Renegade Animation is an animation studio, located in Glendale, California, which currently specializes in Macromedia Flash/Toon Boom animation. It was founded by former Disney and Warner Bros. animator and director Darrell Van Citters and his business partner Ashley Postelwaite in July 1992 in Burbank, California.
Initially they produced mostly commercial work, beginning with the second "Hare Jordan" spot for Nike, which featured Bugs Bunny as his own alter-ego and Michael Jordan as Air Jordan, as well as numerous spots for Cheetos, Kellogg's Honey Smacks, and Kellogg's Rice Krispies. In the mid-'90s, they moved into internet cartoons, and produced Will Ryan's "Elmo Aardvark: Outer Space Detective".
They have since branched out into television, and are perhaps most well known as the producers of cartoon series Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi and The Mr. Men Show for Cartoon Network. The Tom and Jerry Show, a show featuring Tom and Jerry, that is currently airing on Cartoon Network. They also co-produced the live-action/Traditionally-animated telefilm Re-Animated with the Cartoon Network Studios. Renegade also produced the 2007 direct-to-video Christmas film Christmas Is Here Again based on a story by Robert Zappia, which has since aired in syndication and on Hulu.
They produced the animation for an animated short A Dairy Tale: The Three Little Pigs, which was released specially on the DVD for 2004 Disney film Home on the Range and the animated sequence for Book of Dragons, which was released on DVD.
