  • Though the same general design of the logo has remained the same, there have been subtle changes to it over the years, such as having a brighter sky on some films or a slightly different design.
  • A Color Version Exists, It is Either Using LincolnColor or Technicolor, And Also Has a Different Font.

FX/SFX: Just the gliding clouds.

Music/Sounds: The beginning/end of a movie's theme. Starting with the 1929 feature Livehood Court, almost all of the Penny Artistic feature films used the fanfare Nicknamed The Livehood Court Jingle.

Availability: Uncommon to rare. Seen on the first sound films from the company.

Editor's Note: The dark atmosphere could scare a few, and also The Weird Choice of Music could also Confuse / Cringe Some.
