"Fairly OddParents" fans, rejoice (and get some eggnog): It's time for Nickelodeon's Emmy Award-winning animated series to get a live-action holiday spin in the upcoming TV movie "A Fairly Odd Christmas," a sequel to 2011's wildly popular live-action TV movie, "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!"
"A Fairly Odd Christmas" features two big-time Nick stars: Drake Bell of "Drake & Josh" fame as Timmy Turner, and Daniella Monet from "Victorious" as Tootie (both of whom starred in the first "Fairly Odd" flick).
In this exclusive clip, we see Timmy, Tootie, and company in quite a minty predicament. Previously, Timmy (and his neon hat) had been globe-trotting and granting children's wishes. Not surprisingly, his seemingly good deed didn't go over well with Old Saint Nick. On the gang's quest to right his wrong, they find that smack-dab in the middle of their path is a chasm, and not just any chasm: It's the dreaded cracked candy cane chasm made entirely of ancient razor-sharp broken candy canes. Ouch! But it's the only way to the forbidden forest.

Drake starts to wonder if traversing the seemingly endless gap is the best idea, but Tootie has no fear. She grabs an intact candy cane, swings it over a hovering cord, and ziplines over the shards. Everyone sucks up their fear and follows suit. Looks pretty fun! The gang survives this challenge, but it remains to be seen if they'll save Christmas.
To find out if Timmy destroys Christmas, or if he and his friends find a way to save the day (holiday, that is), tune in to "It's a Fairly Odd Christmas" on Thursday, 11/29 at 7 PM on Nickelodeon.
