1st Logo (1983-1986, November 17, 1994)

Logo: On a dark blue space background that zooms away slowly, we see "MADE FOR VIDEO!", tilted, colored orange, and against some stripes. It "rolls" backward, and the title logo for the special rotates into place, colored lime green. "Produced for" appears below, then it fades out as the title rotates away, making room for a flying Disney Channel logo (in blue) on top and a flying Walt Disney Home Video logo in red on the bottom, with the word "and" fading in.

FX/SFX: Basic 80s animation done on Quantel Paintbox and Ampex Digital Optics "ADO".

Music/Sounds: A slightly different re-orchestration of the fanfare from the "Neon Mickey" Walt Disney Home Entertainment logo composed and performed by Buddy Baker.

Availability: Rare. This logo was seen on video releases of specials originally produced for the Disney Channel, along with VHS volumes of Five Mile Creek and Animal Quiz. LP mode reprints of Five Mile Creek from 1994 retain the logo, following the 1990 Buena Vista Home Video logo.

Editor's Note: This is the only logo on the page to not be a closing logo. The Disney Channel itself doesn't have a closing logo for its original programming until 1995 with the next logo.

2nd Logo (1995-1997)

Nickname: "The Dullsney Channel"

Logo: On a black background, we see the words "The DiSNEY Channel" with "DiSNEY" in Walt Disney's signature font and the rest in the Times New Roman font.

Variant: A version exists with an "In Association With" byline above the logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare. It was seen on some episodes of Groundling Marsh, which is pretty hard to find. It might be seen on the Lyrick Studios VHS releases of the series, but it's unlikely. The "IAW" byline can be found on the show Movie Surfers.

Editor's Note: A boring, simplistic logo. Considering that it was only used for two years, it is likely a placeholder.

3rd Logo (1997-2000)

Nicknames: "Dancing Mickey", "Mickey Television Tube"

Logo: Over a background of claymated concentric circles coming from the center, we see Mickey Mouse in his 1930s design dancing inside the Disney Channel logo of the era that features a black television set with Mickey Mouse ears at the top, with the white Disney logo inside and "CHANNEL" below. Sometimes, the white "In Association with" text is shown above, set in Triplex Sans, and sometimes, the background pattern varies.

Trivia: The animation of Mickey Mouse dancing is taken from the Disney cartoon Thru the Mirror (1936). The alternate purple Mickey animation is taken from Mickey's Follies (1929). Also, this logo and many of its variants were designed and produced at Lee Hunt Associates, Cuppa Coffee, and English Marshall Pockett.

Variants:

  • In later years, the website URL "www.disney.com" is seen below.
  • On season two of Bug Juice, the first two seasons of So Weird, and all Disney Channel Original Movies from 1998-2000, the background is a blue aurora that almost appears to be swirling with white sparks coming from behind the logo like a burst of fireworks and a purple aurora blurry ring.
  • Some co-produced series would carry the text "In Association With" above the logo.
  • On Zoog Disney, Mickey is replaced with Browser.
  • There is a variant where the background is a Columbia Pictures 1976 "Sunburst"-like background and a dark red banner reading "Vault Disney" is seen above the logo, which has the word "CHANNEL" below. An alternate Mickey is also used here, in which he's outlined entirely in purple and does a different dance animation.
    • On the first three episodes of Bug Juice, the logo is big without the outline, and the words are black in a different font.
  • Sometimes (especially in the first year of the logo), the word "CHANNEL" can't be seen.
  • On early episodes of Disney Channel in Concert, there is a variant in which is on a purple background with a texture similar to fabric with four yellow circles near the Disney Channel logo. The alternative purple Mickey animation is also used here, and the word "CHANNEL" is also in a different font.
  • One variant had a different Mickey animation (also from Thru the Mirror) in which he's wearing a top hat and balancing a cane (possibly a match) on his nose. The background for this variant was a series of black outlined overlapping circles, which came in white, yellow, or aqua-green color.
  • On newer prints of Disney Channel movies from the era, the logo is zoomed in to 16:9.

FX/SFX: The animating background and Mickey Mouse dancing. Very good CGI.

