This is the first and only episode where Jorgen is evil and plans on taking over the world.
This episode would be considered the one true time that Cosmo and Wanda were about to be killed off when their magic were drained. However, due to the time of the wish being in an action world, it was for PG-13 drama and ended when Jorgen was defeated (restoring all the fairies to normal).
This episode was ranked #22 in the 100 Greatest Nicktoon Episodes countdown.
This was the second time Timmy wished before he was about to sleep. The first time was in Christmas Everyday.
This is one of the only two episodes where the ending card is animated. The other being Old Man And The C-.
Timmy said that he wished he would have wished for an action-packed life years ago. However, he has not even had Cosmo and Wanda for a year in this episode, according to Abra-Catastrophe!.
Timmy could be referring to his life before he got his fairies.
Although "Action Packed" and "Smarty Pants" aired on March 22, 2002, they were actually produced in 2001 according to the credits.
Mr. Turner (while reading the newspaper): News... Same. Sports... Same. Weather... Hey!
Mr. Turner: Same.
Wanda: Wow, it's both violent and stupid!
Cosmo: I know! I would have settled for just one.
Jorgen: I, Jorgen von Strangle, very tough fairy and obligatory action movie villain, and my kitty, Mr. Tulip-toes...
(Jorgen snuggled with Mr. Tulip-toes a bit)
Jorgen: ...KITTY KITTY KITTY
(Jorgen resumed what he was doing prior to snuggling his cat)
Jorgen: ...are planning to kidnap all the fairies in the world! And then, using my brilliant magic-siphoning invention, I will suck the magic out of their pathetic fairy bodies...and transfer it into my wand! (he tossed the cat into the trash) HAHAHA!
Wanda: Timmy, help! He's taking our magic!
Cosmo: Uhh... I like older women, but, wait, wait! Stop!
Jorgen (while laughing evilly): Soon, the world will be mine!
