Logo: We see a paper-cutout space background filled with stars, meteors, the Moon at the bottom right, and Mars below. We also see a black rocket, with the Alliance A logo on top in yellow, and the text stack "AAC KIDS" written below in light blue with the "I" dotted with a yellow star. The rocket lands on Mars and sits there as stars and meteors pass by.

Variants:

  • There is a long version of this logo where the AAC rocket flies like a bee around the moon and bumps into Pluto. This was seen on Hoze Houndz on Family Channel in Canada, along with airings of Connie the Cow outside of the USA.
  • Sometimes, the URL "www.allianceatlantis.com" is at the bottom.
  • There's a rare version where it starts out with the rocket already on Mars, with the Moon, Pluto, and a green CGI-esque object (possibly a satellite) nearby; the rocket then blasts off from Mars, trailing smoke as the green object flies towards us and off-screen; the smoke fills the background, turning it white before fading to black. This version was seen on I Was a Sixth Grade Alien.

Technique: The star and rocket animations.

Music/Sounds: Assorted sci-fi and cartoon sound effects (like the classic Hanna-Barbera "whiz/zip" sound in reverse) and a child giggling. In some cases, it's the closing theme of the show or silence.

Availability: Rare. Seen on season 1 & 2 episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation on PlutoTV. Also seen on the short-lived cartoon Yvon of the Yukon, season 2 episodes of Shadow Raiders, season 4 episodes of ReBoot, Henry's World, as well as the late 90's Disney Channel show The Famous Jett Jackson. It also plastered the Claster Television logo on previous seasons of ReBoot.
