Development and casting

On November 17, 2014, it was announced that Geo LTD. Animation had acquired the rights to produce an animated film, via VerniX Animation Studios to make Z-Doodler's comic strip series Kid n Teenagers, which was first published on August 3, 2014 on DeviantArt, with the creator Z-Doodler writing the script for the screenplay and Taylor Grodin and Adam Katz, the creators of Inanimate Insanity, directing the film along with Michael Wildshill producing it.

In February 2015, it was confirmed that the film would be based on 3 Simple Doods, an alternate version of Kid n Teenagers. It was also announced that David X. Cohen, who previously worked on Futurama, is on board to co-produce the film with Wildshill, ZeroToons who is a user from Hentai Foundry and the creator of the "Family Guy Lois Griffin Dress Up" game, and Seth MacFarlane who is the creator of Family Guy, American Dad, and Ted.

On May 21, 2015, Adam Katz tweeted on his Twitter account that he would co-direct and co-produce the film, now titled 3 Simple Doods and 1 Simple Doodette, along with Seth MacFarlane. In August 2015, Josh Gad, Andy Samberg, Zac Efron, and Alex Borstein were cast as Ted, Chris, Aiden, and Sam, the main protagonists. In March 2016, Kristen Schaal, Elizabeth Banks, and Will Arnett joined the cast for the film.

The Adventures of Steel & Space and Cameron Murphy's Adventures in GoAnimate creator Cameron Murphy will also play a part in the film as the announcer/narrator.


The film was originally going to be rated PG-13, but ZeroToons and Z-Doodler felt that the film was actually made for adults that are 18 or older, so that means it's not going to be made for children whose ages are 17 and under due to most of the adult content such as sex & nudity, porn, violence, gore, blood, and even foul language.

So, Z-Doodler edited the film to make it a lot more adult-friendly, so that way, children under 17 cannot see it due to the adult content that is shown in that film, unless they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. The film's rating was later changed from PG-13 to R after the editing is completed.

The film's original version, which is the final cut, is rated R while the director's cut version is rated NC-17.
