Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is a British animation studio based in London, England. It is an EMEA off-shoot of Cartoon Network Studios, having been formed in 2007, and went under the names Development Studio Studio Europe and Cartoon Network Studios Europe, until it was rebranded to its current name on April 7, 2021.[1]


It is jointly run by Warner Bros. cartoon overlord Sam Register, president of both Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, and Vanessa Brookman, head of EMEA.[1]

On September 21, 2021, HBO Max and Cartoon Network greenlit Ben Bocquelet's The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie! and Gumball: The Series, spin-offs from The Amazing World of Gumball, which aired from 2011 to 2019.[2] In August 2022, HBO Max dropped the movie, although it is still in production with hopes of being picked up elsewhere.
