Mr. Denzel Crocker:
[coming out of the psychiatric ward]
At last, I'm cured! No more fairies! For the first time in my life, I'm able to focus on other things! I've figured out cold fusion! There's no limit to the good I can do for humanity!
[Timmy's wish that no one remember anything from the last few days takes affect on Crocker]
Mr. Denzel Crocker:
What the heck is this junk? Was I about to help people? This can only be the work of... FAIRIES!

Having not seen the first 'Fairly Odd Parents' TV movie - 'Abra-Castatrophe - I caught 'Channel Chasers' on Nickelodeon. I really enjoy the 'Fairly Odd Parents' TV series, so I was keen on checking out 'Channel Chasers'. For those who haven't seen 'Fairly Odd Parents': the show is about ten-year old Timmy Turner, and his fairly odd fairy-god parents. Only the word 'awesomeness' can describe this second TV movie.
Twenty years into the 'Fairly Odd Parents' future, Chester and AJ (friends of Timmy) are chased through the streets of Dimmsdale by a masked ninja, an agent of the evil-dictator who now rules the world. In no surprise, the evil-dictator is actually Vicky - Timmy's evil-babysitter from the present. In 'Terminator' style, Vicky sends a ninja back in time to destroy Timmy once he has wished for the magical-TV remote.
Back in the present, Timmy has destroyed a house that his mother was trying to sell, and caused his father to lose his "Cleanest Office Award" to his arch-rival and neighbour, Dinkleburg. Timmy is grounded, and framed by Vicky for trashing the Turner home. With TV banned, Timmy wishes for a magic-remote that allows him to travel through the universe of television. When Vicky gets hold the remote, the race is on to stop Vicky from reaching Channel 298 - the biography channel - and learning how to conquer the world from the Channel's special 'dictator week'.
Two-hours of 'Fairly Odd Parents' is one of the greatest things I've ever experience. The movie is just as funny as the series, with the same sense of humour that should appeal to both adults and kids. In fact, most of the shows Timmy visits in 'Channel Chasers' should be recognizable to most adults, while kids should get more kicks out of the zany humour.
'Channel Chasers' feels like a finale, but I'm holding out for a 'Fairly Odd Parents' movie to hit the cinema - it is just as deserving as Spongebob Squarepants - 8/10
