Nicknames: "Cracking Hart", "The Broken Hart"

Logo: On a white background, we see a red heart outline, which cracks like an egg, releasing a script "H" in a red box, which "artbreak Films, Inc." emerges from.

  • On season 1 episodes of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch (when Finishing The Hat Productions still produced the show) a still shot of the logo was used.
  • On at least one episode of Sabrina, The Animated Series, the logo is animated differently. The left piece of the heart drops instead of falling down, there is no drop shadow on the right piece of the heart, and the text appears via wipe transition instead of entering from the "H".
  • On the TV movie The Right Connections and a Russian airing of The Scream Team, before cracking, the heart constantly zooms in and out (a la heartbeat) before cracking.

FX/SFX: The heart cracking and the company name appearing.

Music/Sounds: Just the sound of the heart cracking and a loud, squeaky creak, the end theme of the show or generic ABC or NBC music starting in 1998 until 2000, on the still version, we hear the end of the Finishing The Hat Productions logo music. Sometimes, only the heart cracking sound is heard.

Availability: Current. Can be seen on Sabrina, The Teenage Witch on DVD (released by Paramount Pictures through CBS DVD), and Antenna TV, and Sabrina: The Animated Series. Also seen on Melissa & Joey and the TV movies The Right Connections, My Fake Fiance,
Up, Up and Away, Two Came Back, and The Scream Team.
