Atkinson Film-Arts was an animation studio based in Ottawa, Ontario. The company is best known for the first two Care Bears television specials, The Land Without Feelings and The Freeze Machine, and the four syndicated specials that inspired The Raccoons (as well as first season episodes of the show itself). Atkinson also produced the 1978 Christmas special The Little Brown Burro and the 1987-88 series The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin (with DIC Enterprises and LBS Communications).   
In 1987, the company was renamed Crawleys Animation. It produced the special The Nightingale (with Shanghai Animation Film Studio) and 13 episodes of Dennis the Menace along with 11 episodes of C.O.P.S. for DIC, and worked with French studio Belokapi on a series Ys the Magnificent (which was cancelled during production and never broadcast), before shutting down in 1989.
Because of debt problems, Atkinson Film-Arts was officially shut down in 1989.
