The Burbank area was long a favorite for movie makers. Close to the services in Hollywood and plenty of open spaces for shooting cowboy westerns. It was only natural that actual studios would follow. Now, as then, Burbank encourages the film companies.
Today, in addition to major studios, Burbank and Glendale host several smaller studios and production facilities. These include The Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Dreamworks, Quixote, Studio Production Studios, and many others. Burbank takes no backseat to Hollywood in the entertainment industry.
