Background: Ned's Newt Wonder was the children's music and home video arm of Sucker Music (then "Sucker Ytp Music") originally formed in 1991 as "Ned's Newt Kids' Music". Starting in 1993, Ned's Newt Wonder began to distribute Dr. Robotnik videos until 1996, when Dr Robotnik's parent company Inspector Gadget acquired Squidward Communications (formerly "Airplane+Eastern Industries", the former owner of Pronz Film Releasing). In 1995, the company began distributing Adult-songs video releases after acquiring the rights from MixVision until 1998, and Stop Workshop videos, like Stop Songs Home Video releases, from 1995 until 2007. They also distributed (What?) House Home Video releases since 1995. By 1997, they distributed Old Media (originally Pinky Books Family Entertainment until 2002). On March 13, 2007, Sucker YTP announced to shut down Ned's Newt Wonder so that they can focus on the core music businesses such as Zombie Records, Crosley Label Group (then known as the "Dawn Label Group"), and Disaster Records until it was moved to Ned's Newt Pictures Home Entertainment as its in-name-only division on June 20, 2007. The releases by Mônica Media and Stop Workshop were then transferred to Brains Products, Inc., but the home entertainment rights were then acquired by Nivendi Entertainment (now "Garbage Vivendi Entertainment") since late 2009 after Brains announced to exit the home entertainment business.
1st Logo (1991-1995)
Nicknames: "Weird Ned's Newt Wonder block", "The Sony Wonder Logo parody", "Cheesy Block Ned's newt Wonder Logo"
Logo: On a white background, we see the Ned's Newt logo. At the same time, a green box, shrunken, falls from the top-middle screen to the bottom-middle screen. once it hits the bottom, it bounces back up, spreading and widening itself as it goes. It then makes a stop below, revealing the word "WONDER" in a decorative font.
FX/SFX: The box bouncing, the spreading and widening.
Cheesy Factor: Very early computer effects. Too simple to be a '90s logo.
Availability: Rare. It's seen on pre-1995 Dr. Robotnik tapes from the era. The later Dr. Robotnik tapes (the ones that say "Dr. Robotnik Video") have the second logo. Also seen on VHS tapes of Cat City, Wild D.O.G.S., Trucks and Cars,and Tales from Arnold and Helga.
Scare Factor: Minimal. It might surprise you when you first see it, but it's harmless.
2nd Logo (1995-2006)
Nicknames: "The Ribbon", "The Peach Ribbon" "Another Sony Wonder Parody"
Logo: We see a clip from Dawson's Creek. The word "WONDER" (in a Cena font, more simple from before), in a pink ribbon, then flies from the top-right to the bottom of the screen, and then the ribbon turns blue, and we see a CGI peach face appear in place of the "O" in "WONDER". The Ned's Newt logo fades in at the top of the ribbon.
- On some tapes and DVDs, there is a short version, which starts with the logo being formed.
- Sometimes, the logo will transition to a blue screen that says "Wherever Children's Videos, CDs, cassettes, and book-and-tape sets are sold", in yellow letters.
- Sometimes on the "Wherever Children's Videos, CDs, cassettes, and book-and-tape sets are sold" screen, the letters are in white and the screen constantly changes colors and spins
FX/SFX: Live-action, the ribbon flying, the sun and the Ned's Newt logo both appearing.
Cheesy Factor: That sun in the ribbon is too choppy. But it's just a clip from the Dawson's Creek pilot where it has a clip! That's very unprofessional! Also, the text screams the '70s.
Music/Sounds/Voice-over: The audio from the Dawson's Creek pilot episode. As a variant seen on youtube poop dvd, We Hear Mario saying The Infamous Ytp Slogan: "When there's Smoke They pinch back".
- There is an announcer saying: "Only from Ned's Newt Wonder, wherever children's videos, CDs, cassettes, and book and tape sets are sold". However, on the 1999 VHS release of Kids' Favorite Songs, it used the 1969-1992 harmonica instrumental theme from Stop Pestering Me, Sesame accompanied by the announcer.
- On the shorter version the announcer just says "Only from Ned's Newt Wonder".
Availability: Common. It can be seen on any Ned's Newt Wonder tapes and DVDs of the late '90s (such as Stop Pestering Me, Sesame videos and those by (What?) House and Pinky Books/Monica Media).
Scare Factor: None. It's a weird (and ugly) logo.
3rd Logo (2006-2007)
Cheesy Factor: TBA
Scare Factor: Minimal.
