Cookie Jar Entertainment was the last name of the former production company originally known as "Cinar" established in March 2004 by Michael Hirsh as subsidiary of the Cookie Jar Group after he left Nelvana Limited. On August 20, 2012, DHX Media announced that it would acquire Cookie Jar for $111 million, and it was completed on October 22 of the same year. Today, Cookie Jar still survives as an in-name-only unit of DHX Media known as "DHX Cookie Jar Inc."
Nicknames: "The Cookie Jar", "The Exploding Jar", "Annoying Jar"
Logo: On a black background, we see COOKIE JAR (stacked) resting on a yellow oval and a lid on top with a byline saying "Cookie Jar is a trademark of Cookie Jar Entertainment". Suddenly, the lid flies off and two bright lights emerge out of the jar. The lid falls back down, tilted.
- On Gerald McBoing-Boing, the logo is superimposed over the credits.
- The logo simply swings and zooms in, like on season 9 of Arthur.
- Sometimes, the logo is still and has no byline, as seen on Postcards from Buster.
- There may also be a "www.thecookiejarcompany.com" URL below.
- Sometimes the logo has fluid animation (i.e.: the current version, introduced in 2009).
- Sometimes seen with the word "TOONS" below for their block on This TV.
- On Johnny Test for NDS, the logo was on a white circle.
- In 2009 on CBS' KEWLopolis, the logo played in warp speed.
- Starting with the sixth season of Johnny Test, the byline reads "COOKIE JAR is a trademark of DHX Cookie Jar Inc." with "A DHX Media Company" under it.
- Another variant removes the DHX Cookie Jar byline (leaving just the "A DHX Media Company" byline) and the DHX Media logo is seen with the blue cartoon-y clouds on the bottom.
FX/SFX: The lid flying.
Music/Sounds: Either the end theme of the show, silence, or a "pop" sound followed by a playful synth-disco tune and a child giggling.
- There are kids that are saying "Cookie Jar!" that's merged with the standard jingle.
- There is also a sound of a lid popping up and then clinging when the lid closes (also merged with the standard jingle).
- Sometimes, there is no sound.
Availability: Starting to be uncommon, now that Cookie Jar's been absorbed into DHX Media. It appeared on episodes of Arthur, The Doodlebops (w/ jingle), and Johnny Test. Also seen on Boomerang's reruns of the 2005 Teletoon/Cookie Jar/Classic Media remake of Gerald McBoing-Boing. It also appeared on shows that DiC originally owned like Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot and Strawberry Shortcake when last seen on CBS' Cookie Jar TV block. Recent TV airings of The Busy World of Richard Scarry replaced "A CINAR Presentation" on the in-credit logo with "A COOKIE JAR Presentation", with the 1991 and 1995 Paramount logo preceding it, as usual. N-Circle's DVD releases of Cookie Jar's archive programming have the jingle version followed by the N-Circle logo, while This TV broadcasts of their archive programs (many of which had not been seen in the US beforehand) under the title This is For Kids or (for E/I shows) Cookie Jar Toons had this logo plastered over any Cinar/DiC logos, with the exception of some episodes of Inspector Gadget (which uses the 2001-2002 Fox Family/Fox Kids international prints with the 2nd "Kid in Bed", the Saban International logo and the 2001 Fox Kids logo), at least until 2013, when the block was dropped. It's also seen on Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century on Qubo with the kids saying "Cookie Jar!", plastering the DiC logo, though sometimes DiC's logo is left intact.
Scare Factor: None. This is mostly just annoying, also the "Cookie Jar!" variant is minimal.
