Mr. Dooves Unveils A Cappella Cover Of The "Danny Phantom" Theme Song

In their latest addition to their "Saturday Morning A Capella" playlist, YouTube channel Triforcefilms has unveiled an a capella version of the "Danny Phantom" theme tune, which you can watch in the fantastic music video below!

In the video clip, Mr. Dooves records himself singing and humming different parts (which you can see individually), while the theme song's familiar opening titles play in the centre of the screen. It's another of those videos you can watch multiple times, yet continue to notice new things!:

Here's the original "Danny Phantom" theme song, performed by Deric Battiste and Guy Moon, in all its glory! Sing along with the lyrics below!:

"Danny Phantom" Theme Song Lyrics:

(He's a phantom)
(Danny Phantom, Danny Phantom, Danny Phantom)

Yo, Danny Fenton, he was just 14,
When his parents built a very strange machine.
It was designed to view, a world unseen.
(He's gonna catch em all 'cause he's Danny Phantom.)

When it didn't quite work, his folks, they just quit,
But then Danny took a look inside of it,
There was a great big flash, everything just changed,
His molecules got all rearranged!

(Phantom, Phantom)

When he first woke up, he realized,
He had snow white hair, and glowin' green eyes.
He could walk through walls, disappear, and fly,
He was much more unique than the other guys.
And it was then that he knew what he had to do,
He had to stop all the ghosts that were comin' through,
He's here to fight, for me and you! He's-

Gonna catch 'em all, 'cause he's Danny Phantom,
Gonna catch 'em all, 'cause he's Danny Phantom,
Gonna catch 'em all, 'cause he's (Danny Phantom.)

As a special bonus, below is a super video featuring a animatic of Butch Hartman's original opening title sequence for "Danny Phantom"! The main difference of the original "Danny Phantom" theme tune to the version used in the show is that the lyrics are almost entirely sung, as opposed to rapped in the final version:

Original "Danny Phantom" Theme Song Lyrics:

Danny Phantom Original Title Sequence - Animatic00:47
Danny Phantom Original Title Sequence - Animatic
(He's a Phantom)
(Danny Phantom Phantom Phantom)

A kid whose life is changed
Molecules rearranged
Ghosts are so deranged

He's gonna catch 'em all 'cuz he's Danny Phantom

Spirits don't stand a chance
Senses all enhanced
Power so advanced

He's gonna catch 'em all cuz he's Danny Phantom

Unleashing all of the freaks
Onto his hometown streets
Now every one he'll beat
Flying right through the wall
You can't see him at all
If they are big or small or tall

He's gonna catch 'em all cuz he's Danny Phantom
Gonna catch 'em all cuz he's Danny Phantom
Gonna catch 'em all cuz he's Danny Phantom
