Cartoon Network Studios originally used the 1992–2004 Cartoon Network logo for its original shows, which was mostly seen during early episodes of The Moxy Show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast and What a Cartoon!
On April 28, 1996, the logo was given a highlighted outline and the word "Studios" was added above. This version was used in some What a Cartoon! shorts from 1996 and 1997.
An alternative short-lived version of the logo with the word "Studios" in Checkboard style was briefly used in later episodes of the 1st season of Dexter's Laboratory.
An SVG version of this logo is recommended but not required.

In 2000, Cartoon Network Studios unveiled a new logo which was designed as a graphic of the company headquarters with the name below, but this time the word "Studios" moved to the right side of the Checkboard logo and is enclosed in a black rectangle.
It was only used on a pilot episode of Codename: Kids Next Door and some other pilot shorts in 2001.
A similar logo was used on June 3, 2006 for the Adult Swim pilot-short Korgoth of Barbaria, with the particular difference that the 2000–2001 logo was replaced with a simple wordmark written in the Impact font.
On June 8, 2001, the word "Studios" was placed above again and the entire logo was given a hand drawn-like appearance, being the main design that the company would use in the next eleven years. The logo would normally open like a clapperboard showing a sketchy animation of characters from the belonging show with a red background behind (although color of the background varied in some occasions).
This version debuted in Time Squad and it was used until 2008, after The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy aired its sixth and last season. It was later reused, for the TV special The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!! released in 2009.
A slightly modified version of the 2001 logo debuted in the third season of Johnny Bravo and it was used in tandem with the previous one until March 31, 2012, after Ben 10: Ultimate Alien aired its last season. This makes it the most recognized and longest lived logo used by the company.
This alternative variant of the previous logo with a different font in the "Studios" wordmark, first appeared in
Star Wars: The Clone Wars and it was used occasionally in some shows until 2010.
- The only shows that were airing during this period of time and didn't use any of this logos are Ed, Edd n Eddy, Mike, Lu & Og, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Sheep in the Big City, Codename: Kids Next Door and The Secret Saturdays. This is because they were produced by other companies related with Cartoon Network and not by Cartoon Network Studios itself.
- This logo made a small cameo on a title card of Clarence episode Pilot Expansion.
Instead it was decided to use the 2004–2010 Cartoon Network logo (the orange variation to be more precise).
2010–2015Ben 10: Omniverse it would just stay blank. In the live-action shows, the square wasn't even included at all.
On August 30, 2013, the classic design was brought back in CHECK it style, using the 2010 version of the Cartoon Network checkerboard logo as a replacement of the 1992 logo. It has the same function as the 2001 logo, but instead of using an animatic of the characters it uses scene fragments like the previous logo (for Regular Show and Adventure Time, it used the same clip from early seasons).
Althought this isn't always the case, since some modern shows like Steven Universe, Steven Universe Future, Over the Garden Wall and We Bare Bears uses an animatic like the 2001 logo; while shows like OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes uses a full made original animation and shows like Clarence and The Powerpuff Girls reboot use live-action.
This logo debuted in Uncle Grandpa, replacing the 2010 logo in most shows, and it has been currently used by the company since then.
- The Amazing World of Gumball is the only show from this period of time that didn't use this logo or the previous one, since it was produced by Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe.
- Cartoon Network Studios Europe used a similar logo for the cartoon The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe, released in 2017.
- Long Live The Royals, Ben 10 2016 reboot (starting with the show's second season), Infinity Train, Summer Camp Island, JJ Villard's Fairy Tales, Adventure Time: Distant Lands and The Fungies! are the only shows that uses different scene fragments for each episode.
