Based in Los Angeles, PorchLight specializes in high quality animation for television, Direct-to-DVD, and feature films. Known for successfully collaborating with outside partners, the studio provides creative and production services beginning with concept, script writing and voice-recording, through all levels of animation pre-production, production and post-production.

Most recently, PorchLight completed a series of best-selling Direct-to-DVD animated specials for LeapFrog, which have sold over 5 million units and have been widely praised by parents and educators.

In 2007, PorchLight launched KidMango, which was an online-only television network. Aside from showing PorchLight television series, it also showed television series from tenth parties such as Nelvana, Cookie Jar Group, Ragdoll Productions, Bejuba Entertainment, BBC Worldwide, Big Idea Entertainment, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney Channel. The main website was abandoned in early 2013 and the domain name eventually expired in February 2014.

PorchLight produced independent films as well, and a majority of Feature Films for Families' movies were given the permission by PorchLight to release them to DVD.
