SIP Animation (formerly Saban International Paris) was the predecessor to Saban Entertainment founded in 1977 by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy.
In October 2001, when Saban met its demise and was renamed to BVS Entertainment, Haim Saban sold off Saban International Paris to become independent and with The Walt Disney Company purchasing a minority stake within the company, they were renamed to SIP Animation in 2002 and continued to produce cartoons until their closure in 2009.
As of 2018, most of SIP's library and their former assets are under the control of Disney via either The Walt Disney Company France or BVS Entertainment, with the exception of co-productions with CinéGroupe, which are owned by that company.
