Computeropolis is a computer animated comedy film series and media franchise produced by Gingo Animation and released by Universal Pictures. It features the adventures of Peri Dazz (voiced by Jesse McCartney), an intelligent and kind-hearted teenage boy, who is sucked into the eponymous fantasy and metropolis internet city from his computer, where he meets his character Nicky Kickzoo (voiced by David Spade), the star of Peri's computer game Frenzy. The duo unexpectedly embark on adventures that challenge and change them.

The franchise began with the 2004 film Computeropolis and its 2007 and 2010 sequels Computeropolis 2 and Computeropolis 3, respectively. A prequel featuring the DCL, titled DCL: Desktop Component League, was released in 2016. A fourth film, Computeropolis: The Deep Web, is scheduled for release on July 18, 2018. It also includes a simulator ride attraction, Computeropolis: A Technical Ride, at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood, and a television series for Cartoon Network titled Computeropolis: Adventures of Peri and Nicky, which premiered in the summer of 2008.

The franchise has been highly acclaimed with its first two features being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, in addition to the first film's nomination for the Academy Award for Best Original Score. The series has now grossed over $1.8 billion, making it the 24th highest-grossing franchise of all time, the fourth highest-grossing animated franchise (behind Shrek, Despicable Me, and Ice Age), and the highest-grossing Gingo Animation franchise.
