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!!!!!!

1st logo's scare factor...
"Well, nobody's gonna change it to nightmare just because it scares only you and maybe one or two other people at most. It's not /that/ infamous. "Whaaa--? It doesn't scare ME. As I said before, scary logos don't get to me.
I'm just telling what my point of view is, that's all.
And let me tell you: I could change it to "Nightmare" if I wanted to. No matter if someone ends up reverting it to "High", it'll just show that this is really what most users here think of it. Plus, I thought my point of view mentioned above was pretty logical.

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.

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

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

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.
We are not able to post personal thoughts on scare factors.
"I have featured this thread, as I figure community members should read it."That's why we have the page "What logos scares you and/or annoys you?" Obviously other users can't seem to understand why we have that page for. They're supposed to make threads on logos that scares them. NOT any other pages especially the home page!

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo.
Scare Factor: Same as the previous logo.

The 4th Logo Scare Factor is supposed to be Low not Medium to High! I don't know what careless person did that.....

2nd Logo (2011- )
Here's what I have so far.
Logo: On a green background, we see a black semi-circle, with (in white) "PRODUCTIONS" next to it. The "smile" (which is referred as this way from now on) is holding a string. It pulls the string, rising PRODUCTIONS up a bit, and the string to fall behind the smile. It takes a bow, as "tbs" jumps up above it, landing on top of the smile.
FX: Cool CGI. This was produced by Ferro-Concrete and ShadedBox Animations.
Scare Factor: None. This is a cool logo.
If you have more info, please share it! Oh, and in the vid, the logo is seen at 1:04.

Logo: On a white marble background, parts of what looks like a giant computer/TV appear in the right of the screen. Coming together, they spin around and zoom in to the screen. Then, a red box appears via "blinds" effect and spins in 3D while a giant "V", rendered in 3D, spins from the left of the screen. While this is happening, the screen turns black. When the box and "V" come together, the screen turns light gray, although a black rectangle remains. The rest of "ideo" fades in and some lines pop from below the "VIDEO" box and morph into the word "COLLECTION". Then, the logo makes a shadow effect.
The name of the company would have its name changed in a different language, depending on where the tapes were sold. For instance, on PAL tapes in Spain, the logo reads "Video Colección''.
Another variant is that the words read "Video Music Collection".
FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The animation seems tacky.
Music/Sounds: A synthetic thunderclap, then a little synthesized organ-like ditty. It ends with two timpani beats. On some Spanish PAL tapes, an announcer can be heard thanking us for buying or renting the tape, in Spanish, of course! On some promos, an announcer can be heard.
Availability: Can be seen on later Thomas the Tank Engine releases in the UK. The early Thomas the Tank Engine releases had the Screen Legends logo. The Spanish variant can be seen on Yogi's First Christmas. Many think this logo ended in 1994, some others think it ended in 1995, but it made a suprise appearance on a 1998 print of Sesame Street - Big Bird's Favorite Party Games. This logo debuted in 1986, on She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, and didn't appear again until 1988.
Scare Factor: Low to medium, due to the animation, thunderclap, and music, but this is perhaps a cool logo.

Nickname: "Zooming-Out CBS Eye of Doom"
Logo: The eye symbol comes in backwards instead of forward in this particular ID with a grainy, black and white background. "C-B-S" are typed with a dramatic fashion in white.
Variant:Color porgrams are blue.
FX: Eye zoomed backwards and the appearance of the letters.
Music/Sounds: A commanding trumpet with a menacing, cacophonous finish. No announcer.
Availability: Extinct; seen originally on Hogan's Heroes, Pistols 'N' Petticoats, Hazel, Lassie, My Favorite Martian, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Lucy Show, The Andy Griffith Show, Captain Kangroo, Password, Art Linkletter's House Party, The Red Skelton Hour, The Jackie Gleason Show, To Tell the Truth, What's My Line?, I've Got a Secret, Mission: Impossible, Gunsmoke and The Gary Moore Show.
Scare Factor: Medium to high, due to the music.
