Key people: Glen Kennedy


Kennedy Cartoons was an animation studio based in Toronto, Canada founded in 1989 and led by Glen Kennedy, who formerly worked as an animation supervisor for Hanna-Barbera and Filmation during the 1980s.

Bad Qualities

Note: Please don't change the headings to "Why It Sucks" and "Redeeming Qualities", as there are some people who enjoy the studio's animation.

  1. Their repetitive "Kennedy Kick Dance" was very notable in their shows they worked for like Tiny Toon Adventures, Goof Troop and Darkwing Duck are examples of this.
  2. Their animation and characters designs were inconsistent and all over-the-place.
  3. The studio had a tendency to the characters animated by them declaring their fingers when they speak, to the point as if they were giving an announcement rather than having a normal conversation.
  4. They animated characters as bouncy and stretchy, mouths that were frequently in the "o" position, shuffling feet, stretching them to ridiculous lengths and doing the same repeated gags (the Kennedy Kick Dance and declaring their fingers, as mentioned before)
  5. Their animation were very off-model, mainly in Tiny Toons, causing them to be fired from Warner Bros. after the first season.

Good Qualities

  1. Although their animation, especially in Tiny Toon Adventures, are inconsistent, they can be fluid at best ironically.
  2. Jin Kim's (who would later work at Disney) work at Aladdin helped him to improve his animation skills.
  3. There are some great animators such as Jon McClenahan (who would later found StarToons), some good animators such as John Williamson and Jin Kim and decent animators, such as Glen Kennedy himself.

Reception

Due of their horrible animation in Tiny Toon Adventures, Warner Bros. fired them from Tiny Toons, due of Warner themselves disliked their animation in the show in Season 1.

Trivia

  • The Kennedy Kick Dance was referenced in the ending of the episode "Let's Watch the Pilot" of the first season of OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes.

I honestly don’t mind Kennedy Cartoons, sure they’re not TMS, but I still kind of like their cartoony animation.
