Background

9 Story Media Group (formerly 9 Story Entertainment) is a Canadian animation studio founded in September 2002 by Steven Jarosz and Vince Commisso, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. On October 10, 2014, it was re-branded as 9 Story Media Group, soon after Neil Court became an equity investor in the company along with Zelnick Media.

1st Logo (2002-2007)

9 Story Entertainment Logo (2002).jpg

Logo: On a teal background, an white abstract "9" draws in. Multiple blue 9's of various size and shape then draw in, forming a circle. As this happens, the same "9" then forms a cote-out in the circle and "9 STORY" draws in with a similar effect. "E N T E R T A I N M E N T" then appears below.

Variants:

  • A still version exists, with the logo smaller and either being on the teal background, a sky blue background, or in-credit.
  • There is also another in-credit variant seen on Skyland where the 9 is white.
  • A warp-speed version exists.

FX/SFX: The logo getting drawn.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Can be found on season 3 of Max & Ruby, Skyland on Teletoon and Peep and the Big Wide World on TVO Kids and PBS Kids.

Editor's Note: None.


2nd Logo (2006-2013)

Logo: Same as before, but the 9 is smaller and in blue, but becomes the same after it fills in. However, the text "9story" in Times New Roman, draws in with an outline then fills in with orange, being much larger than before. "ENTERTAINMENT" wipes in below in blue.

Variants:

  • On Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, the logo can be seen next to the Out of the Blue Enterprises logo.
  • On Wild Kratts, the logo can be seen on an orange background on top of the Kratt Brothers Company logo.
  • On Best Ed, the logo is in a white box on the background of the credits.
  • Like the previous logo, it has a warp-speed version.
  • A rare version exists where the logo looks like the next logo, but with the 9 taking the place of the next logo's 9. Its also in warp-speed.

FX/SFX: Same as the 1st logo, as well as the text drawing and wiping in.

Music/Sounds: A whistle tune, or the end theme of the show.

Availability: Common. Can be seen on Wild Kratts, Futz!, Best Ed, seasons 4-5 of Max & Ruby, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Survive This, season 16 of Arthur, among others.

Editor's Note: None.


3rd Logo (2013-2018)

Logo: On a white background, we see a cartoon hand holding a paintbrush with blue paint on it. The hand then paints the same "9" as before, but redesign to no longer have the spiral on the end. The words "story" and "ENTERTAINMENT" fade in and in the same font as the previous logo, but with the colors changed. The latter word shines.

Variants:

  • Starting in 2014, MEDIA GROUP is in place of ENTERTAINMENT, and in a different font.
  • A still version exists, which sometimes slowly zooms in.
  • On Wild Kratts, the same variant from before is used, but the"ENTERTAINMENT" text is blue.

FX/SFX: The hand painting the 9.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Common. Can be seen on later episodes of Wild Kratts, Peg + Cat Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, seasons 16-18 of Arthur, all on PBS, among others. Please don't expect to see the old 9SMG logo on Top Wing, which could maybe suppose to be replaced with the last logo in later seasons and episodes of the latter show.

Editor's Note: None.


4th Logo (2018-)

Logo: On a white background, the new logo for 9 Story Media Group quickly zooms out. It consists of 9 triangles forming a abstract "9", with 3 of each in a different shade of blue. Below, "9 S T O R Y" can be seen in a different font than before, with "MEDIA GROUP" below. The logo slowly backs away as the "9" and "9 S T O R Y" shine.

Variant: An in-credit version exists with lighter colors.

FX/SFX: The logo zooming out.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show or a shining sound when the logo shines.

Availability: Current. It appears in-credit on Let's Go Luna! on PBS and TVO Kids and animated on Charlie's Colorforms City on Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. It may probably appear on future content.

Editor's Note: None.
