixing - Live Action and Animation.

  • It's a good show.

    7.5
    The older episodes were just LEGENDS. However, when they introduced us to Poof, the show went down. Poof is pretty much the closest relative to Caillou. In fact, he acts just like him. The repeats get kinda boring after a while of watching it. Most of the movies on this show are crappy, with an obvious exception of Channel Chasers, which was a great TV movie. Despite all these flaws, I still think this show is still good today.moreless
  • My Opinion

    2.0
    I think the show went down the toilet when they added Poof. If I were the writer I wouldn't have thrown in Poof and Sparky. I like seasons 1-5 more than seasons 6-?. Even the fan fiction (which I wouldn't recommend people not read it depending on your age. The reason why is because the wishes were more awesome and extreme. The show now : ( the show back then : ).moreless
  • Seriously. What happened to this show?

    5.5
    Anyone who had ever watched The Fairly OddParents almost 10 years ago knew how amazing this show was. It had good plots, it could be pretty action-packed at times, and it was funny. During that time, it probably could have gone on to become one of the greatest cartoons ever made. Unfortunately, I stress "could have".



    This show was supposed to end after season 5, but a year after they initially cancelled Fairly OddParents, The creators decided to bring it back. Well, lets just say what what we got wasn't that good. Once Fairly Oddbaby premiered I knew this show had jumped the shark. And it wasn't even the introduction of Poof. The humor that made this show so good just died with that movie, and the characters did a complete 180 from their initial personalities. Timmy became a spoiled brat, his parents went from caring about him, albeit part-time, to practically not giving a crap about him, and Cosmo became annoying rather than funny. The only people who have remained the same have been Vicky and Mr. Crocker, except Crocker has now gotten more screen time.



    The worst thing to come out of the newer seasons is without a doubt that embarassing live-action movie "Grow Up Timmy Turner". I still can't believe that Drake Bell went from Drake and Josh, one of the best shows Nick has ever created, to that abomination.



    The Fairly OddParents has unfortunately suffered the same fate as SpongeBob SquarePants. It was a great show that was brought back after being cancelled, and once that happened, the show went into the crapper. If I were rating the show before Poof came along it would be nearly perfect. But alas, the newer seasons have made the show kinda terrible.moreless

    What happened to this show? Ever since Poof came along in the show's revival this show went down into the pits.





    Season 1 = good (7/10)

    Season 2 = great (8/10)

    Season 3 = great (8/10)

    Season 4 = amazing (9/10)

    Season 5 = the best one (9.5/10)

    Season 6 = What's with the new baby? Oh well this show is still ok. (6.5/10)

    Season 7 = OK it seems this whole "baby stuff" wasn't such a good idea after all. (4.5/10)

    Season 8 = Yeah this show is definitely going down the toilet. (2/10)

    Season 9 = WHAT?! THERE'S A PET NOW?! I QUIT! I CAN'T PUT UP WITH THIS ANYMORE! (0/10)



    Years:



    THE OLD YEARS:

    2001 (Season 1) - Hey, this show is pretty good.

    2002 (Season 2) Woah, this is really good!

    2003 (Season 3) This show is awesome.

    2004 (Season 4 part 1) This show is still really good.

    2005 (Season 4 part 2;Season 5 part 1) I am so into this!

    2006 (Season 5 part 2) THIS SHOW ROCKS!!!

    2007 (Season 5 part 3) THIS SHOW STILL ROCKS!!!



    THE NEW YEARS:

    2008 (Season 6 part 1/REVIVAL) Was the new baby addition really necessary? Oh well I still like this show.



    2009 (Season 6 part 2;Season 7 part 1) OK I'm beginning to become uninterested in this show.



    2010 (Season 7 part 2) Yeah this isn't to my interests anymore. Get rid of the baby and I'll be a fan of the show again.



    2011 (Season 8 part 1) OK this is getting really bad now...



    2012 (Season 8 part 2) Yeah, this obviously isn't good...



    2013 (Season 9 part 1) WHAT?! WHY DD YOU ADD A PET?! A BABY WAS ENOUGH TO MAKE THIS SHOW GO DOWN TO THE PITS BUT NOW A PET?! AND A DOG AT THAT?! RIP Fairly Odd Parents. 2001-2012. OR SHOULD I SAY, RIP FAIRLY ODD PARENTS 2001-2007!!!





    And that's how slowly this show went from good to bad. I would give this show an 8 if only the first five seasons were there. But if it weren't for the revival seasons, this show wouldn't be so horrible. But unfortunately, it happened. So yeah this show has a 1. The 8 is for Seasons 1-5. The rest gets a 1. Finny, out.moreless
