Logos That Scare Me
"Universal Television w/ 1979-81 music:What scared me is HBO Independent Productions. I hated it, especially the "HIP" variant. That "HIP" variation is just hideous!!!!!
This logo scares the hell out of me ever since I first heard it. The music was slowed down and had the kettledrum at the final note and it scared me to death. There are other who are scared of this too.
Hanna-Barbara "Swirling Star":
I am absolutely terrified of this logo! At the end of "The Powerpuff Girls", the music starts playing and it scares me to death!"
I thought the logo was going to suck me into the TV, and shock me to death!!!!!!

The logos that scare me and still do...
YTV "Screaming TV" - When I saw this on UTub, It startled me and scared me, but then I was releaved after a canadian female teen says "No problem!"
KlaskyCsupo "SuperScaryFace" - The first time I saw this, nothing. The second time I saw this, I screamed really loud. The logo is stupid! The robot looks dumb! Klasky and Csupo should rip this logo and tear it to pieces!
Oz Film Company "Lady of Doom" - OMGosh... The woman is weird...
Heel & Toe - This logo scares me a lot! I don't want to watch "House M.D." anymore! But.. the cut to Bad Hat Harry makes me pee my pants..... I WAS LAUGHING!
Frederator Studios "FredBot of Doom" - When I downloaded a episode of ChanFred, I screamed when I saw this! I wrote a complaint to Fred saying Plaster the second logo!. Nothing!
Renassiance Pictures "Evil Mona Lisa" - When I saw it on you tube, I was scared!
Vid - The mask is dumb and scary! People, don't look at it!
Paramount Television - The "Dum Dum Du-du-du Dun!" annoys me.
Curiosity Co. "Drops of Doom" - I saw this on Olive the Other Reindeer and I was like, What the heck?
That's all. Thanks. All honest opinions.
Scary Logos 2 - Used to Scare Me
What used to scare me was:
Klasky Csupo: all
WGBH: Boston Ident
LBS Communications: all
BBC: the old idents
THX: all, including the Broadway:
The Broadway trailers used to scare me when it was loud, but when I see it, I close the volume.
I simply got over my fear except Goodtimes. Don't let me watch it!

Logo: On a black background, we see a flash, creating the A2M logo (A star with A2M at the bottom), which spins until A2M appears.
Music/Sounds: A synth tune.
Availbility: Seen on A2M games from the era.
Scare Factor: None. Although the flash can get to some.
Nickname: "Ed, Edd n Eddy"
Logo: On a black background, characters from Ed, Edd n Eddy (Ed and Eddy) come in, with the A2M logo. Ed puts up the logo, with Eddy stuck on it. Ed runs back with "A2M" and Edd (Also stuck on the logo), then spins the logo, causing Edd and Eddy to bounce. The logo keeps spinning until it slows.
Variant: On the GBA version, we see a gumball machine, which shoots out a gumball, which drops and the A2M logo is formed.
FX: The character's animation.
Music/Sounds: A piano drum tune, following by Ed laughing. The music turns strange, then Eddy says "What the....?!". When Ed puts up another part of the logo, he says "FORGIVE ME!!!". Cartoonish sounds are heard throughout. For the GBA variant, a gumball machine sound, followed by a crash, then Ed laughing.
Availbility: Rare. Only seen on Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Ed-Ventures.
Scare Factor: Low. But it's none for Ed, Edd n Eddy fans!
Nickname: "How Did It Get Boring?"
Logo: On a black background, we see the A2M logo of the time. On Happy Feet, it's red.
FX: None. It's a still logo.
Music/Sounds: The opening of the game, or none.
Availbility: Common. Seen on all A2M games of the time, like Happy Feet, High School Musical: Makin' the Cut!, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe, Kung Fu Panda: Legendary Warriors, and Power Rangers: Super Legends.
Scare Factor: None. It's as boring as it gets.

Nickname: MMG of Doom, What the Heck is Goin' On Here?!
Logo: On a blue-black background, a ring appears. It then divides into many rings. Then the background turns into a kalidoscope-thing. Then, the letters M, O, S, A, I and C fly out of nowhere. The background then turns into black. The ring, with Mosaic, in a Garamond-italicized font, with Media Group in Georgia, appears zooming back. Then, a flash occurs, causing the logo to stay still. Then we fade to black.
FX/SFX: The kalidoscope background and the logo.
Music/Sounds: A dreamy synth twinkle when the ring appears, a dreamy tune when the kaldoscope appears, then a triumphant fanfare.
Variant: A short version exists, when the logo is there, and no animation.
Avalibility: Common. Seen at the end of Mosaic-produced films like Get Smart, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Rollerball and Scooby-Doo.
Scare Factor: Low to Median: The music and logo can put a lotta scares, but it's pretty cool.

