Nickname: "Nickelodeon Jack"

Logo: On a black background, a 3D jack-shaped Nickelodeon logo spins in from the top left corner of the screen and then moves into place. Copyright info is shown below.

  • On the first season of All That, the logo is a bit smaller, appears on a shaded blue background, and is re-animated, meaning the 3-D is fully rendered throughout.
FX/SFX: The spinning.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: The variant with the black background is extremely rare and was first used as an ident for Nickelodeon. It appeared on Roundhouse, which airs on NickSplat occasionally (it is unknown if it keeps this logo intact, or plaster it with the 2009 logo). This logo is also intact on Roundhouse episodes featured on the Nick Snicks Friendship and Nick Snicks the Family VHS tapes from the early '90s.The blue background variant is extinct and was last seen in 2005 when season 1 episodes of All That were reran on Nickelodeon. However, seeing that All That is currently rerunning on the TeenNick block NickSplat, this may be still be intact on those season 1 episodes if the split-screen credits aren't present. Otherwise, expect the 2009 logo to plaster it.

Editor's Note: If you can see in the original variant, the Jack doesn't seem to be rendered properly, as you can see lines around it.

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare in the U.S.; uncommon in Canada and the UK. It appeared on early episodes of Rocko's Modern Life and KaBlam!. Newer airings of these shows often cut this logo out, but it has been left intact on the Rocko's Modern Life episodes "Power Trip/To Heck and Back" and "Down the Hatch/Road Rash" on TeenNick's NickSplat (the former is where the nickname "The Power Trip Logo" comes from). It also appeared on Kenan and Kel reruns and several Rugrats reruns on Nick Jr. in the UK. It's still intact on Canadian airings of Rocko's Modern Life and The Ren And Stimpy Show.

10th Logo
(April 10-December 16, 1994)

11th Logo

Nickelodeon Productions (1994)Nickelodeon Balloon Dog (1997)

Nickname: "Nickelodeon Balloon Dog"

Logo: On a black background, we see an orange, hot-dog-shaped balloon inflating. The balloon then transforms into a balloon dog. The word "NICKELODEON" is on the balloon dog.

Availability: Rare. It was seen on two Nickelodeon TV movies, Oh, Brother! and Stick Stickly in "Stuck". The former (almost) never reruns on TV anymore, but can be found on YouTube. The latter has been reran on NickSplat a numerous amount of times and has made the logo easier to find. It was also used as a network ID.

12th Logo
(October 1, 1994-September 28, 1996)

Nickname: "Nickelodeon Cap"

Logo: A 3-D Nickelodeon cap spins in. The copyright info is shown below.

Availability: Very rare. Appears on the last two seasons (before the reboot in 1999) of Are You Afraid of the Dark? and the first two seasons of The Secret World of Alex Mack, both of which preserve the logo on DVD releases. The logo also appeared on some episodes of
Nick News from this time period. The black background version was also used as a Nickelodeon ident. The animated version is extinct, because it was only used as a station ID.

13th Logo
(September 4, 1994-January 17, 1997, 1998-2004)

  • On season 2 of All That and season 1 of Kenan & Kel, the logo cuts to the Nickelodeon Studios logo.
  • Sometimes, the copyright info is absent.

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show, or silent, as in the case of All That. On at least one episode of All That, the buzzing sound from the Nickelodeon Productions "Lightbulb" logo (22nd logo on this page) was used, possibly due to an editing error, as it is unlikely it was an actual variant. Kenan & Kel has the announcer's (Kenan Thompson) spiel for the Nickelodeon Studios logo for the show play over this logo.

Availability: First used as a Nickelodeon station ID. It appeared on some episodes of The Adventures of Pete and Pete, and can also be seen on Season 2 episodes of All That (including the Good Burger Special) and season 1 of Kenan & Kel, which is available on iTunes. This logo also appeared on the rarely seen Nickelodeon Sports Theater with Shaquille O'Neal, which last aired on Nicktoons in 2014. This was also seen on pre-September 2000 split-screen credits airings of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

14th Logo
Nickelodeon Productions - CLG WikiNickelodeon Productions - CLG Wiki

Nickname: "Nickelodeon Scribble"

Logo: We see the orange scribble-like shape with "NICKELODEON" on it (the one usually used in the intro for the logo of Rugrats). Under it is the copyright notice (in either white or yellow).