Music/Sounds: A synth-disco jingle, based on Disney Channel's old jingle at the time, or the end theme of the show or TV movie.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On Playhouse Disney shows, a xylophone arrangement of the theme is used instead.
  • On season two of Bug Juice, some episodes of The Making Of... , and several DCOMs like Can of Worms and The Color of Friendship, there is a tribal arrangement of the theme.
  • The "Vault Disney" version has an upbeat, jazzy rendition of the theme (which was also used on "coming up next" bumpers for the block).
  • On Zoog Disney, a techno music followed by the vocals says "Zoogs!" (used for the Zoog Disney bumpers from 1998-2000), with Browser barking.
  • Sometimes, it's silence.

Availability: Rare, but it has become a little easier to find since the launch of Disney+. It appeared on Out of the Box, PB&J Otter, Amazing Animals, Bug Juice, Rolie Polie Olie and Mad Libs. None of these shows are currently rerun, and any shows that had this logo were plastered over with either the 2002 Disney Channel logo or the Playhouse Disney logo on later airings. However, the DVD release of Rolie Polie Olie: Olie's Winter Wonderland, as well as other Playhouse Disney and DCOM releases from the time, have this logo intact. The aurora variant can be seen on some season 1 and 2 episodes of So Weird (most episodes presumably plaster it with the 2002 logo) and Up, Up and Away on Disney+, Halloweentown on the Halloweentown Double Feature DVD, and certain DCOMs on VHS like The Color of Friendship. The "Vault Disney" variant can be found on a Bedknobs and Broomsticks documentary special called Music Magic: The Sherman Brothers, which can be found on the Blu-Ray release of Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The Zoog Disney variant was only seen between shows on the Zoog Disney block at the time. Some DCOMs have the 6th logo or the 7th logo plaster it on their Disney+ prints.

Editor's Note: This logo is a memorable favorite for those who watched Disney Channel programs in the 1990s.

4th Logo (October 20, 1997-April 28, 2006)

Nickname: "The Bear in the Big Blue House Logo"

Logo: We see a still screenshot of the house from Bear in the Big Blue House from the opening credits. At the middle is the text in white reads: "UK version produced by" in Capri Bold font. At the bottom is the Disney Channel International wordmark with "DiSNEY" in the corporate Walt Disney script, at the left, in red with a white shadow, and "Channel" in Globe Gothic Bold Condensed font, at the right, in blue, again with a white shadow, next to the word "DiSNEY". After one second, it fades out to black, seguing into the shorter version of the Shadow Projects logo.

FX/SFX: None, unless you count the logo fading in.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Extinct. Seen on UK prints of Bear in the Big Blue House.

Editor’s Note: None.

5th Logo (June 17, 2000-February 14, 2004)

Nicknames: "The Hip-Hop Logo", "The Zoog Disney Logo", "Mickey Television Tube II", "Grungy Color-Changing Mickey Television Tube", "Psychedelic Disney"

Logo: Over a psychedelic purple background, we see "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" in white. It fades out and zooms in and the Disney Channel logo from last time, in purple, zooms up. "DiSNEY", in the familiar trademark font, pops out of the logo when it stops. Through the remainder, the logo shifts colors and patterns. There is a "ghost" of the logo in front of it.

Variants:

  • On some shows and original movies, it omits the words "IN ASSOCIATION WITH", so we start with the Disney Channel logo zooming in.
  • On French dubs of their shows, the "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text is in French, which says, "EN ASSOCIATION AVEC".
  • A print version of the logo on a white background was spotted on The Santa Clause Brothers.
  • On newer prints of Disney Channel movies from the era, the logo is zoomed in to 16:9.
  • On the Even Stevens season 1 episode "Foodzilla", the logo is darker.

FX/SFX: The logo zooming-in and changing colors. All 2D CGI animation, designed by Colossal Pictures and animated by Tenth Annual Industries.

Music/Sounds: Either the end theme of the show, or a hip-hop/techno fusion jingle containing a male's voice saying "Yeah!", followed by two distorted guitar/record scratches that almost sound like "All right!", "Oh yeah!" or "Star power!". The short version just has the latter half of the "Yeah!" sounder followed by the record scratches.

