This Independent Study is meant to be a comprehensive analysis of three major animation studios and their works in the 20th century, matched with an analysis of their overlying effects in international markets. I have chosen to study Disney, Warner Bros. and MGM instead of all of the known Hollywood animation studios, as these three studios have the largest effects on history. I analyze different films and directors to build a complex interlinking narrative that shows how icons in cultures are created and what their effects are on the world by looking at foreign animation.
