  • Christmas review 6#

    9.5
    Wow,what do you know? My Last Christmas review is an episode of a show I hate,and the only special that is not rated a 10. The special is nowhere near as good as Christmas Every Day,but is close to being as good as it. The episode starts with Timmy getting a bunch of presents for christmas,but all he ever wanted was a sleigh,and all of them were just things that were not useful. And of course,the parents come in,and they are the reason why I rated this a 9.5. It wasn't worse when Dad through a sleigh in the fire pit,but it was worse when they forced Timmy to shovel the road,proving that they do not care about their son. We then cut to a bad musical number,that also lowered the episode's score. Timmy then makes up a new holiday named Wishmas,which ends up driving Santa out of his job,and why is he in Santa form when he should be in adult form? Have these writers ever heard of continuity? But they have been driving the house insane. I thought it was hilailous that they had Milk and cookies every day. I even found Dad hilrailous with Noggman and his sidekick dog. I found the joke of how someone stepped in horse poo pathetic,since I hate toilet humor. The best part was the Grinch spoof,which was so funny. Timmy then decide to not let the fairies deliver the envelopes,giving Santa his powers back. Timmy gives his sleigh away,and learns the spirit of giving. Overall,this was a great episode,but with a few flaws. There were so many funny scenes including AJ's creepy computer. A great special to conclude my holiday reviewsmoreless
  • Christmas Review #18

    After nobody in Dimmsdale gets what they want for Christmas, Timmy wishes that everyone had one wish in the mail. Greedy Vicky then wishes for a million wishes, causing her overstuffed mailbox to explode, and everyone then catches all the falling wishes causing the Big Wand in Fairy World to overload and Jorgen to shut down the fairies' magic power. Christmas is then replaced by Wishmas. and a now unemployed Santa then moves in with the Turners, and Timmy tries to get him to move back to the North Pole. Just like the original Christmas episode "Christmas Every Day", this Christmas episode was excellent. I love this Christmas episode and "Christmas Every Day" EQUALLY even though this episode has two tiny nit-picks that really don't bug me that much but just a little. The first nit-pick was that this Christmas episode was Poof's first Christmas but yet he rarely appeared in this Christmas episode and didn't even say his usual line "Poof poof". He only appeared in like 2 or 3 scenes and that's it but it was like he wasn't even in this episode which bugged me a tiny bit. The second and final nit-pick was Timmy's parents forcing him to shovel all that snow near the beginning of the episode. Other than those two nit-picks, this Christmas episode was excellent and I love it. This Christmas episode was hilarious and wonderful to watch. The musical number "Not On The List" was very enjoyable and it gets stuck in my head after it's over. The hilarious parts in this episode was Cosmo and Wanda being the magic mailman, Chester's line "May The Cheese Be With You" (parody of the Star Wars line "May The Force Be With You"), the running gag with AJ's creepy computer, Mr. Turner as Nog Man and his sidekick dog Nog Dog, the fact that everyone eats milk and cookies every day, the talking horse, Mrs. Turner going insane after being officially sick of eating milk and cookies every day, The Grinch spoof, and Santa reading the letter and then when he puts down the letter... you see Timmy doing a little girl voice (that was unexpectedly hilarious). The most wonderful part of this Christmas episode was when Timmy learned the true meaning of Christmas which was giving after he gave up his sleigh so Santa Claus can give it a kid that needs it more than Timmy. Overall, the storyline was excellent and this episode was hilarious all the way and I never get tired of watching this episode... always worth watching every year. 10/10moreless
  • Christmas review 6: Another superb Christmas special

    9.0
    This was another superb Christmas special of the fairly oddparents. Like the other Christmas special, I really liked it, but I thought some parts were boring. Also, I didn't like that Timmy's parents threw away the sled. I laughed so hard at the talking horse gag. He was very funny. Cosmo and Wanda as mailman was funny. Mr. Turner as Nogman was very funny as well. Cosmo forgetting about Santa was hilarious (he said Santa Barbara, Monica, Clarita). Overall a superb episode of The Fairly OddParents. I can't tell which one is better, because they're superb (same rating number). 9/10moreless
  • Sorry America, looks like we got it first ;)!

    9.5
    feel that the show is slowly becoming what is was before, as if Butch Hartman is more involved with the show again. When the show started a plot ussially worked like this: Timmy is misserable about something and makes a wish. The wish goes wrong and some ussual wacky Fairly Oddparents mayhem starts. At the end of the episode Timmy learns a moral, and then we have a deliberatly quirky cheesy ending just to wrap it up. Somewhere in the middle of the series we lost this charm. Now, I can see it returning, particually in this Merry Wishmas special.



    I think I also noticed a little reference to the Oh Yeah shorts too



    And as for the plot: I'm not going to give too much away, but all I'll say is.....think back. Think back to 77 Secrets about Fairly Oddparents. It mentioned 3 things about the new series.



    1. A hint to Poof



    2. A hint to Timmy yelling at Cosmo to get lost in FOB



    3. Mail Carriers?



    This might prove important to the story ....



    One tiny complaint - What about Poof? Was he even there?....well he was, but he practically wasn't. In a lot of the scenes he wasn't even there with C&W,and that made me a little bit sad, esspecially as it was his first Christmas . Mind you, he did look sweet in his little santa hat, and that's got to be worth grabpiccing when I get the chance



    So that's my review...happy early christmas and keep wishingmoreless

    On Christmas day Timmy Turner wakes up to find not a present he wants. Somehow his Dad ended up with Timmy's sled. He got a talking horse and Timmy's sled which he threw into the fireplace! This scene was followed by the song Not On the List. After that Timmy wishes for Wishmas for him at first but then he sends everyone a One Wish Coupon! Vicky gets greedy by wishing for 1,000,000 more wishes thus giving everyone more! Santa has to move into Timmy's house do to the fact that Timmy killed Christmas! Eventually we find out Santa made the book!moreless
