The Top Ten

They need to be at The top - VideoGamefan5

Shameless terrible carbon copies of more successful movie by better companies - codydoestuff

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

If you watch any of their films, I'm sure that at some point you'll think: ¿Are they trying to make the worst movie ever? or ¿Are they really trying to live doing things like this?

2 Splash Entertainment 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

This studio can go die in a fire!

3 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

The only good movies Sony Animation has made are Surf's Up, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and Hotel Transylvania. The rest are either mediocre or unbelievably horrible. - Disneykid00

All they do is put product placement all across their movies - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

4 Spark Plug Entertainment 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

Gas Leeches - Neonco31

5 Illumination 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

I already made a blog post trashing this Animation studio and what they stand for. Interested in seeing yours! - Phillip873

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

Almost all of their movies are garbage ripoffs. For an example The Secret Life Of Pets is a ripoff of Toy Story. - RaccoonCartoon

With the exception of Despicable Me, Illumination has never made a good movie. Period.

6 Threshold Entertainment Threshold Entertainment

Foodfight! Enough said. - DCfnaf

The studio that made Foodfight! - SplashMoun10

You'd think that after having Foodfight's original recording stolen, they'd just give up, but instead they wasted all their money bringing it back to life, and it just got worst.. - RaccoonCartoon

7 Blue Sky Studios Blue Sky Studios Blue Sky Studios is an American computer animation film studio based in Greenwich, Connecticut that has been owned by 20th Century Fox since 1997. The studio was founded in 1987 by Chris Wedge, Michael Ferraro, Carl Ludwig, Alison Brown, David Brown, and Eugene Troubetzkoy after the company they worked ...read more.

The only film I like from them is their peanuts movie

Ice Age Sucks Now - VideoGamefan5

They made Ice Age into a stretch of a series, they make a lot of unnecessary sequels no-one asked for, and why did they have to add a dabbing scene in Ferdinand? - RaccoonCartoon

The only films I like from these guys are the first few Ice Age films, The Peanuts Movie, and Ferdinand.

8 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

9 Mondo TV

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

Awful! - RaccoonCartoon

10 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 only like Disney half the time, and, quite frankly, the only reason I have to like their movies is because of nostalgia. Their movies are pretty much always made just to sell merchandise, get rich, make more movies, get more money, make more toys, get more money, the cycle continues. Disney fans are really just clogs in the system, feeding Disney money. - RaccoonCartoon

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

Disney isn't a bad animation studio, I think they're great, but a lot of their 2010s films (loved their old classics and some of their 2000s films) haven't really caught my eye except for Moana and maybe Wreck-it Ralph. Tangled was alright but nothing special, Winnie the Pooh was horrible, I've no interest in seeing the overhyped Frozen and Zootopia, and I'm not too keen on the idea of them remaking their classics as live action films (do we need a live action Lion King? ), even if Jungle Book was alright and Maleficent was good as a different interpretation of Sleeping Beauty and improved upon parts of the original (giving Aurora more of a character/personality), it gives me the impression they're just for money besides doing new impressions.

I'm still looking forward to seeing Christopher Robin though.

The Newcomers

? Teletoon Teletoon Teletoon is a Canadian English-language Category A specialty channel owned by Corus Entertainment that broadcasts animated programming.

Behind Johnny Test, Rocket Monkeys, Mega Babies, Looped, Totally Spies, George of the Jungle, many mediocre and horrible cartoons.

They can only profit off of fart and poop humour, and it never works. - RaccoonCartoon

The Contenders

11 Titanic Cartoons SRL Roma

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

Why make a cartoon about the TITANIC? And why make it dumb and goofy!? - RaccoonCartoon

Rapping dog!

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

Dreamworks... they should work on the story.

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.

Well, there is the matter of the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct allegations... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Hoodwinked is a Shrek ripoff

Crappy, awful movies. - RaccoonCartoon

15 Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon 90's-2000's will remain a classic for years to come, however, it's going the same path that modern Disney Channel and Disney have been going: outdated "meme" references such as Emojis, dabs, whip/nae nae, etc. Even modern Cartoon Network has been doing it a bit, let's just hope that THEY don't fall into the trashcan as well! - RaccoonCartoon

I can’t say they are a good company an,ore I mean look at the current shows it’s just depressing.

16 Dingo Pictures

1. Awful dubs with lip syncing so bad that you can't tell who's talking.
2. Even without the dubs, the voice acting is still awful.
3. Really bad animation.
4. All they ever make is ripoffs! - RaccoonCartoon

17 Vanguard Animation

This studio never got fresh on rotten tomatoes

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(

18 Laika Laika

Oh, come on! Laika is awesome, they don't make ripoffs like all the others on the list, and they spend a real long time on the stop motion, unlike all the others on the list that spend 2 hours on CGI. - RaccoonCartoon

It's a horror studio with movies that gives me nightmares

This studio is awesome I love coralline, paranorman, box trolls and kubo and two strings who put it here

This is good! Coraline and boxtrolls should be enough

19 World Events Productions
20 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

21 Ilion Animation Studios

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

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.

22 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)

23 Pixar Pixar Pixar, also referred to as Pixar Animation Studios, is an American computer animation film studio based in Emeryville, California that is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. Pixar began in 1979 as the Graphics Group, part of the Lucasfilm computer division, before its spin-out as a corporation ...read more.

Cars 2 is not the best animation studio of all time, but it is totally genius! Also, it's put here twice. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Everything but Cars 2 was good but it gets this spot because of CARS 2

24 Jetlag productions

Lots of low budget Disney rip offs. - SteelCity99

25 Walt Disney CGI

Moana was good, but I can't watch anything else without suffocating of boredom. I miss the old 2D animations, which, unfortunately, may not return. - RaccoonCartoon

They ripped off Toy story with Zootopia! - VideoGamefan5

What?! If anything from the past couple years was a rip off of toy story it would be the secret life of pets - Phillip873

26 DisneyToon Studios
27 Good Times
28 DHX Media

Johnny Test and Caillou suck!

29 Cartoon Network Studios

They used to be good, but now they're turning into modern Nickolodeon with shows like 2016 Power Puff Girls. - RaccoonCartoon
