Running Gags

  • When a character screams, they blow their clothes off. (Mr. Turner twice, AJ, Chester, Francis, Crocker, Timmy)
  • When someone hears about the meteor, they freak out and spit coffee (The Scientist, Wanda) and sometimes the coffee hits someone (Chet Ubetcha at the Scientist, Cosmo at Wanda twice, Cosmo at Timmy and Wanda)
  • Someone accidentally tipping Timmy's Eiffel tower made of blocks (Chet Ubetcha's meteor alarm, and Mr. Turner twice), except for Vicky, who did it on purpose.
  • Cosmo poofing up tacos during the charades sequence.
  • People not hearing themselves screaming.

  • Normally the characters in the Fairly OddParents have four fingers. However, when Timmy uses his hand to "charade" the word "for" it shows him with five fingers. while at the same time, his right hand has only four fingers as usual.
  • When Denzel Crocker saw Timmy with his fairies, they should have still been taken away. Although Mr. Crocker has seen Cosmo and Wanda before, it was explained in Information Stupor Highway that this is not a problem as long as Mr. Crocker doesn't know whose fairies Cosmo and Wanda are. In this episode, Mr. Crocker clearly sees Timmy alongside his fairies. However, it should be noted that since there is no sound, Crocker was able to see them, but he was unable to tell anybody that they are Timmy's fairies because in addition to everything being mute, everyone too busy running around panicking because of the meteor.
