'''Amblimation''' was a short-lived animation production arm of Creator/StevenSpielberg's AmblinEntertainment, and it was active from [[TheNineties 1991 until about 1997]], formed with the animation staff from ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. Spielberg created the animation studio after parting ways with Creator/DonBluth. Despite their lavish animation, even when compared to what Disney was putting out at the time, none of the films were critically or commercially successful and the studio closed after only three films and a couple of TV specials.

The company's {{mascot}} was Fievel Mousekewitz from the ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' series, who appears in its production logo. Given that he's both [[MickeyMouse a mouse]], the main character of Spielberg's first entrance into animation and a character that had some personal relevance to Spielberg (being named after his grandfather), it's not hard to see why Fievel was chosen.

The feature animation studio was located in London, England, UK. In 1997, the London studio was shut down and some of the Amblimation staff moved on to Creator/DreamWorksAnimation. After the London studio was shut down, all references with Amblimation became Amblin Entertainment. Today Creator/DreamWorksAnimation is somewhat of a spiritual successor to Amblimation (it's more obvious in Dreamworks' early 2D animated films), and has had far more success.
