Poop City was an Cancalled animated television series that was, created and produced at MTV, Adult Swim, and Pooper by animator Garfield The Cat. It first premiered on MTV on 9/11, with it's first episode, Gree Guy's Suicide, which led to no of half-hour episodes. The series aired on MTV and its affiliates worldwide, except in everywhele where it has aired on English and France PBC networks due to Poopy television ownership regulations with a total of 0 seasons.
The haters of this show say it is a rip-off of both Geo's World and Greeny Phatom. Some of the haters are Greeny Phatom fans. (We all hate this!)
Poop City was conceived in the lobby of Terry Ward's office by Garfield the cat. He was asked to do a series of animated shorts, and decided to do his Poopy Comic series; but since he realized that animating Gree 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 riped off Geo Guy for his own name; as it was an anagram of 'poop'.
Poop City first appeared to the world on september 11, 666 by Universal Poop Company. Poop submitted drawn sketches of Poop Guy and his friends to the animators, assuming they would clean them up in production. However, the animators just became stupid; that is why Poop City appear a little poorly drawn in the comics. 666h Century Shit then picked up the rights, and in 9/11, a team of production companies adapted Poop City into a 10 minute episode, for the Pee. It was initially nervous to air Poop City; as there hasn't been a cartoon in primetime since Geo's World and that they were unsure if they could keep the audience's attention for the duration of the episode. They proposed doing three 1-minute shorts and four specials until the audience hated, but the producers barfed for 1 half-hour episode for the series. Poop City was originally to premiere in the fall of 1987; with "Gree Guy KILLZ Geo's World," but when the episode came back from animation, it had real major, major problems with it. Terry Ward was extremely angry that he cussed 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 Suicide" on September 11, 2001." The show then famed during the only episode, but was canceled after 1 episode, due to higher ratings from Geo's World and Greeny Phatom, and reviews saying "It is good to see Gree die.."
In 2009, Shitty Entertainment acquired syndication rights for the show.
In 2012, Greg Garfield found the lost Gree City tapes, but former mock reviewers of Hire Productions announced that in 2013, NBC will pick up the rights of the show.
In 2013, a proposal to make another Gree City spinoff failed, and the show is dead forever. The tapes were then confiscated in the Gree City Studios.
In 2014, the tapes was actually bought back, and staff used them to make a new Gree City show called G.L.O.W.L. (Gree Laughs Out Way Loud), which lasted 1 season. The tapes are then buried in the Gree City studios AGAIN.
In Feburary 5, 2015, the tapes were bought back AGAIN, and then another Gree City show was revealed to be in production. It was canceled after 15 episodes, then the tapes were hidden in the GreenyWorld Studios storage cupboard, thus making the show unrecoverable. Then, Greg's computer was reformatted into Windows 8, thus making new episodes impossible to make. Then, Greg Garfield commented on the hard-to-use interface of Windows 8, then decided he should cancel Gree City for sure, and work for Greeny Phatom. Greg Garfield currently works as a storyboard artist on Greeny Phatom.
Currently, Gree City has reruns on The Greeny Channel in April 25, 2015, but was then returned for 15 more episodes until it was axed by Viacom and Netflix.

The show actually received great reviews during the 1985 TV season, then the 1st negative reviews started to appear during the 1996 TV season. The show has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 47% (rotten), and an IDMB rating of 4.7. The 1995 TV season got the show's Nielsen ratings to drop, then in 1996, dropped even more, causing the 5th season to have a Nielsen rating of 12. Gree City The Movie was a flop, earning only of it's planned money. IGN rated both the show and movie a 39.2 out of 100, saying that "It was starting to be a ripoff of the top 2 Greenytoons, Geo's World and Greeny Phatom." The A.V Club gave the show overall an D, stating that "after taking elements from Geo's World and Greeny Phatom, Gree City is not a good show to watch since the 1996 season." Gree City The Movie fared worse, with a grade of "F-".
Gree City is criticized for ripping off the more successful Geo's World and Greeny Phatom, being drawn in not so good quality, and stealing more ratings from Geo's World. Gree City also tried to cancel Geo's World ten times in a row.
