Logo: Against a green gradientbackground, a paintbrush appears and paints in the words, "D'Ocon Films Productions", in a script-type font. Different rainbow colors travel through inside the text as the paintbrush leaves. The paintbrush returns and writes "presents/presenta" in the same font, and leaves again. It then fades out or zooms in.

  • On Sylvan, the background is orange-gradient.
  • On Season 1 of Problem Child, there's a dark blue-light blue gradient background with many stars and "presents" is absent.

FX/SFX: The paintbrush painting the text, the colors of the text.

Music/Sounds: A short tune, or the ending theme of the show.

Availability: Appears on Season 1 of Problem Child, and some of D'Ocon's shows.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo
(Mid-Late 1990s)
D'Ocon Films Productions (1996)
Logo: On a space background, "D'Ocon Films Productions", in the same font as before, zooms out and settles. The text "Presents" fades in underneath shortly after.

Variants: There is a variant on the second season of The Magic Adventures of Mumfie that is sped up, without the "presents" text underneath, and has the music replaced with the end credits music.

FX/SFX: The zoom out of the words, the fading in.

Music/Sounds: 2 synth notes, followed by a 7-note trumpet tune adapted from the theme song to The Fruitties. On Cartoon Network UK airings of the series, it was silent.

Availability: Seen on Pocket Dragon Adventures on DVD. Also on the 1996 VHS of Basketball Fever and on The Fruitties. Also seen on D'Ocon's shows.

Scare Factor: Low.

Logo: Over a view of a sphere with water on it, the text "D'Ocon Films" flies in and glows and an island is shown on the sphere. Everything then glows.

Variants: Some videos on the D'Ocon Films YouTube channel contain only the last few seconds of the logo.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The animation is really poor, but it's expectable from the quality of their current cartoons.

Music/Sounds: Same as the second logo, but sounding more like it was done on a MIDI synthesizer and with a more majestic finish.

Availability: Seen on D'Ocon's YouTube channel, and their other shows, like Scruff, and Kumba Island.

Scare Factor: Low.
