School of Crock (The Fairly OddParents)
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Mr. Crocker becomes a teacher at Spellementary School and tries to steal all the students' magic. Meanwhile, Poof is going through `pooferty' and is finally learning to speak.
Why It (C)Rocks
- The way Poof was speaking in gibberish and babbling for most of the episode is pretty adorable, as this is something babies in real life do.
- A nice parody of puberty in this episode. As an example, fairy babies go from saying "Poof, poof" to actual words as they go through "pooferty".
- Mr. Crocker's scheme to drain all of the fairy babies' magic to give him super powers using his blender invention that he created.
- This is also one of the few episodes where Sparky is completely absent. (besides from the first and last secene's.)
- The epic battle between Poof and Crocker.
- Minor callbacks to the earlier episodes of the series. Chip Skylark's "My Shiny Teeth and Me" song is heard in the background in Timmy's room.
- Poof's new voice in the end is pretty good, as he sounds almost like Timmy, but lower-pitch.
- It was nice for the writers to let Poof speak for the first time since the other fairy babies also speak as well.
- While odd and questionable, Foop and Poof are finally cool with each other and Foop apologizes for trying to destroy Poof.
- Continuity is still ignored at times, as per usual for Season 9. One notable example is when Timmy wished Crocker to be far away as possible, how did he end up in Fairy World's Spellementary School? Combined with the fact that he is human and his status as a fairy hunter.
- Additionally, Crocker and Foop seemingly appear to not recognize each other in this episode despite the fact that they have already interacted with each other before in previous episodes such as "When Losers Attack". However, this can be excused by the simple fact that Crocker is suppose to hunt fairies, since Foop is an anti-fairy, which is almost the same thing as a regular fairy.
- The running gags are still annoying at times.
- This feels like another forced Crocker episode, despite Crocker himself being in-character and the plot itself being decent.
