Background:
Hasbro Interactive was the interactive division of Hasbro, Inc. It was founded in 1995 and was purchased by Infogrames in January 2001 and later became a part of Atari. Their president was Thomas Dusenberry (although he was called "Tom" in the games).


1st Logo
(1995-1996)
[Untitled]

Logo: On a black background, we see a white rectangle with the word "HASBRO" in green on the top. The word "ELECTRONIC" in Times New Roman font with a purple Saturn-like planet with a red atom revolving around in place of the "O" The word "ENTERTAINMENT" in purple is seen below "ELECTRONIC".

FX/SFX: None.

Scare Factor: None.



2nd Logo
(1996-2001)

Nicknames: "Interceptor", "The Space Triangle", "Hasbro Triangle"

Logo: We see a triangular object (possibly rocket) quickly moving towards us. Suddenly an intercepting rocket appears, leaving a colored slide, and crashes Hasbro Interactive (1996-1999)the triangular rocket. All the action bumps into the screen, forming the Hasbro triangle logo, surrounded by many descending sparks.

Variants:
  • The still version is much more common.
  • The logo can have an outline, for example in H.E.D.Z, where it share places with Vis logo.
  • On the N64 and PC version of Glover, the logo is still and seen on the floor, and pans to the Interactive Studios and A-Team logos which are on the walls. The camera then pans back to the Hasbro Interactive logo. Glover appears, turns the red globe into his red stripey ball, and rides it away. The PS1 version instead has the Atari logo.

FX/SFX: The rockets moving and the explosion.

Music/Sounds: A rocket whistle and the bang sounds.

Availability: The animated version is seen on most games from the company, like Gunship!, Thomas and Friends: Trouble on the Tracks, Family Feud,Squad Leader and the Sega Dreamcast version of Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge. The still version is seen on other games, mostly on Game Boy Color games.

Scare Factor: Low to medium, the rocket moving and exploding near to you is not a calm thing.



3rd Logo
(1997-1999)

Nicknames: "Rolling Stones", "The Space Triangle II", "Hasbro Triangle II"

Logo
: We see five white dots moving clockwise by a spiral towards the center. There, they merge and form a spinning blue pyramid with a big blue Hasbro Interactive (1998)sphere carved on its sides. The pyramid begin to rotate and five white spheres pass it, making it colorized. Then the spheres appears again, spin around the pyramid (which becomes 2D) and takes their usual places on the Hasbro logo. The words "HASBRO Interactive" moves in with a door-closing effect and the logo sparkles.

FX/SFX: All the animation in the logo.

Music/Sounds: Various ambient sounds and a fanfare-like tune near to the end.

Availability: Seen in several games for PC. Some examples are Stuart Little: Big City Adventures, The Game of Life, Jeopardy, Monopoly Star Wars, Tonka Raceway, Tonka Search and Rescue, and Axis & Allies.

Scare Factor: None.



4th Logo
(1997-2001)
Hasbro Interactive (2001)

Nicknames: "Ball Triangles", "The Space Triangle III", "Hasbro Triangle III"

Logo: We see a blue 3-D circle on a blue background. Then it turns into a green one on a green background. The pattern continues (yellow, orange and red) until the logo forms. This logo is more elaborate, with reflections and 3D effects. After the logo is complete, the logo disappears in a white flash

Variant: On Rollercoaster Tycoon, the logo is still and pans from the top to the bottom.

FX/SFX
: All the animation in the logo.

Music/Sounds: Starts with a crashing sound, then a humming sound, followed by electronic sound effects culminating into 5 synth notes and a whoosh sound at the end. On some games, the music is out of sync. The Roller Coaster Tycoon variant has one of the coaster hill sounds.

Availability: Seen on most games by Hasbro Interactive, like Beast Wars, the PC version of Nicktoons Racing (the PS1 version uses the Infogrames logo), Thomas and Friends: The Great Festival Adventure, Frogger: He's Back (the first game to have this logo), Atari Arcade Hits and Pac-Man: Adventures in Time.

Scare Factor: None.



5th Logo
(1999-2000)
Hasbro Interactive (Custom)

Nicknames: "Let's Play!", "Electrons", "The Space Triangle IV", "Hasbro Triangle IV"

Logo: Some colored electrons move around a blue atom. The camera zooms-out to reveal the space full of debris, then the triangle cuts off the space and makes the blue sphere inside it, surrounded by electrons as in the usual Hasbro logo. The logo is outlined. Suddenly the red electron enters, making the way to its place and the logo shines to reveal "LET'S PLAY!" below the picture.

FX/SFX: The color electrons moving.

Music/Sounds: A "sshhh" sounds of flying electrons, followed by an ascending noisy tune.

Availability: Very rare, as it was seen on only two games: Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge for the PlayStation and PC (The Dreamcast version has the 2nd logo), and the 1999 PC version of Monopoly.

Scare Factor: Low.
