TV Production work is (mostly) done somewhere else. The listed television shows are for pre-production (scripts, design work, storyboards, animatics).

Disney animated features are largely produced in Burbank-Glendale-L.A., while DreamWorks Animation (feature) outsources some work overseas … but it continues to do a big chunk of production in Glendale.
