Recap / The Fairly OddParents S2E23 Information Stupor Highway

Go To

Timmy writes an email inviting Trixie to the school dance, but Timmy's parents turn it into a mushy, yet threatening, love letter and send it on his behalf. Not wanting Trixie to get ahold of the letter, Timmy wishes himself into the internet to retrieve the letter. Meanwhile, when Mr. Crocker catches video footage of Cosmo and Wanda, he plans to upload it for the entire world to see, so Timmy finds himself having to deal with a much larger problem as well.


This episode contains examples of:

  • At Arm's Length: Trixie does this to Timmy as she reads his letter.
  • Battering Ram: Becomes a Running Gag throughout the episode.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Trixie reads Timmy's letter and loves it, but she turns him down because she assumes he only likes her because she's prettier than his mom.
  • Gasshole: To stop Mr. Turner from coming into the bathroom, Cosmo asks Wanda, "Pull my wand." She does so, causing a humongous pass of gas.
  • MacGuffin: Timmy's love letter to Trixie.
  • Not So Remote: When Timmy travels through the Internet, he marvels that he's on a computer in China. Turns out it's the computer to a Chinese take-out restaurant that's only blocks from the Turners' house.
  • Running Gag: "[Child's name]! I'm respecting your privacy by knocking, but asserting my authority as your mother/father by coming in anyway!" [destroys the wall with a Battering Ram]

  • Totem Pole Trench: Cosmo and Wanda try to pass themselves off as Timmy when asking Mr. Turner to fix the computer this way, stacked up and wearing a Timmy Turner Full-Body Disguise that is not a very convincing likeness, apparently forgetting they can shapeshift and it only takes one of them to do so.
  • Voice Changeling: Cosmo does a perfect imitation of Timmy's voice when hiding in the bathroom. Though it's justified in that Cosmo is a fairy and presumably changed his vocal chords with magic.
  • Wait Here: Timmy orders Cosmo and Wanda to stay in his room and guard the computer so it's not vulnerable to Dad using it to send more embarrassing letters.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Trixie ends up reading Timmy's letter and is flattered by it to his surprise, only to reject him because she assumes he only likes her because she's prettier than his mother.
