Creator / Toon City

One of the more popular Asian animation studios, Toon City is an animation studio in the Philippines.

The studio was created in 1993 by Colin Baker, at first having only around 10 animators. Its employment has since multiplied.

As with South Korean studio Sunwoo Entertainment, Toon City's first client was Disney, which hired Toon City to work on Bonkers. Not only have they worked on a large amount of Disney cartoons since, but they've also gotten several other clients, including Universal (for Curious George), Warner Bros. (for Tom and Jerry Tales and The Looney Tunes Show), and even Nickelodeon (for The Mighty B!).

In its earlier years, Toon City was often listed with Moving Images International.

They also have a Facebook page, a YouTube page and a Twitter account.

Tropes found in Toon City's work:

  • Adobe Flash: Mother Up.
  • All-CGI Cartoon: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
  • Animation Bump: Particular high points can be found in most of their Disney work. One notable example is Boo! To You Too, Winnie the Pooh, especially the song "I Wanna Scare Myself".
  • Conspicuous CG: Like Rough Draft, Production I.G and GONZO, they're guilty of this.
  • Limited Animation: Mother Up is a lot more conservative than most of their work.
  • Medium Blending: Happens from time to time on some of their shows.
  • Off Model: All of their Recess episodes. note 
    • The way some of the lesser-known Disney characters were animated in House of Mouse sometimes fall into this trope. A particularly glaring example is Basil and Dawson's cameo in "Donald's Lamp Trade," which they animated.
