The Happy Planet series were produced by Montreal-based animation company EnSky Studios, notable for the Smart Planet series and was the company's first production to use a new Alias Wavefront Maya animation software. Rendering was done with Mental Ray, while compositing work was completed in Adobe Premiere and Media Composer. Most backgrounds were modeled in 3D, with geometry sculpted with Discreet 3ds Max and texturing done with Adobe Photoshop; one method of replicating the source material's visual style was through black edging 3D objects with Toon Shader. There were also 2D animated backgrounds and visual effects created with Adobe After Effects and Avid DS. The characters are animated in high quality 3D, while objects in the backgrounds are black edged to give them a 2D cartoon feel.
