Kennedy Cartoons was an animation studio based in Torontomarker, Canadamarker and Manilamarker, Philippinesmarker that did work for the following animated series:

Glen Kennedy and other animators

The animation director for Kennedy Cartoons was almost always Glen Kennedy, who also was the animation director for A Pup Named Scooby Doo in the late '80s. Many of Kennedy's animation quirks on the Tiny Toons and Darkwing Duck episodes can be seen on Tales of Worm Paranoia, as well as on A Pup Named Scooby Doo, in which he was the show's animation director during the first season at Wang Film Productions.

Dan Lee, another Kennedy Cartoons animator, went on to Pixar before his death in 2005. Glen Kennedy was also a animator on Jetsons: The Movie.

Quality Control

The studio quickly gained notoriety around the Internet for its work on the first season of Tiny Toon Adventures. Disney subcontracted to them for many of their Disney Afternoon shows. In addition, they often followed inconsistent model designs, and sometimes characters would change animation style from scene to scene. Scenes animated by Glen Kennedy were often super-bouncy with a pseudo-Tex Avery/Bob Clampett style, and often had out-of-control movements for no particular reason. A similar problem also occurred with Darkwing Duck. By Goof Troop, this inconsistency problem had all but disappeared, when their animation was improved.

Back then before the problem was over, Steven Spielberg and the folks at Warner Bros. had always hated Kennedy Cartoons's sloppy output, and at times a scene in an episode like "The Looney Beginning" or "High Toon" the animation came out and looked very bad and it would have to be sent back to Kennedy to be re-animated (and in some cases would be sent to another studio instead, usually Wang Film Productions and/or Startoons). The design of the characters were caused to lead to so much trouble that Warner fired Kennedy Cartoons from the series after the first season was completed, after which the studio went to work on animation for many Disney Afternoon animated shows. .
