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 (one of which being convicted of fraud and sentenced to 9 years in prison), including the revelation that the Robinson Sucroe series was stolen from The Adventures of Robinson Curiosité, a pitch made by Montreal artist Claude Robinson (with the lead even being based off his own bearded likeness, who was likely a self-insert in the original pitch) and a bunch of accounting issues, 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.
