Episode Summary

Smart Attack Dad keeps trying to help Timmy with his homework. But he’s not the brightest dad, so any help he gives does more harm than good. How can Timmy get his dad to stop helping without hurting his feelings? He doesn’t. He completely avoids the subject by wishing that his dad was smart. Now that Dad has the brains of a genius, he home-school’s Timmy and pays a lot more attention to things like Timmy’s goldfish. In all the years that Timmy has had his pet fish, not once has he fed them. Dad concludes that they must be a new breed and sets out to dissect the fish in front of the entire scientific community. Operation FUN Remy Buxaplenty has come home from military school for spring break. All he can talk about is how great his new school is, making Timmy, Chester, and AJ very jealous in the process. Timmy decides they should all get to go to Remy’s fancy academy and wishes for three scholarships. Once the boys get to their new school, they find that it is not quite the paradise Remy described -- it’s the exact opposite. The students have to get up before dawn every morning, all the teachers are drill sergeants, and pets are strictly forbidden which means that Timmy’s pet goldfish (a.k.a. Cosmo and Wanda) are confiscated and placed in storage. This of course was Remy’s plan all along, and now that Timmy can’t get to his God Parents, he cannot wish himself out of this nightmare.moreless

  • A great episode, with Timmy's dad languishing in his thick-headedness, a wish to make things better, a questioning of Timmy's goldfish, then a strengthening of the friedship of Timmy, Chester and AJ, a returning of old nemesis', and the return of Juandimoreless

    This episode was the first one I saw of the new episodes, and quite frankly I loved it. It was funny and sharp and basically everything I love about FOP.

    Smart Attack was great, with Timmy\'s dad\'s stupidity (and apparently cheapness) done exactly right. And when Cosmo protected Wanda from Timmy's dad, it was just such an 'awww' moment.

    Operation FUN is one of my favourite episodes ever. The jokes were plain funny, Cosmo was sweet and funny, and Juandissimo was back in all his glory. Plus, it was nice to see Timmy working with his friends again, and actually appreciating them.

    All in all, I\'d say the new series of FOP isn\'t nearly as bad as some viewers believe it to be.moreless
  • This was a great episode in the series.

    This episode was great and I liked many parts of it. In which in them include the way Remy sent them to military school and that wasn't that good but at least was great and I also liked when that man decided to grow A.J's hair and then cut it was a funny part in the episode. Also the obstacles that Timmy, Chester and A.J did were great and cool in my opinion. The missiles weren't that great or dangerous but the one that had an F in it fell into Crocker in which was the best part in the episode.

    The other episode was a good one too and Timmy's dad looked funny the way he looked like Albert Einstein was great. But what I didn't like was when he wanted to stab Cosmo and Wanda to see them from the inside. His discovery of many things I thought of them as great things that he made.moreless
  • Clever and entertaining. That being exactly what I expect when I watch this show.

    "Smart Attack" is definitely my all-time favorite FOP episode. It's witty and intelligent. It's fun to see Timmy's dad smart and the crazy consequences of it. As the classification says, it's exactly why I watch this show. This episode is the epitome of how creative the writers of FOP really are. "Operation: F.U.N." is an alright episode. Everytime the character Remy is in the show though, everything is so grim and miserable to the point that it's just irritating to watch. There are a few good lines in though and somehow I did manage to enjoy it.moreless
  • Smart Attack: Timmy wishes his father was intelligent, but then he starts noticing strange things about Cosmo and Wanda. Operation FUN: Remy Buxaplenty is back with another evil plot to take Cosmo and Wanda away from Timmy.moreless

    Smart Attack:

    Good Episode, the idea of Mr. Turner being a smarter dad was good. He notices things that everyone should notice about Timmy's goldfish (Cosmo and Wanda), and that is something that should've been included a long time ago.

    As almost every episode, it has funny moments, like when Wanda asks Cosmo to act like a fish and he says: "Moo!"

    or when he says "Stay away from my wife!... I mean, Moo!"

    Great creation.

    Operation FUN:

    This one wasn't as good, because it had a very poor plot. A lot of things were wrong, like for example, Remy used Juandissimo to kill(or try) Cosmo and Wanda, and DA RULES forbid it. Timmy wasn't allowed to bring pets, and Remy was...

    It's just not good.

    I give them an 8.5 (Really great first episode, fairly odd second one)moreless
  • An interesting addition to the series.

    Smart Attack- This was a good episode, although you would have thought that Timmy's dad (seeing as he was turned into a genius) would have figured out Timmy's secret. I guess that his dad is still an idiot on the inside no matter what wish Timmy wishes upon him.


    Operation F.U.N.- Remy is a little brat. I still don't see why he has to get Timmy to lose his Fairy Godparents. I guess every show has to have a few villians. Overall, though, this episode was pretty well put together. It was still a weird episode, though, especially with the hair.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Dad: (Sees the razor) What's this sharp thing? (turns it on) Ahhh! (Drops it on the ground, the razor saws a hole through the ground and he falls through) Eureka! I think I've broken my Eureka!!

    • Cosmo: Geoghraphy, Geology, Geometry. I don't see what the problem is, they all start with a "J"
      Wanda: Here's another "J" word, J-idiot!

    • Dad: And this is a parallel-o-thingy!

    • Mr. Turner: Eureka! That's not only a phrase, but a city in both California and Kansas!

    • Cosmo: Hey! Only Timmy gets to touch the bowl!
      Wanda: You know, this is a giant waste of time. The minute Timmy is alone, we're poofing back to him.
      Remy: You forgot, I know all about fairies and their weaknesses. Like butterfly nets?
      (Cosmo and Wanda try poofing out, but to no avail)
      Cosmo: Ah, oh no, our magic! Where's it gone?!
      Wandisimo: What? Did I hear that the magic is gone between you two?

  • NOTES (6)


    • Announcer: And the award goes to Dr. Gleebenglooben!

      The name "Dr. Gleebenglooben" is a reference to the song "Pretty Fly for a White Guy" by Offspring, in which the phrase "Glooben-gleeben-globben-glooben" is heard before the song begins.

    • Title: Smart Attack.
      The title could be an indirect allusion to Disney show Art Attack.

    • Title: Smart Attack
      This is an obvious spoof of a Heart Attack.

    • Episode Title: Operation F.U.N.
      This makes a reference to the cartoon: Codename: Kids Next Door, in which almost every episode title has "Operation..." in it.

    • Superbrain: This looks like a job for... Superbrain!
      The music that played during this scene was taken from the original Batman series starring Adam West, and the signal in the sky was a parody of the Bat-signal. Also, Superbrain's "This looks like a job for... Superbrain!" quote is a parody of Superman's "This looks like a job for... Superman!"

    • Smart Dad: Appearance
      Smart Dad's appearance closely resembles that of Albert Einstein's.
