Episode Summary

Crime Wave:
At Timmy's request, Cosmo and Wanda poof him out of his tub, so he doesn't have to take a bath. However, they forget to dress him first! Simultaneously, the comic book Timmy was going to read slips into the water, powering the Crimson Chin's arch-enemy H2Olga!

Odd Ball:

To earn enough money to buy a new V-Cube, he works as ball boy for Dimmsdale's Ball Hogs, the selfish basketball team that never wins.

  • Both pointless episodes

    Crime Wave: At Timmy's request, Cosmo and Wanda poof him out of his tub, so he doesn't have to take a bath. And then Timmy reads his comic book and wishes that he is part of the story. Lame! Too pointless.

    Score: 0.0

    Odd Ball: A mere 36 hours after Timmy gets a new video game for his V-Cube, the system breaks! This is lame! And also, in this episode, Timmy learns to share? Isn't he supposed to learn to share at his school. The basketball part was also lame. The players also did not learn how to share. The only part I liked here is when Timmy's dad said "Nice new V-cube!".

    Score: 2.0moreless
  • In "Crime Wave", Cosmo and Wanda accedentally poof Timmy to the comic store naked, so Timmy has to try to get home without anyone noticing that he is naked. In "Odd Ball", Timmy needs a new V-Cube, so he becomes a ballboy for a local basketmoreless

    "Crime Wave" was the better out of the two episodes. I LOVED it! Timmy ends up having a lot of failed attempts at getting people to not realize that he is naked. He ends up getting the nickname "naked lad". In the episode, a newspaper appears saying "Naked terror stuns city" with a picture of Timmy. The best part of the episode came at the end when Timmy looks up at Wanda saying "Well, at least I am naked in my own house" and then Cosmo appears naked saying "what, everyone is doing it". There was also another plot in the episode about the crimson chin battling with H2Olga while trying to take care of a baby. A GREAT episode!

    "Odd Ball" was to me just an average episode. It had a good message though, which was that it is good to share instead of being selfish all of the time. During the episode, Doug Dimmadome came in talking about moving the Dimsdale ballhogs to Alaska and Blubber nuggets. To me, the blubber nugget thing got old fast. At the end though, Timmy learned to share instead of being selfish like he did at the beginning of the episode. That is the main reason that I liked that episode.

    Overall, they were both good, but "Crime Wave" was easily the better episode.moreless
  • Well written episode.

    This episode was a well written and also a great one in the series as I think of it. The thing that was the funniest in the episode was when Timmy was naked because it looked funny, especially in the part when he was in the museum that the kids almost saw him. Anyway another part that I liked about the episode was when the Crimson Chin battled H2Olga. The battle was tough and a great one also. The baby was funny in the ways he used to act. Also what really made me laugh was when H2Olga was trapped inside the baby. The episode was a great one in my opinion.

    The other episode was also good and the ballhogs didn't know how to play in which was a sad thing. But Timmy's V-Cube looked cool and looked just like the GameCube in which was a cool thing. Also the ballhogs at the end were great and finally learned how to play basketball in which I think it was a great thing that happened in the episode.moreless
  • A peek into the Crimson Chin's universe. Timmy plays pro basketball.

    The Crimson Chin episode was pretty good, I guess. It was a nice change of pace from the episodes usually centered around Timmy. However, I have some MAJOR problems with the episode "Odd Ball". Have the writers of Fairly Odd Parents ever played or even watched the game of basketball? Obviously not. I'm no expert at the game, but the characters broke every single rule of basketball. What they were playing looked more like ultimate than basketball. I mean, I didn't expect this episode to be a realistic depiction of pro basketball, but COME ON. In one scene, Timmy picks up the ball and walks to the basket to slam dunk without dribbling once. In another, he dribbles with both hands, and in yet another scene he and his teammates run with the ball and pass it off to each other like a football. Really sad.moreless
  • This episode rocked in a good way that is because I enjoyed it and would watch it any day.

    This episode would make another great installment by making me and my brother watch it again and again and it did so we do want to see it on the next premier of The Fairly Oddparents so will they please play this episode again so lets get the episode on the tv to get the ratings back in business to get this episode to a more rocking episode to have this everytime with better and better results in the ratings. The episode was the best i have ever seen with the goodness and the being the best installment ever done.moreless

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • the V cube it's a parody of the x box or the Nintendo Gamecube.

    • Timmy made several shots in a row yet only HIS score rose when in a real game of basketball, you are only permitted one shot and once you make it, it's the other team's turn. Timmy cheated in several other ways. It just shows the rules weren't fair.

    • In Crime Wave, when Timmy watches the tv, it is in black and white, but the mayor's eyes and the button are colored (Yellow and blue respectively)

    • The Crimson Chin comics must be composed of 16 pages since the staplers are found on page 8.

    • Dad said "Prune me up, baby!" but he was drinking Water instead of Prune Juice.
      He was going to finish the water and then drink prune juice.

    • Look Hard:
      In Crime Wave, the newspaper Timmy was using to make sure nobody saw him naked was titled 'Naked Terror Stuns City!' and had a picture of Chompy with the caption, 'Chompy Scarred For Life!'

    • In Odd Ball, Timmy walks in one of the games, and that would be travelling. The referees wouldn't have allowed it, because you can't travel in basketball.
