20th Century Animation

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


20th Century Animation (originally known as Fox Family Films, Fox Animation Studios, and 20th Century Fox Animation and sometimes referred to as Fox Animation) is an American animation studio located in Century City, Los Angeles. Formed in 1994, it is organized as a division and label of 20th Century Studios (formerly 20th Century Fox), a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Studios, and is tasked with producing animated feature-length films. At one point, 20th Century Animation had two subsidiaries: Fox Animation Studios, which was shut down on June 26, 2000, and Blue Sky Studios (the latter became the primary unit of 20th Century Animation), which was closed on April 10, 2021.

Logo (October 31, 2000)

Visuals: Essentially just a still image of the 1994 20th Century Fox tower except the word "FOX" is in the same place as the word "CENTURY" and the words are smaller and underneath is the word "ANIMATION". All of the text on the structure, except "20th", are set in Franklin Gothic Heavy, and below it is the usual News Corporation byline.

Variant: An accolades version exists where the logo's sky background is taller and the nominees for Titan A.E., Olive the Other Reindeer and Bartok the Magnificent are seen.

Technique: A still, printed image.

Audio: None.

Availability: Seen only at the end of the VHS release of Olive the Other Reindeer.

Legacy: This logo was infamous for being lost for a few years before being rediscovered.
