WildBrain Studios (formerly DHX Studios) is a Vancouver-based studio and a division of WildBrain that produces animated and live-action series.


In January 2016, DHX Media announced that they would be building a 60,000 square-foot studio in Vancouver that would focus on both animated and live-action productions.[2][3] The former Studio B Productions (which DHX Media acquired in 2007) and Nerd Corps Entertainment (acquired in 2014) production teams were relocated to the new building later in the year.[2][3]

The studio consists of two production teams: the former Nerd Corps team, which focuses on the production of CGI animated shows, and the former Studio B team, which focuses on the production of 2D animated shows (including those animated with Adobe Animate).

As of 2019, the Vancouver studio is the only one remaining in the division, as the other studios were either sold off or closed.

Island of Misfits was originally known as the Halifax Film Company and was established by former Salter Street Films executives Michael Donovan and Charles Bishop in May 2004.[13] Under the name, Halifax Film produced live-action television shows, children's stop-motion series, CGI productions and dramas.

On May 16, 2006, Halifax Film and Decode Entertainment announced that they would merge to form the holding company DHX Media.[14] Halifax Film became a subsidiary of DHX Media in the process. In 2010 all DHX Media subsidiaries including Halifax Film were all merged to form one brand under the DHX Media name.

In 2014, the studio relocated from a location at Purdy's Wharf to the Park Lane Mall.[15] As of 2019, with the exception of This Hour Has 22 Minutes, DHX Studios Halifax solely produces CGI-animated material.

In November 2018, as part of a series of restructurations within the company, DHX sold its Halifax animation studio to IoM Media Ventures, a company led by former DHX CEO Dana Landry.[16][17] Despite the sale, the studio continues to provide animation for WildBrain-owned shows.

DHX Media Toronto was founded in 1997 and originally known as Decode Entertainment, Inc. by Steven DeNure, Neil Court, and John Delmage. The company produced numerous television shows and was an international supplier of television and interactive programming for children and youth. Decode Entertainment focused on traditional animation, computer-generated animation, and live-action shows. The name "Decode" is an acronym of the combination of the names DeNure, Court, and Delmage.

On May 16, 2006, Decode Entertainment and Halifax Film announced that they would merge with to form the holding company DHX Media.[14] Decode Entertainment became a subsidiary of DHX Media in the process, distributing Halifax Film shows and other DHX properties. In 2010 all DHX Media subsidiaries including Decode Entertainment were rebranded under the DHX Media name.

By 2011, DHX Media ceased production on producing content at the ex-Decode offices. The company known as Epitome Pictures, which DHX acquired in 2014, assumed the name of DHX Studios Toronto in 2016, but it has no relation outside the name.