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare. It's seen on Nick News episodes from this period, which airs on NickSplat on very rare occasions. It was last seen on November 5th, 2016, when an episode was ran on The Splat to commemorate the 2016 US presidential election.

15th Logo
(October 1995)

: "Who Loves Orange Soda?", "Kel Loves
Orange Soda!", "Nickelodeon Cup"

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The end theme for Oh, Brother!.

Nicknames: "The Housefly", "Nickelodeon Fly"

Logo: On a sky background with moving clouds, an orange housefly comes from the the top of the screen and flies around in circles twice before stopping right in front of us.We see "NICKELODEON" in its familiar font on the fly.

Variant: On March-September 2000 airings of KaBlam!,The Amanda Show, and Rocket Power episodes using the split screen credits, the background is black and a copyright notice is below. The fly buzzing noise is absent.

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show, along with a fly buzzing.

Availability: Rare. It was seen on season 3 episodes of Legends of the Hidden Temple and the black background version was seen on the aforementioned shows. It was also used as a station ID.

17th Logo
(June 25, 1995, September 5, 1995-July 28, 1998, September 21, 1999, March 3, 2000-September 3?, 2000)
Nickelodeon Planet LogoNickelodeon Planet ID

Nicknames: "Orange Saturn", "Nickelodeon Planet", "Nickelodeon Saturn"

Logo: Over a black background, a Saturn-shaped Nickelodeon logo flies up from the bottom of the screen, orbited by two moons. It settles in the center of the screen, and "PRODUCTIONS" in white and spaced-out, pops up from the bottom, settling under the logo.

Trivia: This logo may be a nod to the T-shirt worn by Rugrats character Chuckie Finster, which has the planet Saturn on it, although this logo never appeared on any Rugrats episode, or VHS/DVD release.

  • On Space Cases, the word "PRODUCTIONS" is gone.
  • On the rare German television special,Nickelodeon Goes to Germany, at the end of the AAAHH! Real Monsterssegment, a strange sign saying "Ab 1. Culi (Coming July 1)" appears above a giant dollhouse. As the camera zooms into the dollhouse, the sign flies away, and an early version of this logo is seen, lacking the word "PRODUCTIONS" and copyright info.
FX/SFX: The flying logo.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Space Cases and Global Guts. The latter can be found on iTunes.
It was also seen after March-September 2000 Nickelodeon USA airings of Doug following the split-screen credits. This logo was also used as a station ID.

18th Logo
(May 11, 1996-April 5, 2008)
Nickelodeon - CLG WikiNickelodeon Productions (1999)Nickelodeon ProductionsNickelodeon Productions (Romeo!)Nickelodeon Productions (1999)Nickelodeon Productions (2005)

Nickname: "Nickelodeon Lightbulb"

Logo: On a black background, a Nickelodeon logo shaped like a lightbulb can be seen, with a green electric charge surrounding the bulb forming the word "productioNs" on the bottom-right side. The copyright information is below with various fonts depending on the show (it's absent on some shows, such as Romeo!).

  • Just for Kicks has a trademark bug next to the lightbulb.
  • On the 1999 Kids' Choice Awards, the lightbulb is in a light purple and dark purple lighted environment with green and purple swirling shapes. The lightbulb is first seen as if it reads "NOEDOLEKCIN", meaning the logo was being viewed in "backwards vision". The camera zooms slightly away from it and then zooms fast to the bulb. Then, the entire thing flips and the lightbulb is in its correct position and now reads "NICKELODEON" correctly, and the camera zooms away and back to the bulb again, acting as if either the lightbulb is acting like a yo-yo or the camera is acting like the lightbulb is a trampoline. Finally, when the camera zooms to the bulb a third time, the electric charge and the word "productioNs" come in to their respective places. The camera then zooms away and finally stops. The lightbulb flexes itself for a few seconds and purple and red stars spin around the logo (in a "dizzy"-like situation). Finally, the lightbulb glows and the background flickers to black, with the electric charge and the word "productioNs" disappearing for a split-second before finally, changing into the already-formed standard logo with the usual buzzing sound and all.
  • On at least one episode of Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, the lightbulb is replaced with an orange Nick splat logo.
FX/SFX: None or the electric charge flickering for the normal logo. 3-D animation for theKids' Choice Awardsvariant.

