We visited TMS animation studio.
Things that they did (that I know): Moomin, Akira, Little Nemo, Animaniacs, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Gummi Bears, DuckTales, Heathcliff, The Littles, the Real Ghostbusters, TMNT, Wuzzles, etc.) That's like half of my childhood there (the other half was Nickelodeon).
Animator at work:

Just around the corner: Gainax!
