Logos in Popular Culture

From Closing Logos
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Several logos have been referenced and/or spoofed in other media, often with humorous results. Here's a list of some of them.


The Muppets (1955-):The Muppets franchise can sometimes make parodies of famous logos.

In the 1981 specialThe Muppets Go to the Movies, there is an MGM logo parody known as "Metro-Goldwyn-Bear", where Fozzie is in place of Leo.

<img align="bottom" alt="Metro-Goldwyn-Bear" height="236" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/42243bd733746fa0c83dd4f5a59882ad/GW300H236" title="Metro-Goldwyn-Bear" width="300"/>

The special even did the same thing with the 20th Century Fox logo, calling it "20th Century Frog".

The special also did the same thing parodying the Rank logo as "J. Arthur Link," with Link Hogthrob as the gongman.

If that wasn't enough, they did a parody of the Paramount Pictures logo as "Tantamount Pictures".

<img align="bottom" alt="Tantamount Pictures" height="250" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/7191551c08ab9c34667cf622e6e6748a/GW312H250" title="Tantamount Pictures" width="312"/>

Another MGM parody. InThe Great Muppet Caper, Animal is in place of Leo, and the text reads "Lord Grade Presents". Lord Grade is a nod to "Lord" Lew Grade, the founder of ITC Entertainment, which originally distributed this film.

YetanotherMGM parody. This time, from an episode ofMuppet Babies. In "The Daily Muppet", Baby Animal is in place of Leo, where as Baby Gonzo is in place of the mask.

<img align="bottom" alt="Muppet Babies MGM Parody." height="258" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/24cab13ceba8ec3220a73bced319d354/GW338H258" title="Muppet Babies MGM Parody." width="338"/>

Jeopardy (1964-1975, 1978-1979, 1984-):In an unknown Celebrity Jeopardy episode from the 1964-1975 Art Fleming era (only known as it was seen in the final Fleming era episode from 1975, one of the only Fleming episodes to still exist period), a Daily Double uncovered by Gene Shalit asked to identify the NBC jingle. Gene briefly jokes that the answer is NOT "an eye" (CBS of course) then states "That would be the very famous NBC peacock". He is reminded it has to be in the form of a question, so rewords it to "Has anyone around here seenthe very famous NBC peacock?". This was accepted.
On the episode aired on December 22, 1993, a Video Daily Double showing the 1992 Columbia Pictures logo painting, the 1993 Merv Griffin logo, and the 1992 TriStar Pictures logo painting. The question was "This is the Merv Griffin logo, this is the Columbia logo, and the following is this company's." The answer was "What is TriStar?"
In the May 13th, 2015 episode (Show #7068). One of the questions asked is "This late creator of "Family Ties" wrote the memoir "Sit, Ubu, Sit" (referring to the UBU Productions logo). None of the contests got it right. The correct answer was Gary David Goldberg.

Sesame Street (1969-) and its co-productions and dubs (1971-):Episode 2911 features a parody of the MGM logo.

<img align="bottom" alt="Sesame Street MGM parody." height="279" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/6fe1332b00fa174bcc3fbd2ba1f905f4/GW361H279" title="Sesame Street MGM parody." width="361"/>

On Episode 3423, a chicken is in place of the lion for "The Chicken King" sketch. This is a parody of MGM and The Walt Disney Company, as the text in this spoof on the top is called "Walt Dizzy Presents" and the drama mask is labeled "WD" (for "Walt Dizzy", also a parody of the Warner Bros. shield).

<img align="bottom" alt="Walt Dizzy Presents" height="265" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/c5e5ce0757fa1f9f470ba23ac86a0b8d/GW354H265" title="Walt Dizzy Presents" width="354"/>

There also is another MGM parody where Big Bird is inside the circle. It was shown in Sesame Street's Brief History of Motion Pictures.

<img align="bottom" alt="Another Sesame Street parody of MGM." height="242" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/72e7368d9d79f2c294a40fc7e9b2c966/GW427H242" title="Another Sesame Street parody of MGM." width="427"/>

In the beginning of the 2013 TV movie of the GermanSesame Streetco-productionSesamstraßetitled "The Secret of the Flower Factory", Wolle roars with Leo's roar. The sides of the graphic have carrots instead of filmstrips, the text on the top is titled "Sesame Street presents" (in German, "Sesamstraße präsentiert"), the left is "Carrot" (Möhre) and the right is "MMXIII", and "OVIS OVEM MANET" is Latin for "Sheep Remain Sheep." There is no drama mask below the circle frame.

<img align="bottom" alt="MGM (Sesame Street Presents Parody)" height="244" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/4142ebabfcf03df2f8d330b1e1701d77/GW435H244" title="MGM (Sesame Street Presents Parody)" width="435"/>

On trailers for the Cookie's Crumby Pictures segment, we see a rotating cookie on a space background with the text "Crumby" (with icing) zooming out and the "pictures" fading in below and then Cookie Monster from the bottom right jumps and chomps on the cookie causing the crumb debris to explode and the text to orbit away from the screen. This logo parodies Universal's logo sequence and the Columbia Pictures music. A Spanish dubbed version also exists. In that spoof variant, the text for the logo zooms out below"producciones" and was named "Migajas". On several Spanish dubbed theatrical trailers on the sketch, Cookie Monster's nom sound effect is different. Additionally, a Portuguese version exists on the Brazilian co-production Sesamo and an Arabic version on the UAE co-production Iftah Ya Simsim. Because there are German dubbed trailers onSesamstraße(the German co-production ofSesame Street), don't expect to see the German version of the logo as they don't have it and was never made.

Saturday Night Live (1975 -): This showveryoften uses authentic TV station graphics and bugs whenever the need to do so in a skit arises, being allowed to do so under utilization of parody law. For the sake of being concise, this will only list non-TV logo references or long animations alluding to one specific logo:
The skit "The Anal-Retentive Sportsman: Fishing" (From episode 5/13/1989: Wayne Gretzky/Fine Young Cannibals) uses a 3D rendered parody of the first Split logo complete with the actual animation and jingle.

The episode 1/15/2000 (Freddie Prinze Jr./Macy Gray) begins with the 2nd PBS logo (oddly as they tended to use the more relevant ones as the other examples can attest).

11/13/1982 (Robert Blake/Kenny Loggins) begins with a take on the 2nd logo also. Here, the words "PUBLIC BROADCASTING SERVICE" are removed, the P-Head is green, the "B" is red, and the "S" is blue.

"The Day Beyonce Turned Black" from the 2/13/2016 episode (Melissa McCarthy/Kanye West) begins with the actual 2012 Universal logo (presumably obtained as NBC owns them both).

The skit "New HBO Shows" from the 4/6/2019 episode (Kit Harrington/Sara Bareilles) begins and ends with the real 1993 HBO Entertainment logo. At the end occurrence, the announcerimitates the TV turning on and synth note a second before the actual logo plays. After the logo plays, he can be heard with a sheepish "Ohhh...I didn't know we had the sound."

A desk lamp is briefly labeled as a "Pixar lamp"in the skit "Hobby Song" from the 4/13/2019 episode (Emma Stone/BTS) of the show.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988-1999, 2017-):On KTMA version ofCosmic Princess(a movie consisting of two episodes ofSpace: 1999edited together), theITClogo appears by which Tom asks "Is it just me or whenever I see that ITC sign do you think ofThe Muppet Show?", when Joel says "It's the Muppet Show", Tom doing an impression of Kermit saying "It's the Muppet Show with our very special guest star, Fozzie Bear!"

OnGamera, the 1985King Features Entertainmentlogo plays, Crow and Tom Servo looks at the logo, as Joel says "let's get outta here" when their leaving theater, Tom Servo says "that's a good crown".

InUntamed Youth, a rare movie on the show made by a big six studio, when the 1948 Warner Bros is shown (bizarrely preceded by the 1984/then-current at time of episode Warner Bros logo, although the latter plays before Joel and co get into the theater), Tom Servo expresses relief it is at least from a competent studio.
Universal was far and away the most prominent big-six studio on the show:

Riding with Death(a TV movie consisting of two episodes ofGemini Manedited together) begins with the 1971 Universal logo. The following riffs are made on it:
(as logo is zooming through space, Tom Servo imitates theme toThe Jetsonsand a flying car from said show)
(logo has formed)
Mike: “Universal...except for YOU, Ron.”
Crow: “You know, the Earth thinks it's so great.”
Tom Servo: “Yeah, it thinks the whole world revolves around itself.”
Kitten with a Whiphas the original 1963 version of the same Universal logo riffed:
Tom Servo: (referring to the opening theme) "It's a SWINGIN world, abby!"
Crow: "It's Universal, it covers EVERYTHING."
Likewise,The Leech Womanhas the 1946 Universal logo (Universal International):
Tom Servo: "I'm gonna spit in the ocean." (pretends to do just that)
Crow: "...the Earth has male-pattern baldness"
Same 1946 logo is seen onThe Mole People:
Tom Servo: "Hey, the Earth from Shannon Lucid's point of view."
Crow: "...so, the Earth has neutral weather"
The Projected Manbegins with the Presents version of the 1963 logo:
Mike: "Oh hey... Faberge presents" (the squished print has made the globe egg shaped)
Tom Servo: (singing) "The incredible, edible Earth!" (still building off the egg joke, this plays off an old American Egg Board campaign)
(the opening theme of the movie over the logo has gone into a motion resembling the final notes of an end theme, then stops)
Crow: "Oh hey, it's the end. I guess we were late." (is refused)

At the end of theThe Gumby Showepisode "Robot Rumpus", which is used as the short in the episodeThe Screaming Skull(one of the very few instances where a TV episode was a short), the Cloaky Productions logo is shown. The lone riff is that Mike points out the Gumby in the logo has his head bump on the wrong side.

12 to the Moon, another rare non-Universal big six studio movie on the show, begins with the 1955 Columbia logo. The crew spends the whole logo catcalling the Torch Lady.

San Francisco International, a pilot movie to a TV show, begins with the longer version of the 1969 Universal Television logo. The lone riff is Tom Servo saying "OKAY, big freaking deal" (probably a riff at the company name being oversized).

Escape 2000begins with the 1982 Samuel Goldwyn Television logo riffed as such:
(signature is writing itself in)
Mike: "Hey, why is John Madden signing Samuel Goldwyn's signature?"
Crow: "Samuel Goldwyn: father of the Constitution."

Puma Manbegins with the Cinema Shares International Distribution logo, the lone riff being Tom Servo finds it an awesomely over the top company name.

The Wild Wild World of Batwomanopens with the Medallion TV Enterprises logo:
Mike: "Hey, I have my four-year TV medallion."
Tom Servo: "What do you do when your branded? We watch TV." (reference to theme song of the showBranded)

Same logo is onThe Slime People,only riff is Joel imitates a cymbal after the fanfare.

