Welcome to WikiProject Animation, a project formed by Wikipedians to increase, expand, improve, and better organize articles related to Animation. This page and its subpages contain our suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in this field. Some project goals are to help list and categorize animation related articles, develop quality standards for articles and build templates that help users browse the articles that fall under this project.

If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there. The scope of WikiProject Animation also provides a place for Wikipedians to share information and resources regarding improvements to all animation-related articles. Here, editors can ask for help with certain articles and bring otherwise overlooked articles and problems, to the attention of other editors. If you are interested in joining the WikiProject, please feel free to add your name to the Participants list below, and find yourself an article to adopt.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.


This WikiProject aims to provide a centralized home for work done on Wikipedia articles about animation, including animation studios, animators, animation directors, animated series, animated films, animated characters, as well as animation techniques and so on. However, we acknowledge and are grateful for the work of other projects in the field, and will reserve the majority of our attention to that content which does not fall within the scope of other active projects.


The project aims primarily to:

  1. Create, improve, and maintain Wikipedia's coverage of animation
  2. Standardize coverage of animation
  3. Create a standard for the interpretation of copyright and fair use as it applies to the animated television series and films
  4. Implement infoboxes for individual animated television series and films
  5. Make decisions about individual animated shorts/episodes
  6. Maintain the portal
