Background: Ánima Estudios was founded in 2002 on Mexico, and is the most popular animated studio in Latin America. they produced several animated films such as "Wizards and Giants" and "Top Cat: The Movie".

1st logo (2002?)[]

Logo: Over a black background, we see the red word "anima" in a cartoony font. The word "estudios", in the same color and font, then appears and pushes the other word to the side to fit in. The dot on the "i" in "estudios" then falls down.

FX/SFX: Flash animation.

Music/Sounds: The ending sounds of the test footage.

Availability: Extremely rare, it only appears at the end of an early test animation for "Wizards and Giants", found on said movie's DVD.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd logo (November 19, 2003 - October 30, 2014)[]

Anima 00p2

Logo: On a white background, we see a green square, the camera zooms out, revealing that is the dot of the "i" on the word "Ánima Estudios" on a black color. A shadow of a kid walks and picks the dot with his finger, he moves the dot, forming a green atom shape, he then throws the atom, the atom knocks the "n" and turns it in to a green color. The kid catches the atom and the logo freezes.

Variants:

  • During the end credits of most of the movies and shows made by them, a print version of the logo is seen without the kid.
  • On "Imaginum", the entire logo fades to the opening space background of the film except for the atom, which flies around said space background until disappearing.
  • On "Poncho Balon", the logo is still on an orange background.
  • "A Martian Christmas" uses the same variant as "Poncho Balon", but the background is on a grey colour
  • On "Gaturro" and the Aregentine release of "Top Cat: The Movie", the print logo is used
  • On "Teenage Fairytale Dropouts", the logo is on high speed

FX/SFX: Fantastic CGI Animation!

Music/Sounds: A collection of electronic sounds, though usually the logo uses the opening/closing theme of the movie/show.

Availability: The normal logo is seen on all the movies they've made during that era, except for "Top Cat: The Movie", the print logo appears at the end credits of all the movies they've made, as well as on "El Chavo Animado" and "El Chapulin Colorado".

Scare Factor: None to low, the electronic sounds can scare someone, but it's a nice logo.

3rd logo (October 30th, 2014 - February 18th, 2016)[]

Anima estudios logo
Anima estudios momias
Anima estudios gdo 2
Anima top cat c

Logo: The logo starts like the 1st logo but this the "n" is already green and the kid doesn't appear anymore. When we see the full text, something happens to the logo, which varies, depending of the film:

  • La Leyenda De Las Momias De Guanajuato: The "i" starts to shake and the point falls to the ground, the "i" then falls too, as we see the hand of one of the mummies from the movie rising from the ground. The mummy rises from above and he notices us, he roars angrily, as a storm is heard in the background, the logo fades to black, except for the eyes of the mummy, which are still there. Suddenly, another pair of eyes appear on the dark and the whole logo fades to black.
  • Wicked Flying Monkeys: A thunder hits the "i" and turns it into the Wicked Witch of the West, who throws an evil laugh, and lots of flying monkeys fly from the ground, until they fill the whole screen, which then fades to black.
  • Top Cat Begins: The "i" turns into a trash can and we see Benny hiding on the letter "m", Benny starts hiting the trash can several times with a hammer, without noticing that Top Cat is inside the trash can. Top Cat comes out of the trash can, looking very dizzy and sees Benny angrily, Benny finally notices Top Cat and goes away running. Top Cat then closes the trash can and the logo fades to black.

FX/SFX: Usually CGI, the variant used on "La Leyenda De Las Momias De Guanajuato" mixes flash animation.

Variant: TV shows use a print version of the logo.

Music/Sounds: Each movie has a different theme, based on the soundtrack of the film, along with the sounds the characters in the logo make.

Availability: Seen on the movies named above.

Scare Factor: Depends on the variant, the one used on "La Leyenda De Las Momias De Guanajuato" could be Medium, because the mummy can scare you the first time you see, while the other ones are None because they are kind of funny.

