Using animators on my products

I am opening a business making swimming tools for kids and I want to use some of the Hollywood animation characters on my products. Should I have the company's consent?

It as a complicated issue and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Some characters are public because of the passage of time, and they got a lot of air on TV, so they can be used by everyone. However, using fan arts, which are private and are not transformative enough to be considered creative, would fall under copyright infringement. You need to talk with a lawyer to a copyright find which product can be regarded as public or private.
