Logo (July 3, 2012- )

Visuals: Against a table with some toys, including Kai, Khumba, blocks, crayons and a yo-yo in a kid's room, there is a fishbowl, the camera approaches to the fishbowl to see that there's no fish in there, then the camera goes to the right of the table and there are some water splashes. Then the camera fastly moves to another part of the table where we see a toy aeroplane. Inside the aeroplane, there's a friendly looking, orange fish with white dots and stripes wearing a scarf. The fish puts on pilot glasses and starts to fly in the aeroplane, escaping from the house, and flying through a landscape, complete with mountains, trees, and clouds. Later, we see that all the landscape is inside the "I" of the word "Triggerfish" in blue and backwards. In every letter, there's a different landscape; the "T" has the moon, the "R" has a city, the dot of the "I" has a volcano, the first "G" has a circus, the second "G" has a forest, and the rest of the letters are unreadable. The logo turns and the background changes to white. As this happens, the word "Triggerfish" becomes flat, is not backwards, and is completely in blue. Below it is "animation studios" in a lowercase Century Gothic font.

Variant: On Seal Team, the logo is shortened.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: It opens with some water splashing sounds, then a mysterious musical sound and when we see the aeroplane, the music turns into a heroic fanfare. Otherwise, the opening theme of the film.

Availability: Seen on Adventures in Zambezia, Khumba and Seal Team.
