      Butch Hartman I also watch Fairly oddParents and Danny Phantom, but I also saw the episodes you worked on in Johnny Bravo, my favorite was the one with Adam West you did with Seth MacFarlane and my favorite Danny Phantom episode is the Ember Maclain one.

    I turn 18 literally Sunday your shoes have been in my life since I was a baby. I can't believe that you're leaving. It is really a end to a millennial. This is crazy. Your shows were the only good shows left and now you're gone it's not going to make it. I stopped watching tv after you made tuff puppy. It's really sad how tv is now.

    Thank you so much for all the childhood memories and pleasure you brought me and countless others of my generation, Mr. Hartman. God bless you for all that you've done to make our lives funnier. I think it's high time the series ended anyway, I hoped it would have ended around when I stopped watching (circa 2010) but I'll be sure to tune-in for the series finale!

    Fairly Odd Parents was one of the shows that inspired me to draw, I remember trying to draw one of the Pixies because I loved their pointy hats. Seeing the animator that made my childhood with that show and Danny Phantom is heart breaking, I feel like an era is ending, but I'm glad you're going to keep making shows. :)

    Butch, thanks for the memories. The first few seasons of Fairly Oddparents were a big part of the end of my childhood. Totally forgot about Oh Yeah Cartoons but that was a great show.
    Off topic, has anyone mentioned you have a crazy resemblance to Jason Bateman?

    I really wanna become just like you! You are an inspiration. Its just that pursuing a job along your lines is very unlikely, and Ive also heard its an unstable occupation. Im scared that if I try to pursue something like this, I’ll end up having financial issues, and even worse end up unemployed. I would love to pursue my dream, but at the same time; also have a stable job to nurture my parents. Would you mind sharing advice on how you got to the position that you were previously in?

    I’m an atheist, but I still loved Danny Phantom. Glad you had a good run even if Nickelodeon doesn’t know what it wants to be. Keep creating what you like, same goes for all creatives. But stay far away from Hollywood, go to Netflix instead.

    I’ve watched TV shows by you since I was about three. I watched FOP, TUFF Puppy and Danny Phantom and enjoyed every second of doing so. I’ve spent 10 years watching your shows and it saddens me that you’re leaving Nickelodeon. But I understand why you have done so and will continue watching your content whenever you release it.
    Thank you, Butch Hartman. You’re just too amazing for words.
