"Livin' Large" is the 7th episode in the third season of Danny Phantom.

Plot

The Guys in White buy out the Fenton Works, allowing the Fenton family to live a life of wealth and luxury. However, Sam and Tucker must now convince a now-snobbish Danny to stop the Guys in White from destroying the Ghost Zone (And the entire Earth!).

Why It's Spoiled

Only Mr. Krabs would go this far.
  1. The entire Fenton family has been badly flanderized in this episode. Their motivation is now being rich, when that was never the case in the past.
  2. Danny has gone from a beloved superhero into a greedy selfish jerk. He simply refuses to take any advice from his friends and live the rest of his life slouching, such as:
    • Replacing his friends with robot doppelgängers.
    • Making Sam and Tucker do his dirty work as he wants to leave his superhero work behind. He tasks them with stuff that he states: "important things that an old guy can do for him".
    • He even still misses being rich at the end of the episode.
    • The possible reason for Danny acting like a jerk after turning rich is because Butch Hartman hates rich people.
  3. Danny, once again, forgets to turn invisible when he approaches the heavily guarded Fenton Works, thus, getting shot down.
  4. Vlad only appears in the episode for a few seconds. He has no impact in the plot. You'd think he would have a bigger role in this episode since the Fenton Family moved next to him, but he is completely sidetracked.
  5. Sam and Tucker make unfunny jokes at the Guys in White when they are captured.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Danny at least learns the error of his ways.
    1. Also, he was right when the Guys in White couldn't figure out the password, as they didn't figure it out until after Tucker told them.
  2. While Danny forgot to turn invisible one would think back to "Double Cross My Heart", that the Guys in White were able to see Danny while being invisible.

Trivia

  • Danny riding Johnny 13's motorcycle could be a homage to Ghost Rider. It also could be a reference to Danny's original character concept, where he was supposed to be riding a motorcycle with gadgets built into it.
  • Butch Hartman's signature can be seen on the one hundred dollar bill on the title card.
