The show was first concieved by Finley Small in the office of Terry Ward in 2009. The idea hit him after he came up with two characters, Finley and Fraser. They didn't look exactly like how they look today. But when the year 2010 came, a few changes were made to both characters. Soon after, Finley Small had come up with more characters, including Amanda and Satin Guy. Now the creators had came up for a name of the show. Finley's World "It was a wierd name," said Finley, also director of the series.
When Finley presented the show to Warner Bros. in early 2011, they were afraid that it would do horribly like their show for the former Kids' WB block on their former channel, The WB called Gree TV (a Geo TV rip-off). As a result, the pilot had to be redone. A conception for the pilot had came. Then, Finley's World first aired on Cartoon Network with the first episode "Reading Windows Errors" on August 23, 2011.
Through the entire show's history, Robert Stainton, Finley Small, and Terry Ward have served as the show's executive producers. Geo G. was also in this position, although was not credited. When Geo left in 2016, he arranged a deal to be credited as executive producer as well as get profits even though he no longer works on the show. Later that year, Strong and Wildshill are co-executive producers of the show.
The first team of writers for Finley's World were assembled by Geo G. These were: Robert Stainton, Lucas Hurford, J.G. Quintel and Michael Wildshill. Newer Finley's World writing teams usually have about 15 writers and episode ideas are thought of and proposed in early August. The main writer writes the first draft and the group changes it, adding in jokes and removing parts they don't like. This can sometimes change a script entirely. Up until 2014. the head of these groups was Kent Osborne, who apparently wrote lots of the best lines from episodes. But the idea of all this came from the magic hand of Finley Small who invented the pictures.
