Elmer Earl "Butch" Hartman IV (born January 10, 1965) is an American animator, executive producer, animation director, storyboard artist, producer, and creator of the hit animated series, The Fairly OddParents, as well as Danny Phantom and TUFF Puppy.

He is currently working on the new Nickelodeon series Bunsen Is A Beast. He was also a part-time actor in the 1980s. He also voices various characters, such as the father of Trixie Tang, the school bus driver, Dr. Rip Studwell, and the farmer on TV.

Butch Hartman has been writing, directing, and story boarding episodes since the "Oh Yeah! Cartoons" animated shorts. All of his three shows employ the same style that involves thick outlines and thin in lines as well as the "flat-chinned children" and "Hartman Hips" drawing systems. This style was inspired by that of the Hanna-Barbera Animation Company which he worked for.

Appearances

Butch appeared as a waiter in "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!", and as one of the carolers in "A Fairly Odd Christmas". He also had an animated cameo appearance in "Abra-Catastrophe!" and "Marked Man". Butch also appeared as one of Vicky's headgags in the Season 7 episode "One Man Banned/Frenemy Mine".
