Licensed in 1996 by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), the English language channel launched on October 17, 1997. It was originally owned by a consortium made up of various other Canadian specialty services and producers; The Family Channel Inc. acting as managing partner at 53.3% (Astral Media & WIC), YTV Canada Inc. at 26.7% (Shaw Communications), Cinar and Nelvana with 10% each. Through various acquisitions over the years, ownership resulted in both Astral Media and Corus Entertainment owning a 50% stake in the service during the time frame. Currently, Teletoon is wholly owned by Corus Entertainment since January 1, 2014.

Nicknames: "Growing Panes", "The Corporate Chiclet", "Teletoon Smile", "Oval Smile"

Logo: On a white canvas background, a bunch of pencil lines draw in a outline of a oval with a bulge near the top, with the white section being narrower. In that section, the logo is drawn in with both pencil and paint as the oval outline fills with red. The logo eventually bulges out a bit and "pops" into existence, now with shines and shadows. The logo slowly hovers as "TELETOON is a registered trademark owned by TELETOON Canada Inc." appears below in both English and French.

  • In the station's early years, the red border wasn't there, and sometimes it appeared blue, turquoise, orange or having no border at all.
  • In some shows, it appears superimposed in the credits inside a box.
  • A byline-less variant was used as a network ID. It was also seen on the first season of What's With Andy.
  • On French releases of My Dad The Rockstar, the logo is still.
  • On Atomic Betty and the second season of Marvin The Tap Dancing Horse, the logo plays warp speed.
  • There's also an extended version used on 2004 episodes of Totally Spies and Zeroman. The second half of the extended version appears also on the first season of Harry & His Bucket Full Of Dinosaurs.
  • On the first season of Wayside, the first two seasons of 6Teen, and The Future Is Wild, "<a class="external" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a>" is seen below the logo.
  • On later episodes of Pecola, a byline that reads "Produced with the participation of" appears. The logo cuts to the Milky Cartoon logo before the underneath byline appears.
  • Some shows such as the 3rd season of What About Mimi and Yakkity Yak have the logo cut off after the byline appears.
  • A widescreen version also exists. Seen on season one episodes of RoboRoach on BBC Kids in Canada and season one episodes of Class Of The Titans on Netflix.
  • On Bakugan Battle Brawlers, the logo is stretched in widescreen.
  • On Oliver's Adventures, the logo is stretched.
  • There is one variant which the byline is on the top instead of the bottom.
  • On The Tofus, the logo was seen alongside on a white background with the 2002-2008 France 3 logo and the Jetix logo. Once the end theme of the aforementioned show is finished playing, the three logos fade out for the SIP Animation logo to animate.

FX/SFX: The lines forming the logo. This was done at Cuppa Coffee Animation.

Music/Sounds: The show's end theme, sometimes merged with the sounds of a cartoony jingle and a popping sound as the "Chiclet" jumps out as the full 3D CG rendered version. Sometimes, only the sound effects are heard. On Angela Anaconda, we hear Angela herself laughing over the logo.

Availability: Common; seen on practically anything pre-2007 on Teletoon in Canada. In the United States, it is seen on shows such as Angela Anaconda on Fox Family in 1998-2002 (now Freeform), Maggie & the Ferocious Beast, and Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends (first two seasons only, Treehouse TV produced the series from 2006 to 2007, its final season) on Nick Jr., Pecola, Rescue Heroes, Marvin The Tap-Dancing Horse (all on Qubo), and Gerald McBoing Boing on Boomerang. In the past, this logo was very common and appeared on Braceface on Fox Family (now Freeform), What's With Andy on ABC Family (now Freeform) and Toon Disney, Totally Spies on ABC Family and Cartoon Network, Yakkity Yak, My Dad The Rockstar (both on Nicktoons Network), and seasons 1-2 of 6teen on TeenNick and Cartoon Network. Strangely, 2007-2009 episodes of Bakugan (seen in the past on Cartoon Network) have this logo along with 2008 episodes of Chaotic (seen in the past on The CW4Kids and Cartoon Network). Often followed by the YTV logo or the Nelvana logo. The production version wasn't introduced until 2001, debuting on Undergrads. Prior to that, the logo was only shown as an in-credit version.

