Variants:*On the 1999 TV special Snowden's Christmas, the cup and saucer are now in a yellow outline, and cast a shadow. "CUPPA COFFEE" is in white and stacked below the cup, and "ANIMATION" is black in a yellow oval.

  • On the 1999 pilot for Super Why, the variant from Snowden's Christmas is in black-and-white over a yellow background.

Logo: On a blue background, an orange cup and saucer pops up. Then the words "CUPPA COFFEE" appear with "ANIMATION", "STUDIOS" or neither below. 4 black lines appear above the cup similar to the first logo.

  • On Tigga and Togga, copyright information is below the logo instead of the company name.
