  Not Seeing is Believing!
     Danny Phantom: The Complete Series
                Available on DVD January 28, 2014 from Shout! Factory

"Find out how an average kid became part ghost-and all ghost hunter! With the extraordinary ability to turn himself into a super-heroic apparition, Danny Fenton must track down and defeat ghastly ghouls, while keeping his identity a secret!

All three seasons of Danny Phantom will be available in one gleefully ghoulish package when Shout! Factory releases Danny Phantom: The Complete Series on DVD January 28th, 2014. Get ready to take a trip to the other side with this 10-DVD set featuring all 53 original episodes of the hit Nickelodeon series.

And you thought the hassles of everyday high school life were bad! Meet Danny Fenton, a good-natured, ordinary 14-year-old kid with extraordinary powers. After an accident involving ‘Ghost Zone’ portal of his two highly eccentric ghost-hunting parents, Danny now has the half-ectoplasmic DNA of a ghost, giving him the ability to fight off the horrible spooks, specters and vengeful ghost hunters threatening our world! But before Danny can defeat anything, he must first learn to control his newfound powers with the help of his best friends, tech-head Tucker and self-proclaimed goth Sam.

Danny Phantom features an all-star voice cast, including David Kaufman (The Buzz on Maggie), Grey DiLisle (Rugrats, The Fairly Odd Parents), Rickey D’Shon Collins (Recess), Colleen O'Shaughnessey (Naruto), Rob Paulsen (Pinky and the Brain), Kath Soucie (Dexter’s Laboratory, Ben 10) and Martin Mull, Frank Welker (Transformers)."


My Thoughts:

My husband was a huge fan of Danny Phantom, when it used to air on Nickelodeon.  I remember he used to ask me to record this show when he would work back in the day, so that he could watch it later.  I never could get why he and so many others loved this show.  Were you a fan of the show?

The story followed a ninth grader named Danny, who walked into a ghost portal at the wrong time and was turned into a ghost phantom.  On the few occasions I sat down to watch this show with my now husband, I found myself feeling bad for Danny as she was a shy kid and was being bullied in school.  It didn't help that his parents were weird.  There is so violence in this show, and I would not recommend it for the younger audience.  But, fans of shows like Spongebob Squarepants and The Fairly Odd Parents will find a similar feel when watching Danny Phantom.

My husband was excited when I surprised him with the complete series 10-DVD set for Christmas.  He always hoped this television show would wind up on DVD so that he could re-live this great show.  So, when he saw this was the complete series, all 53 action packed episodes, he was over the moon, and couldn't wait to watch each and every one. 

If you were a fan of Danny Phantom when it used to air on Nick, or know someone who was...this upcoming complete series DVD set would make for a great gift idea.
