Hong Ying is a Chinese animation studio. It was founded in 1986, starting off as a subcontractor of Wang Film Productions. After working on a few of Wang's shows, they gained an identity of their own, working on a number of cartoons, especially those from Di C.
They are pretty much best known for providing animation for some very trippy shows. That's not to say that's all they do. When they aren't doing weird stuff, they're doing animation for some more realistic shows.

Tropes found in Hong Ying's work
- Animation Bump: Chowder, although the extreme Medium Blending in that show may help.
- Deranged Animation: Quite a bit of it comes from here. It and Saerom are possibly the kings of this trope.
- Off-Model: Most of their work on Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
