CinéGroupe is an animation studio founded in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in 1974. The company also has offices in nearby Toronto and in the American city of Los Angeles. Their shows and films have been seen in over 125 countries. [1]

Notable franchises from CinéGroupe include The Kids from Room 402 (shown on the former Fox Family banner, now ABC Family); the computer-animated Tripping the Rift (on the Sci-Fi Channel); and PBS' Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat. With Sony Wonder, it has produced Mega Babies (also shown on Fox Family), as well as a direct-to-video feature, Lion of Oz and the Badge of Courage (a prequel to both the famous L. Frank Baum work, and the 1939 movie).

In the area of feature films, it has remade the 1981 cult classic Heavy Metal as a Lion's Gate release, shown on the Starz family of networks from 2001 onwards. In 2004, it made Pinocchio 3000, a sci-fi retelling of the Carlo Collodi tale. Galidor, a live-action fantasy series for teenagers, has also been produced by the company. The company also cooperated with MGA Entertainment in the creation Bratz the Video: Starrin' and Stylin', a 2-D animated direct-to-video movie based on MGA's Bratz line of fashion dolls.

For many of CinéGroupe's animated productions, they often rely on a pre-formed crew of voice actors to do the work. The crew usually consists of Rick Jones, and Terrence Scammell, among others. They are very common actors in CinéGroupe productions, and it is unknown why.

For the home video releases, in 2002, the company united with Star Records to create a home video distributor called CinéGroupe/Star. The partnership was ended in January 2004.