Some episodes have references to logos asides from riffs on the ones on the featured films:
In one of the host segments of the episodeTeenagers from Outer Space,Tom Servo discusses making a TriStar logo for a film festival. It ultimately turns out he used a (plush) cow instead of a horse.

InOverdrawn at the Memory Bank, the 1937 Warner Bros logo shows up within a scene of the film itself (asCasablancais a major plot point in the film). This exchange occurs thusly:
"He had a terrible job: monitoring routine data output on global climate control."
logo has shown up
Mike: "And its effect on Bugs Bunny."

InThe Crawling Eye,when a mountain shot is shown, Servo states it must be a Paramount picture.

When the American International Television logo is shown at the beginning ofThe Day the Earth Froze, Joel says "How can something be AmericanandInternational?"

When Stryker looks at the Earth through his monitor at the beginning ofStranded in Space, Servo shouts: "It's a Universal picture!"

When Crow compliments "the great masonry work on the tiles" ofGorgo, Servo replies, "It was made by the guys at Mark VII Productions."

Early in The Screaming Skull, Jenny runs toward a flock of peacocks, leading Mike to respond with "Help us! NBC is after us! Hide us!"

Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!! (1989-): Commonly referred to as "Gaki no Tsukai", this Japanese variety show hosted by popular Japanese comedy duo, Downtown, had an episode in which Itsuji Itao asks the Gaki no Tsukai cast to participate in a quiz show hosted by himself (with his wife). When Masatoshi Hamada is asked if he would like to "Skill-Up" after he answered a question correctly, he replies with "Yes", and soon a woman brings Hamada a prize; an "It's Jii Pendant". The 20th Century Fox fanfare can be heard as the woman brings the prize (Go to 09:12).

Оба-на! (1990-1995): A spoof of the VID logo was seen on an episode of that show beginning with a man from the show superimposed over the ball/line animation, panicking and freaking out over it, and then sliding down as the ball falls off the line. It then proceeds normally, until, a few seconds after the mask is seen, it then fades into a gray-scale version of the face of Russian writer/comedian Igor Ugolnikov, whom says in an electronically-distorted voice in Russian, "VID, VID. Nothing is viewed from your view!" and then smiles as we hear the audience whistle and the opening theme play.

Bill Nye the Science Guy (1993-1998): The episode "Sound" opens with a parody of theTHXlogo that reads "SOUND: THE AUDIENCE IS LISTENING.

Sometimes on fake trailers for parodies of famous movies, a parody of the 1963Universal Studioslogo is seen at the beginning. In this parody, the word "UNIVERSAL" is replaced by the word "UNYEVERSAL", and the globe is replaced by Bill Nye's head, which spins.
The Ferals (1994-1995):In one episode, the MGM logo has Rattus in place of Leo imitating his roars.
Micro Kid's Multimedia (1995-1997, France): Almost at the end of an episode aired on June 22, 1997, the 20th Century Fox theme can be heard at one point. The video can be played<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Szy7sAwSREY" target="_self">here</a>. (NOTE: Skip to 11:38 to hear the logo theme cameo).
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003): In the episode "Bargaining, Part 1", Tara gives Giles a rubber finger monster and says "Grr, argh", referencing the show's own Mutant Enemy logo.
The O Show (aka steve.oedekerk.com, 1997):The beginning of this NBC special had the "O" from the first O Entertainment logo fly to the center of the screen as the THX Deep note was heard.
Real Time with Bill Maher(2003-):In the 5/19/17 episode, whilst giving a brief soliloquy to the recently-deceased Brad Grey, Maher alludes to the show's ownBrad Grey Televisionlogo: "You see his name in the credits. Most of the time, when you see people's names in the credits, it's bullsh*t. Not in this case."

Dave Mercer's Facts of Fishing (2007-): At the beginning of early episodes from this show, an MGM logo parody appears much like the lastMGM/UA Home Videologo, before we see Dave Mercer appear in the circle and roar. The music in the background happens to share the same music as the last International Video Entertainment logo.

The Hamster Wheel (2011-2012): This satirical series from Australian comedy group The Chaser has parodied several logos, such as the Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder,Shine Australia,Gracie Films,Thames,Ubu Productions,Southern Star, andStephen J. Cannell Productionslogos.

Here's the lines and effects heard/used in the parodies:

CJZ: This is the show's actual logo. Underneath the logo it says "Now with 100% less Denton".

Shine Australia: The text under the logo says "Inspire, Create, Steal. Remaking overseas formats since 2010." Instead of the actual slogan.

Gracie Films: Someone says "This theater smell of sp**m to you?" and then the logo plays as normal.

Thames: The logo plays as normal until when the buildings finish rising out of the river where a boat sails from the right side of the screen to the middle of the river and then we hear Tony Abbott say "Stop the boats!" which is a line used by him once when he was referring to the asylum seeker boats carrying illegal immigrants to Australia.

UBU Productions: We hear a guy say "Sit, Ubu, Sit! I said SIT, you f*cking mongrel!... Ubu, if you don't sit right this second, I'm gonna ram that Frisbee so far down your throat... oh, f*ck it. I knew we should've bought a cat." Ubu then barks.

Southern Star: The text "We apologise forBig Brother" replaces the actual slogan.

Stephen J. Cannell Productions: We see a different person in place of Stephen J. Cannell during the typewriter sequence. When he throws the paper, it animates like normal before we go back to the man and the paper hits him in the face.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (2014 -):In the 11/4/2018 episode ("Family Separation" as main story), in the opening monologue, John make fun of an indecent where Nebraska chief of staff Reyn Archer got enraged at a local professor for the latter having liked an image of a vandalized sign of Nebraska senator Jeff Fortenberry on Facebook. Reyn Archer states it's as bad as if the professor had liked a photo of blackface, to which John just states "...no, blackface is not acceptable". This is promptly accompanied with a live action man dressed as the NBC peacock, complete with the chimes rendered in trumpets, ready to make John Oliver the newToday Showhost (a jab at the firing of former host Megyn Kelly for saying she thinks blackface is acceptable). The peacock still persists and Oliver has to tell him he wasn't serious about replacing Kelly, to which the peacock leaves.

Hairspray Live (2016): The NBC logo appears in the opening scene along with the three note chime.
Impractical Jokers (2011-): During the introductory scene from the Thirteneth episode of Season 5, the Q-Sound logo can be seen in the BG when Q says his line. The game in question (though blacked out during this shoot for copyright reasons) is Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium 2001 (which can be seen online and most likely in the restaurant, as this episode was filmed at the Evil Olive Pizza Bar in New York).

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (2011): The 20th Century Fox
(2010-) logo is seen in a theater, but the 2nd part of the logo
stops abruptly due to a dangerous threat in the theater. (Seen in Season 7, Episode 11)

Alvin and the Chipmunks (1958-present):The MGM logo is parodied in the intro forThe Chipmunks Go to the Movies, with Alvin in place of Leo.

<img align="bottom" alt="The Chipmunks Go to the Movies title card." height="225" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/938a8bcdb0532af8cfaba4fe6afa4ab1/GW300H225" title="The Chipmunks Go to the Movies title card." width="300"/>

Henry's Cat (1983-1995): This BBC children's series opened with a titular character meowing inside the "O" of the giant red text "BOB", with a banner reading "GODFREY FILMS LIMITED" and "PRESENTS" under it, in a parody of the MGM logo, the last 2 seasons of Henry's Cat had this logo but it was sped up, but it's unknown if US airings (on Nickelodeon'sPinwheeland Showtime) had this logo.

<img align="bottom" alt="Bob Godfrey Films (1980s)" height="226" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/20279c8c6662e5f32e7f57122a7226bc/GW289H226" title="Bob Godfrey Films (1980s)" width="289"/><iframe frameborder="0" height="228" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/unknown/0245909e6bd7e780af2781ee0fd9cfaee858fd22" width="405"></iframe>

Dragon Ball (1986-1989): The episode "He's Here! The Mighty Enemy Giran" ("Monster Beast Giran" on English releases) has a parody of the 1978Golden Harvestlogo.The spoof has parts of the Japanese character "武" in the World Martial Arts Tournament logo appear in the same way the rectangles appear.

<img align="bottom" alt='Dragon Ball" Golden Harvest Logo Parody' height="251" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/494448cb57f28b229dc5fa95d79cfa05/GW334H251" title='Dragon Ball" Golden Harvest Logo Parody' width="334"/>

Dragon Ball Z (1989-1996):On one episode, the Toei logo is parodied in which the logo is cartoonized and the Toei triangle instead reads "ZTV".

<img align="bottom" alt="ZTV (DBZ Toei logo parody)" height="255" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/f6d44213ae3442ff1a9545fd66c8db01/GW339H255" title="ZTV (DBZ Toei logo parody)" width="339"/>

Fireman Sam (1987 series): In the episode, "Telly Trouble", when a television program was about to start in one scene, a parody of the BBC1 logo was seen on the TV. It looks the same as a normal BBC1 ident, but the globe has a cartoonish look and the text in the bottom of the globe says "PTV1", which stands for "Pontypandy Television One".

<img alt="File:PTV1.png" height="232" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/4ff421be49327dd5665f56f0f813f4e9/GW326H232" title="File:PTV1.png" width="326"/>

The Simpsons (1989-): In the episode "Burns' Heir," there is a parody of aTHXtrailer when the Simpson family goes to seeSiskel & Ebert: The Movie, with the official Deep Note heard (the blue rectangle from the 2nd trailer is even a transition to the scene in the official THX trailer when they actually adopted the scene). The Deep Note, however, leads to some catastrophic results in the theater...

<img align="bottom" alt="Simpsons THX logo" height="212" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/3963eed3be34f87581030c8a6aa03f91/GW283H212" title="Simpsons THX logo" width="283"/><iframe frameborder="0" height="213" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/unknown/87c3f7892421a8b9e6c171603dba57037baedd91" width="377"></iframe>

...and on the episode "The Front," the Stephen J. Cannell logo is parodied with Scratchy in Cannell's place and Itchy on his shoulder. The final product has an "I & S" on the paper with "Itchy & Scratchy Productions" above. The music is a remix of the original theme.

On the episode "The Bart Wants What It Wants", when the Simpsons family have to go to Canada in order to find Bart's ex-girlfriend Greta Wolfcastle and her new boyfriend Milhouse, they visit a studio called "Paramountie Studios" (and not to mention find her there). The sign shows a Canadian Mountie's hat (with ridges on it that are similar to the the mountain on the 1975Paramount Pictureslogo, or the studio's 1968 print logo). Above the hat is "Paramountie" and under it is "Studios", both in the same font as the Paramount logo. The logo is surrounded by 20 stars. It should also be noted that the gate that the logo is on is the same as the one at the entrance to Paramount's studio lot.

