Amblimation was the animation production arm of Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment. It only made three films that include "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West" (1991), "We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story" (1993) and "Balto" (1995), which were all distributed by Universal Pictures. The studio was shut down in 1997 and some of the Amblimation staff went on to join DreamWorks Animation, which was later acquired in 2016, by Universal's parent company NBCUniversal for $3.8 billion, making it Universal's third animation unit following Universal Animation Studios and Illumination. The company's mascot, Fievel Mousekewitz ("An American Tail"), appears in its production logo. A project to adapt the 1981 Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Cats" was in the making, but was abandoned with the studio's closure.
