Logo: Superimposed on the end credits is a black and white version of the 1986 MGM logo on a purple background with a dark purple silhouette of the titular character Pink Panther. Above Leo (the famous/infamous MGM lion, of course), the words "Produced in Hollywood, U.S.A. by" appear in pink and in a Dom Casual font. Below it is the word "Animation" in gray.

2nd Logo (September 10, 1994-April 12, 1995, July 31, 1998-November 6, 1998)

MGM Animation MGM Television (1994).jpg

Nicknames: "Leo the Tiger", "Leo the Lion II", "Still Leo the Lion II"

Logo: Superimposed on the end credits is a more cartoony version of the MGM logo (with a version of Leo that appears to resemble a tiger) on a purple background with lines around it. Plus, the first letter initials in "Metro Goldwyn Mayer" are red like in the 1953 and 1957 MGM logos and there is a dark blue-light blue gradient circle inside the ribboning behind the lion. The same "Produced in Hollywood, U.S.A. by" text from the previous logo in a Dom Casual font appears on the top. "Animation" is now in a gold script wiping in below.

Variant: On Season 3 of All Dogs Go to Heaven: The Series, the first letter initials in "Metro Goldwyn Mayer" are gold like in the 3rd logo and the "Metro Goldwyn Mayer" and "Animation" words are larger. Plus, the text "PRODUCED IN HOLLYWOOD, U.S.A. BY" are all caps and not pink.

FX/SFX: The "Animation" in script font wiping in under the logo.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on the second season of the 1993 The Pink Panther series and the final season of All Dogs Go to Heaven: The Series.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (September 21, 1996-February 3, 1999)

Nicknames: "Leo the Lion II", "Still Leo the Lion II", "Gold Ribboning", "Leo in Color"

Logo: At the end of the credits, we see the normal MGM logo. The same "Animation" script from the previous logo wipes below, with "Produced in Hollywood, U.S.A. by" above in the Arial font.

Variants:

  • There is a variant in which the words "For Orion Pictures, Inc.", then later, "For Orion Pictures, Corporation", appeared below the logo. This logo is on a green background with scenes from RoboCop: Alpha Commando.
  • On Seasons 1 and 2 of All Dogs Go to Heaven: The Series, the PRODUCED IN HOLLYWOOD, U.S.A. BY is in a bolder Roman font. The MGM logo is the print artwork logo. However, the first four episodes of the first season use the normal MGM logo, but with a black circle inside the ribboning behind the ribbon.
  • On The Lionhearts, the logo is on a black background.

FX/SFX: The "Animation" in script font wiping in under the logo.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on episodes of Robocop: Alpha Commando, The Lionhearts, and Seasons 1 and 2 of All Dogs Go to Heaven: The Series.

Editor's Note: The Robocop: Alpha Commando variant has a grammatical error. The byline reads "For Orion Pictures, Corporation", when it should read "For Orion Pictures Corporation" without a comma.
