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.

    • Went off a cliff and now its a dusty video tape.

      3.5
      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
    • Cool show!! Best show ever

      10
      Love it forever.
    • Stop keeping this show artificially alive, Butch Hartman!

      2.5
      People like him disgust me to no end. This show has long run its course. It's done everything creative it could possibly do. And what does this hack do in response? He puts it on life support by any means necessary just because he's that desperate to keep it alive.



      News flash, Hartman, The Fairly Odd Parents is now a vegetable. A complete shell of its former self. Do us all a favor and pull the plug already before you completely destroy all credibility this show once had.moreless
    • I love FOP!!!!!

      10
      Fairly Oddparents is my all-time favorite cartoon! Yes, yes, it has gone downhill because of those abominable characters known as Sparky, Chloe and Foop. Poof is cool with me, he's so cute! (and I'm a boy, and don't call me gay for that!) But still, FOP is awesome (i mean the first 6 seasons).

      The first five seasons were awesome. TRULY AWESOME, PURE AWESOMENESS! The first five seasons gave us gem episodes such as the Jimmy Timmy Power Hour trilogy, Fairy Idol, School's Out!: The Musical, etc. I liked season 6 as well (don't hate me for it). From season 6 to now - the series lost its spark. Now, it is godawful but I still watch it simply because I love the series so much. In season 8, there are a special episode called "Timmy's Secret Wish," that episode is awesome! It's the only decent episode from the new FOP.

      Ratings:

      Seasons 1-5: 100%

      Season 6: 100%

      Seasons 7-10: 0,1% (because of the aforementioned episode. FOP lost its charm and spark and it is godawful and unwatchable

      But FOP is awesome. I don't write the plot because everyone knows that. Kill Sparky with fire, we don't need him!!!! And also, kill Chloe and Foop with fire as well! Remove these godawful new characters! Down with Sparky, Chloe and Foop! I hate them so much! Foop is actually cool but he gets too many airtime, that's why I hate him.

      Anyways, the first live-action movie, Grow Up Timmy Turner!, was great. But the sequels were just godawful. But anyways, I love FOP!!!!!!!!!! Yes I do, in general, great show.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. In fact most of the original characters like Timmy's friends don't appear anymore and thus new ones were are added to continue using overused plots and jokes. 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 now only 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 hardly does anything and more recently added a stupid dog that is no different. Seriously why does Timmy need a fairy dog? He could've wished for a regular dog. Now Timmy has to share his fairy godparents with another kid which breaks the known rules of no sharing fairy godparents and other kids can't know about it unless they have fairy godparents too. I could go on but others have done it before and better than me. Nothing has changed other than the introduction of new pointless characters to focus on the same plots and themes.







      I really wish Butch Hartman and Nick would realize that this show is annoying and repetitive with deserved abandonment. Butch and Nick 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. This show doesn't even follow its own rules such as kids can't share their fairy godparents. I mean is there suddenly a severe shortage of fairy godparents? The plotholes have gotten so massive that you could drive a John Deere tractor (or other such large, lumbering, heavy equipment without trouble. Yes I know most shows have inconsistancies but this is at a whole new low level. The writers aren't just contridicting themselves of the show itself but they are now grasping at straws. I regret that I can't give it a negative rating because it deserves it. This is one of the most overrated shows out there. It's a chore to watch now. Seriously let it rest and move on.moreless
