Cookie Jar Entertainment was a Canadian entertainment company founded in 1976 as Cinar. It started out as a film and television distribution company in New York, but in the 1980s, it moved to Montreal and would go on to make many children's shows, specifically animated cartoons.

After scandals involving its top executives, including the revelation that the popular RobinsonSucroe was stolen from ''Robinson Curiosité'', a pitch made by Montreal artist Claude Robinson (with the lead even based on his own bearded likeness!), the studio was bought out by former {{Nelvana}} executive Michael Hirsch, relocated to Toronto, and re-branded as Cookie Jar Entertainment in 2004. In 2008, the company acquired Creator/DiCEntertainment. In 2012, the company was acquired by Creator/DHXMedia.

The company ran the Creator/CookieJarTV SaturdayMorningCartoon block on Creator/{{CBS}} until 2013, when it was replaced by CBS Dream Team.
