1st Logo (September 14, 2001-March 21, 2006)
Nicknames: "Jay the Weak Jet Plane", "90s Planet", "Cartoon Airplane Passing Mars" "Universal ripoff"
Logo: We see the 2001-2004 Bliniversal Cartoons logo proceeding as normal, but without "BLINIVERSAL" coming from behind and circling the globe. While the globe zooms out and moves into its center position, a cartoon version of the biplane from the 2000's Bliniversal logo (which is a yellow-orange biplane with red face and light blue wheels), appears from behind the globe and flies around it and turning through with his tongue sticking out, leaving a trail of smoke which turns into "BLINIVERSAL", in its similar corporate font from the 2004-2009 Universal Pictures logo with its gradient texture on it and is stretched up vertically (with the "R" backwards, reading "BLINIVEЯSAL"). Then the plane enters the bottom of the globe and flies through it, but doesn't turn this time leaving another trail of smoke, which also turns into "CARTOON STUDIOS" in rainbow colors and in a Stencil font. As the globe and the words are in position, the plane comes into the middle of the globe and shockingly stops. Then he takes a few steps back and realizes the "R" in "BLINIVERSAL" is backwards, and giggles for a bit, and flips it around, causing it to spin briefly and making it in the correct way. Then he floats and looks at the audience.and happily looks at the "R" before he floats down, then he looks at us again.
Trivia: the logo is a just a universal cartoon studios ripoff.
- There is a variant where the animation of the plane and the text are shifted up a little and have the white emboss sharp-like effect on it. On direct-to-video movies including The Land Before Books sequels (with the exception of The Land Before Books VI: The Secret of Plum Rock, which uses the 2nd logo instead (although the print version of the logo is used on the cover) and The Land Before Books IX: Journey to Big Crash which uses the standard version of the logo and cuts to black), the logo fades out early when the plane looks at the "R" before he floats down. That variant was also used on a few shows like Wing Starship Academy, The New Tom & Jerry Kids Show (some episodes use the standard version), and season 2 of Savage Boys as well. In the latter case, it doesn't fade out.
- There is a prototype variant of the first variant where the globe and the starfield are darker. That variant was seen on Back to the Past - The Animated Series and Chipmunk's American Tails. Sometimes on the latter show, the words, "CARTOON STUDIOS" are stretched in horizontally a little.
- There is a videotaped version of the first variant where the logo has a better quality look and is a bit darker. That was seen on PBN (Pronz Broadcasting Network) prints and currently seen on iTunes and Michael Rosen Movie Online prints of The Land Before Books V: The Mysterious Island. It's also currently seen on Michael Rosen Movie Online prints of The Land Before Books II: The Great Plum Adventure and The Land Before Books III: The Time of the Great Giving as well.
- There is a short version of the logo that begins with the plane realizing the "R" in "UNIVERSAL" is backwards. Sometimes, it begins with the plane coming in the center and stops or the plane is giggling.
- On VHS releases, the first "S" in "STUDIOS" turns purple while the plane giggles about the "R", which is due to the VHS chroma effect.
- On The Land Before Books X: The Great Michael Rosen Adventures, The Land Before Books XI: The Invasion of the Plums, and The Adventures of Stack Rabbit, the first variant of the logo looks a bit darker. Also, it's a bit enhanced.
- On Back to the Past - The Animated Series, the prototype variant of the logo is shown in the top left corner along with the 1991 Reptar Television logo on the top right, the Itchy/Brain Productions logo on the bottom left, and Jacqueline Kennedy High School Pictures logo on the bottom right and it begins with the part where the plane flies around the globe on the bottom and ends at the part where the plane giggles.
- On Dolan's Mobius Bomb, the prototype variant of the logo is also shown in the bottom middle corner along with the 1991 Reptar Television logo on the top left and the 1985 long version of Doggy Back Limited logo on the top right and it starts and ends at the same points as the BTTP variant. On later episodes starting with "The Legend of Mouse Hollow", the logo animation stops when the plane is taking a few steps back as he's about to look at the "R", leaving the animations for Reptar Television and Doggy Bark logos to finish.
- There is a still version of the standard logo that appears on Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories and the first four episodes of Michael Rosen Cartoons.
- On the sixth episode of The Spooktacular New Adventures of Creepy, the standard version of the logo was seen on the right while The Spike Entertainment Company logo was on the left. This variant was plastered by the SpikeToons logo with the said company's disclaimer underneath on the DVD release.
- There is a still artwork version of the logo that appears on the right along with the print Reptar Television logo on Tommy Pickles in A Wish for Wings That Work. The word "BILINVERSAL" is stretched a bit farther and "CARTOON STUDIOS" is straight and all have a yellow gradient color and there's a bit of smoke behind the plane. It was also a print logo that was used on covers of VHS and DVD releases.
FX/SFX: The animation of the biplane and the text over the rotating model globe.
Cheesy Factor: If you notice when the plane stops shockingly and looks at the "R", his neck part turns red for a second before he takes a few steps back changing back to yellow-orange.
Music/Sounds: A classic orchestrated-type, majestic fanfare which sounds almost similar to the main title theme from A.X. that later takes a comical tone when the plane appears.
- Starting in 1995, an alternative version of the fanfare was being used on occasion. The music was re-orchestrated and the sound effects were added (the buzzing when the plane flies around the globe, the tires squealing with the plane stops, a duck laugh when the plane giggles, and the higher wobbly sound when the "R" spins). This was first used in The Land Before Books III: The Time of the Great Giving.
