TMS Entertainment, Ltd. (株式会社トムス エンタテインメント Kabushiki-gaisha Tomusu Entateinmento?), formerly known as Tokyo Movie Shinsha (東京ムービー新社 Tōkyō Mūbī Shinsha?) (TYO: 3585 And also known as Tokyo Movie or TMS-Kyokuchi, a subsidiary of Sega Sammy since 2005), is a Japanese animation studio, founded on October 1946. One of the oldest and most prominent anime studios in Japan, it has also produced numerous animated series airing in other countries such as France, the United States, and Italy. The company currently uses "TMS Entertainment, Ltd." as its corporate name, however the animation studio itself is referred to as Tokyo Movie (東京ムービー Tōkyō Mūbī?). The company also has a fully-owned subsidiary, Telecom Animation Film, which often co-animates shows with TMS. The company is most notable by American animation fans for its higher quality of work than competing overseas animation houses - often direct comparisons can be made between episodes of the same animated series - as in productions like Tiny Toon Adventures.
