Launched:  June 8, 2001

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 "clapperboard" logo concept was also introduced on the said date, being the concept used by the company in the next twenty-one 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 2007, 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!!!, produced in 2008 and released in 2009.

2013–2022

Cartoon Network Studios 2013.svg
Designer:  Unknown
Typography:  Gotham Ultra (modified)
Eagle Bold
Launched:  May 21, 2013

On May 21, 2013, the clapperboard logo was brought back in CHECK it style to fit with the 2013 "CHECK it 3.0" re-brand, 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).

Although 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 Clarence 2014 pilot that was first released online on 2013, replacing the 2010 logo in most shows, and it has been used by the company since then. Despite the introduction of the 2022 logo, it was still used on the website.

Proxima Nova Extrabold
Launched:  September 6, 2010

On September 6, 2010, the logo had a major and drastic redesign to fit with the 2010 "CHECK it 1.0" rebrand. The classic 1992 logo was replaced with three white squares ordered in the form of stairs with a fourth square placed next to it and the full name of the company underneath it. Normally the fourth square would pop a fragment of a scene from the belonging show, while other cartoons like Ben 10: Omniverse it would just stay blank. In the live-action shows, the square wasn't included at all.

This logo debuted in the first season of Regular Show and it was used until May 18, 2015, with its last appearance being the Over the Garden Wall pilot "Tome of the Unknown".
