Background[]

Omation Animation Studio is an animation studio run by Steve Oedekerk's O Entertainment company. It produced the Barnyard franchise and the Jimmy Neutron spinoff Planet Sheen for Nickelodeon. It was founded in 2002 by animators who formerly worked at DNA Productions. Omation is currently working on a new Mighty Mouse film for Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Movies.

1st Logo (January 19, 2008 - November 12, 2011)[]

GW294H192

Nicknames: "The O Kid", "Yellow O"

Logo: The CGI "O" from the 1998 O Entertainment logo drops to the center, which shrinks, turns yellow (perhaps referencing the first O logo), grows arms and legs, and changes into 2D. The purple text "mation", in the Jokerman LET font, jumps out of the O's mouth, which then jumps up and freezes.

FX/SFX: A mix of fluid CGI (smoother animation and frame rate than the original "O" logo) and 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The "O!" from the O Entertainment logo at a slightly higher pitch, starting with a strange magical whirring sound, combined with whooshes/synth sounds from the classic Hanna-Barbera sound library. A high-pitched voice says "Mation!" and a snare drumbeat plays.

Music/Sounds Variant:

  • On split-screen Nickelodeon airings of Back at the Barnyard, the logo music was often followed by a short country tune, which played over the Nickelodeon logo at the time.
  • Also on split-screen airings of Back at the Barnyard, the original 2002 O Entertainment music was occasionally heard. It was probably a goof on Nick's part as its regular credits had the logo play normally.

Availability: Uncommon. It was originally seen on Back at the Barnyard, starting with the episode "The Barnyard Games/War of The Pranks". However, later airings have it plastered with the 3rd O Entertainment logo.

Editor's Note: It's basically a more kid-friendly version of the original "Jell-O" logo.

2nd Logo (October 2, 2010 - February 15, 2013)[]

GW375H208-0

Nicknames: "The O Kid II", "Yellow O II"

Logo: It's a CGI remake of the first logo, but the background is now white.

Variant: An extended 6-second version exists on the Omation Tour video, a promo for Omation itself.

FX/SFX: All CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: Same as the last logo, but sped-up and reduced. The extended version uses the full audio.

Availability: Seen on Planet Sheen. The extended version is only seen on the Omation Tour video on Vimeo and YouTube.

Editor's Note: The animation on the animated "O" and the "mation" text (most noticeable when the "O" "speaks" out the "mation" text and jumps) is stiff, and overall looks rushed in comparison to the fluid 2D animation from the first logo.
