Best Animation Studiosjezza0
The Top TenXW
Pixar, Aardman, Dreamworks and Disney great, but pixar are the best. They broke lots of records and have great movies like Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo and Brave.
Pixar is amazing, mostly because unlike other animation studios, they take their audiences seriously, most animation studios just make dumb, goofy kids films, with 1 exception, dream works because they had Kung Fu Panda 2 and How to train your dragon 2, which also appealed to older kids and adults, but Pixar always does these kind of films, it's so easy for studios to just make silly kids movies, but Pixar always puts effort into their movies to make them enjoyable for everyone, and almost all their movies have a ton of moments that just pull at your heart strings, they are so good at making an entertaining story that kids can enjoy and leveling it out with dramatic moments, and I'll just say it, Inside Out is my favorite movie they've made, it's hilarious and really really touching, I almost cried a quite a bit of times in that movie, I hope Pixar keeps their films like this, because Pixar doesn't make kids films, they make good films that are kid-friendly.
This should be at the very top. 11 of Pixar's 12 movies are in the list of the top 50 highest grossing animations of all time. Pixar is definitely #1 on this list, so...
Wall.E and Inside Out are enough to secure Pixar's place in number 1. - alimarashianV56 Comments
Disney was the first ever animation company it was walt Disney who first began this new era of animation I remember as a child I always thought Disney was the only animation company even when it had pixar at the start, why? I have no idea maybe it is because every kid dreams of Disneyland and that it is a magical place. Now that I am older I still cling onto the belief that Disney truly is the most magnificent animation company everyone knows them and what they make and of course every little girl dreams of being a Disney princess
Created some of the best films out there, with outstanding plot and breathtaking animation. I'm sure films like "The Lion King" and "The Little Mermaid" is the classics loved and remembered by everyone, not to talk about the vary first movies with sound or color were made by Disney.
In my opinion, this should be number one. I mean, who's ever had a childhood without Disney? Besides, this studio started it all. The first animation studio with a full-length colored animated movie with sound. Without Disney, no other animation studio would have existed.

Dreamworks is an amazing animation company, and I'm really happy that it's better than Disney. I'm not saying Disney is rubbish, but half of the disney films like High School Musical and Teen Beach Movie are dumb. Whereas Dreamworks hasnt got a single movie that should deserve to be hated. And Dreamworks have amazing storylines, especially with How To Train Your Dragon, Shrek, Megamind, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda. Dreamworks put effort and care into their movies, and unlike Disney who SOMETIMES create bad movies (e. G High School Musical) just to make themselves look like they have more animations, Dreamworks don't have more films than Disney, but the quality and effort put into the films is better. I just want more people to notice this. And another thing I love about Dreamworks is how each film is different. Most Disney films are about "true love" but Dreamworks have differnt, unique storylines. Also, most Dreamworks sequels are better than the first and have exciting twists and ...more
Movies like High School Musical is made by the Disney Channel Original Movies, not Disney animation studios. You shouldn't judge all the moves made by the Disney Company as a whole, but rather the Animated feature films made by Disney animation studios. Your point is irrelevant.
This one should be in #2 because its almost as good as pixar and it's better than everyone else
This has created such masterpieces as the Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda franchises as well as Megamind, How to Train Your Dragon, Monsters Vs Aliens and Shark Tale. - jezza0

I was torn between this and Pixar, but what convinced me to choose this one is that Pixar did have a few films I didn't like that much (Cars, mediocre, Brave, boring, Cars 2, terrible, Finding Nemo, not bad but way overrated), where Studio Ghibli on the other hand every film I've seen from them I loved. Their films range from relaxing and fun, deep and meaningful, creative and charming, and even dark and sad. My favorite film by them is probably Spirited away (which is overall my 3rd favorite animated film, under The Lion King and Wall-e, but both of them had more flaws than Spirited away). The only film I've seen by them that I didn't give a 10/10 to (in my head) was Ponyo, and I only did so because it was a tad weaker than their other films, but it is still very good, good enough for a 9/10. I've just discovered them a week at the time of this writing (I mean I knew about them but I haven't seen any of their movies until then) so maybe I'll get bored of them, but at the moment they ...more
Studio Ghibli has multidimensional characters and beautiful animation that is detailed to the drop- literally! The stories are layered with fantasy, romance, drama, and everything else. The most amazing part is that Studio Ghibli continues to use traditional animation, and every frame is hand drawn- that takes skill, talent, and determination.
Hayao Miyazaki and his team have continually produced the most AMAZING artworks and film animation I have seen. Their films such as Laputa Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro continues to inspire people of all ages.

