  • . Fairly Oddparents!

    2.0
    From this episode on, the Fairly Oddparents episodes only go downhill never getitng back to how good it was before!
  • The decline of the FOP starts here

    2.0
    Like many other FOP fans when I saw this special's commercials I got hyped up about it, but it was all hype and very little substance in this special. The special is about Cosmo and Wanda wanting to have a baby, and when they do have one everyone from the Pixies, to Jordon, to the Anti-Fairies want the baby to raise as their own. Now that's all good, and everything, but where this special falls apart is lackluster humor, a boring and predictable story, and very little cleverness. The episode begins in the park where Cosmo and Wanda are looking at babies while Timmy is busy doing stuff that he wished for. The same gag is used in this part of the story. Timmy is in danger, Cosmo and Wanda are too busy looking at babies, Timmy gets hurt, and repeat. Get used to these same gags being used people they will occur a lot at this show. Timmy eventually decides enough is enough and wishes for his fairies to have a baby. Here is where a major red flag comes into play here. Apparently in Fairy World it's the men that have the babies, and not the women. Now I know this is for kids, but when they grow up and learn about how a baby is created then they will be very confused. They could have kept the baby in Wanda, and not in Cosmo. All Timmy would have to do is wish for the baby, and it would be in Wanda's belly, and there you go. Wanda even says it's beautiful or something, but I am horrified instead about that. So as time goes by Cosmo goes through the wonders of birth. Such things are mood swings that aren't funny, eating baseball cards, and another gag that is repeated a lot is Cosmo puking on Timmy. In every scene Cosmo Cosmo is seen puking on Timmy, and it gets boring fast. After a pointless party scene and trying to find Cosmo after Timmy tells him to get lost the baby is ready. Timmy wishes the baby out of Cosmo's stomach, and word of the birth spreads to the Anti-Fairies and the Pixies. I also want to point out how awful the baby looks. Why do fairy babies look like bowling balls. Maybe it's cute factor, but seriously you mean to tell me fairy babies grow from bowling balls to what everyone else look like? A fight occurs over who wants the baby. The Pixies and the Anti-Fairies want him to use his power to take over the world. Jorgan even join and wants the baby to train him properly. A chase scene ensures, and after 5 minutes Timmy and his fairies with the baby go back home. I also want to point out that yet another running gag is used again and again the naming of the baby. All throughout this special it keeps using that gag constantly. Some of the names were funny, but it got boring fast. Eventually the baby is found again, and is captured. A rescue mission is planned, but fails and Timmy, Jorgan, Cosmo, and Wanda are captured. They all break out, and go forward to stop the plan of the Pixies, and Anti-Fairies. After some more bad jokes including the gag of naming the baby Timmy and the gang get the baby back, and all go home. Jorgan takes the baby in the midst of the celebration and goes back to Fairy World. However Cosmo and Wanda have the real baby, and they decide to name him Poof. Dumb name for a kid, but who cares? And so our special ends with all living happily ever after, or until the new episodes. This was such a poorly done episode. Very little jokes like Jorgan being in an Easter Bunny suit were funny, and the constant use of gags again and again got annoying fast. The idea that men have babies is not only creepy, but makes me feel uncomfortable. Sadly Butch Hartman wouldn't learn his lesson with this, and would make episodes of FOP that would fall into mediocrity. It's sad to see this, but after this special FOP wouldn't fully recover and the new episodes it has show how far this series went down after this special. Don't worry if you missed this special at all it was nothing more than a diaper full of stupidity, and awfulness.moreless
  • Uhhh...

    2.5
    This episode was just too unusual. Male fairies have babies?? Seriously, what sort of ideas were the writers trying to put into younger viewers' heads when they came up with this? I understand it's just a cartoon, but it's just downright ridiculous even for this show! I will admit I did sort of like the plot for this special, and I got excited when I first heard about Cosmo and Wanda having a baby, but this special just did not live up to the hype it got. Also, I might add that most of the jokes in this episode were really lame. A lot of the humor was running gags that got old very quickly, such as Cosmo throwing up on Timmy and the "new baby smell" gag. There was even a whole scene that basically repeated itself. If that isn't a sign of writers' block, I don't know what is. I also thought the ending was lame. However, there were a couple scenes I got a mild chuckle out of, the parts where Timmy corrected himself when he started talking baby talk and the scene with Jorgen dressed up like a pink bunny. Overall, though, I did not think this was a good special, and I would not go out of my way to watch it again. Final grade: F. Marebear2009, out!moreless
  • The Fairly OddParents returned after a year hiatus and it gets an awful one...

