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 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.

  • Not very good anymore

    1.0
    I used to love this show a lot until they rebooted it in 2008. So yeah, not good anymore
  • Great.

    9.5
    The best cartoon of Nickelodeon.
  • 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 ever appear on this show today at all?

    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. Now he is just completely stupid and annoying and not like a funny stupid. Like dumb as a post kind of dumb.

    Wanda went from being a role model to Timmy and a caring woman to a naggy old lady who bitches out of her ass about every little thing and nags everyone about everything.

    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 getting worse and worse. It is 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. What is the point of keeping it on? Hardly anyone watches this show anymore. I go to a summer YMCA camp and not once, do I ever hear my friends or any kid talk about this show anymore. It's popularity has declined significantly in my opinion. Around and about you never people talk about this show and be like "Oh Louis, did you see the Fairly Odd Parents last night?" "Oh yeah!!!" "You remember how dumb Poof acted?" "buh buh buh"

    Plus, you never see the merchandise of this show around anymore either. Like I go into stores everyday and not once have I ever saw Fairly Odd Parents merchandise in the last 5 years or so. Probably because people have realized how dumb the show is getting, so people quit watching it. Why is this show on if no one is watching it? You know why? Because, 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.

    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 showedmoreless
  • Went from a great show to one that needs to die like spongebob!

    6.0
    This show has went through the same path as spongebob, though fortunetly, the cutoff point of the good and bad episodes is later in 2007, the bad begining with season 6 in 2007! Can't beleive its still running, overall

    season 1-5, 10/10

    season 6 thorugh present 2/10 so that gives it an overall 6/10
  • NICKELODEON MOVES SHOW FROM ONCE-WEEKLY TO NIGHTLY AND EXPANDS WEB PRESENCE.
