This show was actually pretty good when it first premiere but after they added Poof to the series it started going downhill and. I think it should be canceled. But some people are going to correct me by saying 'It's going strong and shouldn't end just But due to the amount of people saying Poof ruined the show I think Nick should give it a break. I really don't like how most episodes today are centered around Poof. There are some good episodes from Season 6-present with the best being "Fairly Odd Baby", and some that are OK like "Open wide and say Ahhh' and some horrible ones like "A fairy odd pet". Overall okay show I just wish it was better. Peace out
The show was kind of funny when I first saw it. However, after more than 10 years, the show feels like it just should have wrapped up and ended. The show dragged on far too long that watching it feels tiering. I say Nick just does the finale by 2014.
I used to love this show so much! I'm going to be honest, I wanted Cosmo and Wanda to have a baby for the longest! But Poof is ANNOYING. Ever since he was born, mainly all the episodes have been focusing on him. To add insult to injury, he screws up almost every episode with his antics. I know he's a baby, but come on! What Poof did to FOP is kind of like what Dil and Kimmi did to Rugrats, if not worse. Wanda and Cosmo are super-overprotective now. Speaking of the devils, what happened to their relationship? I remember Cosmo and Wanda's relationship used to be so lovey-dovey and mushy. Now, not ONE episode goes by where he doesn't call her a nagger or fat, or something between the lines. Timmy became a spoiled brat. If it were up to me, I'd take his fairies away, because he doesn't even deserve them anymore. Instead of doing something to help humanity, he throws the 'biggest party on the planet'. It's on every TV, and his parents somehow don't notice his absence? His parents are negligent and CPS should just come and snap that little brat away. Then, there's that annoying Timmy fangirl, Tootie, and her evil older sister, Vicky the babysitter. The only people who I actually like on that show as of now are probably Chip Skylark, the Anti-Fairies (except for Foop. God I hate that ugly little shitstain more than the original Poof), the Pixies, and Timmy's friends (even though they hardly show up anymore, and frankly, I don't blame them). They haven't done anything that would make me want to punch the TV. Cancel this show already!!
Final Grade: C-
EDIT: Oh whoop-de-doo! Another stupid, pointless ugly character got added to the roster. Sparky the Dog, who's design makes an alpaca's phlegm look like a masterpiece and a voice so excruciatingly irritating that it'd put Uncle Grandpa to shame. This show isn't even jumping the shark anymore. Wow...
This show has been heading for the toilet since Sparky first appeared on the show. It was really funny Cosmo being the dumb one, it was kinda cute. Even Poof was funny. Foop I didn't mind much. When Sparky came along I just flipped the channel if he was on an episode. His dumbness is just ANNOYING. So I'm afraid I'm not going any further than season 9. Except the series finale. Sparky HAS to go it's so bad I can't even watch half the episodes without flipping the channel. The only reason it gets a 10 is because for the golden age.
10-year-old Timmy Turner is miserable with an evil babysitter Vicky so he is given Fairy God Parents to grant his every wish, but with certain rules from a book that apply. Sounds very creative. Although it's a kids show, it may appeal to all ages including teens and adults too. This show was once hilarious and awesome during the first 3 to 4 seasons. The plots were fresh and original. They were masterpieces. They were pure gold. Ah the childhood nostalgia. But after that, NOOOOOO SMH FACEPALM! What have you done? It got flushed down the toilet just like Spongebob (or worse) and is now nothing but a can of garbage or pile of dung. In its early era, the jokes and humor were actually funny and attractive to its audience and enjoyable. And like I said in my Spongebob review, you could easily tell that all episodes were somehow presented in the exact same style and manner while being unique in their own way with a plot that is brilliant and clever each time. They had that magic touch. But now ever since baby Poof came along, it's nothing but bad toilet humor that no fan likes anymore. He ruined everything about the show and mostly all episodes are focused on him now which only makes it worse because well... IT SUCKS. Timmy got all selfish and careless, Wanda just nags and complains, Cosmo got dumber (in a bad way) just like Patrick did in Spongebob when that declined too, Timmy's parents are negligent and don't really care about him, and the plots just took a turn for the worst. I will admit there are surprisingly some episodes that are still genius believe it or not and still have that magic touch to them that all older episodes had, but the majority of them just suck and are really boring. They're running out of ideas. Nickelodeon must must end this right now. It's getting ridiculous. You've got to be kidding me here Butch Hartman. Do you see what has happened and what is still happening to your show? It's terrible. Then they started making horrendous movie specials just like they did with Spongebob, which, oh my a perfect example of the awful transition the show has made and why it must be cancelled now. Abracatastrophe and Channel Chasers were stupendous, which was in the first and fourth seasons, but Fairly Odd Baby and all after were garbage, which were in the fifth and beyond. Coincidence? I THINK NOT! I can't stand seeing this and Spongebob decline anymore .do what's for the best and cancel this disgrace to the cartoon world of television now. I hate to see such a great show that has gone bad continue on only to stay worse and not get any better. It's just not the way the timeline of TV history should go. But Nickelodeon continues only for the money. Goodbye FOP and SB golden age. And Nickeloedon...
