1st Logo (May 4, 2019-)

Visuals: Simply the white letters "LA" with "O R I G I N A L P R O D U C T I O N S" below. The sides of the letters are black with the white letters "CN" being seen on the left side of the "L".

Variants:

  • On Toontorial, the logo is on a slanted piece of paper. A black thumbtack is barely holding it onto what appears to be a marble wall.
  • On the Villainous pilot, entitled "The Dreadful Dawn", it showed a building represents Dr. Flug's head. Black Hat's laser object powers the "L" with "CN" while the building explodes into "A", then "O R I G I N A L P R O D U C T I O N S" shifts at the left. The object flies away.
  • On the actual Villainous series, Black Hat's hands take Dr. Flug's head to shift and forming the logo.
  • A zoomed in version exists.

Technique: A still, digital graphic. The Villainous variants use 2D computer animation.

Audio: None, the ending audio to the program or the next logo's music.

Availability: Can be seen on season 5 of Otra Semana en Cartoon, Toontorial (starting with the eleventh episode) and Villainous. The logo was used in tandem with the next logo.

2nd Logo (July 6, 2019-)

Visuals: Over a white background, the logo starts with the current Cartoon Network logo. It then switches to a white "LA" with the text "LATIN AMERICA" underneath. Afterwards, the text "LATIN AMERICA" switches to the text "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION" before finally switching back to the current Cartoon Network logo.

Variants:

  • An shortened version exists.
  • A sped-up version exists.
  • On season 4 of Irmão do Jorel, Jorel's brother and Lara appear flailing their arms and legs over the logo.
  • On later episodes of Ninjin (starting with the sixth episode), the title character is shown eating ramen noodles while balancing between the "L" and "A" letters. Unfortunately, he thinks that noodles are hot and faints as the CN logo appears.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: An upbeat maraca and drum beat (somewhat reminiscent of Argentine tango), followed by the 2010 Cartoon Network jingle. There are also 3 "whoosh" sounds for ever switch besides when the "LA ORIGINAL PRODUCTION" text turns into the current CN logo.

Audio Variants:

  • Sometimes, three whoosh sounds are only heard.
  • Sometimes, it's silent.
  • On season 4 of Irmão do Jorel, Jorel's brother (voiced by Andrei Duarte) and Lara (voiced by Melissa Garcia) are laughing throughout the music.
  • On later episodes of Ninjin and O Real Mundo de Any Malu, a Brazilian pagode rendition of the CN jingle is used instead. For the former, the vocal effects of Ninjin (voiced by Carol Valença) can be heard.
  • On some episodes of Toontorial, the music is high-pitched.
  • On Rey Mysterio vs. La Oscuridad (including its shorts), the logo's music is a Mexican mariachi rendition.

Availability: Can be seen on CN Anything (starting with episode 34) and Any Malu Show, as well as the latter's spin-off O Real Mundo de Any Malu. Also seen on season 4 of Irmão do Jorel, Ninjin and Turma da Mônica Jovem, among others. Used in tandem with the previous logo.
