Funbag Animation Studios

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Funbag Animation Studios was a Canadian animation studio based in Ottawa, Ontario providing production services on many animated series. It was founded in 1992, but they did not have an on-screen logo until 1998. On April 29, 2007, the company closed down due to a decline in business and some of its employees at the studio founded New Bike Entertainment to secure Funbag's assets.

1st Logo (April 12, 1998-2005)

Visuals: On a white background, there is a paperbag with a face and cut at the top. It breathes in, puffing up as it does so, and then various items (such as a jack-in-the-box, confetti, a pencil, and a filmstrip) fly out of it as it begins to laugh, rotating slightly. A purple oval is formed behind it, and as it appears, the letters "N" (in green), "A" (in pink), "U" (in yellow), "G" (in teal), "F" (in blue), and "B" (in red) respectively fall from the top of the screen to spell "FUNBAG", all in a crooked position separated from each other.


  • A more common version starts when the letters fall from the top of the screen.
  • An in-credit version appears on The Mole Sisters and Faireez.
  • Another in-credit version appears on Toad Patrol where it lacks the background and the letters are all in a different color; the "F" in red, the "U" in purple, the "N" in orange, the "B" in blue, the "A" in yellow, and the "G" in green.

Technique: Hand-drawn animation.

Audio: A rustling sound, followed by a pop and the bag's hysterical laughter. There are also a few "boing" sounds and what seems to be a cuica as the letters fall, and this culminates in a synth orchestral note.

Audio Variant: On most of the shows it appears on, the ending theme plays over it.

Availability: Seen on Anthony Ant, the last two seasons of Freaky Stories, Toad Patrol, The Mole Sisters, King, Just Jamie, The Eggs, and Faireez. Its first appearance was at the end of The Tale of the Great Bunny.

2nd Logo (November 5, 2000-December 16, 2001)

Visuals: On a beige woven background, the same paperbag from the previous logo is shown, completely still, and the oval is flat, being dark blue with a black border. The text "FUNBAG" in 3D (resembling alphabet fridge magnets) appears, jiggling under the bag. "ANIMATION STUDIOS" appears in light yellow.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Same as the previous logo.

Availability: Only seen on For Better or Worse.
