1st Logo (1998-2006?)

Nicknames: "The Bag" "Water Bag" "The Sliding Bag"

Logo: On a brown background, a grocery bag filled with water (with a spotlight following it) drops down and slides to the middle of the screen, then does a pose. As this is happening, the water drips out of the bag. Below the logo are these words:

A BROWN BAG FILMS PRODUCTION FOR R.T.É. COPYRIGHT 1998 in white. The water then disappears before the logo ends.

FX/SFX: The bag moving and the water dripping out of the bag.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Only known to be seen on Why?, which airs on Smile, and can also be found on YouTube.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (2000-2008)

Nickname: "The Bag II"

Logo: In a blue circle, we see the same bag from the last logo, but standing up. Another shape is part of it. This word is inside the shape:

B R O W N® B A G FILMS

Variants:

  • On I'm an Animal, the logo is in-credit.
  • On Give Up Yer Aul Sins, the logo is placed on a white background, the bag is black, and there is no shape.

3rd Logo (2007-)

Nickname: "The Bag III"

Logo: On a white background, there is a brown rectangle in the middle of the screen. A paper plane files on to the left side (next to the words) and turns in to the bag from the 2 previous logos. At the same time, these words flip in:

BROWN®

BAG FILMS

on the right side, both in an Impact font. "BROWN BAG" is in white, while "FILMS" is in brown on top of a smaller grey rectangle.

Variants:

  • There is a short version which starts with the words flipping in. The logo is bigger here as well.
  • On some of their shows, the logo is still and in-credit.
  • There is also an animated in-credit variant.
  • Starting in 2014, "WE LOVE ANIMATION" was placed under the logo.

FX/SFX: The company name being flipped onto the brown rectangle and the grocery bag opening.

Music/Sounds: The normal version has light "thunk" sounds followed by children laughing. The short version just has the "thunk" sounds.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Sometimes, the opening/ending theme plays over the logo.
  • On some episodes of Doc McStuffins, the sounds are quieter.

Availability: Common. Can be seen on some of the videos on their YouTube channel. The short version is seen on some of their shows such as Henry Hugglemonster, Doc McStuffins and others. The in-credit still version can be found on many shows, such as Bing and Octonauts which are both on CBeebies, Vampirina on Disney Junior, Nella the Princess Knight on Nickelodeon, as well as 9 Story-produced shows from the company, etc.
