Butch Hartman, Creator of ‘Fairly Odd Parents’ & ‘Danny Phantom’ Leaves Nickelodeon After 20 Years

Butch Hartman, creator of Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, and T.U.F.F. Puppy, has announced that he is leaving Nickelodeon after twenty years.

The video below was posted on Hartman’s YouTube channel and the 14 minute video is definitely worth a watch if you were a fan of any of his series.

I grew up with Fairly Odd Parents and Danny Phantom. Both were big parts of my childhood. Danny Phantom was one of my favorite animated series. Actually, where was it on the Top 100 list Sailor?

I look forward in seeing where Hartman’s career takes him next. Do you have a favorite show Hartman was a part of?

  • Manuel Orozco

    I have no doubt. I just need to wait until all 5 parts on demand

  • Peacesquad

    Oh okay. Spider island comes right after that. You won’t be disappointed they fairly step up their game

  • Manuel Orozco

    I last watched the four part Doc Ock arc

  • Peacesquad

    The 5-part arc? Which episode you on?

  • Manuel Orozco

    I haven’t seen Spider Island yet

  • Peacesquad

    Yeah I’ve been watching the new Spider-Man series I’m on spider island part 5. It really suprised me the plot is pretty new I think I don’t read the comics

  • Manuel Orozco

    The new Spider Man show is awesome. So are Tangled and Ducktales. And I agree about insulting intelligence because I wasn’t great with the child neglect concept s a kid. Or abusive parents for that matter

  • Peacesquad

    I prefer cartoons the line of Young Justice, Airbender, Korra, Spectacular Spider-Man. Great action drama shows that have good writing and animation and don’t insult the viewers intelligence

  • Manuel Orozco

    I mean both shows were awesome for a while. But I nowadays rather watch cartoon characters to root for to get out of their time of misfortune. Even if some characters were completely laughable.

  • Peacesquad

    Same here

  • Manuel Orozco

    I do like slapstick but not when it’s all mean spirited. Fairly Oddparents and Spingebob don’t even interest me anymore. That’s why I said early years.

  • Peacesquad

    Yeah they’ve dumbed down cartoons even by slapstick standards. Avatar and avatar Korra didn’t insult their audience lol

  • Manuel Orozco

    There hasn’t been a single Nicktoon that has really interested me since the original Avatar. Man have times changed a bit

  • Manuel Orozco

    I was a bigger fan of Fairly Oddparents in the early years than Danny Phantom. I’m going to miss all the crazy childhood memories Mr. Hartman has given us!

  • Peacesquad

    Stopped watching Nickelodeon after Korra ended lol but sad, I loved FOP and Danny phantom. Tuff puppy wasn’t my cup of tea really

  • Danny Phantom is a cult favorite!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He was certainly a talent but none of his shows made my list

  • ResonanceCascade

    I was a couple years too old for The Fairly Odd Parents, but looking at his IMDB page, I definitely watched his Cartoon Cartoon shorts and Johnny Bravo episodes. The guy is certainly a big talent.
