  • Old Elephant: We see an elephant taking a nap until his alarm clock goes off. The elephant jumps out of the chair and yelps. He then stops the alarm.

FX/SFX: 2D animation produced by CINAR (Now Cookie Jar Entertainment).
Music/Sounds: Depends on the variant.
  • Old Elephant: The elephant snoring and yelping, and the alarm going off.
  • Cheetah and Bear: A theme that starts mischevious, then dramatic once the bear scares the cheetah, then a happy tune once the bear starts laughing.
  • Rapping Dog: A 90s hip hop beat with a short "Go Doggy!" chant, then the dog starts rapping "Well I'm a rapping dog and there's something you should know, this is TVMKids and it ain't no joke!"
  • Fox and Deer: Forest ambience along with a joyful tune.
Availability: Rare. The old elephant ident was normally seen after Shining Time Station, the TVMKids original series The Secret Life of Savannah and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. The cheetah and bear ident was normally seen after Are You Afraid of the Dark, Ghostbusters, Tom and Jerry, and Looney Tunes. The rapping dog ident was normally seen after Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Wishbone, and Arthur. The fox and deer ident was normally seen on The Big Comfy Couch, Barney and Friends, Lamb Chop's Play-Along, Wimzie's House, and The Care Bears.
