Dreamworks Animation (Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon) just bought out Classic Media for $155 million and have now called the company Dreamworks Classic. So what did Classic Media do or have that calls for such a grand number? Well glad you asked, Classic Media was a animation/production/distribution company that had collected the rights to a lot of old kid properties. Now that Dreamworks bought them out they now have the rights (not all of them complete) to the following...(takes deep breath)
