Plot

The story starts twenty years into the future, where Vicky has taken over and become dictator. There is a chase scene, with the future Chester and A.J. being pursued (and caught) by one of Vicky's henchmen. It then goes back to the present, where Timmy's parents refuse to allow him to watch TV after he wished for a real version of a destructive vehicle known only as the "Kid Crusher" from his favorite TV show, Maho Mushi (parodies from Dragon Ball) and things went horribly wrong. He then wishes for a magical remote control so that he can go inside the "TV universe," where all the shows seem to be parodies of real TV shows, such as Heavy Hal (Fat Albert), Jonny Hunt (Jonny Quest), Space Spectre (Space Ghost), Go Go Racer (Speed Racer), Carpet Critters (Rugrats), Poppyseed Avenue (Sesame Street), Blackbird (Batman), and Clint's Hints (Blue's Clues). There was also a spoof of The Jetsons (the Furtureellis) and The Simpsons (The Feldmans). However, Vicky also gets a hold of a remote control, and Timmy has to stop Vicky from taking over the entire world through the TV, although he is aided by his future self, who came back from the Vicky-controlled future to stop her once and for all.

Meanwhile, Timmy's parents have noticed he has disappeared and are searching for him. Chester, AJ and Vicky's parents are no help because Vicky had secretly threatened them. They then received information at a parking garage from a shadowy person known as "Deep Toot" (a spoof of Watergate spy Deep Throat) and for the first time the parents learn that Vicky is actually evil (Timmy's Dad thinks that the name "Deep Toot" is hilarious). They then ask at "Dimmadelphia Cable," the local cable TV provider (spoof of Adelphia Cable), where they sneak into the broadcast room and send a message out to Timmy (which ends the message with his father saying he loves him more) without the permission of the manager, Doug Dimmadome, who calls security.

During a showdown with Vicky, his future self is forced to return to the future, leaving Timmy determined to defeat Vicky. Realizing that magic is the only reason she had the advantage, Timmy uses the remote to age himself so that he becomes too old for Cosmo and Wanda, resulting in all residual effects of their magic- including the remotes- being erased. With Timmy's proper age restored, he then comes out of the TV. His parents apologize for never believing him about Vicky and tell Vicky off for being so evil to Timmy. Because his parents now know the truth about her Timmy will never have to be babysit by her again. However, Timmy realizes that it's because of Vicky he got fairy godparents so rather than get rid of Vicky, he wishes that nobody would remember this, as with Vicky gone he might lose Cosmo and Wanda. Tootie, AJ and Chester forget about "Timmy-related" topics. Crocker, who was hospitalized, thought the cold fusion generator he made was magic. Timmy later buried a "time capsule" in his backyard to remind himself of somethings in the future and vows to never make the same mistakes his parents made.


The movie ends soon afterwards with a scene that flash-forwards to 20 years into the future - Timmy has two children named Tommy and Tammy. Tammy has Trixie Tang's hairstyle and Tootie's distinctive glasses; band Tommy's hair suggests either Tootie or Trixie. The adult Timmy was shown leaving for work, and hired a babysitting robot, which is built and acts like Vicky, to baby-sit his children, who have become scared of it/her. Before Timmy leaves for work, he looks at the photograph that Vicky took at the beginning of the movie, but the goldfish have normal eyes and shape, leaving no memory of his childhood fairies. It is noted that they looked oddly familiar. He also notices something about the bot but since he was late he had to go.

Trivia

  • In Maho Mushi's title screen, it is written as "Mutsu" instead of "Mushi". This error is frequent because of the similarity between both Japanese letters. "Mutsu" is Japanese for "diaper".
  • During the Maho Mushi fight sequence, one of Timmy's and Vicky's battle cries were "MIYAZAKI!" and "KUROSAWA!", respectively. They were nods to acclaimed anime director Hayao Miyazaki and acclaimed film director Akira Kurosawa.
  • Most, if not all, of the Maho Mushi sequence was a parody of both Dragon Ball and Mecha.
  • Timmy's use of words near the end of the movie that replace to the phrase "over my dead body" ("Over my cold, unmoving, limited animation body") is a take on two things: the limited animation of most anime and censorship in the translation of anime edited for television broadcast.
  • During the scene where Vicky finds Cosmo covering for Timmy, a Happy Days parody can be seen on the T.V.
  • During the giant robot battle, one of the robots beats the other up by punching, slapping, and poking it in the eyes. The hand motions with the two-fingered poke in the eye and the vertical hand defense was a repeated gag used by The Three Stooges. This could also be a spoof of Kid Goku's move Rock, Paper, Scissors.
  • On the DVD there is a song that was cut out possibly for the reason it was too long to be shown on TV. The song is about Timmy living in TV and there is a parody of American Idol and Simon Cowell within the song. It was called "If I lived in TV" and is Track 17 on the "Timpod".
  • On the DVD, the "Sesame Street" parody's original version is in the special features menu. It originally ended with Wanda being picked up by Brian Henson and put into the TV. For some reason, Nickelodeon remade it.
  • This is the second Fairly Oddparents movie (excluding the Crash Nebula special as well as the Timmy/Jimmy crossovers) where Timmy almost lost his godparents for good, and in this movie one witnesses (for the second time during the course of the series) another way someone can lose their fairies (by aging), and Timmy again defeats one of his major/most powerful enemies (Vicky).
  • In the beginning of the episode, Mrs. Turner is selling a glass house to a man named Mr. Joel, with the check he gives her signed "Billy". This is a reference to the Billy Joel album "Glass Houses."
  • In the credits of Adolescent Genetically Altered Karate Cows (which is an obvious reference to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Wanda, Cosmo, Timmy, and older version of Timmy are being picked up by Butch Hartman letters.
  • During The Simpsons parody, "The Feldmans," the fourth wall is broken. Timmy is seen writing on the board "This is the sincerest form of flattery," a reference to the phrase "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
  • Before Timmy gets his magic remote he watches TV and hears of violent cartoons on TV, as they are discussing it on the news, a cartoon video of Vegeta from Dragonball Z is being played.
