  • Mom and Dad are ghost hunters! But the ghosts? Timmy's fairies, of course!

    9.5
    So Mom and Dad are so borec that they won't cook of work so Timmy asks for a sub sandwich and Cosmo poof us a really sub and eats it. Then at night he sleep-floates and Mom and Dad believe its a ghost so they show Timmy a VHS about them ghosthunting in the 80s until Chet Ubetche kicked them out of the city. So Timmy wishes for a ghost catching device and for his faires to be ghost so that his parents are happy, but when they want to make the ghost-hunting a business again, Cosmo, Wanda and Poof have to pose as ghosts all around Dimmsdale. Then when they are succesful again Chet comes top tell them he will prove they are failures again and TImmy suggest meeting at the haunted mansion up in the hill..the one he just wished for. But there's a problem: Mom and Dad changed their equipment for some stuff Crocker gave them, meaning that it's fairy catching. Timmy goes to warn them but it's to late for Cosmo and Wanda, but not Poof. As they are about to be killed on the fairy chipper, Poof, enraged turns into a huge monster and saves his parents. Chet then admits the Polter-geeks were indeed real ghostbusters. At the hospital where Dad and Mom were recovering, Cosmo accidentally falls in the fishbowl after trying to eat a knuckle sandwich, so Mom and Dad revive their OTHER business: alien hunting and decided to catch Cosmo. IT was a very good episde, but the ending was kind of dull.moreless
  • It can get boring in some parts but this episode was enjoyable for the most part and it was better than "Beach Blanket Bozos" in my opinion

    9.0
    I thought that this was a superb episode of "The Fairly OddParents". It wasn't my favorite episode but it was enjoyable for the most part. This NEW FOP episode won Nicktoon Premiere Week for Monday along with the NEW FOP episode "Beach Blanket Bozos". Some of the scenes in this episode were boring and kinda dragged which is why my score is a little low. Although, I thought this episode was better than "Beach Blanket Bozos"in my opinion. Mr. Turner and Mrs. Turner being ghost hunters after being bored of their lives was very good. Yes, this episode is a reference to the early 1980s film "Ghostbusters". I thought that it was funny when Cosmo was eating a SUB-marine sandwich and then gets a stomachache afterwards. Chet Ubetcha doubting that Mr. Turner and Mrs. Turner are ghost hunting frauds was very good. Nice to actually see Chet Ubetcha when he is not doing the news. Chet Ubetcha sure is a short person though :D LOL. It was very funny when Mr. Turner and Mrs. Turner exploded Crocker's house and then you can hear Crocker's scream. It was interesting to only hear one quick audio of Crocker which was when he was screaming but not actually appearing or anything. The funniest part in this episode though when Mr. Turner, Mrs. Turner, and Chet Ubethca went inside the their "Poltergeeks" vehicle and that Ghost Chipper smashed them. Poof saving Cosmo and Wanda (who are ghosts) when they were about to be chipped was very good. The ending was very dull when Timmy's dad and Timmy's mom wanted to be Alien hunters or something like that. Overall, a superb episode of "The Fairly OddParents" but some of the scenes were boring and the ending was sorta dull. 9/10moreless
  • Once ghost hunters, always ghost hunters.

    9.0
    Timmy's parents are so bored that even a giant lizard bores them. So when Cosmo literally eats a submarine, he is covered over his blanket, and his parents think Cosmo's a ghost, which reveals they were once ghost hunters. So the fairies go through houses to pretend to be ghosts. Now this episode had some hilarious jokes and had a big twist at the end which I want spoil, but it was a huge shock. Overall, I'd give it a 9 because of the nice idea, and the Ghost busters and Poltergeist references were cool.



    P.S. There are Danny Phantom and Pac-Man cameos in one part. Try and find themmoreless
