< The Big Problem!


  • This is the first episode in Season 1, and is considered the first episode of the main series.
  • The other kid actually goes to the same school as Timmy goes, although he is only seen in background shots.
  • When Timmy said it was 6:04 Vicky said it was 9:04 on the east coast which is 3 hours apart, that gives the viewers a hint they live in California (which was revealed in Christmas Every Day and Fairy Idol).
  • This is the first time Timmy sees his Mom and Dad kiss.
  • Although this is the first appearance of Chester and A.J., their names are not revealed until the accompanying episode "Power Mad".
  • Timmy will later act like a child in his adulthood to keep his fairy godparents in ‘‘A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!, possibly referring to this episode.
  • The scene when Vicky introduces herself to Mr. and Mrs. Turner is similar to the flashbacks Cosmo and Wanda showed to Timmy why he got them as fairy godparents in the movie Abra-Catastrophe.
  • Also after Mr. and Mrs. Turner leaves, Vicky says "Have fun at the movies! Bye!". She also said the same line in the pilot episode after Mr. and Mrs. Turner left the house to watch the movies.
  • The First Reassigning Fairy also appeared in the game boy platform of Breakin' Da Rules.
  • A mysterious parrot was in a scene, but it may have been killed after Vicky said her name.
  • A lot of people confused this episode as the last Oh Yeah! Cartoons episode. Super Humor is the last episode of Oh Yeah! Cartoons.
  • Timmy's adult version's voice is identical to the one in Channel Chasers where he turns 18. (You can notice this in the part in the jail cell when he is crying about not growing up)
  • Innuendo: After Timmy is transformed into an old adult man who is losing his hair, he tries to help an old lady cross the street and grabs her arm, only to get sprayed with pepper spray. Also, when older Timmy enters his house, Vicky blows a whistle before attacking and kicking out older Timmy. Later on, when older Timmy sees Vicky on the streets, he opens up his arms for a hug and says, "Vicky! I've never been so happy to see you in my life!" making Vicky blow her whistle again and attack older Timmy. The police then get ahold of older Timmy and state that he is one creepy adult. In this episode, older Timmy gets constantly mistaken for a pervert and a pedophile, and Vicky's whistle appears to be a rape whistle.
  • Innuendo: Since Fairy Godparents can only grant wishes to kids or even adults with the mind of a kid, the reason for this could be because adults with an adult mind could wish for their own sexual fantasies.


  • The Simpsons - The adult Timmy Turner of this episode somewhat resembles Homer Simpson.
  • Toy Story - The kid that the fairy messenger showed to Cosmo and Wanda is similar to Sid, due to his appearance and his toy abusing personality.

Running Gags

  • Something breaking or dying whenever someone says Vicky's name.
  • The word creep or creepy being said after Timmy wishes to be an adult.
  • Characters having a shaving problem, resulting in them injuring themselves.
  • When Vicky sees Timmy as an adult, she becomes shocked, blows a whistle and uses karate moves on Timmy.


  • How did the mean kid know about fairy godparents?
  • After Timmy is transformed into an adult, Cosmo and Wanda's reaction was "ewwww", but if you watch their mouths carefully, they are out of sync with the words and they seem to be saying something else.
  • How did Timmy get a car? It is impossible because Mr. and Mrs. Turner took their car to the movies.
  • After Timmy heard Francis bullying Chester, he said "This looks like a job for..." then Cosmo and Wanda continued Timmy's phrase "...older Timmy", but watch the movement of Wanda's mouth, there's no teeth shown. But in later episodes, Wanda's teeth always appear when she talks.
  • Wouldn't Timmy have forgotten that he even HAD fairies, because according to Channel Chasers, when Timmy was 18, he didn't realize who Cosmo and Wanda were? It could be possible that this doesn't apply here since Timmy did not age himself with an actual aging device (The magic TV remotes aged people if they pressed the fast forward button on the remotes).
  • The kid that the fairy messenger wanted to reassign Cosmo and Wanda to showed no signs of being miserable. Later in the series, it is mentioned one of the requirements to having a fairy godparent is being a miserable kid.
  • The adult Timmy from Channel Chasers looks different from the adult Timmy in this episode. Although, this could be due to the fact that each couple of episodes is made by a different author.
    • Or, it might be because this Timmy was older than the one from Channel Chasers.
    • Or it could be due to the fact he aged himself by wishing and not via aging devices.
  • At school during the brief football game, Timmy is wearing a heavily-padded football uniform and a helmet with a small portion of his hair can be seen sticking out. However, after being assigned the position of being the ball, the scene cuts to one of the football players picking up Timmy, and the hair sticking out is gone. However, after the football player tosses Timmy, his hair can be seen sticking out again.
