[[DescribeTopicHere ... and this is where I'd put my description of The Fairly OddParents!]] ''[[MemeticMutation ...IF I HAD ONE!]]''

''The Fairly [=OddParents!=]'' is a hyperactive animated series about a little boy named Timmy Turner and his fairy godparents, Cosmo and Wanda. Running for ten seasons, from March 30th, 2001 to July 26, 2017, it is the 13th entry in the Franchise/{{Nicktoons}} series and [[LongRunner the second longest-running scripted series]] in the network's history, behind only ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''.[[note]]''[[NewsBroadcast Nick News with Linda Ellerbee]]'' is the longest-running series overall, at 23 years.[[/note]]

In [[OnceAnEpisode most]] [[StrictlyFormula episodes]], Timmy [[MakeAWish uses Cosmo and Wanda's magic]] to deal with some mundane problem. Inevitably, things spiral rapidly out of control: whether it's getting his dad a cooler job, or dealing with one of his many [[ArchEnemy everyday enemies]]. Some of these include school bully Francis, sadistic and manipulative babysitter Vicky, [[SecretChaser fairy-obsessed]] SadistTeacher Mr. Crocker, and...[[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] Main/{{Expy}} Dark Laser. And then there are the episodes where Timmy somehow gets entangled in Fairy World politics. Needless to say, even Timmy's more sensible wishes are twisted to gigantic extremes and backfire horribly, forcing Timmy to hit the ResetButton and accept [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood his horrible life]]. As the series went on, [[CousinOliver additional characters were added to the main trio]], to mixed reception: Cosmo and Wanda's fairy baby Poof in the sixth season, their talking fairy dog Sparky in the ninth, and Timmy's new neighbor Chloe in the tenth season, whom he has to share Cosmo and Wanda with.

Despite its popularity, it notably remains the channel's most successful property to never receive a [[TheMovie theatrical movie]]. One was planned by Creator/{{Paramount}} along with [[{{Creator/Nickelodeon}} Nickelodeon Movies]], but was dropped due to a management change stemming from parent company Creator/{{Viacom}}'s split from Creator/{{CBS}}. However, there have been multiple [[MadeForTVMovie TV movies]] and special episodes, as well as three live-action television movies starring [[Series/DrakeAndJosh Drake Bell]] as a 23-year-old Timmy who still has Cosmo and Wanda: ''Film/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'', ''Film/AFairlyOddChristmas'' and ''Film/AFairlyOddSummer''.

In February 2018, the show's creator, Creator/ButchHartman, announced that he was leaving Nickelodeon after being with the company for 20 years. There is, as of this writing, no word from neither Hartman nor Nickelodeon to what effect this will have on the show.

The first 69 episodes are legally available [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCA8OH52te7LLg_O9T7lZFEA/featured on YouTube for free.]]([[NoExportForYou Not for viewers located in the USA, sadly...]])
