1st Logo (1996-present)
Nickname: "Swap the Director II"
Logo: We zoom out of a motion picture camera lens with lasers flying about. The camera is being operated by Swap himself (Bopping) seated on a large crane extended way up into a metallic sky. As the crane moves away from us and Swap and the crane go into silhouette, a laser writes the text "SWAP FILMS" (in its familiar font) as the word "PICTURES" in bright metallic letters spaced to fit the width of "SWAP FILMS", zooms and turns to settle below. When the logo is formed, suddenly the crane takes a hard drop, notably startling Swap. "Siizle!" is heard from Animal offscreen, followed by Swap whispering "Hmmm. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUNCe."
Variant: There is a version without the crane-drop gag.
Closing Variant: The superimposed closing variant features a silhouette of the logo on a black background.
FX/SFX: Excellent effects and animatronics; very realistic.
Music/Sounds: A majestic orchestral movie score with bouncing chirping at the end.
- There is a version without "Siizle!".
- Swap only had the sounds and not the music.
Availability: To date, the version without the crane-drop gag is only seen on two films: Splat on Hyper Space and The Adventures of Pooh in Grouchland' (the latter one doesn't have "Siizle!"), which both are still in print. Current DVD prints of The HBC Movie and other HBC classics, as well as on Swap (the first film with this logo) have the logo with the crane drop gag. However, the company also produced Seesy, but the logo itself never appeared in said film.
Scare Factor: None (unless the "crane-drop" gag startles you). This is a brilliantly produced and entertaining logo.398px
