Not to be confused with Bolder Media.

Background

Boulder Media Limited (also known as simply Boulder Media) is an Irish animation studio that was founded in 2000 by Robert Cullen. It is best known for producing select episodes of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and season 1 of The Amazing World of Gumball for Cartoon Network (the latter being co-produced with Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe), as well as season 2 of Wander Over Yonder and the 2015 reboot of Danger Mouse. In July 2016, Boulder became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hasbro. In 2022, Princess Productions acquired the company from Hasbro.



1st Logo (2000-2012)

Logo: TBA.

Technique: TBA.

Music/Sounds: TBA.

Availability: Ultra rare. Shown in one of Boulder Media's early reels.

Variants: Can be seen at the end credits of shorts like Carte de Visite (2006) and Beauty Now (2007).

2nd Logo (August 13, 2012-June 5, 2021)

Logo: On a gray stone background, we see the words "BOULDER MEDIA" appear as the stone breaks.

Variant: On Danger Mouse (the 2015 series), the word "MEDIA" is moved to the middle, and the logo is in-credit.

Technique: Possibly 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: A wrecking sound.

Availability: Common. First shown on Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, and has been seen on their productions from the time, like the 2015 Danger Mouse series, the first three seasons of Transformers: Cyberverse (later renamed Transformers: Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures for seasons 3 and 4), My Little Pony: Pony Life, and the short-lived series Littlest Pet Shop: A World of Our Own. It was last seen on Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy.

3rd Logo (September 24, 2021-)

Logo: On a purple background, we see a black line draw in from left to right. It begins to zoom forward, and after a bit of zooming, the line turns upward, revealing a 3D rendition of the Boulder Media logo (as it was seen on the Danger Mouse variant of the previous logo). It then turns up, zooms back a bit, and casts a mirror on the purple floor.

Variants:

  • There's a shortened variant.
  • On My Little Pony: A New Generation (when the logo appeared for the first time), a green tennis ball (Izzy Moonbow's object from the film) drops in from the right, bumps into the logo, and lands next to it.

Technique: Good CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The drawing and the whoosh sound.

Music/Sounds Variant: On My Little Pony: A New Generation, we hear the opening theme of the film.

Availability: Current. First seen on the Netflix original film My Little Pony: A New Generation, which marks the start of the fifth incarnation of the franchise, and has appeared on productions from the company ever since, like the company's 2021 showreel, the final season of Transformers: Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures and Transformers: BotBots.