Fairly OddParents has been one of my favorites over the years and, unlike SpongeBob (the other longest running Nick show), it has remained funny and remained true to the 2001-2005 years. I still love the episodes, it's still entertaining, and so long as Butch is running the show it should stay that way.
Unlike Spongebob, the recent Fairly Odd Parent episodes are not as bad as some people say. Sure, we all know Spongebob was amazing up until the movie then it all went down the toilet. Of course, the late 1990'a and early 2000's episodes of Fairly Oddparents were the best, but this show still seems to keep up with similar plot flow and re-occuring inside jokes per episodes. Cosmo still never ceases to make me crack up still with his antics and Wanda stayed her caring naggy self. Poof was surprisingly not a harmful character edition to the show as a whole. He actualy adds more room for story. I got a little worried when they decided to randomly throw in Sparky, the fairy dog, but he didnt turn out as bad as I thought. Spongebob can be cancelled without a second thought (please just do re-runs of seasons 1-3), but Fairly Odd Parents, keep hanging on!
I do remember this show a lot, and I have a brother who enjoys this show and considers it to be part of his nostalgia. But, honestly, when watching it back again, and thinking about it, it's actually not that good. There are some really good episodes, such as Power Mad, but for the most part, it's just a show that enforces all of the bad stereotypes of cartoons. I don't like the main character either. His voice is really annoying, mostly in the second season to present. I love Tara Strong a lot (Twilight Sparkle is fantastic... just putting that out there), but I'm very sorry. Timmy Turner is an annoying little moron who wants to get away from everyday problems using magic. Also, almost all of the characters are way too over-the-top cliched and goofy. I mean, look at Mr. Crocker, Timmy's parents, Vicky the Babysitter, etc. They're way too over-the-top and have as many running gags as a Phineas and Ferb episode! Ugh! I do like Chester, as he is played by Jason Marsden, and I enjoy a lot of his roles. Also, Cosmo and Wanda are not that bad. Yeah, they're goofy, but they are funny. But still, that isn't enough to save this show. This show is a miss.
Anyone who had ever watched The Fairly OddParents almost 10 years ago knew how amazing this show was. It had good plots, it could be pretty action-packed at times, and it was funny. During that time, it probably could have gone on to become one of the greatest cartoons ever made. Unfortunately, I stress "could have".
This show was supposed to end after season 5, but a year after they initially cancelled Fairly OddParents, The creators decided to bring it back. Well, lets just say what what we got wasn't that good. Once Fairly Oddbaby premiered I knew this show had jumped the shark. And it wasn't even the introduction of Poof. The humor that made this show so good just died with that movie, and the characters did a complete 180 from their initial personalities. Timmy became a spoiled brat, his parents went from caring about him, albeit part-time, to practically not giving a crap about him, and Cosmo became annoying rather than funny. The only people who have remained the same have been Vicky and Mr. Crocker, except Crocker has now gotten more screen time.
The worst thing to come out of the newer seasons is without a doubt that embarassing live-action movie "Grow Up Timmy Turner". I still can't believe that Drake Bell went from Drake and Josh, one of the best shows Nick has ever created, to that abomination.
The Fairly OddParents has unfortunately suffered the same fate as SpongeBob SquarePants. It was a great show that was brought back after being cancelled, and once that happened, the show went into the crapper. If I were rating the show before Poof came along it would be nearly perfect. But alas, the newer seasons have made the show kinda terrible.
This show is awesome! Its been even better with Poof. But the dog kind of made me start disliking the show. No need to add anymore random characters. I mean, what are they gonna add next? A singing chimpanzee? Like seriously Poof was enough. But I love this show and it also made up my childhood along with SpongeBob. Hopefully Nick will keep on with this show for some more seasons.
This show uses a lot of running gags throughout the episode. Half of them can get me to smile and and eighth can get me to laugh. Remy Buxaplenty is snoody bland and British because he's rich. That's another major concern. The show has way too many racial stereotypes. And that wraps up my review.
