Plus One Animation is a Seoul based Korean animation studio.

First popping up in 1991 as a subsidiary of Saerom, the studio formed because DiC asked Choon Man Lee, who was previously an overseas director for A.C. Productions on The Real Ghostbusters, to work on the spin-off Slimer. Plus One's main claim to fame is working on the works of Mike Judge. While the company hasn't been credited on anything since the short-lived Beavis and Butt-head revival in 2011, their website remains online, and was even updated after the deprecation of Adobe Flash at the end of 2020.

Compare Rough Draft Studios, their partner on Mike Judge's shows. Do not confuse with Timeshift Channel.
