1st Logo (1914-????)

Sorry, we don't have info on this logo, hopefully we get info on this.

2nd Logo (Mid-1980s)


Logo: On a black background, the words "HAL ROACH STUDIOS" in orange and in an Art Deco font appears. The word "presents" in white appears below it. Hal Roach Studios

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None, but, as a result of plastering, the fanfare from whatever logo on the original print would play over this one.

Availability: Practically extinct. Was seen on Roach's Award Quality Movie Greats VHS collection, which has been out of print for years.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (1985-1986)


Logo: We see the in-credit text saying:




with the byline "A Division of International HRS Industries, Inc." below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of Kids Incorporated.

Availability: Extinct. It was seen on 1985-1986 episodes of Kids Incorporated.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo (Mid 1980s-1988)

Nicknames: "The Whoosh Box", "UAV's Cousin", "The Loud Box", "Box of Doom"

Logo: On a changing brownish gradient background, we see a silver box reading:


in an angular, art-deco font shifting from the right. The box has line borders between each name. After it stops shifting, a bar of light shimmers the box from the right, eventually stopping.

Variants: At the beginning of television shows and some distributed movies, a silver bar with "P R E S E N T S" is shown. Some programs feature the copyright line below the logo.

FX/SFX: The shifting.

Music/Sounds: 2 loud whooshes. Sometimes, only 1 whoosh is heard. Other times, the end title theme from any show carries over this logo.

Availability: Rare. Was seen on colorized versions of movies such as the Video Treasures release of It's a Wonderful Life. This also appeared at the end of early episodes of Kids Incorporated. The logo can be seen on The Laurel and Hardy Show on This TV and TCM broadcasts of Topper Returns.
