DNA Productions, Inc. was an American animation studio located in Dallas, Texas, which workes on both computer-generated 2D and 3D animated projects. It also provides directing, script writing, and production to its clients.

DNA's most notable projects include the Oscar nominated, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius feature film for Paramount and Nickelodeon, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius television series, the Emmy nominated holiday special, Olive, the Other Reindeer for The Curiosity Company and Fox, the CGI Christmas special, Santa vs. the Snowmen for O Entertainment and the animated feature film adaptation of the children's book, The Ant Bully for Playtone and Warner Bros.. The company's mascot is Paul, a Three Eyed monkey. DNA's former mascot was Helix, the cat. The company closed its animation facility in 2006, shortly after the release of The Ant Bully, but then was reinstated in 2012.


DNA Productions was founded in 1987. The company's original mascot was Helix The Cat, a purple cat. However, after producing the Jimmy Neutron feature film for Nickelodeon, John A. Davis was about to go to Japan for a vacation. Shortly before leaving, he decided to change the company's mascot. The staff eventually settled on Paul, a three-eyed monkey. By the time John came back, they had the logo ready. John loved what they came up with and the company made several more logos before Jimmy Neutron ended.
