1st Logo
(1999-2000)

Nickname: "Viacom Wigga-Wigga Rip-Off"

Logo: On a shaded blue background, a silver "I" flies from the bottom left and then backwards. As it does so, a line comes out of it to form the other letters in the name (it shines as it does this), with the "T" and "P" still taking the form of lines, forming the word, "T.o.P.". The word "T.o.P." shines. A line slides in from the right and forms into "PRODUCTIONS", after which the "T" and the "P" in "T.o.P." shine.

FX/SFX: The CGI coiled line turning into "T.o.P.".

Cheesy Factor: The other letters in the logo seem to "crash" from the lines rather than the lines just morphing into them, which becomes apparent once the animation is slowed down. Also, the excessive shining makes this look somewhat gaudy.

Music/Sounds: A new age-type horn rock music is used, complete with piano, a horn and even a trumpent. Telephone-like "wigga-wigga" sounds are heard as the line wipes.

Music/Sounds Variant: On some episodes of The Videos, a timpani drum beat is heard first, leading into a jingle played on a guitar being heard as the line wipes. As the logo finishes, a faint hum is heard in the background.

Availability: Rare. Can be found on earlier episodes of The Videos on Fox Family and on DVD.

Scare Factor: Minimal for the "new age" variant. Some might be caught off-guard by dramatic FX. None for the guitar variant.

2nd Logo
(2000- )

Nicknames: "Viacom Wigga-Wigga Rip-Off" II, "ViaBot Parody"

Logo: This one is similar to the previous logo. First we see the letters of "T.o.P." in front of each other, spreading out. The background is full of "Wigga-Wigga"-type "T.o.P. PRODUCTIONS" letters along with a smoke effect slowly clearing out. The text appears with "PRODUCTIONS" under "T.o.P." with the words "Independent Production Company" with a line above it.

Variants:

  • A still version of this logo exists.
  • Around 2007, the logo was slightly enhanced with the words bolder.

FX/SFX: The letters spreading out, the smoke.

Music/Sounds: A descending crystallized whoosh-like sound effect culminating in a synth guitar broken, followed by a robotic woman voice saying the word "T.o.P.". The robotic woman voice was shortened in 2010.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • There is also a silent variant.
  • A version in which the whoosh sound effect plays faster also exists.
  • A sped-up higher pitch version also exists.

Availability: Uncommon. Can be currently seen on The Videos on FOX Family and ABC Family since the second season. When the episode Robot Home Video aired in 2000, due to an editing mistake on Fox Family's part, the 1997 David E. Kelley Productions "Old Woman" logo was shown in place of this on airings with split-screen credits. And on November 30, 2002, during an airing of the episode "Barney Friend Video", this was replaced with the Hartbreak Films logo.

Scare Factor: Minimal bordering on low. The robotic woman voice may get to some.
