  • Halloween Review #12

    Timmy wants to be a jackobot from the Crash Nebula episode, but the rich kids have the only four made so he goes out with a cheap costume and nobody gives him candy. But, when he does get it he has to give it to Vicky. The rich kids have all the candy cause their costumes are real. So he wishes everything was real and scary, but when Mark comes and the jackobots plan to destroy the world, he has to do something. This was a great Halloween episode of "The Fairly OddParents". It wasn't the greatest Halloween episode I've ever seen but it's still enjoyable. I really didn't laugh a lot. I probably laughed like twice and that's it. My score is a little low because Timmy's parents were such jerks by giving Timmy's stuff to the rich kids when they went trick-or-treating at their house, The rich kids were being such jerks, the storyline to this episode was really getting boring after a while, and the episode was a little rushed in the last few minutes plus the ending could have been improved. The song was probably the coolest part of the Halloween episode. Overall, a great Halloween episode of "The Fairly OddParents" but I've seen better Halloween episodes. 8/10moreless
  • It's Halloween in Dimmsdale.

    To Timmy, this years Halloween isn't cool. It's boring. The costumes that he wanted, the cool kids got. And he's stuck with a coring old mummy costume, which is just toliet paper. Cosmo is a janitor and Wanda is nurse, I think I forgot! lol. Timmy wishes that the costumes were real and scary. So, everyone turns into what they are dressed as. EVERYONE. So, Cosmo and Wanda are no longer Fairy Godparents and can't wish Timmy anything. That is really bad, when The Jackobot costumes try to destroy the earth since they are real Jackobots. Fun episode to watch on Halloween.moreless
  • Timmy doesn't like this year's Halloween. The costumes are dull and boring, and there's just no fright in the air! So he decides to change everything with a wish that goes wrong: He wishes that everything is real!moreless

    I watch this every time it goes on. It's a fun-filled Halloween episode that shows the moral: Be careful what you wish for!

    Timmy wishes that all of the costumes were real, so in return, Cosmo and Wanda aren't fairies anymore! With the 4 'rich kids' in cool costumes that can destroy the entire planet, Timmy is forced to think of a plan to stop them before it's too late.

    Now, I don't want to spoil everything so I'll just go on with the review: I never get tired of watching this specific episode because I think that this is one of the best FOP episodes there is!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Wanda was green and Cosmo was pink for a moment.

    • When we see the popular kids at Timmy's door, Veronica has pink eyes. As she's polishing Trixie's costume, her eyes turn blue.

    • When Cosmo and Wanda were cats, Wanda wanted to tell Timmy something. But when her mouth moved, it looked like Cosmo said it instead of Wanda.

      Edit: Actually, the goof was that Wanda was green and Cosmo was pink! Then, when it shows a close up of them, their colours swap abck to normal again

  • QUOTES (17)

    • Timmy: On Halloween, all through the night.
      We should be filled, with fear and fright.
      But I don't see, much here tonight.
      Because everything is so FAKE!
      I want something real and real scary
      Not cardboard, squeaky or clean!
      I want something big, green, and hairy
      Cosmo: Like a frog on a fur trampoline?
      Timmy: NO! It's time to get down to business
      And spook up this boring scene.
      I wish things were real and real scary
      Tonight on Halloween!
      Cosmo and Wanda: Real and scary!
      Timmy: Like a vampire's fangs in the night!
      Cosmo and Wanda: Real and scary!
      Timmy: Like a witch on a broom taking flight!
      Cosmo and Wanda: Real and scary!
      Timmy: Like an unwashed forgotten latrine!
      Cosmo and Wanda: Real and scary!
      Cosmo: Like a zit-covered, hormone crazed teen?
      Teen: HI!
      Timmy: So that's what I want, real and scary.
      So when I trick-or-treat they can see
      That I am a force to be dealt with
      And they better give their candy to me
      I wish we were all real and scary
      I wish this was one freaky scene
      I wish the whole world was real and scary
      Tonight on Halloween!
      Pumpkin: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

    • Yugopatamian King: The earthlings have got a head start on intergalactic war!
      Yugopatamian Queen: What are you going to do honey?

      Daran Norris, who provides Cosmo's voice, plays the character Gordy, a janitor, in another Nickelodeon show.
