Nickelodeon Animation Studio, formerly known as Games Animation, is an American animation studio. The studio is owned and operated by television network Nickelodeon. The studio produces many animated series, including SpongeBob SquarePants. Writing, directing, storyboarding, and voice acting duties are handled at the studio, while the animation for SpongeBob is completed by Rough Draft Korea.

The studio is featured in many behind-the-scenes shorts included on SpongeBob DVDs. It has made occasional appearances in the episodes themselves, usually as part of a brief gag. "Truth or Square" features the studio as a major setting.

Trivia

  • "Mooncation" is the only regular-length episode that the studio appears in.
  • While the pilot was being made in 1997, the studio's name was still Games Animation. It did not change to Nickelodeon Animation Studio until 1998.
  • Nickelodeon's logo in the 1990s was used on over a hundred different shapes, and for some of the studio's appearances on SpongeBob, the Nickelodeon logo is in the shape of a cartoon a foot. Since the late-2009 logo rebrand, it has been the standard Nickelodeon logo without a shape around it.
  • The studio's new appearance was finished on January 12, 2017.
