• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Amblimation 7096.jpg

Amblimation was the animation production arm of Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, and it was active from 1991 until about 1997. Spielberg created the animation studio after parting ways with Don Bluth. One could almost say it was responsible for the animation in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, though the film was produced before the studio officially became an independent production arm of Amblin. While unfortunately none of the films released did exceptionally well at the box office, they were all very lavishly animated, even when compared to what Disney was putting out at the time.

The company's Mascot was Fievel Mousekewitz from the An American Tail series, who appears in its production logo. Given that he's both a mouse, the main character of Spielberg's first entrance into animation and a character that had some personal relevance to Spielberg (being named after his grandfather), it's not hard to see why Fievel was chosen.

The feature animation studio was located in London, England, UK. In 1997, the London studio was shut down and some of the Amblimation staff moved on to Dreamworks Animation. After the London studio was shut down, all references with Amblimation became Amblin Entertainment. Today Dreamworks Animation is somewhat of a spiritual successor to Amblimation (it's more obvious in Dreamworks' early 2D animated films), and has had far more success.

animated created by Amblimation include:
