This show is a parody of the real-life DC comic book, cartoon, TV and movie superheroes, Batman and Robin that has been around since 1939 as well as it's TV series since 1966. The show appears to be a parody of Batman: The Animated Series with the similar animation. The titular heroes of this cartoon are called Blackbird and Sparrow, and there is also an unseen (but mentioned) villain named The Quizzler, a parody of one of Batman's villains, The Riddler.
This show is the thirteenth show visited in "Channel Chasers", after Timmy Turner wished for a Magic TV Remote that allowed him to travel through television as if the programs were real worlds. After arriving in this program, Timmy took the role of Sparrow, where he intended to live in Blackbird's mansion in an adult free environment so he will keep his fairies. Unfortunately for him, the masked man who had been chasing him through television showed up and disabled Cosmo and Wanda before attacking Timmy directly, knocking both of them into a bird cage area reminiscent of the Bat Cave. After being cornered by the masked man, Timmy gets in a shouting match with him, until the masked man reveals he is actually an older version of Timmy from the future, and that he was there to claim Timmy's remote. He lept at Timmy, but he was able to stop his older self in his tracks using the remote.
Timmy and his fairies tied future Timmy to a chair and questioned him. After the future Timmy explained his story, Vicky showed up with a robot modeled after Blackbird and a magic TV Remote and started wrecking the place. She told them her intent to travel through television until she reached Dictator Week, where she could get an army to take over Earth. Timmy and his future self joined forces and set out after Vicky. Shortly after Timmy and his companions left, the real Blackbird showed up and cursed the "Quizzler" for causing the damage to his hideout.
