    Yo Butch you were my favorite show creator and I was so sad when i saw this in my recommended... and i actually cried for 30 minutes. I love your show so much and this is the first show i watched when i was 1 years old. I hope you have more fun making more amazing quality shows and i just really love it. I am a tween and i will hope better content better episodes when you decide to come back or maybe voice a character! Butch i really love your show and you're just amazing.
    -Sincerly yours,
    Nick Fan

    Thank you so much for your amazing animations, I seriously love Fairly Odd Parents. I love the series, I grew up with it (I'm 15 now), it's just part of my life. I sometimes WISH that I have my own Fairly Odd Parents, LOL! Seriously though, I do that... A lot. I mean, come one, who wouldn't want to have one or two? I can have a PS4 just by saying "I wish I have a PS4!" That would be a dream come true, literally. But yeah, thank you so much Butch, I may have not known you when I was still young (I just found out that you're the animator of one of my favorite shows in the world), but I'm hella glad that I know you now thanks to your TVclip channel, I don't know when your YT channel started but yeah. Again, thank you so many much, I'm excited for your future projects, I WISH you won't stop yet! 😊

    What really brings me security is that when a man like you says that your working on some cool stuff, I can trust that you really are doing great things because of your track record. Keep up the great work, you have my support and I appreciate your sharing of your faith.

  • Sharky Overlord
    Sharky Overlord 7 days ago

    Ahh, I see. So it was less of a disappointment or problem with the way things were at Nick, it was more of a move towards the auteur type of control over what you make. I respect that. It can be disappointing to work very hard on something and have it be shot down or feel like you aren't in charge of the situation when it comes to your creative vision. Good luck in all your future ventures Butch

    Just found your channel. Wow I loved fairly odd parents and also watched Danny Phantom as well growing up with that was on Nick. Like your daughter, I too was born in December however I'm a '93 baby. Nick & Disney just aren't the same anymore I've grown up just like everyone from the shows I loved to watch. #90snostalgia

    Nobody see it anymore! Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and all of those channels are not the same as they used to be 10 years ago! 10 years ago they were interesting, creative and really entertaining nowadays it’s pretty boring with no soul and purpose as they used to be. Internet it’s the friend of this new generation, I’m glad to be able to say i watched everything grow and changed.

    Don't sell material. The best thing you can do is keep the rights of what you make. Even if you make a contract see that you keep most of your material.

    Glory to god the most high. FOP was my jam when I was younger. I lived in a foreign country so I didn’t get many channels in English. Nick was one of the few channels I had, and we never missed an episode! Thank you for creating a cartoon that was a major part of my childhood 🌹
