There's no hard and fast rule at Toobworld Central about characters in the Tooniverse having live-action counterparts in Earth Prime-Time. (The main points of contention are the aging factor for those characters and the anthropomorphic animals like Brian Griffin of 'Family Guy'.) It's something that would have to be taken on a case by case basis. At best, the live-action cartoon characters usually end up in Skitlandia.
Word has come out though that Nickelodeon will produce a TV movie in which Timmy Turner and most of the characters of 'The Fairly Odd Parents' will be translated into flesh and blood rather than pen and ink.

The basic plot has Drake Bell (of "Drake and Josh") playing Timmy Turner as a twenty-something who's still in the fifth grade. Timmy refuses to grow up because it would mean the loss of Cosmo and Wanda and all that they could do for him.
"A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" also stars Jason Alexander as Cosmo and Cheryl Hines as Wanda, and it will be shown next year.
