The writing team behind PuffRuff School – consisting of TjsWorld2011, Ntpockets, and Pyro R. – was initially reluctant about offers by 20th Century Fox for a film adaptation of the television series, but eventually agreed to the project in December 1999, with production beginning in February 2000. Tj wrote the film's story by himself, and wrote the screenplay with Nt and Pyro. During pre-production, Tj rejected three different rough drafts of the screenplay, seeking to keep the plot less "epic" and more "down-to-earth". Although the film was completed in January 2001, problems experienced during its post-production stage led to Fox delaying its original April 2001 release date by four months.

PuffRuff School: The Movie premiered at the Mann Village Theatre in Los Angeles on July 24, 2001, and was released in the United States on August 17, 2001.
