    1. Butch Hartman hey do you still own the/ partial rights to all of your characters. Or is it simply nick owns all of it and you where contracted like? Also I’m sure you love having this freedom lol.

    2. Butch Hartman Bring back Danny Phantom but keep it the same, don’t change it up like the cartoons shows out now. For example Ben 10, they really mess up that show

    1. Daniel Goodsier some of the details are wrong, the 2 groups were actually anti-phans and true phans. They were fighting because the anti-phans wanted to post danny phantom slash and they were banned from posting it from the danny phantom forums, the mods said they were banned because of orders from butch himself and they couldn’t post slash on other sites too unless they wanted to be banned. The true phans were on butch side and said they dont want danny phantom to be «filthy» with slash, so both sides started a fandom war. Nick canceling danny phantom because of the slash is probably false though I cant confirm it.

    1. For a second I thought that too, but the thumbnail didn’t really look 100% serious and that’d be some heavy stuff to address. I wonder if Butch even knows about that…I honestly half hope he doesn’t since he seems like the type who’d be very upset by it but I’ve suspected that might have been the reason he started saying the ghosts were actually »monster from another dimension».

    1. It’s yo Danny Phantom not young.

      I’m a fan of Danny Phantom and have heard theme song way too many times to «misquote» the word.

      There is no possible way it’s «young» it may be what Butch wrote in the lyrics but when you listen to the theme song you clearly hear «yo» not «young».

    1. Yea hearing it right now to make sure it is Yo… But I’m pretty sure it was Young… I think the controversy is that they did a switch somewhere switching it from young to yo or vice versa. And they’re going like it’s — not — creating the controversy.

  1. Dear Butch Hartman,
    Did you wonder how Walt Disney was so successful well I’m here to tell you how Oaxis entertainment can be successful.
    *1* Stay in control
    The first thing that we can learn from Disney as an entrepreneur is his love for drawing. He devoted most of his life to his art that he was even willing to work other jobs just to fund his passion.
    Disney went through a series of odd jobs and even became an ambulance driver in the army during World War I along with his friend Ray Kroc (the man who made McDonalds what it is today); and throughout this journey, Disney found his love for drawing.
    *2* You must be a salesman
    Sales gets a bad reputation, but make no mistake, selling is the most important skill you can master. And as Walt said, dreams take money and money comes from selling. Walt believed in himself and his dreams and could therefore convince others to believe in him too. Halfway through making Snow White, Disney ran out of money to finish the film that was termed “Disney’s Folly.” Even his own family begged him to give it up, but Disney was undeterred. He personally traveled to different producers and showed them the raw footage and convinced them to finish financing the film. Snow White became an instant success and ushered in the Golden Age of Animation.
    *3* Leadership is inspiration, innovation and focus
    The key to Walt Disney’s leadership is that he was an incredible storyteller. It’s one thing to tell your employees to do something, it’s another to inspire them to action. Walt would tell them a story. He would go into extreme detail and make it come alive for them. He would inspire his workers and make them a part of that story and as a result he would get more from them. When he was first pitching his animators on the story of Snow White, he went through the entire story, acting out the characters, even doing their different voices and movements. Walt had a unique ability to hire people more talented than he was and to focus and coordinate their attention towards a common goal.
    *4* Embrace new technology
    The 1920s and ’30s were a much more low-tech age, but they were also a time of innovations: New inventions like Technicolor and sound were seen as daring risks for filmmakers. Actors, directors and even some audiences vehemently disliked talking pictures. However, as Wesley Stout of the Saturday Evening Post predicted, people eventually adapted their ears — and their eyes — and Disney cashed in. He also created the first full-length animated movie (“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”), and, according to Entrepreneur, was the first Hollywood studio head to get on board with television, which turned out to be quite lucrative, as the famous “Mickey Mouse Club” enthralled kids everywhere while providing advertising for the Disney brand.
    *5* Develop a high tolerance for risk
    Walt took a lot of risks in his career. Several times the future of the entire Disney company hung on whether a venture was a success or failure. A few times Walt even had to mortgage or sell his personal possessions. He never did this lightly. He would carefully weigh out both sides and make a decision for bold action and, once decided, never wavered.
    In 1955, Disneyland was the biggest gamble in the history of American business. Walt struggled to find financing and his own family, including business partner Roy Disney, begged him to give it up. If Disneyland had failed, it would have bankrupted the company. Today, the Disney theme parks bring in BILLIONS of revenue and millions of visitors each year.
    *6* Change your attitude towards failure
    Walt Disney failed, a lot. His first studio, Laugh O’ Grams never made a profit. But the most notable is the fiasco of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. He lost everything, his studio, his equipment, his animators and his creations. But from the ashes of that immense failure rose one of the most beloved characters ever created. On the train home from learning he had lost Oswald, Walt created Mickey Mouse.
    *7* Believe in yourself
    Walt Disney had a unique relationship with his brother, Roy Disney. Walt would pitch an idea to Roy. Roy would say no and try to talk him out of it. Walt would continue anyway, and Roy would eventually give in and get the project financed. Throughout his entire career Walt was told what couldn’t be done. He was told no one would sit through an animated feature film. He was told you couldn’t mix animation with real life actors. He was told his idea for a theme park would fail miserably. Someone even told him that Mickey Mouse was a bad idea because a mouse would frighten women. He proved that just because it hasn’t been done before doesn’t make it impossible. Impossible is a word of a small minded person and Walt Disney dreamed big. He had an unshakable belief in himself and what he was doing; that was all that mattered.
    *8* Build an empire
    After Disneyland came Disney World, and with those ventures came several Disney-centric TV shows used to promote the theme parks. Shows like “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color,” originally called “Disneyland,” made kids fall in love with the Disney brand and demand trips to Disneyland — and the only reason they were put on the air was because Disney had made a deal with television studios in which they financed Disneyland in exchange for original Disney programming. One thing built upon another, and the Disney empire began to grow.
    *9* Resiliency is an entrepreneur’s best friend
    It took Walt 16 years to get the rights to make Mary Poppins, now considered one of the best films of that time. The problems he faced with author P.L Travers are so infamous it has been made into its own movie. He was turned down 302 times when trying to find financing for Disneyland before striking a deal with the television studios. And in the most unbelievable story, he was fired from his first job ever at a newspaper for not being creative and innovative enough! He went on to own that same company. Resiliency is the ability to withstand or recover quickly from difficult circumstances.
    *10* Look for inspiration in unexpected places
    When Disney was penniless and living out of his office in Kansas City, while working for an animated advertising company, he encountered a lot of mice. He got the idea for Steamboat Willie from the mice that used to gather in his trashcan; one of them was his “particular friend.” Disney used a seemingly hopeless time in his life for inspiration and went on to wild success with Steamboat Willie, proving that good ideas can be found even in the trash.