Music/Sounds Trivia: Portions or rearrangements of the logo's audio can be heard as jingles on Disney Channel's 2000-2002 on-air look, along with some voice overs from Cam Brainard and Liza del Mundo (starting in July 2001).

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On the 2005 Classroom Edition DVD of The Color of Friendship, this logo plasters over the 3rd logo. If you listen closely when the logo cuts to black, you can hear the last note of the tribal arrangement from the previous logo. It has been played fully through the logo when Disney+ prints of it show the logo.
  • On Disney+ prints of the DCOM Zenon: The Sequel, a low pitched version of the 2007 theme is heard. All other audio tracks have the correct 2000 theme, except for the Spanish Latin American audio track, which doesn't use any audio at all.
  • On Disney+ prints of the season 3 premiere of Even Stevens, the theme from the 2002 logo plays out of sync. CBBC reruns and CITV UK airings of this episode has the correct 2000 theme.

Availability: Like before, it's rare, but now slightly easier to find since the launch of Disney+. On television, it very occasionally appeared on sporadic airings of Stepsister from Planet Weird, Lizzie McGuire and Even Stevens on Disney Channel as part of the Disney Replay block, particularly the Lizzie McGuire episode "Night of the Day of the Dead" and the Even Stevens episode "The Thomas Gribalski Affair". Good luck trying to find this on other episodes, as it's plastered over by the 6th and 7th logos. Starting in July 2000, this logo would plaster over the previous logo on Disney Channel shows and movies that featured it. On Disney+, it can be seen on season 2 and the first episode of season 3 of Even Stevens, season 3 of So Weird, and all DCOMs from 2000 to 2002. On Netflix, it used to appear on Cadet Kelly when it was on there back in 2012. On home video, this appears on The Book of Pooh: Fun with Words and Fun with Friends on VHS (and oddly not a Playhouse Disney logo), the Kim Possible episode "Crush" as a bonus feature on the Kim Possible: The Secret Files DVD, Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge on the Halloweentown Double Feature DVD, and DCOMs on VHS from the time. Starting in July 2000, this logo would plaster over the previous logo on Disney Channel shows and movies that featured it. However, it is still found on those said shows when aired on Disney XD Canada and Family Channel respectively. This logo was used in tandem with the 7th logo, as it was seen on the Even Stevens episode "Leavin' Stevens" which aired in June 2003 and The Proud Family episode "Surf and Turf" which aired that same year on Disney Channel. The rest of the episodes of the show on ABC Kids plasters it with the 2002 Disney Channel Originals logo with the same music intact. Surprisingly, this appeared on a 2010s Disney Channel Denmark airing of the That's So Raven episode "Escape Claus", although, that series never aired in the 2000 era. Some DCOMs have the 6th logo or the 7th logo plaster it on their Disney+ prints. This logo is retained on the complete series DVD set of The Proud Family.

Editor's Note: A rather simple logo, but still quite memorable for those who grew up with Disney Channel during this period.

6th Logo (January 7, 2000-November 11, 2002)

Logo: On a white background, we see the Media Merchants logo, with the text "A Production" and "in association with" at the top and bottom of it in whatever language it's being shown on. Below it is the 1997-2003 Disney Channel International wordmark below it (in the same fonts as the 4th logo).

Variants:

  • On segments of the show, it shows the Art Attack logo, French text saying 'est diffusé tous les jours sur' with the 1997-2003 International Disney Channel print logo and the shows website link below it.
  • The main logo was also translated in the localized Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and German versions of the show, respectively.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The same sound from the 1998 Media Merchants logo.

Music/Sounds Variant: Sometimes, the ending theme of the show would play.

Availability: Extremely rare. It's only seen on international localizations of Art Attack during the time period.

Editor's Note: Originally, the logo was believed to be a completely different logo at first, mainly the international splats logo used at the time period, but was however proven to be false.

