Edit

Maxwell Atoms started production on Underfist a little bit after he finished with The Grim Adventures. The special was finished several months before it aired, but as it was a Halloween special it was delayed until October. Cartoon Network did not pay for a permanent crew for a single film, so much of the work was done freelance or by Atoms himself. The film also used a different overseas animation crew.

Underfist tied for first in ratings for the week it was aired and has been nominated for Best Animated Television Production Produced for Children in the 36th Annie Awards. Jacob Paschal of Toon Zone gave the film a negative review, saying "Overall, Underfist is your typical annual Halloween film fluff designed to fill the airwaves and get younger folk hyped on something other than candy. Maybe you'll find that enough".
