    During an episode of SpongeBob: Truth or Square in November 2017, normally for shows in letterboxed 16:9 on their SD feed the Nick on-screen bug would touch the bottom of the image, but here it's not the case.

    Much alike to how the bug was before the rebrand this year.

    Don't know if this is considered an error or rather a consistency issue, but during Full House on Nick at Nite, the SD feed's on-screen bug is just like what you see when you watch their 4:3 shows on their HD feed like this image below.

    Then on a recording of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the on-screen bug on the SD feed (which has been like this for a while), is higher on the screen, typically for shows in 16:9 Letterbox on their SD feed.

    I have a feeling that they fixed their on-screen bug placement on their SD feed for their 4:3 shows like Full House and Fresh Prince. EDIT: It seems that only Fresh Prince has this awkward on screen bug placement, this bug is the same for Friends, Two and a Half Men, The Goldbergs and George Lopez, by the way.

    Yeah I did notice when Fresh Prince rejoined Nick@Nite in fall 2014, logo bug went up more (for SD feed) and they think it's HD, but it's really in SD feed. It has been this for years, but I thought it got fixed in 2015 or 2016..but I guess not.

    This afternoon when they aired Thomas & Friends, near end of episode "christmas coffee pot", they were running white ending credits, then the same theme played but no TV parental guide is bigger, then next episode plays which is another christmas special. That might be due to Nick airing episodes not in same production number

    Just now in beginning of scene, they accidently aired ending credits even though it's not actually near end of special Danger Games.

    At the end of a The Thundermans episode today, Nick UK aired the sponsorship sting before the end credits rolled, instead of after.

    Just when they show the banner up next: another Two and a Half Men, odd thing on N@N during near end Two and a Half Men airing, a whole picture of Friends screencap is being used during displaying banner up next Two and a Half Men, but can hear the audio of the dialogue. Just goes to show how low N@N get..

    Today at 8:30 AM on Nickelodeon during episodes of PAW Patrol and Rusty Rivets, the on-screen bug was absent. It did show later on during an episode of Bubble Guppies though.

    When Danger Games aired on Nick today, even after commercial breaks are over, TV parental guide on top did not even display at all

    They never removed the bug by mistake on Nick Iberia.

    On a rerun of It's a SpongeBob Christmas on Christmas Eve, the on screen bug on the HD feed was on the 4:3 SD area.

    Today exactly 7:55pm SpongeBob Movie (started 7PM) now use bigger TV parental guide and now uses Nick@Nite logo bug. I'm surprised they never used those with Danger Games crossover and Hey Arnold Jungle Movie premiere as overlapping Nick@Nite time

    Nick Iberia's bug is out of the safe zone, which means that part of the bug touches that area during 4:3 letterboxed programming.

    I remember one time back when Noggin and The N shared channel space when one of Noggin’s on screen graphics was on display in place of The N’s on screen bug for at least the first show to air on The N that night (didn’t check after that).

    This isn't really new, but during episodes of PAW Patrol, they aren't shown in letterboxed 4:3 on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.'s SD feeds. All of their other Preschool shows that are in widescreen are letterboxed.

    Here in Portugal and by extension most of Europe, that doesn't happen.

    During Mysticons on Nick Jr., the TV Parental Guidelines is the same font used for the defunct NickMom block and not the one that Nick Jr. is currently using which was previously on Nickelodeon from 2009-2017.

    Huh. I thought they got rid of all NickMom branding when the block was disbanded in 2015.

    Late last night, for Nick at Nite, the on screen banner shows up next Two and a Half Men, but picture of Friends screencap is shown (they still didn't fix this), you can still hear audio of dialogue. It airs at 1AM, though if anyone can post screenshot or something, it might be helpful. I don't have any video account and not planning to join account for posting videos.