7th Logo (September 30, 2002-2011)

Nicknames: "The Mickey Head", "Shiny Mickey Head", "The Banner"

Logo: Over a black background, we see blue pixie dust flying from the bottom of the screen to the center, causing a flash that sends several blue Mickey Mouse head outlines towards the viewer as if it explodes like fireworks, which turns the background into a cloudy sky. The pixie dust circles around the flash, which becomes a Mickey Mouse head that happens to be Disney Channel's logo, filled with watery white coloring, a blue outline around it, and the "DiSNEY CHANNEL" text in black with "DiSNEY" in its corporate font. The logo comes closer to the viewer as it wobbles to its normal position on the bottom left as a blue banner reading "OrIGInaL" (set in Placard Bold Condensed, the font used for Disney Channel's graphics since then) in white pops up around the logo. As the logo continues to wobble, the pixie dust moves offscreen, leaving behind a trail of pixie dust. It then reappears and moves from behind the logo to the top, leaving another trail.

Trivia: This logo was based on the intro and bumpers for the Disney Channel Movie programming block from 2002 to 2008.

Variants:

  • There is a more common short version starting with the wobble.
  • On some international prints, the logo fades to the 1998-2006 Buena Vista International logo.
  • On Life with Derek, "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" is above the logo.
  • On U.S airings of Naturally Sadie, "A Decode Entertainment production in association with" is above the logo.
  • A sped-up version of the short version exists.
  • On some Disney Channel Original Movies from 2004-2006 and HD prints of them, the logo is zoomed in.
  • On Disney Channel Live: El concierto, the logo jarringly zooms out to reveal itself animating like usual, and when the logo fades out, it starts to animate in reverse.
  • Disney Channel promos in the early 2000s had the logo on their backgrounds.
  • On some international versions of the original movie Pixel Perfect, the logo isn't only cropped but the colors are brighter than usual.
  • A variant exists where "ORIGINAL" was replaced with "DISNEYCHANNEL.COM". Here, the banner moves slightly different and is placed more lower.
  • On the international versions of Twitches and Buffalo Dreams, as well as some 4:3 Disney Channel Asia prints of High School Musical, the widescreen logo is COMPLETELY cropped to where only the right side of the logo is shown.
  • On Disney Channel UK, there is a version with a copyright notice saying "(C) 2007 Disney Channel UK".
  • On the French dub of The Cheetah Girls 2, the logo is in black and white.
  • On international prints of High School Musical, the logo may be in widescreen and cut very short.
  • On 2006-2009 and Netflix prints of High School Musical, the logo is seen slowing down. and brighter.
  • On the Australian version of As the Bell Rings, the logo was recreated in which the logo is slightly faster, the cloud background is different than the original, and the logo has an extremely cheaper appearance to it (almost as if it was made in Blender in a few minutes).

FX/SFX: Everything in the logo from the flying pixie dust and the flash to the Mickey Mouse outline head popping up. Awesome CGI designed by PMcD Design and animated by Black Logic.

Music/Sounds: Several drumbeats, which segue into a ska punk theme with electric guitars and a horn section, the last four notes of which became Disney Channel's signature jingle. Composed by Tonal Sound and Elias Associates. The tune sounds rather similar to that of "The Impression That I Get" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. There is also a shorter version. Sometimes, it's the closing theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On seasons 2-3 of That's So Raven, we hear the 5th logo's music, except the "Yeah!" is extended. On Hannah Montana, Cory in the House and season 4 of That's So Raven, the short version of the 5th logo's music is used with a piano note at the start.
  • On an online print of the That's So Raven episode "Driven to Insanity", a split second of the 5th logo's music can be heard and it then abruptly cuts to the regular theme of this logo.
  • On the UK version of As the Bell Rings, a ding is heard.

Availability: Uncommon.