This show is so cool, I can't believe it's still on after all these years, and I really like how they added poof and foop, episodes with foop in it are funny XD. I gotta say that nickelodeon really did the right thing when they made this show. I grew up with this show and I still really can't believe it's still airing.
It's really sad to see what has become of The Fairly Oddparents. The show was once at the top of its game with its great jokes, excellent lineup of characters, and good plots. Nowadays, the FOP is BARELY getting a laugh from me and the few there are in the episodes are so far and few in between that it makes watching the show unbearable and makes you yearn for the old days when this show was at its peak.
Timmy Turner is a miserable 10-year old kid that secretly has two fairy godparents. Together, they all go on crazy adventures of what happens when something you wish for goes out of control. So how did this show go downhill? Well unfortunately, this show has decreased in terms of quality and the characters themselves have become unlikable, along with a few other things.
For one thing, the plots have been getting pretty boring now and some of them are recycled. Like for example, a recent episode was about Timmy wishing to be the smartest student in class. However, that was already done in another episode where Timmy wished to be the smartest person to beat . If the show isn't reusing plot lines from past episodes, it's now focusing on one of the new characters on the show, Poof the fairy baby, and him being taken to school or fighting over a girl with an anti-fairy baby of himself. Needless to say, these plots not only sound bad, but they are bad.
Speaking of characters, almost every one of them are no longer likable. Timmy was the miserable child who wished for stuff to make his life better and was a pretty kind kid. Now he's become a selfish,
self-centered jerk who abuses his fairy godparents and acts more like a brat. Cosmo was the dumb one, but he had his smart moments as well and was funny. In the new seasons, he's become dumber and he is now more annoying than funny. Wanda was the voice of reason and tried to be more
like a mother figure to Timmy. Now she's been made into a nagging woman who constantly complains about everything and always acts so cynical.
Then there are the two new characters on the show, Poof and Sparky. The addition of these characters are where the show has truly fallen apart. Poof adds nothing to the show since he's only a baby and just looks cute. He's a waste of a character and shouldn't have been made at all. Sparky is just as bad. He's an annoying, irritating magical dog that sounds annoying and tries to be funny, but he uses every tired joke that's been done to death. It's a terrible attempt to save a show that was going downhill and adding them in has only made the show more unwatchable.
Another issue is that this show doesn't follow any kind of continuity at all. For example, when Timmy wants a dog, all the pets he's taken care of, but die are shown except for Eddy, the Gerbil, from the
episode, That's Life. Another example is that fairies never get old so they don't need babies, but yet there are plenty of baby fairies seen at the preschool Poof is in. My question is, why even have continuity if it's going to be completely ignored like that? It creates a lot of holes in the episodes.
The jokes are also another thing that's been getting stale and terrible. Many of the jokes are now repeated so many times in an episode that it overstays its welcome very quickly. Not to mention some of them don't even make sense, like when Cosmo described the pound and turning a dog into a British Pound. Very rarely will you find a joke that is funny or clever and I do mean rarely.
Artwork wise, it still looks pretty good and stays true to the original Butch Hartman style and it is colorful and has some nice visuals. The animation is good as well with characters moving smoothly and it's not choppy.
In the end, the Fairly Oddparents is a show that's long since run its course and is only getting worse and worse now. The addition of the new characters not only make the show badder, but they are not interesting at all, the characters are not likable anymore, save for a few of them, the jokes aren't funny anymore, and the plots are either recycled or boring. I just hope Nick realizes this show has run its course and finally give it the ax. Because this show needs to finally be put to rest before it gets even worse than it already is.
This show was ok but as time went by it started to get worse and worse especially after they made a movie about it, seriously how many more shows are going to get ruined because of worthless movies. :/
Fairly Odd Parents was a show I grew up with from when I was little and a little chunk . I found it funny, the concept itself is unique and different from what I've seen in cartoons and brought something fresh to animation-- especially in its first season. It has became one of Nick's most successful shows. But lately, in the likeness of Spongebob, I've noticed a huge decline in the episodes. Timmy has been becoming increasingly self-centered from being miserable and his wishes are nowadays just for personal gain, focused far too much on Poof's wellbeing, and the new installment of a dog felt rather unnecessary, to me at least. You hardly eve see Vicky in the episodes anymore, which is one of the core reasons for his miserableness in the first place. Sorry, it just lost it's touch for me--- it could be because I'm a teenager now and I'm into an assortment of different things, but nonetheless I feel like it just isn't as good as it was before. The beginning of the series is sweet but when overlooking the episodes overall, by the seasons, it's gotten pretty rough around the edges.
