Nicknames: "Bouncing DHX"

Logo: On a white background, the blue letters "d", "h", and "x", as well as the black letters "m", "e", "d", "i", and "a", bounce onto the screen from different directions. The "i" does not have a dot; the dot rolls onto the screen from the right. The letters in "dhx" turn white as the thick blue outline from before fades in and the letters jump into it, with the letters in "media" jumping on top of it. The dot of the "i" jumps on top of the letter and bounces slightly before settling into place.

Variant: Sometimes, it has the copyright info at the bottom.

FX/SFX: CGI.

Music/Sounds: A set of bouncing sounds and a chorus of children chanting "D-H-X!" over a whimsical piano/banjo ditty.

  • Sometimes, it has the closing theme ending over it or playing over it.

It was also seen on Blaze and the Monster Machines from the second season onwards, but Nickelodeon over-the-last-scene credits has the next logo below.

Scare Factor: None.

4th Logo (Mid 2010's)

Logo: On the white background, the outline slides in from the left and "dhx" slides in from the right forming the logo in the center. It bounces back and forth, as "media" (Above the "hx") and the ® disclaimer (Under the logo) wipes in.
