The secondFairly OddParentsMade-for-TV Movie, and the first one to feature Vicky as the main antagonist.Timmy is fed up with his parents not believing him about Vicky, and after an incident that leaves him waiting in his room to be yelled at by his parents once they get back from the ammo store, he decides that with Cosmo and Wanda's magic, he can run away into television. This way he can never grow up and lose Cosmo and Wanda either; a win win. However, a masked visitor from the future has come to stop Timmy, or he just might throw the US into an apocalyptic world ruled by Vicky.
Politically Inaccurate (parody of Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, though the show plays out more like The MacLaughlin Group) which gets mashed up with an expy of WWE SmackDown! to become Politically Inaccurate Smashdown
This film provides examples of the following Tropes:
Adult Fear: Timmy running away from his parents. What makes it worse, is that they can't go into the TV, so if Timmy decided to live in there forever, they'd never find him.
Bittersweet Ending: In the end, Timmy ends up growing up married with a son and daughter and he appears mostly more well adjusted than his parents were. However, due to having his memory erased he appears to have forgotten everything he's ever learned and makes the same mistakes his parents did, hiring a robot version of Vicky as his kids babysitter. Luckily BOTH his kids now have Cosmo and Wanda as their fairy godparents.
Also, Timmy learns that while he will eventually lose Cosmo and Wanda due to growing up, it won't be for another 8 years.
Comically Missing the Point: When Timmy's parents heard Chip Skylark's song "Icky Vicky", they apparently came to the conclusion that it's about pumpkins.
Didn't Think This Through: After having no luck fighting Vicky in "Maho Mushi", Timmy decides to use the remote to make himself older, so he would forget Cosmo and Wanda, and the remotes would no longer function, making it easier for him to fight Vicky. It does cause the remotes to no longer function, but since Timmy lost his memories of ever having Cosmo and Wanda, and everything he ever did with them, this causes him to forget that he is fighting Vicky and just thinks that he is in a football stadium waiting to play the cougars, and does nothing to stop Vicky. Thankfully, Wanda poofs Timmy back to his normal age just in time.
Functional Magic: Vicky thinks the magic remotes use technology to change what's on the TV.
Not Allowed to Grow Up: Upon traveling through the TV shows, Timmy learns about this trope. One of his main reasons to move in the TV was to invoke this trope for an eternal childhood.
Not Helping Your Case: Really, when you think about it, Wanda's statement about Timmy's parents trying to raise him to grow up a responsible adult neither helps with Timmy's frustration about his parents not believing him about Vicky nor justifies his parents' blindness.
Race Against the Clock: Sort-of. Part of Timmy's plan to defeat Vicky involves aging himself up enough so that he forgets he ever had fairies. However, the downside to his plan is that the Fairy Cab pops in to take them away. And the driver isn't a very patient guy...