They are #3. They are the best after Pixar and Dreamworks.
This is the #2 best animation studio after Disney, Whoever works for this masterpiece of a studio is a genius in several ways possible, Their films are SO original! Ice Age was so original in 2002, Robots is ALSO original, Considering Robots was made BEFORE WALL-E! It's also a shame Video Brinquedo had to ruin it with their lack of originality. Horton Hears a Who CGI film was also original, along with the super original Rio, Good luck with Epic, Blue Sky! I hope it's as good as your other films, All and all, Blue Sky is WAY better than Dreamworks and Pixar combined (my opinion) I hope anyone else agress with me!
This is an awesome studio, I really really like the movies and the art. Though I do wish Dreamworks was on here.
They made epicV5 Comments
This is the home of many beloved sitcoms such as The Simpsons, King of the Hill, Futurama, American Dad, Family Guy and it's spinoff The Cleveland Show. It's also home to the Ice Age movies, Rio and The Simpsons Movie. - jezza0
The Simpsons have been on the air for like 24 years and counting. That alone makes Fox worthy of #1 and I haven't even mentioned Futurama and Family Guy.
Fox has such iconic sitcom families like the Simpsons, the Flanders, the Wiggums, the Griffins and the Hills among others. - jezza0
Rio and Ice Age Fox? Nope. That's below. - EvantV2 Comments
I know this studio has to pay their dues like Pixar and DreamWorks have, and those studios deserve their perches. But I can see Illumination pouncing on them from behind, especially if they continue to make characters and stories as colorful and creative as The Lorax and Despicable Me. One of their greatest strengths is making characters that appeal to everyone. The character of Gru is truly lovable and relatable to all ages, and the Lorax himself was really a tribute to the work of Seuss. I love the work this studio has done and am so looking forward to their future ventures. Currently I feel they're severely underrated.
They would make more movies. Like these characters; Lorax, Cat in the Hat, Gru, The Minions (Dave, Stuart, Kevin, Tim, Jerry, Carl etc. ) Hop Bunnies...
Don't Hate Them Because Of The Minions Movie

When it comes to quality stop motion animation, Aardman is superior to the style. In fact Aardman is probably the greatest animation studio regardless. - Truckasaurus
Nobody does stop motion quite like Aardman. - jezza0
Wallace and Gromit, shaun the sheep, chicken run. The films produced by this company are amazing it should be top!
Best stop motion.V2 Comments
They gave us Rocko, SpongeBob, Invader Zim AND Avatar. How could you NOT love at least one of those four shows? - xandermartin98
This studio deserves higher because of SpongeBob. Band Geeks, Chocolate With Nuts, Pizza Delivery, The Camping Episode, Frankendoodle, Graveyard Shift such as the classics!
If it weren't for SpongeBob they would be in a sea of red ink
The New TMNT Is the reason why we love nickV2 Comments
The have make masterpieces like The Iron Giant, Batman The Mask of the Phantom, Osmosis Jones, Cats don't Dance and Quest for Camelot. Its kinda sad that almost everyone have forgotten this awesome movies that easily compete with another films of Disney or Fox in terms of quality and originality.
This is the studio I grew up with
They made the Lego movie, what else not to like?
Independently produced Nutjob animated feature film. Katherine Heigl, Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Liam Neeson and other stars did the voice acting. The film grossed $64.3 million in North America and a worldwide total of $120.9 million. in 2015-2016 Nutjob 2 is in production slated for a 2017 release.
The studio is in Toronto Canada and has affiliated studios in Korea and China.
This is the home of Flintstones, Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, Yogi Bear, Top Cat, Huckleberry Hound, Tom & Jerry and Wacky Races. - jezza0
The animation is so slick it's rivaled only by one guy. The legendary Tex Avery
They have more iconic characters than any other animation studios. About 8 of their cartoon characters would make the top twenty list; Scooby-Doo, Fred Flintstone, Tom & Jerry, Yogi Bear, any of the Smurfs, George Jetson, and many others. I think this should be #2; right behind Disney.
P.S. I never really liked Disney anyways.
They suck, I can animate better than them and I'm not even good at itV3 Comments
I like Universal everything, it should of at least made it in the top ten. This is ridiculous!
They did classics like Land Before Time, American Tail, and Balto - Mcgillacuddy
Parasyte -the maxim-, No Game No Life, Death Note, what else can I say?
Beatiful Animation. Just think of Hunter x Hunter, Death Note oder at least One Punch Man!V2 Comments
, great films!, my brother loves you guys!
Looney Tunes is made by Warner Brothers.
This movie has every right to be in the Top 10. Sure it may not be the best animation studio, but this studio has been able to make perfection time and time again and they are the best of the best without question.
Doesn't make a lot of films, but Coraline and ParaNorman are two of my favorite films ever!
They made some of the best animated movies you can watch. Coraline, Paranorman, and Kubo and the Two Strings - McgillacuddyV2 Comments
An open animation company making quality animations serves a better quality to world
