…“Man wouldn’t it be funny if Danny Phantom did the dab every time he made an appearance?”
“Dude I wish!”
Out of the shadows a figure emerged. Smiling cruelly, she waved her green hand and in a flurry of smoke repeats her catchphrase.
“So you have wished it, so shall it be…”
He was on his way to school taking the aerial rout, when Desire decided to block his path. She looked like the cat that ate the canary. Raising her hand she blew a big puff of smoke in his face before he could even ask her what she was doing. She laughs evilly and flies away.
Nothing happened. Ok. Whatever. He’s already running late. Phasing into the empty bathroom he transforms. A strange tingle runs up his spine. He pauses. Ok. That was weird. He joins his friends in the halls.
“Hey Danny, you ok?”
“Yeah dude, did your dad want to test another invention on you?”
“No, it’s Desire. I think she did something to me but I’m not sure what.”
The two fully human friends look at each other. Then back at him. The bell rang and they made their way to class. Twenty minutes into the lesson and Lancer starts calling on students.
“Mr. Fenton, please answer the problem on the board”
Danny sighs resignedly. He gets up and goes to the board. Oh. He actually studied this one. Yeah he’s got this. He picks up the chalk and solves the problem. He knows he’s got the right answer because Lancer makes a small sound of approval.
He finishes the problem with a flourish, turns on his heal swiftly, and “mic drops” the chalk. All the while Lancer waits patiently. It’s not every day his most enigmatic and problematic student knows the material. He’ll let him have this little moment of victory.
He finishes his little spectacle by positioning himself for the greatest dab to end all dabs. He dabs. Instant regret. He can feel his ice core stir. The transformation began. A flash of white light. The whole class gasps. Lancer stumbles back. The white rings travel up and down his body. He can’t stop it! Blue jeans and white tee shirt are replaced by black and white jumpsuit.
Danny Phantom, frozen in his dabbing position, slowly looks up and blinks. Eyes as big as satellite dishes. He can see his friends are floored. The class is stunned. The only thing heard in the classroom is the bee trying to get out through the window. It feels like eons have passed. Then, a single cry shatters the silence
“LORD OF THE FLIES!”
Everything comes crashing back to life. The students are in an uproar. Poor Danny is frozen in place. He pales further. His mind has shutdown. Stuck in the dabbing position, he can only stare at the chaos. Tucker finds his voice again.
“Well, at least now we know what Desire did to him”
From then on, thanks to a certain redhead basketball player Danny Phantom became known as Dabby Fentum
Not what I thought my first post would be about, but I’ve actually noticed like…4 distinct art styles used in Danny Phantom.
I call them the Baby Danny
aka, the style with the biggest irises and noodliest arms. So noodle that sad Dabby sometimes loses his shoulders altogether from droop. Used most often in the earliest episodes.
The Cutsie Danny:
also big eyed and noodly, but the face and hair are very distinct and more rounded, while the eyes are usually more of an oval shape. Very animated, very flexible, and very expressive. Has the largest shaded portion of hair out of all the styles, plus very big, wide smiles. The back of the head is v smol. Used randomly throughout season 1 and some of season 2, sometimes swapping in the middle of an episode.
probably used in the most episodes and with the most frequency (far as i can tell). The side of his face angles out less, and his arms and legs are a little thicker. Fluffiest hair. Outlines are pretty much a consistent thickness all the way around. Kinda stiff, but usually on-model.
Phantom Planet Danny:
exclusive to season three. Eyes too smol. Body too thicc. Too much space between the side of his face and his eyes. Did his cheekbone mutate and start pushing the sides of his face out? Generally bad. Never shoulderless, droopy Dabby. Makes mama sad.
…How? How is it that he can defeat the Ghost King but can’t even tell the Goth chick how he feels? He’s getting sick of the little punk’s denial. It’s obvious that they like each other. It’s obvious to humans and ghosts. He reaches a decision.
He’s gonna have to play Cupid, Jonny 13 style.
Riding down the streets of Amity Park is the infamous ghost bicker Jonny 13, and Shadow, faithfully following. He’s come to spy on the little punk. See what’s up with him and the Goth- hey there girl you looking fine- no, no. He’s on a mission. He can flirt after.
