1997–2007 (United States Only)Edit
To reflect Disney Channel's transition from a premium channel to a commercial-free basic cable service, its presentation was overhauled dramatically on April 6, 1997. The logo was often seen without the "CHANNEL" underneath the main logo, and the channel was usually referred to as just "Disney". Alternate versions of this logo were used for the channel's three program blocks that were 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. the logo shown above was a remake of the original 1997 logo.
A restyled variant of the 1997 logo was introduced in late 1998, featuring varied coloring of the "Mouse Ears TV"; this variant was used only during afternoon and evening programming until October 6, 2000. After Vault the new disney channel logo was discontinued in September 2002, this logo also appeared during the late night hours until the original version of the January 2002 logo was introduced. The reason why because they bring teenaged programming while above will be used on animated shows.
Disney Channel introduced a new look on September 20, 2002. In addition, a new logo, still based on the Mickey Mouse silhouette and Disney's signature, appeared on-screens on October 6, 2002. and was rolled out to other countries the following year. Design agency Razorfish was involved in the rebranding. Moreover, Disney Channel started using a series of celebrity bumpers still in use, featuring live-action or animated characters often drawing the Disney Channel logo using a glow stick. Until 2010, the full silhouette could be seen.
On May 23, 2014, Disney Channel overhauled its logo for the first time after having only minor updates to its logo for the past 12 years of its existence; the new logo incorporates the ears moved on to the I of 'Disney' and the Disney logo in the Walt Disney font. Also, the tube shape was removed, two circles were added to the left and right of the dot of the "i", and the stylized Mickey Mouse head shape was retired after 12 years LA California. The early normal lowercase "i" version of the logo was first used earlier in Germany on January 17, 2014 and in Russia on August 1, 2014. Still used internationally.
