1st Logo

(July 18, 1980-April 1992)

Logo: On a black/gray gradient background, we see the text "WILL VINTON PRODUCTIONS" in gold with a smaller "INC." on its side at the end. The text is between two pairs of lines with a star at the top line. After a few seconds, "Claymation" is written out in blue below. A registered trademark "®" symbol is added at the end. This is mainly used at the beginning of Vinton's programs.


  • There is an in-credit variant that ends with the logo on a black background. The company name is in blue, and "Claymation" and the star are orange. The ® is also much smaller, and near the top of the N.
  • On A Claymation Christmas Celebration, the logo is on a black/red background, and the company name is in green.

FX/SFX: The writing of "Claymation".

Music/Sounds: A flourishing synth fanfare with a "ding" as the "®" is added. The in-credit version uses the end theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variant: There is a musical variation on ''The Raisins Sold Out'', which consists of an ascending piano tune, ending with a voice saying ''R'' as the registered trademark symbol appears.

Availability: Can be seen on old tapes of Will Vinton claymation specials, such as those with the California Raisins.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo


Logo: On a gray/white gradient background, we see the text:


--- S T U D I O S ---

in purple. "Will Vinton" is written in a sparkling script font similar to the Walt Disney logo, while "Studios" is sandwiched between two red lines.

Variant: On The Online Adventures of Ozzie the Elf, the logo (without the sparkling) is on a plain white background with "A" and "Production".

FX/SFX: The sparkling of the animated variant.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Rare; seen on TV shows and specials of the time, such as,The PJ's, and Gary and MIke. Also appears on the pilot Slacker Cats.

Editor's Note: None.
