• The outfit that Mr. Turner wears on the garage is the same one that he wears on Super Bike.
  • The title card music used for this episode is from Where's the Wand?.
  • Alongside Hassle in the Castle and Parent Hoods, this is one of the few episodes/comics to feature certain aliases of Timmy.
  • Timmy is shown to be scared of bare feet. This is shown again in A Bad Case of Diary-Uh!.
  • This is the second time Timmy shape-shifted. First was in Apartnership, when he turned into a toilet bowl.
  • This is the only time Timmy switched places with Cosmo and Wanda, becoming their fairy godparent with Cosmo and Wanda as his godchildren. However, Timmy would become a fairy again at the end of "A Fairly Odd Summer", though it was not as a result of a wish. 
  • Wanda now believes that Vicky is far worse than Jorgen after seeing how cruel she is with both her and Cosmo while they are doing their chores.
  • This is one of the only times when Cosmo uses complicated words. In this episode, it's "symmetrical".
  • Only appearances of Scary World and Hairy World.
  • The animals Timmy become to:
  1. Old Fish (unknown species)
  2. Hammershark
  3. Goldfish without gills
  4. Octopus
  5. Eel
  6. Whale
  7. Walrus
  8. Sea Turtle
  9. Seahorse
  10. Porcupine Fish
  11. Goldfish
  12. Goldfish with a dog head
  • This is the only episode in the actual series where Jorgen wears his Jetpack. It was seen mostly in the Oh Yeah! cartoons shorts.


  • A Mile In My Shoes - The title is a reference to the old idiom that to learn more about someone, they should "Walk a mile in their shoes", meaning learn what it is like to be them.
  • Prohibition - When Timmy walks into school out of the rain, the kids tell him they are going to play dodgeball, the teams being "drys vs.
    wets." This is a reference to Prohibition, the movement in the 1920s that led to the ban of alcohol. Those who supported the ban were called "drys," and those who opposed it were called "wets".
  • Presto - Mr. Turner said he would go get the "Salad Shooter"; The Salad Shooter is a home appliance manufactured by Presto.
  • The Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres - When Wanda said, "We're going to Fairy World," and the words "Fairy World" zoom in 3D, it was a parody of how they would do it with the words "A Filmways" at the end of both shows.

Running Gags

  • Timmy becoming the wrong animal.


  • Jorgen zaps Timmy's wings off, but when Timmy is back at his house, he has his wings back. It is possible that Timmy wished them back on him.

  • Mr. Turner (while grabbing the cow with the robot): And I can use this for my milk powered engine!
  • Fairy Cow: Moo?

  • Mrs. Turner (while talking to "Timmy"): Oh, sweetie, you feel warm, and you look positively green!
