The studio was founded in March 1999 by Trevor Bentley, Mauro Casalese, Olaf Miller and Rob Davies.[5] Sent back to Vancouver after losing his job at Warner Bros. Animation following the cancellation of Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain, Davies received a phone call from Sunwoo Entertainment‘s Jae Moh to help produce Milo’s Bug Quest [ko]. Together with former Studio B Productions colleagues Miller and Bentley, as well as animator/character designer Casalese, the four launched Atomic Cartoons to assist in creating the series.[2]

Between 2004 and 2008, the company produced Atomic Betty for Teletoon in association with Breakthrough Entertainment and Tele Images Kids. Atomic’s first fully original creation, the show’s titular heroine served as the studio’s mascot for a number of years.

In 2010, Miller left to launch his own studio. The following year, Jennifer McCarron was appointed head of production.[6] On July 8, 2015, Atomic Cartoons was acquired by Canadian production company Thunderbird Films.[4] The three founders remain on board. McCarron was named president and chief executive officer in 2016.[7]

In December 2018, the company opened a second animation studio in Ottawa, Ontario.[8] Its first project is the Netflix-original The Last Kids on Earth. By June 2020, the Ottawa location is expected to have 130-150 employees.[9]

In February 2020, Atomic Cartoons opened its third studio in Los Angeles, California.[10]
