Jeremiah's not so giant
Fury hasn't got her wings
Trafalgar, he just keeps on trying
But his spells don't help a thing
A Mexican/Irish/Australian/American co-production that originally aired on 7TWO. The series takes place in a fairy tale-like setting. Three best friends, Jeremiah, the son of the giant in Jack and the Beanstalk, Trafalgar, the nephew of Merlin the Wizard, and Fury, the daughter of Tooth Fairy, live through a tough life as teenagers and are determined to be themselves, despite their parents' orders and their fairy tale origins.
Please DO NOT confuse with the anime, Fairy Tail. Which may not be hard to do.
The series provides examples of:
- Alpha Bitch: The show adores this trope. The Grimm Sisters are the main example. Melody is this for the fairies, and directly bullies Fury. Cindy Rella also borders on this. And so does Fury's ex-best friend Aborabella after she's got her wings.
- An Aesop: In most episodes.
- Baleful Polymorph: Several times, Trafalgar getting it the most.
- Consummate Liar: Pinocchio Jr., it's in his nature.
- Dark Is Not Evil:
- Ms. Wicked. She was assumed to be Dark Is Evil.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita: Grimm Sisters.
- Expository Theme Tune
- Expy: Trafalgar resembles Severus Snape.
- Evil Earl, the son of an evil wizard.
- The trope of this changes depending on the writer and story, but Earl is the biggest offender.
- Meaningful Name: The Grimm Sisters are named after the Brothers Grimm.
- Nice Guy: Jeremiah and Trafalgar, though the latter can be quite boastful of himself even if he means well.
- Perky Goth: Trafalgar and Fury.
- Sadist Teacher: Mother Goose, most of the time.
- Ship Tease:
- During the pilot, Trafalgar took Fury out to the prom which would clue in that they may have a relationship as the series progresses.
- In "Nice Giants Finosh Last", frog-Trafalgar gets a kiss from Fury to turn him back to normal, though Fury says "Let Us Never Speak of This Again".
- Those Two Girls: Grimm Sisters.
- ¡Three Amigos!
- Team Pet: Kissy Twinkletoes, rainbow burping unicorn who later became a pegasus.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The main conflict in "Winged Fury" is Fury's tendency to be a tomboy while the other fairies are girly girls.
- Two Guys and a Girl: Jeremiah, Trafalgar, and Fury.
- We Used to Be Friends: Fury and Aborabella.
