Danny Phantom - The pseudonym for Danny Fenton, a 14 year-old boy who was transformed into a ghostly being on the fantasy cartoon series DANNY PHANTOM/NIK/2004+.

Danny Phantom

Danny received his ghostly powers when he stepped inside a "strange machine" (the Fenton Ghost Portal) created by his father, Jack Fenton that was designed to view alternate universes. Danny accidentally turned on the portal while inside and his molecules fused with ghostly ectoplasms. Now, Danny has the ability to disappear at will, walk through walls and fly. When he transforms, Danny's normal teenage cloths change into a skin-tight black and white superhero costume while his dark hair turns white and his eyes glow green.

When not fighting ghosts, Danny hangs out at Casper High School where he is a freshman. His best friends are his extremely talkative friend, Tucker Foley who covers for Danny when he leaves school to battle ghosts ("What ever he's doing, I'm sure it has nothing to do with ghosts"); and Samantha "Sam" Manson Danny's smart "Goth" friend (she's a girl but not his girlfriend) who shares an interest in the paranormal, and chooses to be a vegetarian.

Danny's nemesis at Casper High is Dash Baxter, a bully and the most popular guy on campus who always gives Danny a hard time. But now that Danny has new found powers, he can hold his own against Dash's taunts.

At home, Danny has to contend with his ghost hunter parents, Jack and Maddie (who are oblivious to the fact that Danny is half-ghost); and his older snobby sister, Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton who keeps Danny's super abilities secret mostly because she doesn't want her "cool " friends at school to learn about her brother's geeky powers. And because she hates her parents profession and does ever thing she can to stop them in the pursuit of the paranormal.

Other women in Danny's are Paulina, the most popular girl in school whom Danny likes (she doesn't like him because he's not popular - Oh if she only knew the real Danny); and Valerie Grey, a fellow high school student who secretly battles ghost in her spare times.

Theme Song Lyrics

He's a phantom
Danny Phantom, (echo) Danny Phantom, Phantom

Yo Danny Fenton he was just 14,
When his parents built a very strange machine,
It was designed to view a world unseen

He's gonna catch em all 'cuz he's Danny Phantom

When it didn't quite work his folks they just quit,
But then Danny took a look inside of it,
There was a great big flash everything just changed,
His molecules got all rearranged

Phantom, Phantom

When he first woke up he realized,
He had snowy white hair and glowy green eyes,
He could walk through walls, disappear, and fly,
He was much more unique than the other guy

And it was then that he knew what he had to do,
He had to stop all the ghosts that were comin' through
He's here to fight for me and you

He's gonna catch 'em all
'cuz he's Danny Phantom
Gonna catch 'em all
'cuz he's Danny Phantom
Gonna catch 'em all
'cuz he's (whisper) Danny Phantom
