Background

Behaviour Interactive was founded in 1997 after the merger of Megatoon and Multimedia Interactive, both of them owned by Malofilm. In 2000, the company was renamed A2M (Artificial Mind & Movement) but was reverted back in 2010 due to overcomplexity and the fact that "A2M" can be interpreted as an inappropriate meaning. Behaviour is the largest independent Canadian video game studio (based in Montreal) working mainly on licensed titles.

2nd Logo (2000-2010) (as A2M / Artificial Mind & Movement)

Logo: The logo looks like a custom circular figure with the name "A2M" below. There are many variants for each game. Early games have the full name below, several later games for portable platforms also have the full name in two lines, placed right to the figure.

Ed puts up the logo, in the process snagging Eddy on the circle. Ed runs back with the other half of the circle, with Edd/Double D already stuck on this half.Ed spins the logo, causing Edd and Eddy to spin with i. Both of them are flung off and Eddy crashes into the camera causing a fade to white, After it fades, the completed logo with A2M is shown as the circle slows down. The logo keeps on spinning until it slows down.
  • 2005: Ed, Edd 'n Eddy: The Mis-Ed-Ventures (Game Boy Advance version): A jawbreaker machine is shown. The handle of it clicks once, An average Ed Edd 'n Eddy oversized jawbreaker comes out of it and smashes into the camera.

3rd Logo (2010-2013)

Logo: We see many blue-colored transparent crystals quickly panning over a dark space, showing the glowing logo among them, which looks like big bE and "HAVIOUR" below it. The crystals move further and hide the logo from view, the logo fades out at the moment.

FX/SFX: The crystals moving and the logo shining.

4th Logo (2013-present)

Logo: On a sky blue and white background, we see a big black box with a big white "bE" on it. It tips itself down to "chase"the letters in "HAVIOUR", which are also white and running away from the box. The box then gains speed as the box squishes the letters, and we see all black for a bit, then the box flips and flies back to reveal the logo on the box behind what is now a completely white background.

FX/SFX: The letters running, the box moving and flipping and the box flying.

Music/Sounds: Stomping sounds are heard when the box chases the letters, when squeak when they run. A big stomp is heard when the box squishes the letters. Then two cello notes are heard as the box reveals the logo.

Variant: On SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge (2013), the background has a black and white border gradient.

Availability: Common. Seen on Wipeout: Create and Crash (2013), SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge (2013), and all new games by Behaviour since 2013.
