** thetoonamirose: I haven't seen the episode yet with exception from a clip on MTV's site, but I saw the opening and it was baaaaaad, it was cropped up horribly with clips from the aformentioned... clip and dubbed over verses from the theme with a two-person chorus instead of the whole chorus along with Timmy and Cloe (but I'll admit, the lyrics Timmy sings cracked me up); Nick should have let this show die when they had the chance.

** supernintendo128: Every time I think that this show has hit rock bottom, it always finds a way to dig deeper, in this case with the introduction of Chloe, whose very existance is a blatent slap in the face to continuity. The single worst part of the episode is when after all of the build up for how [[MarySue annoyingly perfect]] she is, they then try to haphazardly explain why she has fairies towards the end while somehow managing to contridict the rest of the episode. Near the end, it is revealed that [[spoiler: some of her actions that mean well end up making things worse off, like when she pulled a splinter out a monster's foot, only for said monster to start attacking the town,]] serving as a flimsy reason to justify giving Chloe fairies while every other aspect of her life is perfectly fine. I give up.
** VulgarProboscidean: This is probably my least favorite Fairly [=OddParents=] episode for a number of reasons, but for me to pick a DMOS it would probably be the fact that Poof is nowhere to be found in this episode and not even mentioned, Sparky is kind of understandable because of his poor reception among fans in Season 9, but Poof had already became a notable cast member since his debut (this was already a problem with him randomly disappearing during Season 9 episodes), the fact the Foop appears in the episode doesn't help either.

* {{Zeanobia}}: "Love Struck!" is nothing but a big middle-finger to LGBT societies! Just because all women are separated, there's almost no love left? And one single straight pairing is enough to power up cupid all of sudden? The moral is supposed to be that love is important, but I feel too offended by it's homophobic implications to even notice that asoep. What does it mean when {{Ladyland}} equals a void anyway?

* fluffything: ''Fairly Oddparents'' is one of those shows that has moments that are terrible, but usually they're not downright offensive. I say usually because this is one of those downright offensive moments. Namely the (in)famous episode known as "Twistory". Why is it a DMOS and why is it offensive? Because it manages to insult two (Count em! Two!) countries at the same time. The episode basically boils down to Timmy wishing he could interview some of the Founding Fathers (In this case George Washington, Ben Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson) for his report on the American Revolution. It starts out funny enough (Though, Washington's obsession with chopping wood was nothing short of obnoxious), but it gets ugly when Timmy's wish changes history. And, here, folks, here is where we enter the DMOS zone. The alternate history Timmy accidentally creates is pretty much a world where the USA remains a British colony complete with stereotypical Cockney accents, bad hygiene, and ''no advancements in technology since the 1700s''. Wow, just...wow. I didn't even make this episode and I still want to go up to every British person in the world and go "I'm so sorry this episode exists". It's no wonder Nickelodeon rarely (if ever) airs it during reruns of the show.

* Tropers/FOPTroper: No list would be complete without the infamous It's A Wishful Life, a very demented subversion of ItsAWonderfulPlot. Basically, the entire episode states that Timmy is responsible for all the bad things in his life, in his community and even the world. In other words, the world would be better off if Timmy was [[DrivenToSuicide no longer around]]. The fact he nearly erase himself is very disturbing. The episode tries to fix this by stating the reason for this was to teach Timmy a lesson; earlier in the episode, he was doing favors for people, and they were not simply ungrateful, they were being a JerkAss about it. Timmy, though, is the one who needs the lesson that you should not do good things for praise.

** Tropers/MelancholyUtopia: I would have accepted the moral a lot better if the people Timmy helped were just apathetic to his deeds ("Yeah, not what I expected, but it's okay, I guess."), but, like the first person said here, the problem was that they were ungrateful jerks, which is a perfectly understandable reason to get frustrated. Keep in mind, none of these people know he can get what he wants on a whim through magic. From AJ's point of view, Timmy must have spent a lot of money on thay expensive computer, but it's not advanced enough according to AJ and still uses it as a doormat because apparently he doesn't give a shit about Timmy's feelings. Then again, if they had been apathetic, it wouldn't have been good enough a reason to wish he was never born (which was already blown out of proportion to begin with), thus showcasing what a mess this episode would have been either way.

* Tropers/anoni: To be honest one sign that this show has overstayed it's welcome is "Open Wide and Say Ahhh!". Basically, Timmy has to get his tonsils removed. For the mandatory conflict, Vicky is the doctor operating on him. Instead of a Tonsilectomy, he's getting a "Twerp-ectomy", which apparently not only removes his tonsils, but his will to live! That's right! Vicky plans to perform a surgery on Timmy that will kill him. Timmy's parent, even dumber than usual, sign him up for it because it will give them 5 nights in Hawaii. Have fun mourning your dead kid in Hawaii. There's also the fact that what kind of hospital will allow such a procedure to be performed? By the way, remember when Vicky's best weapon was blackmail and actually became concerned if something may have happened to the kids she babysat, just so she wouldn't get in trouble? The writers don't.

