Video Brinquedo was a Brazilian animation studio, located in São Paulo, Brazil, that produced direct-to-video animated films widely viewed as mockbusters of comparable films from Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar Animation Studios, DreamWorks Animation, 20th Century Fox, Blue Sky Studios, Hasbro Studios and Sony Pictures Animation. The company was founded in 1994 to distribute children's animation with the intention of distribution in its home market of Brazil, as well as to other global markets. The company was active from 1994 (2006 as Video Brinquedo) until 2012.
Each of the films were heavily panned by critics and audiences alike (including Strider himself) due to its excessively lazy and ugly CGI animation, and for its extremely poor lip-dubbing. Each of the films on IMDB have extremely low scores (often below 2/10 stars), and its excruciatingly bad reviews fortunately led to its bankruptcy in 2012.
