Hong Ying Animation Co., Ltd. (also known as Hong Ying Universe Co., Ltd.) is a Taiwanese animation studio that since 1992, has operated mostly out of its Chinese satellite studio. It was located in Taipei, Taiwan. In addition to the main Taipei studio, the company also has subsidiaries in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China (Suzhou Hong Ying, established in 1992), Shanghai, China (Shanghai Sanding, established in 2002), Beijing, China (Beijing Hongguantianxia, established in 2003), Tokyo, Japan (Tokyo Hong Ying, established in 2004) and Nanjing, Jiangsu, China (Nanjing Hong Ying, established in 2006), as well as overseas animation business offices in Los Angeles, California, USA (established in 1997) and Paris, France (established in 1999). It was founded by Bobby Hsieh in 1986 as Hung Long Animation Company; at the time, it was a subcontractor to Wang Film Productions. After working on a few of Wang's shows, they soon gained an identity of their own, working on a number of cartoons (especially those from DiC), and later providing support of Anime. Sometime during the mid '90s, they changed their name to Hong Ying. There is another studio called Hong Yang (or Suzhou Hong Yang Cartoon), but it appears to be the same studio as Hong Ying, as Hong Ying lists Hong Yang-animated shows on its website.

They are pretty much best known for providing animation for some very trippy shows. That's not to say that's all they do. When they aren't doing weird stuff, they're doing animation for some more realistic shows.

Compare Carbunkle Cartoons, Spumco, Saerom, Wang Film Productions, Morning Sun, Rough Draft Studios and other animation houses known for doing a lot of crazy animation.