Logo: On a blue/white gradient background, the new Teletoon logo can be seen unfolded in gold, which is "TELETOON" in a haphazardly sized and shaped font, with the raised tops again on the E's. Below it is "Original Production" in a black font. The logo constantly shines throughout and is also tilted up at a upwards angle.

  • There is a longer version where a yellow tornado quickly zooms out and spins, ejecting out "Original Production" before forming the background and text. It rests at a angle before shifting into position.
  • Another version starts when the letters stop in place.
  • On French dubs of their shows, the "Original Production" text is changed to "Production originale".
  • There's a version with the still 2007-2011 Teletoon logo (which is the same text as this logo in orange, but folded into a corner shape on a blue outline of it) on a black background. Only seen on early Bakugan Battle Brawlers season 1 episodes.

FX/SFX: The text shining. For the longer version, the tornado. None for the black background variant.

Music/Sounds: The show's end theme, although the longer version of this logo has an explosion sound, followed by a distorted choir, quick record scratching sounds (think the PolyGram Video "BANG!" logo), a blingy guitar note and a distorted "BONG!".

Music/Sound Variant: On My Life Me, a rock guitar note is held over the logo.

Availability: Common; seen on all pre-2011 programming on the Teletoon network in Canada. In the United States, it can be seen on 6teen, Stoked, and the Total Drama series, all on Cartoon Network (which follows after the Nelvana logo from 2004 that is shown only on 6teen), Jimmy Two-Shoes on Disney XD and Spliced on Qubo, among other shows. This can be additionally seen on 2007-2011 episodes of Johnny Test. The longer version is rare and is only seen on Canadian reruns of Johnny Test and some other shows as well (for example, it was seen on Dating Guy when aired in Russia). The second version appears on 2010-2011 episodes of the aforementioned show and My Babysitter's a Vampire. The My Life Me variant can be seen on the aforementioned show on PBJ in the United States.
It was last seen on the Stoked series finale "Grom Fest", which premiered in Canada on January 26, 2013.

Editor's Note: Stokedactually used this logo until January 2013. While Australia finished the show in April 2011, Canada took two-and-a-half years, from September 2010 until January 2013, to complete the second season. Stoked never saw a season 2 release in the United States. Only the first season was shown on Cartoon Network (which airedStoked in the United States) from July 2009 until July 2010.

Logo: On a yellow gradient background, the Teletoon logo from before is seen in yellow with white text. Here, the text appears to be refined and flatter. It quickly rotates to left, jittering a bit to reveal a flat surface with "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION" on it in white. The logo quickly rotates back to the right, jittering once more.

  • 2011-2015: (Bylineless)
  • 2015-2016: "A CORUS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY" (English) or "UNE SOCIETE DE CORUS ENTERTAINMENT" (French) with "CORUS" being the then-current Corus logo.
  • 2016- : "A Corus. COMPANY" (English)or "UNE PROPRIETE DE Corus." (French) with "Corus." being the new and current Corus logo.

  • On the French dubs of their shows, the "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION" text is changed to "PRODUCTION ORIGINALE"'. There are also lines above the E's since 2014.
  • There's also a French version for the Corus byline variant. The logo on this variant looks also enhanced.
  • There is also an extended version which starts with the block inflating first before the letters jump onto it. The logo continues as normal.
  • There's also a warpspeed variant of the extended logo.

FX/SFX: The logo flipping.

Music/Sounds: Two lasers sounds when the logo flips followed by a choir between the lasers sounds. In other cases, the ending theme of the show, or none.

Availability: Current. Appears on any newer Teletoon show in Canada. In the USA, this logo appears on some shows such as the season 6 of Johnny Test on Boomerang, Grojband on Cartoon Network, My Babysitter's a Vampire on Disney Channel and Camp Lakebottom on Disney XD. Strangely, the English Original Production logo appears on the French dubs of the Inspector Gadget CGI series, and season one episodes ofSuperNoobs (with the Corus byline).

Editor's Note: Supernoobs moved to Family Channel as of season 2.
