The series was pitched to Jetix4kids in 2005 company had greenlit the series for production in 2006 after the pilot was completed for Jetix4kids. The series was originally supposed to air in 2005 on Nickelodeon but the show was held back until 2 years later due to behind-the-scenes issues with jetix4kids as well as delays. Episodes are produced at Jim Henson and Klasky Csupo and distributed by Nelvana in North America. Saban handles distribution in other territories.

The show is rated TV-Y for appropriate for children

The show is set in the fictional town of Toonville and parodies American culture and society. Much like Teen Titans Go, Spongebob Squarepants, The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Pokemon, and Doug The Wacky World of Fred was designed for major audiences, (some memes and stock footage are censored, featuring comical and humor, on Jetix4kids, and DVD prints), running gags, and pop culture references.

Plot

the wacky World of FЯED is an animated comedy that follows the adventures of five friends who reside in the town of Toonville (a city populated by famous cartoon characters) and own a large clubhouse for cartoon characters. Episodes usually feature the central team of FЯED Figglehorn, Bart Simpson, Frankie Foster and Ami Onuki, Stan Marsh though occasional storylines center on the other main characters, However, their lives are half of the times interrupted by Bendy, Terrence, Chloe, Plankton, The Problem Solverz, and the Abandoned Cartoons so FЯED must occasionally team up with the imaginary friends to break the villains' plans.

At the end of most episodes, there are PSAs, which are named " FЯED Tips". These are meant to be parodies, and take heavy inspiration from the "Sonic Says" segments of AOSTH fame.

It is implied that Fred has been the victim of child abuse (for example being locked in a dog cage for three days), however he frequently speaks of his love for his mother, particularly after her stay at rehab. Fred's father is mentioned several times as being a former rock musician, and currently on death row in the state penitentiary.

The companies Fun 4 All, Mezco Toyz, and Mirage have produced various TWWOF action figures, collectibles, and plush dolls. In 2009, the first series of toy figurines was released by Mezco Toyz; each character had their own toy, with the exception of Stan, of whom two different figures were made. Over the course of two years, four more series of toy figures were released, with various forms of FRED.

Jazwares has produced an assortment of 2-, 6-, 7-, and 10-inch licensed action figures and plush toys for the series. "Collectable Figures" have also been released along with other themed merchandise, such as "80's Bobbleheads" "Pullback Custom Cruisers" and "Wrestling Buddies". There have been many graphic T-shirts officially licensed through clothing retailers Hot Topic, We Love Fine, and Threadless.

In October 2010, Jetix4kids announced a line of toys based on the wacky world of Fred, which would be sold by specialty retailers. For the 2015 holiday season, Funko made "Pop!" vinyl figures and Just Toys offered "blind bag" novelty products. PhatMojo sold plush figures and foam weapons, and Zag Toys released collectible bobbleheads and other mini-figures in early 2016. The following year, Toy Factory planned to sell a line of plush and novelty items. Jetix4kids sells a variety of products, including mugs, blankets and clothing, based on the show's episodes and characters
