Geo TV is an American animated sitcom created by Geo G. for the American Broadcasting Company. The show originally aired on Fox until it was brought by ABC in June 2000. It first premiered on December 20, 1998 with the episode "The Geo Life", which led to a series of half-hour episodes. It is based on Geo G's comic series Geo Comic. Like The Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy and Futurama, Geo TV was designed for mature audiences and features cartoon violence, adult humor, running gags and pop culture references.

Geo had began working on Geo TV in 1991, teaming up with Terry Ward. To voice the character of Geo Guy, Geo approached himself. As the title of the show was changed from Geo Guy, Rico & Eis to Geo TV, the show first appeared on the demo that Geo pitched to Fox on November 2, 1997. That year, Geo submitted an email to the producers at his company, Glass Ball Productions that they were working on a full version of the cartoon, and that they were trying to find a company to produce it.

The series was originally set to premiere in June of 1998 with the pilot they showed to Fox earlier that year, Pilot Pitch, but the episode was declined to be used by Fox (until it was finally preserved on the season 1 DVD in 2003). The producers of the show then decided to "go ahead" and air another first episode, "The Geo Life" on December 20, 1998.

Geo TV is a joint production by Glass Ball Productions and 20th Century Fox Television and syndicated by 20th Television.

As of May 2016, Geo TV was renewed for a nineteenth season.

DevelopmentEdit

The development of Geo TV began in 1991. This time, Geo G., teaming up with Terry Ward, decided to make a show based on his comic series Geo Comic, thus developing a Geo Universal animated sitcom that describes as "a show with the same mature nature as The Simpsons." To voice the character of Geo Guy, Geo approached himself. In 1994, Geo TV was first announced under the title of Geo Guy, Rico & Eis, and said name was used for the series of What a Cartoon! shorts.

Geo TV first appeared on the demo that Geo pitched to Fox on November 2, 1997. That year, Geo submitted an email to the producers at his company, Glass Ball Productions that they were working on a full version of the cartoon, and that they were trying to find a company to produce it.

The series was originally set to premiere in June of 1998 with the pilot they showed to Fox earlier that year, Pilot Pitch, but the episode was declined to be used by Fox (until it was finally preserved on the season 1 DVD in 2003). The producers of the show then decided to "go ahead" and air another first episode, "The Geo Life" on December 20, 1998.

In May 2000, Geo TV was initially cancelled by Fox due to poor ratings, but was bought out by ABC in June. However, Geo TV still airs on Fox in other countries such as the United Kingdom.

In 2001, Cartoon Network acquired exclusive cable syndication rights to Geo TV for a reported ten million dollars. In September 2001, the network began airing Geo TV episodes as the centerpiece to the expansion of their Adult Swim cartoon block.

The show's theme song is based off on the SNES game Super Mario Kart, in which Geo G. gave credit to Nintendo. Eventually, the theme song is credited as "Super Mario Kart Music."
