Toon-Us-In Animations was a U.S. animation studio located in L.A.'s Chinatown. It was formed by some employees who previously worked on Ren and Stimpy, such as Andy Kim. Sometime during the '90s, they opened a South Korean branch, as The True Meaning of Crumbfest lists "Seoul, South Korea" as its location, and Terry Pike mentioned on his Linked In that he supervised animation on Freaky Stories in Seoul.


It is highly likely that MyPlan Animation is an off-shoot of Toon-Us-In, as it featured Andy Kim as a staff member and, considering both Toon-Us-In and MyPlan worked on Watership Down and various Peanuts sepcials, it's not a stretch to assume the two studios are related. As such, both studios' work are listed in this article.