<img align="bottom" alt="Paramount Pictures Logo Parody (The Simpsons)" height="189" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/0a281808140da0d37296968e12cca626/GW250H189" title="Paramount Pictures Logo Parody (The Simpsons)" width="250"/>

On the episode "Cue Detective," when Skinner shows the kids at Springfield ElementaryDoctor Dolittle, we briefly see the 1953 20th Century Fox logo with the straight "0" (the logo which the original film had) at the beginning, and in typical biting-the-hand fashion, we hear the children making sounds of disappointment.

<img align="bottom" alt="20th Century Fox (1967/2015)" height="244" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/2e596167e6d8f7c305e3173cf6161451/GW402H244" title="20th Century Fox (1967/2015)" width="402"/>

At the end of "You Kent Always Say What You Want", Homer is about to tell the audience a secret about the FOX network (the first time having had his voice overdubbed) only to be cut off by the20th Century Fox Televisionlogo. After this, we cut to him on a white background (the presumed implication being the episode was forcibly ended at this point) ready to tell it again, before being cut off again, this time by theGracie Filmslogo.

Near the end of "The Last Temptation of Krust", the song/montage of Krusty driving is interrupted by the 1995 TCFTV logo with 1997 fanfare, which is then pushed away to resume the remainder of the episode (preserved in syndication).

The beginning of the episode "Treehouse of Horror XV" parodies theMark VII Limitedlogo. On a gray background, the words "TREEHOUSE OF HORROR" are written in blood. Then one green tentacle (presumably that of Kang or Kodos) holds a stamp against the background while another green tentacle strikes a hammer on the stamp twice. The stamp and hammer are pulled away to reveal "XV" instead of "VII".

In "Steal This Episode", when Bart teaches Homer how to pirate movies, it gets censored by a recreation of the Fox logo from 1987 with an announcer saying that the network is prohibited from showing how to pirate copyrighted material. It then cuts to footage of the
NASCAR 2011 Goody's Fast Relief 500 race at Martinsville, Virginia. (See right side of the image)

In "Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming", there is a scene where the 1992 20th Television fanfare is heard. At the end of the episode, the actual 20th Century Fox Television logo is seen. This is supposed to be a parody of a TV sitcom, as the episode revolved around Sideshow Bob (the villain) trying to get rid of television. On FXX airings, the enhanced version of the 20th Century Fox Television logo (with the News Corp. byline) is seen instead; however, the 1992 fanfare is still intact.

In "E-I-E-I-D'oh", the TCF-TV theme is heard just as the Simpson family is leaving the cinema after viewing a screening ofThe Poke of Zorro.

In "Missionary: Impossible", Homer becomes a missionary in order to avoid the PBS mob after pledging $10,700 to his local affiliate's pledge drive collection and not having the money to do so. Throughout the episode, a slightly modified version of the PBS logo is seen several times. At the start of the episode, the Thames logo is seen before a spoof British TV series titledDo Shut Up. (Said to be a spoof of another British series,The Young Ones). It should be noted that show originally aired on BBC Two, not ITV.

The PBS logo also appears at the start of a diversity documentary Mrs. Krabappel shows to her class in "The Italian Bob", causing all the students to be disappointed. Their disappointment only increases when they find out it was also made in association with The National Film Board of Canada.

In "The Bart of War", the PAX-TV logo appears after Marge changes the channel from Comedy Central to PAX-TV, when she won't allow Bart and Milhouse to watchSouth Park.

<img align="bottom" alt="PAX-TV Simpsons logo" height="247" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/38009a66be7b9fdc90aed57648c3683f/GW412H247" title="PAX-TV Simpsons logo" width="412"/>

The episode "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song" begins with this: the Simpsons sit on the couch just as a translucent FOX station identification logo appears in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Homer sees it, gets up from the couch, peels it off, and stomps on it (with the family joining him in stomping it) before returning to the couch.

In "Co-Dependent's Day", the Simpsons family go and seeCosmic Wars: The Gathering Shadow(an obvious parody of theStar Warsfilm series). Before the films starts, a print version of the FOX logo appears in white on a black background with a byline that reads "A DIVISION OF ORANGE JULIUS" under it. Everyone in the cinema starts cheering when it appears. The TCF-TV fanfare also plays during the logo.

<img align="bottom" alt="Yet another Fox logo parody in The Simpsons" height="278" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/6b84aa1e20c0e4f7e2dbf0fb6250edce/GW371H278" title="Yet another Fox logo parody in The Simpsons" width="371"/>

In "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass", Ned Flanders makes a violent film about Bible stories. At the start of it, a spoof of the Columbia Pictures logo appears. The text above it reads "BURNS' CELLULOID WHIMSIES" and in place of the regular torch lady is Mr Burns. We then see a close up of his face as he says "I'm richer than you!"

<img align="bottom" alt="The Simpsons Columbia Pictures logo parody" height="278" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/03d99a80999c3ca0d28e37aeb91ffdc6/GW371H278" title="The Simpsons Columbia Pictures logo parody" width="371"/>

In "Super Franchise Me", Marge starts up a sandwich restaurant franchise. When she realizes that the corporate expects you to buy 'a lot of stuff' and not care if you make money or not, she says "What kind of corporation does that?!" Just then, the FOX logo in blue appears in the bottom left corner of the screen, accompanied by a portion of the TCF-TV logo theme.

<img align="bottom" alt="Once again, another FOX logo parody from 'The Simpsons'!" height="234" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/b2c8babd51e355f4a57160b50ea9d826/GW416H234" title="Once again, another FOX logo parody from 'The Simpsons'!" width="416"/>

On the episode "When You Dish Upon a Star", the 20th Century Fox logo is seen outside of their studio. The logo is painted in gold, the searchlights are yellow, and the byline "A NEWS CORPORATION COMPANY" is replaced with "A DIVISION OF WALT DISNEY CO". In a sheer coincidence, Disney and Fox announced a merger deal on December 14, 2017, and was completed on March 20, 2019.

<img align="bottom" alt="Logo Variations - 20th Century Fox Film Corporation - CLG Wiki" height="311" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/lBQ7lTjgS6n7cLuFQtIJdA30810/GW426H311" title="Logo Variations - 20th Century Fox Film Corporation - CLG Wiki" width="426"/>

In "Homer Alone", the sound of the MGM roar is used for Marge roaring.

In "MoneyBART", at the end of a couch gag guest animated by graffiti artist Banksy showing an enormous absurdly over-the-top tragic sweatshop producingSimpsonsmerchandise, the sweatshop building is revealed to be a grungy version of the Fox structure.

In "Looking for Mr. Goodbart", at the beginning of the couch gag spoofingThe Big Bang Theory's intro, a simplistic white Fox structure explodes into the big bang.

In "Heartbreak Hotel", at the end credits, the 1990 Vin Di Bona is parodied as "Don di Bista". A soundalike of the original logo's theme is even used.

In "Lisa's Sax", The WB is parodied when Bart is about to watch a Krusty the Clown documentary. The parody has the shield in yellow, red and white, and a parody of Michigan J. Frog appears singing "we're proud to present on the WB...another bad show that no one will see.". The frog promptly leaves wanting a drink.

In "Bart vs. Thanksgiving," when Bart arrives at the dining table with the turkey, he sings a portion of the 20th Century Fox fanfare.

Tiny Toon Adventures(1990-1995): In "The Looney Beginning", there's a scene were Saul Bass' "Big W" logo is being chased around by the classic Warner Bros. "Shield" logo seen in the Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies intros.

The 1989 PBS logo was spoofed before a parody ofBarney and Friends. On a blue screen, we see cardboard cutouts of the heads of Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. They slowly turn to their left, and then SBS appears without any multi-colored lines, followed by STUPID BROADCASTING SERVICE to its right, both in yellow, as a child's voice says, "Baloney and Kids is brought to you by this station and other stations that lack clever programming." A synth piece intended to invoke the original logo's music plays throughout.

The Critic (1994-1995):In the episode "A Song for Margo", the screen bug for the Fox network logo can be seen.

<img align="bottom" alt="Fox screen bug reference in the Critic." height="252" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/90558987dab0e1b930d7922a0ede3ffa/GW333H252" title="Fox screen bug reference in the Critic." width="333"/>

Space Ghost Coast to Coast (1994-1999, 2001-2004, 2006-2008): At the end of the episode "Explode," there is a parody of the BBC bumper, as it's slowly turning Ghost Planet over BBC-style "Cartoon Network" lettering, with John Peel saying through voice-over: "Coming up next on the Cartoon Network, the Ghost Planet will explode." The beep sound is then used five times until the Ghost Planet finally explodes.

Arthur (1996-):There is a parody of theColumbialogo with Mr. Ratburn in place of the Torch Lady (which looks like it is on a church window), appearing on the episode "Buster Baxter, Cat Saver." The announcer says "21st Century Rat proudly presents"; the text below him says...

Rat is Art Backwards

Title cards for Buster-centric episodes feature a spoof of theMGMlogo with Buster "roaring" in the circle (occasionally, another sound is heard, like an elephant's trumpet or a burping noise). Arthur then appears beside Buster and laughs.

At the beginning of the season two episode "The Big Blow-Up," the Cinar and WGBH logos are seen. The Cinar logo appears on a hockey sweater and the side of a racecar. The WGBH logo is seen below the Cinar logo on the racecar. It's also worth pointing out that the hockey sweater uses the same colors as the Canadiens hockey team and that the racecar uses the same colors as the Bruins hockey team. The Canadiens play in Montreal, the same city where Cinar operated out of. The Bruins play in Boston where WGBH operates.

<img align="bottom" alt="Pokemon MGM parody" height="238" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/c1f8378eadddfbbbabe807aba961ef9a/GW423H238" title="Pokemon MGM parody" width="423"/>

South Park (1997-): On many episodes, there is a television network that parodies NBC called "HBC" (though in its first two appearances it parodied HBO with the "HBC Movie Of The Week"). Its logo consists of a multi-colored turtle instead of a peacock. However, on the episode "Best Friends Forever," it parodies ABC with "HBC World News." It again parodies NBC on the episode "The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs," with simply "HBC News" but with a peacock this time.