Music/Sounds: A buzzing sound. The volume of the buzzing varies with each show.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • Some shows just played the ending theme.
  • On Mr. Meaty, the buzzing sound played over the end theme (this audio variant also appeared on split-screen credits of Mr. Meaty where this logo was plastered by the 3rd Nickelodeon logo).
  • The 1999 Kids Choice Awards variant had a deep-sounding synth tune (sounding almost like it was played on a didgeridoo) followed by a cymbal crash and twinkling noises, which segues into the normal buzzing sound.

Availability: Even though this logo appeared on almost all live action Nickelodeon shows from the era it was used, it's rare. The variant seen on the 1999 Kids Choice Awards is also extinct as it was only known to been seen on said show. The logo is now harder to find than it was in the past, thanks to plastering, but it can be seen at the end of Kenan & Kel (starting with season 2) along with reruns on TeenNick as part of NickSplat (not falling victim to the split-screen credits),as well as pre-2007 Nick series such as Drake & Josh, Unfabulous, and earlier episodes of iCarly.Strangely, some animated Nickelodeon shows used this logo in favour of NAS logos, such as KaBlam!and Pelswick.This logo is not usually preserved on DVD's and VHS tapes of Nick shows and is usually replaced in favor of the NAS Haypile logo. However, this logo is still retained on instant streaming prints of Nick shows from the time. This is also preserved on VOD prints of Drake and Josh and Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. While Schneider's Bakery shows eventually stopped using this logo in favor of the 20th logo, Just Jordan kept this logo until its end in 2008. It appeared when NickSplat aired Double Dare 2000 in celebration of Double Dare's revival during the week of June 29th, 2018. TBA for the Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide variant. The short version of this logo also made a suprise appearance on the Where Nick Was Madevideo, uploaded by the Splat/NickRewind YouTube channel on May 26, 2016 (you can see it <a href="" target="_self" title="here">here</a>).

Editor's Note: This is generally a well-known and memorable logo among fans of the '90s and 2000s Nick.

19th Logo
(October 21, 1997-2001)

Nickelodeon Lightbulb (1997)

Nicknames: "Nick Lightbulb II", "3D Nick Lightbulb"

Logo: We see an orange 3D lightbulb with "NICK" written on it. Copyright info is shown below.

Trivia: This logo was used as the icon for the PC game Nickelodeon 3-D Movie Maker.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Rare. Seen on some episodes of Doug including the Christmas special, plastering the "Pencil" logo. Also seen on some SpongeBob SquarePants episodes plastering the Nicktoons "Splat". It made a brief cameo on the 1995 short film Foil-Man. It was also used as a Station ID.

20th Logo
(October 6, 2007-October 3, 2009)

: "Orange Ball", "Nickelodeon Blob", "CGI Nickelodeon Splat", "The Sucky Splat", "The Shoestring-Budget Bubble"

Logo: Over a teal-white radial gradient background with green bubbles (like the 2006 Nick split-screen credits logo), we see a blob reading "NICKELODEON". It floats around for a second, then it rams into the screen and turns into a splat. The copyright info is below.

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: A "bubble" noise, followed by a splatting noise.

Availability: Was common in its time, but now it's rare. It was used on the Schneider's Bakery sitcoms, such as the first couple seasons of iCarly (early episodes had the "Lightbulb") starting with the episode "iNevel" and last seen on the episode "iCarly Awards" and the final season of Zoey 101, along with Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh. No longer seen on television, (due to plastering with the next logo), but still preserved on Amazon Instant Video prints of said series. Whenever Nickelodeon USA airs Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh, Nick's infamous over-the-last-scene credits play, causing this logo to be plastered with one the 2017 logos below. However, it is intact on the movie's DVD release. Also, TeenNick USA airings of the iCarly special, "iGo to Japan", this logo is surprisingly intact because of the fact the special's original credits is displayed at the end.

Nicknames: "Orange Letters", "Lines of Annoyance", "CGI Plastic", "Lines of Boredom"

: On a white background, we see a few CGI orange lines bounce and connect together to form the new Nickelodeon logo (which is simply the word, "nickelodeon" in its new customized typeface and is rather similar to the old "pinball" logo from the early '80s). After this is complete, PRODUCTIONS, set in the ubiquitous Gotham, fades in underneath the logo. A copyright byline appears below.

