The Ren & Stimpy ShowEdit
Waller produced and directed shorts for Fred Seibert's Oh Yeah! Cartoons. He co-created What is Funny? with Bill Burnett, as well as Pete Patrick: Private Investigator and Let's Talk Turkey. He also adapted the Harvey Kurtzman comic Hey Look! into a pilot episode for the series.
SpongeBob SquarePants and other workEdit
Waller was a writer for animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants during the last half of the series' first season, leaving after the first season was completed. Waller returned to the series as technical director for the series' fourth season, and supervised the first season of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. He worked on The Oblongs as a director, and later as re-take director. He was also a writer and storyboard artist on The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Evil Con Carne. Towards the end of the fourth season, Waller was promoted to creative director of SpongeBob, replacing Derek Drymon. In 2015, Waller was promoted to supervising producer along with Marc Ceccarelli, succeeding Paul Tibbitt. The creative director position was then eliminated. Waller stated that the position was made unnecessary due to the series now having two showrunners.
He was also a sheet timing director for the unaired Nickelodeon pilot The Modifyers.
Waller served as the creative supervisor for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.
