Vicky Gets Fired (The Fairly OddParents)
"Vicky Gets Fired" is the eighteenth episode in Season 6 of The Fairly OddParents.
After Vicky gets fired for erasing a videotape that the Turners were saving so that they could use it to get their own reality show, she decides to take over Dimmsdale and wage war on Earth. Timmy must now stop her and never return her to babysitting at all costs for life! Unfortunately, every time Timmy wishes she was not the supreme ruler of something, she becomes a supreme ruler of a very most powerful position.
Why It Deserves To Get Fired
- Timmy's parents are really unlikable in this episode, as unlike in "Channel Chasers", they don't even care that their son is being tortured by Vicky even when they clearly see the footage, caring more about their reality show rather than their son.
- Granted, Timmy's parents are for the most part gullible and can be easily fooled, but, deep down, they care for their son, and they were never this neglective.
- The way Vicky got fired is incredibly stupid. She gets fired not because she tortured Timmy, but because she erased the Turners' reality show tape. Yes, really.
- On that topic, Timmy never berates his parents for firing Vicky over a reality show tape.
- This episode is filled to the brim with plot-holes:
- After Vicky got fired as Timmy's babysitter, she decides to find other jobs instead and eventually overthrowing the Dimmsdale government, which makes no sense. Isn't she supposed to be a babysitter? Besides, it's not like Timmy was Vicky's only customer, why didn't she find another kid from a different family to babysit?
- In addition, if Vicky quit her babysitting job, why didn't Timmy just wish for Vicky to get a job where she can't risk other peoples' lives?
- Furthermore, how did Vicky become the mayor of Dimmsdale easily and why wasn't she arrested for overthrowing the government?
- Very cruel and predictable ending where Timmy wishes for Vicky to be his babysitter again, forcing himself to suffer her torture while the world isn't ruined by her.
- The ending also gives off a very bad moral, which states that if you are being bullied and tortured up to the point of attempted murder, you should keep quiet and not tell anyone, especially authority figures.
- Timmy's parents don't apologize to their son for caring about their reality show tape over him.
- The first two minutes were okay.
- The message that sometimes you need to make personal sacrifices to help others is a good one, even if it was executed horribly.
- The joke of "Vicky, you're fired! Literally!" before she gets shot out of a cannon is pretty decent.
