->"''Rubbish!''"
-->--Many, many characters in these cartoons

[[http://www.dingo-pictures.de/en Dingo Pictures]] is a German low budget animation studio that has been in existence since the 1990s. Its movies are knockoffs of well known movies, many of them Disney, and in terms of production quality they are... not ''exactly'' on the same level as the films they're mockbusting, which leads to often humorous but sometimes [[UncannyValley nightmarish results]].

Unusually, when translated into English, its movies were sold as games, appearing on the PS1 and PS2 despite the only game portion being puzzle sections. On the PS1 these were published by Midas, and on PS2 by Phoenix Games. The company does not appear to have made any movies for years, but its website is still in operation.

'''Some traits of Dingo Pictures cartoons:'''
* Animation that looks like a mix between MS Paint and water color paintings made by elementary school students.
* Most of them, in the English versions anyway, have only two voice actors - one male and one female. In some cartoons, there's only 1 voice actor.
* Numerous characters often start laughing randomly and silently. This is usually represented by two frames of animation of a head bobbing up and down. Yes, really.
* Dingo Pictures cartoons [[FollowTheLeader are based on Disney or Pixar (or other famous) cartoons]] or public domain stories with which Disney has made adaptations.
* Most of the animal characters are recycled from cartoon to cartoon. Same to bases of human characters.
* They also recycle the backgrounds and background music a lot.
* The words "rubbish", "hell", and "damn" are very commonly used.

!!These animations provide examples of:

* AccentAdaptation: A dog with a Dutch accent in Animal Soccer World, for example.
** Rasputin in Anastasia has one of the thickest Russian accents you can find.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: "MAMMOTH MAYHEM!" from ''Dinosaur Adventure''.
* AlternateHistory: In ''Anastasia'', Communism is never established in Russia and a democratic republic is created instead. However, in a case of TropesAreNotGood, the whole thing seems to play out more like YouFailHistoryForever.
* AtlantisIsBoring: Their Atlantis cartoon. And that's gotta be one of the most boring depictions of Atlantis ever.
* AnthropomorphicShift: An interesting variation. Most (but not all) animal characters here usually walk on four legs except when doing certain tasks which humans do (e.g. play football) which makes them temporarily turn bipeds and get clothes. Oddly enough, when the shift occurs, the characters' legs do not change shape into that which supports bipedal motion, hence you have scenes like a black panther running with wildly flipping hind legs in Animal Soccer World.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology:
** The raccoon character (usually named Wabuu) moves around like a kangaroo. And the way in which he achieves kangaroo-like locomotion is the stuff of horror.
** The gopher and squirrel characters also hop like kangaroos.
** The T-Rex-ish ''thing'' in Dinosaur Adventures has a [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology red button nose]] and is apparently the child of [[CriticalResearchFailure two sauropods]]. In the same movie, [[spoiler:meat eating is treated as [[CarnivoreConfusion cannibalism]]]], which suffice to say is quite face-palming for everyone who even remotely knows what dinosaurs are. But AccidentallyAccurate in that [[spoiler:the ceratopsian like dinosaur is the one who suggests it, this movie having been made several years before the idea that ceratopsians were probably opportunistically omnivorous became mainstream]].
** Djali the goat from Hunchback of Notredame has a black, spherical nose which resembles that of a cartoonish dog's.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory:
** Pocahontas is quite the MindScrew for anyone with any knowledge of these subjects.
** In Hunchback of Notredame, the Eiffel tower can be seen in one aerial shot, despite the story taking place in ''medieval'' Paris.
** In Sword Of Camelot, the medieval setting is disrupted by a small green dinosaur who hops around and laughs. Nevermind the millions of years between the existence of dinosaurs and humans, but the plot is serious otherwise. MoodDissonance to the extreme.
* AuthorAvatar: The crow in the Dalmatians series. However, he ends up doing more than most Author Avatars do by participating in a DeusExMachina near the end.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Due to the [[StylisticSuck art style and dubbing,]] EVERYONE ends up looking and sounding goofy, regardless of how dark and family un-friendly the storylines tend to get. Played more straight with the Jack In the Box from Toys Room who, in between cracking jokes, [[NightmareFuel seriously contemplates using his spring to slice open the new toy's belly.]]
* BilingualBonus: Sort of. These start off in German but any German-language background jokes won't be corrected, so the "Julius Cheesar" statue at the end of Mouse Police might go unnoticed by some.
* CannibalClan: In ''Dinosaur Adventure'', the main characters come across some of the dinosaurs who'd survived the eruption. As there isn't enough grass and leaves to eat (as the area was destroyed by a volcano), the dinos have resorted to eating meat. The leader Argh says that they get stronger every day eating meat, much to the good guys' horror.
* CaptainErsatz: Almost all the characters are ripped-off from Disney, DonBluth, or DreamWorks cartoons, some more obscure than others. In a lot of cases, the design of the characters will look ''exactly the same'' as the ripped-off original.
* CaptainObvious: In ''Anastasia'' : "Nobody has survived. They must all be dead!"
* CartoonBomb: Rasputin does that in ''Anastasia''; the first time, it destroys the tsar's palace. The second time, it [[spoiler: kills him, but oddly, not Sasha, the dog.]]
* ChocolateBaby: In ''Dinosaur Adventure'', the main character's parents resemble Brachiosaurus. But the main character looks more like a [[spoiler: ''Tyrannosaurus rex'']].
* ConspicuouslyLightPatch: Especially conspicuous since the backgrounds appear to have been done ''in crayon''.
* CoversAlwaysLie: The box art and title screens often depict characters that don't appear in the cartoon... or characters with a different role than they actually have.
* DeadGuyJunior: In dinosaur adventure, once the characters go to the place where the rest of the dinosaurs fled, Tio finds their parents had a second son, who was named Tio II, after his "deceased" brother.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: In Son of the Lion King, Robin asks Black Panther's son "Your father the Black Panther is your father?"
* DownerEnding: ''The Toys Room'', which ends with the implication that none of the toys will ever be loved again.
** ''Hunchback of Notredame'' actually manages the rare feat of having an ending ''more'' cynical and depressing than [[Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame the original]], as it [[spoiler: leaves Esmeralda alive, [[JerkAss abandoning Quasimodo to rot in a jail cell after murdering Frollo over her]].]]
* {{Expy}}: Most notably in ''Animal Soccer World''. Expies of CaptainErsatz.
* ExtraExtraReadAllAboutIt: Happens a few times (e.g., in ''Mouse Police''), and proves why this trope is [[DeadHorseTrope dead]] elsewhere.
* GenreShift: The Toys Room has a different art style, has a different, better English speaking narrator, and is not a copy of Disney, but a sort of combination of Toy Story and The Brave Little Toaster. It is much darker than their other work, and cutesy artwork aside, is devoid of any happy moments.
* GoodBadTranslation: Sometimes played straight and sometimes averted entirely for not translating a few parts.
** For an example, in Legend of Pocahontas, Pocahontas yells "NEIN! NEIN!" when an old man [[spoiler: Shoots Quickspear while having three arms.]]
** Signs and other things in the background aren't translated at all. That's why even in the English versions, there are "polizei" (police) cars or signs in front of an animal shelter that read "tierheim" (animal home).
** When any of the characters start to sing, you can hear the original language in the background.
*** In the English dub of Animal Soccer World, the football anthem is sung in Dutch over the original German.
*** In the English dub of Aladin, they didn't even bother dubbing over the intro song, and just left it in German. If this wasn't weird enough, the voice actors speak in genuinely broken English - "Can you image India?" - and part of their words are cut off to fit the frames. Furthermore the voice actors in this are obviously Dutch or German kids who learned English at school, and not professional voice actors, which just goes to show how much Dingo didn't care.
* HongKongDub: Just watch the lip sync in these animations! Often it's so off that sometimes one voice may play over other character. Often, the lip sync is wrong even in the original German!
