Background: Jumbo Pictures, Inc. was an independent animation production company founded by animator/children's' book author Jim Jinkins (creator of Doug) in 1988. In 1996, Jinkins sold the company, and the rights to Doug with it (except Nickelodeon still owns the rights to the Nick-produced series), to The Walt Disney Company. Jumbo Pictures continued operations until the cancellation of the Playhouse Disney cartoon series PB&J Otter in 2000, and was folded into Walt Disney Television Animation after that. Jinkins is still active in animation, forming his current production house "Cartoon Pizza" in partnership with David Campbell in 2000.

Nicknames: "The Egg", "The Jumbo Egg"

Logo: On a dark blue background, we see a large egg with "JUMBO" in front of it, and "PICTURES" below in far smaller type font on a black rectangle and the word "INC." in a much smaller font below "PICTURES", with the text "GRADE A QUALITY" on the bottom with "A" bigger than the rest of the letters.

Trivia: On Doug, the title character lives on 21 Jumbo Street, an allusion to the company. The character Skeeter Valentine also has a Jumbo Pictures poster in his room.

Variants:
  • Starting in 1992, the background became vanilla cream colored. Plus, there are a few differences. The black rectangle is gone and the surrounding area dims as the egg's shadow becomes visible. The word "PICTURES" is black instead of white. The text "GRADE A QUALITY" is in black and is smaller.
  • In 2000, the background became light blue. This was also seen on split-screen credit airings of Disney's Doug when aired on Disney's One Too.
  • On Disney's (Brand Spanking New) Doug and PB&J Otter, there is a copyright stamp under the logo.
  • On the 1999 film Doug's 1st Movie, the egg is smaller and the background is a different shade of light blue. Plus, "GRADE A QUALITY" is a bit bigger. The egg is also more realistic and there's no copyright stamp below.
  • On 101 Dalmatians: The Series, an in-credit version of the logo is used (text only).

FX/SFX: None in the first variant. The shadow animation in later variants in 1992.

Music/Sounds: In most cases, the closing of the show's theme was heard during this logo, but sometimes it would have a customized theme.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On the first season of the Nickelodeon version of Doug (the first show to have this logo in any form), it was a beatboxing and scatting tune that carried over to the Nickelodeon logo. For all later Nickelodeon-produced episodes after that since the second season, a snippet of background music from the show (consisting of a 1930s-style acoustic guitar and trumpet like sounder) was used with the second variant of the logo. The latter version was also heard on The Beginners Bible as well.
  • On Allegra's Window it was a dramatic rendition of the show's theme song accompanied by a rooster crowing.
  • The Disney's (Brand Spanking New) Doug series and PB&J Otter have the closing of the show's theme playing over the logo, like other shows.
  • On Doug's 1st Movie, you can hear a sampling of the Disney's (Brand Spanking New) Doug theme music.
  • At the end of the Nickelodeon Doug episode "Doug's Christmas Story", a re-endition of "Deck the Halls" plays, going into "Jingle Bells" once going to Ellipse Programme and the Nickelodeon Productions logos of the time.
  • At the end of the Nickelodeon Doug episode, "Doug Throws a Party/Doug Way Out West", the music is delayed on some airings.
  • During airings of Disney's Doug on Disney's One Too with split-screen credits, the music for the second Walt Disney Television logo would play over it, also going into the said logo.

Availability: Common. It's currently seen on Doug part of The 90s Are All That on Teen Nick and PB&J Otter on Disney Junior. Home video releases of Doug, Allegra's Window, Doug's 1st Movie, and The Beginners Bible keep the logo intact. The dark blue background variant was seen on season 1 episodes of Doug, which is now available on DVD and is currently seen on split-screen credits of said show on Teen Nick. The 101 Dalmatians: The Series variant can be seen on the tape 101 Dalmatians Christmas and when the show is reran on Disney Junior.

Scare Factor: Low to medium for the Allegra's Window and Nickelodeon's Doug variants, respectively, and none for the later variants. It mainly depended on the music heard during the logo.

Scare Factor: Depends on the variant:
*Allegra's Window: Low to medium. The VERY loud and VERY dramatic music along with the creepy rooster crowing may catch some off-guard.
*Doug (seasons 1-2): Low to medium. The "do-do-do-do-doooo" singer may creep some out.
*Doug (seasons 2-4): Low to medium. Many people weren't fond of the ever-creepy music.
*Disney's Brand-Spanking-New Doug!, PB&J Otter and 101 Dalmations: The Series: None.
*Doug's 1st Movie: Low to medium. The zoomed-back egg and the "ba-ba-doo-bop-doo-bop-doo-doo-bop" singer may catch some off-guard. Plus, many people didn't like Disney "butchering" Doug, so this version wasn't that much of a favorite of many.

Nonetheless, all the variants are now favorites of many 90's kids.

I have some more info on this logo.

Music variant: On the Doug Christmas episode "Doug's Christmas Story", a BGM clip of Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells plays over the logo, and is carried onto the Ellipse Proggrame and Nickelodeon logos.

Note: On 101 Dalmatians: The Series, a text-only version of the logo appears in the credits

The first variation of the logo is actually the one with the dark blue background. The cream colored one wasn't introduced until 1993. No new logo debuted in 1996, and the one with the light blue background didn't appear until 2000. Oh, and on the first season of Doug the logo had a weird, kinda creepy beatboxing tune. I'll fix it up later.