Trivia: The new logo was introduced in July 2009 and officially on September 28, 2009, however Nickelodeon used this logo on an accident on September 26, 2009 on most airings of their programs. The logo was designed by Eric Zim and the font for this logo is called "Litebulb".

  • A version without a copyright stamp was spotted on split-screen credits airings ofT.U.F.F. Puppy and Victorious.
  • A small in-credit version of this logo exists on 2010-2014Big Time Rush and Victoriousreruns on Nickelodeon.
  • There is a shorter version of this logo seen on post-2010 episodes ofSpongeBob SquarePants,and episodes ofThe Loud House.
  • On shows produced by Nickelodeon's Australian unit, the words "A Nickelodeon Australia Production" are seen above the copyright stamp.
  • On TeenNick reruns ofAll That, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn, and the first two seasons of School of Rock(2016 adaptation) along with some other shows, the logo is in warp speed.
  • NickMom shows use a variation of the logo, featuring various still shots of a woman's high heels on a purple background. The Nick logo flips in and "PRODUCTIONS" wipes in underneath it, as copyright info appears in black boxes with white texts.
  • A extended version of this logo exists where it's only just the white background for a few seconds before the animation starts.
  • A still version is seen on the Nick-produced Netflix specials Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus.
  • On various airings of Nick shows on September 26, 2009, two copyright notices would appear on the logo. One from 2009 (the year the logo came out), and another depending on when the show's episode came out.
FX/SFX: CGI animation. This was done by Trollback + Company in New York.

Music/Sounds: A techno beat, then an instrumental version of the famous Nick theme song. The NickMom variant uses a different techno theme.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • Some shows use a shortened version of the music.
  • Sometimes, the end theme is used instead.
  • T.U.F.F Puppy uses a quiet guitar riff from the show.
  • On Dan Schneider's shows (iCarly,Victorious,Sam & Cat,Henry Danger (until Season 5), andGame Shakers), bubbling sounds are heard with the normal theme.
  • Also on split-screen credits airings of Dan Schneider shows (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, and Zoey 101), the bubbling sounds aren't heard and the first few notes have been remixed before going to the more familiar theme. This was last seen in November 2012 when Teennick's split-screen credits would play logos in fullscreen and with audio.
  • On theDora the Explorer episode "Dora's Super Soccer Showdown", the music is low-pitched.
  • On The Loud House, the final segment of the end theme trails into the beginning of the logo.
  • On at least one print of Team Umizoomi, it used the laughing sound from the 2000-2006 Nickelodeon split-screen credits logo. This also happened on airings of various iCarly episodes on September 26, 2009, and again on an airing of the iCarly episode, "iNevel" on November 1, 2009.
  • On I Am Frankie, the logo has an strange techno remix of the music. The music actually originated from an <a href="" target="_self">SpongeBob SquarePants bumper that was used from 2009 until 2012.</a>
  • On airings of various SpongeBob SquarePants episodes on September 26, 2009, the logo had the audio of the following United Plankton Pictures, Inc. logo because of the fact that the split screen credits accidentally used this logo instead of the "CGI Lightbulb" logo.
Availability: Very common. Appears on all Nick shows starting in September 2009, with it also being used to plaster every previous logo on the split-screen (and later compressed) credits. The NickMom logo is rarer due to the block being shut down in late 2015, but is still preserved on iTunes prints of NickMom shows. The extended version is more harder to find due to it being seen on split-screen credits airings of T.U.F.F Puppy and Danny Phantom. It was retired on Nicktoons (the channel) as of May 2014. This logo was first spotted on most programs on Nickelodeon's schedule on September 26, 2009, but didn't officially premiere on Nick channels and replace the "CGI Lightbulb" until 2 days later. However, starting with the 2017 Kids' Choice Awards in March 2017, shows are slowly starting to phase this logo out with various variants of the logos below. However, some shows still continue to use this logo, notably the Schneider's Bakery sitcoms.

Editor's Note: Many Nickelodeon fans of the '80s, '90s, and early-to-mid 2000s find it inferior to the famed orange splat logo. You'll also probably be annoyed by its over-usage.

