1st Logo
(1994 (?)-1999)
[]

Nicknames: "Peeling Letters".

Logo: TBA.

Trivia: Before Junior channel was launched in 1996, the channel's then owner Kirch Group used the name and logo as a brand for the children programming the company owned and distributed.

Variants: A still version exists on Twipsy.

FX/SFX: The letters peeling one by one.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized hip-hop jingle.

Availability: Extremely rare. The logo's earliest known appearance was at the beginning of 1994-95 TVP1 Poland airings of the 1976 Pinocchio anime.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd logo
(1999-2015)
[]

Nicknames: "The Junior Wrap Around(J-Squad) Logo", "The Rayman Wannabe From Germany", "Rayman's German Doppelgänger" "The Not-Rayman"

Logo: On a yellow background with an orange spiral zooming, we see the word "Junior" in different colors similar to the last logo, but more bobbly-like. Above it there are two blue ovals and on the right-top we see a drawing of Junior (A Rayman-like character from the Junior Wrap-Around(AKA J-Squad) segments) who winks his eye. The byline "Junior By EM-TV" is seen below.

Variants:

  • A still version without Junior exists on Poochini and German prints of "Norman Normal"(Not The 1968 Short).
  • A early version exists where the "Junior" text is Bigger and Centered and with a bevel-like effect added without the Blue ovals. The "J" is tilted a bit. Junior Is now at the Top Center of the screen. The byline is in a different font.
  • A version with the URL (www.myJunior.com) exists.

FX/SFX: The background zooming and the animation of Junior.

Music/Sounds: A pop tune (taken from the Junior Wrap Around shorts), then a brass hit for Junior winks.

Music/Sounds Variant: Sometimes, it's either silent or has the show's closing theme.

Availability: Extremely rare. Can be found on some Junior Wrap Around (AKA J-Squad in English-speaking countries) segments. It's also shown on German prints of Maya the Bee, Heidi, and Vicky the Viking, among others. Also spotted as a de facto game logo on German versions of Rainbow Fish PC Games from EMME Interactive and the Twipsy CD Rom game by Tivola(under the Junior label) (Some versions use the Tivola logo instead). The early variant is ultra rare.

Editor's Note: The appearance of Junior may put off some viewers. The animation on Junior is quite choppy of all the sudden. Some people may remind them of Rayman due to his appearence.
