Hello. I am Animated Kid, or as others would know me as Jayden-G. I have decided to create a blog just to try something, and I really want to share my opinoins on things related to animated films, animated characters, etc. I just want to say that I do not own any pictures, unless I state otherwise, and this blog is for entertainment purposes only. I have wanted to do this for MANY months, and I decided to not procrastinate from now on. I have chosen to do something that a lot of people would not do; review the entire DreamWorks Animation canon. I am pretty sure you are asking. Why DreamWorks, and not Pixar or Walt Disney Aniamtion Studios? I just decided to do this to not only challenge myself (I am not a big fan of the company), but I want to start my blog debut and to do a different company like DreamWorks Animation. I would like to give out props to bloggers like Unshaved Mouse, The Animation Commendation, and Kenzie for inspiring me to do this, and for originating the idea. DreamWorks Animation is known for it’s debatably funny humor, pop-culture references, non Dinsey-like characters, and pumping out films like they are in a high-demand factory (high-demand to kids, not so much for older folks). Point is, this company is and has been Disney’s biggest competition since the late 1990s, and offered something new to the table. I will be going through these films:
- The Prince of Egypt
- The Road to El Dorado
- Chicken Run
- Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
- Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas
- Shrek 2
- Shark Tale
- Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
- Over the Hedge
- Flushed Away
- Shrek the Third
- Bee Movie
- Kung Fu Panda
- Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
- Monsters vs. Aliens
- How to Train Your Dragon
- Shrek Forever After
- Kung Fu Panda 2
- Puss in Boots
- Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted
- Rise of the Guardians
- The Croods
- Mr. Peaboy & Sherman (If it is released by the time the others are reviewed)
Their films may be generic, and not the most timeless, but under the mediocrity, there are some true gems. Follow me in the journey of DreamWorks Animation (hopefully I do not get too frustrated going through their canon)

Glad to see that you have a blog now, Jayden 🙂 !
Great idea on your Dreamworks Animation Canon reviews! I was thinking of doing this some time as well, but I haven’t watched “The Prince of Egypt” for religious reasons and didn’t think it’d be right to skip a movie when reviewing the entire Canon.
But, I’m sooo looking forward to your reviews!
Thank you for your support. I am still nervous about having a blog though. I already got a good amount of my Antz review completed. It should be up by Friday.
No need to be nervous as long as you’re having fun making it 🙂 !
Go on creating value for us.
