Spectrum Animation Co. was a Japanese animation studio, one of many to work on Batman: The Animated Series. It was generally considered one of the best studios to work on the series. On the commentary track for Heart of Ice on the Batman: The Animated Series, Volume One (DVD), Bruce Timm stated that Spectrum was responsible for airbrushing Mr. Freeze's helmet in every frame that featured him. Such attention to detail ultimately drove the studio to bankruptcy. They did, however, do the layout work for a number of Dong Yang episodes. Spectrum consisted of former TMS employees who had broken away to start their own company. For a short time, Spectrum animation director Suzuki supervised an animation unit at Koko/Dong Yang, with some former TMS animators on his staff. They worked on a handful of episodes of the later DCAU.
