Butch Hartman Leaves Nickelodeon

Latest News & Videos

Just deal with it!
With Bunsen is a Beast ending next month, with no Season 2 renewal, what do you think show creator Butch Hartman will do after the show ends, especially now that The Fairly OddParents has finally ended? Besides starting production on his new, Danny Phantom-like cartoon for YouTube and looking after The Noog Network, I think he should make a big screen movie.

If the show doesn't make a second season, I bet Butch would likely just make another Nick show.

Bunsen will actually still have one episode left after next month (or maybe 2 now since the Christmas special is no longer airing on the main channel, not 100% sure about that though), though yah, it's probably done. We're also still to 100% sure about FOP. I am leaning towards it being done, but you never know with this show.

Didn't instagram says Bunsen's christmas special will air on Nicktoons Dec 18, at least "Sat Dec 18", but Dec 18 is a Monday.. so either is has to be Mon Dec 18

The reason I said I said I wasn't 100% sure is because it said December 18 is a Saturday. I'm honestly not sure what they're doing now. I'm actually not sure if whoever is running the social media pages knows either. The Nick Animation Twitter said that it was airing on Nicktoons Saturday at 11 A.M. before I asked and they deleted and posted a Tweet with the time on the main channel.

I'm not sure. Keep in mind that Fairly OddParents gets cancelled more than most shows. It keeps coming back. Bunsen is probably done though, but you never know. Although Bunsen is a Nicktoons exclusive now, as is Fairly OddParents

I think he's going to be involved with those 3 cartoons he's producing, as well as focusing more on his YouTube stuff.

Honestly, it's nice to have a break from his stuff, I feel like he's a little overworked. He's the new Klasky Csupo in terms of how many shows he created.

Since production on Bunsen would’ve ended long ago, Butch should be busy at his new job Pocket.watch. He’ll still be running the Noog Network, and making content on his YouTube channel. He’ll be kept busy for a while, but I don’t think we’ll be seeing many cartoons from him on TV for a while.

Would be a good opportunity for Nickelodeon to request a show idea from Hartman and have somebody else in charge of it.

I think once Bunsen ends, Butch will probably be more involved with his YouTube channel (he actually has a live show at this moment). Hopefully, Nickelodeon will allow him to get the Danny Phantom TV movie, since he has shown interest in finishing Danny Phantom and I would love to see where Danny Phantom would go at this point.

Updating, Butch Hartman has left Nickelodeon. Now it seems that Butch is going an independent route in developing shows on his own.

CALLED IT!!!!!

R.I.P. Butch Hartman @ Nickelodeon: 1998-2018

If you also noticed in the video above, Bunsen is a Beast never got a second season renewal, which means that "Friend or Phony"/"Beauty or the Beast", airing February 10 @ 4:45 AM on Nicktoons, will be the last episode of the series.

There hasn't been much on TV in the last few months, so I started watching G.I. Joe Renegades reruns. Kinda like it.

One of the good things about Disney's Fox acquisition is that they finally acquired the distribution rights to A New Hope. I hope they can re-release the original trilogy without the Special Edition alterations.
Don't just kinda TV. Time Warner Cable is now WarnerMedia Satellite by AT&T|DIRECTV.
Vasantham has arrived.
