This show was very funny as I grew up, but they never knew when to stop. When they ran out of ideas, they started throwing new characters in to fill the sad gaps of missing humor. Now its a pretty eclipsed show, you barely see an ad or an video game, nor a kid wearing a t-shirt. The show lost its spotlight. It used to be one of Nick's best cartoons when I was a child.
This show was made by the great Butch Hartman. This show used to be a great but now the characters have been flanderized beyond belief. Timmy has lost likability and you know a big part of the show was Timmy learning a lesson but you cant keep that plotline for 13 years. And now they're getting rid of all the side characters just to add new characters that are annoying and pointless. We don't see much of Chester AJ Sanjay Elmer (fun fact that's Butch Hartman's real name), Francize Dark Laser, Chip Skylark, The Crimson Chin, The pixies, or anti Faries besides Foop. Timmy has gone to a point of no return. So is Cosmo and Timmy's Parents. Wanda is naggy. Poof and Spark are annoying. Vickie has become to insane and has lost interest. The only character that I enjoy is Crocker because he is still wacky and zany as always. However his episodes sadly have his annoying mother and the him arguing with her has gotten old. Also since he is the villain he has become a punching bag. Its sad such a shame such a great show with a great cast could become such a horrible show. Also don't even get me started on the live action movies. They had so many chances to end it. Fairly Odd Baby, Wishology, Fairly Odd movie Grow up Timmy Turner, and Fairly Odd Pet. This show needs to be cancelled. But you know what the sad thing is. This one of the top 5 modern Nick shows. That's really sad. I'm done!
This has got to be one of the most vapid shows today and well past its prime. It started off as charming, funny, and overall entertaining but now it depends on overused plots, jokes, and characters. Overall it is a rotten pain to watch and even seems to send the message that stuff like child neglect and abuse is amusing. Humorous is one of the last thing to describe it. It started off with Timmy making well mannered but short sighted wishes that had hilarious results to a total brat who now only really cares about himself. He deserves to lose his fairy godparents. Plus they added a baby who now takes up the bulk of the episodes and most recently added a stupid dog that is no different. I could go on but others have done it before and better than me.
I really wish Butch Hartman would realize that this show is annoying and repetitive with deserved abandonment. He should focus on something else like how to revise and renew Danny Phantom for that show still has loads of potential. I never was a fan of this show, but if I was just reviewing the first few seasons I would rate it from a 4-6 but the newest seasons, episodes, and characters caused me to rate it way lower. I regret that I can't give it a negative rating. This is one of the most overrated shows out there. It's a chore to watch now.
The Fairly OddParents was once a great show. It has clever plots, interesting characters, and funny episodes all the way around. I'm not sure whether it was the introduction of Poof, or if it was something else, but the show has just lost its charm. Too much of the attention focuses on Timmy's Dad or Mr. Crocker. Whatever happened to characters such as Chester, Trixie, Tootie, for crying out loud, what about Vicky? She's still in the theme song as the main antagonist. And, of course, the characters have been dumbed down to all hell. Timmy got stupider, so did Cosmo and Timmy's Dad, and Wanda got extremely boring. Poof? I don't really know about him. Speaking of which, where is he? He hardly appears any more. Sparky. Don't even get me started on Sparky. He is annoying, irritating, disgusting, everything that is bad. And they keep using the same jokes over and over and over again every single episode! I'm not saying the show is TERRIBLE, it still has decent plotlines, okay characters, and mildly amusing episodes, but I'm just saying that the show in general has gone rolling down the mountain of good. That's all I have to say. 6/10.
This show was a really good cartoon until 2008 when the baby came the show went down hill Some people say why do you hate poof he's just a baby? well hes not hes just a waste of animation space. for the next season was horrible it was all about poof all he ever did was cry and poop and be annoying. and the episodes after that they just rushed and made it worst. Then the writers knew that the show was going down the hill so they added a dog it was the worst idea ever. So when that season which i call hell they made really stupid episodes Timmy got more spoiled and greedy and they got rid a Vicky the source of his fairy's. and the next season OH GOD horrible it was the worst Ever. Thanks to the dog and baby if they make a movie when they both die that would be cool but now the shows ruined better luck calling it magic full house just cancel it its over its ruined.
