    So, today I was looking around iTunes' Nick Rewind page, and I look at a couple shows. Then, I look at for example, Rugrats: Best of, Vol. 2 "album cover" and I notice a new Nickelodeon logo. For example, it's shown here on Rugrats: Best of, Vol. 2 and The Angry Beavers: Best of, Vol. 2 (circled in red):

    Somehow, I remember seeing this "new logo" somewhere else. Then I realize I saw it while looking through Fred Seibert's flickr. It was on this Fanboy and Chum Chum premiere invitation thing. Here it is:

    Is this just for branding outside of the network or could this seriously be Nickelodeon's new logo? Share your thoughts.

    Interesting find. It reminds me of the pinball logo.

    Nick probably won't replace the iconic splat, though.

    Great find. I honestly wouldn't be suprised if this new logo doesn't come this fall when The N turns to TeenNick and Noggin to Nick Jr. Nickelodeon is trying to brand all their networks to look similar, so it is quite possible Nickelodeon could get a new logo.

    And if this is true (why else would they put a new logo on some merch if it wasn't changing), then this is a very big change for the network!

    This logo looks eerily similar to the Pinball logo of the 70's. Maybe this is Nick's 30th anniversary tribute?

    Also interesting is that the new TeeNick logo doesn't use the current Nick font.

    I didn't even notice that before! i really liked the pinball logo so I don't mind it but it would be strange without the splat.

    I can't believe they are changing the logo. It's been the same for a while so this feels kind of..strange, we'll get used to it though.

    You can't say it's worse than CN's.

    I thought they'd never change the logo, despite the legal ramifications of it still using a circa-1980's font that just about every computer now has.

    I like the Splat. I like how versatile it is and how it can be shaped into anything. I thought the "be anything" spirit of the Splat represented Nick perfectly, as well as childhood itself, and shouldn't ever be changed. They can change the font if they need to, but they can't ever get rid of the Splat!

    Especially for something as sterile as THAT!

    Though considering how bland and sterile Nickelodeon's advertising and bumpers have become, I guess the new logo fits their new clean-cut image.

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe they WILL use it on-air, but only for the rest of the year. But if this is the case, it'll show how Sponge crazed Nick is. Like I bet the guys at Nick are like,

    "Both us and SpongeBob are celebrating our anniversaries this year! SpongeBob gets an all-weekend marathon and we just get a new logo! Yay!"

    :sad:

    ^ I think Nick getting a new logo is a pretty big deal too. Keep in mind that they have had the orange splat for 24 years now. And honestly, it would be a better idea to keep the orange splat. Like stated in the posts above, it's versatile, unique, and represents what Nick's about.

    Keep in mind that we've only seen text at this point. For all we know, they might just change the Nick font, or keep the splat as a design element.

    Can't help but express disappointment IF they are indeed changing their logo, it doesn't seem necessary.

    Does that font remind anyone else of the "N" in the current "The N" logo?

    The new Nick logo is just plain and blah.

    Old Nickelodeon logo = SciFi
    New Nickeldoeon logo = SyFy

    That's what I keep thinking of when I see this logo.

    Are we even sure this is supposed to be a new logo?

    Why else would they be using it on their products then?
