1st Logo (September 29, 2000-March 15, 2002)

Visuals: In a white space with an X-mark on the floor, a green anthropomorphic power drill with hands, feet, eyes and a big smile comes into the screen. He quickly glances around and drills a hole in the center of the X-mark. Then, he has difficulty removing his nose and other anthropomorphic tools come: a hammer, a pencil, two screws and a vice. They begin to spin the drill until the company's logo (the text "DOKi DeNKi" in a yellow cartoony font with the "O" in "DOKi" looking like a bullseye with a thin up arrow above it) comes and knocks them away. The logo stays on-screen and beats twice, then the thin red text "S T U D I O" comes below.

Variant: On the PS1 version of Peter Pan: Adventures in Neverland (Peter Pan in Return to Neverland in North America), the tools look smoother, and the "DOKi DeNKi" text is in a slightly different font with a thick gray shadow behind it, the "O" and the arrow above it is larger, and "S T U D I O" is in a thicker black font.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Two quiet thumps when the drill comes in, cartoony sounds when he looks around, the sound of drilling when he drills the X-mark, followed by more cartoony sounds, a quiet whooshing sound, a brief fast-paced jazzy tune when the tools spin the drill, ending with a boing sound when the logo knocks the tools away, and two springy sounds when the logo beats.

Audio Variant: On the Peter Pan: Adventures in/Return to Neverland variant, the sounds are lower pitched.

Availability: Appears on Tigger's Honey Hunt, Party Time with Winnie the Pooh (Pooh's Party Game: In Search of the Treasure in North America), and Peter Pan: Adventures in Neverland (Peter Pan in Return to Neverland in North America).

2nd Logo (March 18, 2003)

Visuals: In the dark, an anthropomorphic lightbulb turns itself on, revealing that it's surrounded by the tools from the previous logo. The pencil bends down and draws a circle on the floor, and the drill screws some holes, causing light to emerge from there. The others all get nervous as the hammer slams the circle, making a big hole. They all look through the hole, and it is revealed that they are looking through the "O" from the Adventures in/Return to Neverland variant of the previous logo. The camera zooms out to reveal the whole logo, and "S T U D I O" in a thick black font appears below it.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A click sound when the lightbulb and the tools appear, scribbling sounds when the pencil draws the circle, screwing sounds that gradually increase in pitch as the drill screws the holes, followed by a deep bang when the hammer slams the circle, a long screwing sound when the screen zooms out of the "O", ending with a short shrill tune.

Availability: Seen only on Piglet's Big Game.
