Positive Role Models
Timmy is a positive role model because he shared his gift of Fairy Godparents with his cousin. Roy and Viv are positive role models because as the series progresses, they show more care and concern for each other -- having empathy when making their wishes.
Some diverse casting in Latino actor and original star Carlos Alazraqui, but the main cast is primarily White.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder is a live-action spinoff of the Nickelodeon classic, The Fairly OddParents. Brought back to life by Paramount+, the show highlights the passing of the baton from Timmy Turner to his cousin Viv and her new stepbrother Roy. As Cosmo and Wanda settle into their new home, chaos ensues. Some slapstick humor is sprinkled through each show, alongside themes around family, friendship, and growing pains. This show is a new treat for fans of the original animated series.
Is It Any Good?
A family-friendly show with eccentric comedy and a meaningful nod to the original comedy series. Viewers will be taken on a familiar fantasy ride with The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder as they see the repercussions of the character's wishes, teaching an important life lesson. One downfall is that the show lacks diversity and sometimes skims over important topics related to family dynamics.
