Adam's Dream Logos 2.0 - Adam's Closing Logos - Dream Logos Wiki

Background: In accordance with the Klasky-Csupo Act of 1999 (signed into law by President Bill Clinton on December 21, 1999), all television programs, religious television programs, shows, theatrical movies, TV movies, religious movies (including religious TV movies), documentaries, feature films, specials and video games must go through Earth's Klasky-Csupo. Since then, Klasky-Csupo's SSF logo has been plastered onto the opening or end credits on every show (international or local (even in Mobius)) aired throughout every network, as well as on all movies and video games.

(2000-)

Logo: We see the words "DISTRIBUTED BY" on a purple static background. Suddenly, the words zoom out and the 1998-2008 Klasky-Csupo logo does its usual sequence.

Variants:

  • On select Disney Animation shows, as well as game shows, Rocket Power, Hardcastle and McCormick, Silk Stalkings,  and post-2003 episodes of Sesame Street, the K-C logo and "DISTRIBUTED BY" text (above the K-C logo) are superimposed into the credits.
  • On all Paramount-produced shows, as well as on Mary Tyler Moore, The Bob Newhart Show, Rhoda, WKRP in Cincinnati and Newhart, "DISTRIBUTED BY" appears above the K-C logo instead.
  • On CN-produced shows as well as KaBlam!, "DISTRIBUTED BY" instead reads "IN ASSOCIATION WITH".
  • There is a very rare variant only seen on select episodes of Diagnosis Murder and on season 2 episodes of The Wild Thornberrys (which is intact on the DVD from Earth's Shout! Factory). The logo is set on a black background and the "DISTRIBUTED BY" text is indigo.
  • The "DISTRIBUTED BY" text can sometimes read "PRODUCED IN ASSOCIATION WITH", "PRODUCED BY (varying company name) IN ASSOCIATION WITH" or "PRODUCED IN ASSOCIATION WITH AND DISTRIBUTED BY".
  • On newer prints of The Nanny and the final two seasons of The Smurfs, as well as on Jetsons: The Movie, Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation and Wakko's Wish, the logo is embossed and animated via CGI.
  • The "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text appears instead of the usual "DISTRIBUTED BY" text on Rocket Power episode "Race Across New Zealand". (This version can still be seen intact on the Rocket Power episode on The '90s Are All That on TeenNick and Amazon Video on Demand.) Whether or not this is a programming error is unknown as of August 2012.
  • Very old shows and movies have the logo in black and white.
  • On post-2000 prints of The Jeffersons, Good Times, the 1966 Batman TV series, both Ghostbusters films and Yo Yogi!, the logo is set on a blue background.
  • South Mobius television airings of Universal and Paramount movies have the text "home cartoons & productions" below the K-C logo.
  • Sometimes, a copyright stamp appears below the Klasky-Csupo logo, reading "COPYRIGHT (year) ARLENE KLASKY and GABOR CSUPO".
  • An 8-bit version of the logo appears on all games on 8-bit consoles.
  • Sometimes the logo is set on a wallpaper background. One example of this is Arthur.
  • On American Idol and The X Factor, spotlights appear throughout the logo.
  • Rugrats, the show that this logo oringinated on has the logo at the start, but after it, Tommy Pickles salutes the logo with Tommy calling it the "Splat symbol".


FX/SFX: Same as the 1998-2008 Klasky-Csupo logo.

Music/Sounds: Usually a sound of a Boeing airplane taking off when "DISTRIBUTED BY" zooming out, and the rock chord from the last note of the ending theme of Rocket Power, followed by the 1998-2008 Klasky-Csupo logo theme.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • When the logo is superimposed in the credits, the end title theme plays over the logo.
  • Sometimes, a "ping" sound is heard when the Distributed by text has zoomed out.
  • Another variant has a sound of a United airplane taking off. The logo theme is still present in this variant. It appears only on some documentaries, TV movies, several post-1999 Viacom shows, Jetsons: The Movie, Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation and Wakko's Wish.
  • Yet another variant has a sound of a Delta airplane taking off that appears on reruns of All in the Family and the Animaniacs episode "Birds on a Wire/Scoring Session/The Animaniacs Suite".

Availability: Ultra common, it appears no matter which TV show, movie or documentary you watch anywhere in the world on any channel and no matter which video game you play, the logo always appears in one way or another.

Scare Factor:It Despends on which variant For the original version:None to HEART ATTACK! Low for the other variants None for the 8-bit Variant the logo is still creepy but it's harmless This also Goes for the Rugrats and the Ending theme variant
