Meanwhile, [=DreamWorks=] continued to search for new ways to expand its entertainment offerings. In September 2013, DWA acquired the archives of UK animation studio Chapman Entertainment, giving it the rights to shows such as ''WesternAnimation/FifiAndTheFlowertots'' and ''WesternAnimation/RoaryTheRacingCar''. In June of 2014, it acquired all of the trademarks, associated copyrights and programming content of the WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat character from Felix the Cat Productions, run by the Oriolo family. These acquisitions, while profitable, failed to change the direction of the studio considerably.

* ShiftedToCGI: The first several animated films were mainly traditionally animated {{Disneyesque}} works. Starting with ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', the studio switched to exclusively making {{All CGI Cartoon}}s. They don't have an interest in going back to 2D films. Dreamworks is a considered a (if not ''the'') major reason why traditionally animated theatrical films stopped being popular in the early-to-mid 2000s.



* StrictlyFormula: They have been accused of enforcing this trope in most of their CGI-animated movies during the 2000s: in the beginning, the main character is a grumpy or antisocial outcast (or at the very least is "different"). Throughout the film he becomes a better person. In the end, he saves the day and everyone accepts him for who he is. Add bonus points for pop culture references, fart jokes and the occasional DreamWorksFace, and you're good to go.

In addition to its in-house films, DWA also benefited from a partnership with Creator/AardmanAnimations, with Nick Park creating well-received stop-motion films like ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheCurseOfTheWereRabbit''.

->''There was this wonderful great mission statement that WaltDisney had: 'I make movies for children, and the child that exists in all of us'. And 14 years later at [=DreamWorks=] I can say 'We make movies for adults, and the adult that exists in every child'. And that literally has been our approach.''
