Background: Disney Television Animation (formerly the "Walt Disney Pictures Television Animation Group" and "
Walt Disney Television Animation") was formed in 1984 originally as the animated production arm of Walt Disney Television. Originally at the beginning of the end credits of any series, it currently uses both an in-credit text and on some series, an in-credit logo at the end of the credits, it used either the Walt Disney Television and/or Buena Vista Television/Buena Vista International logos. It was not until 2003, that it unveiled its own animated logo at the end of every show. Currently, it's the animation division of Disney Channel since 2005, who also produces programs for Disney XD (formerly "Toon Disney" and "Jetix") and Disney Junior (formerly "Playhouse Disney"). In 2009, the name "Walt" was stripped from its television division, renaming it to its current name.

This is not really a logo, only an in-credit text. At the end of the show, we see:

Produced by
Television Animation Group

... but starting in 1988, the text was read as:

Produced by

... this would usually then be followed by the Walt Disney Television logo of the time.

Later Variants:
  • This would later become an in-credit logo when the words "WALT DiSNEY" is in the actual trademark script font. During the later years, a copyright stamp for "Disney Enterprises, Inc." is added below the text or logo at the end of the credits.
  • Starting in 2011, the name "Walt" was retired from the text reading as:

Produced by

... again with the word "DiSNEY" in its corporate font and a copyright stamp for "Disney Enterprises, Inc." below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Common. It's seen intact on all Disney cartoons starting with Adventures of the Gummi Bears and Wuzzles.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo
(2003- )
Walt Disney Television Animation (2003)Walt Disney Television Animation (Widescreen, 2003)Disney Television Animation (2011)Disney Television Animation (2012)

Nickname: "Disney Castle"

Logo: It's basically the same as the then-current Walt Disney Television logo, except the text reads:


  • Pre-2006 international prints would have "Distributed by Buena Vista International, Inc." cross-fading in.
  • Some post-2011 series updated the logo by dropping "WALT" from the logo.
  • On Tron: Uprising, the logo from Tron: Legacy is used, except that the word "WALT" is dropped, and "TELEVISION ANIMATION" replaces "PICTURES".

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: Same as the then-current Walt Disney Television logo.

Music/Sounds: The long 1988 Walt Disney Television logo theme, although the music is hardly heard in America due to the closing theme playing over it. Pre-2007 non-USA prints have the music, but with the retirement of the Buena Vista International (Television) logos, it is equally rare overseas on newer shows.

Music/Sounds Variant: In
2008, there is a redone version of the 1988 fanfare.

Availability: Common. Seen on Disney cartoons currently airing on Disney XD and Disney Channel and cartoons formerly aired on ABC Kids (now "Litton's Weekend Adventure").

Scare Factor: Same as the then-current Walt Disney Television logo.

LogoFan121092 Why did they drop the "Walt"? 15 Feb 25 2014, 7:07 PM EST by Nick/20thCenturyFox

It's strange how both the WDP logo and the WDTA logo have been reduced to having just "Disney" instead of "Walt Disney". Does anyone have a theory on why they're suddenly shortening it?
