Some of the biggest companies in the real world can’t compare with those created in our favorite fictional universes. In the land of make-believe, companies become much more than just simple money makers. They can innovate beyond belief, save (or destroy) the planet, or just accidentally cause insane amounts of chaos. The companies on our list are both big and small, wealthy and poor. Some are inherently good, others are pure evil, but most are somewhere in the grey area in the middle.
Here are the 26 most iconic (or at least most entertaining) fictional companies from TV and film. Enjoy!
26. Acme Corp.
Although Acme Corp. has been used by multiple cartoons, movies, or TV shows, it’s probably most well known for being an integral part of the Loony Tunes universe — especially in the animated shorts featuring the speedy Road Runner and the conniving Wile E. Coyote. As the poor coyote attempts to catch himself some dinner, he often uses Acme products to help his cause.
Acme itself appears to be a huge conglomerate, making everything from simple anvils to giant weaponized rockets. Unfortunately, a lot of the products don’t seem to work as intended or promised and end up backfiring on Wile E. Coyote. Or maybe it’s just a lot of user error. The company also appeared in Tiny Toons and Animaniacs.
