** Crocker is quite an angsty character, if you think about it and [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds he may have just wanted to end it]] therefore he gave them more dessert in hopes that it would. Also, I think he and Norm would both go well to the song "In The End" by LinkinPark, which should give some insight on the angst. Basically, Crocker was very angry and upset at the world and desired its ending.

** They just wanted to make a BillyJoel reference (one of his most well-known albums is called ''Glass Houses'', taken from the old saying "Don't throw stones at glass houses"; also, the house Joel lived in was made of glass, if the house on the album's cover really was his house).

** I haven't seen any of the more recent episodes, but it could be that he's in school or being babysat by Mama Cosma while they're taking place.


Added DiffLines:


* What exactly would Chloe's relationship with Timmy be? I'd think he would just call her his "godsister", but then again, he already calls Poof his "godbrother", and Poof is the biological son of Cosmo and Wanda, whereas Timmy and Chloe are both their godchildren.

**And where does the baby come out of?



* In the episode "Beddy-Bye", when Timmy made a wish that people didn't have to sleep, everybody got really irritable and tired. But if they didn't have to sleep, why would they feel the effects of not having had slept?

* Cosmo and Wanda went only 24 hrs. without granting wishes and they exploded, but Norm exploded in two weeks.

\n**It wasn't to make them fatter. He said that as a joke. He was just giving them desserts as a treat and jokingly saying it would make them fat.

** Cosmo and Wanda probably were suffering from an ear problem because of the loudness of the video games so they heard it wrong or ThePowersThatBe were [[SevenDeadlysins lazy]].
** He obviously meant the theoretical "you" ("anybody at all, nobody in particular"). For example, "To make an omelet, ''you'' have to break a few eggs" -- that "you." Other languages actually have different words for you (singular), you (plural), and you (theoretical).
*** Regardless of what he meant, he said 'self', even if any player in the game can't wish themselves' out, there should be nothing keeping anyone from wishing someone 'else' out.

** I personally think the reason only Fairies, Anti-Fairies, and Pixies compete in the games is because the games were created to settle and argument between those three groups. Genies and such weren't invited because they simply weren't a part of the argument that brought the games to life.

** Trixie does display remarkable periods where she has emotions for Timmy. The main problem is that Timmy, being the nice kid he is (and no, that is not sarcasm) will help Trixie and Tootie equally when they need it.

** Never thought of that, but yes that is a huge case of them failing logic forever and having to repeat a grade.

* Foop. If he was going to be born, why did Anti-Cosmo help HP kidnap Poof in the special when he would have his own super powerful baby? Why did Foop's birth happen a long time after Poof's? Is Anti-Wanda bearing Poof instead of Anti-Cosmo just another example of the 'Antiness' or is is an AuthorsSavingThrow? Most importantly, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking why did they screw up the established naming convention? It should be Anti-Poof, not Foop!]]

** First, there's a considerable lack of chronology among episodes. Yes seasons tend to be chronological, and mini-plots may reference past episodes in the plotline, most other episodes are stand-alone with no real chronological aspect to them. Second, why would he reveal a fairy that he loves?
Third, it's not uncommon for costumes that are life-like to be considered unrealistic when you first see them.

** No you're not. Simple answer: it's [[CrapsaccharineWorld Dimmsdale]]. AdultsAreUseless, so chances are CPS is to. And even if they did intervene, they would probably be worse.

** Some episodes have an aesop that doesn't really match the reason for the wish. But that aside, it was because Timmy thought he was powerless that he made the wish. And keep in mind that it was those ignoring him who stated the moral: they would have no reason to know what he thought because they ignored him!

******** The idea is that Timmy wished to be the funniest boy on the planet regardless of his humour, rendering everything he says funny to everyone else. The wish causes everyone to be hypnotised into hearing ordinary statements as extremely funny jokes. It wouldn't make any difference whether Timmy told a joke or not - they would laugh.

** Because every single wish he makes, no matter how reasonable, will inevitably screw everything up. And even if it doesn't, it will just be reversed once he loses his fairies.

** Most people don't even know Timmy is the cause of all the bad shit that goes down. Especially considering almost everyone is oblivious to fairies.

**Timmy hates his giant teeth. Since fairies can change forms he probably just chose one that looks exactly like himself but without the teeth.

* So in the "The Big Fairy Share Scare" Timmy tricks Chloe (the child who's sharing his fairies) into wanting the fairies on Fridays. He wishes away Fridays and oh no, turns out the Fairies charge their big wand on Fridays meaning they can't do that anymore. Timmy of course undoes the wish and he agrees to share his fairies with Chloe. Why didn't he just trick Chloe again this time saying she wants them on Saturday or Sunday and then wishing those days are gone? There's nothing stopping him from trying this strategy again.

** The episode is centered around them ''trying'' to catch and presumably squash it - Timmy is tackled by the Secret Service agents before he's able to stop it from reaching the President, and once Vickey throws herself in between them and takes the brunt of the bug's evil for herself, Timmy's fine with just having her arrested by the federal authorities to get her out of his hair, rather than wishing the bug back and risking it making contact with someone even more powerful.

* In "Vicky Loses Her Icky," Vicky's evil is summed up into an evil bug that seeks out powerful hosts. Once finding this out, Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda are trying to catch it before it reaches the President. Is it ever explained why they can't just squash the bug? And don't just give me StatusQuoIsGod; I want an In-Universe Explanation.
