Sparx Animation, commonly stylized as "SPARX*", is a French-Vietnamese 3D art, VFX and animation studio, with around 400 artists, animators and technical experts. It was briefly renamed to Sparkling* in 2001. The French offices closed in 2008, while the American and Vietnamese offices closed in 2010. Since 2011, Sparx* has been a member of Virtuos Group - one of the world's largest game developers. It was reopened in Ho Chi Minh City in 2011.

Logo: We see the word "SPARX*" in a red or white outline. Below is "A VIRTUOS COMPANY" or "Animation & digital visual effects".

Variants: On Rolie Polie Olie, the logo shares the screen with the Metal Hurlant Productions logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show or movie.

Availability: Common. Seen on many projects from Sparx* since Rolie Polie Olie.

2nd Logo (August 13, 2002-April 28, 2004)

Visuals: The logo starts with an orange background, but then it suddenly reveals itself to be a white star spinning away from the screen and onto the SPARX logo (which now reads "SPARKLING" instead of "SPARX"). As the star settles into its position, it forms a black outline around the text and disappears before popping up next to the "G".

Technique: 2D computer animation

Audio: Either the closing theme of the show or (on Rolie Polie Olie: The Great Defender of Fun) a sped-up remix of the RPO theme song that adds horns.

Availability: Seen on the sixth and final season of Rolie Polie Olie. Also seen on The Great Defender of Fun and The Baby Bot Chase.
