Noggin IDs

From CLG Wiki

Noggin Chia (1999-2002)

Logo: On a farm background complete with a cow and a house and flowers and soil and grass, we see a redhead with the Noggin sign as he wakes up and an eye pokes out of the O. A watering can pours on his head, and grass and flowers grow on his head. Then we hear "Noggin!" and then a cow falls down.

FX: The grass growing, the cow falling down, which was produced at WildBrain in San Francisco, CA.

Music/Sounds: First a rooster crows, then a 7 note violin tune, then we hear a deep voice say "Noggin" followed by a 3 note guitar chord, then some tinkles, and then the 7-note tune again, and then we hear a 3 note violin tune and then we hear Noggin! again and then a cow moos.

Availability: Extinct on TV.

Editor's Note: None.


Noggin Gold (1999-2001)

Logo: TBA

Variant: There's a short version that was used as the outro.

FX/SFX: Clay animation

Music/Sounds: A disco theme, which sounds very similar to a Bee Gees song.

Music/Sounds/Variant: There is a variant that has a different disco theme with a male announcer (sounding similar to radio comedian Marshall Efron) saying "Get down, get funky, with your bad self. The music's old, but hey, its gold." along with a female chorus saying "Noggin Gold!" with the man laughing. For the outro variant, the announcer says "Keep on goofing with Noggin" along with the same female chorus.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

Germs (1999-2001)

Logo: On a blue background, we see a bunch of bacteria and germs. Some of them are eating an amoeba, and some of them are moving. After a few seconds, we zoom out to the noggin logo on an orange/yellow background with green skin, chicken pox on its face, a thermometer in its mouth, and an ice bag on its head (that has the bacteria in it). The noggin logo's nose then drips snot, and sniffs it back in.

FX/SFX: Clay animation for the germs, and 2D animation for the Noggin logo.

Music/Sounds: TBA.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: The germs moving and talking may get to some, especially for people with mysophobia, the fear of contamination and germs.

Made for Noggin, By Nick Jr. (1999-2009)

This Show is made for Noggin, by Nick Jr (1999)

Logo: On a purple/white gradient background, we see the Noggin logo with nothing at the top. Suddenly, blue and orange blobs of clay fly to the logo, making the Noggin logo surprised. Hands come out and, form the clay blobs into two ducks, with "NICK" on the orange clay and "JR" on the blue clay. The logo smiles.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Music/Sounds: A bouncy tambourine tune with glob/swapping sounds and an announcer saying "This show is made for Noggin, by Nick Jr".

Music/Sounds Variant: From 1999-2002, it was a xylophone tune with a young girl announcer saying "This show is made just for you, by the big Noggin and Nick Jr.". There is also a quacking noise when the ducks appear.

Availability: Extinct. Seen at the beginning of all Noggin shows that aired on Nick Jr as well. When the Nick Jr. block disappeared in 2009, this bumper was retired.

Editor's Note: None.


Made by the big Noggins at CTW (1999-2003)

Logo: TBA

Variants:

  • There is a later version with the Sesame Workshop "House of Boredom" instead of the CTW "The Bouncing Letters" logo.
  • There is a variant of the Sesame Workshop Variant where the background is green.

FX/SFX: 2D animation for the Noggin logo, and the footage of the CTW/Sesame Workshop logo.

Music/Sounds: A hip-hop beat along with a girl saying "This show was made by the big Noggins at CTW, you know, the Children's Television Workshop!". The green background version of the Sesame Workshop variant has a short version of the Noggin Chia music with a boy saying "This show was made by the big Noggins at Sesame Workshop". Another version of the Sesame Workshop variant has a different girl saying the same line.

Availability: Extinct. Only appeared on Sesame Street Unpaved, a syndication package of episodes from the first 20 seasons of Sesame Street. For more information, click these links.

Lever (1999-2002)

Noggin ID - Lever (1999)

Logo: We see a lever in a room. A girl comes by and says "hmm". Then, she takes her head off and her body jumps on her head. Her body pulls the lever, and a Noggin picture frame appears.

FX/SFX: A mix of 2D and cut-out animation, produced at Fablevision in Boston, MA.

Music/Sounds: The girl saying "hmm", followed by a pop when the girl's head falls off, and then an 8-note guitar tune and the girl saying "Use your Noggin!". A robot (the same one from the first Noggin Originals logo) then says "noggin".

Availability: Extinct on TV.

Editor's Note: The girl taking her head off could creep out some people.

Running (1999-2001?)

Logo: TBA

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

Rollercoaster (1999 - 2002)

Noggin Rollercoaster (higher resolution)

Logo: On a starry purple background, we first look at the skies before the camera moves into a very psychedelic-looking amusement park-like area with flying atom shapes with lights coming out of them and a strange orb with lights also coming out of it before going onto a roller coaster, in which the camera moves on it at lightning fast speed. The camera swervesall around the track until it reaches the orb, in which it flies over and then dive bombs into a 2001: A Space Odyssey-like tunnel in which it flies out the "O" in the Noggin text before turning into an eye. As we zoom out, we see that the area was the cap and an orange face spinning. As we go into a comfortable position, the cap closes up, still showing lights, and the face stops spinning, then smiles.

FX/SFX: The camera moving with the coaster, and the head spinning. 3D animation.

Music/Sounds: An amusement park-like tune, with screams and chimes. Once we are off the track, everything stops. Then once we enter the hole, a loud whoosh is heard, then, the end of the tune plays, with some laughter once we see the Noggin logo.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: Good animation, but it probably isn't suited for a channel aimed at little children.


Soup (1999 - 2004)

Logo: On a pink background, we see a boy in a boat. When we zoom out, we see the edges of a bowl, then we see the bowl on top of the Noggin logo. The boy says "Letters! And numbers! Soup!" Then a drop of soup drops and the Noggin logo licks it.

FX/SFX: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: A boat rowing, then after we zoom out, the boy saying "Letters! And numbers! Soup!" then an echo. Finally, a licking sound.

Availability: Extinct, was seen on some Noggin airings of Gullah Gullah Island prior to 2004, plastering the 1990 Nickelodeon Studios logo. When it came back to the network in 2007, this logo was deleted, and the 1990 NS logo was used.

Editor's Note: None.

NOTE: On April 1st 2002, the whole Noggin channel was repurposed to aim at preschoolers instead of preteens. This changed its programming to have more preschool-aimed shows (Oobi, Play with Me Sesame, etc.), and rebranded its look. All ID's from February 2, 1999 to March 31, 2002 (with expectation of the "Made for Noggin, by Nick Jr." ID, which lasted till 2009) became extinct, and were replaced with new bumpers to fit the preschool demographic.
