Gree City - Gree Guy's Nightmares

A video of the first episode of Gree City.

History

Gree City were conceived in the lobby of Terry Ward's office by Greg 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 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 substituted Geo Guy for his own name; as it was an anagram of 'keo'.

Gree City first appeared to the world on May 2, 1977 by Universal Press Syndicate. Gree submitted 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 a little poorly drawn in the comics. 20th Century Fox then picked up the rights, and in 1982, a team of production companies adapted Gree City into a 1-hour primetime series, for the PBS. It was initially nervous to air Gree 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 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 1983; with "Gree Guy VS. Geo's World," but when the episode came back from animation, it had real 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 May 1, 1984. The show then flopped during the 1990-1991 TV season, then was canceled several years later in 2008, due to higher ratings from Geo's World and Greeny Phatom, and reviews saying "It was starting being a ripoff of Greeny Phatom, and Geo's World.

In 2009, Apple Entertainment acquired syndication rights for the show.

Short returns

In 2012, Greg Garfield found the lost Gree City tapes, But, Former Mock Reviewers of Hire Productions announced that in 2013, that 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 Gree LOL, 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, Gree G.'s computer was reformatted into Windows 8, thus making new episodes impossible to make. Then, Gree G. commented on the hard-to-use interface of Windows 8, then decided he should cancel Gree City for sure, and work for Greeny Phatom. Gree G. currently works as a storyboard artist on Greeny Phatom.

Currently, Gree City has reruns on The Greeny Channel.

in April 25 2015, Gree City returned for 15 more episodes. Until It Was Axed By Viacom And Netflix
