Monkey Bar Games

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Monkey Bar Games was a division of Vicious Cycle Software, founded in 2005 to create family friendly video games.

Logo (October 13, 2005-June 5, 2012)

Visuals: On a blue, rotating burst, the camera zooms out to reveal "MONKEY BAR" and "GAMES" in yellow with a black shadow on top and bottom of a circle with a yellow outline. After it zooms out slowly, a picture of a cartoon monkey head falls and lands on the circle, eventually bouncing on it a few times while shaking slightly.


  • Sometimes, after the logo finishes, the screen crossfades to the next logo.
  • On Madagascar 3: The Video Game, the logo is still on a black background.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Drum rolls when the circle zooms, and then a gong sound when the monkey head lands on the shape, and ending with a monkey chittering.

Audio Variant: On some games like Curious George, the sound of kids laughing is heard at the end.

Availability: Seen on such games as Dora the Explorer: Journey to the Purple Planet, Curious George, Flushed Away, Despicable Me: The Game, and Madagascar 3: The Video Game. However, this logo does not appear on their last video games, such as Turbo: Super Stunt Squad.