  • It appears on reruns of some of Disney Channel's shows from the era. This logo has plastered over the 1999 Disney Channel logo on the first two seasons of So Weird (which is long gone from TV and home video). It still appears on Disney Channel's original movies from 1998-late 2007 when aired on Disney Channel and Disney XD; it plasters the 3rd and 5th logos. Surprisingly, it appears on pre-2008 airings of Playhouse Disney's My Friends Tigger and Pooh.
  • The long variant is extinct. It used to appear before shows on TV until 2006, and iTunes prior to 2010.
  • The version with the copyright notice was seen on Hannah Montana: Live in London and the UK version of As the Bell Rings both on Disney Channel UK.
  • This logo surprisingly plasters the previous logo on later, post-2002 reruns of Even Stevens on Disney Channel. It has recently been spotted on June 2018 airings of Lilo & Stitch: The Series on Disney XD USA (likely due to using 4:3 masters instead of the 16:9 ones). It was also spotted on a French printing of Twitches Too. On Disney+ prints of select DCOMs from the 90s and early 2000s, it plasters the 3rd and 5th logos.
  • It can also be found on the 2007-2009 Disney Channel and 2003-2006 ABC Kids airings of The Proud Family, which plastered the 2000 Logo.
  • The DisneyChannel.com variant was seen on a November 2004 airing of Mulan as an accidental intermission bumper and also some Disney Channel promos at the time.
  • Strangely, this logo can be seen on the ABC Kids airings of Power Rangers S.P.D.

Editor's Note: This is a memorable logo for those who grew up with Disney Channel in the 2000s, thanks to its omnipresence.

8th Logo (August 9, 2007-February 17, 2012, 2015-2016)

Nicknames: "The Mickey Head II", "Shiny Mickey Head II", "The Banner II"

Logo: On a twinkling blue background, a blue ribbon appears and turns into the Mickey Mouse head from the last logo, but with a bit of a difference. The "OrIGInaL" banner pops up under the Disney Channel name, and doesn't wobble, so it comes to a complete stop. Instead of the water-like substance from the last logo, the inside of the Mickey Head has what appears to be a weird, beige semi-solid that morphs (almost like oatmeal).

Variants:

  • There is a prototype version of this logo that was either still with no banner, or cut short. It was only seen on Twitches Too, and later prints of High School Musical 2 respectively. However, this logo "officially" debuted on January 25, 2008.
  • A widescreen version exists, with blue lines sandwiched on the left and right respectively for 4:3 shows. On the 2008 Disney Channel Games, it disappears, causing the Disney copyright notice to appear.
  • An alternate widescreen version exists, in which the Disney Channel logo is on the far left side of the screen. In this version, there's no blue lines, and more of the background can be seen.
  • On The Cheetah Girls: One World, the "OrIGInaL" banner is absent.
  • On 16 Wishes, the logo has more noticeable differences like more of the background can be seen and thus causing the Mickey Mouse head to be smaller. The "OrIGInaL" banner can be seen more and just simply slides up, and the words on it are smaller. Overall, this variant looks incredibly cheap.
  • On current prints of Tiger Cruise, a longer version exists where the ribbon appears in the sky and the camera moves down, going to the normal logo's animation.
  • On a print of the Kim Possible episode "The Big Job", an even longer version exists in which on a black and blue gradient background, with stars on the left side of the screen, the blue ribbon hits the near-center of the screen causing a bright star and flash to appear making the other little stars more detailed and the cloudy background to appear, going to the variant above animation.
  • On the 2009 special Disney's Friends for Change, the "OrIGInaL" banner is absent and the logo is in widescreen.
  • On some Disney Channel Original Movies (Geek Charming and Radio Rebel are some examples), the logo is cut short to the "OrIGInaL" banner appearing on the Disney Channel logo and is in slow-motion.
  • On CITV airings of various Disney Channel shows, the logo is still, and the words "A DISNEY CHANNEL PRODUCTION" is above the logo. It uses the music from the last logo.
  • On one occasion, there is a "yellow" variant, in which the Mickey head, the "Disney Channel" text, and the "OrIGInaL" banner are yellow, and the sky backdrop is dark red with black clouds shifting forward.

FX/SFX: The ribbon drawing itself, and the banner dropping down. Great CGI designed by Mary Snyder and animated by New Wave Entertainment.

Music/Sounds: This logo had many music variants:

  • A breakbeat with a short techno redoing of the Disney Channel jingle. (Also used as promo music at the time)
  • A sustained guitar note, which is actually taken from the last few seconds of the closing theme to Princess Protection Program.
  • The 2002 theme by Tonal Sound and Elias Associates.
  • The short version of the 2002 theme.
  • The 2000 "Yeah! All right!" theme.
  • The short version of the aforementioned theme.
  • Synthesized Disney Channel jingle that was used as promo music as well.
  • The closing theme of the show.
  • On one print of Lilo & Stitch: The Series, the Walt Disney Television theme finishes over it.
  • The yellow variant uses the promo's music accompanied by a narrator saying "All new Disney Channel Original Movie" over it.