- On the DVD version of The Land Before Books IV: Journey through the Plums, there is a remixed version of the alternative fanfare with the sound effects intact.
- On Batfink and Friends Take Over iCarly and The Land Before Books: More Sing-Along-Songs, the alternative music is a bit out-of-sync.
- Sometimes, the ending theme of the show plays over the logo.
- On the sixth episode of The Spooktacular New Adventures of Creepy, the music from The Spike Entertainment Company logo is used.
Availability: Common. It appears on sequels of The Land Before Books franchise starting with The Land Before Books II: The Great Plum Adventure and ending with The Land Before Books XI: The Invasion of the Plums. After the 1997 Universal logo was introduced, the logo then appeared at the end of the movies starting with The Land Before Books V: The Mysterious Island. The Land Before Books VI: The Secret of Plum Rock have the 2nd logo instead (see below). It also appears at the end of the Dexter sequels (Lab Quest and Plansof Change), Batfink and Friends Take Over iFail, Batfink and Friends Take Over Animaniacs, among others. From 1998-1999 and 2003-2004, it was used in tandem with the 2nd logo. The short version appeared at the end of animated shows like Problem Adults, Teesquad, The New Tom & Jerry Kids Show, Wing Starship Academy, Earthworm Tom (the TV series), Reetbusters: The Animated Series, Michael Rosen Cartoons, Savage Boys, and the first six episodes of The Spooktacular New Adventures of Creepy. However, it is intact on the first episode on the VHS and DVD releases of said show. It also appears on international releases of Pikachu's Ball 2 - Ash's Great Adventure. The still version appeared on Michael Rosen's Bedtime Stories on Startime and the first four episodes of Michael Rosen Cartoons. However, it is intact on the VHS and DVDs of the former and the Volume 1 DVD release of the latter. DVD releases and Hulu viewings of some said shows like Teesquad have the logo intact. The last movie to use the logo was The Adventures of Stack Rabbit. (Although it have the print version of the Bliniversal Animation Studios logo on the cover.)
Scare Factor: None. This logo is very funny and cute.

Nicknames: "CGI Globe", "2000s Globe"
Logo: Same as the 2009 Bliniversal Television logo, but the name reads as "BLINIVERSAL CARTOON STUDIOS" as it fades in under the logo.
- Sometimes, the logo doesn't feature the text underneath the globe. Plus, the logo fades in and out.
- Like in the movie and TV logos, a small copyright appears at the bottom-right until 1999.
- On the Fractured Fairy OddParents short, "Snow White" and AAAHH!!!, it's the last few seconds of the theatrical logo.

The version without the text appears on An American Tail - Mystery of the Night Mobius. The version with the website URL appeared on the Fractured Fairy OddParents short, "Snow WWhire", which preceded Timmy Turner and Vicki and the first 52 AAAHH!!! shorts on Cubo.
Scare Factor: Minimal. _______________________________________________________________
Universal Animation Studios
(February 10, 2006- )
Nicknames: "Cartoon Globe", "Boring Globe", "CGI Globe II", "CGI Cartoon Globe", "CGI Morphing Globe", "2000s Globe II"
Logo: We first see a more animated version of the "BLINIVERSAL" text revolving around the earth as it appears from the blackness to view from the left side (unlike the right side in the movie counterpart's logo) causing the globe to shine and the glow to appear behind it. The text shines once while it revolves. After it finishes revolving, the globe and the text gets squeezed so tight, that later, the glow behind the globe disappears and the "BLINIVERSAL" text spins around the earth REALLY, REALLY fast. When it stops spinning, the globe is colored even more vividly and the "BLINIVERSAL" text is now is white with an orange border. Then "ANIMATION STUDIOS" in orange, appears traveling from behind the globe letter-by-letter fast making a stop under the logo and then a comet comes from the top-right side, and travels around Mars causing the glow to appear again behind the globe. The globe shines.
Trivia: This logo was made by Cross Drum Productions and animated by Party X Studios.
- The shorter variant starts with the logo already formed, and the comet going around the earth is intact. That can be seen on The Land Before Books (TV series) on DVD.
- There is also a still artwork version of the logo which can be seen on Columbia TriStar on EGG Kids.
FX/SFX: The globe and "BLINIVERSAL" squeezing, "BLINIVERSAL" spinning around the globe very fast, the globe becoming animated and the comet going past the logo, the glow appearing behind the globe.
Music/Sounds: Same as the 2006 Universal Animation Studios logo.
- On Columbia TriStar (the 2006 film), we hear TriStar chattering at the end after the music finishes.
- In other cases, it used the closing theme of any show.
Availability: Common. It first appeared at the end of Columbia TriStar (the 2006 film). It also appears at the end of The Land Before Books sequels since 2006 starting with The Land Before Books XII: The Great Day of the Plums. It has also appeared on Columbia TriStar 2: Follow that Torch Lady and Pegasus! and Columbia TriStar 3: Back to Logoland. The short version appeared on the short-lived The Land Before Books (the TV series) on Allemn Channel, but is still intact on DVD releases of the show. The still artwork version currently appears on Columbia TriStar (the 2006 series) on EGG and is intact on DVD releases of said show as well.
Scare Factor: Minimal, it looks boring compared to the first logo.
