Did You Know?


The Whole show, in some way or another, revolves around names of ghosts or spirits. (The high school is called "Casper High" referring to Casper the friendly ghost.) Also, the town they live in is called Amity Park referring to the Amityville where ghosts/spirits caused a man to kill his family. Also, Danny's high school mascot is a raven, referring to Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem, 'The Raven'. See more »

One of the best shows on Nick
16 November 2004 | by (Manila, Philippines) – See all my reviews

Danny Phantom is definitely a winner.

Though it may have its flaws, it is most certainly better than most other shows on Nick (asides Fairly Oddparents and Teenage Robot, to start with)and other cartoon channels.

The sarcasm and humor actually keep you laffin' your butt off for quite awhile. Esp with the repeated teasing that grown-ups can't catch the "lingo" of our generation.

The characters are realistic enough, a "modest" computer-addicted best friend--Tucker, and a Goth activist (I still have to meet a Goth girl who's as interested in greens and amphibians) girl best friend, Sam. I still object to the whole Danny+Sam thing; it won't work.

My school doesn't have a football team so I still don't see what the big deal is with quarterbacks and bullying. Too much time with pigskins, I guess. ;p

Danny Fentem is my supreme favorite cuz he shows 2 sides of himself: the shy Danny Fentem who goes through life trying to get a girlfriend (?) and get by school, and his alter-ego with the unique costume (which fits his identity as a ghost boy)--Danny Phantom. Plus, he's cute (?).

To Mr Hartman: I salute you! Awesome work! ;p
