HAL Animation

(1992)

Logo: On a blue background, we see the HAL logo with "ANIMATION" under it with no animation whatsoever.

Cheesy Factor: But when HAL moved to Japan and was renamed HALKEN then HAL Laboratory Inc. They used this logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Scarce. Only seen on Kirby's Dream Land: The Movie.

Scare Factor: None.

HALKEN Animation

(1993-1998)

Logo: On a paper background, we see a hand holding a pencil drawing the HALKEN logo, the it draws "ANIMATION" under the logo. Then the background fades to black and the HALKEN logo gains it's rightful colors.

FX/SFX: The pencil drawing the logo and the transformation.

Cheesy Factor: But when they distribute or produce an animation film, they have this?!

Music/Sounds: A pencil writing sound is heard when the pencil draws the logo, then a ta-da-like sound is heard when the background and logo changes.

Availability: Rare. This first appeared on Kirby's Adventure: The Movie. This last appeared on Earthbound: The Movie.

(2017-)

Logo: On a sky background, we see a paintbrush painting the HAL Laboratory logo with "ANIMATION" under it. The HAL Laboratory logo appears under the logo after 4 seconds.

FX/SFX: The paintbrush painting the logo and the byline fading in. Majestic CGI!

Cheesy Factor: But if they distribute or produce a live-action film with this logo, they never make a variant with "MOVIES" in place of "ANIMATION"!?

Music/Sounds: An abridged version of the Vipid version of the Spyglass Entertainment logo used in the template.

Availability: Brand New. This first appeared on the trailer for Kirby And The Rainbow Curse. The animated version debuted on the film itself and will be seen on future films from the company. Also appears as the intro for their website.
