'''Saban Entertainment''' (formerly Saban Productions) was an independent television production company formed in 1983 by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy. It was best-known for importing and dubbing Japanese series, both of the {{anim|e}}ated and [[{{toku}} live-action]] variety. In addition to that it teamed up with French production teams and Creator/DiCEntertainment for [[Anime/TheMysteriousCitiesOfGold several]] [[WesternAnimation/JayceAndTheWheeledWarriors animated]] [[Anime/{{Ulysses 31}} series.]] They notably allied with Creator/{{Fox}} in the 1990s, forming a joint venture to run Creator/FoxKids (and eventually Fox Family) alongside them and contributing many series (''Power Rangers'' or otherwise) to the block. Thanks to Fox acquiring the remnants of New World Entertainment, they also gained the rights to the library of Marvel Productions (aka Marvel Films and New World Animation), as well as its' predecessor Creator/DepatieFrelengEnterprises (with the exception of DFE co-productions, and Marvel's co-productions with Creator/SunbowEntertainment).

In October 2001, Saban met its demise, and was renamed to BVS Entertainment. This came two months after Haim Saban and News Corporation sold Saban and Fox Family Worldwide (now ABC Family Worldwide) to [[Creator/{{Disney}} The Walt Disney Company]]. Most of their library is still owned and controlled by Disney, except for ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', its successors (''Series/VRTroopers,'' ''Series/{{Beetleborgs}},'' ''Series/TheMysticKnightsOfTirNaNog,'' and ''Series/MaskedRider''), and ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}''; all of which were reacquired from Disney by Saban Entertainment's successor, Creator/SabanBrands, in 2010.

In 2002, Disney formed Saban's SpiritualSuccessor, '''Sensation Animation''', which was created to continue dubbing ''Digimon'' episodes (specifically, ''Anime/DigimonFrontier''). After the dubbing completed, Sensation was done in by Disney losing license to ''Digimon''; Well Go USA later held distribution to the next ''Digimon'' series, ''[[Anime/DigimonSavers Digimon Data Squad]]'', followed by Saban Brands and Cinedigm (through Newvideo) reacquiring the rights.

Note: The infamous "[[WesternAnimation/ToonMakersSailorMoon Saban Moon]]" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7Hge38AkFg trailer]] [[MisBlamed has nothing to do with Saban.]] This was in fact a misnomer of the fandom because Renaissance Atlantic, Toei's American branch that acted as a middleman between them and Saban for ''Power Rangers'', was behind it.