  2. Butch you honestly MADE my childhood.
    Think you could do a video where you draw Danny Phantom characters in the four nations of Avatar the Last Airbender?
    That’d be dope.

    1. He made 2 goods shows (until their later on seasons)
      1 decent show
      and 1 shameless cash grab.
      If your childhood was those 4 shows you had a shitty one.

  3. Thank goodness this has been adressed, now i can finally sleep at night

    On an unrelated note, I watched Phantom Thread the other day and was very disappointed that it wasn’t about Danny Phantom

  4. I still hear “yo” though. You sure the guy rapping (don’t know his name) didn’t say “yo” instead of “young”? Still, one of my fav theme songs from my childhood

  5. For me, the confusion has always been that in the song itself, it definitely sounds like a long O, (ergo, «yo») so I think the issue is more that the singer’s diction isn’t as clear as it could be.

  6. Finding out is “Yo Danny Fenton” is actually “Young Danny Fenton” is the same feeling like realizing the song Buy U a Drink by T-Pain is “And then” instead of “Ooo Wee”

  7. Ok, Butch, I went to the official Danny Phantom theme song on Nick’s youtube channel, and played it at .25 speed, it is Yo, you may have written young, but the performer, did not say it, he said «Yo»

  8. I hope Oaxis brings back good writing to family entertainment. I miss the days of courage the cowardly dog and Samurai Jack where S+P would force people to think outside the box

  9. The REAL Danny Phantom controversy is whether or not Nickelodeon will give/sell back the rights so you can continue with the show (or spin off) on your new network!

    Because that’s what everyone wants 🙂

    1. Some people are less then pleased with some of the stuff hes been putting out and would rather He not be in charge not saying I agree but there are people that do’nt trust Butch anymore

  10. it is YO in the dutch translation.
    Yo, Danny Phantom was pas veertien jaar, en zijn pa en ma waren een beetje raar! Want ze zetten een spookportaal in elkaar.

