'''[=ToonBoom=]''' is a digital animation software package produced by Canadian company [=ToonBoom=] Animation, Inc. [=ToonBoom=], along with AdobeFlash, is the go-to software for modern-day 2D digital animators due to its low cost and potential shortcuts that are not offered with traditional ink-and-paint animation. [=ToonBoom=] is also fairly affordable for both professionals and amateurs alike. While Flash has been used more frequently for television/movie animation entertainment for years, it was actually built for interactive web design, thus making it a bit of a curve to create content for other areas, and [=ToonBoom=] software was developed to solve this by tailoring it to the creative cartoon animator's needs instead. They have capabilities that emulate an animator's drafting table, network nodes, built-in automated lip-syncing functions, built-in 3D modeling and intergration, and quality rendering directly from the program. They have separate programs for storyboarding, animating, entire production pipelines, and children's learning.

[=ToonBoom=] has bought over Cambridge Animation Systems, whose Animo software powered the UK's animation industry from the late 80s to the early 2000s.

[=ToonBoom=] is owned by CorusEntertainment, who also owns {{Nelvana}}. Hence it's not surprising that most of Nelvana's productions are done using this software.

Not to be confused with the CartoonBomb. Also not to be confused with WesternAnimation/SonicBoom, which is called ''Sonic Toon'' in Japan.
