• One of the stage hands to the "This is Your Wish" television program mentions it being in its third season. The Fairly OddParents was in Season 3 when this episode was broadcast.
  • This episode reveals Cosmo's childhood and his time in the Fairy Academy as a cadet.
  • This was the first only episode to feature Cosmo's father.
  • Apparently Cosmo was responsible for the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius (which subsequently destroyed Pompeii), the sinking of Atlantis (done in a toilet flush style), and the destruction of Xanadu (replacing it with Pittsburgh).
  • This is also one of the nine times Cosmo sunk Atlantis, as it was revealed he sunk Atlantis nine times in Something's Fishy!
  • Cosmo has activated his wand by sucking on it so much that almost all of Fairy World are terrified of him when he does this (since almost everytime he previously did it, it caused disastrous results such as summoning a three headed dragon named Snowball that destroyed everything in its sight). This is what convinced the people of Fairy World to vote that he should stay with Timmy since they don't want that to happen again.
  • If you listen closely when Timmy asked who was the only person to vote that Cosmo should go back to live with his mother, when they turn to Wanda, she's whistling the Fairly Odd Parents theme song.
  • This is the second time Mama Cosma used a TV show (and bribed the host) to try and separate Cosmo and Wanda. The first time was in Apartnership when she bribed Cupid to break them up on his dating show.


  • The Terminator - During one flashback, when Jorgen gets burnt, his eyebrows are singed off and his hair is burnt down to spikes; This is likely a reference to Arnold Schwarzenegger's appearance roughly 1/3 in the film, when the Terminator received similar battle damage due to fire. As Jorgen is heavily based on Arnold Schwarzenegger, this was likely intentional.

Running Gags

  • Timmy Turner and Wanda being hit by a door.
  • Occasionally when Cosmo uses his wand, a three headed hydra monster will appear and start wreaking havoc all over the area.


  • When the camera shows a full overview of the cities Cosmo recklessly destroyed, Jorgen's five stars immediately disappear.
