Fairly Odd Parents just celebrated its 10th anniversary, a major milestone for any toon. In addition to always being my favorite Nicktoon, there’s more to this post than picking favorites! Nickelodeon teamed up with Butch Hartman (the creator of Fairly OddParents) to bring us a live-action TV movie based on the world of this hilarious cartoon. Best of all, we’re just a month a way until the July 9th premiere on Nickelodeon!
The basic premise sees Timmy, played by Drake Bell of Nickelodeon’s “Drake and Josh”, as a 23 years-old. Sounds old, but he’s somehow still in the 5th grade and living with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Turner. Interestingly, although he is technically an adult, Timmy has retained his fairy godparents. How? Through a loop-hole; Timmy must act like a 10 year-old to keep his fairies! When Tootie (Daniella Monet from “VicTorious”) returns to Dimmsdale, Timmy falls in love. But the dilemma is he must now choose between love, or his fairy godparents granting his every wish.
“A Fairly Odd Movie, Grow Up Timmy Turner!” is written by the creator of FOP, Butch Hartman along with Scott Fellows, and is directed by Savage Steve Holland. The original voice cast members are back as the fairies who are animated in CG. Fairly Odd Parents is getting A LOT of attention now with Fairly Odd Parents trending on twitter — and if you haven’t already done so, you can follow Butch Hartman on twitter @realhartman !!
The multi-talented creator and writer, Mr. Hartman, even shows off his acting ability in “A Fairly Odd Movie”. You might not recognize him with the fake mustache, but here he is, still looking good:
