  • Timmy is afraid of feet?

    This is very revealing (okay not really) but Timmy is afraid of feet? And the running gag where Wanda tells Timmy to use something dangerous was hillarious!

    As for Lights, camera, Adam, the running gags were great too!And a rare event happens in A bad case of diary-uh. Cosmo is acting smart! well most of th episode... while Timmy and Wanda are causing mischief! it is average, rare but

    average... great episode...but timvisible is still better then this wad of junk! A real wad of junk! Biggest wad of junk I ever seen!

    OKay nobody cares... Tallyho (Dunsworth,s version of goodbye)

  • L,C,A! was ok, but Diary-Uh was one of my absolute favorites!

    I am not going to review the Lights, Camera, Adam, episode because there is not much that I can say about it. It wasn't that good. On the other hand, Diary-Uh has some of the funniest writing! I get a major kick out of the jokes. The 'the bond between a every girl... and me... and her diary is a very special one.' Most of the episode (it has to be my 10th time seeing it. I was laughing before the joke because I was just dying waiting for it. Truely one of the better episodes of one of nickelodeon's best shows.moreless
  • A good Season 4 episode!

    Lights! Camera! Adam! was an average episode. The funny parts in the episode had to be the Jay Leno show reference. Nothing much to say about this one.

    But, A Case of Diary-Uh was one of the greatest Season 4 episodes. Reality had swapped. Cosmo was acting more serious than Wanda? Thats werid! Wanda and Timmy doing something while Cosmo warns them? Great joke! Even the ways Timmy was getting back at Vicky didnt work. You just cant help but feel sorry for Cosmo at the end where he gets beaten up.

    Overall, great episodes. This episodes shows the potential that the series has.moreless
  • Timmy scared of oranges? O__o Cosmo trying to be the smart one? O_____o This is obviously another one of the Fairly Odd Parents wacky episodes!

    Wanda being evil and Cosmo being the smart one? These are the reasons why the Fairly Odd Parents rocks. This is a very well done episode as we

    learn even more about Timmy (Scared of clowns, oranges, etc) and about Vicky (She sucks her thumb? o_O). These episodes tells us more about the characters. But if the Bronze Knee cap was able to get out of the comic book, couldn't the rest of the Chin's enemies do so as well? Anyway, both episodes are good but 'Diary-Uh!' would be my choice over 'Lights! Camera! Adam!" in my opinion. They're both still good episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • When Timmy is first revealing his secrets, he is about to reveal that his goldfish are actually his fairies, but Vicky stops him with an assumption. Since he was telling the truth, why didn't she listen? Especially if her assumption was right, she could have tried to sell the "gold" goldfish.

    • After Wanda comments how real Hollywood is and the car drives by, Wanda's lipstick dissappears when she and Cosmo are shaking in the breeze.

    • If you look closely in "Lights, Camera, Adam" as Timmy's walking down the Walk of Fame you see Butch Hartman's, the creator of Fairly OddParents, name on one of the stars.

    • In A Bad Case of Diary-Uh when Timmy walks in school and everybody is dressed up as clowns when you first see Chester his braces are missing. But later on his braces are there.

    • If Dunsworth was afraid of pink, why wasn't he afraid of Vicky's pink eyes?

      Perhaps he didn't look into her eyes, or they were too little to notice.

    • In the episode when Mark from outer space takes Vicky with him to his planet, Timmy's mom and dad drop him off at the place with happy peppy guys because Vicky couldn't baby-sit.
      but in this episode, since Vicky couldn't babysit, Timmy's parents get some people in black that look evil to baby-sit. I thought that their alternative was the place with the colorful balls and the happy peppy people.
