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 shining that shows the reflection of the studio's name, then "IMAGINE" 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 inbetween the company name. This was seen on HouseSitter.

Trivia: This logo was still used as the print logo 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!" variantImagine Entertainment (Psycho)

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

Logo: On a black background, we see a water drop at the very top of the screen that is almost ready to drip, then it drips into the water, causing the water to ripple for a few seconds. Suddenly, at the same time, the word "IMAGINE" appears being reflected inside and waving for a few seconds before the text finally settles into its view. Shortly after that, the word "ENTERTAINMENT", in spaced-out letters, appears underneath "IMAGINE".

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

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

Music/Sounds: A fantasy-oriented 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 Universal releases and some Columbia releases since then. However, the print logo is still the 1988-1996 logo. The still version can be seen on Curious George (the 2006 series) on PBS.

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