Episode Summary

EDIT
Wishing Well
AIRED:
Timmy's been running Cosmo and Wanda ragged so Jorgen takes him to "Wishing Well", a state of the art rehabilitation facility where he can learn to wish less and be more independent. He meets two other kids with fairies and together they battle their darkest fears, escape from precarious situations…and make breakfast, all without wishing. In the end, they learn independence only when they band together to escape, which they do without any fairy assistance whatsoever. But escaping wasn't part of Jorgen's plan…or was it? Either way, it worked!moreless

  • A rare rare oasis.

    Probably the best episode of Seasons 6,7 and 8 combined. It almost, just almost felt like an old episode. Even if the premise was Timmy overwhishing Cosmo and Wanda, it wasn't presented as malicious, just a predictable outcome of having his fairies for so long. It was nice to see Cosmo take up so much responsability with Poof and the wellbeing of his wife, and a lot of the scenes in which all three were together were cute. No eye-rolling comments this time! The other kids were likeable, their fairies were likeable and heck, even Jorgen was kind of back to his old self. I loved it and consider one of the few salvegeable episodes of this show since Season 4.moreless
  • Well, it was better than most of the recent episodes anyway.

    This episode was one of the best in the season, in fact, the only part I didn't like was the beginning. Timmy overwishes and tires out Cosmo and Wanda as Timmy and Poof enjoy the mayhem that happens. When Jorgen points this out, he takes Timmy to a military school called "Wishing Well" that looks like a hotel, but is really a boot camp! Timmy meets two other kids there, one is Molly, a gothic girl who has a negative attitude, and Dwight, a nerdy kid who fears a lot of things. Jorgen then makes the three go into a funhouse where their top biggest fears are with fruitcake launchers strapped to their feet. Meanwhile, Cosmo, Wanda, and Poof miss Timmy badly and try to get him to escape. The funniest parts of this episode was the fruitcake launchers (especially when Jorgen said "You wish!" and then all three fruitcake launchers shot fruitcakes at him), when Poof had his poop explosion in the castle, and when Timmy tried to bake pancakes. This episode was one of the better ones in the season and there should be more like this one.



    FINAL GRADE: B+moreless
  • It might be lots of yelling, but, overall, it actually gives out a good message.

    This has got to be the worst episode this week. But, dosen't mean it's good.



    Timmy had been overwishing Cosmo and Wanda till they have a fatality. Poof, however, seemed very satisfied. Then, Jorgen sees Timmy with this disorder,, then whisks him away to a wishing facility, aptly named Wishing Well. There, Timmy meets 2 kids named Molly (not sure of her name) and Dwight, who also got to wishing dolts. Then, Jorgen forces the 3 to not use wishes on varisous task. Meanwhile, Cosmo and Wanda can't stop Poof to crying.



    In the end, the kids graduate by facing their fears. Overall it was good, but... what made it the worst episode in this week was all the yelling. Are they afraid? Scared? Confused? Stop Yelling! But, still, it's a good episode.moreless

    This episode was the best of the season. Better then all the episodes of this season. I loved it. finnaly timmy gets what he deserves because hes been treating cosmo and wanda like crap. There was nothing wrong with this episode and for some reason even if it was only a 15 minute episode it seemed longer then that



    The creators are realy doing a great job with these new episodes. This episode felted like an episode from an earlier season too me. if you read the description of this episode it dosent seem like much but if you actually see it it is very good. i give this a 10/10moreless
