It was distributed by the MTV Networks and Viacom Media Networks. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic teenager named John McRocket. It is set in the fictional town Hillville, and is laden with adult humor, including double entendre, innuendo, and satirical social commentary.

World of John was conceived by Christian since 1977 shortly before a solicitation for a series of animated shorts with the producer Terry Ward. Christian created a world and named the characters, substituting John McRocket for his own name.

In 1988 World of John was befored owned by Disney and premiered for the Disney Channel but where droped and it was changed to Nickelodeon.

Development

In 1987 World of John was originaly owned by Disney and premiered for the Disney Channel but where droped and it was changed to ABC. ABC was initially nervous to air World of John; as there hasn't been a cartoon in primetime since World of Quest, 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. World of John was originally to premiere in the fall of 1987; with "TBA," but when the episode came back from animation in Korea, it had major, major problems with it. 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 "Good Evening John," on March 1, 1988. Through the entire show's history, Zatch Braff, Christian Nunez and Tom Kenny have served as the show's executive producers. Robert Stainton, the creator of Greeny Phatom, was also in this position, although was not credited. When Stainton left in 1999, 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 World of John were assembled by Robert Stainton. These were: John Musker, Joe Ranft, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, Phil Roman, Tim Hill, John France, Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Dan Povenmire. Newer World of John writing teams usually have 16 writers and episode ideas are thought of and proposed in early October. 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 2001, the head of these groups was Jeff Pidgeon, who apparently wrote lots of the best lines from episodes. But the idea of all this came from the magic hand of Christian Nunez who invented the pictures.
