Y-Guy® is an American animated television series, created by IAmBagel and Invader Rob. The series follows the adventures of Y-Guy and his group of friends having adventures in the surrealistic city of Crazville, U.W. The series popularity promoted the release of a media franchise. A feature film based off the series titled Y-Guy: The Movie was released in theaters on June 10, 2005, and two sequels were released in 2007 and 2013.
The series focuses on the misadventures of Y-Guy, Mango, Hearty, Gum and Cool Dude, who live in the crazy surrealistic city of Crazville. While attempting to deal with the problems every kid faces (School, homework, responsibility, etc.), they also have to deal with pathetic and devious villains, as, unfortunately, Crazville is a hot spot for amateur villains, which includes Professor Carrotstein, their arch-nemesis.
Y-Guy: The main protagonist and title character of the show. He often acts friendly and is very brave and caring, but despite this, he is very reckless, destructive and very mischievous. He is voiced by IAmBagel , the creator of the show.
Mango: Y-Guy's best friend since early childhood. He often acts as the voice of reason towards Y-Guy's reckless and self-serving behavior. At times, Mango can be a little selfish and greedy. Other times, he is very irritable and curious, and is very loyal to his friends. He is voiced by Sean Marquette
Hearty: A heart who Y-Guy kinda has a crush on. She is the smartest of the group and is also very tough and serious. However, she is very anti-social and is implied to have a dark past. She is voiced by E.G. Daily
Gum: A piece of gum who can stretch at long distances and morph into different shapes. He is often considered the scaredy-cat of the group, often overreacting and worrying. Despite his cowardice, he is very knowledgeable in many talents and is often considered to be the friendliest of the main five. He and Cool Dude have a small rivalry between them, as they are always bickering over petty things. He is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker
Cool Dude: One of the most popular kids in school, who thinks he is popular because of his personality, but in reality, he is only popular because if his foolish attempts to gain attention. Despite acting self-centered, he is very supportive of his friends and often encourages them. He is voiced by Neil Patrick Harris
Professor Carrotstein: The main antagonist of the series. Professor Carrotstein is a living carrot (formerly a human), seeking revenge against the world for insulting and outcasting him from society simply because of his new form.

Senorita Fanservice: The gang's Spanish teacher. She is often the source of the adult humor the show gets away with, often flirting with certain teachers.
Y-Guy's popularity started to increase during 2002, so IAmBagel and Invader Rob decided that they should make a feature film based on the series, titled "Y-Guy: The Movie" which was released on June 10, 2005. The film centers around Crazville being suddenly taken over by a mysterious villain, which prompts Y-Guy and the gang to form an unlikely alliance with Professor Carrotstein in an attempt to save their town. The film was a box office success and was also received positive reviews from fans and critics.
Due to the film's popularity, the crew immediately began work on "Y-Guy 2: Space War" ,which was released on November 16, 2007. The film centers around Y-Guy and the gang being transported to an alien planet in an attempt to help the planet win an intergalactic war. The film was positively received and was a success at the box office, though not to the extent of it's predecessor.
In Early 2011, it was announced that a new Y-Guy film was going to be released in late 2012, but was pushed to Summer 2013. The film, titled "Y-Guy: Back in Time", follows Y-Guy and the gang, as they are sent into the past due to a freak accident. While in the past, they meet their ancestors. They soon discover weird portals appearing in town, and when Mango enters one, he discovers that the portals lead to the year 2050, where Carrotstein is ruler of the universe, and they learn that he plans to enslave everybody from the past. So now Y-Guy and the gang must team up with their ancestors to save the past. It was released on June 7, 2013, and has received positive reviews.
Y-Guy was supposed to be colored white, not green. It was said that it was a printer typo. But since everyone liked that color for Y-Guy after they saw it, they decided to make green the color for Y-Guy
In character development, Professor Zing-Whatt was supposed to be Professor Carrotstein's wife. But the crew didn't like the idea, so they scrapped the idea, but they later decided to have the both of them dating in high school and eventually breaking up due to Carrotstein turning evil.
Doug.scheer, a Director and Asst. Producer, was fired from Nickelodeon Studios in 2012 after allegedly stealing animated materials from competing animated cartoons. An appeal by Nickelodeon Studio in 2014 asked if he would like another chance to work correctly with the crew, but he declined the offer.
The large popularity of this show actually inspired many shows and companies.
The series is also famous for starting writer and animator Sr.Wario's career.
In several foreign language dubs of the show, Y-Guy is often renamed to Y-Boy or Y-Kid.
