Background

Apartment 11 Productions is a Canadian children's television production company based in Montreal, Quebec, founded in 2000 by Jonathan Finkelstein.

1st Logo (September 14, 2002-March 30, 2014)


Visuals: On a wooden door background, there is a purple peephole with a purple door. Below is the following lowercase text in purple:

apartment 11 productions

along with a small copyright info given at the bottom middle which says and reads out the text:

© [year] MWW (or the 8-digit code of the show, followed by 'Quebec') Enterprises, Inc.

in dark grey. The number "11" is screwed onto the wooden door like the peephole does. Then suddenly, the peephole door itself creaks open and the eye of a blue-eyed person pops through the peephole, and it blinks twice.

Variants:

  • On some reruns of Mystery Hunters, a poorly plastered copyright can be seen below the company name.
  • An in-credit version can be seen on some episodes of Mystery Hunters, consisting of 'an' above the company name from the standard logo, minus the 's' at the end, reading "an apartment 11 production".

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A creak when the peephole door opens. Two descending notes play, one for each time the eye blinks. Also, the end theme of the series can be heard for some shows from the company.

Availability: Seen on Apartment 11's older programs such as Prank Patrol (as well as the Australian version), In Real Life, and Mystery Hunters, the first program with this logo. Also seen on other past/former shows from the said company such as like Way Off Broadway, Surprise...it's Very Edible and was last seen on Cross Country Fun Hunt.

2nd Logo (2014-)


Visuals: Same as before, except the eye is now larger and now in a cartoonish style, and it is now on a white background instead of a wooden door background. The new Apartment 11 Productions logo text is now in a different font, nor also this time all being in capitals (except for the number 11) instead of lowercase and are stacked in together as well. Only the "11" is in a purplish color; while the words "APARTMENT" and "PRODUCTIONS" are both bolded black in color, in Haewasitter. Two very tiny black dots appear on both the left and right sides in between the text "PRODUCTIONS". Like the previous one, below in the middle of it, there is also an small sized copyright info notice that reads (as an example given here):

© [year] Bing Enterprises, Inc.

(whatsoever depending on the TV series from the company) in a very light grey color.

Variants:

  • On Rank The Prank, there is a still in-credit variant.
  • On The Mystery Files episode "The Mystery of Games", there is a different copyright notice that reads and show the following text down below: (c) 2015 Florence Productions Inc.
  • On The Mystery Files episode ''The Mystery of Knowing The Code'' the copyright notice from the 1st logo is used.
  • On The Wacky Word Show episode ''Heroes'', there is Zoë holding up a large peephole on a navy blue/black starry sky background with tiny white stars. She swings her arms and flies up. The company name is smaller and in white, barring the '11'.
  • On Wacky Word Songs, the copyright notice says: (C) 2020 9117-3112 Quebec Inc.

Technique: Flash animation.

Audio: Same as before. On Finding Stuff Out and The Wacky Word Show, the end theme of the show plays over the logo, but the creak is kept.

Availability: Seen on Look Kool (C'est WOW!! in French Canadian territories), Finding Stuff Out, Rank The Prank, The Wacky Word Show and Wacky Word Songs.
