Nickelodeon Animation Studio is an American animation studio. The studio is owned and operated by television network Nickelodeon. The studio produces many of the network's most popular animated series, like SpongeBob SquarePants and others. It also produces programs for Nicktoons as well. Nickelodeon changed the logos to match their new logo on the front in 2010.
On May 8, 2015, it was revealed that the studios were expanding. Nickelodeon bought out a United Rentals lot, tore down their building, and built a new animation building. Construction started in June 2015. The building was finished in 2016.
"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, since 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.
