* Zig-zagged with the Energizer Bunny, the American mascot for Energizer Batteries. From 1989 to the early 2000s, the Bunny was a remote-controlled model that ran on the batteries it was advertising. This proved difficult for the company during filming due to how much power the model consumed. In the early 2000's, the Bunny was animated in CGI as part of Energizer's "Do You Have the Bunny Inside?" campaign, in which he would dance inside an Energizer battery. After the campaign ended in the mid-2000's, the remote-controlled model of the Bunny was brought back for commercials. As of the 2010's, the Bunny is animated in full CGI.

* The Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon slowly made the shift. After the underwhelming performance of ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' and ''Disney/BrotherBear'', they declared that ''Disney/HomeOnTheRange'' will be their last 2D animated film. Their first attempts at AllCGICartoon, such as ''Disney/ChickenLittle'' and ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'', were not particularly successful though the latter was critically better received than the former. ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' seemed to break the streak, and starting with ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' (which was originally to be done in a 2D/3D mix ala ''WesternAnimation/{{Paperman}}'' but was changed due to developmental issues) all of their AllCGICartoon films are major hits. They made two attempts to return to the 2D animation they used to be famous for, but the lukewarm success of ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' and ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'', paired up with such CGI blockbusters as ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' (which was announced as a traditionally animated film but was quickly changed to CGI) and ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', means that we shouldn't expect any 2D Disney films in the near future.
