WishologyPt1-016

In Wishology's parody of Matrix, Timmy says "wow, we are still spinning". That is one of example for breaking the fourth wall.

The fourth wall is the imaginary "wall" at the front of the stage in a traditional three-walled box set in a proscenium theater, through which the audience sees the action in the world of the play.[1] When speaking directly to the audience through the camera in a film or television program, it is called "breaking the fourth wall."[1][2] The technique of breaking the fourth wall can be seen in various television programs, especially situation comedies, in animated cartoons, and in films. It is humorous mainly because what happens in the film is supposed to be happening as an ordinary day, so when they take note that they are being filmed or in an animated films case that some special effects are being used, it breaks the normal day feeling.

List of fourth wall breaks

Opening credits & other media

  • During the opening credits, Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda look directly to the audience.
  • At the end of some episodes a character states a running gag that appeared throughout the episode. Usually the character stating that gag looks at the audience.

Episodes

  • In the first part of "Wishology!", when Timmy Turner makes a parody of "Matrix", he says " Wow, we are still spinning! " after the camera continues to orbit the scene for an extended period of time.
  • In Operation F.U.N., Juandissimo Magnifico looks to audience and asks "Do you think I'm sexy?"
  • In the very end of Something's Fishy, a Kraken looks to audience and waves.
  • At the end of "The End of the Universe-ity", Crocker says "I'm still naked" to the audience, while grabbing the iris.
  • In the Five Days of F.L.A.R.G, when Mark is telling Timmy that on the "L" day of F.L.A.R.G. "you lie all day long," his eyes briefly move to the audience when he is saying "lie."
  • Jorgan VonStrangle doesn't just break the fourth wall but blows it up in "Fairly Oddbaby" when he has the cameras zooming in on him and then saying that they have to back off after he grants Timmy's fairy baby wish. At least he still has three other walls.
