Dimmsdale in the year 1992 was shown in the third season episode The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker. The city was not very different from present day Dimmsdale, the exception being that most citizens shown were in their 30's and sported styles from the early 1990s. This was serendipitously the year Timmy Turner's parents purchased their home in Dimmsdale. This occured presumably after Chet Ubetcha ran them to the other side of town according to the episode Poltergeeks. 1992 was also the year that Denzel Crocker began teaching at Dimmsdale Elementary School. Timmy's mom was shown to be pregnant with him. They were hoping for a girl, which explains the pink hat and Timmy wearing dresses.
