Background

Jumbo Pictures, Inc. was an independent animation production company founded by animator/children's' book author Jim Jinkins (creator of Doug) in 1988. In 1996, Jinkins sold the company, and the rights to Doug with it (except Nickelodeon still owns the rights to the Nick-produced series), to The Walt Disney Company. Jumbo Pictures continued operations until the cancellation of the Playhouse Disney cartoon series PB&J Otter in 2000, and was folded into Walt Disney Television Animation after that. Jinkins is still active in animation, forming his current production house "Cartoon Pizza" in partnership with David Campbell in 2000.

(August 11th, 1991 - September 24th, 2000)

Nicknames: "The Egg", "The Jumbo Egg"

Logo: On a dark blue background, we see a large egg with "JUMBO" in front of it, and "PICTURES" below in far smaller type font on a black rectangle and the word "INC." in a much smaller font below "PICTURES", with the text "GRADE A QUALITY" on the bottom with "A" bigger than the rest of the letters.

Variants:

  • From 1992 till the end of the duration, the logo is enhanced. The background is vanilla cream colored. Plus, there are a few differences. The black rectangle is gone and the surrounding area dims as the egg's shadow becomes visible. The word "PICTURES" is black. The text "GRADE A QUALITY" is in black and is smaller.
  • On Disney's (Brand Spanking New) Doug and PB&J Otter, there is a copyright stamp under the logo.
  • On the 1999 film Doug's 1st Movie, the egg is smaller and the background is a light blue gradient. Plus, "GRADE A QUALITY" is a bit bigger. The egg is also more realistic and there's no copyright stamp below.
  • In 2000, it is the same as before, but the 1992-1999 version is reused.


FX/SFX: None in the first variant. The shadow animation in later variants in 1992.
