Kennedy Cartoons was an animation studio based in Toronto and Manila led by Glen Kennedy, who formerly worked as an animation supervisor for Hanna-Barbera and Filmation during the 1980s. His animation can be seen in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and Jetsons: The Movie among others. Dan Lee, another Kennedy Cartoons animator, went on to Pixar before his death in 2005. In its Tiny Toons and Darkwing Duck days the studio outsourced some scenes of animation to StarToons, located in Chicago. Prior to opening the Manila division in 1992, Kennedy Cartoons typically had their ink-and-paint/camera work done by Fil-Cartoons, Bon Art and Wang Film Productions. Tiny Toons also gained Kennedy an Emmy Award and a Primetime Emmy nomination. The studio provided animation for the following cartoons:
