The Fairly Odd Parents, Cosmo and Wanda are given the highly important task of watching over Timmy in the fun children's cartoon named after them. The cartoon show is the second most popular kids cartoon on Nickelodeon, coming in behind Sponge Bob Square Pants. It's extremely popular among kids for the fun, zany adventures that Timmy gets into with his Fairly Odd Parents.
Cosmo and Wanda were assigned to make Timmy happy by granting his wishes and helping him deal with some of his adversaries such as, Norm the Genie, Vicky the Babysitter, Francis the school bully and Mr. Crocker Timmy's teacher who also happens to be obsessed with catching a live fairy. Unfortunately the two fairly odd parents are a little bit klutzy and do not always grant Timmy's wishes in the way he'd like.
Cosmo is the one who tends to get things messed up for everyone and Wanda his cranky wife has to take care of fixing the problems. They always return things to normal by the end of the episode and everyone, except for Timmy's adversaries, is happy with the outcome. It can be said that most of the time magic is used to resolve the conflicts that were often caused in the first place by magic. The two fairly odd parents will disguise themselves in front of other people as various animals and objects, because their existence is supposedly to be secret.
Interestingly the cartoon was not very popular it's first year, but the second year and on it picked up a lot of fans, both kids and adults. Many kids love to have the Fairly Odd Parents as their birthday party theme, with those distinct light pink and green colors featured by Wanda and Cosmo. The show has had a made for television movie and several hour long specials, but it was canceled as of July 2006. Though it's still in reruns.