* [[ImAHumanitarian I'm A Dinotarian]]: In ''Dinosaur Adventure'', some of the dinosaurs that survived the eruption couldn't find plants, so they resorted to ''eating other dinosaurs''.
* InNameOnly: Some of their cartoons which have only the title, character appearance, and box art looking similar to what they're ripping off, have a markedly different plot from the (usually) Disney source material. For example, Countryside Bears (a sort of ripoff of Franchise/WinnieThePooh) has a plot altogether different than what you'd expect, and is even packaged with an altogether different work (Wabuu's eponymous story).
* JerkAss: Wabuu, ''especially'' in his eponymous short.
** Esmeralda from ''Hunchback of Notredame'' also counts, due to her actions at the ending.
** Peek from ''Dinosaur Adventure'', especially towards Tio. Even when Tio almost dies from his fall and [[spoiler: [[DespairEventHorizon almost gives up on trying to find his parents upon seeing his new brother]] ]], Peek teases him about it. Oro rightfully calls him out on this.
--> ''"PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! Don't be such rubbish! [[spoiler:We all have siblings, and out parents love us more!]]"''
* LargeHam: Oro, the professor dinosaur in Dinosaur Adventure.
-->"''''Ooouhhh''' are you as stupid as you ''always were?'' Haven't you LEARNED ANYTHING?! SCIENCE HAS MADE PROGRESS! One day we'll all be able to '''fly!'''"
* LoveAtFirstSight: In their Pocahontas cartoon, this trope was taken to the extreme, accompanied by a horrible song.
* LimitedAnimation: [[UpToEleven And that's putting it lightly.]] This makes {{Creator/Filmation}} look like {{Disney}}.
* MisplacedWildlife: Hyenas in Pocahontas for one. Apes in Dinosaur Adventure for another. The toucan who appears in most of them, regardless of whether its set in a forest or jungle. Wabuu the raccoon seems to be the creator's favorite character, and often appears regardless of whether he's appropriate for the story.
* MoodDissonance: The look of utter revulsion and horror on Hercules' face when he falls in LoveAtFirstSight.
* MouthFlaps: In all of their works, most obviously in Animal Soccer World.
* TheMockbuster: Almost all of its animations.
* NarratingTheObvious: Some of their films are narrated as if they were books on tape rather than cartoons.
* NoExportForYou: There are a handful of movies that haven't been translated into English - notably The Musicians Of Bremen (which is a distinctively German story).
* NonDubbedGrunts: Obvious at some point.
* NonFatalExplosions: Played with. At the end of ''Anastasia'', [[spoiler: Rasputin manages to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard get killed by his own]] CartoonBomb but the dog simply got covered in ashes.]]
* NothingExcitingEverHappensHere: Harry the "reporter" in Animal Soccer World.
* ObligatorySwearing: A few examples, possibly due to ValuesDissonance:
** "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?!" - Tio's Dad
** "Oh, damn! I'm much too little for that!" - Tio
** "I can't find my damn hairbrush!" - Lucy
** "...Smart-ass." - Unnamed gangster in Mouse Police
** "Damn." - Lucy in Dalmatians 3
* OffModel:
** In Pocahontas, one of the characters has 3 arms when firing a gun.
** A recurring goat has three tails. RuleOfThree?
** Tree branches float in midair and a camel's neck is not connected to its body.
* PerpetualSmiler: Peek from ''Dinosaur Adventure'' only ever frowns once. Even after surviving a heavy volcano eruption that turns half of the survivors into (Basically) cannibals, he's still smiling.
* {{Plagiarism}}:
** Several of their character designs were obviously traced from other works. ''Lion [--and the--] King'', for instance, has both [[Disney/TheLionKing adult Simba and young Simba]] appearing with only slight alterations.
** The slide puzzle game on [=PlayStation=] copies of ''Lion and the King'' uses screenshots taken directly from the ''Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion'' anime.
* RascallyRaccoon: Wabuu. The creator intended him to be cheeky, but he's sociopathic.
* ReclusiveArtist: Credits do not seem to exist for the Phoenix Games and Midas Interactive English dubs for the movies, possibly out of shame. The people/person making Dingo Pictures seem to be completely anonymous. The lack of copyright info on the footage even makes it seem that the movies are created spontaneously.
* RecurringCharacter: So many. Lots of dogs (including Dalmatians, a Spaniel), a cat with a red bow, blue birds, three vultures who are always sitting on a branch and found always together, an alligator, Wabuu himself, and many more.
* RecurringRiff: There are about a dozen or little more pieces of background music used frequently in their different cartoons. One of the more infamous pieces is the ominous "jungle" music featured in Animal Soccer World, which plays for almost the entirety of the movie even when other pieces of music play over it.
* ReusedCharacterDesign
* RhymesOnADime: Peek, one of the characters in ''Dinosaur Adventure'', has this as his only character trait.
* SayMyName: Happens twice in ''Dinosaur Adventure''.
** First time, when Tio's father sees his son almost die from a fall.
--> "''TIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!''"
** Second, when Oro hears Peek teasing Tio about [[spoiler: his parents possibly abandoning him]].
--> "''PEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! Don't be such rubbish!''"
* SchizoTech: In ''Legend of Atlantis'' the Atlanteans have robots and computers while the rest of the world is in the Classical Era.
* SlasherSmile: A side effect of the lazy artwork and animation.
* SoundtrackDissonance: There are tons of examples of it.
** Most notable is the English dub of Animal Soccer World where ominous jungle music NEVER. STOPS. Even when other songs start in ''Animal Soccer World'', the jungle music continues underneath them.
** Or some parts in Moses: The Prince of Egypt where punk rock music plays.
** In Animal Soccer World, a band is practicing a soccer song. Background music consists of cheap MIDI with a banjo, 3 types of drums, and a violin. But the band is playing a violin, one drum, a cello, and a saxophone! And to put the icing on the cake, a donkey tells the violinist that "only the guitar solo, it is still a problem".
** Dinosaur Adventure starts with an industrial electronica track, which is about the most inexplicable music choice you could have in a movie involving dinosaurs.
* SssssnakeTalk: Snake in Son of the Lion King and Moses: Prince of Egypt.
* StockFootage: The same parts of the film are often played over and over. Sometimes even the same backgrounds are used ''in different cartoons''.
* SurpriseCreepy: Wabuu's story in Countryside Bears.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Wabuu's song in every animation he's been in qualifies. As do the songs in Pocahontas and Aladin.
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: In ''Pocahontas'', Wabuu kicks the screen with his creepy feet just to emphasize he doesn't need a ''shoe'', making him even more of a [[TheScrappy Scrappy]].