He rides past the park and spots his target. There they are, all three of them. They look like they’re just chillin. Jonny slams on the breaks and kills the engine. He knows he can’t get too close without alerting the kid’s Ghost Sense. That’s it! He can use this to his advantage.
“C'mon Sam, the only reason you think that is cuz he wears black.”
“So? You like Spider-Man for his nerdy background”
“But we can all agree that Super Man is the greatest right?”
“Shut up Danny”
“Aww c'mon guys-gasp”
Damn, the kids got a wide range. He can see him tense his muscles. His friends getting into defensive stances seconds after the gasp. Well whatever, gonna have to play this by ear. He makes his way over to them. Putting on an impassive expression.
“Relax punk, I’m not here to cause trouble, yet.”
“Jonny? What, have another fight with Kitty?”
“Something like that. Just wanted to get away, ride around a while. Ya know, see the sights”
“And by sights you mean anything with a skirt on?”
Damn, that Goth chick’s got a sharp tongue. How does this kid deal with the constant sass. Whatever, to each his own he guesses…Anything with a skirt huh? He could work with this. He smirks.
“Well girlie, you’ve got a skirt on”
She makes a face. A cross between walking in wet socks and sucking on a lemon. The techie friend just looks horrified. He would have laughed but He’s gotta observe the punk’s reaction. And boy what a reaction it was. The kid looks about ready to tear him to pieces. Fists clenched, muscles taught, eyes glowing green. He shifts in front of the Goth chick.
“Watch it Jonny”
“Why? You dating her?”
“So you’re not her boyfriend”
“So she’s single”
“So you have no say in who wants a piece”
With each fact his confidence shrinks more and more. Shadow is just cackling behind me. The Goth chick looks caught between wanting to tell us off and waiting for the punk’s answers. The Techie friend looks like he’s caught on to whats going down. We make eye contact. He nods slightly. This is perfect.
“Yes I do-”
“Why? do you like her?”
They both freeze at that. Gotcha. He starts to sweat. Goth chick can’t see his face but the both of them look like cherry tomatoes. Maybe he’ll admit it if I’m more forceful? He snaps out of it and starts sputtering excuses.
“W-what!? No, I mean yes, I mean…”
Goth chick looks like a mess. Her eyes betray her bored expression. He can tell she’s holding her breath. Techie is watching like a hawk. This kid is crashing and burning fast.
He stops the word vomit and looks at me. He just stares. Like he’s in a far away place. After a few seconds he looks like she’s come to a decision. He squared his shoulders, puffed out his chest, and stared daggers.
“Yes I do. So back off.”
The surprise is tangible. Didn’t think he would admit it just like that. Techie is silently celebrating. Goth chick though, she looks like she’s about to explode. Face red and caught between laughing and crying. I guess my work here is done.
“Alright whatever man. See you around then.”
He turns to leave the same way he came. She asks if he meant what he said. As he makes his way to his bike he smirks. He’ll have to check in later to see how it went. Now though, he’s gonna go check out those sights, maybe flirt a bit with the locals, try a Nasty Burger.
Sitting on his bike watching the setting sun he wonders if his plan worked. Hopefully. When the entire ghost zone has a betting pool as to when the two of them are going to get together, you know it’s serious. It’s honestly ridiculous how perfect for each other they are. Maybe he will go check in on them. However as he makes to turn on the bike he sees something that just makes howl with laughter.
There, walking hand in hand is Goth chick and ghost punk. He smirks. They just made him the richest man in the Ghost Zone. What a lucky break.

idk how or why we all started referring Danny as “danno” but i like it
i’m not sure how to describe it, it’s like we’ve reached the level of affection for this character in which we give him this fun shitposty nickname to show that we love him. i dont think any other character has this sort of nickname. it’s like when people were calling him “dabby” but this only has a one-letter difference to his original name
for example, “what a good danno” or “oh it’s the danno!!!” you see what i mean
edit: if his dad referred to him by this nickname in canon like people are saying so, please tell me which episode that’s in. this is so important to me
ok but why aren’t we all watching Netflix’s Disjointed? its fucking great?? its funny and creative, and the animation bits are awesome and omg did i mention it deals with ptsd? and its just? really good??
