Williams Street West isa small subsidiary of Williams Street, a production sub-arm of Cartoon Network. It originally launched in 2003 so that Matt Harrigan could work for Viacom International and Williams Street without having to return to Atlanta constantly, closing its doors after he stopped working for Viacom. The studio shut down in 2004, but was revived in 2017.

1st Logo
(January 11-April 12, 2004)

: "The Backwards Space Ghost Logo", "The Backwards CN Building", "The Backwards CN Factory", "The Backwards Adult Swim Logo"

Logo: Same as the first Williams Street logo, except that it says "WILLIAMS STREET WEST" in a slightly different font is under the building. The wavering filter and building are in reverse.

FX/SFX: Same as the Williams Street logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the Williams Street logo.

Availability: It
can be seen on the final season of Space Ghost Coast 2 Coast.

Editor's Note: Same as the Williams Street logo.

2nd Logo
(March 18, 2017-)

: "The Williams Street Logo With a Different Building", "The CN Skyscraper"

Logo: On a white background, we see a tall building, which the camera zooms out from. As this happens, the text "WILLIAMS STREET WEST" also zooms out. Copyright info is below throughout the entire logo.

Trivia: The building is actually based off the Cartoon Network Skyscraper, which was located next to Adult Swim's old studio. It's also where Samurai Jack and a number of CN shows were produced.

FX/SFX: The zooming out. This actually shows more effort than the regular Williams Street logo.

Music/Sounds: A strike of the hammer from the WS logo (which comes from the Mark VII Limited logo, respectively) followed by a deep synth note.

Availability: First seen on a broadcast on Williams Stream, one of Adult Swim’s online livestreams.

Editor's Note: The music is cool (it’s a nice change of pace from the usual Williams Street soundtrack) and it's a nice, smooth logo overall.
