The Fairly OddParents will air regularly on Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
The Fairly OddParents exemplifies what has made Nickelodeon a leader in animation - innovative, amazingly funny, creator-driven content,” said Russell Hicks, President of Content Development and Production.  “Kids have fallen in love with the magical world Butch Hartman has created and we are delighted to serve up a new season filled with fun and entertaining adventures for our audience.”
The Fairly OddParents follows the comedic adventures of Timmy Turner, a 10-year-old boy who overcomes typical kid obstacles with the help of his wand-wielding wish-granting fairy godparents, Cosmo and Wanda.  These wishes fix problems that include everything from an aggravating babysitter to difficult homework assignments. With their eagerness to help Timmy, Cosmo and Wanda always succeed in messing things up.
In the season nine premiere, “Turner & Pooch,” Mr. Crocker realizes that Timmy’s dog, Sparky, has magical powers. Eager to use the fairy dog’s powers to fulfill his own wishes, Mr. Crocker hypnotizes Sparky in an attempt to turn him against Timmy. 
Now available for free on iTunes is the exclusive never-before-seen The Fairly OddParents documentary, The Making of Sparky: A DOG-umentary.  Narrated by creator Butch Hartman, the “dog-umentary” provides fans with an inside look at how the newest addition to this magical family, Sparky, went from just an idea to the loveable talking fairy dog on TV.  The “dog-umentary” and full episodes of The Fairly OddParents are available at

Butch Hartman began his animation career as an assistant animator on An American Tail.  He created his own shorts for What a Cartoon!, and also wrote and directed episodes of Dexter’s Laboratory, Cow & Chicken and Johnny Bravo.  Hartman joined Nickelodeon in 1998 where he created and produced several cartoon shorts for the Oh Yeah! Cartoons series, including The Fairly OddParents.  Commemorating the 10th anniversary of the animated series, Hartman brought the series to life in the 2010 live-action/CG animated hit TV movie, A Fairly OddMovie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!  The series came to life once again with the 2012 holiday-themed sequel, A Fairly Odd Christmas, drawing 4.5 million total viewers.  Hartman is also the creator of Nickelodeon’s animated series Danny Phantom and T.U.F.F.

  • Nick

    I thought this show ended years ago.

  • Ethan

    Damn…I was 5 when this premiered and thought it ended…

  • Dan

    It originally ended in 2006 but they resumed production 2 years later and it along with Spongebob are Nick’s 2 best performing shows (And oldest)

  • psychic

    This is still on and airs new episodes? I know it’s pretty famous and popular but honestly I assumed it ended years ago.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Wow Nick is coming out with a lot of new stuff. I just wish they’d show some Tuff Puppy. Numerous episodes are done but Nick doesn’t wanna show em.

  • Jacob

    I can’t believe this show is still on

  • ron

    when did they get a magical dog¿?

  • jake3988

    I too thought this show ended years ago. I haven’t watched it in years but I do remember it being pretty good (at least compared to the awful junk on Nick these days). Good to see it’s continuing.

  • Jake B

    Apparently kids these days understand Timmy.

    High five if you get it.

  • Dan

    Apparently Nickelodeon is now Spongebob, Fairly Oddparents and rotation of new 1-3 season series trying to capitalize on the success of the former but fail to do so.

  • ArrestedDeveloper

    lol, no one is reading the end of the article where it talks about them resurrecting the series to make TV movies a couple years back.

  • Wuthers

    This show was cute for a while but it’s gone downhill. It’s just a lot of idiotic yelling now. Time for something fresh and new, Nick.

    And that Tuff Puppy show is even worse.
