Background: Shout! Factory is an American home video and music company founded in 2003.

1st Logo
Nicknames: "Red and Black Bars", "Then-and-Now Television"

: We see a jittery TV screen with bluish static and a film countdown leaderboard on it. The Shout! Factory logo consists of five unevenly-arranged rectangles alternating between red and black colors in a pattern with an exclamation point at the end, with "SHOUT" displayed on each rectangle letter-by-letter with the exclamation point at the end and "FACTORY" is shown below it in between two horizontal lines, comes into focus, flashing a bit. As the leaderboard finishes the static remains, and then fades away after a couple of seconds. The logo tilts a bit before fading out.

Variant: Some feature film releases features the logo in widescreen (actually non-anamorphic widescreen, as it's rather cheaply horizontally stretched.)

FX/SFX: The static, leaderboards, and logo focusing.

Music/Sounds: A film projector running combined with static, electric buzzing, and a VID-like whirring sound.

Music/Sounds Variant: There is also a higher-pitched variant of the logo music.

Availability: Common. Seen on DVDs released from the company, mostly classic TV shows and films. Also appears on Blu-rays, but it's in DVD quality.

Editor's Note: None

2nd Logo
(2014- )
Shout! Factory (2014)
Nicknames: "Red and Black Bars II", "The Other Bars of Boredom"

: On a white background, 2 bars with the word "FACTORY" slides in. As it settles, 3 red bars and 2 black bars, all unevenly arranged, rise up from the bar and "SHOUT" appears on the bars one by one. A exclamation point flies in and sticks to the last bar. All this happens at a very fast pace.

FX/SFX: The bar sliding in, the bars rising up, and the exclamation point sticking on the bar.

Music/Sounds: A distant explosion sound followed by a series of short swooshes.

Availability: Current. Seen on newer Shout! Factory releases, such as The Battery and My Little Pony: Equestria Girl
s – Rainbow Rocks. It also appeared on the 2017 revival of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
