    Reminds me of the creative 90s. Wish all shows got the same royal treatment.

    One thing I can't help but notice when watching CN is that the logo is so opaque that it gets ghosted in during extended viewing periods. They should increase the transparency of it.

    Isn't CN US the only feed to not have a transparent logo at this point? I think it's on purpose because of all the banners and to be seen more, but it's not very up to date imo when everyone else is minimalist, transparent and clean.

    Yeah the CN bug, without any of the banners and such, has pretty much been the same since 2010, minus getting rid of the "HD" text and some repositioning. Wondering if it'll ever be changed, or it will stay that way until we get a new logo (like with the first CN bug)

    I could see CN maybe making it transparent and getting rid of the "CARTOON NETWORK" text at the bottom, kinda like how Comedy Central's bug shows the full logo at first then condenses it to just the monogram a few seconds later.

    True, but they can make the logo opaque again when the banners show up.

    CN USA is not alone. CN PT's bug is also solid.

    I don't mind the opaque bug but I really wish they'd change up the bug's logo animation. It has stayed exactly the same since 2010's rebrand. Maybe do something playful with it on certain occasions like Nick and Disney.

    Yeah, it too needs updating. However there is a law in their style guide that forbids things like recoloring the logo and etc. The Latin American feed violated these regulations in 2012.

    I recall that they painted the 2010 logo blue. This was when they were in a temporary rebrand between January and September of that year, carrying on with the Toonix identity.

    I'm aware of it but other than that (and I guess Halloween) they don't really do anything with it.

    Why can't they make the logo transparent a few seconds after appearing like some American and Canadian networks?

    Huh, interesting. I still wish they'd make the logo more flexible like the previous one, though I still much prefer the current logo. I also hope they phase out Dimensional soon (maybe this summer), it's gotten kinda bland.

    Who knows. The usage of CMYK colors have been synonymous with CN for several years now and a potential rebrant seems inevitable.

    What does CMYK stand for?

    Cyan Magenta Yellow Key (Black), the color scheme that's been prominent in CN's current branding.

    Thank you, I always wanted to know what the K was for.

    If ain't broken, don't fix it

    Another rebrand? Please no.. many international operations still have to adopt costly Dimensional and you want another one? :D
    The look is fine as it is IMO
    Correction:the way US adopts things often is bland, not the branding itself (see CN UK)
