* "Just Desserts" was originally going to have scenes with fat Vicky, who would have been the fattest person in Dimmsdale from hogging all the dessert. If she was hogging all the dessert, and dessert is the only kind of food around, does that mean Tootie and their parents were starving?
* It's more Fridge Sadness than anything, but since Sparky hasn't appeared ''at all'' this season, and his VA confirmed he wouldn't be coming back, there's a possibility that Timmy had to take him back to the pet store.

** You can wish ''you'' were never born, but we don't know if that can extend to anyone else. Given Jorgen's behavior in "It's a Wishful Life", he might have left the first condition in intentionally to teach kids who make that wish a lesson(not that the lesson he was trying to teach was one Timmy needed to learn, but that's another discussion), but wishing someone else was never born would probably be forbidden for the same reason you cant wish for someone else to be dead.

* What exactly is the show's definition of "True Love"? When he first appears, Vicky claims to "truly love" Chip Skylark, but as soon as she finds out he's broke and has a huge debt, she breaks up with him. That's not true love, that's gold digging, because she only wanted him for his money. So shouldn't Timmy have been able to break them up with magic?
** In "The Odd Couple", Wanda says that Timmy would have to prove that the love between Vicky and Ricky was "fake teen love" rather that true love, but if it was the former, they could "totally rip it apart". Maybe the fairies have to know for sure that it's not true love before they can break them up. In "Boys in the Band", there was no indication prior to Vicky learning of Chip's debt that she just loved him for his money, so magic couldn't be used directly.

** Also when that happens, wouldn't it basically mean Poof will lose the ''godbrother'' he grew up with forever?

** Also a bit of Fridge Brilliance in a sense that Timmy is willing to keep Cosmo and Wanda around, even if it means sacrificing some of his happiness.


Added DiffLines:

** Yeah. The series pays a lot of attention on Timmy possibly having to lose his godparents when he grows up, but what are Cosmo and Wanda going to do when Timmy inevitably eventually ''dies''?

** Season 10 episode "Clark Laser" unintentionally implies this wish was never actually undone with its own bit of fridge horror: Timmy, Dark Laser, and new character Chloe are sent through a wormhole back in time three and a half million years in the past, and the next scene implies they [[spoiler:''lived through the next couple million years in solitude together without aging in the slightest.'']]

* Why does Timmy have to share his fairies with Chloe? Because since Poof is the only fairy baby to be born in 10,000 years it seems inevitable that the fairies are going to end up with multiple godkids as the humans have still been breeding throughout those 10,000 years, at least until they start having more fairy babies to compensate.

* In "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker", it seems a bit cruel for Jorgen to completely nix Timmy's plan to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong on an extremely flimsy excuse... until it later revealed that Crocker's belief in fairies [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve is the source of their power]]. He probably didn't want Timmy to Retgone their only source of power left.

* In "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker," it's revealed that Mr. and Mrs. Turner had actually expected they were going to have a daughter instead of a son. Maybe they had actually wanted a girl, and so were disappointed when Timmy turned out to be a boy? This could be the reason they treat him with such neglect and indifference.

** In one of the movies it's shown that during a time they at least ''tried'' to care for their son, dedicating all their time to Timmy to smothering extremes and filming every awake moment of him. But the very second they realize they can get another person to care for him, they happily leave him with the babysitter and all their dedication evaporates, as if they were doing it because they believed it was what was expected of them, not of genuine affection.

* Cosmo and Wanda being such [[LiteralGenie literal fairies]] could be because they know that if Timmy ever becomes truly happy they'll have to be separated from him and they don't want that to happen, so they deliberately prevent his life from becoming pleasant.

* During one of several attempts by Cosmo's mom to get her son back from Wanda, we get to see flashbacks of Cosmo's past; among other things, we learn that he'd always been "clumsy" with his magic wand and was therefore sent to a special academy to be trained by Jorgen. Of course, Cosmo's hopeless and in addition to being clumsy with magic, [[HistoricalInJoke he also unleashes real cataclysms over human history (the sundering of Atlantis, the destruction of Pompeii, etc.)]] This could all be {{handwave}}d as PlayedForLaughs, if it weren't for the fact that 1) in a later episode, Jorgen refers again to such cataclysms as having been caused by Cosmo, making it canon and 2) Cosmo occasionally shows signs of being way less stupid and clumsy than he normally is; in one episode, he even keeps hinting that MAYBE [[ObfuscatingStupidity he's just acting stupid.]] So... he killed thousands of people AND it wasn't an accident!?
* The infamous "It's a Wishful Life". Think about what Jorgen said. ''Other children have wiped themselves from existence.'' '''Willingly'''.

