Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Animation (or MGM Animation for short) is the animation division of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) motion picture studio in Hollywood, California, United States, that specializes in animated productions for theatrical features and television. Established in 1993 as successor to the original Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer cartoon studio and the later MGM Animation/Visual Arts from the 1960s, the company is primarily involved in producing children's entertainment based upon properties owned by MGM, such as The Pink Panther, The Lionhearts, The Secret of NIMH, and All Dogs Go to Heaven. Unlike the original Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer cartoon studio and the later MGM Animation/Visual Arts from the 1960s, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Animation is owned by MGM Holdings, since 2003, the studio is dormant.