<img align="bottom" alt="HBC Logo (South Park NBC parody logo)" height="181" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/7511ea33491f2d9339dc13b769b4092a/GW317H181" title="HBC Logo (South Park NBC parody logo)" width="317"/><img align="bottom" alt="HBC (South Park ABC Logo Parody, Part 1)" height="184" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/a5e73bf1d1ec39bd73190aac3ee8a303/GW325H184" title="HBC (South Park ABC Logo Parody, Part 1)" width="325"/><img align="bottom" alt="HBC (South Park ABC Logo Parody, Part 2)" height="179" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/f52323fcad10afc484ab9f53279ade09/GW314H179" title="HBC (South Park ABC Logo Parody, Part 2)" width="314"/><img align="bottom" alt="HBC News (South Park NBC News Parody)" height="189" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/bf85e8c57326b77423c72a8ad96ed4b7/GW330H189" title="HBC News (South Park NBC News Parody)" width="330"/>

On the episode "Jakovasaurs," in the scene where the titular creatures appear to live in a sitcom format, a parody of theComedy Centrallogo at the time (the 4th logo) is on the bottom-right corner. Talk about poking fun at your own network!

<img align="bottom" alt="Comedy Central logo in South Park" height="217" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/659cfc83707f6fc4ad01c893d3a65c5e/GW380H217" title="Comedy Central logo in South Park" width="380"/>

In the episode "The New Terrance and Phillip Movie Trailer," Shelly gets angry at Stan and the other boys for using the television and switches the channel to the WD (parody ofThe WB) so she can watchBuffy the Vampire Slayer.

One of the side plots in the episode "Hell On Earth 2006" features the escapades of serial killers Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and John Wayne Gacy as they return to Earth attempting to bake and transport a large Ferrari cake to Satan's big costume party. The way they interact with one another mirrors that of The Three Stooges, and one scene opens with a parody of The Three Stooges intro, Columbia Torch Lady and all.

In the episode "Dances With Smurfs," the tune that plays before the school's morning announcements is a faster version of the NBC chimes with the first and second notes switched.

Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre (1998-2004):This programming block on Cartoon Network featured previews for films aired on the block that would open with a parody of another logo.

One opening parodies theParamount Pictureslogo by zooming towards the mountain with a circle of nine stars around it. The mountain tips over towards the viewer (revealing that it was only a backdrop) and the third star on the left falls down. We then zoom into the opening where the mountain was to start the preview.

<img align="bottom" alt="Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre (Paramount Pictures logo parody, Part 1)" height="235" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/c5bd65d7f81109afa687adacc82520f2/GW313H235" title="Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre (Paramount Pictures logo parody, Part 1)" width="313"/><img align="bottom" alt="Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre (Paramount Pictures parody, Part 2)" height="232" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/a897e17d79c1df8f608f05e0c87414f0/GW311H232" title="Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre (Paramount Pictures parody, Part 2)" width="311"/>

Another version parodies theColumbia Pictureslogo (although unlike theParamount Picturesparody, it does not seem to parody a specific logo from the studio) by zooming towards the Torch Lady at an angle as she struggles to get her torch to light up. She waves it in the air and then hits it against her leg. It finally light up and the screen moves to the right. As this happens, her dress gets blown up and she tries to get it back down as we move away from her.

Another version parodies theMGMlogo. We see a lion (not Leo) inside a filmstrip circle licking an ice cream cone. He then looks at the audience and gets scared. He eats the rest of his ice cream, packs some stuff in a suitcase, and leaves the circle. The camera zooms in on the circle while this happens.

Family Guy (1999-2003, 2005-):From the episode "Brian's a Bad Father"-
Lion: "When I grow up, I wanna stick my head through a circle at the beginning of movies and roar."

In the episode "Breaking Out is Hard To Do," after programming in "Asiantown" (a parody of Chinatown), theCBSeye logo appears as normal, and then morphs into an oriental-shaped eye while some stereotypical Chinese music plays, all while an announcer says, "You're watching CBS Asiantown." Syndicated prints cut this out.

<img align="bottom" alt="CBS Asiantown (Family Guy parody)" height="247" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/61c7c25af2222fbb8e31601178cf8c8b/GW367H247" title="CBS Asiantown (Family Guy parody)" width="367"/>

On the episode "The Story On Page One," there is a parody of theStephen J. Cannelllogo with Peter Griffin in Cannell's place with the music from the original logo playing, and the end result looks similar to the original (except "Stephen" is spelled "Steven").

In the episode "420", Mimsie from theMTMlogo appears in a scene and meows.

In one scene in the episode "The Son Also Draws" Brian Griffin is watching an episode ofNOVAwhen it is unexpectedly interrupted by several episodes ofOne Day at a Time. During this scene, we see a parody of the 1971PBSlogo where the P-head is facing the right; which interestingly,<a href="https://youtu.be/w6U5RS0Xp3s?t=2m13s" target="_self">was originally how the logo was going to look before it was changed to have him face the left.</a>

On the episode "Valentines Day in Quahog," a parody of the 1994-2010New Line Cinemalogo appears in the episode's intro. It has the Time Warner byline (though it is spelled out as "TimeWarner"), both filmstrips are on the sides of the box, and the box shines once.

<img align="bottom" alt="New Line Cinema (Family Guy Parody)" height="222" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/628eac7df8949e1bde00dde8d0ebf566/GW393H222" title="New Line Cinema (Family Guy Parody)" width="393"/>

In the episode "April in Quahog", theOrion Pictureslogo is parodied when Mayor Adam West punches the constellation and says "Take that Orion!" This forms the logo without any additional text. but with a little synth jingle (similar to the fanfare from the logo). West then says, "That's right. All you are is a failed production company." Ironically, the company was revived in late 2013. (Parody begins at 0:29)

<img align="bottom" alt="Orion Pictures Logo History (Family Guy)" height="202" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/0175f5ef5a84cd947d6a165ae7a779ef/GW270H202" title="Orion Pictures Logo History (Family Guy)" width="270"/><iframe frameborder="0" height="205" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/unknown/62bf93caae5afe59d3cea837719ec8a99686bd0f" width="363"></iframe>

In the episode "Friends of Peter G.," Peter and Brian watch the beginning of a movie (The Sound of Music, a Fox movie), with a 20th Century Fox logo that greatly resembles the 1994 one (slightly redesigned, with a re-orchestrated fanfare that resembles TCF), followed by multiple other logos of fictional companies that make it look like the film is starting. This is a parody of how many people tend to get annoyed at all the logos at the beginning of movies and just want the film to start (as clearly shown by Peter; parody begins at 0:19).

In "Turkey Guys", during a gag about how Nickelodeon live action sitcoms stars are uncomfortably hot, the current Nickelodeon logo is imitated.

In "Turban Cowboy", a parody of the drum Porky Pig Looney Tunes ending is seen when Peter watches a Muslim version of Looney Tunes. Instead of "that's all folks" the Porky parody says that pigs are dirty.

Futurama (1999-2003, 2008-2013): Futurama can often make parodies of logos. For example, "That's Lobstertainment!" features a logo for 30th Century Fox, which is a future version of the20th Century Foxlogo.

<img align="bottom" alt="30th Century Fox" height="283" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/1e3e622b9ef9bc7ee4796fe626dfb045/GW375H283" title="30th Century Fox" width="375"/>

Another example, the episode "Anthology of Interest II", the segment "Wizzin'", when Leela first exits the spaceship, a parody of the NBC peacock logo is seen spreading its feathers.

SpongeBob SquarePants (1999 - ): Two logo references occur in "Plankton's Army":
The episode itself concerns Plankton recruiting his extended family. They all look like the other creatures in the shows own United Plankton Pictures logo.
Later on, when Karen is making fun of Plankton for his first name of "Sheldon" by displaying it in increasingly bigger fonts, the last resembles the 1956 Four Star logo.

<img align="bottom" alt='1956 Four Star logo refrence on SpongeBob"' height="256" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/e29079e2e9efa6dcaca813b6a2c804a3/GW343H256" title='1956 Four Star logo refrence on SpongeBob"' width="343"/>

Also, in the episode "Girls Night Out", whenever someone says "gal pals", Karen displays an animation that resembles the BBC Video "Star" logo from 1980.

<img align="bottom" alt="SpongeBob BBC Video Reference" height="221" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/957d4d186498a3e45a1209f6bfdc731d/GW393H221" title="SpongeBob BBC Video Reference" width="393"/><iframe frameborder="0" height="226" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/genericvideo/5b85d0e2b715a38ff94dc036b6a372b4f75941af" width="396"></iframe>
At the end of the episode "Suction Cup Symphony", the music from the 1986 Pixar Animation logo can be heard. Considering the music from the logo is stock music, however, this was likely unintentional.

Sealab 2021 (2000-2005):In "Butchslap", they show the Cartoon Network logo on a submarine.

<img align="bottom" alt="Cartoon Network logo from Sealab 2021" height="266" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/2183dbb74bd840d08427aecaf9db86ba/GW355H266" title="Cartoon Network logo from Sealab 2021" width="355"/>

("Fitness Fiend" for the English dub), when the end credits are shown for the movie that King Dedede was watching, a parody of the Dolby logo is shown. Instead of the Double D symbol, the symbol is "DDD" (In reference of the aforementioned character).

<img align="bottom" alt="DDD (Dolby Parody)" height="284" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/f9d837027b774edcc7ce91c49a2addfe/GW375H284" title="DDD (Dolby Parody)" width="375"/>

Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi (2004-2006):The final episode "It's Alive!" opens with "A Renegade Picture". This is not only a reference toRenegade Animation, the studio that produced and animated Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, but the logo is also a reference to and parody of the 1927Universal Studioslogo.

<img align="bottom" alt="A Renegade Picture" height="230" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/7f954e2a9c56a4e91c404bcaf3f6432b/GW304H230" title="A Renegade Picture" width="304"/>

American Dad (2005- ):Roger takes the place of the lion that spoofs the MGM logo for TBS. This is shown before new American Dad episodes air on TV.

The Boondocks (2005-2014, 2020):The beginning of the episode "Stinkmeaner Strikes Back" is a parody of martial arts films, so appropriately enough, there is a parody of the 1958 Shaw Brothers logo with "BOON" and "DOCKS" replacing "SHAW" and "SCOPE" respectively, and the letters "BD" inside the shield. The music used is even a reorchestration of the logo's fanfare.

<img align="bottom" alt="Boondocks Shaw Brothers Parody" height="278" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/94b6c607a56e4a7e39c529bf74519343/GW364H278" title="Boondocks Shaw Brothers Parody" width="364"/>

We then cut to Joss in the office re-enacting the scene with dolls, before an executive remarks "Come on, Joss; that's why got you kicked offWonder Woman."

In the episode "1987", during the skit "Ted Turner Saves Earth", the Turner logo is prominently seen in the background of Ted Turner's business meeting.

In "Robot Chicken Star Wars Episode III", one skit shows IG-88 bringing his cousin THX-1138 (a reference to the movie of the same name that gave THX its name) to a bar. The Deep Note plays with his introduction and cause some loud offscreen destruction, much to the ire of the patrons.

