Founded in 1972, [sic] the [Nelvana] company earned an international reputation in 1984, after American director George Lucas—best known for the Star Wars movie series—hired the studio to create two animated TV spin-off series, Ewoks and Droids. A year later, Ohio's American Greetings Corp. and Kenner Parker Toys Inc. commissioned Nelvana to produce the animated Care Bears Movie. Earning $34 million in 1985, it became at the time the world's most profitable non-Disney animated movie. Buoyed by that success, Nelvana made two sequels. But the last of the trilogy, the 1987 Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland, which Nelvana produced for just under $5 million, only broke even. Conceded Hirsh: 'It was just one [sequel] too many.'
