Timmy, the main character, is named after Butch Hartman's younger brother.
Timmy's full name is Timothy Tiberius Turner.
Around 2005 or 2006, Butch Hartman had considered making a theatrical movie of The Fairly OddParents. Unlike the later Live-Action Adaptation that was aired on TV in 2011, this one would have been animated. The details aren't concrete, but the plot was this: Timmy, feeling sorry for the other kids whom Vicky has babysat, wishes that every child had a fairy godparent. This, of course, backfires on him because Vicky, being under eighteen, is still considered a kid so she gets a fairy — Jorgen Von Strangle. Meanwhile, since there is no one to guard them or stop them the pixies and Anti-Fairies team up to take over the world. Butch has stated he would like to release it on DVD one day.
The Fairly Odd Parents may be one of the few cartoons to actually give a type of explanation of it's Floating Timeline due to the fact that Timmy wished no one to age in the episode Timmy's Secret Wish.
Unlike other Nickelodeon shows, Fairly Oddparents is notable, due to be distributed by Canada's Nelvana, to have its earlier episodes (actually, Nelvana distributes internationally all episodes from Season 1 to 4 (excluding The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour) and first 10 episodes of Season 5) aired on Disney XD, or even Disney Channel. (Dating back to the distribution rights for non-English broadcasts to be aired on Jetix where available.)
Banned Episode: Twistory doesn't air anymore due to it's racist undertones.
Hail To The Chief was also banned because it was paired with Twistory.
Breakthrough Hit: Butch Hartman's breakthrough, seeing as how he's gone on to be a successful animator because of this show.
Gilbert Gottfried as Dr. Bender and his son Wendell (later replaced with Butch Hartman trying to do a Gottfried-style voice)
Mr. Crocker, The Mayor, Chompy the Goat, and Crocker's mom are all voiced by Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life and Deputy Garcia from Reno 911)
The Latin American cast is the same cast as one used for doing Latin American Spanish dubs for South Park. Yeah, not really something parents want to hear about their child's (or children's) favorite show, though Latin America is more liberal about this than the United States.
And let's not forget Blonda, who, in her debut episode is voice by Julia Louis-Dreyfus (and was uncredited).
Throw It In: Timmy's trademark pink hat actually came about by accident. Originally, his hat was to be blue, but Butch's blue marker was dry so he grabbed another marker and when he saw it was pink, he left it like that.
Un-Cancelled: Ended in 2006, restarted in 2008. Then it seemed to end again in 2011 when the last episodes in production aired(though the show was never officially cancelled during that time). Then in 2012 it was mentioned that a ninth season was in production and it began airing in 2013 making Fairly Odd Parents the firstNicktoon to be Uncancelledtwice.
