(February 3-March 3, 2011)

FX/SFX: The rings spinning and the blur in of TELEVISION DISTRIBUTION.

Music/Sounds: None.

2nd Logo

20th Century Fox TV Distribution (2013)20th Century Fox Television Distribution (2013)20th Century Fox Television Distribution (2013, Bylineless)20th Century Fox (2015)

Nicknames: "20th Century Tallness", "The Too-Tall Tower", "The Twentieth Tip-Over", "STST (Super-Tall Searchlight Tower)"

Logo: Similar to the 1995 20th Century Fox Television logo, except the structure and background are in the style of the 2009 theatrical logo, the animation and design are a lot cheaper, and the tower is all metallic and now reads "20th CENTURY FOX TELEVISION DISTRIBUTION".

  • Starting in mid-to-late 2013, the logo became bylineless, following the News Corp. split.
  • A variant of this logo without the "TELEVISION DISTRIBUTION" text but with the same animation as TCF's theatrical logo was spotted on two trade promos for 20th Century Fox's internal websites from 2015, seen <a href="https://vimeo.com/129141464" target="_self">here</a> and <a href="https://vimeo.com/129141465" target="_self">here</a>.
  • There is also another version on a promo for 20th Century Fox's streaming app "FoxFast" also animated like the theatrical logo, this time with the "TELEVISION DISTRIBUTION" text intact, seen <a href="https://vimeo.com/295263919" target="_self">here</a>.
FX/SFX: Almost the same as the 1995 TCFTV logo. This logo was created by Art & State.

Music/Sounds: The 2008 20th Television fanfare. On Кости (the Russian adaptation of Bones), it uses the 1995 version.

Availability: Uncommon. Appears on Lightfields and some pre-2017 prints of DreamWorks Animation shows, such as DreamWorks Dragons and The Penguins of Madagascar.This logo makes a surprise appearance at the end of Meet the Family Guys, following the Roughcut TV/ITV logos.

Editor's Note: The logo has been widely criticized for looking rushed, poorly-designed and cheaply animated.
