The series originated from shorts on the animation showcase, Oh Yeah! Cartoons, airing from 1998 to 2001. It was later picked up as a series due to its popularity. Originally, it ended in 2006 totaling five seasons, but resumed production in 2008. It is produced by Frederator Studios, Nickelodeon Animation Studios and, as of season 6, Billionfold Inc.
The Fairly OddParents is the second longest-running Nicktoon, behind SpongeBob SquarePants (in terms of years run).
