"A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" is Nickelodeon's first-ever, live-action and CG-animated TV movie that celebrates 10 years of the animated series "The Fairly OddParents."

Starring Nick favorites Drake Bell ("Drake & Josh)" and Daniella Monet ("Victorious"), the hour-long original TV movie follows the adventures of a now 23-year-old Timmy Turner (Bell) who refuses to grow up in order to keep his fairy godparents. Timmy's resolve to stay a kid forever is tested when the once gawky, now gorgeous Tootie (Monet) returns to town and he must choose between her and his beloved magical fairy godparents. The movie, from series creator Butch Hartman, also features TV veterans Jason Alexander ("Seinfeld"), Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") and Steven Weber ("Parenthood").

"A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" centers on Timmy Turner, but unlike the series, Timmy is no longer a 10-year-old-boy—he is 23, still lives at home and is still in the 5th grade. Timmy's arrested development stems from his desire to keep his beloved fairy godparents, Cosmo (played by Alexander and voiced by Daran Norris, "The Fairly OddParents") and Wanda (played by Hines and voiced by Susanne Blakeslee, "The Fairly OddParents"), because "Da Rules" dictates that godchildren lose their fairies when they grow up. But when Tootie returns to Dimmsdale, Timmy finds himself having grown-up feelings for her. He must decide whether to be an adult and be with the woman he loves, or continue acting like a child to keep the fairy godparents he adores. In the meantime, Hugh J. Magnate, Jr. (Weber), a larger-than-life oil tycoon, turns his attention to capturing Timmy's fairies and using their power to fuel his maniacal ambition.

"A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" is executive produced by Butch Hartman, Lauren Levine, Marjorie Cohn and Fred Seibert. The primetime movie is directed by Savage Steve Holland and written by Butch Hartman and Scott Fellows. "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up," "Timmy Turner!" is produced by Pacific Bay Entertainment.
