1st Logo (1998-2006?)

Logo: On a brown background, a grocery bag filled with water (with a spotlight following it) drops down and slides to the middle of the screen, then does a pose. As this is happening, the water drips out of the bag. Below the logo are these words:

3rd Logo (2007-)

Logo: On a white background, there is a brown rectangle in the middle of the screen. A paper plane files on to the left side (next to the words) and turns in to the bag from the 2 previous logo. At the same time, these words flip in:

BROWN®

BAG FILMS

on the right side. BROWN BAG is in white, while FILMS is in brown on top of a smaller grey rectangle. Variants:

  • There is a short version which starts with the words flipping in. Also, it is bigger then usual. This is seen on early episodes of Doc McStuffins.
    • Later episodes have the byline at the bottom.
  • On Peter Rabbit (Non-Split-Screen airings), Octonauts, Bob the Builder (2015 reboot), Grabby Bag, Teenology, and Noddy in Toyland, the logo is still and in-credit.
  • On split-screen airings of Olivia and Peter Rabbit, it is still on the white background.
    • On Non-Split-Screen airings of the former, the production byline is displayed at the bottom.
  • After 9 Story Media Group acquired Brown Bag in August 2015, "WE LOVE ANIMATION" was placed under the logo, and has remained there ever since.
  • On Nella the Princess Knight, it is on a snowy background and is again still.

FX/SFX: The company name being flipped onto the brown rectangle and the grocery bag opening.