    Spoken zet je schrap want hier is Danny Phantom!

    Maar het weigerde dienst, dus het had geen zin. Maar Danny nam een kijkje binnenin.
    Er was een grote flits, en bem heel bizar, raakten al zijn moleculen door de war!

    spoken zet je schrap want hier is Danny Phantom!

    Toen hij wakker werd, zag hij tot zijn schrik, hij had sneeuwwit haar en een groene blik!

    Hij kon alles doen, wat een spook ook kan; daar werd ie een stuk zelfverzekerder van!

    Nu krijgt hij af en toe zelfs een visioen; maar weet hij ook wat hem staat te doen?!
    En geeft alle spoken van katoen!

    Spoken zet je schrap want hier is Danny Phantom!

    and the opening line the: he’s a phantom is translated to yo wie ken hem (yo who knows him in english)

  11. The music comes with syllables in it words that rhyme it’s like a poem that’s my story of music anyway Butch thanks for telling me the meaning and controversy about Danny Phantom’s theme song this can help me do things someday it’s gonna be awesome.

  12. Danny phantom only had 3 season which was a let down why does nick do this at least Cartoon Network gives show 4 or 5 seasons before there end. Not fair. I really wanted to see more phantom.

    1. For a second I thought it was going to be about the fan art that was going across the internet making people think that there will be a reboot

    2. I worked nights for 2.5 years before I finally said “either I get off the shift or go to another company.” That gig is hard enough without getting shot by some arm-holding brony.

  13. Butch I need more episodes of Danny phantom I don’t know what to do I literally asked the teacher for our school concert could we do the Danny phantom Theme he said no and started laughing at my btw I love your videos about Danny and do you know why they took Danny phantom off Netflix

  14. It may be «young» in the English version, BUT the German version does start with «yo!» so you could still say both are correct in a way 😉

  15. I’m 14. And whenever I hear any of your shows theme songs especially the Danny phantom theme I almost teleport to the room and scream the lyrics… 14 people

  16. Sorry Butch I’m a fan of Danny Phantom but «young Danny Phantom» doesn’t make sense in a hip hop type song.

    I clearly remember «yo Danny Phantom» not «young Danny Phantom».

  17. “-He’s a phantom
    -Danny phantom
    -Yo! Danny phantom he was just fourteen
    -His parents built a very strange machine
    -Design to view a world unseen
    -He’s going to catch them all cause he Danny phantom
    -when it didn’t quite work, his folks want quit
    -with one big flash, his molecules got rearrange “

    Yeah I check the song said yo so it probably wasn’t butch fault but the singer. A miscommunication error. Just check the song yourself and listen to it closely and you hear yo.

  18. I feel like people are gonna want Danny Phantom on Oaxis, his new channel which is getting funds right now, but I dont think he can cause even though he made it, pretty sure it’s under nickelodeon’s right, so unless Nickelodeon wants to give Butch the right to Danny Phantom, I dont think it will come back.

  19. Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum

    He’s a phantom

    Young Danny Fenton, he was just 14 when his parents built a very strange machine. It was designed to view a world unseen.

    *Gotta catch em all cuz he’s Danny Phantom*

    When it didn’t quite work, his folks, they just quit. Then Danny took a look inside of it. There was a great, big flash, everything just changed. His molecules were all rearranged.


    When Danny woke up, he realized he had snow white hair and glowin’ green eyes. He could walk through walls, disappear and fly. He’s much more unique than the other guy. But then Danny knew what he had to do. He gotta stop all the ghosts who are coming through.

    He’s here to fight for me and you!!

    Gotta catch em all cuz he’s Danny Phantom

    Gotta catch em all cuz he’s Danny Phantom

    Gotta catch em all cuz he’s


    * punches ghost *

    Can I get a heart now?

    1. PansexualPrincess you know getting mad at someone who knows the killing and did they’re research on it. But instead you decided oh he’s being offensive knowing damn good well he didn’t say anthing anti-trans i mean really.

    2. Green Wave 2018 there’s a big difference there, like, a better comparison would be teaching about the Holocaust while constantly using the word k*ke.
      No one even calls the incident that, and the people who do *are being transphobic.*

  20. Mr Hartman you NEED to do a 10 years later of Danny’s classmates Dash, Paulina, Valerie and Kwan. Love to see their growth in 10 years after
