  • Trixie, Poof, and Timmy's parents ruined the whole episode for me!

    4.0
    So, in this episode, Timmy gets a lot of F's so Crocker made Trixie announce his "prize". I hated it when Trixie insulted Timmy like that. It ruined the whole episode for me. And then, Crocker gave the permission slip to Timmy for his parents to sign. When Timmy got home is another disaster. His parents agree to sign him in military school. The disaster continues with Poof throwing a tantrum because he didn't go to sleep. Well, he needs a sleep alright! A permanent sleep! Other than that the puppeting and the ending were the funny parts. But then again, they cannot save this episode. This episode gets an F and needs to go to military school and die in war!!!!!!!!!!!!! This episode made me angry like Angry Jack!moreless
  • Timmy uses his parents as puppets in order for him to not go to military academy and Poof refuses to take his medicine.

    9.0
    I thought that this was a superb episode of "The Fairly OddParents" and it was enjoyable for the most part. My only complaint about this episode was when Timmy's parents were excited about sending Timmy to military school. Why do Timmy's parents have to be jerks? Seriously? I would understand why Timmy didn't want to spend time with them in the past episodes and future episodes. This episode has pretty much made me laugh hard. Poof refusing to take his medicine and Poof turning into a three-headed monster was very funny. Timmy's parents drinking the lemonade that puts them to sleep was very funny. I was also laughing hard when Timmy and Cosmo were using Mr. Turner and Mrs. Turner as puppets. By the way, the scenes I'm gonna tell are the scenes that Timmy and Cosmo made Mr. Turner and Mrs. Turner do. Timmy is using Mr. Turner as the puppet and Cosmo is using Mrs. Turner as the puppet. Mrs. Turner putting make-up on her face was funny. Mr. Turner and Crocker tango dancing made me laugh absolutely hard. Crocker being used as a puppet towards the end of the episode was also very funny. Poof finally taking his medicine and being back to his normal baby self was good to see as well. The ending was also hilarious when Crocker's head was slammed in the bus door and the bus takes Crocker to Cincinnati. Overall, a superb episode of "The Fairly OddParents". 9/10moreless
  • So Crocker and Poof are Timmys inconvinients here

    10
    Well so Crocker gives timmy his 5000 F so Trixie announces him he'll go to the Crocker boot camp with Denzel and Dolores, so Timmy thinks Mom & Dad are still like how they where from seasons 1-3 and argue with Crocker, but hello Timmy, the series is no longer like that, so Crocker arrives and they all make a deal, but Wanda can't help because she is to busy with Poof, yeah, again. So Cosmo and Timmy make puppets out of Mr. & Mrs. Turner and try to convince Crocker to destroy the signed permission slip, so Wanda comes needing help so she makes Crocker busy making him think the Turners are interested in his life, so they make Poof fall sleep and Crocker after telling the Turners his whole life realizes he doesn't need to send Timmy to military school and C&W send him to Cincinatti (were he can't go back since 198sth)



    Overall: Funny with good jokes and no nag ones. 9/10moreless
  • I could've been better, but it could've been worse. Once again, one detail ruined the score.

    8.0
    This episode was by no means as unique as yesterday's episode, but it was almost as funny. I liked seeing Timmy's parents and Crocker as puppets, especially when Mom was putting lipstick on. I also liked the ending when Crocker got his head slammed in the bus door and the reference to the talking out of sync in Japanese films even though that could be kind of offensive. One more thing I liked about this episode was the fact that there weren't any overused gags like there are in 90% of the other episodes (in yesterday's there was, btw, but that was ok. It was actually funny that time). However, once again, one thing prevented this episode from getting a higher rating, the fact that Timmy's parents were excited about sending him to military school. This is because, number one,we all saw it coming after Timmy's line immediately previous to this scene, and number two, they usually are jerks to him so it was no big surprise anyway. :( Bottom line, this episode could have been a lot better and definitely wasn't as good as yesterday's, but at least it wasn't as boring and unfunny as it could have been.
