The Disney Channel


The Disney Channel 1983

The Disney Channel debuted on April 18, 1983 as a premium cable channel; its original logo featured a rounded TV screen with horizontal lines and a Mickey Mouse ears silhouette.

The lettering below the logo was changed in February 1987 to resemble the wordmark of The Walt Disney Company. The wordmark was sometimes seen without the TV screen with the silhouette of Mickey Mouse's head or vice versa.

Disney Channel 1997

To reflect its transition from a premium channel to a commercial-free basic cable service, Disney Channel's presentation was dramatically overhauled on April 6, 1997. This logo was often seen without the word "CHANNEL" underneath, and the channel was usually referred to as just "Disney". Alternate versions of this logo were used for the channel's three program blocks launched after the rebrand: preschool-oriented morning block Playhouse Disney, adult-oriented nighttime block Vault Disney, and preteen-targeted weekend block Zoog Disney. The new look was created by Lee Hunt Associates with help from Cuppa Coffee and English & Pockett. This logo was also shown with many other characters in it, an element that was dropped in 2000, though the original variant of the logo continued in use until 2002 during the Playhouse Disney and Vault Disney program blocks along with Imagineer That segments and Disney Channel Original Movies.


Disney Channel 2000

A restyled variant of the 1997 logo was introduced in late 1999, featuring varied coloring of the "Mouse Ears TV"; this variant was used only during afternoon and evening programming. After Vault Disney was discontinued in September 2002, this logo also appeared during the late night hours until the original version of the 2002 logo was introduced.


Disney Channel 2002

On October 7, 2002, Disney Channel introduced a new logo still based on the Mickey Mouse silhouette, and was rolled out to other countries the following year. Design agencies Razorfish and CA Square were involved in the rebranding.[1]During this period, the channel started using a series of celebrity bumpers still in use, featuring live-action or animated characters drawing the logo with a glow stick. Before the 2010 update, the complete logo would occasionally be shown.


Disney Channel (2010)

On May 7, 2010, Disney Channel updated its on-air look and began using a modified version of the 2002 logo, which originally was introduced two months earlier in bumpers for weekend evening programming. The Mickey Mouse head silhouette is inside a box resembling a smartphone application icon.


Disney Channel 2017

On May 22, 2014, Disney Channel completely overhauled its logo for the first time in twelve years of its existence. This logo features the word "CHANNEL" in a script font. Also, the tube shape was removed and the stylized Mickey Mouse head shape was retired after 12 years (except when the shape dots the I in "Disney" on occasions). An early version of the logo first debuted earlier in Germany on January 17, 2014, and in Russia on August 1, 2014.
