  • In Totally Spaced Out is a pretty good episode I really enjoyed the Death Match.

    The episode Totally Spaced Out Was an okay episode. I noticed a mistake though.When Mark Chan said Death Combat he sneazed so it sounded different,but at the end of the match Mark still Says it as if he were sneezing.He didn't say anything about him sneesing at that point.I think the creaters made a goof when thay did that.Out of that is was a good episode I liked when they faught in the Utopian War Arena Timmy's Robot looked stupid.I mean if you can make it to where Mark Chang can transform into that cool cyclone blaster then they should be able to make Timmy's look cooler.moreless
  • Yawn...

    Oh, come on Fairly Oddparents! I practically fell asleep through the whole thing! Well, Totally Spaced Out, here comes Mark, Mark is one of my favorite characters, though, but in this one, I would say boring. Then, The Switch Glitch, soo boring. I would've given it a 0. Vicky got so annoying, especially tiny Vick.
  • Definitely not the best episodes around.

    Totally Spaced Out

    Well, the pathetic Yugopotamians are back for more. Just when Timmy thinks he can discourage his parents from leaving him with Vicky by using Mark's crush to his advantage, they counteract with another weapon: Flappy Bob's. Happy Peppy Gary and Happy Peppy Betty are definitely Vicky clones though opposite in temperament. Only two good points I noted: (A) The other Yugopotamians' reactions/realizations when Timmy and later Mark enter and (B) Two retarded elements cancelling each other out in the end. Well, at least Timmy has something to keep Vicky in line. (Okay, make that three.)

    The Switch Glitch

    This should be a masterpiece in my eyes. Timmy wishes Vicky were younger than him so she'd receive a taste of her own medicine. I must admit being a kid makes her almost as cute as her sister currently is (awwww, just look at her uncertain expression when Cosmo and Wanda execute Timmy's wish). Revenge is a dish best served cold, and Timmy even manages to whisk his godparents back away from Vicky's grasp; Vicky with fairies is the last thing we need around here.

    However, the ending ruins it all. While it's technically true that Timmy wouldn't have Cosmo and Wanda if not for Vicky, he's basically also saying that he ENJOYS being miserable. Does Butch Hartman have to flaunt this? Is misery a hobby? Didn't think so.moreless

    • In The Switch Glitch, Wanda tells Timmy to be nice to Vicky, but near the end, she says to Timmy, "Why are you being so nice to Vicky?".

    • In Totally Spaced Out, when Mark wants to fight with Timmy he calls it Dijifat but he then says that he sneezed and its Death Combat but then when he surrenders he says its Dijifat again.

    • In Totally Spaced Out, when the kids chant, 'you have a funny head!', their lips move only the first time they say it.

    • In Totally Spaced Out, when Timmy and Mark are in the ball pit, there are stuffed animals in it. When Timmy first got there, there were no stuffed animals in the ball pit.

  • NOTES (4)


    • Vicky: Help me, Mark Chang! Your my only hope!
      When Cosmo sends Mark the fake message and Vicky says this,it's a parody of Star Wars: A New Hope, Where Princess Leia's message says "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Your my only hope".

    • Get Ready For This: Music
      When Mark and Timmy were in the arena, a parody of the song Get Ready For This plays.

    • Carmen Miranda

      Cosmo's appearance at the end of the episode when he sings his version of the "Cucaracha" song, is similar to Carmen Miranda's image, complete with the floral dress and the hat filled with fruits.

    • Gary and Betty are clear allusions to those peppy and happy entertainers Donny and Marie Osmond

    • Near the end of The Switch Glitch, the messenger who reassigns Cosmo & Wanda to Vicky says "Inconcievable!" similar to the way actor Wallace Shawn says the same word in the film The Princess Bride.

    • Totally Spaced Out: Death Combat
      'Death Combat' is a reference to the popular video game franchise Mortal Kombat.
