Worst Animation Studios


The Top Ten

1 Video Brinquedo

They need to be at The top - VideoGamefan5

They rip off major films to make a quick buck, with very low budget - Phillip873

They ripoff several Disney and Dreamworks films. Their worst film has got to be either Ratatoing or The Little Panda Fighter - Cartoonfan202

They plagiarize, huh? How lovely. - DCfnaf

2 Splash Entertainment

They made Norm of the North. Enough said. - SplashMoun10

They are known for making awful content - Cartoonfan202

Norm of the North is absolutely horrendous. - DCfnaf

Not only Norm of the North, but the newest Alpha & Omega sequels which both AniMat and Bobsheaux reviewed the same way I would. - The Ultimate Daredevil to SplashMoun10

3 Spark Plug Entertainment

I hope Pixar buys Spark Plug Enternainment, even though the modern Spark Plug Entertainment movies are actually Fantasia compared to the earlier ones! - The Ultimate Daredevil, thinking out something very devious and brand-new

Another studio that makes direct-to-video knockoff films, such as A Car's Life. - SplashMoun10

Also plagiarists. - DCfnaf

4 Sony Sony

I only like Surf's Up, Hotel Transylvania, Pirates Band of Misfits, and Arthur Christmas - Cartoonfan202

Sony is absolutely horrible and they put pretty much no passion into anything they make. The Emoji Movie will definitely suck, and they're also behind Angry Birds and The Amazing Spider Man. - DCfnaf

Hotel Transylvania 1&2 were fine I haven't seen surfs up so I have no opinion yet and I like cloudy and a chance of meatballs 1&2

They canceled Popeye the Sailor Man to make The Emoji Movie.

5 Threshold Entertainment

Foodfight! Enough said. - DCfnaf

The studio that made Foodfight! - SplashMoun10

6 Unearthed Films

The studio that made Where the Dead Go to Die. - SplashMoun10

Where the Dead Go to Die. - DCfnaf

The guy behind the filth is Jimmy ScreamerClauz - Sibel

Jimmy ScreamerClauz is the scum of the Earth. - Cartoonfan202

7 Mondo TV

The studio that produced The Legend of the Titanic and Tentacolino. - SplashMoun10

HTF enough said

8 Blue Sky Studios

Ice Age Sucks Now - VideoGamefan5

Ice Age, enough said. - DCfnaf

The only film I like from them is their peanuts movie

They literally spammed Ice Age to the point where there are NO ways to move the plot forward. The last movie was literally just the 1st movie except everyone's married now. Just watch Blue Sky, though. They're probably gonna recycle the plot of the 3rd movie for a "new" movie this 2017.

9 Illumination

When I review Despicable M3, I will be sure to rant about this pathetic excuse for an animation studio. They are unoriginal and lazy and only care about making money. Despicable Me is the only good movie they have. Everything else ranges from mediocre to horrendous. Despicable Me 2 was awful, Hop was offensive trash, the 2016 movies they made were mediocre, and Minions is one of the absolute worst movies I have ever seen in my entire life. - DCfnaf

Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks beat them supremely. Despicable Me is their only good series. - DCfnaf

They've made a few decent films, but they're still pretty bleh in comparison to other major studios like Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks. I'm also getting really sick of them shoving the Minions down my throat. - SplashMoun10

The only think I liked from this studio was despicable me, they have made NOTHING I liked since, and a couple I hated. They also gave birth to the minions, which turned from cute little comic reliefs to annoying tic tacs - Phillip873

10 Titanic Cartoons SRL Roma

The studio that produced Titanic: The Legend Goes On. - SplashMoun10

Rapping dog!

The Contenders

11 Disney Disney The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

I love Disney no way are you going to bash about then they work so hard at everything they do I love them they are my favorite - Ilovedolphins4b

As much as I love Disney, I can't help but sometimes think that their movies are only made to sell toys. Just look at Frozen - Cartoonfan202

What? These are the massive animation giants of the universe. Well...in the 90s (most overrated decade) they were. - DCfnaf

While Disney has had a fair share of bad and good, a lot of their recent stuff isn't as good as the last.
(Oh, and by the way, TLK hater, find something better to do with your time.) - Swellow

12 ToonBox Entertainment

The studio that produced The Nut Job and its upcoming sequel. - SplashMoun10

Lest we forget the fact that they made Spark: A Space Tail. :( - The Ultimate Daredevil, who is surprised that AniMat did not review Spark which might as well disappoint him

13 Dreamworks Animation Dreamworks Animation

I kind of agree with Saberspark that they've been going downhill lately. Don't get me wrong, they've made great movies like Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, etc., but I feel like they don't stand out as much as Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios do these days. Like Saberspark said, they tend to come out with average or below average films and only make good films once in a while. For example, The Boss Baby was a pretty lousy and stupid idea for an animated movie, especially given that it was so stupidly marketed with commercials nonstop heavily advertising that Alec Baldwin is voicing a baby boss. While Captain Underpants might turn out to be good, I would really love for DreamWorks Animation to step up their game and start making more original and high quality animated movies that aren't just cash grabs or overly marketed and overhyped forgettable features. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They've declined. Even if I liked Captain Underpants, the lack of originality is there. The Boss Baby was also atrocious. - DCfnaf

They've gone downhill recently, but they are not bad at all, they made great animations like kung fu panda, shrek and shrek 2, and HtTYD - Phillip873

14 The Weinstein Company

One of the most overrated companies of all time. Unfortunately, they gave us Underdogs (lest we forget the fact that it has the racist, spoiled, talentless, weak, compassion-faking Ariana Grande, ugh! ), Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil, Escape from Planet Earth, Unstable Fables and the only good and clever The Weinstein Company ever made is Hoodwinked, disregarding its extremely amateurish animation.

Hoodwinked is a Shrek ripoff

15 Dingo Pictures
16 World Events Productions
17 Crest Animation Productions

They made all the Alpha & Omega sequels. The pups' behaviour from these sequels makes me want to stab my eyes out by how childishly defiant they are. The animation makes excuses out of its budget. The voice acting is very weak. - The Ultimate Daredevil

18 Ilion Animation Studios

Amusement Park will also be made by Nickelodeon and this can never be the only reason why my expectation for this is very low. Screw Planet 51.

Responsible for making the terrible film named Planet 51. I'm hoping that Amusement Park will be good.

19 Vanguard Animation

They deliberately underwhelmed the universe with Happily N'Ever After and Space Chimps, but their sequels and Get Squirrely are so horrible to the point where they gave me (which is The Ultimate Daredevil) a confidence boost to watch Crest Animation Studios's recent films, mockbusters and Sony films released in the 2010s... >8(

20 Reel FX

The Studio that made Free Birds and the Book of life ( the book of life was very clever and nice but free birds was pandering garbage)
