2nd Logo

Nickname: "Static Wheel"

Logo: A
sky blue square flashes and zooms in quickly, simulating a TV being turned on. A series of static particles appear and then turn blue and white as they roll around and combine together. They then form a newer Mill Creek Entertainment logo, with a redesigned wheel, looking more like a gear, and the company name below in a different font. The logo slowly zooms in before it disappears in a TV switch-off effect.

FX/SFX: The particles moving around and forming the logo.

Music/Sounds: A switch-on sound, an ascending droning noise, then a synth note and a switch-off sound.

Availability: Common. Seen on Mill Creek releases from 2011 to 2017 such as re-releases of That '70s Show and 3rd Rock from the Sun. Strangely, on some DVDs, the packaging may have this logo, but the previous logo appears on the DVD.

Editor's Note: None

3rd Logo

Logo: TBA


Music/Sounds: A 5-note synth-violin tune with the first 3 notes sustained and the 4th and 5th note's sustainment slightly extended.
