Worst Animation Studios


The Top Ten

1 Video Brinquedo Video Brinquedo

If you make a great 979.555.728$ movie (random numbers) then they will try to make a 1$ reboot of your movie or a ripoff. - XtheXlmao

What could we expect from a Filthy Brazilian company?

Every bad animation studio looks good compared to Studio Brinquedo - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

Just terrible

2 Illumination Illumination

Illumination Pictures is a bad animation studio. The only good things they made is the whole Despicable Me series and one of their remakes. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

When I think of Illumination, I think of some of the least imaginative movies ever created. With their cheap animation process leaving their movies to look horrible, to their basic stories that are trying to pander to every type of kid (Sing), to their horrible interpretation of some Dr Seuss stories, and the blatent rip of of other famous animated movies in The Secret Life of Pets. It seems their creative team lost any sort of creativity after the original Despicable Me and they couldn't even produce another film in the same franchise that gets anywhere near the original. And lastly they created Minions.

See my comment for Sony, some are good and some are bad, sometimes I feel like Illumination's haters are badnwagoning, I seriously don't see the hate for the Despicable Me series, all the haters say is "It's childish and pathetic", I respect opinions and all, but how are they the worst? And yes, I hate Hop, TSLoP and Sing, but their Lorax movie was great with a great message and their Despicable Me franchise is legendary including the overhated Minions - darthvadern

Sell out studios

They are known for making awful content

This studio can go die in a fire!

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

Norm of the North is absolutely horrendous. - DCfnaf

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 Dingo Pictures


Pathetic. - Peeko

6 The Weinstein Company 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

Escape from Planet Earth was UGGGH worst movie ever animated?

7 Threshold Entertainment Threshold Entertainment

Why they spent 60,000,000 on fodfight

This should be tied at number 1 with video Brinquedo because they made Foodfight the worst movie ever.

Foodfight! Enough said. - DCfnaf

The studio that made Foodfight! - SplashMoun10

8 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

9 Sony Sony

The only films from the studio I like are Surf's Up, Arthur Christmas, Pirates! : Band of Misfits, Goosebumps, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Everything else just sucks. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Honestly, this is worse than Illumination. - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001

Their only good movies are Arthur Christmas, Hotel Transylvania and Cloudy with a chance of meatballs! The emoji movie was absolute crap and an insult to animation. What a disappointment they are.

They are not bad they are way better than all the bad studios on this list but animat would love this

13 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(

14 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 original Ice Age and The Peanuts Movie were the only good ones.

They. SUCK all they do is make ICE age movies. - B1ueNew

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

Ice Age Sucks Now - VideoGamefan5

15 ToonBox Entertainment 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

16 Lionsgate

Alpha and omega! sequels

17 Rainmaker Studios
18 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.

19 Nickelodeon Nickelodeon

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

20 The Asylum

All the movie they make in this compagnie, are just rip-off of other populor movie that people know

Their movie animations are so so so lazy and also they make animated movie rip-offs that are also lazy like HOLY GOSH WHAT IS LIFE! LOOK AT TROLLAND FOR INSTANTS!

21 IFD Films and Arts Limited

The Hong Kong company behind such "classic" films like Beauty and Warrior, Ali Baba and the Gold Raiders, Thunder Prince, Space Thunder Kids, Savior of the Earth, Diatron-5/Space Transformers, Raiders of Galaxy, Protectors of Universe, and Captain of Cosmos. - PerfectImpulseX

22 Venus Centre

Enchanted Princess Party? More like Disgusting Stupid Failure! This show sucks! This show is for babies! This show is a huge rip-off of Disney Princess which is way better. This show involves five preteen princesses who love to go on failure adventures together. Cindy is a huge crybaby. Bea is a big tear jerker. Bella is a spoiled brat. Clara is creepy. And Stella? Well! I don't care about her. The animation is bad, the voices are irritating, the music is stupid, and the characters are ugly. Thank god it got cancelled and taken off the air! I don't know who likes, hates, and neutrals to this show, so I'm gonna leave it be. So Enchanted Princess Party sucks! And so does Playhouse Disney Clay! Anyways, Ōban Star-Racers is octillion times better than Enchanted Princess Party, end of rant!

I used to watch Enchanted Princess Party when I was younger.

They ripped off Disney Princess for Enchanted Princess Party!

Spacetoon Interactive has CGI animated preteen girls for example.

Why can't they just make their own movies? - Croy987

Lots of low budget Disney rip offs.

24 DHX Media

Johnny Test and Caillou suck!

25 Laika Laika Laika, LLC is an American stop-motion animation studio specializing in feature films, commercial content for all media, music videos, and short films.

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

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

Looks like someone here is SCARED TOO EASILY!
Seriously, Laika is amazing. - 445956

Oversaturated the Lego movie with 4 uneccasary spinoffs. - B1ueNew

29 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

Why Disney here

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

NaH, The Asylum is worse

It’s an amazing studio actually. - BlazingParasol

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

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

33 4kids Entertainment

Horrid English dubbing of animes like One Piece, Sonic X, etc. To be honest though, my first anime that I've ever seen back when I was a kid was the Sonic X 4Kids version anime. I hate what 4Kids does to heartfelt works such as One Piece though. Funimation is no saint either, but I'd choose them over 4Kids ANY time of the day...or just watch my anime in sub. Lol.

34 Arascope Films

They rip-off my favorite shows to make an Arabic show out of cartoon characters, with bad 3D animation in Egypt.

Like Wuz Wuz & Bott Bott for example.

35 Klasky Csupo

This one DESERVED to be on this list, because they produced some of the most GOD AWFUL pieces of animated shows ever made for television. Rugrats sucked, the Wild Thornberrys sucked, Santo Bugito sucked, Stressed Eric (season 1) sucked, Rocket Power sucked, As told by Ginger sucked, just EVERY animated show they produced sucked. The only good shows from Klasky Csupo were Duckman, the Spy vs Spy shorts for MADtv, Aaahh! Real Monsters, and the first three seasons of the Simpsons. Everything else just sucks. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy - Dude you need to chill out and why are you so negative seriously. 😑
