Nickelodeon has launched The Fairly Odd Phantom, an original digital short that brings together characters from four of creator Butch Hartman’s popular animated shows for the first time.
Now available across Nick.com, Facebook and the net’s YouTube page, The Fairly Odd Phantom ensemble cast includes Danny Phantom, Wanda, Cosmo and Timmy from The Fairly OddParents, Dudley Puppy and Kitty Katswell from T.U.F.F. Puppy, and Bunsen from Hartman’s newly launched series, Bunsen is a Beast.
The short follows a ghost-capturing experiment gone wrong for Danny Phantom and his friends, after Dudley Puppy interferes in their lab and accidentally teleports Wanda, Cosmo, Timmy and Bunsen into their world.
To support the project, Danny Phantom voice cast members David Kaufman, Grey Griffin, Rickey D’Shon Collins and Colleen O’Shaughnessy are set to appear on a new episode of the Nickelodeon Animation Podcast on February 24.
The episode will be available on iTunes, YouTube, SoundCloud and on nickanimationpodcast.com.
Created in celebration of Nick’s 25-year animation history, The Fairly Odd Phantom follows yesterday’s premiere of Bunsen is a Beast. The show follows the high school adventures of a beast and his human best friend.
Hartman is no stranger to short-form digital content for kids, having launched his own mobile platform, Noog Network, in 2015.
