Production history

Johnny Test was created and executive produced by Scott Fellows, the creator of the Nickelodeon live-action series Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, and a writer on The Fairly OddParents. The show premiered on September 17, 2005 on Kids' WB's Saturday morning lineup, alongside Loonatics Unleashed and Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island.

The series was developed from a straight-forward test pilot, produced in-house by Warner Bros. Animation, which was animated roughly in Adobe Flash, with the same plot, similar color schemes as the episode "Johnny to the Center of the Earth" with an American voice cast instead. Fellows, creator of the series, said he convinced the idea basing the titular character on himself when he was a young boy, with his sisters, Susan and Mary, being based on his own two sisters, also named Susan and Mary. Due to original producer Chris Savino's involvement with the first season, some ideas and premises were carried over from Dexter's Laboratory.

According to his official website, James Arnold Taylor said that he was not Fellows' original choice to play the Johnny Test character. He had previously voiced the lead character in the original test pilot and was initially going to replaced by a different voice actor, with a Canadian voice cast instead, just only after the show was given the greenlight by The WB. But of course, the studio had trouble finding Johnny's initial voice convincing for the first six episodes, so they gave Taylor back the role to redub his dialog for the rest of the first season, and managed to keep him on the cast for the rest of the series, but none of the original crew from the initial test pilot, and it's producer Aaron Simpson, remained on the show.

The remainder of the first season was produced in-house at Warner Bros. Animation (with Canadian animation studios Studio B Productions and Top Draw Animation outsourcing some of the show's service work), and some of the episodes were being storyboarded by Atomic Cartoons, and most of the voice recording taking place, in Canadamarker. However, the merger of UPN and The WB into The CW resulted in many budget cuts for the show, and resulted in hiatus. Cookie Jar Entertainment, based in Canada, decided to take control of the series' production. Due to this change, the writers, storyboarders, and art crew who worked on the first season were let go, resulting in an entirely new crew managing the show. In addition, the budget of the show dropped dramatically, leading seasons two and three of the show being animated in Adobe Flash by Collideascope Digital Productions.

The show's opening theme was later changed, with the opening being made of recycled episode footage. It is now regarded as part of Teletoon's original series catalogue. More recently, James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Johnny Test had announced that a fourth season is in production.[197274]. This new season is currently being animated in the Philippinesmarker, and will be presented in high-definition. It finally premiered on Teletoon on September 10, 2009 and Cartoon Network in the U.S. on November 9, 2009.

Plot Background

Johnny Test concerns the adventures of Johnny Test, an average 11-year-old boy, who lives with his intelligent twin sisters, Susan and Mary and his talking (and talkative) dog Dukey, in the town of Porkbelly. As a recurring gag, they use their young brother as their test subject for various experiments (thus their surname of Test), of which to impress Gil, their next-door neighbor. Sometimes, Johnny would also be given his sisters' gadgets, or superpowers to use in combat or other situations. At times Johnny will "borrow" some of the devices and special powers that the twin sisters had developed and invented to do their own dirty work, and then try to undo disasters and messes that they have created, as well as to fight evil villains found in Porkbelly.
