  Shrek 2 is top cartoon in US ever
Updated 15 June 2004, 18.35
Scene from Shrek I
Shrek 2 might be about a big smelly green ogre, but that hasn't stopped it taking more money than any animated film ever in the US and Canada.

It has beaten the previous title-holder, 2003's Finding Nemo, to earn a whopping 194 million in ticket sales since it opened in May.

Shrek 2 is now the ninth biggest box office hit in North America ever, ahead of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

The film, starring Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers, opens in the UK on 2 July.

The film was screened in America in 4,163 cinemas, making it the largest debut of all time.

The first Shrek movie made 151 million at the US box office and 258 million worldwide.
