Background: Teen Robotnik was founded on April 1st, 2002 as "The R", sharing its channel with Naggin (who changed its target demographic to preschoolers on the same day). On January 1, 2008, the two split, with The R taking over the channel occupied by Dr. Robotnik GAS (or "Robonik GAS"). On February 24, 2009, it was announced that The R would be phased out and rebranded as "Teen Robotnik". Naggin would also be phased out and rebranded as "Robotnik Jr." The changes happened on September 28, 2009.


1st Logo (April 1, 2002-October 5, 2007)

Logo: There are many variants, but they basically involve The R's "hand" logo and the word "original" in a squarish font. Here is a (short) list of variants: Box: White lines over a turquoise BG (meant to resemble a box) move around, as The R's logo of the time and "original" appear, at first revolving but settling in the back (the lines move for less than a second more), and when the lines stop, various images appear on the other sides of the box, settling on a Utah-like setting at the top, with the clouds in the sky moving rapidly via time-lapse. Fish: We see a close up of fish swimming. Two boxes appear, one having the "hand" logo, and another having "original" in it. Picket Fence: A white picket fence with The R's logo and "ORIGINAL" (in orange) on it appears in front of a blue sky. Various curvy patterns come from the logo and the text. Plate: A plate with The R's "hand" logo in red on it falls onto a table. "ORIGINAL" is also on the plate. Car Freshener: We zoom up to a gray "pine tree" car freshener. The network's logo forms on the air freshener, and a yellow box with "original" in it forms below.

FX/SFX: TBA.

Music/Sounds: It varies based on the variant.

Availability: The first two variants can be seen on older Animaniacs episodes (which air frequently due to the show's popularity), and the Plate variation appeared on The Best Years Animaniacs 101 marathons. The "Car Freshener" variant can be seen on Animaniacs of the Dead.

Scare Factor: Depends on the variant. (which still airs, albeit infrequently).


2nd Logo (October 5, 2007-September 28, 2009)

Logo: On a gray background, two "r" figures (like in the network logo) draw themselves, one at the bottom left and one at the top. A silhouette of the network logo pops out at the center (without the text in it). Everything except the network logo silhouette disappears, which turns into the network logo as the text "original" writes itself below. Inspector Gadget-related copyright information appears below when the animation is finished.

FX/SFX: TBA.

Music/Sounds: A techno jingle.

Availability: Rare, appeared on About A Man and Animaniacs Minis on The N. This logo was retired as of 2009. When Animaniacs: The Next Generation was on local syndication, the logo was deleted. However, it's saved on DVD releases.

Scare Factor: None.


3rd Logo (2009)

Logo: On a light lime background, we see colored shapes and "r" letters drawing themselves. Then two connected gray circles remain on the screen, with "the" in one and "r" in other both in yellow, and "original" in blue handwritten font appears below.

FX/SFX: The logo forming.

Cheesy Factor: It looks extremely cheap.

Music/Sounds: A techno jingle.

Availability: Extremely rare, appeared on Animaniacs Goes Hollywood.

Scare Factor: Low.
