Jay Ward Productions (1948−2002), or simply Ward Productions, is an American animated television cartoon series production company in Los Angeles County, California.

It was founded in 1948 by American animator Jay Ward. It made extensive use of limited animation techniques.

History

The company was based on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, across Sunset Boulevard from the Chateau Marmont hotel.

Jay Ward Productions was an independent studio from 1948 to 1959. It was part of Dancer Fitzgerald Sample (1959-1979), which originally brokered advertising for, and through its Gamma Productions subsidiary, animated Ward's productions. The Program Exchange acquired broadcast rights in 1979. Classic Media (DreamWorks Classics), owned by DreamWorks Animation SKG, acquired the production company's catalog in 2002.

Jay Ward Productions today

The successor Jay Ward Production Inc., managed by members of his family, is based in Costa Mesa, California.

The present day Bullwinkle Studios LLC is a joint venture of Jay Ward Production Inc. and DreamWorks Classics, which is a subsidiary of DreamWorks Animation SKG and currently represents the catalog. North American television broadcast rights for Rocky and Bullwinkle are handled by The Program Exchange, the corporate successor to Dancer Fitzgerald Sample.
