The franchise centered on The Fairly OddParents!, a Nickelodeon original created by Butch Hartman.

The series follows the adventures of one Timmy Turner, a kid who's parents are... unattentive to say the least, to which the poor boy has to not only put up with their neglect but a lot of misfortune. One day while suffering under a cruel babysitter named Vicky, two fairy Godparents, Cosmo and Wanda, who happen to also be married, enter into his life and allow him access to their magic via wishes to get even with Vicky. What follows afterwards is many misadventures where, more often then not, Timmy's wishes tend to spiral out of control and his efforts to fix them and hopefully learn some lessons along the way.

The series began life in 1998 as one of the shorts on Oh Yeah! Cartoons, Nickelodeon's anthology cartoon show. After positive reception to the pilot, the series gained 10 more shorts on the program until eventually Nickelodeon greenlit it as it's own series which premiered in 2001 where it soon become one of the network's more popular shows, often times even rivaling fellow Nick series, Spongebob Squarepants. The series ran a whopping 10 seasons through an 17 year run before finally, if rather unceremoniously, ending in 2017 when Butch Hartman left the company to go back to work at Cartoon Network and deciding to end all programs he was producing (Which at the time was this series and Bunsen Is a Beast).
