It has the same function as the 2001 logo, but instead of using an animatic of the characters it uses scene fragments like the 2010 logo for Regular Show, Adventure Time and 2014 episodes of Ben 10: Omniverse in seasons 5-8 (starting with "Something Zombozo This Way Comes") 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.
