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.

  • What happened?

    6.0
    The Fairly OddParents was once a great show. It has clever plots, interesting characters, and funny episodes all the way around. I'm not sure whether it was the introduction of Poof, or if it was something else, but the show has just lost its charm. Too much of the attention focuses on Timmy's Dad or Mr. Crocker. Whatever happened to characters such as Chester, Trixie, Tootie, for crying out loud, what about Vicky? She's still in the theme song as the main antagonist. And, of course, the characters have been dumbed down to all hell. Timmy got stupider, so did Cosmo and Timmy's Dad, and Wanda got extremely boring. Poof? I don't really know about him. Speaking of which, where is he? He hardly appears any more. Sparky. Don't even get me started on Sparky. He is annoying, irritating, disgusting, everything that is bad. And they keep using the same jokes over and over and over again every single episode! I'm not saying the show is TERRIBLE, it still has decent plotlines, okay characters, and mildly amusing episodes, but I'm just saying that the show in general has gone rolling down the mountain of good. That's all I have to say. 6/10.moreless
  • I have a wish to make, I wish this was cancelled long ago

    1.0
    This has got to be one of the most vapid shows today and well past its prime. It started off as charming, funny, and overall entertaining but now it depends on overused plots, jokes, and characters. Overall it is a rotten pain to watch and even seems to send the message that stuff like child neglect and abuse is amusing. Humorous is one of the last thing to describe it. It started off with Timmy making well mannered but short sighted wishes that had hilarious results to a total brat who really cares about himself. He deserves to lose his fairy godparents. Plus they added a baby who now takes up the bulk of the episodes and most recently added a dog that is no different. I could go on but others have done it before and better than me.







    I really wish Butch Hartman would realize that this show is annoying and repetitive with deserved abandonment. He should focus on something else like how to revise and renew Danny Phantom for that show still has loads of potential. I never was a fan of this show, but if I was just reviewing the first few seasons I would rate it from a 4-6 but the newest seasons, episodes, and characters caused me to rate it way lower. I regret that I can't give it a negative rating. This is one of the most overrated shows out there. It's a chore tomoreless
  • still a good show

    one of my favorite cartoons
  • WAS a good show

    2.0
    This show was a really good cartoon until 2008 when the baby came the show went down hill Some people say why do you hate poof he's just a baby? well hes not hes just a waste of animation space. for the next season was horrible it was all about poof all he ever did was cry and poop and be annoying. and the episodes after that they just rushed and made it worst. Then the writers knew that the show was going down the hill so they added a dog it was the worst idea ever. So when that season which i call hell they made really stupid episodes Timmy got more spoiled and greedy and they got rid a Vicky the source of his fairy's. and the next season OH GOD horrible it was the worst Ever. Thanks to the dog and baby if they make a movie when they both die that would be cool but now the shows ruined better luck calling it magic full house just cancel it its over its ruined.moreless

    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
