Creator: Atkinson Film-Arts

Atkinson Film-Arts was a Canadian animation studio based in Ottawa in the 1970s. It produced the first For Better or for Worse animated special, the first two Care Bears animated specials (predating the animated series and Care Bears: The Movie), The Raccoons specials and the first season of the series, The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin (in association with DiC Entertainment) and even the music video of "The Body Electric" for Rush. The company went bankrupt in the 1980s.

The Spiritual Successor to Atkinson Film-Arts is Lacewood Productions, also based in Ottawa (it doesn't hurt that many of the talents who worked at Lacewood Productions were originally at Atkinson Film-Arts).
