Trivia

  • Even though Timmy says that he has "an unlimited supply of magical wishes" after becoming a detective, he ends up resolving the mystery without a single wish. In fact, in the whole episode, Timmy makes only two wishes; to have something movie-related for his booth, and to be a detective.
  • This episode is one of Butch Hartman's top episode picks in the Timmy's Top Wishes DVD.
  • Chocolate City, Utah is Wanda's favorite place apparently since Cosmo put her there when she was apparently missing.
  • It reveals in this episode that Cosmo's clothes are dry clean only.
  • This is the first black-and-white episode of The Fairly OddParents. This happened again in The "Good Old Days!".
  • This is the first (and possibly the only) time Timmy is seen wearing a trench coat.
  • When Timmy entered the gym, his Fishbowl is not in his hands or in the background (Note: it might be in a pocket inside his coat because he is seen putting it in there). It is then seen behind him (it could be that he secretly took it out of his coat)
  • Timmy broke the fourth wall when he slammed at the screen and said "sorry".
  • Cosmo doesn't like being alone. This is what exposes his plan at the end as he claimed to Timmy he will face Jorgen alone.
