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.

  • Great Show!!!! Until Poof showed up.....

    5.5
    I used to love the Fairly Odd Parents, especially the older episodes! My favorite episodes are Super Bike, Channel Chasers, Ruled Out, That's Life and Self Life (the one with Tom Sawyer)

    This show was so great. Not only was it funny, but it was deep, funny and educational as well. There was always a moral in each and every episode of this show. Like in Channel Chasers, it was about what happens when you grow up in life and in Ruled Out, Timmy wished for his parents to care less.

    This was the golden years of the Fairly Odd Parents!

    Now when the Fairly Odd Baby movie aired in February 2008, and when Cosmo and Wanda's baby was born, the show began to decline and the show just became really really stupid!

    It seems like now every episode revolves around and about Poof and nothing else and the dumb ass things Poof does. Have you people ever noticed that none of the original characters like Chester, . Elmer or Trixie or even Vickie (the evil babysitter) ever appear on this show today at all? What has diminished this show the most is the significant shift in the characters' personalities. Ugh.

    Also, Timmy went from being a really really nice kid to a selfish spoiled brat who bitches out of his ass when he doesn't get what he wants.

    Cosmo went from being kind of dumb, but smart and clever, to completely stupid, to the point where it's just too pathetic to even be considered funny.

    Wanda went from being a role model to Timmy and a caring woman to a naggy old lady who complains and nags about everything.

    It's like really, do the writers think that if they change the characters into total dimwits it's going to make the show better. Seriously? That's what it seems like, but that isn't how it works.

    I never see the other characters anymore. Like Francis (the scool bully) you never see him anymore. I hardly ever see Chester or the smart kid . or Timmy's other friends on this show anymore, Trixie, Elmer, Sanjay or any of them) either. None of the original characters appear on this show anymore. You know why?

    Because every damn episode revolves around Poof or Mr. Crocker, but 75% of the time, it is about Poof.

    Secondly, the plots are the same crap over and over again. Timmy gets into a dumb situation, Poof does something ridiculous, Cosmo acts like a moron and Wanda just bitches and complains at Timmy for every little thing. Whatever crap happened is gone and there is always a lame gag at the end.

    It seems as though The Fairly Odd Parents is going down the same road as Spongebob is. Getting worse and worse in quality.

    They got to end this show already because it is not worth it anymore. The writers are clearly running out of ideas.

    Nickelodeon does not care about the viewers at this point and all they care about is profit. As long as they are making money, they do not care and they will keep garbage on their network going, because that is what it comes down to in a nut shell. Money!

    They need to end this show already. It should have ended 5 years ago, but it didn't and that is what bad about it. Ever since they brought Poof along, the show went downhill and nearly episode since revolves around Poof or that stupid dog they just added recently too, which further diminished this show, as if it wasn't enough already!

    The writers and animators are running out of ideas and the show is deteriorating and it is sad actually because the Fairly OddParents is such a good show and it stinks to see it just dying and dying, but never officially dying! I can just see it will be cancelled soon because of a non-existent audience because already the show has become non-existent (in my point of view) So who knows.

    Do not watch any of the new Fairly Odd Parents (2008-present) unless you want to lose all of your intelligence levels. Watch the classic, gold episodes of the show (2001-2006) and do not even bother watching the new garbage episodes because they are not worth your time. Period.

    The title of this review speaks for it's self. "Great Show!" Until Poof showed up.moreless
  • The baby dog happened.

    5.5
    This show used to be one of the best shows on Nick,until things just got baby messed up everything and is so hard to take care added a dog that messes up even more and the story turned into an awful only recommend for you to watch the episodes that were made before 2009.
  • I wish this show would never end!

    10
    It has been going for 9 seasons and has gotten renewed for a 10th season and up to now its been great! I hope it can atleast go to 300 episodes!
  • Went off a cliff and now its a dusty video tape.

    5.0
    This show was very funny as I grew up, but they never knew when to stop. When they ran out of ideas, they started throwing new characters in to fill the sad gaps of missing humor. Now its a pretty eclipsed show, you barely see an ad or an video game, nor a kid wearing a t-shirt. The show lost its spotlight. It used to be one of Nick's best cartoons when I was a child.moreless
