These are the logo variations seen throughout the years by Cartoon Network Studios, with more to be added overtime.

Third Logo Variants

Time Squad

Buck warns Larry not to press a button. Then, while Otto is watching, Larry presses the button, causing a shock where the logo reverts back to normal. The box in Season 1 was baby blue instead of red and lacked the AOL Time Warner byline, while Season 2 used the regular red box and AOL Time Warner byline.

Samurai Jack (Seasons 1-4)

Jack slices the logo's walls, causing the logo to close. Normally, the box was the regular red and featured the AOL Time Warner byline. However, some episodes used an orange box, the "STUDIOS" part shook, a different sword sound was used and lacked the byline (as AOL Time Warner renamed back to Time Warner at this point).

Grim and Evil and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy

Grim, with a smirk on his face, stands next to Billy and Mandy. He attempts to chop their heads off with his scythe, but fails because they hid in their shirts. Their heads pop out and Billy looks amused while Mandy looks irritated. Grim then gives a confused look. The normal version is set on a black background rather than a white one, and is also bylineless, although a variant exists with the white background and AOL Time Warner byline.

The Flintstones: On the Rocks and Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law (Season 1)

The logo is still. The former special uses it with the AOL Time Warner byline and is silent, while the latter show doesn't use the byline and uses the ending theme.

Dexter's Laboratory (Seasons 3-4)

Dexter stands next to Dee Dee, who slowly presses a button in front of him, causing Dexter to explode. After a flash of light, Dexter appears, scorched and visibly annoyed as a smoke particle drifts out of the logo. The normal version is set on a black background with a neon green box, without the byline. Some late Season 3 episodes use this logo with the regular white background, red box and AOL Time Warner byline respectively. There also exists a filmed variant.

The Powerpuff Girls (Seasons 4-6), The Powerpuff Girls Movie and The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!

The girls, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup each zoom in and beat up Mojo Jojo. Mojo also bumps into the W. This variant first appeared after the credits of The Powerpuff Girls Movie. By Season 6, the byline was switched to "A TimeWarner Company", being the only show to use that variant, alongside Star Wars: Clone Wars. On The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!, the logo is squished.

Star Wars: Clone Wars

On pre-Disney prints, the logo is still on a black background with a Time Warner byline. Seasons 1 and 2 used the "Grungy" font variant, while Season 3 uses the normal version. A Hanna-Barbera sound effect is then heard.

Johnny Bravo (Season 4)

Johnny shows off his poses, then kisses the screen. His lips get stuck in the logo, but he quickly squeezes them out. Beginning with this variant, the logo now uses the design from the standard variant and appears larger on-screen.

Megas XLR

Megas shoots a few laser blasts at the screen, then its guns jam. It taps one of its blasters with a confused look. It accidentally fires at the right side of the logo, and it closes without any damage.


Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

Mac stands on the red box and blinks. Bloo then appears on the right into the box and tackles Mac. They both smile at each other. This variant was also strangely seen on an CN airing of the first Squirrel Boy episode from May 29, 2006.

Evil Con Carne (Season 2)

Major Dr. Ghastly is holding a clicker and General Skarr is on a jet pack. Ghastly presses the button on the clicker and Skarr flies around, crashing into the logo, damaging it. He destroys the left side of the logo (as well) and vanishes. Ghastly looks at the audience and the logo closes without any damage.


Camp Lazlo

Lazlo begins to blows a trumpet, and then Scoutmaster Lumpus walks up with a large cork and places it in the trumpet. Lazlo continues to blow on it, making a quieter trumpet sound. This is the first version of the logo to be made in a 16:9 widescreen format.

Cartoon Network Studios (Camp Lazlo).png

The Life and Times of Juniper Lee (Seasons 2-3)

Monsters lift the Cartoon Network part of the logo to escape, but Juniper jumps on top of the logo and squashes the monsters by closing the logo, and then finally jumps away from the screen.

Cartoon Network Studios (The Life and Times of Juniper Lee).png

My Gym Partner's a Monkey

Jake and Adam swing on a vine (Adam, visibly uncomfortable, is being held by Jake). Jake swings off the screen, but Adam hits the edge of the logo. This was the first variant to use a white box.

Squirrel Boy

Rodney accidentally fires a rocket, as it catches Bob Johnson by his shoe, causing a nervous laugh by Rodney at Andy. The "Cartoon Network" text is also slightly larger than normal when the logo is closed.

Class of 3000

A piano plays and Sunny Bridges appear at the first of the line, smiling and taking his hat off leading the other main characters of the show (Lil' D, Madison, Philly, Tamika, Eddie and Kim) on the ride through the piano. Eventually, Kam falls on to the piano.

Ben 10 franchise:

  • Ben 10 (Seasons 3-4) and Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix: Ben turns on the Omnitrix, chooses an alien and pushes the button, triggering a flash of green light. This variant uses a gray box, and use the "Grungy" variant of the logo. The logo also opens wider than usual.
  • Ben 10: Alien Force, Ben 10: Alien Swarm and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien: We see a close-up of a grown-up Ben's eyes. We then zoom out on him and as he does in the Ben 10 original variant, he pushes the button on the Omnitrix, triggering a flash of green light. Before the flash, Ben turns into a silhouette. This variant uses a black background and a white box. Also, it uses the ending theme of the show.

On the latter, the logo is slowed down and it doesn't close after the flash of green light.

Out of Jimmy's Head

Two of Jimmy's cartoon friends, Pickles and Prickles, hit each other with hammers. The logo also shakes when this happens even when the box is closed.

Chowder walks by with a bag of food. He eats the "O" in "NETWORK". An apple falls out of the bag and replaces the "O" as the logo closes.

The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack

Takes place in a white box and the logo is already opened. Flapjack is seen with Captain K'nuckles. Flapjack is giggling in a really annoying way. K'nuckles gets annoyed and pulls the top of the logo, closing it. On the episode "Flapjack Goes to a Party/Rye Ruv Roo", Flapjack's laughter is replaced by him barking like a dog.

Cartoon Network Studios (The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack).jpg

Underfist: Halloween Bash

The original 2001 logo is shown, but with a still zooming picture of Hoss Delgado with his banana nunchuks (which is tinted in green) and Billy (voiced by Richard Horvitz) saying "All that work and nothin' to show for it!"


Adventure Time (Season 1)

Finn pokes Jake, as he becomes larger and larger, roaring and squeezing aside him. As he does this, Finn laughs.

Cartoon Network Studios (Adventure Time, S1).png

Generator Rex (Season 1)

Rex turns his back into a jet engine, blasting off in the process while smiling, but he crashes into the logo when it closes, which causes the logo to shake. Like with the Ben 10 variant, this variant uses the "Grungy" version of the logo.
