  • GREAT!!!!!!!!

    9.0
    Its is a great example how the fairly odd parents should be started.the first fairly odd parents episode is perfect. Timmy`s babysitter Vicky made him miserble since he was 8. Cosmo and Wanda came to help him with his problem and Vicky gets what she deserves. 10.0 Perfect episode. Too many Timmys is another great example how to should start the fairly odd parents. The second episode you can tell Timmy was not used to his fairies yet. So 10.0 for that episode. The fairly flu is really a normal episode. This can happen randomly but still a good episode. 8.0 for that one. These episodes makes a perfect example how it should start.moreless
  • Pretty good for a pilot(The Fairly Odd Parents) Good episode(Too Many Timmys) Weird episode(The Fairy Flu)

    10
    These three episodes were the days and Timmy's voice sounded much older until they dubbed the original Timmy Turner voice with his current one which completely ruined it i have watched the dubbed episodes of the first ones and pretty good not sure about the third one anyway in The Fairy Flu it was weird Tootie looked strange but sounded the same believe it or not even though it was a different voice actress and Too Many Timmys rocked it was funny when all three of them sung ''Sweet Adoline'' it was dead funny anyway three good episodes and i rate them all 10.moreless
  • What it lacks in drawings, it makes up for in plot and character.

    The Fairly OddParents

    - When I first saw this one pilot episode, I naturally didn't think much of it. But it certainly showed me who's boss when I watched it again a few years later. For the most part, the characters are very good with their assigned roles. Vicky really pours on the pain, Timmy repels with sweet revenge, why even Cosmo and Wanda are quite a riot. My only nitpick, which would show up in later episodes, is that Timmy gave me the impression that he ENJOYED Vicky's abuse.



    Too Many Timmys

    - Ha ha ha! Another laugh riot! Poor Vicky; no matter where she looks, Timmy's right there beside her even after the wish ends. What more can I say?



    The Fairy Flu

    - Now THIS episode was one real trendsetter. Whereas "The Fairly OddParents" introduced us to the main cast, this one presents the first side character in the show: Tootie. Here is where Butch Hartman expands on Timmy's love life AND his life outside the house.

    There are two interesting things to note here other than character design. For one, this is the first time we see Vicky's humane side the way she (almost) stands up for her sister after Timmy's 'spooked' her. Secondly, Tootie seems to have a bigger social life than what's hinted at later on (or maybe Vicky threatened those kids to attend; I don't know).

    Tootie really is such a cute and sweet child, not as hideous as some people would think. In fact, she struck a tune with me the day I first looked up the episode description and has remained my favorite character alongside Timmy ever since. Because of that, this episode was the biggest inspiration for a FOP story I once wrote. Although I felt sorry for the poor boy at the end, you can just tell how much she cares for him.moreless
