The Kushner-Locke Company was an American independent motion picture/television production founded in March 12, 1983 by Donald Kushner and Peter Locke.[1]

It is known for films such as The Adventures of Pinocchio, Liberace: Behind the Music, Basil, But I'm a Cheerleader, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Freeway, Nutcracker: The Motion Picture and Teen Wolf. Kushner-Locke also produces animated films such as The Brave Little Toaster series and Pound Puppies and the Legend of Big Paw.

In 2001, Kushner-Locke filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and has operated under this stature since then.[2] In November of that same year, Artisan Entertainment (now owned by Lions Gate Entertainment) acquired the North American sales rights to its more than 300 titles.[3]
