Crime Time is an animated short series produced by Future Thoughts Productions. The show is about a criminal named Shifty who perpetrates crimes from the sublime to the ridiculous and never quite pulls them off, resulting in hilarious consequences. It is rendered in a graphic style reminiscent of UPA shorts. Crime Time gives the viewer a brief but comical look at the irony of crime. Taking on the spirit of old-world cartoons, the series uses sight gags and pacing to bring about a comedic scenario.

Produced in a combination of Flash and CGI animation, the creators utilize classic elements of storytelling to give this series a unique personality. The series, which consists of shorts varying in length from 90 to 180 seconds, introduces a comic anti-hero character Shifty (The Criminal), who seems always to be just moments away from successfully beating the system only to have his plans derailed by some unforeseeable circumstance. 121 shorts were made, 106 of which are accessible online.

Few of the lost episodes were also viewed on Amazon, but it is currently unavailable. The series also formerly aired on Astro Ceria on Malaysia,[1] MNCTV on Indonesia,[2] Cartoon Network in India, and Kidz TV in Turkey.

Between December 27th, 2018, and May 20th, 2019, the channel futurethought uploaded 22 episodes of the series (many of which were lost up until then) onto YouTube.
