Background: Fuzzy Door Productions is the vanity company of Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy and The Orville as well as the co-creator of American Dad! and The Cleveland Show. It was established in 1996 and did not use a logo until 1999, when Family Guy premiered.

1st Logo
(January 31, 1999- )

Nicknames: "The Spotted Door", "The Leopard Print Door", "Fuzzy Door"

Logo: On a black background, we see a door partly open with a leopard print design on it. Below the door are the words "FUZZY DOOR", and below them is the smaller Fuzzy Door Productions (2008)"PRODUCTIONS™", both in the Lithos Pro bold font.

Trivia: The name of the company and logo design comes from the leopard-printed fake fur-covered door to the house MacFarlane lived in when he was attending Rhode Island School of Design as an undergraduate in animation.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Usually silent, though the first two episodes of Family Guy have a brief ditty that resembles the theme song (except the DVD prints and Netflix's print of the second episode, although when the DVD's commentary for the first episode is turned on, you can hear it over the dialogue), possibly because Fox used split screen credits at the time (they still do, actually), so they wanted to give the logo closing music instead of it being silent. Some episodes of Family Guy have the last note of the show's theme song echo. The Winner has the end theme.

Availability: Common. Currently seen on most episodes of Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, American Dad!, and the online series Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy. It was also seen on the live-action shows The Winner, Dads, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, and Blunt Talk, as well as at the end of the films Ted, A Million Ways to Die in the West, and Ted 2. Some later episodes of Family Guy like "And Then There Were Fewer" and "Chris Cross" skip the logo, though the syndie prints of said episodes add this logo to it (8ACX01 syndie print only; 8ACX02 doesn't show it). It is also seen on the new series The Orville. Syndie prints of American Dad!, The Cleveland Show and later episodes of Family Guy with this logo often skip it possibly due to time.

Editor's Note: This logo is a favorite amongst fans of Family Guy and Seth MacFarlane's works in general.
2nd Logo
(November 10, 2019-)
Nicknames: "The Not Fuzzy Door", "Where's the Fuzz?", "Non-Fuzzy Bore"

Logo: On a blue background the words "FUZZY DOOR" is seen in white and spaced out. In between the two words is a white door that's cracked open.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Debuted on the Family Guy episode "Peter & Lois' Wedding".

Editor's Note: Many would be confused onto why the door is simply white when the company is named "Fuzzy Door". It is also looked down upon as it's another downgrade in a decade trend of simplified logos.