Shin Chan (Funimationdub; 2006-2011):The 1993Tohologo appears in the projection screen in the episode "The After-Breakfast Enema".
<img align="bottom" alt="Toho Shin Chan" height="258" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/1a1285e5f2fa96b8f1dfe0ebcdcb1d71/GW354H258" title="Toho Shin Chan" width="354"/>

Chowder (2007-2010):In one scene in the episode "Gazpacho Stands Up" Gazpacho wipes off a scribble that Chowder did on the screen. The 2004 Cartoon Network logo appears in the bottom right. Chowder points to the logo and says "How about that one?" Gazpacho then taps on the logo and replies "Yeah, that one doesn't come off. I tried," in reference to the CN screen bug.

<img align="bottom" alt='Chowder" Cartoon Network logo Parody/Reference (2007)' height="210" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/9ab3ad57a330e4e753185bdc8af58884/GW375H210" title='Chowder" Cartoon Network logo Parody/Reference (2007)' width="375"/>

T.U.F.F. Puppy (2010-2015):The "Shrederator" used by Quacky and Sharing Moose to shred the evidence in the episode "Lucky Duck", is a reference to Fred Seibert's companyFrederator Studios, one of the production companies that works on another Butch Hartman show,The Fairly OddParents.

<img align="bottom" alt="Shrederator" height="245" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/228501ec9cab79e0fe2514a170c9836d/GW353H245" title="Shrederator" width="353"/>

The Amazing World of Gumball (2011-): In the episode "The Shippening", Sarah comes across a magical notebook that makes her drawings come to life. The front of it has the 2010 Cartoon Network logo without the name at the bottom.

Steven Universe (2013-2019):At the end of the episode "Lion 2: The Movie", Lion is roaring in this spoof of the MGM Logo.

<img align="bottom" alt='MGM Spoof from "Steven Universe" (2014)' height="252" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/d6cce6b6f4ab8860a1b76ab403ff29b9/GW450H252" title='MGM Spoof from "Steven Universe" (2014)' width="450"/>

Teen Titans Go! (2013- ): At the end of the episode “Nostalgia is Not a Substitute for an Actual Story” (an episode which parodies the 1980’s), a parody of the Ubu Productions logo is seen, but with a frog wearing a top hat and the text reading “Fennimore Frog Productions”. A male voiceover (done by Greg Cipes) says “Stay, froggy, stay. Nice frog,” followed by a frog croak.

BoJack Horseman (2014-2020):In the episode "The Telescope" during an extended 80s flashback sequence, an Ubu in the style of the universe's anthropomorphic dogs is seen at a celebrity party. Charlotte identifies him as "that guy who sits". Herb Kazzaz then adds "he really IS a good dog".

UBU Productions is also referenced by BoJack in "Prickly Muffin" when he says the logos lines to himself, whilst imagining the successful end of his day with Sarah Lynn is the end of an episode of the show the two co-starred on.

TheSecretariatmovie that Season 2 largely concerned itself on the production of is from "MMM". Although their print logo is only briefly seen on their water towers a couple of times, it is indeed that of MGM with a BJH-anthropomorphized version of Leo.

The TV showPhilbertwhich Season 5 concerns itself with the production of is filmed at Warbler Brothers studios, the logo of which is a bird (just a plain simple non anthropomorphic cartoon one this time) as the Warner Bros shield.

In both "BoJack the Feminist" and "The Stopped Show" two news bugs parodies are seen in succession: BBC News as "BRB News" and Fox News with the word "Fox" replaced with a fox head.

Like, Share, Die (January - August 2015): Both "Chinese Knockoff" skits(theThe Lego Movieparody "Bricko Movie" from the episode "Lumbersexual Milkshakes and Neckbeards" and theFamily Guyparody "Man Family Man" from the episode "God Blocks Kitty Porn") begin with a parody of the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo. The castle is replaced with a Chinese temple, yellow against the red background to simulate the flag of said country, and the company name reads "Chinese Knockoff" in the white Disney font and "Original Production" in yellow and in the "pictures" font of the original logo. Bizarrely, this spoof unintentionally predicted the actual ownership of the realFamily Guybeing sold to Disney years after the parody on the show.

We Bare Bears (2015-):The episode "The Demon" begins with a blue BG, with the Japanese characters over a line, and "WE BARE BEARS" on the bottom right corner; referencing the Studio Ghibli logo. Surprisingly, there's no drawing of Ice Bear or any of the bears.

Neo Yokio (2017-2018): In the first episode "The Sea Beneath 14th Street", after the Netflix logo, a fictional tourism guide for the titular Neo Yokio plays. The title card uses the actual Thames theme.

Pop Team Epic (anime, January - March 2018):In the episode "Vanver - A Game in Another Dimension", during one skit done in an 8 bit style (to be exact the "0 Percent" skit), the shows logo briefly appears in between game screens with what sounds like the Game Boy chime.


Road to Utopia (1946): In arguably one of the first examples of this sort of joke in a movie ever, one scene has Bob Hope notice a mountain in the Yukon. When Bing Crosby asks what's notable about it, it becomes the Paramount logo.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975):The film's climax takes place at a theater where the stage backdrop is the 1929RKO Radio Pictureslogo.

<img align="bottom" alt="1929 RKO Radio Pictures logo (The Rocky Horror Picture Show parody, Part 1)" height="210" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/da3ba0ee1b54106faed87e0745fc4714/GW345H210" title="1929 RKO Radio Pictures logo (The Rocky Horror Picture Show parody, Part 1)" width="345"/><img align="bottom" alt="1929 RKO Radio Pictures logo (The Rocky Horror Picture Show parody, Part 2)" height="208" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/c2c6c4196a4054cd4547caa3e17cd8f9/GW349H208" title="1929 RKO Radio Pictures logo (The Rocky Horror Picture Show parody, Part 2)" width="349"/>

The Shaggy D.A. (1976):The animated opening credits sequence begins with a sheepdog sleeping inside a doghouse whose door resembles the MGM logo, and the dog yawns in a manner similar to Leo the Lion. The words in the ribbon are "Canis Corpore Transmuto" (the magic words that transformed Wilby into "The Shaggy Dog").

Hardware Wars (1978, 1997 special edition): This cult short film, a direct parody of theStar Wars: A New Hopetrailer begins with a parody of the then current 1953 logo saying "20th Century Foss" (referring to the shorts' actual director Ernie Fosselius). The fanfare is a drumroll and one long "ta-da" like note (also for some reason "Foss" repeatedly glows white).

<img align="bottom" alt="20th Century Foss" height="280" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/2dede07ec42b41c259189cf4ca26028e/GW377H280" title="20th Century Foss" width="377"/>

The unofficial 1997 "Special edition", made to attack the then relevant special editions of the original trilogy, contains two logo jokes: 20th Century Foss is updated in CGI to a parody of the 1994 20th Century Fox logo

<img align="bottom" alt="20th Century Foss 1997" height="250" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/d58d7bbedc1a4985bb4989ac5b469d34/GW330H250" title="20th Century Foss 1997" width="330"/>

and before this is a THX Broadway parody reading "ZZZ: The audience is tired of logos. Start the movie already!". It is silent, not even a deep note parody.

<img align="bottom" alt="ZZZ" height="255" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/d4de20c187ee1fb4f03b5545333a0550/GW350H255" title="ZZZ" width="350"/>

Attila Flagello di Dio (1982):Attila the Hun and two other men walk down a path and encounter the Columbia Torch Lady.

UHF (1989):On the 2002MGM DVDrelease of this movie, in the commentary, "Weird Al" Yankovic comments over the 2001 MGM logo saying "Hey, I don't remember this lion from the movie", and sings lyrics to theOrion Picturesjingle: "Orion! Orion is bankrupt now!"

Repossessed (1990):Following the Seven Arts logo is a parody of THX "Broadway". It starts with a grey rectangle and the phrase in Arial bold reads "THE AUDIENCE IS HEARING". The company name is BFD which is sandwiched by two lines above and below. The byline above and below respectively reads "LOGANWORKS LTD." and "SOUND PROCESS". A short version of the official 1983 Deep Note is present, with gassy sounds and unintelligible noises.

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny (2006): Before the New Line Cinema logo, a short animation made by John Kricfalusi (ofRen and Stimpyfame) plays spoofing THX. The animation shows chibi versions of Tenacious D members Jack Black and Kyle Gass (which had been previously used in John K's "F*** Her Gently" video) preparing a "Tenacious sound check": eating a large burrito and forming the Deep Note entirely out of flatulence. The finished product reads "THC: The Audience is Now Baking"

<img align="bottom" alt="THC (THX parody)" height="203" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/5796442f33aba6b76d84024e14f194c8/GW395H203" title="THC (THX parody)" width="395"/>

Tropic Thunder (2008):Before the DreamWorks and Red Hour logos, there are three fake trailers, showing a spoof of the MPAA bumper (reading "This trailer is approved for audiences"), Universal Pictures (a remake of the 1997 logo), New Line Cinema, and Fox Searchlight Pictures (both bylineless).

<img align="bottom" alt="Universal Tropic Thunder parody" height="165" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/9522b7649d2f86620556b9f017b81de4/GW354H165" title="Universal Tropic Thunder parody" width="354"/><img align="bottom" alt="New Line Cinema Tropic Thunder parody" height="159" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/5bc0ca626cbd266e82011e7f71b1ec62/GW350H159" title="New Line Cinema Tropic Thunder parody" width="350"/><img align="bottom" alt="Fox Searchlight Pictures Tropic Thunder parody" height="164" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/ba3d9c4ad6bbc3b5f442a564d97eb304/GW397H164" title="Fox Searchlight Pictures Tropic Thunder parody" width="397"/>

The Invention of Lying (2009):The logo for the fictional studio Lecture Films features a blue outline of a director in his chair, surrounded by a semi-circle of stars a la Paramount. Below it is the words "Lecture Films" in a font similar to Paramount script.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012):The film, which is set in the late 1980s, has a scene in which some people is doing a parody of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", with 1929 RKO Radio Pictures logo included.

<img align="bottom" alt="The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)" height="213" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/a685e7375c4323205a45d791122ac374/GW376H213" title="The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)" width="376"/>

An Adventure in Space and Time (2013): To set the mood, as the film is about the making of the originalDoctor Who,it begins with the 1963 BBC logo.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016): The same Fox piano variant from the original movie is used, albeit near the beginning rather than over the literal opening logo.

The Disaster Artist (2017): Near the end, whenThe Roomis being unveiled to an audience for the first time, both of the actual Wiseau Films logos play in order. Tommy Wiseau as played by James Franco flatly comments to Greg Sestero as played by Dave Franco "I have two different logos". (This is actually an anachronism, the original print ofThe Roomonly has the first logo with the second not even existing yet. Most likely this was done deliberately for humor, as demanding two logos does seem like the type of bizarre unconventional request Wiseau would have demanded for some reason).