Some Nickelodeon cartoons have a distinct persona about them, whether they be wimpy mliksops (Doug, Hey Arnold) or psychotic nincompoops (Ren & Stimpy) at least they have a reason for being on the air, but as for something like The Fairly Oddparents, all logic & reason gets flushed down the toilet.
Just why would a lackwitted 10-year old boy be given the ability to kowtow to his every whimsy by a couple of IQ-challenged fairies who seem to make things even worse?
This show is far dumber than, let's just say for the sake of argument, WB's Freakazoid or even Animaniacs & for this show, it's their only strong suit.
Steer clear of this show & tune in to something more intellectual, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic on Hub.
First, the plot overview, a ten year old boy has a miserable life, dealing with busy parents and an evil babysitter. But his luck changed when he acquired two fairy god parents. These fairies not only helped him become happy through such hard times, but also grew on him and became his best friends. Through many wacky adventures, you can see he genuinely cares about them, especially in Abra-catastrophe, which is probably the best Fairly Odd Parents movie thus far, where he chooses to reveal their existence, causing them to go away forever, instead of being trapped and used for evil gain.
The show gets funnier and better as it goes on, Channel Chasers was a bit sad at the end as Timmy forgets who his true best friends are and makes the same mistakes as his parents.
A cross over with another popular character, Jimmy Neutron, also made a huge success. However after a two year hiatus, it lost its touch and had very few episodes. Replaced their main villain, Vicky with the secondary villain, Denzel Crocker, whom also lost his touch. Poof started out cute but now he seems like nothing but an annoyance. I give this show a ten because of how it was before Poof came in.
The Fairly Odd Parents. One of the more popular Nick shows about the wacky adventures of a little 10 year old, boy named Timmy Turner who lives with his mom & dad and suffers with the pain and torture by his evil, wicked babysitter named Vicky. Being so tortured his has received the gift of having fairy god parents named Cosmo & Wanda to help Timmy's young life less miserable with their wish granting powers.
My review of The Fairly Odd Parents.
The background art and character design are average. Decent plot line. Still has that retro cartoon feel. Doesn't have the same kind of plot every episode. Good show for Nickelodeon.
Season 6 and forward are poor.
I think this is a great cartoon Butch Hartman created. I just don't know if adding baby Poof to the family was a good or bad idea. Nick should think of more shows like this. Come on Nick give The fairly Odd Parents a chance and leave Spongebob alone for a sec.
To start off with this show is that it's a little insulting if you ask me. Why is this show so popcular than Spongebob? Nothing but a show with a very miserable ten year old child who has fairies who grants wishes for him. Just like a genie! Anyway, I do like the show, but it should stop being popcular. Like other shows, this one is entertaining. Also, sometimes this shows has it's bad ways of production and good ways at least. I have nothing else to say, but this show is good and funny at some times. End of the review.

This show's amazing and funny! Different and oringinl! It's just an amazing show! Way Too Hard to say it's even a little bit bad! I can not stop watching it ever. Yes, I know some people think it's gone a little "Downhill" but i don't listen, Maybe they don't watch it everyday? I also love spongebob with is simaler to this show, So i must of developed a love for this show by watching a different but simalar show! But still, It's different then any other show which is another reason why this show is the best! Thanks to everyone who said that this show RULES, It's just making it get better and better!
As much as I used to enjoy watching this show and when I had an ounce of respect for Butch Hartman, it's STILL AIRING NEW EPISODES, and a lot like "Spongebob Squarepants", the new episodes have lost what made them great; humor, nice plots, character development, etc.
So where did Fairly OddParents go wrong? Well, anyone can tell you that it officially went down the toilet when Poof arrived. Newer episodes are repulsive in every sense of the word, they over-use jokes, and a lot of the humor has bathroom-related dialogue. As a fact, I KNOW THAT NO ONE FINDS THOSE KINDS OF THINGS FUNNY. They're just a waste of time that they SHOULD be writing clever jokes.
One of the only things that hasn't changed much over the years is, you guessed it; Crocker. Mr. Crocker is probably my favorite character because.. well, a teacher that's obsessed with the paranormal that everyone else thinks is a nut-job?? I love those types of characters (for some reason.. .-.) and I think that Crocker is funny as an antagonist.
If you want to watch the show, go right ahead. But only the first couple of seasons! SPARE YOURSELF.
