"Action Packed" is the first segment of the tenth episode of The Fairly OddParents.
Timmy's life is becoming extremely boring. When he goes to breakfast, his father reads the newspaper, "Sports... Same. News... Same. Weather..Hey!.......... Same.", and at school things are no more interesting. Everything is getting so boring, so Timmy's parents buy an action-packed movie called "Loose Cannon Cop Who Doesn't Play By The Rules!" starring Ryan McCain who pretty much fits the description to the T. Although the Turners parents are disappointed they grabbed the wrong movie, Timmy pleads them to watch it, who loves it and wishes that he had a life with action in every second. When he wakes up the next morning, his alarm clock has turned into a bomb, so Timmy jumps out of bed and through a variety of action-filled traps, such as a snake pit, before he reaches the kitchen where his parents, now dressed like secret agents, are eating breakfast in the most exaggerated action filled way possible. Timmy is late for school, so he uses a jet pack to get there in a hurry. While there he fights ninjas inside the school gym. While he fights off the ninjas, Cosmo and Wanda are captured by Jorgen who has turned evil (as opposed to just plain mean).
Jorgen wants to drain the magic out of all the fairies and become the most powerful one ever. Cosmo, Wanda, and a few other fairies are drained out in a somewhat frightening magic draining scene. The machine makes them appear older, then they turned into dust and disintegrate, leaving nothing but their floating crowns behind. Timmy fights Jorgen, but he is no match against him. Suddenly, Jorgen's cat Mr. Tulip Toes attacks Jorgen and rips him up while Timmy sets the machine in reverse (while also breaking the control lever in the process), turning Jorgen into a weak skeleton-like figure, who is easily dispatched by Timmy.
Cosmo and Wanda are freed, so Timmy wishes for everything to be back to normal. Back at home, Timmy's parents are watching another action movie and Dad wishes he had an action-packed life. Timmy, from his own experiences, states to his dad to trust him on not wanting that. Timmy then offers to watch a Disease of the Week movie which his dad agrees to watching.
