Warning: Spoilers follow
The show, set in the fictional town of Dimsdale, follows the day-to-day life of 10-year-old Timmy Turner. An only child, Timmy was often preyed upon by his mean babysitter Vicky. When he reached a particularly low point, he was assigned a pair of fairy godparents who had the power to grant his wishes and the mission to make Timmy happy. Unfortunately, Cosmo and Wanda are not the brightest of fairies and, although well meaning, their wishes often go awry. These Fairly OddParents (a pun on "fairy godparents"), mindful of their secretive existance, disguise themselves as Timmy's two goldfish, one green (Cosmo), the other pink (Wanda).

1.10 Other characters
Timmy Turner is a grade-schooler who makes wishes from his fairly oddparents, Cosmo and Wanda. The voice actor Tara Strong is the voice of this character.
Jorgen Von Strangle
Jorgen Von Strangle is the head of Fairy World and commander in chief of all fairies. He is married to the tooth fairy and hates Timmy Turner. He is voiced by Rodger Bumpass.
The Chin is a superhero appearing in comicss and televised entertainment enjoyed by FOP character Timmy Turner. In this respect, the Crimson Chin, like Captain Proton or Reptar, can be thought of as a meta-fiction character, in that they are fictional within the fiction franchises for which they were designed. He is voiced by Jay Leno.
Mr. & Mrs. Turner
Mr. (Daran Norris) and Mrs. (Susan Blakeslee) Turner are the somewhat stereotypical dimwitted comic suburban parents of their only child, Timmy. One episode established that they had hoped for a baby girl while Mrs. Turner was expecting, and had bought a large quantity of pink stuff, which explains why Timmy wears a pink hat.
Cosmo and Wanda
Cosmo and Wanda, also voiced respectively by Norris and Blakeslee, are Timmy's fairy godparents. Describing themselves (with tongues in cheek) in one episode as being "two halves of a whole idiot," their ability to help Timmy is limited by Da Rules, some of which are enumerated on nickelbob's fanpage.
Vicky - icky preceded by "V" (Grey DeLisle) - is a teenage girl who works as a babysitter, and is apparently the only babysitter the Turners know about. A meanie who presents a nice face to Timmy's parents, she enjoys annoying and terrorizing Timmy.
Denzel Crocker (Carlos Alazraqui), is the schoolteacher of the class Timmy is in. In an episode that dealt with causal loops (The Secret Origin Of Denzel Crocker), it is established that early in Crocker's life he obtained knowledge of the existence of fairy godparents, which cost him professionally when he made public his findings on the matter; however this is due to a time travel accident on Timmy's part. Crocker is a meanie who exhibits behavior consistent with megalomania, delusions, and bipolar disorder; however, he is not really delusional, because he knows that fairy godparents, at least in his experience, actually exist, and the torture this knowledge inflicts on him is further aggravated by the fact that he will never be able to prove it.
A. J. Ibrahim
A.J. (Haneef Muhammad; subsequently, Rocket Power's second Sammy voice, Gary LeRoi Gray) is another friend of Timmy, a very intelligent autodidact.
