Butch Hartman is most well-known for being the creator of The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom. Both of those shows were amazing as a kid. Well, he recently took to YouTube to explain that he left his home of 20 years, Nickelodeon. It’s crazy to think that Fairly OddParents is 20 years old, and it is sad that he has left the studio, but as he says in the video, this stuff happens. It’s great to see Hartman be positive about Nickelodeon and the future. In the video, he also talks about his history at the studio and how Fairly OddParents started with just 6 episodes they had to keep rerunning for a while. The part that made me the maddest was him talking about how Nickelodeon has the rights to Danny Phantom and therefore he can’t do much with it, but on the bright side, Hartman has said he will do as much as he is legally able to with his characters including Danny Phantom.

Towards the end of the video, Hartman reveals that he’s working on a number of projects and he’s even considering self-releasing a new show on his YouTube channel. That would be awesome! That would be a way for him to maintain control of the property which could lead to some awesome things in the future. Also, don’t forget to check out his app The Noog Network for more Hartman fun.
