Naylor is best known as co-founding Spümcø alongside John Kricfalusi, Bob Camp, and Jim Smith as well as co-developing The Ren and Stimpy Show for Nickelodeon.


Naylor co-founded Spumco[1] and was involved in the development of Ren and Stimpy. Ren and Stimpy was criticized for violence with adult, bathroom, dark, and sexual humor that TV scarcely uses, it was also praised by some critics and audiences and inspired more innovative satirical cartoons such as Beavis and Butthead, Rocko's Modern Life, South Park, Family Guy, and SpongeBob SquarePants. She also produced and directed the film Hercules and Xena - The Animated Movie: The Battle for Mount Olympus, storyboarded episodes for The Powerpuff Girls, and co-created The Modifyers pilot with Chris Reccardi to Nickelodeon in 2007 but was rejected by both Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network.
