3rd Logo (2012?-2020)

Logo: There are different variants, and they all take place on a white background:

  • The "i" from the 2009 Nickelodeon logo looks around the screen, then looks down before the other letters pop up. This was shortened in 2013. The longer version is only used on DVDs. On Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. DVD releases, the logo features a copyright stamp at the bottom.
  • We zoom out from an orange background to reveal the letters "ni", as the other letters in "nickelodeon" pop up one at a time.
  • The letters except the last "n" waddle in. As the "i" looks to the right, the "n" waddles in, making the "i" turn to face the screen.
  • The two "n"s fly in and get stuck together like a magnet. They vibrate for a bit and separate, revealing the letters "ickelodeo" in between them as they fall down.
  • The letters of "nick" wander to the center of the screen. The "i" looks up and the letters jump to the side, as the rest of the letters in "nickelodeon fall down next to them.
  • Fullscreen and widescreen versions exist.

Technique: CGI animation that looks better than its TV counterpart.

Music/Sounds: A short ditty that varies, followed by different instruments playing the Nickelodeon tune. Sometimes, corresponding sounds are heard. On early uses of the first variant and on DVD releases, it used the TV theme.

Availability: Seen on digital (iTunes, Google Play, and many more) and DVD releases of Nickelodeon shows.
