I've been following this Nicktoon in earnest sometime after those hilarious discussions about different cartoons a couple of weeks ago. To tell you the truth I was sorely disappointed with this one after Nickelodeon bumped Rocko's Modern Life off their active list but after watching a couple of episodes I realized it wasn't that bad. Then I became a convert after watching it everyday. The series revolves around a little kid named Timmy Turner who gets an odd pair of Fairy Godparents named Cosmo and Wanda one night after his parents left him for some time under the care of a cruel nanny named Vicky. Set in the town of Dimmsdale, Timmy's parents don't have names and they're called exactly that or the more proper "Mr. and Mrs. Turner." The wealth of humor is there although this series is aimed towards teenagers and grown-ups rather than kids. Sure I still miss the gang of R.M.L. but this series' characters' inanities are too good to pass up like Dexter's Laboratory and Time Squad. They also make good references for art styles and humor. If you're a big fan of the series you could sign up in their own mailing list.
