Music/Sounds: Two ominous violin notes, followed by a 3-note flute tune, a musical "thud" as the head falls into place, and two more short bass violin notes as the clouds fall into place and bounce. At the beginning of the logo, water can be heard. This was all composed by Julian Nott. The standard variant with music debuted on the UK VHS/DVD Aardman Classics (from Momentum Pictures). At the end of the same VHS, the normal logo plays, but the text says " Coming Soon: Aardman Animations Vol II", in a different font.

On the Aardman Animations Vol. 1 variant, we hear an eerie tune with several synth toms, crash-like sound effects and a harp-like noise when the logo zooms in. This was also composed by Julian Nott. Trivia: This logo was based off the Flushed Away variant of the 2nd logo, just with the star also being printed out. Music/Sounds: A quiet grinding noise plays as the logo slides in, then silence, or the opening music of the film. Like all the best stories, ‘Hector’ is a thing of many layers. The dvd comes in a full plastic case and, as it starts to play gives every impression of being a highly superior piece of children’s animation. Hector is a super-cool, cycling, nine year old who inhabits an extraordinary world – largely of his own invention.On Flushed Away, an animated version exists, which looks like a prototype version of the next logo. The text appears by rolling up on an invisible roller, and the star pops in after it emerges. This variant would become the basis of the fourth logo. The Peculiar Adventures Of Hector, Aardman animation (2007) A stunning piece of animated story telling deployed as a children’s road safety campaign

The in-credit variant is seen on Aardman-produced TV shows both Shaun the Sheep films and Early Man. The last 3 projects are coproduction with StudioCanal There is an alternate version of this logo shown on the VHS Aardman Animations Vol. 1. The box, instead of the normal animation, shows a time-lapse video of a man in a set building the logo together. After a while, we zoom in to the logo and the finished result is the altered variant. The text " Aardman Animation presents" is in a different font.The five, five minute episodes are a treat to watch – although as the surreal story lines develop, it does become obvious that these are movies with a message. The format owes something to the Charley the Cat public safety films of the 1970s. And for all the delights of Hector, when it comes to ramming home the messages – wear bright clothes when going out at night, wear a helmet and use lights when cycling and so on – they do drop into the stories with a bit of a clunk. This does not appear on Creature Comforts (original 1990 short film), Next, Going Equipped, Pib and Pog, Owzat, Never Say Pink Furry Die, Al Dente, Ident, Pop, War Story and Stage Fright, as they use an in-credit text instead. The logo first appeared in Angry Kid and its final appearance overall was in Shaun the Sheep: The Flight Before Christmas, which premiered in international territories on Netflix on 3 December 2021 and then on BBC One on Christmas Eve 2021.
