Tropes associated with The Oh Yeah Cartoons (Season 0)
Art Evolution: The characters look different and less refined than when the series proper premiered.
Brother Chuck: A very unusual example, Vicky had a brother in the first episode, but we only hear his voice and we never see him, and he is never mentioned again (or was replaced with Tootie).
Early Installment Weirdness: For all characters, but most notably Cosmo and Wanda. Cosmo's voice is almost suave like a game show host and he is also somewhat more intelligent while Wanda is the scatterbrained one.
"The Big Problem!": Timmy wishes he was an adult, but ends up getting mistaken for a pervert by Vicky, is forced to live on the street, and risks losing his fairy godparents.
"Power Mad!": Timmy wishes for a video game that's more of a challenge, and ends up getting trapped in there along with his friends, Chester (a poor kid with braces) and AJ (an African-American nerd).
"Spaced Out": Timmy, Chester, and AJ are acting out scenes from Crash Nebula, a show they like, and so Timmy wishes that they could have a toy alien to play with. However, Cosmo and Wanda end up bringing over Mark Chang, a real alien from the planet of Yugopotamia.
"Transparents!": After wishing for and losing a baby dinosaur (which Chester and A.J. think is a chicken in a bad costume), Timmy's fairy-obsessed teacher, Mr. Crocker, asks Timmy to meet his parents about his project. Since Timmy can't use his actual parents, he wishes Cosmo and Wanda were his real parents.
"A Wish Too Far!": Timmy uses his fairy godparents to make him the most popular kid in school — and ends up in court for abusing his magic and not thanking his fairy godparents.
"Tiny Timmy!": Timmy goes on a fantastic voyage inside Vicky's body as part of a school project.
"Father Time!": When Timmy wishes for heat vision and uses it to do his chores faster, he accidentally melts his dad's trophy. Not understanding what the big deal is, Timmy goes back in time and prevents his dad from winning the trophy in the first place, but he ends up changing the future.
"Apartnership!": It's Cosmo and Wanda's anniversary, but Cosmo thinks Wanda doesn't like him anymore (he thought it was the styrofoam anniversary, while she thought it was the false anger anniversary, which he mistook for real anger), so he goes home to his mother.
"Chin Up!": Comedian and former talk show host Jay Leno guest stars in this episode where Timmy wishes his favorite comic book superhero was real, but the superhero ends up having a mental breakdown when he discovers that he's fictional.
"Dog's Day Afternoon": Timmy wishes he can switch minds with Vicky's pet dog, Doydle, so Vicky can finally be nice to him, but Doydle is scheduled to get fixed the next morning...
"Dream Goat!": On a field trip to see Dimmsdale's mascot, Chompy the Goat, an accident makes Timmy out to be a hero while Vicky is accused of kidnapping Chompy (when Chompy was actually wished away by Timmy after seeing how unhappy he was), and things get complicated when Timmy begins wishing for horrible things in his sleep out of guilt over not telling the truth.
"The Same Game": After losing his ball to Depraved Dentist Dr. Bender (voiced by Gilbert Gottfried), Timmy (rather than wish for another ball) wishes everyone were the same, turning everyone into gray blobs and causing all the fairies of the world to return to Fairy World.
"Christmas Every Day!": Timmy loves Christmas so much that he wishes every day could be Christmas, which lands him in a heap of trouble.
Tropes associated with season one:
Missing Episode: The Oh Yeah cartoons, except for one, were repackaged as three shorts episode, as there were so few episodes in season one. Around season four, they stopped airing these repackaged episodes when there were considerably more episodes that had been made.
The Other Darrin: For the repackaged Oh Yeah cartoons, Tara Strong redub Timmy's original voice actor, Mary Kay Bergman (who committed suicide before the show became a regular series). The DVDs of Fairly Oddparents do have the original "Oh, Yeah!" cartoon shorts in which Mary Kay Bergman voices Timmy Turner rather than Tara Strong.
"Boys in the Band": Timmy is jealous of Chip Skylark because everyone's so hyped up about his concert that they forgot about his birthday. When Timmy wishes for something bad (but non-lethal) to happen to him, Chip ends up staying at Timmy's house. While Vicky tries to get Chip to marry her, Timmy learns that Chip isn't a bad person at all.
"Hex Games": Vicky and Timmy compete to be the queen of the skate park.
"Boy Toy": Timmy's friends are getting rid of their old toys, but Timmy's reluctant to get rid of his Crimson Chin toy, so he wishes himself doll-sized for one last adventure with his action figure.

"Action Packed": The Turners' lives have been really boring as of late, so Timmy wishes that life could be more like an action movie.
"Smarty Pants": Timmy is jealous of AJ's good grades, so he wishes to be the smartest kid in class.
"Super Bike": Timmy and his dad are going to participate in a father-son bicycle race, but Timmy is embarrassed by the run-down bike that his dad made for him. He wishes for the best bicycle ever, but this bike has a mind of its own, and wants Timmy all to himself...
"A Mile in My Shoes": Timmy switches places with Cosmo and Wanda so they can each see how hard the other's life is.
"Timvisible": It's the last day of school, and Francis celebrates by beating up every guy in school. To avoid him, Timmy wishes to be invisible...which may be a problem when he has to accept his perfect attendance award later that night. Furthermore, due to his antics, everyone thinks the school is haunted, and Mr. Crocker is on the hunt...
"That Old Black Magic": On Friday the 13th, Timmy and his parents go to Adrenaland, a local amusement park. However, something's causing chaos and bad luck within the park (and eventually worldwide), and Timmy discovers that it's because of the Anti-Fairies, evil counterparts of regular fairies.
"Foul Balled": Timmy feels bad for Chester, the worst baseball player on their Little League team, so he wishes that Chester could be the best baseball player ever. However, Chester soon lets his newfound skill get to his head.
"The Boy Who Would Be Queen": Timmy wants to get Trixie a birthday present, but is unsure of what a girl like her would want. After accidentally wishing himself female, he goes to the mall to look for a present.
"Totally Spaced Out": It's Mark's birthday, and all he wants is Vicky. When he kidnaps her, Timmy finds himself having to save her.
"The Switch Glitch": Timmy wishes to turn Vicky into a five-year-old so he can give her a taste of her own medicine. But he goes much too far in his revenge, to the point where, since Vicky's so miserable, she gets to have Cosmo and Wanda as godparents.
"Mighty Mom and Dyno Dad": Timmy wishes that his parents could become superheroes, but then his parents don't have time for him anymore.
"Knighty Knight": When Timmy finds himself disappointed by the Camelot fair, he wishes himself into the real Middle Ages, and ends up helping the boy who would become King Arthur.
"Fairy Fairy Quite Contrary": Timmy discovers that Remy Buxaplenty, a local rich kid, also has a fairy (and the fairy, Juandissimo Magnifico, is none other than Wanda's ex-boyfriend). The two eventually get into a competition with each other.
"Nectar of the Odds": To raise money for tickets to Crash Nebula On Ice, Timmy starts a lemonade stand. At first, his lemonade is horrible, but after dunking Cosmo's sweaty socks in it, not only does the lemonade taste better, but it grants wishes, too.
"Hail to the Chief": Timmy competes with Tad and Chad for class presidency, only to find that it's not all it's cracked up to be.
"Twistory": Timmy wishes to meet the founding fathers of America so he can interview them.
"Fool's Day Out"