    1.0
    When Cosmo and Wanda are distracted by babies, Timmy wishes that Cosmo and Wanda would have their own baby. But the Pixies and the Anti-Fairies find out and join forces to kidnap the baby and use his untapped power for world domination. It will be up to Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Jorgen, and some explosive burritos to save the first fairy baby born in 10,000 years. I thought that this an awful episode of the Fairly OddParents. Wow, 41 people reviews, I knew that would be a lot of people reviewing this TV Movie. I wanted to review a few Fairly OddPants I disliked. Anyway, speaking of this TV-Movie, it was just awful and unwatchable. I honestly can't stand every minute of it. The characters were super annoying. The vomiting gag was unfunny. Also, I thought Cosmo was at his worst here. IMO, he may give me some laughs from his dimwit stuffs, but half of them are annoying and unfunny. Another huge problem on why In hate this special so much was that Nick air this special a lot. What's the big deal? I watched it twice and I suffered from watching it. Overall, an awful special of the Fairly OddParents...can't believe this had to the first episode with Poof and it sucked (although the later episodes are not as bad as this one, expect for a few more)...so don't waste your time in this one. 1/10moreless
  • The introduction of the new "Fairly OddParents" character named Poof

    8.0
    I thought that this was a great "Fairly OddParents" 1-hour TV movie. It was a great introduction of a new "Fairly OddParents" character Poof. Timmy finds out that Cosmo and Wanda have always wanted a baby but they say that they can't because Jorgan won't let there be any more babies in Fairy World. Timmy wishes that Cosmo and Wanda would have a baby but then Jorgen disagrees with them and tells them "no" but the rule about baby wishing wasn't in the "Da Rules" book so Jorgan agrees to let Cosmo and Wanda have a baby. Now here is the weird thing that made my score low though... Cosmo was pregnant... not Wanda... Cosmo. How in the world can a male dairy be pregnant? I found it weird and didn't think it was appropriate for the little kids to see that. Cosmo gets the baby out and they all named the baby Poof (which didn't get the name until the end of this 1-hour TV movie). I thought that it was funny when Cosmo was going through his mood swings while being pregnant. The Anti-Fairies and then Pixies team up to get Poof to use his powers. It was funny when Jorgan kept going the restroom after eating those burritos. I also thought that Jorgan dressing up as a bunny was hilarious. Overall, despite the weirdness of Cosmo being pregnant, this was a great "Fairly OddParents" episode. 8/10

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (30)

    • Instead of chasing around looking for Cosmo, why don't they just wish to be where Cosmo is?

    • Why did Mama Cosma needed a parachute when she could fly?

    • The first airing of this episode brought in 8.8 million viewers, and a repeat airing the next day brought in an additional 4.8 million viewers

    • Where did Timmy suddenly get the electric razor to shave off the beard that Poof conjured up on him?

    • The rules state that you can't wish you were a fairy, but Timmy and Sheen did so in "A Mile In My Shoes" and "The Jimmy-Timmy Power Hour II", respectivley.

    • When Timmy, Jorgen, Cosmo, and Wanda are stuck in the net in Anti-Cosmo's castle, Timmy has knight's armor on that looks a lot like his armor in Knighty Knight. Could it be the same armor? Or does all armor look the same in this show?

    • How did the Poof decoy end up near Anti-Cosmo's castle when Jorgen threw it away at Dimmsdale Park?

    • During the baby shower there is a sign that has Cosmo's name on it but "Cosmo: is spelled Cosno"

    • Jorgen claimed in his list of rules that you can't bring someone back from the dead with magic. But in the episode 'Knighty Knight', Cosmo and Wanda brought Arnold back to life after he was eaten by the dragon. Also in "That's Life", Timmy wished for his mother's garden to return to life, as did all the dead pets buried there.

    • Goof:When everyone got sucked into the vortex after Poof farts look closely at Jorgan before he gets sucked in,he suddenly has fairy wings!!

    • Timmy states that Cosmo wears diapers all the time, but he has been seen in other episodes wearing underpants instead.

    • The High Fairy Council decreed that no more fairy babies would be born after Cosmo; however, in "The Big Bash" Wandisimo told Wanda that if he wins her in his bet with Cosmo, he would see to it that all their children would be named after him.

    • These are the names they gave the baby until they settled for Poof: Barftholomew, Keanu, Dagmar, Jose, Tallulah, Li'l T (Timmy), Twinkle, Flo Jo, Kajagoogoo, Elvis, Oprah, Fauntleroy, Bill, Makenzie, Farrah, Bosley, Liza, and Napoleon.

    • When Timmy is about to feed Poof and sees the labels, it appears that he throws "The Baby To Be Named Later"'s bottle away and keeeps Cosmo's.

    • In previous episodes, it is suggested that Cosmo's head is empty. But in this episode, Wanda says it is filled with jelly.

      Response: Cosmo must have filled it with jelly later on.

      That´s because Wanda uses Cosmo´s head as ice box and I quote: Cosmo: "It stays fresh because my head is vacuum sealed!"

    • We learn that wishing to become a fairy is against the rules. However, in A Mile in My Shoes, Timmy wishes to be Cosmo and Wanda's fairy godparent.

      Jorgen could have made it a rule that kids can't become fairies after Timmy made the wish.

    • It's said in this episode that fairies are immortal but in School's Out: The Musical when Cosmo and Wanda are locked in the dungeons we see a fairy skeleton, meaning fairies actually can die.

      There's a difference between Immortal and incapable of death. In the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, Elves will live forever, but can be killed in battle. Besides, there are other magical creatures in fairy prison besides fairies such as pixies, gnomes, etc., and they don't live forever.

