At last--a good Fairly Odd Parents movie!
17 September 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am a strange person, being in my 40s and still a fan of Nickelodeon's Fairly Odd Parents. I understand that I am NOT the typical viewer. However, as my own kids grew up, I often watched cartoons with them and the Fairly Odd Parents was one cartoon with enough originality and snappy writing that I actually enjoyed the shows. My students at school are rather surprised that I actually know more than most of them about the show and I often quote Cosmo while I am lecturing! It is truly a clever and entertaining show.

However, before CHANNEL CHASERS, the network produced a couple other made for TV movies for the Fairly Odd Parents and they frankly were huge disappointments. ABRACATASTROPHE was just dull and totally unlike the original show in pacing and SCHOOLS OUT! was hair-brained--after all, with a successful show, who would want to make a musical version?! However, with CHANNEL CHASERS the Nick folks finally have a winner. In fact, it's a show that is better than most of the half hour episodes thanks to amazingly insightful and very funny parodies of a wide variety of kids' TV shows. Seeing them roast The Simpsons, Sesame Street, Dragonball Z and many other shows was a great chance to gently laugh at them. At last a Fairly Odd Parents movies even parents and grownups (at least, in the chronological sense) can enjoy!

FYI--"Oddly", while this movie is clearly superior to the previous TV movies, the other films actually have a slightly higher rating. Everyone in my household felt pretty much the same way I did about the movies and I just don't get the inflated ratings--particularly for SCHOOLS OUT!.