I used to love the Fairly Odd Parents, especially the older episodes! My favorite episodes are Super Bike, Channel Chasers, Ruled Out, That's Life and Self Life (the one with Tom Sawyer)
This show was so great. Not only was it funny, but it was deep, funny and educational as well. There was always a moral in each and every episode of this show. Like in Channel Chasers, it was about what happens when you grow up in life and in Ruled Out, Timmy wished for his parents to care less.
This was the golden years of the Fairly Odd Parents!
Now when the Fairly Odd Baby movie aired in February 2008, and when Cosmo and Wanda's baby was born, the show began to decline and the show just became really really stupid!
It seems like now every episode revolves around and about Poof and nothing else and the dumb ass things Poof does. Have you people ever noticed that none of the original characters like Chester, . Elmer or Trixie ever appear on this show today at all?
Also, Timmy went from being a really really nice kid to a selfish spoiled brat who bitches out of his ass when he doesn't get what he wants.
Cosmo went from being kind of dumb, but smart and clever. Now he is just completely stupid and annoying and not like a funny stupid. Like dumb as a post kind of dumb.
Wanda went from being a role model to Timmy and a caring woman to a naggy old lady who bitches out of her ass about every little thing and nags everyone about everything.
I never see the other characters anymore. Like Francis (the scool bully) you never see him anymore. I hardly ever see Chester or the smart kid . or Timmy's other friends on this show anymore, Trixie, Elmer, Sanjay or any of them) either. None of the original characters appear on this show anymore. You know why?
Because every damn episode revolves around Poof or Mr. Crocker, but 75% of the time, it is about Poof.
Secondly, The plots are getting worse and worse. It is the same crap over and over again. Timmy gets into a dumb situation, Poof does something ridiculous, Cosmo acts like a moron and Wanda just bitches and complains at Timmy for every little thing. Whatever crap happened is gone and there is always a lame gag at the end.
It seems as though The Fairly Odd Parents is going down the same road as Spongebob is. Getting worse and worse in quality.
They got to end this show already because it is not worth it anymore. What is the point of keeping it on? Hardly anyone watches this show anymore. I go to a summer YMCA camp and not once, do I ever hear my friends or any kid talk about this show anymore. It's popularity has declined significantly in my opinion. Around and about you never people talk about this show and be like "Oh Louis, did you see the Fairly Odd Parents last night?" "Oh yeah!!!" "You remember how dumb Poof acted?" "buh buh buh"
Plus, you never see the merchandise of this show around anymore either. Like I go into stores everyday and not once have I ever saw Fairly Odd Parents merchandise in the last 5 years or so. Probably because people have realized how dumb the show is getting, so people quit watching it. Why is this show on if no one is watching it? You know why? Because, Nickelodeon does not care about the viewers at this point and all they care about is profit. As long as they are making money, they do not care and they will keep garbage on their network going, because that is what it comes down to in a nut shell. Money!
They need to end this show already. It should have ended 5 years ago, but it didn't and that is what bad about it.
The writers and animators are running out of ideas and the show is deteriorating and it is sad actually because the Fairly OddParents is such a good show and it stinks to see it just dying and dying, but never officially dying! I can just see it will be cancelled soon because of a non-existent audience because already the show has become non-existent (in my point of view) So who knows.
Do not watch any of the new Fairly Odd Parents (2008-present) unless you want to lose all of your intelligence levels. Watch the classic, gold episodes of the show (2001-2006) and do not even bother watching the new garbage episodes because they are not worth your time. Period.
