  • Some variants of the 1994, 2012, 2013; 2016-present logos, and the Re-Animated variant of the 1999-2016 logo resemble the Nickelodeon Productions logo and Cartoon Network Studios Mixels variant due to the copyright information displayed below the logo. The only difference is that the Cartoon Network logo does not come in many shapes or objects like Nickelodeon does.
  • The 1994-2016, 2012, and 2011-present are the only logos to both have the US and international variants.
  • The 1999-2016 of 1994 logo, and Animal Control (Season 1) and Courage the Cowardly Dog: The Fog of Courage variant of the international version of 2011 logo is a reference to Cartoon Cartoons, a programming block that ran on Cartoon Network from 1997 to 2003.
