Sardine Productions

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Sardine Productions is a Canadian animation production company founded in 2002 based in Montreal, Quebec.

Logo (September 9, 2006-)

Visuals: On a black background, a white flash turns itself on (like as if it's a TV). As it does, the background changes to a static faded red one while the flash continues to grow. It then turns into a brighter red, while random text and bar codes along with a copy of the logo as well as faded filmstrips and borders on the sides before the background turns grey. The logo is revealed to be a red sardine facing the right on a white bended rectangle with "Sardine" below and "productions" underneath both in the same color as the rectangle zooming out briefly. Then the text, bar codes, logo, and name from early on appear before cutting out abruptly.


  • An in-credit version appearance on Manon where the logo is on a white background.
  • On ToonMarty, a shortened version is used that starts with the final stages of the logo's formation.

Technique: Flash animation.

Audio: A series of beeping sounds, followed by a 4-note keyboard accompanied by the sound of a river flowing, and then some additional beeps.

Availability: Seen on their shows such as My Goldfish is Evil, ToonMarty, and Manon, among others.
