A Month of “Fairly OddParents” Premieres Starts Today
Seven years ago today (7/7/07), Nickelodeon aired a marathon of Fairly OddParents episodes titled “Cosmo & Wanda’s Lucky 7 Saturday”. The event featured an 11-minute special “Seventy-Seven Secrets of The Fairly OddParents Revealed!” which announced to the public the arrival of a new fairy baby, who came to be known as Poof seven months later.
Now, seven years later also on 7/7, Nick starts a month of premieres for The Fairly OddParents leading up to the next live-action TV movie A Fairly Odd Summer. The third live-action movie starring Drake Bell as Timmy Turner is scheduled to premiere Saturday, August 2 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
Leading up to August 2nd, Nick has 16 new episodes of the animated series in store. New half-hour episodes will air Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 3 p.m. (again, ET/PT) through August 1. No premieres on Thursdays due to Nick’s “Throwback Thursday” programming.
This event includes episodes from season nine and ten. The ninth season is 20 episodes long and the tenth is six half-hour specials (similar to how season eight was). The new half-hour episodes will air on Fridays. Six episodes from season nine have already aired on Nick since last March. One episode from season ten aired on Memorial Day (“School of Crock”). And just to be clear, this isn’t unusual for Nick to air shows out of production order. This series, like most others, has been aired out of order since the first season in 2001!