* Tropers/{{AustinHinton}}: This Tropers personal DMoS is the Season 9 episode "Fairly Odd Pet". The basic plot is that Timmy wants a dog (because wish-granting fairies just arn't enough, right?), but his parents refuse to let him get one, despite Timmy having pets in prior episodes (Eddy anyone?). So what does Timmy do? Set off his moms allergies to cats, and as someone who is very allergic to certain substances, this isn't a fun experience. But the worst is yet to come, Timmy and co. get a "fairy dog" Sparky. And he is the most obnoxious, self-centered (he dosnt care that Timmy nearly dies, twice) {{Jerkass}} in the show's history. Not only is his voice painfully bad, his whole character boils down to "I'm a dog, it's ok if I do bad dog stuff, 'cause I'm just a dog". I held out hopes for this show, even during its darker days, but "Fairly Odd Pet" was a punch to the metaphorical stomach.

** My personal DMOS was the BigLippedAlligatorMoment with the Anti-Fairies in the middle of "The Great Fairy Share Scare." For context, Timmy has just wished Fridays out of existance, and [[TheScrappy Foop]] shows up. He claims that Timmy [[RetGone Retgonning]] Fridays will bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Cue the entire Anti-Fairy population attacking Dimmsdale. My problem is this: If there are no Fridays, there are, logically, no Friday the Thirteenths. As most of us know, Anti-Fairies can only show up on Friday the Thirteen, so how is it possible for an entire swarm of Anti-Fairies to be present in Dimmsdale? Apparently, it's because the Big Wand charges on Fridays and also protects Dimmsdale from the Anti-Fairies. My WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief can only go so far, people. Personally, I regard Anti-Fairies as SeriousBusiness due to [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter their interesting concept and potential,]] so this AssPull was enough to make me want to ShootTheTelevision. ~Commander Peepidot

* [=Dr_Wrecker=]: well, probably the hardest question is which of season 10's episodes is the worst? because there's a lot of [[IdiotPlot stupid and emotionless plots]] and [[{{Asspull}} Asspulls]], cruel and meaningless humor , more Flanderization than before, Timmy became [[BadassDecay less Badass]] and more [[TookALevelInJerkass Jerkass]] and [[TookALevelInDumbass Dumbass]], and of course, The Horribly written character [[ParodySue Chloe]], and like what [=PhantomHeartless5=] said: "there's the tired RunningGag of Cosmo and Wanda losing their wands for the umpteenth time so Chloe would be the only one to save the day". anyway, my [[DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck DMoS]] is about "The Return of the L.O.S.E.R.S.", It isn't the worst episode, but it was one of the worst [[{{Asspull}} Asspulls]] in the show, the episode was an awful parody of WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, the plot is [[TheLoad Cosmo and Wanda]] are going to an event in Fairy World and Timmy's enemies: [[CreatorsPet Mr. Crocker]], [[TheScrappy Foop]], and [[Main/VillainDecay Dark Laser]] as L.O.S.E.R.S., planning to revenge of him. but what will make the plot so funny? Oh Yes, one more Flanderization... and who's the victim? sadly... it's Timmy, the writers make him literally clueless, he can't walking Or even wearing his clothes by himself! the L.O.S.E.R.S. was totally like WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes's villains, and Chloe was like BugsBunny toward them... Y'know, i think i should quit watching this fucking show. it was worth to watch in past (seasons 1-5), but now, it DarthWiki/RuinedForever.

** Tropers/{{ngh93}}: Even the writers abandon all logic. They act like Timmy is Vicky's ONLY target, when they know full well Vicky was a babysitter before she knew Timmy; logically, her not being his babysitter means she's still ''A'' babysitter, just some other kidsí problem. Worse still, every time Timmy wishes Vicky was another profession she becomes even more evil than she is, if that's even possible, she goes from terrorizing a low level job, to the mayor, to the president, to the dark overlord of everything that breathes. Finally in a "heroic sacrifice" really just the worst usage of status quo ever, Timmy wishes Vicky was his babysitter again and everything goes back to normal. Timmy's "sacrifice" of having Vicky remain his babysitter isn't heroic, it's extremely sad and depressing, and kids can easily take this as meaning you should let bullies bully you for the greater good. I know that isn't what the episode was trying to teach, but that's what it implies.

* ading: Originally, I posted "It's A Wishful Life" as my DMOS, but then I remembered the episode that convinced me the show really had jumped the shark: "Vicky Gets Fired". Timmy's parents fire Vicky, which would have been interesting, but it was done in an incredibly stupid way. They see a video of Vicky torturing Timmy, and what do they do? Completely ignore it, until they see Vicky erasing the tape they were saving for their reality contest. They even call that stupid tape "the most important thing in their lives". [[BigWHAT?! WHAT?!]] So basically, they don't care if their son was killed?! Just... why? What happened to this show?
