1st Logo
(August 5, 1988-April 12, 1996)

Imagine Films - CLG WikiImagine Entertainment PresentsImagine Entertainment (2011)

Nicknames: "The Rising", "Shining Star", "Reflection"

Logo: On a black background, we see a star flashing, revealing a reflection of the shiny chrome-blue text "IMAGINE", which then rises up and settles above its reflection. The words "AN" above the "IMAGINE" text and "ENTERTAINMENT" with "PRESENTATION" below, appear respectively. The studio's name sparkles.

  • Another variation used the term "PRESENTS" below the logo. This can be seen on Closet Land. Strangely, this is shown at the very end of Cry-Baby.
  • At other times, "FILMS" appeared sandwiched in between the company name. This was seen on HouseSitter.

Trivia: This logo is still used as the print logo, even after this logo ended.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The star shining, the studio's name rising, the studio's name sparkling.

Music/Sounds: Silent. In other cases, it has jazz music played over this logo.

: Seen at the end of movies from this company from the era.

Scare Factor: Minimal. The flash could make some people jump.

2nd Logo
(June 28, 1996-)
Imagine Entertainment logo - Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" variant

Nicknames: "The Drop", "Ripples", "The Dripping"

Logo: On a black background, we see a waterdrop appear at the very top of the screen, prior to dropping. It then disappears before revealing rippling blue water. The water appears to be shone by a spotlight, before it slowly reveals that it is actually the word "IMAGINE" being reflected inside. The text waves for a few seconds before finally settling into view. Shortly after that, the word "ENTERTAINMENT", in spaced-out letters, appears underneath it.

On the 2006 TV series Curious George, there is a still version of the logo.

FX/SFX: The drip, the ripples forming the studio's name. This was done by Intralink Film Graphic Design.

Music/Sounds: A calming orchestra piece composed by James Newton Howard. Sometimes, the movie's opening theme is used.

Availability: It first appeared on The Nutty Professor and currently appears on releases from the company since then.

Scare Factor: None. This logo is actually quite calming.
