The series was created by Bob Boyle II, an animator and storyboard artist previously working on Nickelodeon projects such as The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom. Steve Marmel, a stand-up comedian and also writer for Fairly OddParents, who known Boyle for years, was offered a long-term contract from Disney/Jetix to participate on the project. Marmel drew influence from anime shows such as Gainax-produced FLCL (フリクリ, Furi Kuri?), putting American anime-influenced animated shows like Teen Titans and Samurai Jack in the mix, using it as driving force to deliver comedy. Although a show directed at general audiences, especially children, with its mildly risqué innuendos it also targets adults as well.
"'They asked if I wanted to work on Bob’s show because it was their first comedy. It was just a match. I’m working with a friend and I’m working with a genre that I love, anime. I don’t think anybody’s ever done a flat-out tweak on it for comedy purposes. There have been some tongue-in-cheek moments, but nobody’s ever said ‘We’re going to play with this and make it our own,” you know? Do to anime what Seinfeld did to comedy. " — Steve Marmel
There are two animation production teams simultaneously working on Yin Yang Yo!. While one is George Elliot Animation, situated in Canada, the other one comprises a small group of Flash animators located as Disney campus of Burbank, in California, United States. An extra hand of animators crawls from Frederator Studios, producer of many Cartoon Network titles.
Many episodes of Yin Yang Yo! were directed by Ted Collyer (also director of Clone High) and John Fountain (as an animator, participated on Fairly OddParents, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut) while the main established writing force was Steve Marmel (also executive producer) with the help of Aydrea ten Bosch (ChalkZone), Eric Trueheart (Invader Zim), Sib Ventress (Donny Phantom). Chris Romano and Eric Falconer, responsible for Spike's Blue Mountain State and production of How I Met Your Mother and The Sarah Silverman Program also participated on the writing of various episodes. Staff writers Evan Gore & Heather Lombard who penned Futurama 's episode "Fear of a Bot Planet" (1ACV05), lately dedicated their work for Lilo & Stitch: The Series, participated in the creative process of Yin Yang Yo! as well.

Famous quotes containing the word production:
“An art whose limits depend on a moving image, mass audience, and industrial production is bound to differ from an art whose limits depend on language, a limited audience, and individual creation. In short, the filmed novel, in spite of certain resemblances, will inevitably become a different artistic entity from the novel on which it is based.”
—George Bluestone, U.S. educator, critic. The Limits of the Novel and the Limits of the Film, Novels Into Film, Johns Hopkins Press (1957)
“Every production of an artist should be the expression of an adventure of his soul.”
—W. Somerset Maugham (18741965)
“... this dream that men shall cease to waste strength in competition and shall come to pool their powers of production is coming to pass all over the earth.”
—Jane Addams (18601935)
