Synergy Animation is a Chinese animation studio.
Based in Shanghai, Synergy Animation is one of the newer Asian animation houses, founded in 2005 by former Disney animators Cindy Ge and Michael Benet. Their goal is to provide animation at small budgets. However the company has an advantage over the similarly-cheap AKOM in that it uses not only traditional animation, but also Flash Animation and CGI.
Currently, being a newer studio, Synergy isn't really quite well known yet, lacking an article on The Other Wiki. The studio is best known for their work on Phineas and Ferb, one of their top projects, having done numerous episodes, including "Summer Belongs to You!", the Christmas Special and Mission Marvel, the latter two with Wang Film Productions.
