HBO Kids

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


HBO Kids is a company created by HBO Entertainment, intended to make shows for younger viewers. It acquired Sesame Street from PBS since season 46, but it stopped using a logo starting with season 51.

1st Logo (January 16-October 29, 2016)

Visuals: In a city is many colorful buildings and shapes. Close to the screen is blue, green and yellow spheres. They roll and jump through a hole which is revealed to be the letter H. The logo zooms through and see the blue one still on the roll. It bumps into a square with more shapes, and we see two B's on the sides. We tilt and then the sphere drops through and lands in a green and blue spiral. It splashes as an O gets pulled onto the screen like a magnet. The other letters in HBO KIDS fly in blue.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Sounds corresponding to the effects on screen, accompanied by a cheery tune.

Availability: Seen on Season 46 of Sesame Street.

2nd Logo (January 7, 2017-July 11, 2020)


  • Opening: The text "HBO KIDS" from before appears static like a TV on a white background. Then, a color changing background appears bar by bar, and changes. Then, they disappear.
  • Closing: Same as before, but the colors stay on screen, and it ends with a TV off effect.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: Same as the HBO Entertainment logo.

Availability: Seen on seasons 47 to 50 of Sesame Street.
