Background: Jam Filled Toronto is a Canadian CGI animation and special effects studio based in Toronto, Ontario, with a long and very troubled history. It was founded in 1985 as Dan Krech Productions and later known as DKP Studios. It was acquired by IDT Entertainment in 2004 and renamed to IDT Entertainment Animation Canada. In May 2006, Liberty Media purchased IDT, renaming the animation studio to Starz Animation Toronto. In April 2009, Starz Animation was spun off and renamed to Arc Productions. In 2016, Arc went bankrupt and locked out its employees due to a financial emergency, and was eventually bought by Jam Filled Entertainment, who renamed the studio to it's current name, Jam Filled Toronto.

: On a black background, the hand-drawn word "Arc" draws itself. Then "PRODUCTIONS" fades in below with the green underline.

FX/SFX: The name drawing itself. The logo fading in on Ormie. None on Thomas & Friends and Rusty Rivets.

Music/Sounds: The opening/ending theme.

Availability: Seen on anything that the company made, like Robosapien: Rebooted and Season 17 to Season 20 of Thomas & Friends. The Season 20 DVD Extraordinary Engines doesn't contain this logo, even though Arc animated all the episodes on it.

2nd Logo
Arc Productions (2016)

Logo: On a white background, we see three shapes which are colored red, blue, and green. On these shapes is the word "Arc" in white ("A" is on the red shape, "r" is on the blue shape, and "c" is on the green shape). "PRODUCTIONS" is below in grey.

FX/SFX: The logo fading in. None on the variant.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the movie. On Tarzan and Jane, none.

Variant: On Tarzan and Jane, the background is black, and "PRODUCTIONS" is in white.

Availability: Rare, due to it being short lived before the company's bankruptcy. Seen on Barbie: Star Light Adventure. The black background version appears on Tarzan and Jane.

Editor's Note: None.

Jam Filled Toronto

Logo: On a black background, we see the Jam Filled Entertainment logo (without the star), but the word "Entertainment" is removed. The star from the Jam Filled Entertainment logo hits the jar, which tilts back, then goes back into it's normal position. We then see the finished logo, which is just the Jam Filled Entertainment logo without "Entertainment".

FX/SFX: The star hitting the jar and the jar moving. None on Thomas & Friends and Kody Kapow.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show. The Bubble Guppies variant uses pinball-like ricochet noises as the star hits the jar.

  • On Thomas & Friends, the logo is still.
  • On Kody Kapow, the background is white and the logo is smaller and again still.
  • Bubble Guppies uses a longer variant where the star hits the jar twice before it tilts back.
Availability: Currently seen on Rusty Rivets and Season 5 onwards of Bubble Guppies. The still version appears on Thomas & Friends starting from Season 20. The white background version appears on Kody Kapow.

Editor's Note: None.
