The production of the show is which Seth MacFarlene does not use his Family Guy art style but uses a slightly different art style similar to the Jetsons parody on Family Guy. Craig Bartlett does the designs for the characters and Mike Milo does the script righting and directings. The show was animated in similar style to Hey Arnold!, Recess, The Weekenders and other child-oriented cartoons.
The voice actors consist mostly on child/teen actors and adult voice actors.
The directors and musicians had to use different tunes of music per kid since they come from different cultures such as Indian music for the Indian-ethnic character Swaroop and Asian music for the Japanese girl Miko.
The show is often refered to fans as a combination of Blake Holsey High, Tower Prep, Hey Arnold! and Scooby Doo with a dash of The Amazing World of Gumball.
