Recap / S 0 E 1 The Fairly Odd Parents

Go To
A ten year old boy named Timmy Turner is assigned fairy godparents when his parents leave him with a mean babysitter. This was the first episode of The Fairly OddParents!.

This episode provides examples of

  • Art Evolution: The drawing style of the characters is definitely rougher looking than when it premiered as a proper series.
  • Baby Sitter From Hell: Probably the most famous example.
  • Chained to a Railway: As noted below, Timmy, in his role as Dastardly Whip Lash, ties Vicky to a railroad.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: A very unusual example. Vicky had a younger brother whom we heard screaming over the telephone. We never saw his face and subsequent episodes make no further reference to him.
  • Dastardly Whip Lash: Timmy takes on this role during one of his wishes.
  • The Faceless: We wouldn't see Timmy's parent's faces until The Fairly OddParents! premiered as a proper series.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: In particular, the characters of Cosmo and Wanda. Cosmo comes across as just as intelligent, if not more than, as Wanda.

  • Pilot: It was the first episode and introduced the main plot points.
  • Pint-Sized Kid: In one of the last scenes, Timmy is hugging his mother and he doesn't even come up in size, to his mother's knees.
