Derreck's World (also known as Derek's World in some countries) is an American animated stick figure television series created by Damen Walker and Wilton Lawrence for Dot Comedy. Produced by DJW Studios and Rubix Television, the series revolves around the everyday adventures of Derreck Stickazoom, an eight-year old stickboy who dreams of making the world an "actual living fantasy" by making crazy gadgets and embarking on unlikely adventures such as saving the world and discovering something that isn't real. The series is based on a short film called Bet You Can't Do This! which was released on March 15, 1996, and later November 21, 2001 with Going Francisco.
The series debuted on August 13, 2004. It is both the studio and network's longest running show. The first four seasons of the series were executive produced by Colin Conklin before he retired from the Rubix company in 2007 and became Vice President of Geo LTD. Animation, and starting with the fifth season, Samuel Merritt took over as the producer of the series and other media from DJW Studios.
In 2002, while watching Toy Story during the production of Tony Tom-Tom's Delivery Service, Damen Walker enjoyed looking at the interior of Sid's house (especially because of its staircase and the window above it). He became inspired to create a house with a structure resembling that of Sid's, and later realized that the house could be his chance was to create a "bigger world" around his character Derreck Stickazoom from Bet You Can't Do This!.
When creating his own version of the house, Walker used different wallpaper designs for each room he saw in Toy Story and gave the window above the stairs some detail such as the curtains. When the house was finished, he had to decide which room Derreck should sleep in. He chose Sid's bedroom, and used Hannah's for a sibling that Derreck may have.
Damen Walker began working with Wilton Lawrence, who co-directed Going Francisco, on the first episode of their show Derreck's World, called Derreck Runs on Walls. The show premiered on Dot Comedy on August 13, 2004 and received positive reviews from critics.
