Williams Street is a production company that is currently owned by the Warner Bros. Television Studios division of Warner Bros., a unit of Warner Bros. Discovery. It was formerly by Turner Broadcasting System. Williams Street was formerly known as Ghost Planet Industries after Space Ghost's show in 1994-1999. The name was changed to Williams Street possibly because they wanted to focus more on the other shows, not just Space Ghost Coast to Coast. All of Adult Swim is produced by Williams Street. Keith Crofford oversees operations for the studio building, which also houses the Cartoon Network offices. Mike Lazzo oversaw operations for the studio alongside Crofford until 2019, when Lazzo retired from the company and Crofford exited the following year, while he was succeeded by Suzanna Makkos in 2021.

The name of the company is mainly named after the street that it lies on which is Williams Street in Atlanta, Georgia. This company is in the same building of Ted Turner who founded TBS, CNN and Cartoon Network.

The building in the logo is an artistic version of the studio it started in. The building in real life is just a little different then the logo on television. For example, the building says TBS on the front, the building is much longer and it is more elevated in the center. The companies' building is right across the street from TBS headquarters.

The audio in the background of the logo is created by Jack Webb's production company Mark VII Limited.

The Williams Street logo is shown for about five seconds and old shows are occasionally followed by a vanity card of a skull and crossbones with the old Cartoon Network symbol on the mouth, which was ended in 2004. The symbol was not used until after Ghost Planet Industries.