Availability: Pretty common.

  • Preserved on most prints of Disney Channel shows and Original Movies from the era, and even plasters over previous logos on newer prints of older shows and DCOMs. Seen on Disney Channel shows made from 2007 to early 2012, starting with Season 2 of Phineas & Ferb and Fish Hooks, as well as early episodes of Good Luck Charlie, A.N.T. Farm and Shake It Up!, among others. The yellow variant appears on the trailer for Twitches Too. Whichever DCOM on Disney+ from the early 2000s, it plasters the 5th logo. Surprisingly, it appeared on a rare print of Special Agent Oso.
  • It was quietly retired in 2012, with the DCOM Radio Rebel, and shows such as Gravity Falls, Austin & Ally, Dog with a Blog, and newer episodes of shows that previously used this logo are no longer using it.
  • The "Yeah! All right!" variant can be found on current prints of the DCOMs Quints and The Ultimate Christmas Present. The short version can be heard on early episodes of Hannah Montana Forever.
  • The 2002 theme variant can be found on season 3 and early season 4 episodes of Wizards of Waverly Place and current prints of Zenon The Zequel, and it surprisingly appeared on a rare print of Bunnytown. The short version can be heard on the earliest episodes of Jonas.
  • The widescreen version without the blue bars can be seen on widescreen prints of High School Musical 2 as well as one print of Lilo & Stitch: The Series and HD prints of Kim Possible.
  • Strangely, this can be seen on Disney Channel Spain prints of Stuck in the Middle, K.C Undercover, Best Friends Whenever, Dog With a Blog, Jessie, Liv and Maddie, Elena of Avalor and Girl Meets World, but US prints of these shows don't have any Disney Channel logo at all.
  • This logo is the last to be used on any Disney Channel originals. Starting in early 2012 as mentioned before (except for any custom follow-ups used internationally and award show uses), no Disney Channel original used a Disney Channel Originals logo ever since, including current shows on the channel such as Sydney to the Max, Raven's Home, Coop and Cami, and others.

Editor's Note: The animation in this logo feels much more stiff and less fluid than the previous logos, but it’s still a memorable logo for those who grew up watching Disney Channel during the late 2000s. The yellow variant is a long lost legend to most people.

9th Logo (October 17, 2014- )

Disney Channel Originals Logo (2014).jpg

Logo: It's just the same as the 2014 Disney Channel Original Movies logo, except the banner just says "ORIGINAL".

FX/SFX: Same as the 2014 Disney Channel Original Movies logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 2014 Disney Channel Original Movies logo.

Music/Sounds Variant: On Tangled: The Series (also known as Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure), a few whooshes are heard.

Availability: Scarce. Seen on Un, Dos, ¡Chef!. It was also seen on Disney Channel Spain airings of Bunk'd and Tangled: The Series. This is so far only used in Spain, and is currently unknown if it would be in use in other countries.

Editor's Note: It is a nice attempt at making a logo that should be in use on original programming, but it was (so far) only used exclusively in Spain, and that is a real shame.

10th Logo (June 22-July 20, 2015)

Logo: On a black background, the 2014 Disney Channel logo (minus ''CHANNEL'') rapidly zoom into view, as the letters of ''DISNEY'' float on top and settle from left to right on the blue backing. ''CHANNEL'' appears, also from left to right, below. The logo shines as white sparks fly around it. A byline appears below: ''©2016 The Walt Disney Company Limited. All Rights Reserved''

FX/SFX: The logo popping into view, simplistic CGI.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare. This was spotted on First Class Chefs: Family Style. It originally aired on the now-defunct British-Irish Disney Channel and was cancelled after only one season. However, the show is currently available for viewing on Disney+.

Editor's Note: Although the show that has this logo aired in 2015, this has a 2016 copyright date for some reason.

