Creator: Cookie Jar Entertainment
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 Robinson Sucroe
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 DiC Entertainment
. In 2012, the company was acquired by DHX Media
The company ran the Cookie Jar TV Saturday Morning Cartoon
block on CBS
until 2013, when it was replaced by CBS Dream Team.