22nd Logo
(March 11, 2017-April 3, 2017, June 11, 2017-)

Nickelodeon Productions (2017)Nickelodeon (2017)Nickelodeon Productions (2019)

Nicknames: "Playground Nick", "Orange Letters II", "Kids and Orange"

Logo: On a light blue background, we see the word "nick" in the same font as the previous logo appear by having the "n" and "i" form in a similar fashion to the previous logo, and the "c" slides out from the "i" and the "k" rotates counterclockwise. It then cuts to a another shot with a boy on a skateboard, and there's an orange line below the words, also the "i" has been stretched to the top of the screen. Then, it cuts to another shot with some more kids and orange lines on the left and right of the logo. A girl holds on to the "i" and pulls it, and then it cuts to a closer view of the girl,but she lets go of it, causing the camera to then cut to another shot of the letters in "nickelodeon" pop in, with "PRODUCTIONS"(which is smaller and in a different font (namedGalano Grotesque) than the previous logo) sliding from below the logo down.

  • A more commonplace short version exists where the part with the kids has been cut and it starts where the Nickelodeon logo comes in.
  • Another one without a copyright notice and the words "PRODUCTIONS" exist.
  • Starting with the second season of Knight Squad, the logo has been slightly modified. The background is in a slightly lighter blue color, the bottom portion of the background has a pattern of a tile floor, the screen shakeswhen the Nickelodeon logo pops on screen, and the copyright notice is now in a much thinner font and in gray.
FX/SFX: A mix of live-action and 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The short version uses a techno remix of the famous Nickelodeon theme, while the long version uses an extended version of that theme.

(March 11, 2017, May 3, 2017-May 16, 2017, July 7, 2017-)

Nicknames:"Orange Letters III", "Birthday of Nick", "Ballooning Orange"

Logo: On a white background, we see some orange balloons with the letters in "NICK" (in the same font as the previous 2 logos) on them cover up the screen for a few seconds and the balloons then float up off-screen. As this happens, the letters in the Nickelodeon logo (also from the previous logo) also float up and form the logo as "PRODUCTIONS" in the same font(namedGalano Grotesque Alternate) as the previous logo, slides up below the logo as it fades in. A copyright byline (in the same font as "PRODUCTIONS") appears below or without the copyright byline.

  • A shortened version exists where the balloons are almost off-screen.
  • An even longer version exists where we first get a close-up of the "N" balloon, followed by one of the "I" balloon, then the camera zooms out to reveal the other 3, and the animation proceeds as normal.
  • OnThe Loud House,PAW Patroland SpongeBob SquarePants, the logo is missing "PRODUCTIONS".
  • On the Loud House mini-short "The Maltese Bear" (which was made in a film noir style), the logo is in black-and-white with a grainy film effect.
FX/SFX: A mix of 2-D and CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: A light pop tune ending off with an instrumental (but slightly rearranged) version of the Nick theme song.

Music/Sounds Variant: On The Loud House(starting with the episode, "Lynn-er Takes All"), the logo has the music of the 21st logo and also has the end theme trailing off into the logo.

Nicknames: "Orange Letters V", "Zipper and Orange"

Logo: On a blue cloth-like background, the words "nick" in the same font as the previous three logos zooms out and suddenly, a zipper appears covering up the words and revealing the 2009 Nickelodeon logo all in white on a reddish-orange cloth-like background. The "l" gets launched into the air and spins in mid-air. When it lands, "PRODUCTIONS" appear below in the same font as the previous two logos in purple.

  • A shorter version of the logo starts when the zipper covers up the words "nick".
  • A extended version of this logo starts on the reddish-orange cloth-like background, a outline of the "k" with the blue cloth background inside of it zooms in to make the background blue. The "n" and "i" forms in a similar fashion to the 46th logo and the "c" slides out left from the right side of the "i" and the "k" tilts counter-clockwise and the animation goes on to what is described in the standard length version.
  • On Star Falls, the logo is missing the word "PRODUCTIONS".
FX/SFX: Everything.

Music/Sounds: A techno remix of the Nickelodeon jingle with the sounds of a zipper closing and a "woosh!" when the words are in the air. The extended version uses the end theme of the special or an extended version of the short version's theme.
