Logo description and editions by CuriousGeorge60 and Lukesams
Logo capture by Lukesams
Background: Disney Junior is a children's television block that premiered on February 14, 2011 on Disney Channel replacing Playhouse Disney. Since March 22, 2012, said block became the current 24-hour channel replacing SOAPnet on most providers. However, SOAPnet still survived on some providers as an "automated" network until its end on January 1, 2014.
(February 14, 2011- )
Logo: On a light blue background, we see the text “Junior” (the top of the “J“ has a cut curve) bouncing and zooming out, as the Disney logo, also zooming out, places itself on “Junior”. Then, colorful fireworks appear.
- On some episodes of Little Einsteins (namely the "Incredible Shrinking Machine" episode), you can briefly see the Playhouse Disney logo before it cuts to the Disney Junior logo. This is a result of poor plastering job. This was later fixed.
- On one 2013 episode and some 2011 episodes of Art Attack, a copyright notice appears under the logo.
- A short version exists. This was more commonly used starting in late 2011/early 2012.
FX/SFX: The Disney Junior zooming out and the fireworks.
Music/Sounds: An orchestrated tune. Sometimes, it’s the shows closing theme.
Availability: Common. This logo appears on new programs such as Jake and the Never Land Pirates (the first TV program to air on Disney Junior and to have this logo), and Sofia The First. It also debuted on TV shows after the launch of Disney Junior International (Disney Junior Asia had this logo first appear upon its launch on July 11, 2011, for example). It also appears on new prints of shows that were on Playhouse Disney such as Handy Manny, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Special Agent Oso, plastering the final Playhouse Disney Originals logo, which was originally seen on pre-2011 episodes of said shows.
Scare Factor: None to minimal. The fireworks may startle some viewers.
