The Good Ol' Days
Mom and Dad are going out and they're leaving Timmy with Grandpa Pappy, a grumpy old man who hates anything new and modern. However, if Timmy can get Pappy to at least enjoy babysitting, then Pappy may want to come over all the time -- which means no more Vicky. But every fun thing that Timmy suggests is dismissed as modern hokum. Rollerblades, rock and roll, sour candies. Nothing can make Pappy happy. Until Timmy and his Grandpa watch an old cartoon together. Pappy declares that this is what fun is all about. So Timmy wishes that the world was like a black and white cartoon from the 1930's. Everything around them becomes wacky and zany, from the bouncing buildings and dancing cars, to the silly musical numbers. Cosmo and Wanda's wands even spring to life and run away. While the Godparents take off after their mischief-making wands, Timmy and Pappy enjoy the good life as a couple of millionaires.
Timmy wishes for his society to be more futuristic, like a fictional character from one of Dad's old books. However, this society is filled with robots, who are seemingly harmless, but in reality, are evil. Will Timmy escape from this dreaded society?
Mr. Denzel Crocker
Cosmo/Mr. Turner/Jorgen von Strangle
Chester (2003 -)
Chip Skylark (archive recording)
When Timmy and his grandpa are in the black and white cartoon, we can see a street sign with the names "Ub" and "Iwerks" on it. Ub Iwerks helped create the original Mickey Mouse cartoon, which the current scene strongly resembled.
In 'Future Lost', Timmy tells his dad to come help him defeat the Big Brain. But in the next scene when he's captured, Crocker is with him, not his dad.
Maybe his Dad got lost along the way, or stayed back.
When Timmy throws the book out the window at the end, dinkleburg says,"hey a stevie sparks number 1, this is worth millions."but earlier in the episode when timmy blew the dust off the book it said number 17 if you read closely.
We learn when Wanda gives speeches to Timmy and Cosmo they fall asleep. At the end, we learn that she falls asleep during her speeches too.
During the things Pappy didn't like, you can see that Pappy is trying the pizza. Mom gave Timmy $20 for the pizza, but later in the episode when they're gonna eat something, they do still have the money.
The dollar was already spent.
When Timmy's Dad tells about the comic book, he says, 'Just an average kid who no one understands.' That is part of the beginning of the Fairly OddParents theme song.
The Chip Skylark who's appeared in other episodes is revealed to actually be Chip Skylark III: his grandfather, the first Chip Skylark, sang during Timmy's grandfather's day.
In "Abra-Catastrophe.", Timmy was eight years old and his parents hadn't left the house for eight years, But they left the house in the flashback.
The whole "eight years" thing was a joke, as this is almost impossible.
When Mark gets hugged from other kids shouldn't he act crazy because the Yugopatamians hate and can't stand sweet things like hugging.
Cosmo: I'm going to miss having bread in my head.
Cosmo: I hated being a robot. I had no free will. I was always being ordered around. It was like being married all over again, only with more toast.
(While watching Pokeye with Timmy)
Papi: The generation that was on this show started 3 world wars, 2 police actions and the National Hockey League!
Pappy: Candy was better before, when it didn't make your face implode.
Timmy: Hey whats this sitting on Mom's giant hope chest?
Mr. Turner: Oh that? Thats my tiny box of dreams.
Timmy (Timmy accidentally breaks it) Whoops! Sorry Dad.
Mr. Turner: Oh, thats alright Timmy. My dreams were shattered years ago.
Timmy: How many years ago?
Mr. Turner: How old are you?
Wanda: Maybe this future wish is a good thing.
(the TV turns on)
Chet Ubetcha: I'm Chet Ubetcha saying this is a bad thing! The robots are taking over!
(the laser zaps Chet Ubetcha and a robot of him appears)
Chet U-bo-tcha: This is Chet U-bot-cha saying the robots have taken over. All hail our leader, the big brain. From now on, you sweaty meat puppets serve us.
Timmy: Wow a whole school day in 5 minutes!
Frances: It leaves more time for this!
(Gives Timmy a wedgie)
Sun: Don't stare at me too long, or you'll go blind!
Narrator: Captain Green and the Eco Teens! Solving problems non-violently!
Kid: Let's save the rain forest!
Captain Green: With an eco rap!
Timmy: Okay, this is lame.
Captain Green: Ra-ra-rain forest. Ra-ra -- (Timmy turns the TV off)
Mom: Well, Timmy, say goodbye to Pappy... forever!
Timmy: (dull voice) Yes, I remember Pappy...
Timmy: Just because it's old doesn't mean it's not cool!
Cosmo: That's exactly how I feel about Wanda!
Wanda: Aww. (pauses) Hey!
Cosmo: What's wrong, Timmy? Besides the whole buck teeth, too short for your age thing?
Grandpa Pappy: (to Timmy, in reference to when he was a baby) I liked you better before, when you didn't have those buck teeth!
Mark Chang makes an appearence without Mandie after him.
So Long, Folks! That's all, Folks!
That's all, Folks! is a phrase shown at the end of classic Looney Tunes cartoons.
Future Lost: I Robot
Future Lost is very similar to the movie I Robot. In the movie, the robots were controlled by a central positronic brain called V.I.C.K.I. (Virtual Interactive Kinetic Intelligence). In this episode, the robots even Cosmo and Wanda (disguised as robots), were controlled by a giant human brain.
Future Dimmsdale: The Jetsons
The way Dimmsdale looked like in the future looked exactly the same way the future looked like the show The Jetsons.
Mr. Crocker: Robots are evil!
In Future Lost, the buff future Crocker thought robots are evil and that is similar to the movie, I Robot. Will Smith's character in the movie hated robots and was very suspicious of robots.
Character: Peg Leg Vicky
Peg Leg Vicky is a reference to Peg Leg Pete, an old Disney cartoon villain, one whom Mickey Mouse constantly encounters.
How the characters in the old cartoon are playing animals is a reference to old Mickey Mouse cartoons.
The cartoon that Timmy and Grandpa Pappy were watching was called "Pokeye," a spoof of Popeye. Also, Pokeye ate beets, rather than Popeye's trademark spinach.
Cartoon: Captain Green and the Eco Teens
One of the cartoons that Timmy was watching in "The Good Ol' Days" was "Captain Green and the Eco Teens," which is obviously a parody of Captain Planet and the Planeteers.
