Followed by The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder

The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. The series follows the adventures of Timmy Turner, a 10-year-old boy with two fairy godparents named Cosmo and Wanda who grant him wishes to solve his everyday problems.

The series originated from shorts on Nickelodeon's animation showcase Oh Yeah! Cartoons that aired from 1998 to 2001. The show was later green-lit as a half-hour series, which premiered on March 30, 2001, due to its popularity. Originally, it ended on November 25, 2006, totaling five seasons, but resumed production in 2008. Production of the series ceased again after Hartman left Nickelodeon in February 2018. As of July 30, 2020, all seasons of the show are available on Paramount+. It is Nickelodeon's second longest-running animated show, behind SpongeBob SquarePants.

On February 24, 2021, it was announced that a live-action series was in development for Paramount+. A year later, it was announced that The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder would premiere on March 31, 2022.