Looney Tunes (1930-1969):"Porky's Snooze Reel" (1941) has a parody of Pathe News where it is called "Passe News", in which we see a rooster silhouette by the farm watching the sun set. The rooster then flaps its wings, ready to shout, but it puts down its wings and says in a human voice, "C o c k-a-doodle-doo."

"Meet John Doughboy" (1941) has a parody of the RKO "Radio Tower" logo. The text above the tower reads "PORKY PIG PRESENTS", and the Morse code is replaced by razzing noises which slowly go down in pitch as the tower droops.

Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro (1979):In one scene, there is a red van entering the Cagliostro Castle with an "NBK-TV" logo, which is a parody of the "NHK" logo. The same logo can be seen on a TV screen in the royal wedding scene when the broadcast of the royal wedding has been cut out, but it was read as "NKB-TV" instead of "NBK-TV".

Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don't Come Back!!) (1980):There is a cameo appearance by the 1975 Paramount logo during the film on an airplane in-flight movie, consisting of the Peanuts Gang sitting on their seats on the plane, and on a screen, we see a movie countdown leader, followed by a shot of the finishedParamount Picturesmountain logo (with the Gulf+Western byline inblueinstead of the usual white). This appeared before a film-within-a-film entitledLaughing Bunnies, which Snoopy and Woodstock were laughing out loud at during the film.

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018): The movie opens with a parody of the 2002Marvel Studioslogo, with pages from George Perez's originalTeen Titanscomics flipping rapidly.

a-ha "The Sun Always Shines On TV" music video (1985):In one scene of this music video by the Norwegian group features theWarner Bros.shield and the text "A WARNER BROS.-FIRST NATIONAL PICTURE" next to it, both underneath a "The End" credit. The group were originally signed toWarner Bros. Records(which has been independent from Warner Bros. since 2004), hence the WB-FN reference in the music video.

Hard 'n Phirm - Pi (Music Video, 2005):The majority of the music video takes place during an episode of a ZOOM parody called ZAP. As such, the music video starts and ends with a spoof of the 1977 WGBH Boston logo, but the text reads "WHNP" instead (referencing the band's name in the process).

Jus†ice "DVNO" music video (2007):The music video for the titular song by the French house group Justice contains many references to logos such asCannon,CBS/Fox Video, andStephen J. Cannell Productions. Can you spot them all?

Neil Cicirega'sMouth Sounds(2014): The seventh track in the album, "Alanis", contains (after a mashup of Alanis Morissette's "You Oughtta Know" and Jesse Frederick's "Everywhere You Look") a mish-mash of logo jingles 49 seconds into the track. Can you recognize which logo each jingle comes from?

Color TV (???):This band played the track ofHollywood Home Video (Denmark)in their Song "Paroxeteens" and played the track ofPBS' 2nd logo in their song "Night After Night".
Elvis Costello & The Attractions - Radio, Radio: In the very beginning, the 1936
RKO Radio Pictures logo is shown.



Hamlet "Happiness is a Cigar Called Hamlet" campaign (1960s - 1999): One 1982 advertisement in this series concerns a Channel 4 logo parody (using a generic news fanfare instead of the real music). The blocks at first form a 5 with the fanfare dying down. It "rewinds" with a VHS effect and forms a severely botched 4. As the recognizable "Air on a G String" starts, the botched shape forms a sad face. A cigar (as another block) appears and flies in its mouth, turning it into a happy face.

Kia-Ora (1970's): A parody of theColumbia Pictureslogo. This British cinema advert features a female vendor in place of the Torch Lady, the torch is replaced with a cup of Kia-Ora, and the Columbia text is replaced with Kia-Ora text. The camera zooms into the drink while an announcer says "Never has such a refreshing experience been offered at this or any other cinema. Kia-Ora. On sale at this moment in time."

Kmart's 20th Anniversary (1981):In Kmart's 20th Anniversary commercials, the "20 Grand Years of Saving" logo is a parody of the20th Century Foxlogo.

KFC's Kentucky Nuggets (1985, Canada):In one of the Canadian KFC Kentucky Nuggets commercials from the 1980s, the logo seen at the end is a parody of the 1953 20th Century Fox logo.

<img align="bottom" alt="KFC Kentucky Nuggets - TCF Logo Parody (1985, Canada)" height="271" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/d65627694ea17a88222b0bcc30581df8/GW358H271" title="KFC Kentucky Nuggets - TCF Logo Parody (1985, Canada)" width="358"/>

McDonald's Double Features (1986-1991): McDonald's "Double Features" commercials were known for promoting double fries and double cheeseburgers. At the beginning of some of its commercials, they parody film companies. For example, in the USA in 1986, they parody the originalRKO Radio Pictureslogo.

<img align="bottom" alt="McDonald's RKO parody" height="214" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/2f37f9ffdfc5cc2fce6c6cb15e3645d3/GW282H214" title="McDonald's RKO parody" width="282"/><iframe frameborder="0" height="210" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/unknown/daefc11512c920391febf26a7a5c80b7b79fc581" width="372"></iframe>

In the UK from 1989 to 1991, the opening is a parody of the20th Century Foxlogo.

<img align="bottom" alt="McDonald's 20th Century Fox logo." height="273" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/739c95e652223563aab227b61aa6a6f6/GW356H273" title="McDonald's 20th Century Fox logo." width="356"/>

Pizza Hut (UK ad, 1994): Three separate BBC 2 logos are referenced. It begins with a replica of the "paint" ident (right down to the real music, its likely they got the whole logo legitimately). A man shows up in the logo and announces "Two pizzas for the price of one when you...uh...(takes out brush and paints the "screen" in the same turquoise) hit the hut." Later on, during a live-action scene at a Pizza Hut, the metallic 2 falls onto a family's table in the same fashion as the "blade" ident. (The father, unfazed, only remarks that it is "gonna let someone's eye out"). Finally, the "powder" ident is parodied using Pizza Hut's own logo, and appropriately, flour instead of the powder.

Dreher Brewery (2000s): Several ads for this Hungarian beer company featured spoofs of famous movie logos:

Tostitos (2016):A recent series of commercials for Tostitos, parodying telenovelas, begins with a spoof of the Televisa logo.

<img align="bottom" alt="tostitos spoof" height="221" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/1912e578264ea006b913460fbbe723f0/GW392H221" title="tostitos spoof" width="392"/>
Oasis/Deadpool 2 Cross-Promotion Commercial (2018): This commercial for this French soft drink cross-promotingDeadpool 2opens with a Fox parody, the tower reading "Oasis Box Offruice". The actual theme plays (albeit shortened, resembling the television logo) plays, which Deadpulp (an anthropomorphic strawberry version of Deadpool) sings along to. During the second half of the fanfare, he also forms a duck shadow puppet and quacks along to the first four notes, although this is cut short by a zoom out (the rest of the logo still plays on Deadpulp's projector screen though)

<img align="bottom" alt="Oasis Box Office (2018)" height="222" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/4e97a1ad2e66101772be2e251f8267ac/GW397H222" title="Oasis Box Office (2018)" width="397"/>

Umaibou Commercial (2014): The commercial for Umaibou (a brand of Japanese snack) opens on Mt. Fuji (Sochiku) near some rocks and waves (Toei) with what appears to be the background for the Toho logo. The text "やおきん" zooms in, with a yellow circle in the middle. Umaimon then pops out of the circle and roars (MGM). As the waves crash among the rocks, various packages of Umaibou jump out of the waves.

<img align="bottom" alt="Umaibou Commercial (2014)" height="284" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/0ef1c484fb268b34358562ae5d9bd95a/GW509H284" title="Umaibou Commercial (2014)" width="509"/>


Homestar Runner (1996-):The first two Christmas (or Decemberween) toons begin with a CBS Feature Presentation parody (using the actual jingle!). The parody has just the lone word "Special" spinning around towards the center of the screen before stopping there.

<img align="bottom" alt="Homestar Runner CBS Special Presentation Parody" height="242" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/eb706111fdce1d47b07bef7018e38f16/GW355H242" title="Homestar Runner CBS Special Presentation Parody" width="355"/>

The toon "The Luau" also uses the CBS Special Presentation jingle for a transition scene. (Bizarrely, this is kept on the DVD release, but not the two Decemberween examples.)

The Strong Bad Email "best thing" opens up the fictional lost cartoonLimozeen: But They're in Spacewith "Metalmation", a Filmation parody. It consists of just rainbow like letters appearing against a gray gradient. It does not appear to be parodying any one logo of theirs (possibly the 5th) but just their font and habit for having made the kind of bad shows spoofed.

<img align="bottom" alt="Metalmation (Homestar Runner/Sbemail Filmation parody)" height="245" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/641c23c1ba6d1da6aefb061b346c8661/GW343H245" title="Metalmation (Homestar Runner/Sbemail Filmation parody)" width="343"/>

The Strong Bad Email "theme song", in the "life-affirming pop-ballad type theme song", contains what could be a brief Stephen J. Canal allusion when SB, seated at the Lappy 486, flings some papers.

In the 2015 Halloween video "The House That Gave Sucky Tricks", suiting his rectangular shape, Strong Mad's Halloween costume is the TiVo TV set (albeit only reading "TV" with the two removed letters replaced by dots to complete the smiley face)

<img align="bottom" alt="Tivo parody from Homestar" height="322" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/a6bc911e3660f7eb2c88cf056ec5b33e/GW235H322" title="Tivo parody from Homestar" width="235"/>

CollegeHumor (2000-): The video "PixarIntro Parody" is exactly what the title says, depicting the Pixar lamp jumping on the "I", getting thrown in jail as a result, and meeting its untimely demise in the electric chair.

The Angry Video Game Nerd (2004-): The beginning of "The Wizard of Oz" has a parody of the MGM logo. Mike Matei, dressed up as the Cowardly Lion, growls in the MGM circle, but above him is "Cinemassacre" and below him, replacing the mask, is the Pink FloydDark Side of the Moonprism, a reference of the "Dark Side of the Rainbow" urban legend (which states that said album syncs with said movie). In the copyright notice, you can notice roman numerals that counts the lion's roars beside the "at" symbol, another reference to said legend (since the sync only occurs when the album starts playing after the second roar).

