The Fairly OddParents

Correction: Timmy enters a comic world, not just his own comic; his comic is a portal so to speak. Other comics have been shown to be affected by Timmy's influence. For example, when Timmy first meets the Chrimson Chin, he tells him that he is fictional. This in turn depresses CC, and we find out that this is shown in different comics. Perfectly reasonable for Remy to be there, he just entered the comic world though his own comic.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the Season 4 episode "Mr Right", Timmy wishes that he was always right, and the magic makes it so that anything he says automatically becomes true. When he goes to tell Vicky he has fairy godparents, he actually says, "You'll probably be so busy that you won't listen to me," which Vicky refutes by telling Timmy that she's not only going to listen, but going to videotape him. But since he said that she wouldn't listen to him, the magic should have made that statement true and Vicky wouldn't have listened to him.

Correction: Timmy said, "You probably won't listen to me." he is questioning, rather then just making a statement of fact, so the wish would not force her to not listen.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Episode "New Squid in Town": Every time Timmy wishes everyone in the room would freeze, he, Cosmo, Wanda, and Mark Chang don't freeze, even though Timmy didn't specifically mention that they shouldn't freeze.

Correction: Throughout the series Timmy has been very unspecific with his wishes. It is even referenced in earlier episodes and mentioned that Cosmo and Wanda usually take liberties with his wishes.


Correction: The Pencil Pusher smashes the pencil so hard, the lead goes right through the eraser.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode where Timmy and Mark, the tentacled-alien from Yugopotamia, fight for Vicky, in what Mark calls "the Digifat", in the first round at the arena, Timmy wishes to be a robot, but turns out to be a pillow-shooter. But it has been specified more than once that Timmy can't wish to help him win a competition.

Correction: And since being turned into a pillow-shooting robot didn't help him win the contest, "Da Rulez" worked.

Correction: Reading the show's credits is not trivia.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the one with Timmy gets popular the kid with the boil says "Hi. This is my boil Bob." This is a tribute to one of the people who work on the show: Bob Boyle.

Correction: It isn't likely. For kids cartoons you usually have names beginning with the same letter, e.g Timmy Turner.

Correction: He didn't say needed, he said didn't have to go to sleep, so they still needed sleep.

Correction: That may have been a new rule. We see in the Christmas episode that new rules can come up anytime.

Correction: Yes if she looked up she'd see but she DIDN'T look up. Character stupidity is not a mistake.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Timmy looses his baby teeth two times; the first time is in one of the very first episodes, and then again, in the episode where Jorgen proposes to the tooth fairy .

Correction: He loses some in one episode and some in the other.

Vicy Loses Her Icky / Pixies Inc. - S4-E4

Corrected entry: When Vicky turns nice, she does nice things for Timmy, including placing a thermometer in his mouth - with the bulb outside the mouth. The bulb, which has heat sensitive mercury, should always be placed inside the mouth, in order to take a person's temperature.

Correction: That was stupid on the characters part. Character stupidity is not a mistake.

Totally Spaced Out / The Switch Glitch - S2-E8

Corrected entry: When Timmy is in that crazy day-care place, Gary and Betty say that he can't go home until Vicky comes back. If Timmy's parents were just going on a trip, and since there was no indication of how long Vicky was going to "Europe", shouldn't they take him home later? And if Timmy can wish himself onto the alien planet Yugopotamia, why shouldn't he just wish himself home?

Correction: They meant that he couldn't leave that place because he didn't have a baby-sitter to watch him, not that he was going to have to stay there even if his parents came back but not Vicky. So yes they would take him home later. As for wishing himself home, as we've seen in other episodes Timmy does not always think things through. So that was just dumb on the characters part.

Correction: They're magical fairies, who can appear/disappear at will. How could this possibly be a mistake???

Correction: The wish was canceled completely, so it would never come back again.

Correction: They never said that it was another fairy tournament, they were just fighting over the rock. They can fight over the rock without having everyone want it.

Correction: Not necessarily- he could still be "Mom"'s son or "Dad"'s son in another reality, but it would be more likely that he would LOOK different with another potential parent.

Correction: It's the worst day of Mr. Crocker's life, but the Caesar thing is also true.

Correction: The U never changed.

Correction: Yes you're right.

Father Time! / Apartnership! - S1-E4

Plot hole: Timmy uses his heat vision, that he previously wished for, to win the race for his future dad. But it's revealed later in "Smarty Pants" that if you use a previous wish in a contest, it is magically taken away because it's cheating.

Suggested correction: That is true, that rule was mentioned in a later episode. However in the episode Christmas Every Day, it was revealed that new rules could be added at anytime. So it's possible that the rule simply didn't exist yet. Although, this plot hole may apply to any episode released after "Smarty Pants."