Logos that still or used to Scare the Pants off of Me
By a WIDE margin: What I call "That *&%^$!#@ Mask" underneath "Leo-the-Lion." And I esp. mean That Mask underneath (as I learned) "Coffee," when it was blood-red, in three-strip color. He was not Metro-Goldwyn's first "Leo" in Technicolor. (Leo had been photographed in t-w-o-strip color: back in 1928, & again in 1932. Now-&-again, you can catch r-a-r-e comedy-shorts with both versions---and the VERY rare, Harmon/Ising cartoons from 1934-35?---on Turner Classic Movies.) But That Mask underneath a v-e-r-y angry "Coffee"...!
Most film/T.V. logos which frightened me as a child...even in jr. high...I've overcome by now. All had at least one trait in common: black backgrounds. Until ages 12-13 (7th Grade)...when I was on a "flapper-addiction," and had more opportunities to view silent films (at B'ham's Ala. School of Fine Arts, 80 m. East of us) than I'd have had in Fayette Jr. High...I'd never known that theatre interiors had to be as d-a-r-k as possible.
In later "reply," I'll tell you w-h-y I've still had nightmares about That Mask; from age seven (1971) even through 1990s! If I knew h-o-w to insert v-i-s-u-a-l-s into these messages---I'd show you truly frightening, Bacardi Rum poster (resembles "carved-wood," Pacific island, "tiki" totem) which also shows why M-G-M's Mask still scares me. As I'm an aspiring animator, I'd recommend opening animation for Disney's TV version of "Lilo & Stitch," to boot. Anyhow: This graphic-designer is looking for a-n-y Pacific Art & Title employee, or retiree, or any descendant of Howard Dietz (V.P. of M-G-M Publicity)---who belongs to Closing Logos' Web-site. THEY'D have answers!
Very gratefully yours, Michael Shepherd / Acts 4: 5--12

What kind of logos that Family Home Entertainment scares you?
I was scared for the 2nd Family Home Entertainment logo because of that gigantic paintbrush. Any other logos from Family Home Entertainment scared you? There is the "Soda Pop", "Kindergarden Writing", "The Paintbrush", or Family Home Entertainment Kids, 1998 logo, and the 2001 logo?

Abolish the Scare Factor?
Don't get rid of the scare factors. They've been around since the KRS Logos days.

Check Those Scare Factors!
Much has been made about the scare factors of the MGM lion mascots. Here's the list of how you think it's scary:
1) NONE (for Slats) - Because, he can't roar. Warner Bros. has planned the DVD release of "He Who Gets Slapped" but was cancelled so you can't see Slats because plastering with Jackie.
2) LOW (for Jackie) - Jackie was moderated.
3) LOW - HIGH (for Telly)
4) MODERATE - HIGH (for Coffee)
5) HIGH (for Tanner) - Because, Tanner was evil! *screams like the Dualstar Interactive logo from some Club Acclaim-published Mary Kate & Ashley games*
6) MODERATE (for Jackie II or Bob)
7) LOW - MEDIUM (for Leo, a.k.a. Jackie III)
So run away for your lives as Tanner appears in the MGM logo to be angry! Fires aweigh!

3 Funny FBI Warnings, and what I am scared of
Hi! I'm new here!
Here are 2 funny FBI warnings. First is one where you may have to pause the video to find out why it is funny, just read the copyright!
Here's one where you have to watch to the end after the warning to see what is funny!
Finally, here is one that is probally NSFW because some of the wording is innapropiate.
Although I don't live in the UK, I am scared of this. Maybe it's the announcer, because I had a nightmare were I heard this, and then woke up before the speech finished.
There's also an FCI logo that's used on DVD releases of the show.It's a still w/ the FCI logo as seen in logo #2 in black on a white background w/ red lines and a drawing of the trolley next to"Family."And below all that is the website.I have this on my MRN DVD"What Do You Do With The Mad That You Feel?"_.

Nickname: "CGI City Skyline Searchlights II"
Logo: A redone and more realistic version of the 1995 Fox Searchlight Pictures logo; this time, it is in a dark/orange evening environment.

FX/SFX: Same as before.
Music/Sounds: The 1997 Fox fanfare.