    • Anti Cosmo is possibly the leader of the Anti Fairies, being that he sits at the head of the counsel table and seems to coordinate their meetings.

      This is already implied in other episodes, as he always gives orders.

    • Why would the Anti-Cosmo and the pixies put on Dr. Rip Studwell and Jorgen costumes when they can change shape?

      Anti-Cosmo lost his Fuhgiggly gland (the gland that allows Fairies to alter their shape) to Cosmo in exchange for his freedom. There is also no evidence that the Pixies can alter their shapes.

      Response: Anti-Cosmo re-gained his shape-changing power in "The Jimmy-Timmy Power Hour 2." Besides, Anti-Cosmo still has his wand to change his shape.

    • When Cosmo, Wanda, Timmy, and poof come home. Poof turns Timmy's bedside table into ice cream. But then when Timmy starts talking there is a coat rack instead.

    • Running gag: Cosmo, Wanda, and Timmy keep trying to check if the baby is a boy or a girl but are interrupted.

    • When Cosmo said "Where's Timmy?" Cosmo got skinny.

    • Jorgen says Cosmo and Wanda will be able to visit the baby every other millenium, but when he holds up a calender it says "23rd Century". It should say "31st Century".

      Reply: Jorgen actually said 'half a millenium', not a 'millenium'. But 300 years still isn't half a millenium.

    • It takes three months for a baby fairy to be born.

    • This is supposed to be Cosmo and Wanda's first baby, and Cosmo was supposed to be the last baby born. But in "Tiny Timmy", the Kidneyland operator was supposed to be their son.

      It was never suggested that the Kidneyland operator was their son, as he tells Cosmo & Wanda "Please don't tell my parents", however , he is still clearly younger then Cosmo.

      Note: The guy in kidneyland looks like a 17 years old human right?, and if we do the same with Cosmo and Wanda, they are like kids of 10 years old (Timmy´s age), so, The guy in kidneyland is older than Cosmo and Wanda, and that´s why he´s embarrased of the job.

    • Running gag: Everyone kept giving the baby different names except Timmy who wanted to call him Lil' T.

    • When Cosmo is in labor, Dr. Rip Studwell claims that no one knows how to give birth because the last fairy baby was born 10,000 years ago. If Cosmo was the last fairy born, then wouldn't Dr. Studwell have been around back then? Or anybody for that matter?

      10,000 Years is a long time. Given that they thought there would never be another Fairy Baby, Dr. Rip Studwell probably just forgot about how to deliver a Fairy Baby.

      It wasn't even Dr. Rip studwell, it was Anti Cosmo. Still, Anti Cosmo wouldn't know how to deliver a fairy baby either.

    • If Cosmo was last fairy born. Wanda's older.

    • We learn that fairies live forever.

      In this episode they do say that Fairies Live Forever but they said it in Timmy's 2D House of Horror. I quote Cosmo, "Since I'm Immortal that's Forever".

    • One of the wishes that can't be wished for is Tom Cruise. Also there is no "Electric Car".

  • NOTES (32)

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • The name of Jorgan's cereal is Raisin Bland.This could be a parody of the cereal Raisin Brand.

    • The cow in the tornado is a reference to a cow in a twister in the movie Twister.

    • "No Tom Cruise..."

      The Rule Book states that one of the things that cannot be wished for is Tom Cruise. This is a possible in-joke regarding Paramount Pictures cutting its ties with the actor. Paramount is a subsidiary of Viacom, which also owns Nickelodeon.

    • Several of the baby names considered before settling on Poof are references to famous people:

      -- Keanu - actor Keanu Reeves.
      -- Tallulah - actress Tallulah Bankhead.
      -- Flo Jo - athlete Florence Griffith Joyner.
      -- Kajagoogoo - 1980's pop band of the same name.
      -- Elvis - singer/actor Elvis Presley.
      -- Oprah - talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
      -- Fauntleroy - book/movie character Little Lord Fauntleroy.
      -- Farrah - actress Farrah Fawcett.
      -- Bosley - possibly a reference to actor Tom Bosley or the character of Bosley from the 1970s series Charlie's Angels.
      -- Liza - singer/actress Liza Minnelli.
      -- Napoleon - French military and political leader Napoleon Bonaparte.

      -- Barftholomew - Bartholomew the apostle

    • After the Pixies were unmasked while posing as Jorgen at the Fairy Hospital, one of them says they thought the Jorgen suit would work this time. It's a reference to Wish Fixers, where they were first seen using the trick.

    • The plot of the episode is the same as the recent story arc in Marvel comics, X-Men Messiah Complex. Timmy must protect the first fairy baby to be born in a while from evil forces, as the X-Men had to protect the first mutant baby to be born since M-Day from evil forces.

    • Cosmo refers to the Beegees in this episode which was a popular 70s or 80s band.

    • Chet Ubetcha: Dogs and cats are living together. Mass hysteria!

      This line is almost an exact quote from the 1984 movie "Ghostbusters". The Ghostbusters are describing to the mayor of New York what is going to happen to the city. The character Peter Venkman says the line "Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!"
