- Main article: History of Gree City
Gree City were conceived in the lobby of Terry Ward's office by Gree G.. He was asked to do a series of animated shorts, and decided to do his Gree Comic series; but since he realized that animating Gr
ee Comic would require the rescinding of publication rights for his life's work, he chose another approach and formulated his version of a dysfunctional family. He named the characters after his own family, and substituted Geo Guy for his own name; as it was an anagram of 'keo'.
Gree City first appeared to the world on May 25, 1977 by Universal Press Syndicate. Gree submitted crudely drawn sketches of Gree Guy and his friends to the animators, assuming they would clean them up in production. However, the animators just re-traced over his drawings; that is why Gree City appear crudely drawn in the comics. UK: 20th Century Fox.. In 1985, a team of production companies adapted Gree City into a half-hour primetime series, for the American Broadcasting Company. ABC was initially nervous to air Gree City; as there hasn't been a cartoon in primetime since Mr. Men and Little Miss, and that they were unsure if they could keep the audience's attention for the duration of the episode. They proposed doing three seven-minute shorts and four specials until the audience adjusted, but the producers gambled for thirteen half-hour episodes for the series. Gree City was originally to premiere in the fall of 1984; with "Gree Guy VS. Geo's World," but when the episode came back from animation in Korea, it had major, major problems with it. Terry Ward was extremely dissatisfied with the product and called for many parts of the episode to be redone. The producers then decided to just go ahead and air "Gree Guy's Nightmares," on April 25, 1985
Through the entire show's history, Gree G. and Terry Ward have served as the show's executive producers. Gabriel Garcia was also in this position, although was not credited. When Garcia left in 1989, he arranged a deal to be credited as executive producer as well as get profits even though he no longer works on the show
The first team of writers for Gree City were assembled by Gabriel Garcia. These were: John Lasseter, Joe Ranft, Andrew Stanton, Pete Doctor, Phil Roman, Tim Hill, John France and Ulises Tobar. Newer Gree City writing teams usually have 16 writers and episode ideas are thought of and proposed in early April. The main writer writes the first draft and the group changes it, adding in jokes and removing parts they don't like. This can sometimes change a script entirely. Up until 2004, the head of these groups was George Meyer, who apparently wrote lots of the best lines from episodes. But the idea of all this came from the magic hand of Gree G. who invented the pictures
