* BatmanGambit: The Pixies' plan relies on, in order: Dimmsdale's kids growing completely out-of-control during their summer vacation; their parents getting so fed up with it that they agree to send their kids to Camp Learnatorium; Timmy being so bored by Camp Learnatorium that he wishes kids ruled the earth; and the world's children doing such a good job of ruling the earth that there's no need for fairy godparents anymore. Every single one of these things happens ''exactly'' as the Pixies planned it. Admittedly, the Pixies gave Timmy a ''tiny'' push in the right direction to make sure he made the right wish.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Wouldn't be ''Fairly Odd Parents'' without it. This time, it's Timmy's "kids ruling the earth" wish, but instead of [[GoneHorriblyWrong going horribly wrong]], it [[GoneHorriblyRight goes horribly]] ''[[GoneHorriblyRight right]]''. With all the world's problems getting solved in a matter of days, there's no need for fairy godparents anymore and they're all pulled back to Fairy World. This allows the Pixies to fill the magical power vacuum - [[BatmanGambit just as]] [[MagnificentBastard they'd planned]] - and it all goes downhill from there.



* GoneHorriblyRight: Timmy's wish that kids ruled the earth. The kids promptly solve all the world's problems within a matter of days, but the world is now such a nice place that there's no need for fairy godparents anymore, and they're all pulled back to Fairyworld. [[Just as the Pixies had planned it.

* TeenageWasteland: While they're technically not teenagers, this complies with the definition of the trope since Timmy wishes that the kids were in charge. He becomes president and delegates authority to the various kids.
** However, this is a subversion due to the world being ''better'' when the kids are in charge. World peace even happens in a day!

** Also his reaction to the resultant Flappy Bob/Pixie-controlled Earth, an incredibly dull place where everyone dresses in casual office attire, and the kids are stuck in Flappy Bob's edutainment summer camp their whole vacation.

* CassandraTruth: Downplayed. While Flappy Bob refuses to believe Timmy's claim that the Pixies are manipulating him, the possibility gives him a ''lot'' of self-doubt and he repeatedly wonders aloud whether Timmy was telling the truth before finally realizing that he was. Indeed, after he signs the Pixies' contract during "Where Is The Fun?", his ''very next line'' is: "Maybe you're right; this could be a giant mistake''.



* ExactWords: [[spoiler: HP's iron-clad contract with Flappy Bob states that the world will be shaped according to Flappy Bob's wishes. Too bad Timmy helps Flappy return to his fun-loving roots]].



* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After Flappy Bob overhears the Pixies bragging about how they'd been manipulating him his entire life, and insulting his intelligence, he realizes Timmy was right about the Pixies using him and starts working against them]].
* HeelRealization: Flappy Bob teeters on the edge of one for most of the film, as Timmy tries to prove to him that the Pixies' idea of fun is completely wrong and that he's being manipulated, but he doesn't actually cross the line until [[spoiler:he overhears the Pixies bragging about their manipulation of him]], at which point he realizes that Timmy was right.

Not to mention the fact that [[spoiler:if the world will be shaped according to Flappy Bob's wishes. Too bad Timmy helped Flappy return to Pixies hadn't bragged about their manipulation of Bob, he wouldn't have performed his fun-loving roots]].HeelFaceTurn in the first place]]. Yeah, the Pixies get screwed over by this trope a ''lot''.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: If the Pixies hadn't [[spoiler:bragged about their manipulation of Flappy Bob, allowing him to overhear it and pull a HeelFaceTurn]], their 37-year plan would have gone off without a hitch.

* VillainSong:
** "WE'RE PIXIES! WE'RE PIXIES! CHECK OUT OUR MAD WICKED MIXIES!" True to the nature of the trope, it's one of the best songs in the special.
** "Jorgen's Polka" could also qualify, though Jorgen's more of a WellIntentionedExtremist than scheming villain.

The movie starts a few years before the series, HP and his assistant Sanderson coming off a defeat from the Fairies when they come across a baby clown who's parents had thrown him off a train in an effort to save him (the train was approching a gap in the track but it switched to a stable one at the last minute). Thus HP starts scheming of a plan to use the baby for later.

In present time, summer has started and school's out to the dread of the adults of Dimmsdale as the kids start running amuck. Helped along but the Pixies to make their actions more destructive. In comes a man named Flappy Bob who offers to take care of the kids in his "Fun Camp" which is an over-sterilized, over protective and an educational-laden dull place. When the kids are forced to go there, Timmy comes to the conclusion that "adults ruin everything" and wishes kids were in charge of the world.

Seems like a good enough wish, right? Of course if you know this show, it naturally leads into unforeseen consequences engineered by HP himself and Timmy has to find a way to set it right.

to:
