The Fairly OddParents
The Fairly OddParents is a children's cartoon on Nickelodeon that debuted as a series of shorts on the anthology program Oh Yeah! Cartoons in 1998. It follows the adventures of Timmy Turner, a kid who is miserable due to pretty much every adult in his life. Due to his misery, he was given fairy godparents named Cosmo and Wanda, who often grant wishes for him. The wishes always go awry and see our trio spend the rest of the episode trying to work their way out of the mess caused. Despite (or perhaps because of) this silly premise, it was pretty popular early on and did have various clever jokes in its earlier seasons. Not unlike Rugrats before, the show started running out of ideas in its later years and started relying on gimmicky new additions to the main cast, including a fairy baby, a fairy dog, and a neighbor to Timmy who shares his godparents. Unsurprisingly, the show faded away completely soon after, and the last new episode aired in 2017.
Along the way, the series garnered some feature-length specials, including Abracatastrophe!, Channel Chasers, School's Out! The Musical, Fairy Idol, Fairly Odd Baby (which of course was the aforementioned Poof's introduction), and the seemingly epic three-parter Wishology. There were also three hour-length crossovers with The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron. A live action movie was created in 2011 (starring Drake Bell as a 23 year old Timmy Turner, and features a cameo by Jason Alexander as Cosmo), which would be the first of three live action Fairly OddParents movies.
Notably, it is a show that was beloved by kinghomer45 (particularly the forgettable one-off Nega-Timmy character), and its art style appears to have been an influence on his own.
