PorchLight Entertainment, Inc. is an American production company founded in 1995 by Bruce D. Johnson and William T. Baumann. It is focused on development & production of television series in both live action and animation. It specializes in producing innovative, high quality animation for television, film and home video. From the high quality animation of Emmy Award winning "Tutenstein," to the classic storytelling of "[[Adventures From The Book of Virtues]," and the high-tech whimsy of "Jay Jay the Jet Plane," PorchLight has produced programming that informs as well as entertains.

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.

In 2011 Peter Bergmann, a seasoned network executive joined the Company as CEO. 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 shows television series from third party producers such as Nelvana, Cookie Jar Group, Ragdoll Productions, Bejuba Entertainment, BBC Worldwide, Big Idea Entertainment, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney Channel. The web site prides itself in delivering "kid friendly" content which provides peace of mind for parents.

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.
