The studio, started in 1990 at Disney MovieToons making direct-to-video sequels to successful Disney big screen movies, found moderate success in the 2000’s as DisneyToon Studios with a few of its own feature films. DisneyToon movies tended to be significantly lower budget than their Disney Animation and Pixar counterparts. Some of their most noteworthy releases were A Goofy MoviePlanes and The Tigger Movie.
