1st Logo (June 5, 2006)

Logo: On a black background, we see the text "Dolphin" in white with "ENTERTAINMENT" much smaller below and to the right. The dot of the "i" is replaced with a dolphin tail fluke.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme.

Availability: Seen on the Lifetime TV movie Island Heat: Stranded.

2nd Logo (October 30, 2007-January 22, 2013, May 8, 2016-January 14, 2018 )

Logo: We see a rippling blue ocean with a dark shaded circular object in the middle. The shade then narrows and curves counterclockwise. It curves clockwise, and upon completing its curve, dark blue silhouettes of three leaping dolphins form. The screen flashes as we transition to a white background, with the dolphins becoming thin, uncolored blue lines. The company name, with "DOLPHIN" on top in large, light blue, slim text and "entertainment" in small, dark blue, thick text below it, ripples in.

Variant: There's a short variant, that has only the logo forming.

Technique: The rippling and fading.

Music/Sounds: Ocean waves and dolphin chirps.

Availability: Seen on the Roxy Hunter TV movies on Nickelodeon, Tower Prep on Cartoon Network, What's Up Warthogs on Family Channel, and the Warner Premiere Digital webseries Aim High and H+: The Digital Series. Also seen on Raising Expectations.

Dolphin Films

(December 25, 2013, October 14, 2016)

Logo: Underwater, we see a dolphin swimming. Another dolphin ends up joining, then a third. They then leap out of the ocean onto a light blue background, where they become 2D, and the ocean becomes a line that shines and waves like water. The text "DOLPHIN FILMS" zooms to the sides of the dolphins, "DOLPHIN" being in skinny light blue text and "FILMS" thick dark blue. The logo shines.

Technique: Great CGI by Creative Capers Entertainment!

Music/Sounds: None or the opening theme.

Availability: Seen on Justin Bieber's Believe and Max Steel.

Legacy: A very well-animated logo, though it’s wasted because it was only used on two movies.
