* OneOfUs: A ''very'' major geek when it comes to other franchises outside his own, be they from other cartoons, video games, and even anime. His Twitter account is shockfull of examples of everything he likes drawn in his ''Fairly Oddparents'' style.

* EndOfAnAge: His departure from Nickelodeon after working there for over 20 years marks the end of his overall style and influence on the channel, [[FranchiseKiller effectively killing off]] ''Fairly [=OddParents=]'' and ''Bunsen is a Beast'' in the process as well as ending any chances of the long-discussed ''Danny Phantom'' revival.

It also came at roughly the same time Creator/DanSchneider, which signaled a similar end for Nick's kidcoms.


* BetterThanABareBulb: The humor in his cartoons is extremely self-aware, with characters frequently acknowledging the absurdity of the situation they're in.

* AuthorAppeal: Absolutely loves superheroes and the comic books they came from, which is visible with how many references he makes to them in his cartoons.


Hartman moved on to Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} as soon as his contract with HB expired to work on [[DuelingShows a slightly similar show]], ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons''. There, he created several shorts that would eventually become ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', one of the station's longest running shows (the ''Oh Yeah!'' shorts were retroactively named "Season Zero"). In fact, something else Hartman and [=MacFarlane=] have in common: their animated shows are the only ones to ever get Uncanceled ''twice''. Hartman has since produced three more shows for the station, ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', ''WesternAnimation/TuffPuppy'' and ''WesternAnimation/BunsenIsABeast'', making him second to Creator/KlaskyCsupo as Nick's most prolific creator. In 2018, he parted ways with the company after twenty years of employment, assuring fans that he was still hard at work on new shows, including ''Elf Detective'' for his Website/YouTube channel. He would also make a return to Creator/CartoonNetwork for the action comedy ''Dynamice!''.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: His upcoming cartoon that he is doing for his own network, ''Elf Detective'', is a much more serious, anime-inspired cartoon.

** It's a bit worse when you take into account that it came after fellow Nickelodeon mainstay Dan Schneider left as well, who was around slightly longer than he was, but was just as influential on the live action side of things. It's an end of an era for more than just one part of Nick.


* JustForFun/OneOfUs: Very often, just navigating his Twitter account tells you he is a fan of so many things that he enjoys drawing said things in his style; from video games, comic books, to anime.

Added DiffLines:

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Creative differences in ''Danny Phantom'' caused him and longtime companion, Steve Marmel, to stop working together.


* ThatCameOutWrong: His crowdfunded app, Oaxis Entertainment, was the subject of a minor scandal when fans and non-fans alike latched onto some tactless comments he made giving a speech about it. In addition to the typical MoralGuardian jargon of too much violence in the media resulting in real-world violence, depression and suicide, and how such things "didn't exist" when he was younger, some unfortunate wording and body language made it sound like he was blamed Creator/TaraStrong for Creator/MaryKayBergman's suicide in 2000.
