Logo description and capture by EnormousRat

Background: Toys for Bob is a game developer founded in 1989, though it seems not to use any logo until 2003. The company was acquired by Activision in 2005 and is now a wholly-owned subsidiary since then.

1st Logo

: "The Kid Rocket"

Logo: On a purple rotating space background, we see a silver rocket flying around the "Toys For Bob" logo spinning around until it stops.

FX/SFX: The logo and background rotating.

Music/Sounds: A dizzy soundtrack with a beeping synth section and what sounds like Scooby-Doo's "Aroo?" sound.

Music/Sounds Trivia: The music actually comes from Star Control 2, a game made by Toys for Bob in 1992. The theme belongs to the alien race known as the Orz. The full version can be heard <a href="" target="_self">here</a>.

Availability: Can be seen on Madagascar, Disney's Extreme Skating Adventure, Guitar Hero: Van Halen and Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

: "Skylanders for Bob"

Logo: On a white background, we see the "Portal of Power" accessory, then a kid's hand put down a Trigger Happy Skylanders figure on the portal and it becomes alive, points one of his guns at the screen and teleports out of the area, then we see two hands put letters together to form the words "Toys for" on the top and 2 uppercase B's on the bottom (the Portal of Power counting as the giant "O" in the logo), then the one hand fixes the "T" on Toys back into place and then the logo sinks into the portal to a black screen.

FX/SFX: Even though the kid's hand is live action, it is stop motion for when it places Trigger Happy and forms the company name. The Skylander is CGI.

Music/Sounds: A kids' laugh in the beginning, Trigger Happy's laugh, the shuffling sound for when the letters are put into place, a zap for when the logo sinks into a black screen.

Availability: Appears on Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure and it's sequels, Skylanders Giants,Skylanders: Trap Team and Skylanders Imaginators. This did not appear on Skylanders: Swap Force, or Skylanders: SuperChargers, because those games were developed by Vicarious Visions.

Editor's Note: None.