<img align="bottom" alt="MGM parody from Angry Video Game Nerd" height="280" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/5da5c26832561fd181e7c6fdf1931678/GW348H280" title="MGM parody from Angry Video Game Nerd" width="348"/>

The opening and endings of "Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout" and "Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle" are a parody of the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies IDs:
Birthday Blowout begins with the parody with a black background and red rings with the Nerd's head replacing the WB shield, looking angry, with "WARNER BROS. PICTURES INC." replaced by "GAMETRAILERS.COM & SCREWATTACK.COM" with "Presents" in a different font. The copyright now reads "COPYRIGHT 2007 BY THE CINEMASSACRE CORP. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED" the number code is replaced by "NINTENDO". "LOONEY TUNES" now reads "THE ANGRY VIDEO GAME NERD" "A WARNER BROS. CARTOON Color by TECHNICOLOR" also now reads "A JAMES D. ROLFE GAME REVIEW TITLES BY MIKE MATEI". The video ends with a parody of the "Porky in a Drum" outro. "LOONEY TUNES" reads "THE ANGRY VIDEO GAME NERD", "A WARNER BROS. CARTOON" remains intact but "WARNER BROS" is replaced by "CINEMASSACRE", Porky is replaced with the Nerd who says "Th-th-th-th-th-That's all, f*cks!" as he makes a crude gesture.

<img align="bottom" alt="AVGN Looney Tunes Parody (Bugs Bunny Birthday Blowout)" height="268" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/a3bd86bba1c2474d6e1161f4a55e348e/GW357H268" title="AVGN Looney Tunes Parody (Bugs Bunny Birthday Blowout)" width="357"/>

Crazy Castle begins the same way as Birthday Blowout but the rings are now purple, and the Nerd now has a shocked face. One of the title cards parody the "Blue Ribbon" Merrie Melodies title card but "MERRIE MELODIES" is replaced with "CINEMASSACRE PRESENTS". The ending has the 1st opening card but the Nerd's head is not there, but instead the "That's all f*cks!" script wipes in.

In the episode "Superman 64", while about to review the infamousSuperman 64, The Nerd adds a brief description to theTituslogo shown at the beginning of the game, saying "First, you're greeted by a smiling cartoon fox." His statement turns questionable when he notices the name and says, "Titus? What the f*ck is that?"

Nigahiga (2006-):The channel has done several parody trailers, all of which begin with the logo spoofs: a Warner Bros shield with "<3" inside the shield and the "LESS THAN THREE" on the banner, Paramount is "Paramound", Universal is "Universowhat", and an MGM spoof that has a dog (actually Higa's dog, Marley) replacing the lion with no text on the ribbon.

<img align="bottom" alt="Warner Bros Parody (Less Than 3)" height="182" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/d846f0b7823f8178ccd6221646d3fbe7/GW322H182" title="Warner Bros Parody (Less Than 3)" width="322"/><img align="bottom" alt="Paramount parody (Paramound)" height="182" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/03878bf6a6dce7dc8196f6f0fa86d809/GW322H182" title="Paramount parody (Paramound)" width="322"/><img align="bottom" alt="Universal parody (Universowhat)" height="184" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/7fa6e1b782633b0371b2438c40561a24/GW323H184" title="Universal parody (Universowhat)" width="323"/><img align="bottom" alt="MGM parody (Nigahiga)" height="184" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/dbcdfa74c519524ae3eadf81640eef8f/GW322H184" title="MGM parody (Nigahiga)" width="322"/>

How It Should Have Ended (2007-):In some of their Marvel episodes, images from HISHE episodes flip downward, and then fade to red in their parody of the Marvel logo. The word "MARVEL" is replaced by HISHE".

Nostalgia Critic (2007-): In his review ofExorcist II: The Heretic, when Kokumo (James Earl Jones) "roars" into the camera, the Critic remarks: "Could that intro be any more silly? That could be the new logo for the MGM lion!" We then see Kokumo inside the MGM logo and he "roars" in sync with Leo's roars.

<img align="bottom" alt="Nostalgia Critic MGM Parody" height="282" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/56cb990f0a6a58f627080e6dacde0233/GW372H282" title="Nostalgia Critic MGM Parody" width="372"/>
In his review of the 2003 film version ofThe Cat in the Hat, the Critic is angered by a blatant product placement and suggests a new Dr. Seuss logo. The result is the 1971Cat in the Hat Productionslogo with a clip fromTom and Jerry: The Moviewith Lickboot saying "We've GOT to have...moneyyyy" appearing within the circle, followed by a clip of the live-action Cat from the movie saying "Cha-ching!".
<img align="bottom" alt="Dr. Seuss - "We've Got to Have Money!"" height="206" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/35ceea3d950aa65c46724332a287b11f/GW365H206" title="Dr. Seuss - "We've Got to Have Money!"" width="365"/><img align="bottom" alt='Dr. Seuss - "Cha-ching!"' height="206" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/3221d348eb2b84d35d764bf0db237a24/GW364H206" title='Dr. Seuss - "Cha-ching!"' width="364"/>
In his review ofFantastic Four(2015), the Critic acknowledges how the 20th Century Fox logo at the beginning of the film flashes the letter "F" similar to how it flashes the letter "X" before theX-Menfilms. He then goes on to say, "Honestly, if you want to give us any assurance you'd flash this...." The 2009 logo then appears with yellow text saying "WE GOT DEADPOOL RIGHT!" in front of "FOX" and text below it saying "EVENTUALLY." (obviously referencing the character's highly-criticized appearance inX-Men Origins: Wolverine) appears as the logo is fading out.
<img align="bottom" alt="Nostalgia Critic Fox Logo Parody" height="261" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/5c6db2685f4f9cf7eed449544b2df07a/GW463H261" title="Nostalgia Critic Fox Logo Parody" width="463"/>
The Critic has also used the 1985-2006 Walt Disney Pictures logo in white usually on the corner of the screen multiple times in his reviews ofJungle 2 Jungle, Bridge to Terabithia, I'll Be Home For Christmas, andThe Sorcerer's Apprentice, usually as a joke for scenes that don't seem appropriate for Disney films (YouTube cartoon reviewer PhantomStrider has also adopted this trend). He also has a parody of the logo as the intro to his "Disneycember" series of videos.
In his review ofThe Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, The Critic acknowledges that the film's Universal logo variant says "Univershell" but the URL, (which he shows a closeup of) shows the company's real name.
On the Critic's riff of theSupermancartoon "Destruction Inc.," the Critic says over the 1938 Paramount Cartoons logo, "Paramount will stop making Transformers movies when you stop watching them."
In his review ofThe League of Extraordinary Gentlemen(2003), Critic makes a joke out of the film's special 20th Century Fox logo variation, where the logo fades into a dark, run-down structure: "Whoa, I guess that Disney merger didn't go as well as expected. They can surviveCleopatra, but not the mouse?"
Two logo references occur in his video about the 1997 Mr. Magoo live-action film:
The 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo is seen as it appears on the film proper, with the overly whimsical opening theme of the film playing over it. This annoys Critic, leading him to make a joke about how already thefirst secondof the film was annoying him: "Eh, there's only 5,492 to go!". (On a side note, this is inaccurate: he miscalculated the length of the 87-minute film as 91 minutes.)
Later on, Critic makes a jab at a bizarre hat worn by a character by likening it to an incomplete iris out. This is followed by a bit of an iris out actually being stuck in place to form the hat, theLooney Tunesending version of "Merrily We Roll Along" playing up until it gets stuck.
In the video on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, the Columbia logo variant of the film (the entire logo is sped-up with a flaming sound) is heavily criticized by both Critic and guest MikeJ as being overtly ADD and an abuse of editing techniques. Critic makes a jab that the entire movie might as well have been that overtly sped-up and shows a hypothetical cut of it, consisting entirely of Ghost Rider telling the audience "I was Ghost Rider. Bye!" and end credits.

In his review of Alien 3, Critic jokes that the 20th Century Fox logo is "confused about what it's supposed to be", referring to its logo variation where the theme slows down and becomes more suspenseful. He adds that it might have realized that it was in Alien 3, and a gag is shown of it running off.
Cracked (2008-):In the video "Trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Gay Revenge Fantasy", the fake trailer begins with theA Band Apartlogo.

PeanutButterGamer (2009-):At the end of the episode "Sonic Cartoon," a review ofThe Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, the 1990 variant of the DiC "Kid in Bed" plays as normal, except that, when "DiC" appears, Sonic.exe is shown, and the voiceover is distorted. It then cuts to the bed, with PBG saying "We watch your children sleep at night."
The JonTron Show (2010-):In the episode "Home Improvement", Jon jokes about theAbsolutelogo, saying they "Absolutely copiedSierra'slogo", as a print logo of Sierra replaces the pyramid in Absolute's logo.

In the episode "A Talking Cat?!?", Jon comments on the Phase 4 Films logo, "Oh look, this film was produced by the Fantastic 4. I'm really liking what they've done with it here" as he superimposes the Fantastic 4 logo next to the film company's.

He continues, "I guess this is as good a time as any to show you guysmynew revamped logo." We then go to an MGM parody. The "ARS GRATIA ARTIS" is missing, "Metro Goldwyn Mayer" is replaced by "JonTron Studios, "JON" and "TRON" on either side replacing "TRADEMARK" and the Normal Boots URL is below the ribbons. The lion is replaced by Jon, imitating a cat coughing up a furball.

Funny Horsie (2010 - 2016): This YouTube series which imitates a (very short and extremely weird) lost British children's program ends almost every episode (Episode 20 was the only one that didn't, instead using a parody with a parody logo (and before Episode 7 begins too). Most of them reference real ones, mostly for 80s UK companies. (Starting with Episode 15, though, this was mostly dialed back and most episodes just ended with a random real company's logo).
Full list of logos referenced:

Episode 2: A Thames parody "Bumarse" with someone badly singing the real jingle.

Episode 3: A company just named for Kim Wilde is given a Central parody with a human head in place of the globe and another bad acapella version of the original music.

Episode 5: Bollocks Television, a Border Television parody

Episode 6: "Television Television Television Television Television Vision", a Tyne Tees parody (likely the 1979 logo in particular)

Episode 7: One of only two episodes to have the logo be for the actual creator Chridoff rather than any fictional company, the logo in question being the Cannon CGI Hexagon with Chridoff's name in place of "Cannon".

Episode 8: The logos now no longer being based off a real company, the logo is for "Rape Productions" with a byline claiming "Not to be confused with RapeVision Inc, a religious and charitable organization" an obvious reference to the debacle over WorldVision inc.

Episode 12: "Courtney Love Productions", contains her saying "I made this" in what is probably a Ten Thirteen Productions reference.

Episode 15: The entire episode's end credits are just ripped fromA Clockwork Orange, including the incredit Warner Bros with Kinney byline.

Episode 16: Opens with a parody of a BBC 2 "this weekend" promo complete with logo, whereas the ending logo is the BBC logo along with the credits ofMan Alive.

Episode 17: The whole episodes end credits are ripped from a 90s eraNeighboursepisode including the Grundy Television logo.

Episode 18: The 1994 Border Television logo is used with the credits of an unknown show.

Episode 19: The 80s Saban globe plays along with the credits of the failed pilot for the American version of the animeMaple Town.

