"This was the last straw. The final nail in the coffin. At this point, The Fairly OddParents had been going on for like 9 seasons. So I guess they felt like it was time to add an interesting twist to the show so that things wouldn't get stale. I get it, but man, at least do it in a way that dosen't seem like the biggest middle finger to your longtime fans. I don't think Chloe was a bad idea. She could've worked for one episode. But then have her be a side character from then on out. But nope, instead let's make her a main character, change the theme song, and completely rewrite the entire concept behind the show to fit her in. Remember when this character was first announced and how much backlash the show got for this decision? It was not pretty let me tell you and believe it or not, it gets even worse."— Made2Express
Chloe Carmichael is the co-protagonist of The Fairly OddParents from its tenth season. She is Timmy Turner's new neighbor and he also has to share his fairies with her as of the premiere of season 10, due to a shortage of fairy godparents being available to children. She is voiced by Kari Wahlgren and was introduced in season 10's first episode, "The Big Fairy Share Scare".
Why She Should've Been Replaced with Tootie
- She is the primary example of a Mary Sue. She is a "perfect" character with little to no flaws and often steals the spotlight from Timmy.
- Her voice is very annoying and revolting to listen to, due to her voice actress, Kari Wahlgren, yelling at the majority of her lines.
- She also nearly destroys the sole purpose of why kids should have fairy godparents. She only got fairy godparents because she tries to make friends and be a good kid but ends up destroying cities apparently, meaning the reason she got fairies is only because she was "accident-prone".
- Plus, her debut episode and other episodes contradict this, as she has multiple friends, and even talks to the president. If she had a bad history of ruining towns, why would this happen?
- She is supposedly a "female foil" attempt for Timmy. We already have Vicky for that, so it renders her existence pointless. In fact, Vicky's sister Tootie would have been a better foil as both her and Timmy despise Vicky.
- There is evidence that she supports communism ("The Big Fairy Share Scare" is an example)!
- She manages to make a "can-do" attitude come off as annoying.
- She is a mean-spirited jerk who has a large ego due to her Mary Sue status and drags her friends (especially Timmy) into all sorts of dangerous endeavors or otherwise annoying and shaming them. One major example was in "Hare Raiser", where she frees a savage bunny named Mr. Cuddles against Timmy's wishes.
- She is more focused on than Poof in season 10, due to her being the creator's pet (or in this case, executive's pet, as the conception of her was the result of executive meddling), similar to Timmy's Dad, Mr. Crocker, and Sparky, where many of the episodes were rehashed for the sake of shoehorning her in the episode. As a result, Poof is absent in all of season 10 but with the exception of only one episode, "Certifiable Super Sitter". This also results in her appearing in too many episodes, and she appears in all of the episodes.
- She has uncomfortable nervous breakdowns and panic attacks at the very mention of her possibly making a bad choice or failing to accomplish something (especially if the word "quit" is involved). Not only is this unsettling, it shows a dark side to her determination status.
- Along with Sparky, she is a completely unnecessary character to be in the show. In fact, many can consider her one of, if not, the official poster child for pointless characters who only exist to boost a show's ratings.
- In "Certifiable Super Sitter", she freely admits (in a kids show) that she has a disturbing fetish for smelling...babies heads, even loudly proclaiming "'And from the looks of Poof, he's all head!".
- She became less of a Mary Sue as season 10 went on, which was a slight improvement in her characterization.
- She does try to do good things for the world and is a nice person.
- Like most Butch Hartman characters, she has a memorable design.
- When Karl Wahlrgren is not screaming her lines, her voice can be tolerable.
