The still version is seen on the Allegra's Window VHS release: Play with Allegra and Friends and the VHS release of Gullah Gullah Island: Feelings, plastering the 1990-2000 Nickelodeon Studios logo. The blue background variant is extinct and was last seen in 2005 when season 1 episodes of All That were reran on Nickelodeon.

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Cheesy Factor: The entire thing looks like a badly-done, thoughtless parody of the split-screen credit logo of the era. The CGI also looks somewhat cheap.

Music/Sounds: A "bubble" noise, followed by a splatting noise.

Availability: Appeared on the first couple seasons of iCarly (early episodes had the lightbulb) and the final season of Zoey 101, along with Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh. No longer seen on television, (due to plastering with the next logo), but still preserved on Amazon Instant Video prints of said series, or the next time Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh is aired. Seen here

Scare Factor: None.



44th Logo
(September 26, 2009-)

Nicknames: "Orange Letters"
Nickelodeon Productions  (2010)Nickelodeon  Productions (2010, Stampless)Nickelodeon Productions (2010)

Logo: On a white background, we see a few CGI orange lines bounce and
connect together to form the new Nickelodeon logo (which is simply the word, "nickelodeon" in it's new customized typeface and is rather similar to the old "pinball" logo from the early '80s). After this is complete, ''PRODUCTIONS'', set in the ubiquitous Gotham, fades in underneath the logo. A copyright byline appears below.

Variants:
  • A version without a copyright stamp was spotted on a repeat broadcast of the sneak peek/pilot of Victorious on March 29, 2010 along with a few episodes of T.U.F.F. Puppy.
  • A small in-credit version of this logo exists on Big Time Rush split-screen episodes on Nickelodeon.
  • There is a shorter version of this logo seen on post-2010 episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants
  • On shows produced by Nickelodeon's Australian unit, the words "A Nickelodeon Australia Production" are seen above the copyright stamp.
  • On TeenNick reruns of All That, the logo is in warp speed.
  • NickMom shows use a variation of the logo, featuring various still shots of a woman's high heels on a purple background. The Nick logo flips in and "PRODUCTIONS" wipes in underneath it, as copyright info appears in black boxes with white texts.

FX/SFX: CGI animation. This was done by Trollback + Company in New York.

Cheesy Factor
: The animation looks rather plastic, cheap and simple, like it was done in Adobe After Effects.

Music/Sounds: A techno beat, then an instrumental version of the famous Nick theme song. Later, bubbling sounds were added. The NickMom variant uses a different techno theme. On at least one print on Team Umizoomi it used the kids laughing from the weird thing split screen logo from 2000.

Music/Sounds Variant: Some shows use a shortened version of the music, or the end theme.

Availability: Very common. Appears on all Nick shows as of September 26, 2009. Recently used across the globe. The NickMom logo is rarer due to the block being shut down in late 2015, but is still preserved on iTunes prints of NickMom shows.

Scare Factor: None, it's tame. However, many Nickelodeon fans of the '80s, '90s, and early-to-mid 2000s find it inferior to the famed orange splat logo. You'll also probably be annoyed by its over-usage.