11th Logo (September 23, 2016-November 3, 2017)

Logo: Over the end credits of The Lodge, the 2014 Disney Channel logo forms, with the white text drawing in first as the blue backing covers it, filling like water or gelatin, as well as two yellow lens flares. Once it is fully formed, streaks of water shoot from the sides and top of the logo.

FX/SFX: The logo forming.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Very rare. Seen only on The Lodge. The show originally aired on the now-defunct British-Irish Disney Channel but the first season did air on the American network. The entire series is currently available for viewing on Disney+.

Editor's Note: Another in-credit logo, nothing much to say.

12th Logo (April 30, 2017, June 23, 2018)

Nickname: "Social Media"

Logo: On a pink background with outline of the dot of the "i" in the Disney Channel logo engrained, with little emojis floating on the bottom screen going right to left, a light blue tab with the dot of the "i" comes out and it becomes larger, turns yellow, and it now contains the 2014 Disney Channel logo in purple. The background becomes light blue while the tab then shrinks slightly and moves slightly to the left and a large purple tab with the words "ORIGINAL" in yellow comes out and goes to the right. The two tabs move down slightly and the background becomes gray.

FX/SFX: Everything, which is based off the 2017-2019 Disney Channel branding.

Music/Sounds: A techno remix of the Disney Channel theme which somewhat sounds like a slight remix of the synthesized tune of the 8th logo.

Availability: Very rare. It was seen on the 2017 and 2018 editions of the Radio Disney Music Awards, which like most annual award shows, have only aired once or twice on TV and never again. The 2018 show, however, is available on YouTube.

Editor's Note: While a nice logo to fit with the 2017-2019 branding of the channel, it was wasted thanks to it only being on annual award shows, rather than actual television shows.

13th Logo (December 14, 2018-February 22, 2020)

Nickname: "101 Dalmatian Street"

Logo: At night, we see a view of the house that is with the address of 101 Dalmatian Street. It is seen in a neighborhood next to two other buildings. The camera then moves to the city of Camden Town. Below the city is a purple version of the 2014 Disney Channel logo. During the forming a copyright stamp is seen below. The camera then stops moving when the Disney Channel logo is formed.

FX/SFX: The camera moving and the logo forming.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme to the show.

Availability: Rare. This logo is only used as an exclusive to 101 Dalmatian Street, which originally aired on the now-defunct British-Irish Disney Channel. In the United States, the series is available on Disney+ and formerly Disney XD and DisneyNOW.

Editor's Note: A nice custom logo to one of channel's shows. Too bad the show didn't air on the American channel.

14th Logo (June 16, 2019-)

Nickname: "Item Age"

Logo: In the center of a mostly blue background, with some light purple on the left side of the screen and some weird shapes all around, there's a yellow circle with a stylized Mickey Mouse hand giving a "thumbs up" sign. Suddenly, the circle and the hand zooms out to reveal the 2014 Disney Channel logo in blue, with the words having a blue-white gradient color. The word, "ORIGINAL" in a white crude font with pencil shading appears one-by-one with the letters zooming in and out rapidly. While that is happening, the background becomes purple with a stylized Mickey Mouse head (in the same style as the "i" in "Disney" in Disney Channel's logo) showing the blue background. All around the screen, we see various items like a lightning bolt and a Mickey Mouse ear hat.

FX/SFX: Everything, which is based off the 2019 Disney Channel branding.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the special or the show. On BIA, it has a 2-note theme with the sparkling sounds on it.

Availability: Uncommon. It first appeared on the 2019 Radio Disney Music Awards, and is later seen on the Argentine show BIA. It also appeared on the Disney Channel special event Descendants: The Royal Wedding, and is currently in use on the Disney Channel Original Series, Disney's Magic Bake-Off, bringing a "revival" to a Disney Channel Original logo on Disney Channel Original Series.

Editor's Note: Another custom logo for one of the channel's brands.

15th Logo (September 25, 2020)

Logo: Over the end credits of Miraculous World: New York - United Heroez, we just see a print logo of the 2017 Disney Channel logo along with other logos.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme to the special.

Availability: Extremely rare. Was only seen on Miraculous World: New Work - United Heroez.

Editor's Note: This is just boring and bland when compared to the previous logos. However, it's just an in-credit logo, so it's not supposed to be much anyway.
