The Fairly OddParents is a 2001 Nicktoon created by Butch Hartman. The series originated from a series of shorts in Frederator's Oh Yeah! Cartoons series, which were later picked up into a separate franchise due to its popularity. The Fairly OddParents is the second longest-running Nicktoon, behind SpongeBob SquarePants. On February 8, 2018, Butch Hartman announced that he was leaving Nickelodeon. Neither Hartman nor the network have given a clear answer as to whether or not the series will continue without him.
The series centers on the life of Timmy Turner, a ten-year-old boy who is often neglected by his parents and tormented by his evil babysitter, Vicky. One day, he was granted two fairy godparents, Cosmo and Wanda, summoned to improve on Timmy's miserable life. Timmy's wishes would often cause problems, which he must constantly fix.