The title of this review speaks for it's self. "Great Show!" Until Poof showed
This show has went through the same path as spongebob, though fortunetly, the cutoff point of the good and bad episodes is later in 2007, the bad begining with season 6 in 2007! Can't beleive its still running, overall
season 1-5, 10/10
season 6 thorugh present 2/10 so that gives it an overall 6/10

In the beginning, FOP was one of the Nickelodeon greats just like Spongebob. When it got cancelled after its fifth season but when it returned in 2008, things started to reach the end. When Poof was introduced, the show got stupid, the new characters were shocking and the gags are now creepy and shocking. When the fairly odd pet came on the show in 2014, it reached its low point. Next to todays spongebob episodes, the series went from crazy laugh out loud humor to a dark world where everyone is annoyed. Its more focused on Poof than it is on Timmy. Foop is an a"". The characters are stupider, Cosmo is dumber, and Mr Turner is plain creepy. Get rid of Poof, get rid of the pet, and Bring Back the classic FOP we used to love. :(
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.
UPDATE: Isn't it odd that Poof sounds just like Timmy? Man, that is some freaky shit. (Note the sarcasm)
This show ran out of ideas the second show. They think of anything they can make stupid. What they do is they think of some event and then they find a way to make everybody not want to do it or watch it. This show is way too old. Shut this show down.
What happened to this show? Back in Seasons 1-5 it was great with it's likeable charters, funny jokes and overflowed creativity. But ever since they aired that Fairly Odd Baby Movie, it's just not as good as it used to be. The series was canceled at the end of Season 5, but Butch Hartman decided to bring it back, which wasn't really a great idea. FOP is about an average 10 year old kid named Timmy who owns two fairy odd parents (disquised as pet goldfish) who grant him wishes that wind up to cause trouble in which they must fix while dealing with villians. The premise is creative, but nowadays in the recent episodes it just doesn't live up to its creative premise anymore.
Timmy is the average miserable kid that gets picked on and made fun of, but despite that, he was kind hearted and knew that magic wasn't the only thing that matters. But he basically went from that to a selfish brat who acts like a jerk. Cosmo was the dim-witted one in the group, but he knew when it was time to get serious, but now, unfortunately, that doesn't happen here, and he's rather annoying than funny, but I'll give him credit because it at least seems like he's trying to be a comic relief. Timmy's Parents went from loving him to becoming inattentive to their son Timmy by not giving a crap about him. Then there's the newer fairy Poof who was added in 2008 as part of the Fairly Odd Baby Special, who is pretty much a waste of animation for the show and is just there to be cute and say "Poof!". The villians aren't even trying now to capture Cosmo, Wanda and Timmy.
The plots nowadays seem to center too much around Poof and nothing much else, and it gets boring because Poof doesn't really serve that much purpose on the show whatsoever. They also are starting to get repetitive because a majority of the Post Season 6 plots are recycled and mainly center around rehashed plotlines from the older seasons.
The humor nowadays is just rehashed gags that they use more then enough in one episode to th point were it's not funny anymore and it's just annoying.
The artwork and animation are still really good, with characters moving smoothly and the artwork looking colorful and matches the atmosphere, but that's about the only thing tolerable about the new episodes.
FOP was once a brilliant and creative show Nickelodeon once had to offer, now it's just a former shell of its glory.
The older episodes were just LEGENDS. However, when they introduced us to Poof, the show went down. Poof is pretty much the closest relative to Caillou. In fact, he acts just like him. The repeats get kinda boring after a while of watching it. Most of the movies on this show are crappy, with an obvious exception of Channel Chasers, which was a great TV movie. Despite all these flaws, I still think this show is still good today.
I think the show went down the toilet when they added Poof. If I were the writer I wouldn't have thrown in Poof and Sparky. I like seasons 1-5 more than seasons 6-?. Even the fan fiction (which I wouldn't recommend people not read it depending on your age. The reason why is because the wishes were more awesome and extreme. The show now : ( the show back then : ).
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.
Despite what all these people are saying, this show is actually pretty great. Timmy doesn't just love the magic, he loves his fairies too. Some people think the addition of Poof and Sparky ruined the show but it actually made it better. Poof is a great character and Sparky is pretty good too. I honestly don't know why everyone's complaining about as this show is still great.
