Background: First known as Kalisto Ltd. in Wales, this company debuted in 1982 as a joint venture between Mike Young and John Parkinson by producing animated series for children until that division became Siriol in 1992. When Mike Young obtained full control of the company in 1997, he made a second studio in Wales, called Mike Young Productions. Since 2006, it is part of the MoonScoop Group.

Nickname: "The Spinning Signature"

Logo: On a black background, we see a yellow oval slowly rotating to face us, with a spotlight shining on it. Over the oval is "Mike Young" in blue script, and below it is "PRODUCTIONS", also in blue with white fronts.

  • The logo may appear more zoomed in on some shows.
  • A version with a white background and a more print-looking logo was seen on the licensed video game Butt-Ugly Martians: Zoom or Doom for PS2. The print-looking variant also appeared in-credit on German prints of Pet Alien. Proof exists here:<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fz2-R_mhFyQ" target="_self">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fz2-R_mhFyQ</a>
  • On the 2001 series of Horrible Histories, it is shown with curtains.
  • On some shows, the logo is shown via split screen with other production logos.
  • On Bratz: Genie Magic, there is a byline that reads "A MoonScoop Company".
