Wolf Tracer Studios
Wolf Tracer Studios was an animation studio founded by Colin Slater and only has two animated projects to its name. Both were made with the 3D Choreographer software, and as it was never made with television or film production in mind, it resulted in really, really horrendous animation, and Slater intended to make franchises of the only two projects the studio made. They were also both considered to be lost for the longest time and were only recently uncovered.

Logo: On a black background we see a yellow border rectangle. Inside is a yellow cartoony-looking wolf. Under that is "WOLF TRACER" and beneath that either "Pictures" or "STUDIOS INC" also in yellow.
- On Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa, we see a white-colored, cartoony-looking wolf fall down like a snowflake on the background of the credits to the special, until it reaches the center of the screen and stays there. The background fades out to a black background, and the rest of the logo appears. A light then appears and moves behind the text, while the wolf's eyes turn red.
- On Dinosaur Island, the wolf's eyes turn red, then the whole logo starts swaying back and forth and slowly zooms out. At the ending of the film, the rectangle with the wolf (with the red eyes) rises up from the sea and zooms in towards the center of the screen. The same light effect previously mentioned occurs behind the text, while copyright info appears on the bottom.
Technique: 2D animation.
Music/Sounds: On Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa, a shine synth is heard on time with a flash, while Great Grandma from the film is heard saying "Adios, (unintelligible)! Mahalo, dasvidanya, ho-ho, go on now! Lil' cartoon is over.". On Dinosaur Island, it's the movie's opening and ending themes.
Availability: It can be seen at the ending of the infamous special Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa (which was only aired on The WB-affiliated stations for a month in 2002 and never aired again) and the beginning and end of the film Dinosaur Island (aka Wolf Tracer's Dinosaur Island).
