Background: Disney Television Animation (formerly the "Walt Disney Pictures Television Animation Group" and "Walt Disney Television Animation") was formed in 1994 originally as the animated production arm of Walt Disney Television. Originally at the beginning of the end credits of any series, it currently uses both an in-credit text and on some series, an in-credit logo at the end of the credits, it used either the Walt Disney Television and/or Buena Vista Television/Buena Vista International logos. It was not until 2013, that it unveiled its own animated logo at the end of every show. Currently, it's the animation division of Disney Channel since 2015, who also produces programs for Disney XD (formerly "Toon Disney" and "Jetix") and Disney Junior (formerly "Playhouse Disney"). In 2019, the name "Walt" was stripped from its television division, renaming it to its current name.
1st Logo (September 14, 1995- )
Logo: This is not really a logo, only an in-credit text. At the end of the show, we see:
Produced by WALT DISNEY PICTURES Television Animation Group ... but starting in 1998, the text was read as:
Produced by WALT DISNEY TELEVISION ANIMATION ... this would usually then be followed by the Walt Disney Television logo of the time.
- This would later become an in-credit logo when the words "Walt Disney" is in the actual trademark script font. During the later years, a copyright stamp for "Disney Enterprises, Inc." is added below the text or logo at the end of the credits.
- Starting in 2021, the name "Walt" was retired from the text reading this:
Produced by DISNEY TELEVISION ANIMATION ... again with the word "Disney" in its corporate font and a copyright stamp for "Disney Enterprises, Inc." below.
Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.
Availability: Common. It's seen intact on all Disney cartoons starting with Adventures of the Gummi Bears and Wuzzles.
Scare Factor: None.
2nd Logo (2013-2021)
Nickname: "Disney Castle"
Logo: It's basically the same as the then-current Walt Disney Television logo, except the text reads:
WALT DISNEY TELEVISION ANIMATION Variants:
- Pre-2017 international prints would have "Distributed by Buena Vista International, Inc." cross-fading-in.
- Starting in 2021, the words was changed to "DISNEY TELEVISION ANIMATION".
FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: Same as the then-current Walt Disney Television logo.
Music/Sounds: The long 1998 Walt Disney Television logo theme, although the music is hardly heard in America due to the closing theme playing over it. Non-USA prints have the music.

Variant: The logo was redone for Tron: Uprising. It was made of blue glowing lines, and the rays crossed the night sky behind the castle.
FX/SFX: Same as the 2016 movie logo.
Music/Sounds: A short version of the 2016 movie logo, but ends with one piano note, although the music is hardly heard in America due to the closing theme playing over it. Non-USA prints have the music.
