On September 23, 2005, Nicktoons introduced a new look and became Nicktoons Network 5. The logo was designed in house. Exopolis created the new on-air package. This logo has a globe shown with orange slime and the number 5 on it. Beginning with this era, Nicktoons would begin to feature both classic and original programming.
As part of Nickelodeon's rebranding effort, all of its channels were rebranded on September 28, 2009. Along with the rebrand, Nicktoons Network 5 reverted back to its old name used from 2003 to 2005. The "TOONS" part is show in red, blue, silver/grey, yellow and green in bumpers and promotional advertisements and even on on-screen bugs.
