1st Logo

(September 4, 1998-2007)
Celador: 1998Celador Production: 2000Celador InternationalCelador (UK) - CLG Wiki

Nicknames: "The Spinning Letters", "Celador Snake", "Drawing Letters"

Logo: On a dark blue/dark sapphire/black gradient, we see the text "celador" spinning in.

  • On Winning Lines, "A Celador Production" appears below.
  • Starting in 2002, the letters would appear drawing. The logo is bolder.
  • There is an "international" version with the corresponding word added and an arc below that almost resembles the Pearson Television logo. It was seen on the game Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?: Party Edition. Also, on the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? DVD Game, the background is pitch blue and "interactive" appears underneath the arc.
FX/SFX: The spinning letters.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Common. It's seen on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? episodes from 1998-2007 and on Winning Lines. Episodes from the U.S. version of Millionaire were last reran on GSN. The same show was originally seen on ABC airings. Who Wants to Be a Super Millionaire? was another show to carry this. The logo is common in games as well. It was also seen on Roobarb and Custard Too.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

Celador (2000)
Nickname: "Spinning Letters II"

Logo: On a black background, we see some letters spinning like wheels, which eventually reveal the marine-colored text "celador".

: The spinning variation appeared on the first 2 PlayStation adaptions of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. On all other PC and PlayStation versions, including the Dreamcast and PAL versions, the logo is black-and-white and simply fades in.

FX/SFX: The spinning letters.

Music/Sounds: A part of the show fanfare. The black-and-white variant uses a 5-note synth theme transitioning from the Disney Interactive/Buena Vista Interactive theme used as part of the games.

Availability: Seen on the PC, Dreamcast (UK and France Only) and PlayStation adaptations of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.

Editor's Note: None.

Final Note: In December 2006, Celador International was sold to the Dutch entertainment group 2waytraffic (now "Sony Pictures Television International Formats Distribution") and was reincorporated as "2waytraffic International", which was acquired by Sony Pictures' wholly-owned group 2JS Productions B.V. on June 4, 2008. However, Celador still exists independently from 2waytraffic as "Celador Entertainment".
