From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

Cartoon Network Movies is the film production arm of Cartoon Network.

1st Logo (2002)

Logo: On a background with a red light and several rings emerging from the center, the 1992-2004 Cartoon Network logo zooms towards us.

Technique: The background and logo zooming in.

Music/Sounds: An announcer saying either "...from Cartoon Network..." or "Cartoon Network presents...", as taken from the trailers.

Availability: This logo was made specifically for the first theatrical trailer and video release teaser for The Powerpuff Girls Movie.


2nd Logo (July 3, 2002)

Logo: We see the seat view of a movie theater with several characters from Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes, and various Cartoon Network originals in the seats as the camera slowly zooms out. Then after a moment, the theater darkens leaving it pitch-black with many blinking eyeballs. The light from the projector shines on the audience, forming the 1992-2004 Cartoon Network logo.

Trivia: This was made by Primal Screen, the same people who made some of the PBS Kids logos. Also, this logo was later reused in Cartoon Network's 10th anniversary promo from 2002.

Technique: A pretty nice combination of 2D and 3D animation that make great accuracy.

Music/Sounds: Chattering and other miscellaneous sound effects, followed by blinking noises, and a projector running with a cymbal roll.

Availability: Rare. Only seen on The Powerpuff Girls Movie and the Dexter's Laboratory short Chicken Scratch on The Powerpuff Girls Movie VHS/DVD. It can also be seen on Primal Screen's website.


3rd Logo (August 11, 2006-November 21, 2007)

Logo: On an ethereal sky background, a plasma television set with wings flies up, then stops. When this happens, characters from various CN originals pop out around the television. On the set, we see a fuzzy picture of the Cartoon Network Movies logo (the CN logo from 2004-2010 with a gold banner reading "MOVIES" below). We then zoom up to the TV, whose picture clears up, and the CNM logo starts to shine. The logo situates itself into a letterbox format.

Trivia: The animations of Eddy (from Ed, Edd n Eddy), Edd (also from Ed, Edd n Eddy) and Billy (from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy) were recycled from Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, a block that ran on Cartoon Network from 1999 to 2003.

Variant: Sometimes the banner simply reads "MOVIE", which doesn't include the letter "S".

Technique: The CGI effects and character animations.

Music/Sounds: Three chimes when the TV flies up, then two orchestral hits (one when the TV stops, and the second when we zoom up to it). The sounds of children laughing are heard as the characters appear.

Availability: Rare. It appears on several CN made-for-TV movies from 2006 to 2007, such as Ben 10: Race Against Time, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends: Destination Imagination, and Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo. Some of which had not been seen in years. It was last seen on a June 2018 airing of Ben 10: Race Against Time.
