Greeny Phatom (pronounced Greeny Phantom) is an American animated crossover television series created by Robert W. Stainton. It first premiered on Fox and other channels on August 13, 1995, and eventually premiered on Cartoon Network Scratch on March 16, 2002. A spin-off series, Dr. Beanson, premiered on September 27, 1996. This show also came back on YouTube in March 6, 2009.
Stainton conceived Greeny Phatom in 1989 with his idea with two characters, Big Guy and Dr. Benson. They wore red instead of pink, and Dr. Benson had no mustache. In 1990, Dr. Benson changed his name to Dr. Beanson, and Big Guy to Little Guy. The show first appeared as a original unaired pilot and the comic in 1994. In 1995, 20th Century Fox Television and Sony Wonder adapted Greeny Phatom into a half-hour television series on Fox. The pilot episode was originally first aired on August 13, 1995.
The show's popularity resulted in a feature-length theatrical film produced, titled Greeny Phatom The Movie which was released on July 21, 2002, and its sequel titled Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 was released on August 13, 2013. It was followed by the series. In 2014, Greeny Phatom will celebrate its 20th Anniversary.
Greeny Phatom became a "meme" due to crazy popularity and being very happy of it, the series is also fanon since 2012 and it has over many movies.
In November 2013, he executive producer Michael announced departure in November 29th, 2014, due to working on Geo's Universe. The creator announced that Fox is no longer renewing Greeny Phatom for another season and that the last episode will air in Christmas Eve's Eve.
The show was first conceived by then an animator at CalArts in the office of Terry Ward in 1989. The idea hit him after he came up with two characters, Big Guy, and Dr. Benson. They did not exactly look like Little Guy or Dr. Beanson. They wore red instead of pink, and Dr. Benson had no mustache. But when the year 1990 came, Dr. Benson changed his name to Dr. Beanson, and Big Guy to Little Guy.
Now the creators had came up for a name of the show. Greeny Phatom. "It was a weird name," said Robert, also director of the series. A conception for the pilot had came.
Greeny Phatom first appeared on Febuary 13, 1994 as a original unaired pilot and the comic. It was then shown for The Tracey Ullman Show. It is the early version of "Pilot". In 1995, 20th Century Fox Television and Sony Wonder adapted Greeny Phatom into a half-hour television series on Fox. The series was originally set to premiere on April 24, 1995 with the pilot they showed to Fox earlier that year, The Original Un-aired Pilot, but the episode was declined to be used by Fox (until it was finally preserved on the season 1 DVD in 2002). The producers of the show then decided to "go ahead" and air another first episode, "Pilot" on August 13, 1995. The entire franchise was aquired by Fox in 1996.
After many years of production between Sesame Workshop, GreenyWorld Studios, CINAR/Cookie Jar, Film Roman and Aniplex (Games Animation Inc was also in production but was closed in 1998), they were replaced by DHX Media, 9 Story Entertainment and Bluth Entertainment (Aniplex and Film Roman were the left out studios of the original team) for a year before Film Roman folded to Romite Burbank and Aniplex to Romite Tokyo, when the creators of Greeny Phatom along with Michael Wildshill founded Romite Animation Studios in 2013 to continue the development of Greeny Phatom.
From 1999 to 2005, the show, along with Stainton's Jeb City aired on Saban's Fox Kids network due to high demand. From 2002-2005, after 4Kids Entertainment took control of Fox Kids and renamed it the FoxBox, the shows were aired there.
Cartoon Network on Scratch acquired the series on March 16, 2002, after 20th Century Fox was chosen to be the distribution rights holder of the series. Terry and Robert denied the acquistion from Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Pictures, when "mentioned that Warner Bros. Entertainment will be holding distribution rights of the television series and replace Sony Pictures". When Sony Wonder announced giving up on worldwide syndication rights on 2000s, Robert and Terry finally accepted the acquistion but Cartoon Network Studios was supposed to be the main production company. The rights were sold back to Fox in 2010. (Despite this, the show still aired on CN.)
The acquistion ended in 2010, the year Season 15 started and Greeny Phatom creators Terry and Robert planned to form a production company with their friend and the current executive producer Michael. The company was supposed to be named Bonfire Studios but Terry suggested the name Romite forming out of their names. However, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros and Fox had a big fight of disribution rights take-over & Fox later gave up when it was acquired by 21st Century Fox, Sony gave up because of Sony Wonder (and closing of it) and Paramount gave up when failed acquiring back it's distribution arm. Warner Bros won the distribution rights fight, but only distributes the Cartoon Network runs, according to Robert and Terry. The series was in schedule from 9 am to 10/9c in Fox, but after Fox gave up, the series moved to Cartoon Network and aired in 8 am to 9/8c. In 2006, Greeny Phatom premiered on Nickelodeon. Since Nick's arch-rival Cartoon Network aired it, Greeny Phatom would air on Nickelodeon after an episode of neither iCarly, or SpongeBob SquarePants.
Romite was formed and then the rights of the franchise were acquired, now Romite and Warner Bros are the production companies of the show. The show previously aired in Toon TV, Fox, Zits channels, Fuji TV and CBS. It was also aired on PenguinTV(When it was KidZone), and still continues to run on there to this day.

The film was directed by series creator, Robert W. Stainton.

SMB Madman has stated that he is developing an "alternate-universe take" on the series, titled The Greeny Phatom Show. This was originally called a revamp by Fox and Sony Wonder, but this version was scrapped, plus, that confused people into thinking that it would totally replace the old Greeny Phatom. More info is on The Greeny Phatom Show page.

After SMB Madman's take on Greeny Phatom, Guy12122/dingybird2012 decided to make another take. This would also have other personalities for the Characters. According to the Infobox of the page itself, It said that many other people are developing it, when dingybird himself is. He will also copyright Fox and Sony Wonder, not like SMB Madman.

- Santed Sailor runs a place called Beach Park.
- When the characters were first created, their shirts were different, since Robert made them that way.
- As of 2012, the show was never made to make fun of YouTube trolls on the Internet.
- Romite bought the rights to Greeny Phatom series in 2013.
- From 1997 to the early 2000s, Greeny Phatom was rated TV-Y. But after that, Greeny Phatom became a TV-Y7(-FV) show. In 1997, the Y rating was officially shown, due to apparent rating splat errors.
- The O Entertainment logo from 2002 was incorrectly plastered on The Trumpet of Duty, Little Guy Goes To ChickFilA and Gookie Gone Bad when they were aired on PenguinTV and Cartoon Network.
