* For DreamWorksAnimation, it chanegd for the state of feature animation in North America. Before that company, the state of the field was Creator/WaltDisneyPictures and a bunch of little leaguers. Sure, there were occasional winners over the decades like ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' and ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', but otherwise, all efforts failed like the Creator/FleischerStudios' doomed efforts in the 1940s to hopelessly open the field for others to play. All that changed with [=DreamWorks=] in the 2000s, first with Creator/AardmanAnimations with ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' and then DWA's own artists with ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', led by Jeffery Katzenberg, who knew how to beat Disney at their own game (albeit because he played for Disney in the first place). Today, the door has been blown open with a unprecedented plethora of rival companies winning a piece of the animated feature film pie with big hits of their own and we have a golden age of feature animation as a result where the public is eventually realizing that not AllAnimationIsDisney.

** Furthermore, the directors of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' demonstrated the creative sea change DA has become when they proposed the famous rope bridge fight. The animators told them that they didn't know how to do that. A lesser studio could have simply given up or ask "What would Pixar do?," but instead, it was a moment of inspiration for the directors, who essentially responded with "Great! That means it has ''never'' been done before!"
