Episode Summary

Danny Fenton is losing his mind! At least, that's what Jazz decides when her little brother starts acting strangely and fighting ghosts that aren't there. In reality, Danny is being tormented by a revenge-seeking Youngblood, who cannot be seen by adults -- or by big sisters who think they're adults. When Jazz sells the family on a ghost-tech-free camping trip, Youngblood follows and unleashes a series of juvenile attacks that make Danny seem even crazier, and put the Fenton family in danger.moreless

  • Your never too old to have fun!

    This episode was so hilarious. The fact that only Danny could see Youngblood because he was a kid was a bit odd, because Tucker acts less mature than Danny a lot of the times.

    Danny tricking Jazz into being a brat brought tears to my eyes. It's nice to see how well siblings get along.

    The ending was a laugh riot. Danny's practical joke on Jazz with Tucker's i pod noise excuse maker was may be not an original, but made an excellent running gag. It would definitely make an excellent prank on my youngest sister.

    Definitely must rewatch this one soon.moreless
  • This was funny! Yay, crazy Danny!

    My favorite thing about this episode was the fact that everyone thought Danny was going crazy when he saw ghosts that weren't there. The ghost that he saw was Youngblood, who was playing a trick on him. At the beginning, Danny is fighting a ghost that no one else sees. So, Jazz thinks it's just something that happened because he was half-ghost, but she starts to think Danny really is going crazy. He destroys things because he sees Youngblood messing with him. Jazz suggests that the family go away for a while so Danny can try to relax. Even on vacation, he's still going nuts. Finally, Jazz puts him on lockdown so he doesn't destroy anything else. But Danny has a plan. He does anything he can to bring out the inner child in Jazz, who thinks she's an adult. When it finally works, she sees Youngblood and helps Danny defeat him. Now, everyone knows that Danny hasn't gone crazy and everything is as normal as it can get.moreless

  • Man... Danny goes crazy and Youngblood returns

    I never knew when this episode came out at first,but when I finally watch it I thought what the hell is this?!

    Why did they bring Youngblood back?He was boring to begin with I hope they bring back Ember...

    Anyway Jazz narrates? They also go on a camping trip? Hmmm... anyone wonder why Jazz has a stuffed bear and still say she's an adult?

    Okay the bottom line is Youngblood comes back,Danny goes crazy, Jazz steals the spotlight, and Jack finally waers something other than his normal jumpsuit,but over all the episode was fine I still don't understand still what day did the Butch hatman aired this episode?moreless
  • This episode was awesome and focused on Danny and Jazz. Two thumbs up!

    I thought this episode was fantastic because it had a lot to do with Danny and his sister. The character depth and fighting is much more interesting than just one or the other. And I've always wondered what kinds of things she wrote in her Diary... Plus I liked the line that went "Nothing like spending quality time with the people you love," - "And by 'quality time', you mean hunting down ghosts in a subaquatic death-trap?" And I'm glad the episode ended with Danny flying, I like when that happens... I can see why Jazz is so proud of Danny for everything (I am, too!) It was very entertaining! Yet another awesome episode!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In the opener, Jack and Maddie were listening to loud music until Jazz let them know that Danny Phantom was outside the Fenton RV, then Danny is seen hurtling towards them head first. However, when he see this happen again, there was no loud music and Danny was hurtling towards them foot first.

  • NOTES (47)


    • Tucker: Wait, there's more! Now how much would you pay?

      This alludes to the famous sayings of infomercial salesman, Ed Valenti.

    • Tucker Foley Alibi O-Matic: Appearance
      The device that Tucker invents, the "Tucker Foley Alibi O-Matic," looks very similiar to an iPod.

    • Bearbert Einstein: Name & Appearance
      Jazz's stuffed teddy bear's name was "Bearbert Einstein," obviously a parody of Albert Einstein, who is widely regarded to as the greatest scientist in the 20th century. Albert Einstein was a German-born physicist who is best known for his theory of relativity. Bearbert's appearance also resembled that of Albert Einstein. More Info

    • Episode Title: The Fenton Menace
      The title is likely a parody of the title of the movie, Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
