->"''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. 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:'''
* Most of them 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.
* 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.
* [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking The word "rubbish" is 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 established 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.
** Not only that, but the way in which he achieves kangaroo-like locomotion is the stuff of horror.
** The T-Rex-ish ''thing'' in Dinosaur Adventures has a [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology red button nose]] and is apparently the child of [[CriticalResearchFailure two sauropods]].
** Djali the goat from Hunchback of Notredame has a black, spherical nose which resembles that of a cartoonish dog's.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory [[ArtisticLicenseGeography and Geography]]: 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.
* 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: You've probably seen most of their characters before.
* CaptainObvious: In ''Anastasia'' : "Nobody has survived. They must all be dead!"
* CartoonBomb: Rasputin does that in ''Anastasia''
* 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.
** And the artwork is usually [[DetailHoggingCover much better]].
* 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.
* {{Expy}}: Most notably in ''Animal Soccer World''. Expies of CaptainErsatz.
* ExtraExtraReadAllAboutIt: Happens a few times 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.
* 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!
* 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.
* 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 {{Filmation}} look like {{Disney}}.
* MisplacedWildlife: Hyenas in Pocahontas for one. Apes in Dinosaur Adventure for another.
** Not to mention 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) and Balto (which was a largely forgotten Dreamworks movie).
* NonDubbedGrunts: Obvious at some point.
* NonFatalExplosions: Played with. At the end of ''Anastasia'', 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.
** Similarly, a recurring goat has three tails. RuleOfThree?
** Not to mention that tree branches float in midair and a camel's neck is not connected to its body.
*** It's fair to say that this company's works are MADE of this, the above examples are only a few of the more egregious moments.
* {{Plagiarism}}: Several of their character designs were obviously traced from other works. ''Lion [--and the--] King'', for instance, has both [[Disney/TheLionKing Mufasa and young Simba]] appearing with only slight alterations.
* 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: One of the characters in Dinosaur Adventure has this as his only character trait.
* 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 "guitar solo still needs a lot of work.".
** 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''.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Wabuu's song in every animation he's been in qualifies. As do the songs in Pocahontas and Aladin.
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: At one point, Wabuu kicks the screen with his creepy feet just to emphasize [[PainfulRhyme he doesn't need a SHOE]], adding yet another JerkAss quality to the character.
* TooDumbToLive: The Hydra (Pronounced Hedra for some reason.) in Herkules, how does Herkules beat it? he tells the heads that the middle one regrows, that the middle Hydra head is immortal, how do they test to see whether or not it is actually immortal? by dumping themselves into a nearby Volcano of course which instantly kills them.
* 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.
* TheUnpronounceable: The name of one of the major characters in the Dalmatians series is Tüpfelchen. Tüpfelchen's name is pronounced many different times throughout the cartoons. Among these are "tu-full-shin", "tu-foo-jin", "ta-vulchin", and other weird pronunciations. The correct pronunciation, "toop-full-chin," is rarely used.
* TheDitz: Butcher in the Dalmatians series.
