Background: Great Oaks Entertainment was a short-lived production company that was founded in 1995 as a merger between John Hughes's Hughes Entertainment and Ricardo Mestres Productions. It was based at Disney Studios in Los Angeles. Sadly, it only produced two films, 101 Dalmatians and Flubber, both of which belonged to the Disney library.


(November 27, 1996 - November 26, 1997)

Great Oaks (1997)

Logo: We zoom out from behind the trunk of an oak tree. An acorn falls from the top of the tree, and bumps down the branches. A leaf has also fallen, and is following the acorn. They fall onto a lake, with the acorn landing on the leaf. A script "Great Oaks" fades in below the logo, as ripples resonate from the leaf.

Trivia: This logo was made by Prologue.

FX/SFX: The acorn and leaf falling and landing on the water. Nice looking for 1996.

Cheesy Factor: There is only one problem here: the animation choppily slows down just as the leaf touches the water. The reason for this is unknown and it cheapens the logo.

Music/Sounds: On 101 Dalmatians, it is just the sound of the acorn bumping the branches and sounds coming from other sources. On Flubber, the opening theme plays over the logo.

Availability: Appeared only on two films, the live action 101 Dalmatians and Flubber.

Scare Factor: None, unless you're scared of trees or water.

I thought I've seen the font used in the Great Oaks logo in many places. Rod1014, what's the font that looks like or is the one used in the logo?
