Slap Happy Cartoons


SLAP HAPPY'S studio features a state-of-the-art infrastructure and is home to some of Canada's top producers, directors, writers, designers, storyboard artists, animators and editors.

We know animation.

For over a decade, Slap Happy Cartoons has proudly delivered the highest calibre of animation to the global stage. As one of the longest-running independent studios in Canada, we pride ourselves on being artist-owned and operated.

Our studio is built on a rock-solid foundation, boasting 125 years of collective animation expertise among its partners.

Prior to opening our doors, the Slap Happy owners honed their skills through the 90s and early 2000s, a time now considered by many to be the animation renaissance period. Fast forward to today where we’ve married that invaluable industry experience to the best talent in the business, building a studio that really knows how to make a cartoon.


By combining decades of tried-and-true animation fundamentals with youthful enthusiasm, fresh ideas, and the latest technology, Slap Happy Cartoons delivers a great product, on time and on budget, every time. From script to screen, we always put creativity first. It’s in our nature.

Past and present clients and partners include Corus Entertainment, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Canucks Sports & Entertainment, Knowledge Kids Network, Renegade Animation, 9 Story Media Group, Warner Bros. Animation, Andrews McMeel Entertainment, Nickelodeon Animation, and Netflix, to name but a few.
