14 Reasons Why "Danny Phantom" Was The Shit

WHERE IS MY REBOOT?!

Posted on

1. You would have genuinely purchased Ember McLain's album.

Jason Derulo WISHES he was as good at including his name in a song.

2. Unlike most superheroes, who have a set number of abilities, Danny got more powers as the series went on and had to learn how to use them.

Def was a proud parent when Danny was able to use his Ghostly Wail for the first time.

3. The villains were the perfect mix of scary and silly.

The Box Ghost was straight up silly, but most villains were antagonistic and yet also served as comic relief, and it was great.

4. THE COMEBACKS.

Everyone on this show was sassy AF.

5. They did not have to draw Danny that hot, but they did.

10-year-old me was shook.

6. There were a ton of strong female characters that did not take any shit.

Sam, Valerie, Jazz, Maddie, the list goes on. Not only were they badass in their own right, but they were often the reasons why Danny was able to to capture the ghosts.

7. THE THEME SONG IS A BOP.

THE SONGWRITERS DID THAT.

8. Honestly, the humor was just extremely on point.

WITTY AF. You laughed every episode, and your parents would too.

9. You would have actually watched the movies in theaters, they were that good.

Still thinking about the shit that went down with Dark Danny 10+ years later.

10. The show was genuinely scary at times.

The ghost version of Danny straight up murdered human Danny. Not to mention that show covered topics such as possession ("Splitting Images", "Control Freaks") all while balancing it with enough humor.

11. The Fenton Thermos.

Of all the possible ways to get ghost back into the Ghost Zone, I'm so glad it was through a thermos.

12. The Danny/Sam relationship fueled my pre-teen heart.

You better believe I looked up "Danny/Sam Moments" compilations on YouTube all the damn time.

13. "I'M GOING GHOST!"

The Nickelodeon Version of the Sailor Moon transformations, and it was lit.

In a time where classic shows are getting rebooted, we deserve to see Danny go ghost another time.
