1st logo (1987?-1996)[]

Logo: On a rock stone background, there is a blue circle. A blue "X" appears in the circle via "shining" effect. A black filmstrip with the words "LUK INTERNACIONAL S.A." appears in front of the circle.

FX/SFX: Simple Cell animation.

2nd logo (1994-1999, 2011)[]

Logo: On a gold background, we again see the gold circle. The "X" flies around and finally gets in the circle. The filmstrip, this time on a brown color, moves around the "X" and stops in the same form as the last logo. Several white dots suddenly appear and stick to the filmstrip, forming the letters "Luk Internacional S.A.". A green monkey with an antena in his head and a white T-shirt with red stripes appears and smiles below the logo.

  • Sometimes the part were the X flies around is cut.
  • Early episodes of the Spanish dub of Shin-Chan as well as the European Portuguese dub of Twipsy have a gold plate with the words "20th Anniversary".

3rd logo (1999 - 2011)[]

Logo: We star with the X spinning on the circle, which this time is orange. After some time, the X stops spinning and goes back to his usual gold logo. The rest of the logo is similar to the last logo, but this time the CGI is updated and the letters just appear instead of being formed by white dots. The word "Presenta" appears below.

The way the word "Presenta" appears can be different depending on the movie:

  • The word "Presenta" zooms out.
  • Doraemon carries the word "Presenta".
  • The word just fades in.

Logo Variants:

  • On TV shows the spinning X part is cut and the word "Presenta" is omitted.
  • On 1999 shows, a "20th Anniversary" sign is seen.
  • On Catalan, Galician and Basque dubs of "Doraemon" and "Shin Chan" movies, the channel were the show is aired in that country's logo appears below.
  • On Brazilian and Spanish dubs of Atomic Betty and Captain Flamingo, a still version exists, plastering both the Teletoon and YTV logos.

FX/SFX: A mix of CGI and cel animation.

Music/Sounds: A dreamy synth tune that turns into a bombastic theme and ends with some piano notes.

Music/Sounds Variant: The TV version uses the ending theme of the show.
