20th Television Animation (formerly Fox Television Animation) is an American animation studio that creates, develops and produces animated television series and specials. It is a unit of Disney Television Studios, a subsidiary of Walt Disney Television, which is part of the Disney General Entertainment Content division of The Walt Disney Company.

History

20th Century Fox Television and 20th Television animation unit (1989–20)

The studio was established in 1988. Its first project was The Simpsons, followed by Little Mammoth. The studio would become the home of future animated series, such as Futurama, The Adventures of Cynthia, American Dad!Best Friends Forever, The Cleveland Show, Bob's Burgers, Sorceria and Evil Girlz, including animated series co-created by Seth MacFarlane: Family Guy, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show.

Most animated projects from 20th Television Animation are subcontracted to third party animation production companies such as Film RomanTitmouse, Inc.Bento Box Entertainment and Rough Draft Studios, but the company maintains 20th Television Animation as an in-house option. Because the company acts as a production house for hire, it is not treated as a labeled division of 20th Century Studios like Touchstone Television or Searchlight Pictures. The studio specializes in animation pre-production and post-production, while the actual animation production is handled by studios in South Korea. 20th Television Animation's frequent contractors include Digital eMationYearim ProductionsAKOM Production, and Rough Draft Korea.

The studio maintains a location in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of Los Angeles Its workers are represented by The Animation Guild, I.A.T.S.E. Local 839.

Under Disney Television Studios (2020–present)

In September 2020, the animation company was renamed as 20th Television Animation starting with newer episodes of shows in production at the company. The company's new logo debuted on late episodes of first season of RandomToons: Tooning In!, which start appeared in later series, such as The Adventures of Cynthia and The Simpsons.

In December 2020, it was announced that 20th Television Animation would be relaunched as a standalone unit from 20th Television, tentatively naming Marci Proietto as president of the company. It eventually went into effect in February 2021 with the on-screen logo for the company first appearing after the credits for the season 2 premiere of RandomToons: Tooning In!, the season 7 premiere of Bitworld and the season 19 premiere of The Adventures of Cynthia. Unlike its kid-targeted sister studio Disney Television Animation, 20th Television Animation focus on producing and developing animated projects targeted at kids and adults. Under the new incarnation, 20th Television Animation would assume executive supervision of the production of all animated projects that had, up to that point, been overseen by 20th Television. This allowed series that 20th Television Animation was already producing animation for under 20th Television's watch to be brought entirely under one company, while series whose animation was produced by a third party company would retain that relationship, with 20th Television Animation only absorbing the above-the-line production and acting as the new client for the animation contractor.
