Among the shows Germain has written, produced or directed are Rugrats, The Simpsons, Recess, Even Stevens, Lloyd in Space, The Tracey Ullman Show, and Beethoven: The Animated Series. Germain (along with Arlene Klasky and Gábor Csupó) was one of the creators of the award-winning animated series for Nickelodeon Rugrats and was a primary creative force for the series. With his Rugrats colleague Joe Ansolabehere, he is the creator of Recess and Lloyd in Space.
Paul was born in Los Angeles, California. The school in Recess shares the name of Third Street School, an actual elementary school that his children attended.
His grandfather Simon Lazarus produced the blacklisted 1954 film "Salt of the Earth" with Herbert J. Biberman and Paul Jarrico, and was involved in the production of the 1971 anti-war "Johnny Got His Gun" written and directed by Dalton Trumbo.
Paul's younger brother is Marc "Mr K" Germain, a popular talk-show host formerly known as Mr. KABC and before that as "Mr. KFI".
He has recently been credited as screenwriter on Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue and voice director on Pound Puppies. Germain is currently working on live-action projects. As of March 2016, he serves as a producer consultant for Smosh's web series, Part Timers.