4th logo (February 18th, 2016 - 2018)[]

Anima Estudios 2016 logo

Logo: It's the same concept as the 2nd logo, but now the letters are bigger and the word "Estudios" is black. Just like the 2nd logo, every movie has a different variant:

  • La Leyenda del Chupacabras: The dot of the "i" in "Ánima" is an atom and the "Estudios" text is green and smaller. Shadows of Leo San Juan and his gang come out of the "n". Moribunda trips and falls to the ground. Leo picks her and they all go inside the "m". The whole logo fades out, except for the spaces of the "a"s, which turn into the eyes of the Chupacabras.
  • Monster Island: The pumpkin cop from the movie comes out of the dot and accidentaly knocks the "i". When he falls to the ground, his head stays where the dot of the "i" was. He tries to reach it, but he can't.
  • La Leyenda del Charro Negro: The logo starts in the part where the letters are already fully seen. Several sparks of fire appear, floating in the background, and suddenly, the background turns black and the letters turn red, with the "n" being in a darker shade of red.
  • Here comes The Grump (International prints): The logo again starts in the part where the letters are already fully seen. Dingo appears from the right side of the screen, running with The Grump riding on his back. He quickly stops, making the Grump fall into the ground, knocking the "i" in "Ánima" which also falls into the ground.

Variants:

  • "Legend Quest" has a print version of the logo over a black screen. The black letters are in white and the dot on the "i" isn't an atom.
  • Until 2018, trailers and other promotional material feature the print version named before sliding from the center of the background. This time, the dot is an atom.
  • On promotional material for products related to the "Las Leyendas" franchise, the variant named above is in yellow over a brown background.

FX/SFX: Same as the 2nd logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 2nd logo.

Availability: The logo started being used on February, 2016. The on-screen logo debuted in "La Leyenda del Chupacabras".

Scare Factor: Same as the 2nd logo.

5th Logo (January 1st, 2018 - )[]

Logo: Similar to the other two logos, each movie has it's own animation, but the logo always ends with the white text "Ánima", in a stylized, cartoony font, and with each "A" having an eye, over a black background:

  • Here comes The Grump (Mexican prints): We open with The Grump riding Dingo over a sky filled with grey, stormy clouds. They both look at each other, as the camera pans down from the clouds to a black background, following a thunder, which forms the Ánima logo.
  • La liga de los 5: Over the black background, we see Chema confidently letting out his powers (represented by the green smoke that comes out of his hands) as he looks smily at the camera. He eventually looses control of them and begins to run and scream while being surrounded by the green smoke, and after his face fills the entire background, he falls to the ground, as the green smoke forms the Ánima logo.
  • Cranston Academy: Monster Zone: We open with Mothman turning on a light over the black background. Just like in the movie, he feels romantically attracted to it, and flies towards it to kiss it, just to be zapped by it. The electric bolt forms the Ánima logo.

Variants:

  • In recent YouTube uploads of "Teenage Fairytale Dropouts", now renamed "Awesome Magical Tales", a version of the logo is seen which may be a standard variant. It consists on the black letter "Á", running happily through a white background with its eye closed. With every step, the rest of the letters, also in black, emerge from the ground. The finished logo looks just like the theatrical version, but the colors are inverted and the text is bigger.
  • In trailers, a still version of the theatrical logo is used.
  • In TV shows, a print version is used.

FX/SFX: Depending of the variant, it's either CGI or 2D hand-drawn animation.

Music/Sounds: Each variant's accompaining sound effects.

Music/Sounds Variant: TV shows just have said show's closing theme over the logo.

Availability: The logo was first introduced in Ánima's social media on January 1st, 2018; but it's on-screen appearance wasn't until the mexican release of "Here comes The Grump". The print variant is seen at the end of TV shows produced by the studio like "Space Chickens in Space" or the second season of "Legend Quest".

Scare Factor: None.
