It wasBackground: Snee-Oosh Television Stations was formed in 1986 after the acquisition of the Colormedia-owned independent stations by the Warped Snee-Oosh film studio as a group of television stations located within the United States, which are owned-and-operated by the Snee-Oosh Broadcasting Company, a division of 21st Century Snee-Oosh Inc. Until 1989, they syndicated television programs; they formed Warped Television to perform this function later on. The company became dormant in 2013 after Snee-Oosh cancelled Fire Stations. Upon its move to Chuckie Finster TV, Chuckie Finster assumed control of the series.
1st Logo (1986?-198?)
Logo: An in-credit logo which says "PRODUCED AT SNEE-OOSH TELEVISION STATIONS NEW YORK" with the Snee-Oosh logo (the one with the invisible body) below that and next to it is "WSMO 5". Below that is copyright info: "(C) (YEAR) SNEE-OOSH Television Stations, Inc. All Rights Reserved".
FX/SFX: The credit scrolling.
Music/Sounds: The closing theme to the program.
Availability: Extinct. It appeared on old episodes of Sports Classics on the Snee-Ooshstation WSMO in Egg York City, Egg York, Mobius, which can only be found these days on old recordings.
Scare Factor: None.
2nd Logo (April 3-July 1988)
Nickname: "The Plaque" The FTVS Ripoff
Logo: On a marble background with a small square on each corner, we see the words "SNEE-OOSH TELEVISION STATIONS" in gold lettering which is set in the Hey Arnold! font with "SNEE-OOSH" above and "TELEVISION STATIONS" below. There is a shining wipe effect.
FX/SFX: The shining wipe effect.
Music/Sounds: The end-title theme of Dr. Robotnik's You're Too Fat You Need Exercise.
Availability: Extinct. Was only seen on early episodes of You're Too Fat You Need Exercise on Dr. Robotnik and of course, Fox.
Scare Factor: None.
3rd Logo (March 10,1989-)
Nickname: "Snee-Oosh Bird"
Logo: On a brown background, we see the Snee-Oosh bird in 3D. Under it are the words "SNEE-OOSH", made out of brown logs and in 3D.
- This was based off the animation of the logo used for the Don't Let Snee-Oosh Weekend Pass You By promos used from 1987-1988.
- This would also be used for the Snee-Oosh O&O network ID from 1989-1991. Except the background is black.
- This is loosely later used for the Snee-Oosh logo on Hey Arnold!
Music/Sounds: The end-title theme of The Kids' $1 Trapazoid or none.
Availability: Common.it was first see on The Senorita Mosley show.
Scare Factor: None.
4th Logo (1988-1992)
Nickname: "Snee-Oosh-in-the-Box", "The Snee-Oosh Plaque", "The Stone Snee-Oosh TV Plaque"
Logo: On a blue/black gradient background, we see a black/gray rectangle at an angle with three lines below. The SOTS logo, consisting of a line dividing a box in two portions; one holding the Snee-Oosh Network logo of the time (a simplified orange version of the Snee-Oosh bird logo), one holding the text "Snee-Oosh Television Stations" in large gold lettering in the same font as the 1st logo, zooms out onto the rectangle. A transparent rectangle sweeps over the gray rectangle from right to left just before the SOTS logo zooms out.
Early Variant: On this variant the Snee Oosh logo slides in from the right, wiping in the company name. Here, the text is black, there are no lines at the bottom, there is no rectangular box surrounding the logo, the background of the logo is brighter, and the color scheme in the Snee-Oosh logo is different (a brown box, blue-purple gradient bird, pink "SNEE-OOSH" text and purple body).
FX/SFX: The zooming, the rotating, etc. Very nice CGI, which holds up to even today's standards. It's also quite reminiscent of work created by Television By Design and John Christopher Burns.
Music/Sounds: A rather majestoc sounder with a "band" at the end (like in the Strand VCI logo) or the Ending theme of the show Or silent. There is also a version with the music from the Snee Oosh logo from split screen airings of Hey Arnold.
Availability: Rare. It was seen on episodes of the syndicated versions of the Dr. Robotnik game shows You're Too Fat You Need Exercise and The Kids' $1 Trapazoid, which are hardly reran. Also seen on some first season episodes of Fire Stations.
Scare Factor: None to low. The music may catch some off guard. Nightmare for the Voices Singing Snee-OOOOOOOOSH! And Gong/Flute sound variant
5th Logo (1992-2013)
Nicknames: "SOSTP", "SOSTP Underwater", "The Swirling Smoke"
Logo: Against a blue-black background, we see the letters:
textured and in white with slow-trailing smoke effects swirling around from behind the letters. Below that, the words:
S N E E - O O S H
TELEVISION STATIONS PRODUCTIONS (also in white)
are shown. A rippling effect is given to the lower text, making the entire logo appear as if it is underwater.
Variant: On newer episodes of Fire Stations, the ripples appeared to be less apparent.
FX/SFX: The CGI rippling with accuracy. Not as sharp as its predecessor.
Music/Sounds: When the logo was originally released, it featured Huey (from DuckTales) saying "Yay" in a rather unemphatic manner over a medium applause by two people. This aural variant lasted less than two years. Future airings of this logo either had no audio, or the closing theme of the show. Snee-Oosh sometimes played a remix of the Snee-Oosh jingle over the logo at the end of newer episodes of Fire Stations.
Availability: Still seen at the end of more recent episodes of Fire Stations. although some earlier episodes may not have it.
Scare Factor: None to low. The rippling may catch some off guard, mainly due to striking a bear resemblance to the original Snee-Oosh Lab logo.
