The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the nominees this month for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards — the awards that recognize achievement in all fields of daytime television production, from daytime dramas to talk shows and animation. Included on the list of nominees is CalArts alumnus Butch Hartman (Film/Video BFA ’87), creator and executive producer of Nickelodeon’s “The Fairly OddParents,” which was nominated for Outstanding Children’s Animated Program.
The series, which is the third-longest-running Nicktoon behind “SpongeBob SquarePants,” created by fellow CalArtian Stephen Hillenburg (Film/Video MFA ’92), and “Rugrats,” revolves around Timmy Turner, a boy who is granted two fairy godparents named Cosmo and Wanda. Above is a clip from Finding Emo, Season 9′s 13th episode.
Prior to joining Nickelodeon in 1998, Hartman worked with Marvel Productions, Ruby Spears Productions, Disney and Hanna-Barbera. He has also created two additional hit shows for Nickelodeon: Danny Phantom and T.U.F.F. Puppy.
Hartman gave a presentation to students in the Experimental and Character Animation programs in late April at CalArts.
