Background: Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe is the European division of Cartoon Network, which is based in London. It was founded in 2007 and is the European equivalent to Cartoon Network Studios.

1st Logo
(April 2011-)

Logo: Against a peach-white gradient background, we see a black rectangle. Then, a fuzzy black ball with eyes bounces through the rectangle, making the 1992-2004 Cartoon Network logo appear letter-by-letter on both letters. When the fuzzy ball gets the last one, it looks down, gets mad and notices the last letters in "CARTOON NETWORK" aren't there. The fuzzy ball jumps on it to make the last letters appear. After that, the words, "DEVELOPMENT STUDIO EUROPE" zooms out and places under the logo with a couple of tiny splats around it. Then the fuzzy ball smiles. The logo disappears via a TV turning off transition.

  • On Latin American airings of older episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball, the logo (including the audio) is warp-speed.
  • On Cartoon Network USA's airings of The Amazing World of Gumball with the last-scene-of-the-show credits, the logo is shorten to when the fuzzy black ball is already on the rectangle forming the words, and the TV turning off transition has been removed.

FX/SFX: The black fuzzy ball bouncing, the letters in "CARTOON NETWORK" appearing letter-by-letter and the "DEVELOPMENT STUDIO EUROPE" zooming-out.

Music/Sounds: 6 string notes when the ball bounces, then 2 orchestral hits and 2 playful notes followed by the sound of a TV turning off.

Music/Sounds Variant: One variation has "stepping" sounds as the fuzz bounces, a grunt from the fuzz when he notices that the N/K doesn't light up, a splat sound when "Development Studio Europe" appears, and the fuzzy ball laughing. It can be found on short pilots produced by the studio in the past, such as Elliot's Zoo, Pinky Malinky, and Verne on Vacation.

Availability: Common, It's currently seen on The Amazing World of Gumball on Cartoon Network in the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States. Unfortunately in the United States, the music is not heard as the credits are in split-screen format or as of July 2017, superimposed on the ending scene of the show, (however the music is heard on Video On Demand prints, and DVDs of the show). Don't expect to see this on Nickelodeon airings in Germany or on prints. It also can be seen on all the shorts on the CNDevStudioEurope YouTube channel.

Editor's Note: None.
