Goofs

The painting error.

  • When Norm poofs up a cup and ice cream, the ice cream is chocolate, but when he's in the same frame as Crocker, it's vanilla, then turns chocolate again after Crocker shakes it up. It could be possible that it was surrounded by regular milk, but there's no frame seen where Norm adds milk.
  • Before Crocker paints Trixie on the stone wall, the paint on the paint brush is brown, but after he paints her, it's purple.
  • It is unknown why Crocker could have simply just used his third wish to make unlimited wishes instead of constantly wishing for 3 more wishes, because in Genie Meanie Minie Mo, Norm said that his wishes are rule-free, though this could because Norm never told Crocker that.
  • The cardboard has three drawers. When Crocker pulls up the drawer named, “Diabolical Plans O-S”, the said drawer is above one of the two drawers. However, in the next scene, the said drawer is below the other two drawers.
  • Crocker is behind the small yellow mountain when Timmy rides the bike through the tunnel on the stone wall with Trixie jumping on the bike with him. However, Crocker’s position changes from behind the small yellow mountain to in front of the painting on the stone wall that he draws in the next scene by one frame. Also, Timmy and Trixie disappears in the next scene by one frame simultaneously.
  • Crocker paints a road with a white line in the tunnel that leads to the city on the stone wall. However, after Timmy rides the bike through the tunnel to the city through the stone wall with Trixie jumping on the bike with him, there is a yellow ground with a white line that leads to the city in the middle of the stone wall that Crocker hasn’t painted yet.
  • Crocker paints a white line on a yellow ground and in a tunnel on the stone wall with a magic paintbrush. However, when Crocker says, “I’ll still get you, Timmy Turner. I’ll get you and your...”, there is a white road that matches the road in the tunnel and there is no white line in the tunnel.
  • Crocker is covered partially with feathers and his face is covered with red ashes. However, when he says, “There, there, Norm. It isn’t entirely your fault.”, there are no feathers around his body and his face is normal.

Running Gags

  • Crocker wishing for three more wishes and Norm granting them.
  • Norm insisting that Crocker wish Timmy to Mars, where Timmy would suffocate due to the lack of oxygen.
  • Crocker saying "Fairy Godparents" in different poses.
  • Crocker's plans failing.
