Greetings, blog people!! This is Kevin Sullivan, Oddparents staff writer, logging in after many months with apologies for not logging in more over these many months…and with more scoop on the upcoming new season of Fairly Oddparents! I was sitting in our story editor’s office this morning and saw on his wall our homemade index card schedule charting all the episodes we’ve written this year, and it made me realize two things: a) boy, have we been busy, and 2) how come *my* office doesn’t have walls? Seeing all these episodes stacked up made me realize it was high time I checked in with you friends of the fairies to let you know what’s happening.
By now you should be seeing ads popping up on Nick announcing new episodes of The Fairly Oddparents in 2008. I do believe we’re premiering over President’s Day weekend, but if that’s wrong then you didn’t hear it from me. I think there are 20 new 11 minute episodes coming, plus several half hour specials and the one hour surprise special that will kick everything off (which, if you’ve started to see the ads, won’t be a surprise for long - though it will still be special!). There are also a couple more hour long episodes coming for summer 2009 (wow we plan ahead), but if I mentioned those in detail then I would have to kill you all - and Butch would surely kill me.
What *can* I tell you about what’s coming? It’s all hilarious! You have my guarantee! More specifically, there are pirates and tonsils and talking cars and sock monkeys and uncontrollable hair and cavemen and a crazy car wash and cheese (lots of cheese) and dinosaurs and wish rehab for Timmy and a bride for Mark Chang and four erupting volcanoes and a new Christmas song (coming December 08!) and anti-fairies and pixies and the Crimson Chin and Dark Laser and Britney Britney and…Olympic figure skater Scott Hamilton!
So thanks for being enthusiastic and excited (and very very patient). Keep your eyes open for ads on TV and in magazines touting our premiere date - you’ll be watching new FOP episodes before you know it. So happy holidays, happy new year…and we’ll see you on Nickelodeon in 2008!
