Below is a high quality (HQ) high-definition (HD) streaming video which features a montage of Nickelodeon USA's motion graphics and branding design elements from Nickelodeon USA's "Saturday's On Nickelodeon" on-air presentation, which also includes some of the Nickelodeon branding design elements and motion graphics that Nickelodeon UK and Ireland have recently adopted as part of Nickelodeon UK and Ireland's 2011/2012 brand refresh, including the Nickelodeon Idents which feature characters from popular animated Nickelodeon shows, such as "SpongeBob SquarePants", "The Penguins of Madagascar", "Planet Sheen", and "Fanboy and Chum Chum", morphing and transforming themselves into the shape of the famous Nickelodeon logo, and Nickelodeon's 'circle' bumpers and designs [which also features Dudley Puppy from the original animated Nickelodeon show ("NickToon") "T.U.F.F. Puppy"]. The video below which features some of Nickelodeon USA's "Saturday's On Nickelodeon" on-air presentation also features examples of Nickelodeon North America's "Saturday's On Nickelodeon" Lower Third strap bars, examples of Nickelodeon USA's 'Saturday' promos ["Tomorrow Morning", "All New", "One Hour Event", and "Penguin Premiere Event"], and a few of Nickelodeon USA's "Up Next", "Right Now", and "We'll Be Right Back" Nickelodeon bumpers for "Saturday's On Nickelodeon".

Remember getting up early to watch Thunderbirds? Maybe you were more of a Masters of the Universe person. Fraggle Rock, The Smurfs, Duck Tales, Care Bears, Jem and the Holograms, My Little Pony… the list goes on. These days there is a new roster, and we were pumped to infuse some of our fond memories of Saturday morning cartoons into these idents for Nick. Using stripes, circles, Nick’s logo and the characters from the shows, we made a fun series of idents which we hope the kids of today enjoy as they munch on their cereal.
