[[http://sunwoo.1004hp.com/eng/index.php Sunwoo Entertainment]] is South Korean animation studio. They started doing animation in 1979 (though they existed as a company as early as 1974), first working on South Korean productions, then for {{Disney}} nearly a decade later and have since become one of the busier overseas animation studios.

Back in TheNineties, Sunwoo had a few companies spun-off from it: Anivision (in 1991), Grimsaem (in 1997), and Sunwoo Digital (in 1998). In 2000, however, the spin-offs were all sucked back into the main studio[[labelnote:Note]](Although that didn't stop some shows, notably the ones from Klasky-Csupo, to still credit the defunct studios even after the merger)[[/labelnote]]. They also have a toy company (Named Mocom Toys; making them one of two animation studio that owns a toy company)[[note]]the other being Creator/HanhoHeungUp[[/note]], responsible for releasing Creator/{{Hasbro}}'s ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' toys (as well as stuff for ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'', ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'', Creator/{{Disney}} and others).

In addition to Disney, Sunwoo and its spin-offs have also worked for Creator/{{Universal}}, Creator/CookieJarEntertainment, Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox, and, of course, Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}.

Compare Creator/ToonCity (another studio that got its start with Disney), TMSEntertainment, WangFilmProductions, Creator/RoughDraftStudios, the Creator/WaltDisneyAnimationUnits, and Creator/KennedyCartoons, other studios that Sunwoo and its spin-offs have worked alongside.

!!Tropes found in the works of Sunwoo and its spin offs:
* AllCGICartoon: Has made and/or distributed several of these.
* AnimationBump: Grimsaem's feature film work, as well as their work on ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''.
* {{Animesque}}: ''Mix Master'' and ''Yobi''.
* ConspicuousCG
* DerangedAnimation: Plenty of moments in ''Aaahh! Real Monsters''.
* MediumBlending: Several shows.
* NoExportForYou[=/=]BadExportForYou: How they've treated the South Korean releases of the ''Transformers'' toy line. ''[[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Animated]]'''s especially.
* OffModel: A common complaint with the company's Disney projects. That, and how [[LimitedAnimation their animation as a whole looks bland and uninteresting]] compared to some of the higher quality studios like Walt Disney Japan and Australia.
** Reportedly, Joe Murray was less than satisfied with their work on ''Rocko's Modern Life'', and switched to Creator/RoughDraftStudios for its final season because of this.
** Their first few ''Recess'' episodes were ''extremely'' off-model, most notably "Jinxed", "To Finster With Love", "Big Brother Chad", and "The Legend of Big Kid". However, these occurrences lessened as season one went on, and have since been considered to be one of the best animation departments for the show.
** On the commentaries on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' DVD sets, the staff didn't mention Anivision by name. But did mention on one of their episodes ("I Married Marge") that the overseas studio at the time was having difficulty with the size of the pupils. Indeed, it was quite common for the characters in episodes animated by Anivision to have large pupils. As if the characters were perpetually stoned.
