Bardel Entertainment, Inc. is an Canadian animation studio founded in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1987. The word "Bardel" comes from the names of its founders, Barry Ward and Delna Bhesania, who are a married couple. It is involved in the acquisition, development, production and distribution of animated programming.
Among its more recent animation projects are the Viva Piñata television series, Mack & Moxy, Chaotic, Edgar & Ellen, and Mucha Lucha. Other Bardel projects include a thirteen-part series based on Silverwing and two direct-to-video films based on Mega Bloks Dragons. Another Bardel-produced show, Zeke's Pad, which has been broadcast in countries such as Australia and Germany, made its Canadian premiere on YTV on January 9, 2010.
Bardel has more than 300 employees, and 4 buildings in Vancouver. The entertainment company has done animation for many organizations such as the Fox Broadcasting Company, DreamWorks, Warner Bros., Nickelodeon, Disney, and Cartoon Network.