** Let's take a closer look at the concept of "The Realm of Kids who made the world a better place by wishing they were never born". It's clearly modeled after hell. If it exists, then it is clear that there are already kids in there. And not adults. Kids, who are all under 13. Whose only crime was making the world a better place. It's really depressing when you think about it.

* In "Father Time", when Timmy goes back in time to stop his dad from winning the trophy that he destroys with heat vision, his dad gets sent to dictator school. ''Even after he fixes this, and before he went back in time, someone would have been sent there anyway.'' Who was it, and why haven't they taken over the world (with smiles) either??
** [[FridgeBrilliance The guy who came in absolute dead last, who, without Timmy's dad being severely handicapped by Timmy, would therefore probably be an unmotivated, lazy slob without the drive necessary to take over the world]]; alternatively, it was Bill Gates and he was subtle about it.

This infuriates Chompy who begins chasing the Mayor around. Normally this would be taken as a PlayedForLaughs situation until you realize that we haven't see Chompy's wife and two goat kids since the first season.
* In "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker", Timmy goes back in time three times to see what is wrong with Crocker and hopefully make him nicer in the future. He goes in time three times, from seeing him starting out as a elementary school teacher, then graduating Dimmsdale college, and finally a student in elementary school. However, each of those points also shows his parents and Dinkleberg in this order; moving into their respective houses with a pregnant Mrs. Turner, Dinkleberg breaking up with his girlfriend because the people watching Crocker's presentation on FAIRY GODPARENTS liked his parachute pants instead, and Dinkleberg and Timmy's Mom being childhood friends on a swingset. If Timmy actually SUCCEEDED in having Crocker keep his fairies, then Dinkleberg wouldn't have broken up with his girlfriend, TIMMY'S MOTHER, and forced himself into non-existance.

* in the halloween special, Timmy wishes that you can become whatever you are dressed as. I don't think they mentioned what the boundary is, is it in the suburb or is it across the world; In that case, what about all those people in other neighborhoods dressed as other, more murderous people? For all we know, all the people dressed as insane psychotic murderers are all now insane psychotic murderers, to prey on each other, or the people who had the poor judgment to not wear a costume. And continuing on that, most theme park Halloween attractions enforce a strict no costume rule. Unarmed, innocent people are stuck inside mazes filled with murderous psychotics, or worse, for an entire evening

*** Well, people mostly kept their personalities. Except for the ones dressed as robots. Which makes sense because they would no longer have a brain to fight the urges of their programming, unlike the people dressed as serial killers. Also, everyone was likely temporarily immortal during the time of the wish

* The character Maryann in the episode "Hassle in the Castle". It is revealed she is in the Hall of Infamy because she used Cosmo and Wanda's magic to have Archduke Franz Ferdinand assassinated, thus starting World War I. It gets worse than that: because she caused World War I, she also indirectly allowed Adolf Hitler to rise to power, resulting in World War II. In other words, Maryann has a massive (albeit indirect) body count in the form of military and civilian casualties, POW executions, and Holocaust victims. What's more, because of her actions, nuclear weapons were created, thus starting the Cold War, and eventually, 9/11. You think Vicky is the most evil character in the show? Ha! Think again, at least she doesn't kill! Maryann single-handedly caused many of the modern world's problems (terrorism, nuclear arms races, the divided Korea, economic problems, etc.), making her THE most evil character in the entire series. Even when [[OneShotCharacter she has only appeared once in the entire show]].

* Timmy's behavior in "The Big Fairy Share Scare" has been sited as a major example of his Flanderization because it heavily contradicts his behavior in "Birthday Wish"; in the latter, he willingly loans Tootie his fairies because he felt guilty for skipping her party, in the former, he fights tooth and nail to not have to share his fairies with Chloe. However, there are three differences between the two situations that make the difference in behavior easier to understand.
** In "Birthday Wish", he was only out his fairies for a set amount of time. In "The Big Fairy Share Scare", he'd have to share his fairies every waking moment until he lost them. The fact that he and Chloe live apart would complicate this, as his fairies could be pulled away at any point to grant her wish and he wouldn't know until it happened.
** In "Birthday Wish", the choice to share his fairies was his own. In "The Big Fairy Share Scare", he gets no say in the matter.
** In "Birthday Wish", Timmy saw for himself how miserable Tootie was and how much she could use his fairies. In "The Big Fairy Share Scare", Chloe is depicted as anything but miserable up until the very end, making it hard for Timmy to understand why she needed fairies and making it even more frustrating that he was forced to give up his.\\\
Was his behavior in the latter right? No, he was still a bit of a jerkass. But was it at least understandable? All things considered, yes it was.