The Fairly Odd Parents was a part of my childhood and I wanted to grow up and remember it forever, but now I never want to see it on air again.
the show use too be so charming and amazing but slowly there was a decline in quality
I'm going to split the review up into 4 categories: Story, Characters,episodes,humor,
The story is about a 10 year old boy named Timmy Turner is neglected by his parents, failed by his teacher, beat up by bully Francis, constantly rejected by his love Trixie Tang and is abused by his mean babysitter Vicky. Timmy is greeted by Cosmo and Wanda (and later their baby Poof) who are Fairy God Parents who grant his every wish.
Timmy started out as a kid people could relate to He was nice and caring but still had flaws and faults. by season 4 and 5 Timmy had developed into a mean, inconsiderate jerk, who only loved his fairies for their magic. He was selfish and irresponsible and an all around unlikable brat.
Cosmo and Wanda: Cosmo and Wanda use to have such a loving relationship but now all Como does is insult Wanda's Nagging and insult her weight (like any aging marriage) He also did this in the first 3 seasons but usually once every 10 episodes and as a one time joke. Cosmos' character was always stupid but now he has become too dumb to live and Wanda was the smart, voice of reason but now she is just a complaining Nag.
Poof: a space waster with no personality who hogged all the spotlight when he was first born.
Vicky: The main antagonist of the show barely shows up anymore and when she does, she is some kind of psychopathic demon child. in the older episodes she was literally just a mean teenager (I'm fine with both but I just wanted to point it out)
The show has decided to now focus on a parody character called Darth Laser (who I hate) and Mr Crocker (who has somehow turned into a psychopath like Vicky)
Timmy's parents went for ignoring Timmy to outright Neglecting him.
Tootie went from a girl who had a crush on Timmy who we could sympathizes with because she was a Vicky's sister and went through her torment more than Timmy. Now she is one of the villains who will do anything to make Timmy hers
all of Timmy's friends an schoolmates (That I actually liked) never show up anymore. they added a lot of depth and life to Dimmsdale because the show is really boring when it focuses on the main 4.
Next is the infamous Sparky. He is one of the worst characters in the entire series. He is a fame hog who makes awful jokes and the only person he interacts with is Timmy.
The episodes were terrible in season 5 which ultimately led to its end but Nick wanted to revive the series which ended up ruining it. after the stupid baby was born, every episode was about it and Cosmo and Wanda stopped giving Timmy extreme wishes. Another thing that saddens me is the lack of continuity. If I had to chose the worst episode ever It would be a tie between "It's a wishful life" and "Timmy's secret wish"
It's a wishful life (the episode where Timmy wished he was never born) almost feels like suicide supporter because they most likely mentally scared Timmy (leading to his jerk-ass personality later on) The moral of "doing good deeds not for praise but because it is the right thing to do" is a great moral but is contradicted by the stupid episode and makes it meaningless. The creators even apologizes for making this.
Timmy's secret wish caused way to many continuity errors. cop out ending and the wish had way to plot holes in it. They ruined a good Danny Phantom nod by not adding Clockwork into the episode. It's secret things like these that make me loves shows but the fairly odd parents lacks this.
HUMOR: The show is still funny but it has gotten pretty mean and sadistic.
Overall this show is awful and like Spongebob should end.
So happened to this show? The dog came and now what? I loved fairly odd parents when I was very young. Now they just slap some new character and they think it's okay? That's not all. It's repetitive. "Oh Look its against the rules!!" Fuck the rules, and Timmy needs to understand that fairy god parents aren't slaves. He doesn't love cosmo or wonda. He only loves their magic. And now there's a dog? Wtf is going on?
Just like Spongebob; love the older episodes, despise the newer episodes, both shows have been on the air for far too long, overused plot ideas, boring, and the characters have awful mixed personalities. They only seem to play the older Fairly odd parents on Nick toons, but rarely. It's a real shame.
I didn't mind Poof being introduce because I do like him, but why Sparky? He's just annoying to me. The newer episodes are getting worst too. I also didn't like how they changed Cosmo from being dumb but also smart to just utterly stupid. It's not like I'm giving up on it because I still like characters like Jorgan and Crocker, but this show is not like it once was.
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...
