Created by Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose, the show began as a series of shorts on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series, KaBlam! Decode Entertainment and C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures developed Angela Anaconda into a long-form series in 1999.
The show features cutout animation, in which characters are created using black-and-white photographs. The production studio, C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures, used Elastic Reality software to superimpose models' faces onto computer-generated bodies and backgrounds.
The show aired on Fox Family Channel, Nickelodeon and Starz Kids and Family in the United States. Teletoon aired it in Canada. Internationally, the series was broadcast on Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network where available and Channel 4 in the United Kingdom.
Although the series has not had a full DVD release, the first twenty episodes were distributed across four volumes in Australia, where the program is broadcast on Nickelodeon Australia.
In France, an Angela Anaconda channel is available on Pluto TV.
Angela Anaconda received high ratings and mixed reviews from critics. Barb Stuewe of The Ledger noted that while "the humor doesn't always come off," the show "is sometimes quite funny." Evan Levine of the Rome News-Tribune was critical of the show's look and feel, stating that "the series' unique, cut-out style of animation seems trendy for its own sake." Scott Moore of The Washington Post called Angela Anaconda "more imaginative than anything ever seen in art class." Co-creator Sue Rose noted in an interview with The New York Times that despite having a primarily female cast, the show had become popular with both sexes. She writes, "the most frequent feedback we get is from parents of boys ... they say: 'My boys watch it and they love it. I never thought they would.' These are not just girls' shows, they're kids shows."
The Sydney Morning Herald gave it the award for best children's show of 2001, call it a "cute and sassy animation".
During the series' time on Fox Family, it received consistently high ratings and was commonly marathoned by the channel.
