Elmer Earl "Butch" Hartman IV (born January 10, 1965) is an American animator, writer, executive producer, animation director, storyboard artist, voice actor, occasional singer, and producer.
He is the creator of the Nickelodeon animated series The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, T.U.F.F. Puppy and Bunsen Is a Beast. He, thusly, created the The Fairly OddParents shorts that originally aired as part of Oh Yeah! Cartoons.
On The Fairly OddParents, he voiced recurring character Dr. Rip Studwell, and also Dr. Bender and Wendell Bender, after Gilbert Gottfried was unable to reprise the latter two roles. In the first live-action movie based on the series A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!, he played the waiter at the restaurant Timmy Turner and Tootie had their date. On T.U.F.F. Puppy, he voiced Agent Rodentski and Agent Weaselman in "Share-A-Lair".
After 20 years, Butch Hartman left Nickelodeon on February 2, 2018 after publicly announcing his departure on February 8, 2018 on YouTube. Despite this, Bunsen Is a Beast was his last Nicktoon created for Nickelodeon in 2017.
