It all started in 1977 with Spike & Mike’s Festival of Animation and later the popular and infamous Spike & Mike’s Sick & Twisted. What Spike & Mike have accomplished is quite remarkable, if you really think about it. Creating a whole COTTAGE INDUSTRY producing, promoting & distributing their own theatrical as well as their own funding, marketing, 35mm lab conversion, producing many of their own shorts, creating yearly sequels that are as good or better than the previous year all without a publicist.

US theatrical premiers that include Wallace & Gromit, Beavis & Butthead, the first films of Andrew Stanton, John Lasseter, Pixar, Bill Plympton, Danny Antonucci, Eric Fogel, Breehn Burns, Tim Burton, Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Chris Wedge, Kenn Navarro, Marv Newland, Mike Johnson & Nick Park.
