Background[]

Its a Laugh Productions is a production company owned by Disney Channels Worldwide, a unit of The Walt Disney Company's Disney-ABC Television Group. Founded on November 3, 2003 by Don Mink and Amy Rabins, the studio currently produces live-action children's sitcoms on Disney Channel, and also produced shows on sister channel Disney XD until 2017. They did not use a logo until 2006.

1st Logo (February 3, 2006-September 11, 2020)[]

Logo: On a black background, the words "It's a" in a blue tilted rectangle clanks the word "productions" (both in a Lucida Handwriting-like font) on a red-orange rectangle (in a fashion like a director's clapboard) to reveal the word "LAUGH" (in the Hobo Std. font) on five circles (in the respective order of orange, pink, purple, blue, and green).

Variants:

  • Starting in 2009, the logo was slightly updated in HD. The colors are brighter, "LAUGH" is wider, and "It's a" and "productions" are in a more proper Lucida Handwriting Italic font. This variant debuted on Sonny with a Chance. Despite Disney Channel shows running at the time switching to this in 2009, Hannah Montana continued to use the SD variant until its season four premiere the following year.
  • On the Wizards of Waverly Place episode "Wizards and Vampires and Zombies", there is a short version with only the wobble is seen.
  • On the Dog with a Blog episode "Stan Talks to Gran", the logo's animation is slowed down.
  • On Season 2 of Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything, the logo shares the screen with the 37 Monkeys logo above.

FX/SFX: The word "LAUGH" forming on the circles.

Music/Sounds: Two stock sound effects play: a "clack" and a "BOING!".

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On some shows like Good Luck Charlie, season one of Shake It Up!, the first two seasons of Raven's Home, and Best Friends Whenever, the closing theme plays over instead.
  • On Girl Meets World, the second-half of the Michael Jacobs Productions jingle plays over it.
  • On seasons 2-3 of Shake It Up!, we only hear Selena Gomez yells the show name (which was sampled from the show's theme song).
  • On the Dog with a Blog episode "Too Short", after the normal logo audio is heard, we hear Stan (voiced by Stephen Full on the show) say "Oh, not the spring! I was afraid of that...".
  • On at least one episode of Bizaardvark, the logo is silent.
  • On the second season of I Didn't Do It, the sounds play with the end theme of the show.

Availability: Common.

  • This logo was first seen on the second season of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and is usually seen on every live-action Disney Channel/Disney XD sitcom from the era. It was last used on the Coop and Cami Ask the World episode "Would You Wrather Have a Snow Day?".
  • Also seen on the first four seasons of Bunk'd and the first two seasons of both Raven's Home and Sydney to the Max.
  • Don't expect this on Hannah Montana: The Movie, the company's only theatrical film to date.
  • This was used in tandem with the next logo until mid-September 2020.

Editor's Note: It's a rather unique and well made logo, although its longevity has gathered some criticism.

2nd Logo (June 17, 2019-)[]

Logo: On a white background, the words "IT'S A LAUGH" (in the Linotype Spitz typeface with the "G" edited slightly) appear shaking as it zooms out, while the "A" tilts clockwise and gains a small black shadow. The words stop shaking when the zooming stops. Below it, the word "PRODUCTIONS" in a smaller bold, black, and spaced out font is seen while all of this is happening.

FX/SFX: The shaking letters, the slow zoom out, and the "A" tilting.

Music/Sounds: A drumroll followed by a duck quacking. In other cases, it uses the end theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variant: On season 4 of Raven's Home, the second-half of the Institute for Individual Education theme plays over it.

Availability: Current.

  • First appeared on the Raven's Home season 3 episode, "Friend-Ship", and is currently seen on newer shows from the studio.
  • Later appeared on Bunk'd starting with season 5 and Sydney to the Max starting with season 3.

Editor's Note: While more bland than the previous logo, it's a refreshing change when the previous one was used for 14 years.