Episode 21: Border is parodied again, this time by its actual name, for a fake opening. The ending uses the David Paradine Productions logo along with the credits of the TV movieVoices.

Episode 22: opens with a Channel 4 ident and ends with the H. Barton Wasserman logo fromThe Alphabet.

Caddicarus (2011-): In his video on the infamously cancelled PlayStation title Thrill Kill, series creator and host Jim Caddick tears into theVirgin InteractiveThrobbing Eye logo stating that it alone should have gotten the game banned.

Creationist Cat (2011-): A parody of theMGMlogo. Creationist Cat appears in the circle, opens his mouth, and says "JESUSSSSS!" The mask is replaced with Jesus tied to a cross, the circle has the phrase "SUPERUS DUPOR CATTUS", and the text "Creationist Cat Ministries" in gold appear below. The text shines a bit.
<img align="bottom" alt="Creationist Cat Ministries" height="221" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/415fc80515ce424596bcc8ad17ae60cd/GW392H221" title="Creationist Cat Ministries" width="392"/>

Honest Trailers (2012): The 100th video of this Screen Junkies series, which parodies trailers to films and video games, opens with a shout-out to the then-currentMarvel Studioslogo.
Chadtronic (2013- ):Since 2016, the channel's videos have usually ended with a Nickelodeon-esque logo, with an orange blob morphing into the channel logo and a copyright date with "Chadtronic Studio Productions". In the video "CRINGE THE COMPUTER", after the animation is finished, the screen quickly zooms in, as Chad says "OK, these guys are plagiarizing Nickelodeon. It is OBVIOUS at this point; COME ON!", referencing a line from earlier in the video.

Arlo (2014-)From 2017 onwards, this gaming-commentary-delivered-with-puppetry channel's opening intro has been a parody of the Nintendo Switch start-up. Two simply drawn halves of Arlo's face act as the joycons.

<img align="bottom" alt="Arlo Nintendo Switch parody" height="218" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/acb250d37ace2e838bb68b1aa260fdce/GW428H218" title="Arlo Nintendo Switch parody" width="428"/>

Film Theory (2015-):In this web series discussing the mysteries of movies, their intro ends with a parody of the 20th Century Fox logo.

SiIvaGunner (2016-): This YouTuber (formerly known as GiIvaSunner, the third letter is a capital "I" instead of a lowercase "L") who uploads "high quality rips" (referring to the process of mashing up a video game song with another song or doing some other weird editing with it and uploading it with no indication of its edited nature) of video game music has given the treatment to several video game logo jingles. A list of all the video game BIOs and logos he has ripped and what was changed in them:

Sega CD(US version): The jingle is mashed up to the vocals of "Bodies" by Drowning Pool.

Nintendo Gamecube: The jingle is mashed into "Smooth Criminal" by Michael Jackson in such a way so that it perfectly syncs up to the song's bassline.

Sega: The SEGAAAA, rather than going into the AAAAA, trails into "Loud Nigra" (a recurring audio clip in SiIv's videos of an African male screaming in an inhuman fashion)

Mega CD(Japan): The music is recreated entirely with vocal samples from "Gangnam Style" by PSY.

Sega (2nd): same as before but a different portion of Loud Nigra

Nintendo Gamecube (2nd): The "they're all gonna laugh at you" scene fromCarrie(with Vinny from Vinesauce laughing thrown in) is heard for a long period before jarringly going into the "z button down" version of the actual Gamecube jingle.

Nintendo DS: The music and visuals are edited to resemble YouTuber GradeAUnderA's intro.

Sega (3rd): similar to the first two, but it trails into "AH. Call Mr. Rental!". (from a commercial for Australian electronic rental service Mr. Rental, another recurring tidbit in Siiv's videos)

Nintendo(Luigi's Mansion): No audio from the actual logo is heard, rather the 3-second long video is just an audio clip fromGames Repaintedof someone going "Oh my god, Fred Fuchs".

Nintendo (Kirby's Dream Land 3, the "French version" as the title jokingly says it originates from): The logo's audio is edited to be the theme of French YouTuber Joueur Du Grenier.

Playstation: The logo's music is simply glitched-up with no rhyme or reason (this rip wasn't meant to be humorous so much as create speculation about the ongoing storyline in the rips).

GameCube (OST Version): the audio is entirely replaced by the "music" of bootleg gameCrazy Bus.

Nintendo Switch: When the clicking noise occurs,it creates an explosion as a male voice is heard screaming (this is a parody of infamous shock videoThe Love Plug).

Playstation 3: the actual logo is not utilized, the 3 minute video is a mashup of the songs "Abe's Dead" by The Lego Pornstars and "We Fly High" by Jim Jones (this rip was part of a storyline where Chad Warden, a former YouTube troll who presented himself as a die-hard PS3 supporter, "took over" the channel; almost every rip uploaded during this period was a mashup with "Abe's Dead". "We Fly High" was in reference to it being the actual Chad Warden's intro/outro music.)

Additionally, a couple of non-BIOS rips have references to non-video game logos:

One of his rips of "Ultimate Koopa" fromSuper Mario 64(the "OST Version" as the title jokingly calls it) is the beginning of the theme transiting into the Tex #1 version of the THX logo via turning into the deep note.

The rip "Options -Mr. Rental: The Video Game"(a game that does not exist, with the "rip" actually being an original animation featuring Rental) concludes with a Gracie Films parody wherein the screen displays "Grand Films" and the jingle is synced to a bit of the theme toThe Flintstonesrendered in 8-bit (Both these allude to the bootleg game7 GRAND DAD, with said 8-bit Flintstones being used in said game and being the single most prominent running joke on the channel). Also the chattering has been replaced with different chattering.

(This whole clip was made by YouTuber Lu9 under his channel "CIosingLogosHD", again with the L being an uppercase I. who gives the same treatment to logos)

The rip, "Opening - Star Fox 64" The beginning transits to the 20th Century Fox fanfare.

Nick Knacks (2017 - )This edutainment YouTube series by poparena about Nickelodeon's history, in its episode aboutBy the Way(actually a review of Nick's late 70s aesthetic, as said show is completely lost), has segments where he tears into both variations of the first Nick ID on the page (The Young People's Satellite Network):

1st variation (no music): "Hey, you know what screams wholesome entertainment? A child in a dark room, no music playing, only the persistent hum of antique machinery, the child approaching a flickering white light that reveals a picture of an old-timey man looking into our logo. That's what kids want. That's what parents want. That's what people paying for cable want....I'm sorry but have you EVER seen such a dreary ad campaign?"

2nd variation (music): (in direct retort to the lines of the narrator): "We took everything that was bad about children's television...likecolorandenergy, and got rid of it, and took everything that was good, like old-timey music and the darkness of DEATH, and made it better."
He also looks at the Nickelodeon Mime ID, his one comment being that he "had nothing on Coco" (a character from Nick's first ever showPinwheel)

The Bartman Reanimate Collab (2019):This version of the Simpsons Do The Bartman music video, animated by various online animators, features a parody of theGracie Filmslogo, with a crudely drawn Bart and a man in a helmet (the Newgrounds mascot) in the theater. The Newgrounds mascot shushes, and the text NEWGROUNDS is projected onto the screen, and the familiar theme plays. After the music ends, another man with an afro-looking haircut peeks his head into view, later standing up, revealing he is holding a gun. He shoots himself in a cartoony fashion, falling over. The Newgrounds mascot stands up with his hands out in shock.

Another parody from the collab features the 199520th Century Fox Televisionlogo. The logo is crudely drawn, with the colors similar to the 2008 version, and the structure reads 20th Century Whatever. The 1989 fanfare is heard. Bart is also seen on the left, floating and tied to three balloons.

<img align="bottom" alt="TCFTV Bartman Collab Logo Parody" height="241" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/6cfcbbe2251a341259e9829f5ed94a8c/GW426H241" title="TCFTV Bartman Collab Logo Parody" width="426"/>


Studios Idéfix(1974-1978):The logo has a parody of MGM. The background is red, the circle is rounded with a crown of laurel. In addition, Idéfix replaces Leo, and "Ars Gratia Artis" is replaced by "Delirant isti romani" ("That romans are crazy", an expression said by Obélix, in Latin).

<img align="bottom" alt="Studios Idéfix (1976)" height="236" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/9ae4af664ffe35e1b00f2cbfd58b6a71/GW313H236" title="Studios Idéfix (1976)" width="313"/>

BBC Christmas Tape (1979): A spoof of a BBC 1 logo appears after a montage of other images and stuff, resembling the 1975 Christmas logo, but the the "Christmas" text is in a different font and in red and the globe is the usual "Mirror Globe" but is in metallic blue with the continents being in some kind of bumpy gold texture. A voice, which is continuing from the previous images, says "...and this is, uh, what is this?" After he says that, the globe slowly turns to a film reel and the BBC 1 logo on the bottom changes to the cursive text "Good King Memorex". A different voice says "This is Good King Memorex, a shawl(?) with a royal title, featuring no royalty whatsoever! ...after what happened last year." The same logo appears at the end with a little ditty played on a music box. It looks like the same logo at the beginning, but the film reel is in place of the globe. The BBC1 logo disappears for the text in the same cursive font "Produced by Grant Watkins"

Gravette High School 1981 Yearbook (Gravette, AR):The MGM lion logo appears on the cover as part of a movie theme for the yearbook. Interestingly, the street name where the school is located is 325 Lion Dr S., which explains the school's mascot, the lion.

A to Zap! (1995):At the beginning of this game, the Sunburst logo, which parodies the 20th Century Fox logo is seen, and several searchlights turn on with a 7-note fanfare playing. After the fanfare finishes, the circle in the Sunburst logo opens to reveal a pink rabbit. The rabbit roars, parodying the MGM logo.

Curse of Monkey Island (a.k.a.Monkey Island 3) (1997): This video game has a parody of the THX logo where "CMI" (Curse ofMonkeyIsland) is inside a blue rectangle, "The Monkeys are listening..." is below it. The music consists of a Deep Note soundalike and the sounds of monkeys.

<img align="bottom" alt="CMI, The Monkeys are listening (THX spoof)" height="254" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/989e924870fca4455414dc48589bc354/GW338H254" title="CMI, The Monkeys are listening (THX spoof)" width="338"/>

The S from Hell (2010):Perhaps this page taken to its logical extreme, this is a whole documentary (and semi horror film at parts) about said Screen Gems logo.
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (2017):A CG shows Angie Yonaga, Himiko Yumeno, Tenko Chabashira, K1-B0, and Tsumugi Shirogane in front of a background similar to that of the Toho logo, complete with the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles logo in white and the yellow text "Ultimate Academy Student Council" below (though they are shifted away from their usual positions due to the characters being in front of the logo.)
