Creator: Rough Draft Studios

Rough Draft Studios is a California/South Korean based studio founded in 1991 by animator Gregg Vanzo. Originally the company started out in a garage. But while working on The Ren & Stimpy Show, Gregg's wife Nikki suggested to show creator John Kricfalusi about outsourcing to South Korea—which was how the company's South Korean division was formed.

Besides doing Western Animation they also do Anime under the name Orange due to issues with stock holders in South Korea, they also have a unit in Japan under that name as well (established in 2004) but they only do CG work. You can find their list here.

Compare Production I.G, Toon City, GONZO and Digital eMation, four companies that also use CGI in their animation, and on the Korean side of things. Compare (And contrast) AKOM, their partner on The Simpsons, DR Movie & MOI Animation, subsidiaries of Madhouse, Hanho Heung-Up, Saerom, Sunwoo Entertainment and JM Animation.

Tropes associated with this company:

  • Animation Bump: Largely due to their CG. Making them one of the better received overseas companies.
  • Conspicuous CG: a reoccurring thing with them and is present for most of their shows but incredibly noticable in The Simpsons Movie and Sym-Bionic Titan. However, they are also capable of doing this incredibly well. Scott Vanzo, a relative of Gregg, is the CG supervisor of Futurama.
  • Deranged Animation: Some of the shows they've worked on (especially Ren & Stimpy and The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat)
  • Limited Animation: In some of their work for Hanna Barbera/Cartoon Network.
  • Medium Blending: Hand-drawn animation and CGI (Either by themselves or, in the case of one Simpsons Halloween special, with Pacific Data Images providing the latter).
  • Non-Indicative Name: Their animation is really anything but "Rough Draft."
  • Off Model: Ren & Stimpy aside, even these guys are not immune on a few occasions, having exhibited this in several episodes of SpongeBob in their first season a lot.
  • Production Posse: Cartoon Network Studios uses Rough Draft a lot.
