  • Trivia 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 Amity Park refers to the Amityville killings where ghosts reportedly 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.'

Samantha "Sam" Manson : [not realizing yet that Danny's under a love spell] Wait, I know that look. That's that same, longing, puppy-dog stare you give Paulina.

Danny Fenton : Who's Paulina?

Samantha "Sam" Manson : Well, that's a pleasant side effect.

Theme Song [ ]

The theme song is almost entirely in rap.

Chorus: He's a phantom! Danny Phantom! Danny Phantom! Danny Phantom! Deric Battiste: Young Danny Fenton, he was just 14, [1] When his parents built a very strange machine . It was designed to view, a world unseen . Chorus: He's gonna catch em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom! Deric Battiste: 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! Chorus: Phantom! Phantom! Deric Battiste: When he first woke up, he realized, He had snow white hair, and glowin' green eyes. He could walk through walls , disappear , and fly , He was much more unique than the other guys. 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! Chorus: He's gonna catch 'em all, 'cause he's Danny Phantom, Gonna catch 'em all, 'cause he's Danny Phantom, Gonna catch 'em all, 'cause he's Danny Phantom!

Another version of the theme song was recorded, but unused. It differs from the final theme song in that it is almost entirely sung (as opposed to be rapped) and that it was never fully animated.

It can still be heard in instrumental form as the show's end credits theme, and can be found in full on Butch Hartman's website and in animatic form on his YouTube channel.

Chorus: He's a phantom! Danny Phantom! Phantom! Phantom! Man: A kid whose life is changed Molecules rearranged , Ghosts are so deranged. Chorus: He's gonna catch 'em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom! Man: Spirits don't stand a chance, Senses all enhanced , Power so advanced. Chorus: He's gonna catch 'em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom! Man: Unleashing all of the freaks, Onto his hometown streets, Now every one he'll beat! Chorus: He's a phantom! Man: Flying right through the wall , You can't see him at all , If they are big or small or tall! Chorus: He's gonna catch 'em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom, Gonna catch 'em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom, Gonna catch 'em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom!

  • There are two versions of the animation used for the intro, one with Danny without his logo and one with him with it. The logo-less version was used until " Memory Blank ," as he did not have his logo until this episode. The logo version was used starting with " Doctor's Disorders ," the next episode.
  • In a video from July 2017 on Butch Hartman's YouTube channel, Butch Hartman and Guy Moon revealed that a third version of the theme song was made but never released. [2]  Further details on it have yet to be revealed as of December 2020.
  • Other localizations of the opening such as the German, Dutch, French, Danish, Norwegian and Hungarian versions use the lyric "Yo" instead of "Young".
  • Butch Hartman mentioned in a March 2006 interview that the theme song was heavily inspired by Queen's 1989 song " The Invisible Man ."
  • Parts of the animation from the original theme song can be seen in the first Danny Phantom commercial. [3]
  • Danny, Jack, Maddie and Dash appear in the intro. Interestingly, Danny's teammates Sam, Tucker and his sister Jazz, and Mr. Lancer, are absent from the intro.
