The Fairly Oddparents episode “The Same Game” (Aired 30 March 2001) symbolised racism. It said that everybody in the world could be grey blobs, and people would still classify themselves above others because they’re “the greyest and the blobbiest”. And that’s fucking powerful.
The Fairly OddParents premiered 15 years ago today!
Along with SpongeBob SquarePants, Butch Hartman and F.O.P. built a bridge between the Klasky-Csupo years at Nick and our creator-driven present day. It’s our second-longest running Nicktoon (141 episodes and counting) and including its days in Oh Yeah! Cartoons, the show has now been a part of Nick Animation for over 70% of our existence!
Happy birthday to Cosmo, Wanda, Timmy, Vicky, Mr. and Mrs. Turner, Mr. Crocker, Poof, Sparky, Chloe, and the entire Dimmsdale crew!!!
