Glass Ball Productions (also known as Glass Ball Animation or Glass Ball Studios, commonly referred to as Glass Ball) is an American live-action/animation studio established in 1993 and based in Burbank, California. A division label of Gingo Entertainment, the studio produces live-action as well as animated films and television shows targeted to adult audiences and is best known for the animated series TeenV. As of 2005, the studio is also the in-house production arm of NightHouse, the adult programming block on Gingo TV. In a similar manner to its sister company Gingo Animation, Glass Ball is primarily associated with 20th Century Fox, but also with some other studios such as Columbia Pictures.

Edit

The Glass Ball Productions logo depicts a large glass ball being shattered by a butterfly, followed by a loud cracking sound. The logo was created by Gingo Animation in traditional animation and designed by founder Geo G. Some special versions of the studio's animation were made to fit episodes of shows like TeenV. Often, dialogue from some TeenV episodes can be heard during the animation.

The Glass Ball logo was parodied in the "Rejected Pokémon" segment in an episode of the Cartoon Network animated series MAD, where it features a rejected Pokémon called Glasstar, who is shattered by a butterfly (which resembles the one in the Glass Ball logo), thus echoing the famous Glass Ball logo.
